Address 6-8 Mitropoleos Str- 12 Nikis Str (Plaka)
Hotel Arethusa has the dated, exciting atmosphere of a hotel where much intrigue went down during Athens's turbulent 1960s and 1970s.
7.6 Guest Rating
Address 29 Athinas str (Psyrri)
Hotel Attalos is a good value for budget travelers. A relaxed throwback to the 1970s, it's less shiny than it is dependable.
8.3 Guest Rating
Address 55 Themistokleous Str. (Exarchia)
The hotel's 50 rooms are very plain, yet there's something restrained and even elegant about these rooms, in a simple, institutional 1970s aesthetic way.

Address Apollonos 27 (Plaka)
Hotel Kimon's comfortable, even stylish rooms are some of the most affordable in heavily touristed Plaka.

Address 13, Voulgari str. (Omonia)
You can use one of the Marina's 81 clean and comfortable rooms as your base for exploring Athens, just don't expect to luxuriate there.
Address 46 Mitropoleos Street (Plaka)
Metropolis's extremely clean rooms have beige walls, run-of-the-mill beds, wardrobes, bedspreads, and desks, all of which serve their utilitarian purposes without bothering themselves with style.

Address Em.Benaki 105 & Anexartissias Street (Exarchia)
The Orion vibe is very relaxed. If you're a European university kid in Athens for a few nights, this is a great place to crash.

Address 7 Kapnikareas & Mitropoleos (Plaka)
First and foremost, the Plaka is a capable hotel, with especially good rates considering the hotel's location in the heart of heaviliy tourist-trafficked Athens.

Address 13 Odysseos St., Karaiskaki Square (Metaxourgio)
Situated in a relatively non-descript neighborhood, the Rio is a 10-minute walk from the National Archaeological Museum and equally close to the trendy Psiri and Thisseio neighborhoods.

Address 12 Ag. Assomaton Street (Psyrri)
Jason Inn's 56 rooms are both adequate and a good value, particularly in the off-season. Its location, near Keramikos, is a real plus.
7.4 Guest Rating
Address Anastasiou Zinni 35, Koukaki (Koukaki & Makrygianni)
Located down a little alleyway in the relaxed 'hood of Koukaki, Marble House provides an exceptionally quiet budget bed.
Address Nikis Street 27 (Plaka)
Niki's 23 rooms are tidy, streamlined, modern affairs. Wall-to-wall brown carpets provide an earthy nuance.

Address 16 Herefondos Str, Plaka (Plaka)
While the Phaedra doesn't have some of the modern amenities that most budget hotels in Athens now proffer, its reasonable rates, superb location, and compassionate staff are its big selling points.

Address Odysseos 1- Karaiskaki Sq (Metaxourgio)
Boasting 389 rooms, the Hotel Stanley is by far one of the larger hotels in Athens.
8.1 Guest Rating
Address Aiolou 29 (Monastiraki)
Tempi Hotel's affordable rates, bare-bones rooms, and friendly staff combine to make it both a great deal and a welcoming budget guesthouse.
Address Kydathinaion 16, Plaka (Plaka)
The Student and Travellers Inn's bright rooms are clean and comfortable, decked out in vibrant yellow and blue.
Address Sofokleous 27 (Omonia)
If all you want is a safe, centrally-located place to crash at the end of the day, then this is definitely one of the least-expensive places in Athens.
