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.

Carolina Hotel, Athens

Address 55,Kolokotroni Street (Plaka)

We appreciated the Carolina's old-fashioned cage elevator, reminiscent of the late 19th century. And loved the roof terrace, which made us feel like we were on top of the world.

Hotel Arethusa, Athens

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.

Hotel Achilleas, Athens

Address Lekka Str. 21 (Plaka)

The Achilleas's 36 comfortable rooms are more business class than basic. Beds are comfortable, though there are no stylistic thrills here.

Jason Inn, Athens

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.

Dioskouros Hostel, Athens

Address 6 Pittakou Str. (Plaka)

Simple and unadorned, Dioskouros's 17 rooms set up shop in a rambling building that feels more like a retrofitted mansion than a purpose-built hotel.

Hotel Plaka, Athens

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.

Hotel Rio Athens, 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.

Epidavros, Athens

Address 14, Koumoundourou str (Omonia)

If you're the kind of budget traveler for whom "budget" is a priority and not merely a preference, then the Hotel Epidavros, despite its uninspiring location and uninspired décor, is worth considering.

Zeus Hostel, Athens

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.
