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 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 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.
Address Odysseos 1- Karaiskaki Sq (Metaxourgio)
Boasting 389 rooms, the Hotel Stanley is by far one of the larger hotels in Athens.
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 Marnis 46 (Omonia)
Golden City is a big tourist hotel with 91 surprisingly elegant rooms, located not far from Omonia Square.
Address Kodrou 3 (Plaka)
The cash-only Hotel Adonis is situated on one of the quietest pedestrian streets in Plaka, one of Athens' oldest and quaintest 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.
Address 39, Athinas (Psyrri)
Cecil Hotel, one of our fave Athens hotels, maintains a charming, friendly Old World feel.

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.
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 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.
Address 32,Ag.Konstantinou Str. (Omonia)
The comfortable Hotel Achillion offers tastefully decorated rooms without tastefully-decorated-room prices—it's a win-win combination.
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.

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.

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 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.
