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 Kydathinaion 16, Plaka (Plaka)
The Student and Travellers Inn's bright rooms are clean and comfortable, decked out in vibrant yellow and blue.
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 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 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.

This family-run hotel has a nice location in Plaka, the oldest and most charming of Athens' neighborhoods.

Address Mitropoleos 19 & Pentelis 7 (Plaka)
Tucked away behind an Asian rug shop, the 46-room Hotel Amazon gives you convenient access to the most appealing parts of central Athens but muffles both the noise and hassle.
8.3 Guest Rating
Address Apollonos 19 (Plaka)
Hotel Hermes' 45 rooms are serviceable and on the roomy side, with blond wood floors, curved desks, and gentle lighting.
8.5 Guest Rating
Address Nikis Street 27 (Plaka)
Niki's 23 rooms are tidy, streamlined, modern affairs. Wall-to-wall brown carpets provide an earthy nuance.
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.
7.2 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.
Address 39, Athinas (Psyrri)
Cecil Hotel, one of our fave Athens hotels, maintains a charming, friendly Old World feel.

Address 79 Evripidou Str (Psyrri)
While Evripides is a total plain jane, it's also very clean and inexpensive.

Address Ag. Dimitrou 18, Monastiraki (Psyrri)
Hotel Arion, which opened in time for the 2004 Olympics, perfectly expresses the affordable Athenian boutique hotel impulse.
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.
