Athens: Hotels

The Ancient Capital of Greece

Athens Hotels

Like any other large European city, Athens offers a vast array of hotel accommodation and whatever you’re looking for in a hotel, Athens is sure to have it somewhere. The Plaka and Syntagma areas are very central and handy if you want to be close to the main sights, but these areas can also be noisy at night. Hotels here range from cheap family run guesthouses to stylish boutique hotels and upmarket hotels with views of the Acropolis. The chic Kolonaki district has some fine upscale hotels, while international chains like Hilton also have hotels in Athens. The grandest hotel in Athens, the Grand Bretagne, has been entertaining wealthy visitors since 1862. Most mid range and upmarket hotels can be booked online, and the local tourist office will be able to help you with recommendations and reservations.
