Melia Hotel Athens Location - good walking distance about 15 mins walk to the Plaka. The area around the hotel looks a little jaded but don’t worry that is Athens. It has lots of graffiti. We walked back from dinner in the Plaka late on a Saturday night without a problem. Rooms - good size rooms comfortable and modern bed...

Absolutely loved this hotel a little far from the action. In a locals area with markets on the streets. Walking distance to Monastiraki. Great deal for the price with a rooftop pool overlooking the Acropolis.

We have stayed in Melia hotel Athens only for 2 nights in the beginning of August. The transport from the airport was quite long, by the metro it took about 50 min.

I've stayed in 4 hotels in Athens and this is the first I would return to. Lovely bedrooms with my comfy beds. The rooftop is great - fantastic pool and nice bar with some tasty food. No issues with the area - thought location allowed easy walking to the main sites.

Staying in Exarchia

Neighbourhood Profile
Exarchia
Exarchia is in many ways Athens’ best-kept secret, discovered by relatively few international visitors. Located behind the main University and Polytechnic buildings, it is unsurprisingly home to many students, intellectuals and politicos. This is reflected in the area’s vibrant street art and graffiti, which seems to cover almost every inch of wall space. Some of the best Athenian tavernas are located here, as well as its most alternative bars and underground music venues. You'll find political bookshops and quirky stores here, yet it is also a neighborhood inhabited by families and older folk. On Saturdays, punks and grandmothers alike head for Kallidromiou Street, nestled below Strefi Hill, to pick up fresh produce at the traditional laiki agora (street market).
