As a budget room ( €30 for a twin including breakfast) we were not expecting luxury. The furniture in the room was old and shabby but not a problem. Bed linen was clean and beds firm and comfortable. Breakfast was plentiful. Staff friendly and helpful. Omonia isn't the greatest neighbourhood, but we knew this. However cleanliness (or lack of) will...

The pictures were misleading, the hotel common areas were dirty and in bad condition, bad smell. It was likely that the room had not been cleaned prior to my arrival and the bottom sheet had a suspicious big and sticky stain which either did not come out when washed (and should be replaced) or is an indication that the sheets...

Although the location is convenient, it is close to the metro station and easy to go to other places. BUT, it is indeed not a safe area to stay, many homeless people hanging around. When I enter the hotel, I already feel it is absolutely not right, the reception is very old, smelly and nasty, one of the staff is...

A reviewer wrote: "no carpet in the halls or rooms..." I've been in many Greek hotels from cheap and cheerful to 5 star luxury and I've never seen carpets in any of them. I stayed for five days, the staff were friendly and the room adequate; I like hard pillows. Easy walking to the market, Acropolis and archaeological museum. Sure...

The Claridge in Omonia Square is not the best hotel in the world. But if you want a really cheap stay in the middle of Athens it's not that bad. It's just a couple of steps from the escalators to the Metro which is very handy for going to Pireaus. It's an easy walk to Montasteraki and Plaka, and up...

THIS IS THE WORST PLACE I HAVE SEEN IN MY LIFE! Please if you are looking for cheap accommodation look else where. The area is dangerous, the hotel is disgusting in the outside and in. Our bathroom had cochroaches and the sheets weird stains. The staff are rude and swore in front of me and this is just honestly the...

Claridge Hotel is a prime example of how "you get what you pay for". This is a below average hotel with dark, old rooms that clearly show their age. The receptionist wasn't terribly friendly either. The area where the hotel is located (Omonia Square) is not the best place in the world either. It's full of questionable characters (mainly illegal...

I booked this hotel through venere.com. The photos of the hotel on the website were pretty decent and nice.So i zeroed in on claridge after looking at various options. I got the deal for 48euros a night and booked for 3 nights. It was supposed to be our first trip to Greece and obviously we were very excited about it....

Staying in Omonia

Neighbourhood Profile
Omonia Square is as plain in appearance as Syntagma is grand. Surrounded largely by functional blocks from the 1950s and 60s and no longer boasting its underground stalls, the square is now mostly frequented by immigrants and bargain shoppers. The most rewarding area to explore is to the south. Set off down Athinas Street, with the Acropolis gradually coming into focus in the distance, and you will get a sense of old commercial Athens, especially at the picturesque meat, fish and vegetable markets some way beyond the City Hall. The blocks to the west of Athinas are home to many Chinese and South Asian traders, adding a multicultural atmosphere to what was until the late 1990s a very homogenous society.

“I You're a fussy and posh traveller - this place is not for You. Either You're searching for a comfort - the place is not for You. But! When it comes to a Low Budget decisions, the Claridge Hotel may attract You. First of all, it has a good location nearby the historical part of city. It's a busy street, with lots of people arround, especially in evening it may look unsafe, probably it is... It's a place where emigrants live. But the time I came to a city, there was police officers walking arround square, which makes a sence. Athenian municipallity cares for tourists, the city is full of policemen, even dressed in civil clothes ;-). Be careful anywhere, don't be sleepy and oblicious. This is busy street, like i said, but if You really want to sleep - You'll really find a bed to sleep. I've had a singe room, nearby the elevator, as i remember it was on 7th.floor. The bed was clean and comfy for my young bones. I slept well. I liked that there's a terrace with one chair, it was a pity that i didn't found a table outside. For smokers it's a good place to relax, even in city center. Something was special there, i thought. Special for movie makers, theatre directors. The atmospere in hotel brings You back to 80's or 90's of Athens. A small elevator is not for a big luggage, they should have a porter to carry them trough stairs, but if You'll go alone with Your things - it will fit You. Theese old elevators are like a time machine... Some magical lift up, take the stairs down - You'll find some antique TVs or funny pictures (one of them is with a clown). That's lovely to get inspired, even for one night :-). Owners are probably greeks, who speak a little english, one person was speaking russian, what my lady friends really enjoyed. If You know some words in greek (Yassas, Kalimera, Eucharisto, etc.) it will help You to find a sincere dialogue anywhere in Greece. My friends stayed in 407 room, they were three, it was a small room, but for a night they used beds and shower, even we didn't care about a comfort, becouse we went for a lunch to city and walked arround, enjoyed it, we've got a lovely experience, that's why we slept well. We were undemanding tourists. Repectionists must be more honest in hotel, think more about guest (people they meet, even not guests of hotel) the money must be in the second, first of all attention and hospitality to a person at front desk - and that place will shine again! Hope so... Once again, this is something untouristic, but i've found it interesting. Probably, You could find some good hostel in the city, for the same price with breakfast, but... Decide by Yourself, You are the Master of Your Eternal Journey!”
