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.
It used to be a temple for Areus, the god of revenge and punishment. Then was destroyed and buried. After a while, it was where Athen’s high court. Then it was a place Apostle Paul have a speech. This tiny hill was a great place for so many people, and now it’s tourist spot to look out Acropolis.
We only walked in briefly but it was such a nice place.
There are several floors of tall stacks visible from the lobby, really neat looking.
There were a lot of people there but not overcrowded, except for computer work stations which were very popular.
Cool place to visit, and sees like an awesome resource for locals.
I loved looking at these statement buildings as Greece asserted herself as a nation: the university, the academy and the national library. Do walk and look at them to appreciate Greece’s pride in her heritage.

We managed to find a table on our last night in Athens, we had been around Greece for a couple of weeks and were looking to have some greek but new dishes and try something a bit different for our last dinner. It was indeed a perfect choice! There is enough food to try either very traditional or more small...
Every time I am in Athens I visit this place to eat Rizogalo (rice pudding) my favorite Greek desert. Just love this place it reminds me of old Athens a very traditional place and very fresh products! I will be visiting this place always!!!!
Staffs, hotel, breakfast, location and rooms all great, the security guy was perfect, the hotel is very clean, breakfast is great with great quality of food and variety. sitting on their terrace morning time is perfect meditation
GYM is small and this is the only concerns but it works.
The hotel itself was very good and the staff were terrific. The location, while centrally located, was a bit of a concern. There were several produce stalls along the street. This caused us concern initially.
We stayed here for 2 nights in early September and would be unlikely to return given the location.
The hotel itself was good, friendly and helpful professional staff and the rooms were clean and well maintained.
The location on Omonio Square left a lot to be desired, particularly at night. There was always a large Police presence in and around...
Had an enjoyable stay there, good location, close to shopping districts and restaurants. Helpful reception staff who were happy to make recommendations for places to go. The room was very modern, clean, comfy beds. Breakfast buffet has a great selection. Would stay again.
This is a very decent hotel for the amount of money you pay (87e/night in my case). The location is very good, the rooms are clean, the breakfast is above average (there are too many options). The only problem that I had was the very very small shower (1m x 1m, something like that). Literally you cannot move in there....
