Where do you recommend to stay regarding Hostels or cheaper apartments in an area where you can walk to most tourist spots in Athens.
Dave Briggs says
The absolute cheapest part of Athens still within walking distance of the historic center is in Omonia. There are some lower end hotels there. It’s not a very nice area though.
If you are an experienced, broad-minded traveler you’ll find the area fine. If you’re not, you probably won’t enjoy staying there!
A lot comes down to what sort of price you are looking at and the time of year you want to stay in Athens.
I use Booking and then just narrow down to places in my price range.
