Looking for a place to stay in Athens? You don't need the wisdom of Aristotle to find a spot to rest your head—you just need to know what you're looking for. With our help, you'll find a wealth of Athens hotels to suit every style and budget. You'll be checking in before you can say "opa!"
If you want to be in the middle of the action, a hotel in Athens near famous Syntagma Square should be top of your list—public transport options are numerous and you'll be a stone's throw from cafés, shops, and plentiful people-watching.

How to Spend a Day in Athens
Hotels in Athens are as pleasant as they come, but that doesn't mean you'll want to spend your whole trip in your room! Venture out for a real Greek adventure, starting with a stroll through the gorgeous National Gardens of Athens. Spend the day with your jaw agape at the National Archaeological Museum, grab a drink in nearby Exarcheia, browse the boutiques of the Kolonaki area, and don't even think about missing the New Acropolis Museum, recently opened in 2009. Wander back to your Athens hotel—stopping to sample the local ouzo on the way, of course—and fall into bed happy and exhausted, ready to hit the Greek capital again the next day.
