My daughterand I stayed at this hotel and felt quite safe. All the staff spoke English. We were just blocks from the Metro, and nice restaurants to try at night. The complimentary breakfast was quite nice-4 kinds of cold cereal, 4 kinds of bread, eggs,sausage, 4 kinds of fruits, honey and yogurt , and an assortment of teas, coffee,and juices. Our room was clean-with an air conditioner,flat screen tv, and small fridge.Free wi-fi was nice also.
Unique Quality: The location was perfect- we were just a few blocks from the Metro and were able to walk everywhere- from the National Archeological Museums to the Parliament to the Acropolis. Margarita, at the front desk was incredibly helpful with maps, ideas,and directions.
Although the hotel itself was okay, I had a very bad stay. Below my window (at the back of the building) was a small, concrete balcony. The owner of this balcony kept his dog there 24/7. The dog was living in very poor conditions (no shelter from the sun, his own droppings everywhere, no attention from his owner whatsoever etc.) Every now and then the dog started barking or howling for attention. It was awfull to see the dog living under these circumstances and it made my stay at the hotel a very unpleasant experience.

Hello everyone. I will be in Athens in May and am looking for a nice place to stay. I'm not looking for a 5 star hotel. What I'd like is a small place, perhaps bed and breakfast, that doesn't cost too much and gives you a more intimate feel of Greece. Thanks!

True, I have read comments that at night, it's not a safe place. But we stayed there overnight, 2 ladies with Oriental faces, and had no problem. We did get "home" before dark.
The only problem is if you have to walk a certain distance from the subway or metro station. But we got the metro from the airport direct to hotel, one ride.
People at the information counters were very helpful.
Sorry, that should have read "The problem IS you have to walk a certain distance...." but as I said we got along fine with luggage on wheels, bumping along the uneven sidewalks.

You could try the Adonis hotel, near Plaka and the Syntagma metro station. It is not too big, the breakfast is nice but not too much but with great vieuw towards Acropolis. It is in the pedestrian-aerea,so not too much car noise. Sometimes you hear noise in the hotel from people leaving. The telephone number is 210 3249737-8 The receptionists and staff is very helpfull!
