Delphi Note: Destinations featured above are not listed by rank. Where to Stay in Athens The best places to stay are the areas surrounding Acropolis Hill, including Plaka, Syntagma, and Monastiraki. Many of Athens' top tourist spots are clustered within these districts & are easily reached by walking. Some areas of Thissio/Makriyanni, Koukaki, and Psiri that are conveniently located as well. Make sure to check if the property is located near the Acropolis or Monastiraki metro stations. Consider Omonia and Kolonaki/Lycabettus (Likavittos) if you want to get away from the main tourist districts & experience the more local side of Athens.

Remember to set your min/max price, travel dates, and sort by review ratings. I often book online with these trusted booking sites below for rock-bottom prices & convenient bookings. AgodaAirbnbBooking.com Book sooner rather than later if you already have your dates set. Cheaper-priced rooms and hotels with high reviews tend to get fully booked faster, especially during busy days like weekends, holidays & peak tourist seasons.
