Top tips for finding the perfect Athens hotel

If you are searching for hotels in Athens near all the historical sights, consider staying in a hotel in or around the areas of Monastiraki or Anafiotika (part of Plaka). Adrian Hotel is a good choice, close to the Acropolis and Parthenon as well as other key cultural sights.
Glyfada is an affluent suburb of Athens by the beach. Connected to central Athens by tram, the district is a good place to stay for those looking for a beach vacation with opportunities for day trips to historic sights.
Athens International Airport is about 20 miles from the city centre, so if you are jetting off on an early or late flight, consider an airport hotel for your arrival or departure.
There are several nice hotels close to the airport with free airport shuttle, such as the Dolce Attica Riviera, or you stay at the Sofitel Athens Airport hotel and simply walk to the terminal.
Steeped in history, impressive Syntagma Square is one of the most famous public squares in Greece, and is a renowned meeting point for Athens locals.
A number of excellent hotels are located within walking distance of Syntagma Square, including the King George, a Luxury Collection Hotel and Njv Athens Plaza.
It’s no secret that Athens can get extremely hot in summer. If you’re planning a trip during warmer months, make sure you find a hotel with a pool, such as the Fresh Hotel or Dorian Inn Hotel, to cool off after a long day of sightseeing.
