The elongated Panathenaic Stadium, built for the first modern Olympic Games in 1896, acts as grand gateway to the otherwise purely Athenian neighborhood of Pangrati. This area of typical small squares, busy main roads and residential streets will give you a clear sense of what living in this metropolis is like. A walk up quiet Markou Mousourou Street on the west side of the stadium will bring you past the First National Cemetery to Mets, home to many expats. Turn right to reach the charming Platia Varnava. East of the stadium, commercial Eratosthenous Street leads to rather nondescript Platia Plastira, from where Effranoros Street continues uphill to Platia Profiti Ilia, crowned by a huge church.

I truly appreciate the 24/7 staff on the reception. We came in pretty late from our flight but the receptionist was still very courteous, helped us with our luggages, gave tips around the neighborhood and book our taxi for that day.
The location is within the vicinity of the tourist spots but note that it will take you a 20-minute...
Good value, and not a long walk from the main sights. There are also a lot of local busses. Cozy, and staff member George was lovely and helpful. As a solo female traveller I did not appriciate the inappropriate attention given to me by staff member Terry. Also came into the room several times to look for me even if...
