Don't worry if you can't read Greek characters, this station just like others offer multilingual guidance. Sometimes you can also find staff standing next to ticket machines ready to help you. Don't hesitate to ask, they speak English well. All purchases are in Euro only.

We got lost a few times, but found our way back to Syntagma. Athens is indeed a challenging city. All in all we enjoyed our holiday. Not sure we could navigate like this on a daily basis!!

Syntagma station has been open for around 15 years now, fronting a project that many said would never be built but the Olympic Games in 2004 gave a thrust to such projects. The station itself sits at the head of Syntagma Square and directly underneath...More

Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is
Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament
building on its upper side and surrounded by other
large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande
Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia
are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like
the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia
Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents,

I didn't see any inside the station itself, but, a quick look online reveals there may still be a third party offering luggage storage "a few meters away" from Syntagma station.
