Once inside the Ionis Hotel, it is a very pleasant place. The rooms are large, with balconies to sit and watch the weird goings on in the street below. The breakfasts are a delight. The staff are helpful and the rooms are clean. Sadly, the street in which the hotel stands is seedy, even by Omonia Square standards! I'd still...

We have really enjoyed staying in the Hotel Ionis and we have been here for a couple of weeks now. OK the streets around are unpleasant, but once inside the hotel is clean, friendly and excellent value. The breakfast is very good. The location is the major drawback and late at night there is a feeling of 'running the gauntlet'...

The room was well cleaned and linen changed daily. The front desk was very helpful. You feel a bit unsafe since you can see the prosstitudes and drug addicts roam around. Otherwise the place is well worth of money.

walking into a convenience store less than fifty metres away from the ionos hotel, a woman approached me and my three friends and told us that we should be wary of our bags, money and documents because we were in a dangerous area. walking back from our search for rations, so as to not have to leave the room again...

the breakfast alone was worth the very reasonable price, of course a few migrants and hookers, but like stray dogs i left them alone and they left me alone.

I recently stayed at this hotel. The location admittedly was not that fantastic, just like any hotel in downtown area of any major city in the world. However the metro was just 3 minute walk away and all major places of interest were totally easily accessible. The reception was wonderfully friendly and helpful and went the extra mile to take...

Along with most of the other reviews I would like to start off stating that the location however convenient, it was very sketchy. The staff is very very very helpful and the rooms are decent. Breakfast was simple but is expected in Greece.

I work in anti human trafficking. I was surprised to find easyjet reccomended this. It is two doors from the casino where pimps meet, there were Romanian girls prostituting within 30 metres. We passed a guy injecting heroin in his groin, trousers down outside the hotel. Nice hotel otherwise, although not for families or children, internal landing huge windows are...

Staying in Omonia

Neighbourhood Profile
Omonia Square is as plain in appearance as Syntagma is grand. Surrounded largely by functional blocks from the 1950s and 60s and no longer boasting its underground stalls, the square is now mostly frequented by immigrants and bargain shoppers. The most rewarding area to explore is to the south. Set off down Athinas Street, with the Acropolis gradually coming into focus in the distance, and you will get a sense of old commercial Athens, especially at the picturesque meat, fish and vegetable markets some way beyond the City Hall. The blocks to the west of Athinas are home to many Chinese and South Asian traders, adding a multicultural atmosphere to what was until the late 1990s a very homogenous society.
