Monastiraki is a souvenir-hunting enclave with a difference. Apart from the dramatic backdrop of the Acropolis, its network of alleys and pedestrianized streets surround the remains of both the Greek and Roman agoras, adding the quaint concept that this is where the ancients also came to shop. Named after the tiny monastery church at its center, Monastiraki Square is a lively spot by day or night, with street peddlers vying for your attention to sell you nuts and sweets. Down beside the metro station, the official Flea Market is an unbroken row of souvenir shops until you come to antique-oriented Platia Avissinias, while Pandrossou Street on the other side of the square offers more tourist shopping. The pedestrianized street beside the Greek Agora is lined with cafés offering fine views.
After all of the crowds and heat of Athens in August, this lovely little museum was a perfect way to spend an hour or two. The displays are really well done with beautiful examples of traditional greek instruments and supplemented with great historical photos and art illustrating their use. There were a few interactive stations and kiosks to listen to...
It is a nice place with the best traditional Greek food I have ever try since I am in Greece. The staff is so nice and helpful. Thanks for your attention guys.
Es un lugar maravilloso con una comida grifa tradicional muy sabrosa. La atención del servicio fue genial, muy atentos y simpáticos. Gracias por todo chicos
We have been here twice. The platter "Variety before Beer" had a great combination of different typical greek food to share with your family. Portions are big. The service was very good. Also the price quality is really good. We highly recommend this place. Not in main tourist street so more quiet to enjoy the food.
I have had a lot of moussakas in my time but this one was close to perfect. Plus with the meal deal for 12 euros i received bread, a generous greek salad and a glass of wine included. My husband and i shared this and it was plenty for a light lunch. Warning you need a big appetite to finish...
Room was clean and cool and the location was perfect for atmosphere and access to train, shops and restaurants.
Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. So if you don't mind climbing a few steps and don't expect five star - this is the ideal budget place to stay!
The hotel is located just 10 minutes from Omonia metro station. Rooms are clean. Elevators are small, can accomodate 1 person with bags. Recommend to stay in top floors to reduce the otherwise noisy neighbourhood.
