Athens is the main entrance to Greece for more than 11 million tourists per years. Athens is the main stop over to the islands as well as a city of Historical importance with its monuments and historical sites , therefore for someday many visitors will stay in Athens to see the city and its sites. The last 20 years it has been a huge improvement in the hotels and the accommodation infrastructure of Athens. Many newly build hotels have been rise around the Athens centre and the coastal suburbs. The Olympics brought a huge boost of the hotel industry of Athens and almost all hotels and other accommodations offer all kind of comforts to satisfy the most demanding clientele. In Athens you will find hotels of all categories and stars. Most of the Athenian hotels in the centre are in the areas near Acropolis, in Plaka, in the area around Omonia square, In Kolonaki at Lycabettus hill slopes, around the Parliament square as well as in Sygrou Avenue and all the Athenian Riviera from Faliro to Glyfada, Kavouri, Voula, Vouliagmeni , Varkiza, Lagonisi. There have been build new hotels at the new Athens Airport like the Sofitel hotel and the Holiday inn. Except the luxury hotels in Athens you will find Youth hostels in Plaka and camp sites in Varkiza. Many hotels located also in Athinas street , around Karaiskakis square (near to the main train station) and at Pireos street near Omonia. For those that want to find accommodation not in the centre of Athens the coastal resorts of Attica offer the best solution especially in the summer. The metro and the proastiakos rail, as well as the brand new road infrastructure make the access to those resorts very easy. Among them Rafina, Nea Makri, Loutsa and Sounion.
The choice of hotel in Athens reflects the kind of
visit the visitor is paying to the city. Travellers on
their own generally prefer a hotel in the city centre (Syntagma,
Plaka, Columns of Olympian Zeus, Makrygianni) or around
the perimeter of the core traffic zone (Syngrou,
Alexandras, Michalakopoulou Ave.), so as to be near the
most important sites. Within this area there are hotels
for every purse: from luxury to conventional to tiny
guesthouses (mostly in the Plaka district). Tour groups
usually prefer the large hotels in Syngrou Ave. and on
the outskirts of the city centre. Business travellers
generally stay in these places as well, since it is the
large luxury hotels that have the facilities they demand
(most now have executive floors with special services)
and that invest in conference tourism, providing meeting
rooms with ultramodern technical equipment.
Those who come to Athens on business for longer periods of time prefer the luxury service apartments, found both in the centre and in the northern and southern suburbs. The new airport and the Attiki Odos generated a need for hotels near those areas. Finally, the seaside hotels attract those who want to combine easy access to the city and the airport with a few days holiday by the sea.
The new era of Athens accommodation was marked by the total restoration of the Grande Bretagne, the Athens Hilton and the Grand Resort Lagonissi, you can find luxury hotels around Ekali and Kifissia, in Sounio and the historic centre, around Plaka and further down to the Athenian coast in Sygrou Avenue and many other places. You might not have the views of many Santorini hotels overlooking volcanoes and deep blue sea but you can enjoy hotels with glamorous rooms, impressive lobbies, gourmet restaurants, relaxing spas - fully reflecting the international trend that sees hotels as leading players in the good life and not just places for travellers to lay their heads.
