We found this hotel that fit our budget but after booking were scared after reading many reviews that made it out to be the worst place in the world. After contacting the hotel owner (Mike) I was reassured that my family would be safe, clean and cool (our criteria).
I told my family we should try it one night and then if necessary we will move for the other 4 nights. To our surprise the rooms, bathrooms and kitchen were spotless. The rooms were safe and the building is controlled by CCTV. We were not the only ones that found Athens House Hostel acceptable - 3 nights in the row I found 4-6 people sleeping in the lobby when I got up at 5am to write. Rooms were full, people friendly and helpful.
We also liked the fact that we could walk to all the sites, stores and restaurants.
This is the best priced, safest, cleanest centrally located hotel/hostel you can find in Athens!!
We were glad to have included this for 5 days of our Around the World in 80 Days trip! http://blog.travelpod.com/travel-blog/maaske/6/tpod.html

After that we wandered through the National Gardens and made our way to the Zappeion, but unfortunately could only zig zag through the crowds of marathon runners instead of seeing the exhibition hall that was established in conjunction with the first modern Olympic Games held in Athens. (so sorry no ...
... night and again on a 5 minute bus ride this morning.
The Greece trip has 49 people on it and already not all of them are time conscious. Hmmm could be interesting but will await developments. Missing my buddies from the Turkey tour! We formed a back of the bus coalition (BOBC) and, when the rest of the crazy tourists manoeuvred their way to the favoured front seat position we remained (for the most part) locked to our seats in ...
... in size, I had dinner from first class and they were very attentive. We gave them a great wrap in the survey.
We arrived at our hotel in Athens last night about 8.00. Showered and then went off to dinner where we had lots of salads and salads. It was lovely to be sitting outdoors eating and not freezing. The weather is sunny, hot and not a could in the sky.
The view from our hotel terrace is gorgeous and I ...

So, we decided to go down to Piraeus, a port town on the
coast, not far from Athens. We caught the “hop on – hop off” Athens explorer
bus down to the port. The port had huge docking areas for all types of
boats……..from huge cruise ships to luxury pleasure boats down to tiny, quaint
