When I arrived in Athens (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Athens), late at night, who were the first folks to help me out...well, besides the friendly and clearly Greek, cabbies who gave me directions to the nearest internet cafe? It was a couple of Iraqis and an Afghani!
They seemed to manage or own the little internet cafe and immediately …
The adventure began on Monday 27th September, after many countless weeks at work, an overseas holiday was overdue!!! No better place than Greece. The love of Europe just continues with the accessibility of so many countries within a short flight. London to Athens was a nice 3½ hour flight. I left at the 2100 to arrive at Athens 225 (+2GMT) and had …
... islands, but NOT in Athens. Athens is essentially a crowded and dirty city with a poor economy. A poor economy means poverty and poverty means high rates of homelessness, drug use, and crime. That being said, I have never in my life felt so scared or unsafe in a city. Our hotel was decent but it was in a bad area and I was terrified every time I stepped outside. I was harassed by half the men I passed by and I just felt so degraded the entire time. ...
... long trade journeys.
Kelsey and I went to the Supermarket after class to stock up on the delicious Orange juice native to Glyfada. We also bought olive oil shampoos and conditioners to try to develop some shiny Grecian hair.
Lunch was in the hotel and was Greek lemon meatballs, spanakopita, broccoli and Greek salad. We then boarded the tram in late afternoon to travel to Mount Lycabettus, the highest point of Athens. It is a limestone hill and has a 1,000(ish) ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Best Western Museum Hotel Athens
My husband and I went to Athens for 3 nites. We wanted something not too expensive but no dive either and the BW Museum was good.
Une bonne adresse, assez économique à Athènes
Cet hôtel situé juste derrière le musée archéologique et à qq minutes à pied de la place Omonia, est un endroit très agréable pour résider dans la capitale grecque. Très récemment rénové, l'hôtel propose des chambres agréables et très propres. De surcroît les tarifs sont modérés par rapport à bien des hôtels athéniens. Vraiment une bonne adresse. En plus le bus qui s'arrête au pied de l'hôtel va directement à l'aéroport
I just returned form my 14 day trip to Greece to various locations. My first stop was to beautiful Athens. I found this Hotel at last minute to fit my family of five. The owner was great in helping me get my fmaily situated and everything. The location of the Hotel was not as great as some of the others but right behind the Archeological Musuem was a great position. I was traveling with two small childrenand i felt comfortable in the area at night walking around. We were a 5 minute walk to the Metro which took you direct to either Stymagna Square or Acropolis Station. From either one you have access to all the main sight in Athens. The hotel had a beakfast every morning starting a 0700 until 1000. It was a typical European/American breakfast. Everything was great. Occasionally cold with the Air condition in the morning but we all got passed it with some fresh coffee and tea. The rooms we stayed in was a family room with two beds with a fold out couch and a roll in cot. I have not complains about the sleeping arrangements we had plenty of space. The hotle offers a elevator and spiral stairway. The room was very comfortable with two seperate TV's, three phones,medium sized balcony, and with a bath and a half. (Shower with Toliet) The only complaint i had was the water in the shower would change unexpectatly from warm to cold and back without touching anything. The hotel had a smal bar in the lower lobby area for a starter before heading out during the night. I can not say anything bad about this hotel, I would definately recomend to family and friends.
I was in Athens for the Eurovision Song Contest. The entire city was packed and Hotel prices were high. This hotel said they had free Internet. It was free, that is when it worked. The Hotel staff had no idea of how to handle any issue so everything was left for chance.
We stayed here for 4 nights in March 2006 and, in the main, found it to be very good.
My boyfriend and I stayed in the Hotem Museum from 11th to 16th March, 2006. When we first arrived to this hotel they gave us a tiny room in the last floor (7th) with a small window facing residential buildings (we could cleary see what other people were doing just by looking through the window). We complained about it and we were able to change it for a bigger one with a large terrace, on the same floor. This room was good and clean and the terrace offered some good views and a sensation of open space. The deco was ok but it didn´t seem very new. The air conditioning could not be defined in its temperature, we could only choose to turn it on or off. But the main problem was the bathroom: instead of a bath tub there was a shower with a curtain that didn´t stop the water to go out and create a flooding in the bathroom. If you are thinking of staying in this hotel, make sure to ask for a bath tub and a balcony.
I was staying as a lone female traveller, taking a quick break in Greece (my first visit). Accomodation well-placed - 10 minutes to Omonia Station by foot and there is a bus stop immediately outside (although area very quiet) Interesting 'boho' kind of area behind the Museum and the Uni. Staff very friendly and helpful, breakfast perfectly ok (I have paid much more and obtained much less.) Rooms very clean, area quiet. The bar-man 'Steve' recommended a local restaurant which was very good - authentic and very reasonably priced, about 5 minutes walk from the hotel. All in all, a very good experience. I arrived having booked only 2 nights, not sure where I would go on to next, and decided to return in my week in Greece. Hope to go back next Summer and introduce my children to the wonders of this great country, people and culture.
Best Western Museum Hotel, Athens
Four of us stayed here in September 2005. The area was generally quiet, quite close to a number of restaurants, and of course right opposite the Archaeological Museum. The rooms were spotless. The buffet breakfast was just about adequate - lots to eat but not very good quality.The folks at reception were very friendly and helpful.
Stayed here for three nights in September, 2004, in a non-smoking room in the new wing. This hotel is superb. The room was spacious and very well appointed. Everything is new and of good quality. Located immediately behind the National Archaeological Museum and a fairly short walk to Omonia, which is the nearest Metro stop. The staff is helpful and pleasant. I will certainly stay again!
