... bus tour. Anyway, rang the Trafalgar rep here in Athens...at 8.15pm.....no problem...they would ring and cancel for me....and there would be a full refund. The service is absolutely amazing. So, after the best breakfast ever....off on the Hoho bus round Athens. My first stop was The Acropolis Museum where they have finally housed all they have salvaged from the Acropolis in one museum. ( Not the Elgin Marbles though.... But don't get them started on that! I heard several ...
... some guts, but they are absolutely doable for anyone. I purchased a fantastic Mediterranean port guide book by Rick Steeves from Amazon. I highly recommend it to anyone that is thinking of doing a Mediterranean cruise. He has also written a “Best of Europe” book for those who would like to fly instead of cruise. The book has saved Jason and me a lot of money by allowing us to feel confident to do our on tours. He walks ...
... describe how much I'm enjoying it here) after exploring the top of the hill we made our way down to the Agora, the ancient offices, and to a few temples. The pictures should do most of the explaining. By now we were ready for lunch, so we both relaxed and enjoyed a chicken gyros each. By now we were already quite tired but we took a stroll around the centre and around the markets. Again - awesome. After that we ...

Historical Traveler Reviews O&B Athens Boutique Hotel
Great hotel, accomodating, hidden location
We stayed in this hotel for 5 days in September. The location is not in the best part of Athens and is in fact somewhat hidden (i.e. some of the taxi drivers do not know where it is) but it is within a couple block walk of the Monastiraki train station and old Agora. The rooms are clean and the bathrooms among the biggest in the various hotels we have stayed at. The breakfast, which is included, was excellent. Service was warm and hospitable. They charged for internet access but this seems the norm for Greece. There are some very good restaurants nearby but you need to know what you are looking for (good food over ambiance). Would definitely stay there again.
Don't be fooled by the swanky pictures on their web-site or the questionable reviews below.... this place is located in perhaps the worst part of Athens. The street is full of adult rated shops, discount mattress sellers and burned out shop fronts.
It was a real treat to stay at Ochre and Brown on our return from the islands this year. Above all, the staff were outstanding and made the stay memorable - service really could not have been better or more helpful or friendlier! We were absolutely delighted.
Trendy and super location
We find this hotel has a great location , very trendy and clean with a staff that did everything to please us.We stayed here 2 nights before returning home after a trip to Crete and Spetses it was perfect . We recommand this hotel ,it is a small hotel with a personal touch.
My wife and I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights at the end of our island hopping honeymoon, the hotel is stylish, intimate and in a good location for exploring Athens by foot, both day and night. Above all else the staff were extremely helpful and welcoming.

Perfect Hotel in Athens
I stayed at this hotel in Sept 2006. I found it to be very clean/ stylish with friendly staff. It was perfectly situated for two days sightseeing in Athens. I would strongly recommend this as a place to stay.
We stayed in the hotel for 2 days in April. It's very centrally located, only a few meters walk from the subway station. The hotel is new (it opened in December 2005).
The rooms are very clean and have very comfortable beds, new stylish furnishings and high-tech equipments (CD & DVD players...).
The breakfast is generous and the personnel polite, smiley and helpful. Taking all this into consideration, it was an excellent value for money.
The elevator is indeed small but since there are only 11 rooms in the hotel we never had to wait in order to use them.
We are looking forward to visit it again soon
Not so good
It is not so good. The staff is not so friendly and we had problem with the air-condition! The location is good but the hotel is not a four star hotel! The servibce is for two stars!
What an amzing little hotel! The Ochre and Brown is small but perfectly formed. It is stylish and comfortable and located in the coolest part of the city (Psiri) near to some great clubs and restaurants. The rooms are not huge but they are comfortable and have all the amenities you might require. But the best bit is the amazing service you recieve from really friendly and attentive staff..... nothing is too much trouble. The breakfasts are huge and really tasty by the way! Definately stay here if you can it's well worth the money.
Having just returned from a 4 night stay, we fully recommend Ochre & Brown to those looking for a really good non-chain modern exceptionally clean hotel very well located in the centre of Athens/near the main tourist sites and newly trendy districts of Psiri and Gazi.
