What makes  “best places to stay in Athens”?

The term “best places to stay in Athens” is very subjective, when it comes to visitors of a city or area. What is a good place to stay, depends on a number of factors:

  • The exact purpose of a stay, be it a purely sightseeing trip, or a business trip.
  • Experience from previous stays in the same city, or in general.
  • The makeup of the travelers: if they are a couple, a family with children, a group of friends. Their age, their possible mobility limitations.
  • Budget restraints and considerations.
  • The number of days one would want to stay.
  • If the travelers will have a private means of transport (i.e. car), or would depend on public transportation.
  • The type of accommodations available at that particular place.
  • Personal preferences about aspects of stay and features of the accommodation.

Each one of those aspects plays a particular role in the choice of a place to stay during a trip. A traveler, after considering all of the above, can find a place that satisfies all of their needs and preferences. The traveler gets to choose from the available accommodations which are the best places to stay in Athens, for them. Athens is not different than most places in this regard!

Features of the best places to stay in Athens

The best places to stay in Athens for a visitor, would be those that satisfy most of the above factors. Regardless if it’s a hotel, a boutique hotel in Athens, or a short-stay apartment, it must have certain qualities:

  • It must be in the heart of Athens, or as close as possible. Near the famous ancient sites like the Acropolis of Athens, but also near the newest landmarks and the business centers. It must be in walking distance from the major sights, or at least near the focal points of public transportation. Thus, accommodations near central Metro stations like Psirri, Monastiraki and Syntagma, are the best places to stay in Athens. That is because they give access to the entire extensive Athens transportation network.
  • It should be easily adaptable to host a differing number of visitors each time. A solo business traveler, a couple or an entire family? Older ladies and gentlemen, or younger boys and girls? The accommodation must have the means to satisfy every traveler’s reasonable needs.

More Features

  • Affordable to a great number of visitors. Although cheaper sometimes equals worse, an affordable stay should not be of lower quality. Likewise, an overpriced accommodation is not automatically a luxurious one, nor the best place to stay in Athens. A price in the normal range, set up by the market, is essential for an accommodation to attract visitors.
  • An option to stay for shorter of longer periods of time. With sightseeing tourism and business tourism booming in Athens during the last years, the length of stay varies greatly. Due to the rise of the online booking platforms and the sharing economy, the management reservations is easier than ever! It is possible for a visitor to easily amend and change the length of stay, through the online platforms. For that, it is important for an accommodation to be listed on the major sharing economy platforms. It is even easier to come to an agreement about an amendment when you have a direct booking in an accommodation. In that case, the booker and the owner can have even better communication. Both of the options require availability on the part of the accommodation for the period selected!

And even more features of the best places to stay in Athens

  • Location near a major public transportation hub, like a central metro station of Athens is essential. However, certain tourists and many business travelers have their own means of transport, usually a rental car. For that, it is important that the accommodation is near a safe street parking area. Even better, the accommodation should be near a guarded parking space, open 24/7. In that way, guests can have total freedom of movement for their Private tours. They can also benefit from flat-price agreements for the guests, something that some accommodations near parking spaces in Athens have.
  • Combination of all types of accommodations. Besides the classic concept of hotels, the newer concept of boutique hotels is trending worldwide, and of course in Athens! This is because it better satisfies the needs of certain kinds of travelers. Many boutique hotels in Athens have standout designs and aesthetic qualities. They combine this with state-of-the-art amenities and personalized service to the guests. Also, they can have few rooms but all sport impeccable design and furnishings, with personal touches by the owners. A product of the boutique hotel concept is the boutique apartment concept. Visionary owners of apartments in former run-down buildings perform extensive renovations to them. They shape them according to their personal tastes and keep the vibes of the initial construction methods. Moreover, they then proceed to live in them, or offer them for short-stay, or long-stay, lease! Athens is a hotbed of boutique apartment activity, helped by the number of iconic buildings.

Nearly done!!

  • Satisfaction of the guests is the most important thing. Actually, it is the paramount goal of hospitality! An accommodation, whether it is a hotel, a boutique hotel or a short-stay apartment, must ensure this. Satisfaction is also a subjective matter, as features that satisfy some guests, can be impractical to others. The more someone travels and stays in different cities, the more experience he or she accumulates of accommodations. They tend to recognize what is important and what is not, in features and amenities. City center in considered to have some of the best places to stay in Athens and the whole Europe. This is due in part to the Greek tradition of hospitality, combined with the tourism growth of the last years!
  • Lastly, personal preferences and quirks are what makes the real difference on what is considered “good place to stay”. Each person is different and each experience unique. A good accommodation is one that satisfies different tastes equally, without jeopardizing quality, style and substance. It keeps the feel of the place, while simultaneously offering something for everyone. In the best places to stay in Athens, each guest can find something to suit his/her personal taste. Something that is in equal parts familiar and different and can make the stay memorable. The satisfaction of a personal quirk is what makes a good stay, a “perfect” stay. Athens as a city and Athens accommodations combine features that can satisfy that little “something”. Very few visitors left Athens without a special memory of a particular amenity that was “exactly what the wanted”!
