Soho Hotel Athens Reviews
Average hotel in bad area but close to center Sep 26, 2012
I had a shared room, and it had regular beds not bunk beds, which I liked and it was the reason I chose it over some other hostels in the area.
Staff was helpful, had maps out right away, warned me about the shady area around the hotel, and gave lots of good info. There's free coffee and tea all day, although sometimes can be cold or they run out.
Room was big, with AC, TV, and a small fridge. Bathroom with a big tab that took so much space, but it was ok. And there was soap!
Their common room had a bar area, lots of tables and chairs, some couches, many books and board games, lots of maps and info on Athens and Greece, laptops for your use.
Free WiFi was working great, even in my room upstairs.
Location is in an area that everybody knows as bad. It was dirty and smelly, and staff told me to use taxi if I come after 10pm. However, it is very close to central Monastiraki square, 2 minutes walking. Also, it's steps from the Psiri neighborhood, full of bars and young people at night.
