Orion & Dryades

Hotel in Omonia & Exarhia

These two side-by-side hotels are up steep stairs at the tippy-top of Exarhia – far from tourist attractions, but with excellent views and the lively neighbourhood just below. Orion is a 1960s block with good balconies; Dryades has an old-mansion style and great big family rooms. Breakfast (€7) is bountiful and the rooftop terrace views panoramic.
