This area is bursting with hotels, especially stylish little ones that make use of Psyrri's old mansion architecture. If you're planning to partake in Athens nightlife, this is the best place to be, and you won't mind that there's music everywhere till 2am (4am on weekends). Monastiraki is also very convenient if you're coming from the airport by metro. The area north of the market, closer to Omonia, has some unsavoury (though not explicitly dangerous) street life after the sun sets.
