Useful Information about Family-friendly Hotels in Athens
Make sure to book your hotels in advance especially if you plan to travel to Athensduring the peak season (start of May up to towards the end of October).
Ideal accommodation for families is in the areas of Plaka, Syntagma and Monastiraki.
Athens as a city is secured but it has some cities that may not be as enticing as the others. I highly suggest to not book your accommodation beyond Plaka’s north and keep your options until Sofokleous’ south.
Book your accommodation near the metro station of Monastiraki to easily transfer to your ferry the next day. The subway directly runs to the port from Monastiraki station. You can spend the night in the hotel A for Athens. It is just walking distance to Acropolis, Plaka and the train station.
Athens’ main attractions can easily fit in a jam-packed whole day itinerary. For free and easier pacing, you can allot at least 2 days to 3 days to tour around Athens.
If there is one Athens’ tourist spot you should not miss, it is the Acropoliswith Parthenon. For fast track access to Acropolis, you can check out GetYourGuide.
