This place isn't near the water but I loved it, it's the Acropolis View Hotel with a wonderful view from the rooftop garden. I felt very safe there. I was there with my mom but she had to leave a few days before I did and I felt safe walking around the base of the Acropolis alone and into the town from there and to the Plaka. The staff at the hotel is wonderful and the rate was only $56 for a double. It included a very nice breakfast. If you are there for a couple days, you can sign up for tours and they tour bus picks you up in front of the hotel and drops you off there. I had planned to take a day cruise by myself when my mom left but we wound up taking the day cruise twice while she was there and so I just hung around the area and also enjoyed sitting on the rootop looking at the view of the Acropolis. That's the only hotel I can recommend in Athens and I would definitely go there again. I booked it over the Internet. Carol Mueller in San Antonio
