Kim, the most interesting part of Athens is the area near the Plaka.
Sometimes it can be difficult to get rooms there that are reasonably
priced. We were there for two nights, and had trouble finding vacancies
anywhere at any price. We finally found a place slightly out of the way in
neighborhood. But we were glad we did - we found a very reasonably priced,
pleasant pension called the Marble House. Lonely Planet calls it one of the
best budget hotels in athens and we don't doubt it. You can still walk to
all of the sights from Koukaki, or take cabs with all the money you save on
accomodations. The number is 923 4058. The address is Zini 35A, Koukaki.
