In an area where to go out at every time of the day and night without having to worry much about crimes and other terrible things and situations that can ruin our vacation.

Not all the central districts are safe in Athens but don't worry, I have listed some of the best on a budget accommodation situated in secure areas.

These accommodations are all in the city centre, far from the dangerous districts, to ensure that you will sleep wonderfully at night in a safe place.

These are the safest area in Athens where to look for accommodation and walk around exploring:

  • Pagrakti

  • Siggrou Fix

  • Monastiraki

  • Zografou

  • Neos Kosmos

These are the most dangerous Athens district to avoid, where daily drug uses and crime happen daily:

  • Omnia during the night. During the day Omnia is full of shops, bars and good restaurants

  • Kolokotroni Square

  • The lower side of Kolonos

  • Agio Panteleimomas

  • Vathi

Prices are between 35 to 80 euros for a double room per night during the springtime (summer prices are much higher but if you want to travel with a low budget, I highly recommend you to avoid the warmer months).

You can find even cheaper accommodations, but they are probably situated in not so safe areas.

In my opinion, I prefer to spend a little bit more, but be safe instead of risking something happening to me while going back to my accommodation at night only to save some money.
