Centrally located beside Omonia Square, the Alassia hotel provides affordable accommodations within walking distance of Plaka (old town) and tourist attractions like the National Archaeological Museum of Athens. Renovated in 2002, the hotel lobby is furnished with oversize silver vases, Italian sofas upholstered with vintage velvet, and pillars of rare marble from the town of Famagusta. The 82 guest rooms are more basic, with dark wood furniture and off-white linens. The lobby bar serves coffee and cocktails, and a continental breakfast buffet is available each morning in the dining room.
