Bottom Line

Located in Exarchia, a bohemian neighborhood famous for its history as a stronghold for Greek anarchists, the Best Western Museum Hotel is a mid-range chain property that offers a cozy lobby bar and a tasty breakfast buffet. The neighborhood might not be for everyone, but some may appreciate the location’s distance from the throngs of tourists.The 93 rooms have basic decor typical to chain hotels, but come with mini-fridges and free Wi-Fi. Young guests looking for an inexpensive option closer to the touristy areas may want to look into Athens Studios, a hotel with a youth-hostel vibe and apartment-style rooms with kitchens.

Museum Hotel


Classically decorated hotel on tree-lined block with cozy bar 

The Best Western Museum Hotel comprises two colorful adjacent buildings with gray balconies on a tree-lined street. Inside, the lobby is classically decorated with a wooden front desk and a Greek statue framed by white columns. A free breakfast buffet is served in a plain room with wooden tables decorated with yellow and white daisies in glass vases. A cozy bar area has round wooden tables with maroon and blue suede club chairs and a bookshelf with books for guests to read. On top of the bar is a large glass dispenser full of orange juice that's available to guests for free throughout the day.

Free breakfast buffet, cozy bar, and meeting rooms

Although the Best Western Museum Hotel doesn't offer a ton of amenities, the few it does offer get positive feedback. A free breakfast buffet is offered daily and receives good reviews for its tasty items, including continental dishes and local specialties such as Greek yogurt. Free orange juice is available all day in the cozy lobby bar. An unfurnished rooftop terrace offers great views of the city, although its lack of furniture may deter some guests from hanging out there for long.
