Before delving into this list of Athens’ hotels for families, keep in mind that the Plaka, Monastiraki, and Syntagma neighborhoods are the best areas for families to stay in Athens. The farther you go north (away from the Plaka and closer to Omonia), the uglier and sketchier the city gets.

1Grecotel Pallas Athena

Family-friendly, 5-star hotel with a play area and connecting rooms. Rooms, suites, and lofts all can have minimalist style or funny graffiti murals including superheroes, smurfs and looney tunes. Located near Kotzia Square, it’s minutes away from the flea markets, Monastiraki Sq, and the Ancient Agora. Indeed, its six well-sized interconnecting rooms, rich menus & buffet and the cartoon wall murals painted by local street artists makes it one of the best hotels in Athens for families.

2Astor Hotel

Great, central location close to Syntagma Square. A very good breakfast is included and served on the rooftop restaurant with amazing views of the Acropolis. Large triples and quads are available for families. Furnishings are a bit dated but the hotel makes a good, mid-range choice for families.

3New Hotel

This quirky, modern and comfortable hotel is just a 2-minutes walk from Syntagma Square. Contemporary design and decor with useful furnitures like electronic blackout shades would do for a family. The hotel offers a casual restaurant inside, and an excellent rooftop bar & lounge as well. Up to 4 people sleep flexibly in interconnecting rooms.

4Ava Hotel and Suites

The service and amenities of a 5-star hotel can be found in this friendly, family-run B&B. A perfect location on a quiet street in the Plaka also helps to make Ava Suites considerable for your Athens’ Hotels for families list. Great breakfast and close to the Akropoli metro station. Some rooms have kitchenettes.

5Palmyra Beach Hotel

This budget friendly hotel consists of 2-bedroom family rooms that can accomodate up to 5 people. A nice pool embellishes its close location to shopping malls, restaurants, and the beach in Glyfada. The tram to central Athens takes 30 minutes, and its stop is just outside the hotel.

6Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel

Stunning setting on a private peninsula on the southern coastal stretch of Athens bring Greek islands home. A great beach, pool, restaurants, kids club, and a varied range of outdoor activities & sports you may be interested in are present. Although it’s a bit far, it takes 10 minutes to Glyfada, 20 minutes to the airport, and 40 minutes into central Athens from there. A free shuttle bus takes you into Glyfada, and if it’s full, the hotel pays the taxi fare.

7City Circus Athens Hostel

A nice budget hostel with a large quadruple room perfect for families is situated just in the walking distance to the Plaka neighbourhood. Indeed, the location keeps you vibrant. Consider this if you prefer to spare much money to spend in outdoors or operare with a tight purse.
