I have been staying in the media housing during my stay in Athens. Our facility is called Selete. It is a secure facility and brand new construction. The rooms are small and simple, but very functional. Every room has a desk, a single bed, and a small television. Most rooms, including mine, share a bathroom with a small shower.
The building has marble everywhere. The floors are all marble. The facade is marble. Pretty much everything except the furniture is marble. The front of the building is very sunny and pretty. You can walk to the media center, but you don’t generally want to. It takes a half-hour in brutal heat.
I am going to try to stay downtown for my last couple of nights in Athens; I think I will get a better opportunity to see all of the tourist attractions.
