If you are walking down Athinas from Omonia it will be on your right before you get to Ermou and the square at Monastiraki. If you are staying at the Hotel Attalos or Cecil Hotels you are right on the edge of Psiri. When you first enter the area you will wonder if you are in the right place and whether you will come out alive.
