The location of the hotel can't be better - all in walking distance. We asked for a room not near the elevator or steps (because of what I've read in the reviews) and that' what we got. A big room, excellent shower, great bed. very welcoming crew. good breakfast. On the negative point - no parking place near the hotel,...

A very nice hotel located in the centre of Plaka so very easy to get around, find food and bars. The rooms are comfy with good showers. The roof top bar is lovely in the evening to look out on the Acropolis. Highly recommended.

Took a taxi from the airport to the Hotel Plaka. Flat rate of 38 euro. On approaching the hotel I began to wonder if I had booked a primitive office block but my fears were soon quashed. On arrival the staff greeted me with a welcoming smile and warmth that made me feel at home instantly. My room had a...

Staying in Plaka

Neighbourhood Profile
Plaka
Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay and play. Its attractive features include small squares, some notable museums and the beautiful Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.
