The Plaka hotel was a great place to stay in Athens. We booked a room with an Acropolis view which made for fantastic viewing of the Acropolis, especially when beautifully lit up at night. The rooftop terrace also has great views all around Athens as well as the Acropolis.A lovely spot for an evening drink. The service was efficient and...

This hotel was just right for me. Not too low-scale and not too up-scale. It had everything I needed as a single traveler. Clean, neat, and serviced everyday. Even was surprised with Welcome wine and desserts! Breakfast was good too! Pretty good variety of foods. It was near everything I wanted to see and close to all forms of transportation...

This must be the best located hotel in Athens. It has a rooftop bar with views of the acropolis. Drinks a bit dearer than in the street but where can you get this view. Staff are friendly and very helpful. Breakfast is a combination of Greek and the standard European. A must visit in the heart of the Plaka district.

As others have stated the best attributes of this hotel is that it is within walking distances of the vast majority of the tourist sites in Athens. It has a huge amount of dining options of every price range within easy walking distance, and enough nearby shopping to keep even the most jaded shop-a-holic busy for weeks. There are tacky...

This is a great, affordable well-positioned option. Our room was spacious, quiet and comfortable, and it's only a few minutes' walk to Monastiraki. It's clean and light and the staff are keen to assist. Go up to the terrace at sunset for an ouzo and you'll have the most amazing view of the Acropolis. Drop in at Vintage Bar &...

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.
