We chose this hotel based on the great reviews and the good rate and were not disappointed! Friendly and helpful staff, always willing to give some advice. Perfect location: in the middle of it all, but very quiet- at least at our side of the hotel which was not facing the street, not sure what it's like at the other...

Went with my wife for one night before taking a cruise at pireos. As we arrived a girl receptionist welcomed us talking in perfect spanish (our native language). She told us to go to our room and come back to see her so she could help us with our itinerary and sightseeing that day. As a matter of fact we...

The Plaka Hotel was like a home away from home. We were at the end of a two week tour/ cruise: tired and ready to get back to the states. However we still had a multiple day stay in Athens. The Plaka Hotel was rejuvenating: the hotel staff was wonderful, the breakfast was super, the rooms were nice, and the...

My wife and I stayed here for 1 night in July. The location is excellent in the heart of the Plaka district. The rooms were comfortable, although a touch on the small side. We had asked for a view of the Acropolis but instead got a close up view of the building next door which was under construction. This wasn't...

We stayed here twice, both times on the top floor. The location is excellent, an easy walk from Monastiraki Metro Station and to many of Athens most popular ancient sites. Reception is very welcoming and the pastries and wine in our room on arrival were a nice touch. The other big selling point here is the rooftop bar, with absolutely...

This hotel was recommended to us and we're so pleased we heeded the advice, probably the best value for money of our six weeks travelling in Europe. We spent 4 nights here in a great room with a view of the Acropolis - loved watching the flag being raised and lowered - memorable. The staff were all cheerful and helpful....

Very nice hotel close to everything. 200 m from the metro to the airport (Monastiraki), 50 m from the main shopping street (Ermou), 500 m from Syntagma square, and right on the edge of the Plaka area. This means the hotel is in the middle of a very lively (and tourist filled) area, and you dont have to walk far...

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.
