We received a cordial welcome at the hotel despite arriving at 11:00a.m., let us store our bags while we had complimentary coffee and tea. The rooms were clean and the bed linens were crisp and comfortable. The buffet breakfast is extensive, plus a continental offering...More

Plaka hotel could not be in better location.

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.

There are plenty of cafes, markets and restaurants within walking distance around the Plaka. If you’re feeling adventurous, step out of the Plaka Hotel entrance, turn right, cross the street and follow the winding streets and alleyways. This is safe to do at night.
Syntagma Square is within walking distance and the Hop On/Off bus (access to all the main sites around Athens) has a stop just before you reach the Square.
The Plaka area is very nice to just wander around, if that’s you’re thing.
