Great location within walking distance to the Acropolis and all the other ruins. The room was clean and basic with shared bathroom. Service was good also there was always someone at the counter. They also provided a very useful basic information printout stating value for money local eateries. We followed all their recommendations and was never disappointed. There was an...

The only downsides are the wifi can be hit and miss in the bed rooms but great in the communal garden! Also the shared bathroom was not ideal however this...

Most of the things are ok, except for the rocking wooden double deck bed I was on, however I was able to transfer the next day to another bed so it was ok but they should repair or take it away the soonest as it may cause danger to guests. Another thing, there are no free lockers available for each...

The location of the hotel is hard to beat as well as the price and the staff is friendly but except the boss (fancy dressed woman) people don't seem to always know what they are doing. Air conditioner is broken and "there is nothing which we can do" except give you more blankets. Staff who cleans the place including restrooms,...

I've stayed here a few times and I probably will continue to do so with the cheap price and perfect location. The aircon was broken though so cut out and the remote didn't work which had us waking up from the heat. We had yummy as pancakes one morning. Good WiFi AND a laundry service right there. AMAZING. The front...

I stayed in this property a total of three nights, one in a private room and two in dorm-style accomodation. Each of these nights were excellent. The desk was manned 24h by friendly staff, and they were very welcoming when we checked in at 2am! The communal bathrooms could wear down a bit as the day went on, but they...

We visited the place recently, needing a place for two nights whilst transiting towards another location in Greece. The rooms are very clean, the prices are low and you are pretty much close to all the Athenian hotspots. The staff is friendly, and you've got a automatic food and drinks dispenser in the lobby in case you get thirsty at...

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.
