Service and Staff: As mentioned in other reviews, the staff at the hotel is lovely and courteous. Everyone in the staff spoke good English, able to provide suggestions about where and what...

We stayed in Hotel Plaka for 5 nights in April. I have to say, the hotel was one of the reasons our stay in Athens was so memorable. The staff, from the receptionists, cleaners, to the lady in the bar were all very friendly, competent and helpful. Nothing was any trouble and they were always happy to help with smile....

The welcome is warm. The location is in the center of Plaka, the tourist area of Athens. Our Acropolis-view (at extra cost) room was dumbfoundingly beautiful -- day and night! Easy walking to the new Acropolis Museum, etc. At (included!) breakfast buffet, they have a staff person to help with planning the day's sightseeing. Around the corner is a wonderful...

Lucky pick for us. Walking distance to museums and Acropolis, very quiet, superb service. Unbelievable free breakfast. Rooftop really does have a view of the Parthenon. Desk staffed 24/7. Easy walking to wide variety of eating/ drinking choices. Close to Metro station - could have avoided taxi from airport. We recommend this without reservation. Possibly can find a better bargain...

Absolutely in the central location to everything. The buffet breakfast and the rooftop view of the Acropolis were the def highlights. The only slight downer was getting an iron for use, but we got one on our last day. I guess they only keep a few spare ones to be shared amongst guests. But that isnt a big deal as...

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.
