The location of this hotel is excellent. It is centrally located in Plaka a minutes to restaurants, shops and sites. I would rate this overall as a 3 star hotel. The rooms are tight and could use some upkeep. The rooms are adequately cleaned. There is no pool. The one elevator in the hotel is very tight and you will...

We stayed in an Acropolis view room for €175 for one night as it was the last night of our honeymoon. The hotel is in a great location, the breakfast is excellent, the staff are friendly, rooftop balcony great too. The thing that let this place down was the bathroom. There is bright orange mould in the grout, black mould...

My husband and I stayed here 3 nights and found this hotel (out of 4 total in our 2 week trip) to have the most comfortable bed and pillows! The room was also very spacious. We enjoyed the location which allowed us to easily walk everywhere we needed to go. The hotel also has a quiet relaxed roof top ball...

Wonderful hotel in the middle of "old" Athens. Great customer service from the minute I arrived. I was given a room with the bed facing a window with a view of the Acropolis. Made it hard to sleep at night just staring at the grandeur of the Parthenon awash in light!! Nice rooftop bar with a 360 degree view of...

We booked the Plaka Hotel for two nights, one before our cruise, and one after our cruise. We arrived much later than expected (2 a.m. rather than 5 p.m.) but our room was ready and desk personnel very helpful. We booked the most economical room, yet, we had a corner room with 2 windows. It was large, clean, quiet, even...

We stayed for 2 nights, before heading to Delphi and elsewhere. The hotel was perfect for anyone wanting a decent and excellent value place to stay, especially for sightseeing. Which can be hard to find in capital cities. The room was spacious, modern and clean with smart bathroom (again quite spacious, with great shower) and everything you want - including...

We tasted at Plaka Hotel for 2 days before we embarked on a cruise and absolutely LOVED it. The rooms are overly spacious, but we loved the cleanliness and the charm of the hotel and the staff was friendly, professional and attentive. Complimentary breakfast was exquisite, and the roof garden offered spectacular views of the Acropolis! The location is second...

I stayed in the Plaka Hotel for one night at the start of a solo trip I took to Greece a few weeks ago, and it was absolutely lovely in every way. When I checked in (somewhat the worse for wear after two long flights) the front desk staff greeted me so warmly and made me feel so welcome. They...

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.

“I had Room 310. Great view of the Acropolis, but I travelled solo. Probably not the best option for couples or families.”
