We loved everything about this hotel. Friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms, wonderful breakfast, location was perfect. They have partnered with another hotel that has a gym, spa, pool, massage, but we were there for Christmas and the only day we could have gone they were closed for the holiday. Just a 5 minute walk to Monastraki train station, and...

I stayed for 1 night at this hotel in a single room. The receptionists were very welcoming, knowledge and professional. Check in and check out were a breeze. The room had a good size bed for a single room and was larger than a single bed. The hotel seems to have made the best of the space that is in...

We stayed in Hotel Plaka for two nights and really loved our stay. The staff was amazing and helped where ever they could. Especially in giving directions and opinions.

We chose this place because it is at the heart of Plaka and near all the tourist sites. We got out of Monastiraki station and just walk up passed all the restaurants and there it is. The staff was very nice. We had a room that faced the streets and it was very noisy. So the next day and asked...

As first timers in Athens, we could have not ask for a good hotel in a very central location than Plaka Hotel. First and foremost, it was very easy to get to from the Airport; we took the Metro and after around 40 mins, we reached Monsatitaki Station. After a few more minutes of walking towards Metropoleos St. and we...

We booked an Acropolis View room which was much cheaper here than other places. We had a KILLER view from the room, a mini bottle of welcome wine and dessert. The bones of the place are budget, but it is well-kept and we took most food to go and ate on the rooftop.

Stayed just one night, but will certainly return. Set in the heart of Athens this hotel is small but perfectly formed! The room was smallish but very clean. The rooftop bar/terrace has amazing views of the Acropolis and they even supply wraps for when the weather is cooler. The breakfast was self service but excellent. Staff were friendly and efficient....

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.
