The Plaka was perfect for a couple of days in Athens. Within walking distance of most of the sites and a Metro station 2 blocks away at Monastraki. Good neighborhood, lots of restaurants nearby. Nice rooftop bar with sofas for viewing the Acropolis at night. Superior room with balcony was not what I would have expected.

It is really a great location as you can walk out of the front door and have the whole of central Athens at your disposal.

As everyone has raved about, location is terrific - close to transpo, flea market, shops, cafes, churches and historic sites - plus staff are gracious and helpful. I talked to the receptionist about booking a taxi as my husband and I had an early flight and the metro service to the airport starts only at 6 a.m. She suggested the...

Hotel is located a few minutes walk from both Syntagma and Monastraki metro stations. 45 minute trip from Airport on metro costs €10. On arrival at Hotel Plaka I was warmly welcomed and offered 2 room options, of course I accepted the Acropolis view room (410) instead of a larger double room with just street view. To wake up each...

We chose the Plaka Hotel for its location and it was perfect, with a supermarket almost next door, shops on the doorstep, and walking distance to Monasteraki station. The rooftop bar was great for a late afternoon drink, enjoying the view as night fell and the Acropolis was lit up. Breakfast was extensive, and the lounge was an unexpected surprise...

If you want to stay in the Plaka area, it would be hard to beat this hotel for price and convenience. Our room was spacious by European standards, the staff was incredible and the breakfast presented very well, with plenty of choices. The bed was comfortable, nice pillows and a great breeze from the window. A better view would have...

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.
