We made the mistake booking just on the fact it was close to the Acropolis and has a bar on the roof, BIG mistake. There are MUCH better places, cheaper just as close. Our room had barely 7 foot ceilings, the bed was made of lumber and swayed, creaked and shook just lying in it and the sheets had cigarette...

Beautiful view of Acropolis from the rooftop, very nice people! Small room, but clean. Good location in Plaka, close to all atractions. Metro station Acropolis in 50 metres, Syntagma square 1 station away.

We didn't stay at the hotel, but simply popped in on an April afternoon for a drink and appetizer. The restaurant was actually closed, but the waiter was kind and offered us drinks, and though the chef was not there yet, offered to make us bruschetta himself. It was delicious! The best meal we've had here so far. The bread...

Stayed here only for one night since we were coming from the islands and wanted to pick up a rental 5 blocks away. The room we were given smelled bad, a combination of old pharmacy and plainly old building and the bathroom had no curtains and water went literally everywhere and the pipes were making a weird noise the whole...

The hotel is very well located, but not worth a stay either. You can walk the whole plaka area by feet and won´t need to be that close to the acropolis. The rooms were dirty and loud, the bathroom was the worst: Shower with no curtain. Just a small shower place beside the toilet. Never had such a thing before...DO...

Clear view to acropolis above and rooftops below. Lovely lunch: Greek salads (superb!) followed by delicious with homemade Greek take on panna cotta. Simply delicious. So relaxing and delicious. Don't know how the hotel is, but this cafe is wonderful.

I had a small, simple room with a view of the Acropolis. My room was quiet and comfortable, roof terrace was great for breakfast, staff very helpful and helped out when I needed a few extra things. Such a great location too.

The Byron is perfectly situated for eating, drinking and sightseeing. The hotel is a little tired and would benefit from an upgrade and a good clean but the staff are friendly and the beds comfy. The roof terrace looks out on the Acropolis.

We stayed in this hotel after a beautiful vaccation on the islands and where not exspecting much since we knew that this is where you pay for the location but it was really terrible. The lady at the reception was very nice but this guy, who we think was the boss seemed strange. The room was horrible, dirty and noisy,...

The hotel is simple but is located in a good location for a walk around for sightseeing and city tours. You can also find many restaurants around. The room was small and sometimes wifi connection is not so good but overall with very helpful attitude of staff and friendly manner I would recommend this hotel. The lady in the rooftop...

Staying in Plaka

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
