The hotel is in a central location close to great shopping, restaurants, sightseeing and Syntagma Square. The hotel is clean and recently renovated. The lobby is very small, the elevators barely fit a medium size suitcase and the bathrooms in the rooms seem to follow the same theme. Overall, the rooms are clean and offer what you need for a...

Getting to this hotel wasn't too bad, but if you are looking for the quick option definitely take a taxi. It took over an hour by bus and then about a 3 block walk to get to the hotel--you can also take the train system which was supposedly quicker, but once we figured that out we were going back to...

Hardware: very tiny lobby. I will be worried if I have to leave my luggage with them since it will be left right beside the stairs and everyone can access it. Not too safe. Room: furnitures are in reasonable condition. Air condition is indeed very strong, thus room can be very cold and the temp is very hard to control.... More

Recently returned from athens after a 4 day stay here. Rooms are clean, modern and a reasonable size. The only thing lacking was a view - but you cant have everything! Staff are friendly enough - but not overly! Breakfast is a continental affair and good. Its perfectly located between syntagma sq and the plaka - ideal for sightseeing. We... More

Place was great and guess its a 3 if its labelled as a 3 but I was happy with location. My room (upgraded) was much nicer than my neighbors (went with 2 friends) tan/brown room. Beds are the slightly stiff "cheap" matresses but good enough. Breakfast? good enough for your daily treks.. stay away from the sour cheese. 3 ways... More

This hotel suited us fine for our one night stay. We arrived early & our room was available which was really good. It is within walking distance of many famous tourist attractions. It is also close to shops & restaurants. The room was clean & spacious enough for three of us. It was not exactly luxurious but had everything required... More

millc54, you were very lucky to get tea making facilities. Although it says in the folder in the room that coffee and tea making facilities are provided in all rooms and at all times on request, this was not my experience.

Our stay in Athens was perfunctory and only needed as a stay for the next part of our trip. This hotel is in the Best Western chain and even though the room is of a reasonable size it does not match up to the rooms in the States. The beds were hard and the shower stall was minute, no room... More

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.
