The Sweet Home Hotel is located in the Plaka area filled with streets of shopping and restaurants. It is also close to the Acropolis. The hotel room was nice, clean and compact. And the bed was comfortable. They provide a breakfast with the room rate. It was very good and offered many food options to choose from. The staff was...

The cutest room with a view of the Acropolis. Clean room, abundant breakfast, wonderful and helpful staff and all in the heart of Plaka where everything happens. Pricey, yes.... but everything seems that way in Greece. I certainly recommend this hotel. We took the metro blue line from the airport to Syntagma Square stop. From there its a 3 block...

The hotel is very nice and a great location-very close to plaka/monastiraki area as well as syntagma metro(direct link with the airport) is 10mins walk away. . The bedrooms are spacious and clean. The service is very good. The only minus was the price, for what they offer it is pricey

Sweet Home Hotel was a charming historic building near the Plaka area. Many of Athens' best sites were within a 10-20 minute walk and the hotel had great rooms and a kind staff. We were really impressed by the breakfast spread which was included in our room rate and felt it was great quality for the money.

Yes the hotel has many steps (perhaps a dozen) up to the check in desk, but if you are able to deal with that fact this is a wonderful hotel. The location is perfect--in the heart of Athens, minutes from the Plaka--and the staff bends over backwards in order to help you out with whatever you need--taxis, restaurant reservations, directions,...

The hotel it's ok for a short stay. Is very well located, walking distance to the Acropolis and with reasonable prices. The bed was comfortable but the room was very small, with no place to put the luggage and difficulty to open doors. The staff was very kind.

My boyfriend and I had to spend a night in Athens and after looking at various hotels, and based on the high ranking and positive review decided to spend our 12 hours (including sleep) at Sweet Home Hotel. Although our stay was pleasant, I have to say that it's nothing like what people are saying, or what the pictures show....

We stayed in this hotel for two nights with a group of seven. Hotel was very clean, quite and the breakfast was delicious. Also the front desk was very kind. It is in the heart of Athens. You can go everywhere by walk.

The first week in June we arrived in Athens, took the metro in from the airport to Syntagma Square (great if there are no strikes) and pulled some of our luggage an easy three blocks or so toward Sweet Home. As we turned down what appeared to be an alley with tagging and construction, I was beginning to question our...

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.
