Winter holiday was delightful. However finding parking was crazy. There was several food stalls and a variety of entertainment and recreational activities. It gets busy on the weekends so try to go during the weekdays if you are planning to go with your kids.

Where should I start: friendly front desk, central location, free cookies all day-long, modern deco, well-designed space, wonderful buffet breakfast… When you throw in the super low price, you will understand why I would recommend this great hotel to everyone visiting Athens.

I've been here 3 or 4 times and will always stay at Central when I go to Athens. Location is perfect, about 10 minutes away from the parliament and all around. The rooftop view of Acropolis is breathtaking. Rooms are clean and well looked after. Staff are super friendly and really helpful. They have a place to use the computer...

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.
