Stayed here for a couple of nights before heading to the islands. We were not looking for luxury, just a decent hotel with a great location to explore the city. The rooms are basic, beds could be softer, but you have a small balcony and a mini fridge which are bonuses. We were only in our room to sleep so we didn't mind. The breakfast in the morning was great! Hot and Cold buffet with fresh fruit and pastries and lots of Greek yogurt options!

The location of the hotel you can't beat. There are tons of restaurants and shops steps from the hotel that are all great with very reasonable prices, much cheaper than we expected. Biggest tip, go to the Ice Grill, they have the best Gyros & they are only 2 Euros and huge Greek Beers (500ML) for 2.5 Euros. Dinners there was less than $20! You are also close (2-3 blocks) from the hop on hop off bus tour and the metro.

Best of all the roof top deck! There is a bar that is open from 5:30pm - midnight. We were up here every night and had a lot of fun with the other hotel guests, drinking a little too much. It's a large deck so if you are near a loud crowd you can easily move away.

Great hotel for exploring the city for the price!

Room Tip: Don't stay on the 6th floor, you can hear people moving chairs on the rooftop if you are trying to sleep

We have stayed in the Plaka Hotel several times both in the summer and the winter. It is in the Plaka which is the oldest (in recent terms) part of the city of Athens. We like it because it's clean, friendly, central and has a wonderful roof terrace with views of the Acropolis to die for!! The rooms are fairly recently refurbished, they are vere clean and some are spacious. If you don't mind walking in the Athens sun - all the famous museums are within walking distance of the hotel. Breakfast is included in the price - it is ok but not very varied. The staff are helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with Acropolis views!

The service was really good - the owner / manager was lovely and very helpful and took a real interest in her guests. Including allowing us to use her office to book flights on line. She also asked for views on the hotel in terms of what they could do differently - and this would be hard to improve on!
The bathroom needed upgrading but this is in hand.
The location was probably the best in Athens - everything was nearby. The rooftop terrace to sit of an evening should not be unterestimated in terms of peacefulness and views.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with upgraded bathroom.

The Plaka hotel was nice, nothing too flash but the location was PERFECT! located walking distance from Syntagma square and the plaka area. There is a bar on the rooftop which you can sit and just pass the time as you look out to the Acropolis & Parthenon. The only downfall to this was that there was only one person looking after the bar ans as there was many people on the rooftop it took a while to get drinks.
The room itself was quite small and when we arrived the room was not made up. The staff were very apologetic and the room was cleaned while we were out sight seeing. I would stay at this hotel again.
