I loved this hotel, the staff were so lovely. The elevator was tiny and needed to be hand opened by a door (not a major issue just inconvenient) and the breakfast buffet was vast and delicious. The infamous view from the rooftop is worth going up for several times (we did) it's honestly one of the most beautiful things I've... More

I didn't stay at this hotel ( I stayed at its twin hotel Hermes) but I visited the roof terrace. Elsa, the bar tender is very friendly and the vies is absolutely incredible. Drinking a glass of wine and just sitting there watching the Acropolis was truly magic

It's the second time visiting this hotel in one year time. It's location it's brilliant since you have everything around you - food, shops, taxi , cafe , Acropolis and much more. Rooms are clean , very nice breakfast and helpful staff. If you plan to go ask for Eva to help you for your visits and food choices around.

This hotel has great location which just in the main shopping area in plaka. Although the facilities are old but their roof top view is really nice for Acropolis in night. And the breakfast was not bad too =p.

At first I was going to stay at either the AVA or New Hotel. I'm glad I chose the Plaka hotel instead. It is right in the center of Plaka. There are more shopping opportunities especially for tourists right around the corner from this hotel. We also had a view of the Parthenon from our window and rooftop. So the... More
