4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

It was a comfortable stay in Plaka hotel. It's not a fancy one and even a little bit old. But the staff there is friendly and room is clean and nice. What's more surprised is there fantastic view in roof garden!! Do visit their roof garden during your stay!

Right in the middle of the Plaka! A five minute walk to the subway that takes you to the airport (40 minutes) or port (20 minutes) Room was large with a wonderful bathroom. Rooftop bar has wonderful view of Acropolis and Plaka district. Staff went out of their way to help and make you feel at home. Would definitely stay... More

My husband and I stayed here one night before traveling back to the USA. Conveniently located in the heart of Athens and a staff that was welcoming, helpful and gracious throughout our stay. While making my way through security, I realized I had left our camera in our room safe. I contacted the hotel and they secured my camera and... More

This hotel is a little gem, so central. 10 mins brings you to the foot of the Acropolis, Hadrians library is less than 5min away. The rooms are lovely, fluffy towels, excellent shower and bath, the breakfast caters for everyone, just great.

This hotel is in the Plaka area (old quarter), across the road you will find Ermou Street which is a shopping street, around the corner lots of bars, restaurants, touristy shops. We stayed here for 2 nights before heading to the islands and our room was on the 2nd floor, very comfortable bed and room clean. The second time we... More

Just 2 nights in Athens on way to the islands so wanted somewhere central.

You don't need to be a guest of the hotel to make use of its rooftop deck and bar with the BEST view of the Acropolis and Parthenon. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Nothing fancy but extremely well placed in the middle of the Plaka area and walking distance to just about all of the major attractions. The staff... More

Although somewhat hard to find if travelling on foot, the Plaka hotel was a discovery well worth the effort. In the heart of the Plaka District, the Plaka hotel is central to all the hustle and bustle that comes from being surrounded by ancient ruins, good restaurants, many sidewalk cafes, high-end jewelry and fur stores as well as more tourist/souvenir...

Dear Maxipint, Thank you for staying with us and for your tips for other travellers. There no reason for someone who does not have a lot of luggage, not to use the metro, as long as he takes real care of his personal belongings. The line to the airport and the port is direct and very efficient... but as said... More
