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...

Right by Plaka square...tons of restaurants...and not far from the Acropolis.

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

Recommend the Plaka Hotel as great place to stay in terms of location. We stayed here for three nights before heading off to the islands. The rooms are clean and basic and whilst we weren't lucky enough to have a room with a view it certainly met our needs. Staff nice and helpful. Breakfast included and a good way to... More

We stayed 3 nights and we were welcome with baklava, wine and ice water - that was very appreciated. The breakfast here is excellent, staff is wonderful, we had a shower issue and they fixed it right away. Location is perfect - walking distance to every where

Stayed two nights while we explored historic Athens. Took the Metro from the airport to Monastiraki Square and promptly got lost even though we were only 250m from the hotel. We had directions but they weren't very helpful and we just kept going around in circles. Finally found the hotel after 1.5 hrs and checked-in very hot, very thirsty and... More

The Plaka hotel is a great place to stay to see the sites of Athens. It is very close to the Acropolis, Temple of Zeus and museum etc. Fabulous Greek restaurants and food nearby. Staff very friendly and helpful. The rooftop view of the Acropolis is spectacular, especially at night! Lovely fruit basket and Greek pastries on arrival! Would definately... More

Ask for a room with a view of the Acropolis, or if one is not available have a seat at their rooftop garden and sip a glass of wine and "drink in" the view. This little hotel is perfectly located by all the main attractions. I walked to the Acropolis, the main shopping walkways and great restaurants. Rooms are average,... More

Dear ESTTokyo, Our "smile " and "hospitality" is what sets us apart . The fact that Plaka hotel is, in addition to its location and quality, a family run hotel thus giving the staff the opportunity to be trained in hospitality directly by the owners!

Plaka Hotel is one of the best hotels in Athens. Conveniently located to great restaurants, public transport and a beautiful shopping strip, it's central to everything. The service is impeccable and the view of the Acropolis from the clean and modern room is amazing. A beautiful experience.
