We stayed here one night in transit to the airport. It was very convenient to the Monastiraki subway station. 2 blocks and you have access to everything in the Athens area. Many restaurants and bars in the immediate area and the primary shopping area, Ermou street, was a block away. The hotel was well managed with very high quality materials... More

Perfect location for shopping and to all the sights. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Breakfast is quite variety and taste good. Beautiful view of Acropolis from the hotel roof top. The room is clean and with free wi-fi. The restaurant provides free coffee and biscuit til 5.30pm.

I stayed one night at Plaka Hotel. Overall, very nice staff that was knowledgeable on even the most mundane of questions. They even offered me an umbrella as it was raining. Breakfast ok, nothing special. Don't read too negative on that, as I'm used to American breakfast with lots of hot options. Unless youre at a major chain in Europe,... More

Hotel is centrally located and staff is very helpful and polite. Good choice for sightseeing Acropolis and Plaka area. Room is comfortable and warm and quite clean. We would make the same choice again if in Athens in the future.

The location is amazing. We arrived late at night from a rocky overdue ferry that was simply awful., We were hungry, irritable and needed to shower. The receptionist was very helpful and friendly and got us out of our funk immediately by giving us a great room, giving us time to clean up and pointing us to an awesome place... More
