We stayed in this location 10/10-10/12. The hotel has a great central location and amazing views. You are a 10-15 min walk from just about every attraction in the city. The hotel staff was top notch, extremely helpful. The rooms are comfortable and very clean - although do show some wear. The roof garden has amazing views of the Acropolis... More

The hotel had comfortable rooms and a roof terrace bar from which you could watch sunset and the Acropolis. We walked to the archaeological sites and enjoyed the Plaka area for shopping and cafes.. The staff were very helpful and breakfast was good. We felt safe and very pleased to have found this nice hotel.

The Plaka Hotel is terrific. For tourists like ourselves we found it's location to be perfect--just blocks from the side of the Acropolis close to numerous restaurants and shopping plus ruins to not miss. Also they have a roof top bar to see a beautiful sunset and the Acropolis lit up. We would definitely stay there again. The staff is... More

Right from our arrival to our departure 3 days later, this was a great experience. We were celebrating our 30th anniversary and lo and behold, the Plaka Hotel had drinks and chocolates in our room, with a a little gift for my wife too. A lovely thought. The room was lovely and the breakfast excellent, with a great choice of... More

We were in Athens at the end of our holiday and what a wonderful choice the Plaka Hotel was. The best hotel we had stayed at on our travels through Turkey and Greece. The location superb for sightseeing and exploring Athens. Small, tasteful and comfortable. Genuinely friendly and helpful staff, from cleaners, restaurant staff and the front desk. We were... More

We flew into Athens airport for a 2 night stay before embarking on a 3 week cruise. Easy trip from the airport to the hotel. This is not a large and imposing chain hotel. It is quite compact and right in the middle of the Plaka district. Check in was very good and the staff there were ALL super nice.... More

The absolute perfect location for site seeing!!! A surprisingly good breakfast that was included with our room rate. 4 out of our 5 mornings Ava was there at breakfast to help us plan our day and answer any questions we had. On the 5th morning a different woman was there and she was not nearly as helpful. The rooms were... More

The Plaka would be an excellent hotel choice for Athens even without the view of the Acropolis from your window and an even better view from the rooftop viewing area. The hotel is in the heart of the Monasteraki district, close to great restaurants, shops, markets, the Agora, and the Acropolis itself. Excellent rooms and wonderful service. Complimentary wine and... More
