I spent several months planning a family trip to Greece. In January 2014 I finalized our itinerary and paid in full for all our overnight accommodations. We were confirmed at The Plaka for 3 nights. 24 hours before we left on our trip The Plaka informed me that they overbooked and they took it upon themselves to relocate us. I'm... More

We finished of every night sitting on the terrace admiring the view with a freshly prepared drink in hand. Rooms were very clean. Location is awesome. Staff were all helpful. Happy to arrange a large taxi booking for our group. Would stay here again.

The location is excellent for walking to attractions, shopping, and eating out with many choices. The staff is helpful and knowledgable. The room very clean and well set up though the... More

This hotel met our expectations. The room was smallish but impeccably clean. The bathroom was also small but the shower was good-sized and modern, with good water pressure. Breakfasts are included and the offerings range from breads to hard boiled eggs to meats and cheeses, olives, etc. There were always hot offerings too - eggs and bacon or, surprisingly, beans...

This was our first stay at the Plaka Hotel, as we usually stay at their sister hotel, the Hermes, just up the road. We had a two day business trip in April, but the Hermes was fully booked for the dates that we required, so they found us a room at the Plaka instead. We love the Hermes, having stayed... More

My partner and I stayed at the Plaka hotel for three nights around Christmas time (2013). It is located very centrally - walking distance from some key metro stations, close to a lot of places of historical interest, in the centre of the shopping district - both high street shopping as well as more traditional goods and very close to...

We stayed at the Plaka Hotel for five nights, in a room with a view of the Acropolis. It was a fine choice. Room was clean and comfortable. There was a good choice at breakfast and a friendly lady who came around asking if you needed anything - although she was offering trips, this never felt forced and it came... More

This hotel is in a beautiful location at the foot of the Acropolis. The view from the rooftop patio is great. That said, the single room I had was tiny. But it was clean and comfortable and the staff, especially Elsa in the bar, were very friendly and helpful. They made suggestions of things to do and places to go,... More

Staff were very helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The view from the upstairs terrace was the highlight of the stay at Plaka and is its best selling point. We went up at night and relaxed with a glass of wine on the cosy sofa and looked at the Acropolis lit up, amazing. The room was ok,... More
