The hotel is right in the middle of beautiful Athens with spectacular view of the acropolis from the hotel restaurant. Short walk to many sites, restaurants, markets and shops. Clean, lovely breakfasts and friendly staff. Would love to visit again.

My son and I stayed here for just one night, before returning to the UK, but would definitely have liked to have stayed here longer. The staff at the front desk were extremely helpful and charming and have a palpable love for the hotel and their city. Our room had an extraordinary view of the Acropolis as does the beautiful...

It's the little things that make this a great place to stay. Staff member Eva greeted you every morning at breakfast and made sure your plans were on track for the day. A bag full of laundry for €9. Spectacular rooftop view of Acropolis with evening drinks to watch the sunset, complete with rugs if the weather is chilly. On... More

Just a quick one night stay. Hotel was perfectly located. Friendly staff, good breakfast, clean room (loved the wood floors). We had a room on the 5th floor with a stunning view of the Acropolis. Rooftop terrace nice, serves only 5:30-11:30pm. Breakfast room was on 2nd floor so no views from there, full standard Greek breakfast on par with the... More

We stayed three nights and had a great time, breakfast was good room was good, roof top had spectacular views. Eva had good ideas e.g catch the no. 5 tram around the coast line for 2.40 euro return. Stop at a beach side stop for coffee or lunch and look over the sea. Great laundry service.

It couldn't have been better! The staff was amazing, the amenities everything I could ask for and the rooftop bar facing the acropolis? A dream! My room was in the top floor and from my bed I had a perfect view of the acropolis and the parthenon! There is no doubt you can't beat the location and I will most... More

We only stayed one night, but would of happily stayed longer. The hotel as the name suggests is right in heart of the Plaka and is only a short walk from the metro which in turn is only an 8 euro ride on the metro from the airport. Staff are really friendly and helpful especially Maria on the front desk... More

Very nice, kind people, clean, comfortable and close to everywhere. Breakfast from very early to 11 and no one will tell you, "late". WiFi very robust at any point. The roof it's delicious to enjoy the Parthenon view

The Plaka Hotel is in a great location and close to lots of shops and restaurants. It's also walking distance to the Acropolis and Monsteriki metro station. The breakfast was excellent and there's a lady who comes around and speaks to all the guests to make sure they are happy with everything and to offer help with transfers or trips... More

Staying in Plaka

Neighborhood Profile
Plaka
Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay and play. Its attractive features include small squares, some notable museums and the beautiful Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.
