This is a delightful hotel in the center of Athens with amazing views of the Acropolis from many of its rooms. The staff is courteous and extremely welcoming and the check in process could not be easier. While we had a superior room, it was clean, roomy and quiet as it faced the Acropolis side of the Plaka itself. The... More

This is a plain and simple hotel. It is everything that it says it is. It is well located for sightseeing. It is clean and well run with very attentive staff. The roof top bar is disappointing, though this might be the time of year. The hotel is far too hot and they need to be able to control the... More

We did a lot of research before choosing the Plaka Hotel, and the research paid off. Plaka is located at the edge of Monastraki Square, very close to the metro, and within walking distance of all of the major sites in Athens. It was terrific to be able to get up, have a superb breakfast, and walk to our chosen... More

The hotel is absolutely perfectly located, with all major attractions within easy walking distance. The roof terrace is fantastic, with an amazing view of the Acropolis. Very good breakfast buffet, good beds, good shower. This morning the friendly receptionist Eva came to ask if we had any wishes and explained about the upcoming strike. Great service, thanks!

The hotel is in the middle of the Plaka. The location is very very good if you want to visit the Acropolis or just walk in the streets. The metro station Monastiraki is only in 3 minutes. The streets are a bit noisy even in January, since there are a lot of bars and restaurants. The lock on the door... 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.
