THE WORST SERVICE I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED IN MANY YEARS OF TRAVEL. The older woman there who i am guessing is the co-owner with her husband was maybe bordering on being mad- she was TERRIBLY mean from the start and appeared to enjoy saying NO, including to me borrowing a chair form the breakfast room to use at the desk...

The rooms are small and in need of updates but we didn't spend much time in the room so that was not an issue. The common area on the roof has a fantastic view of the Acropolis at night which was worth the stay in my opinion. Breakfast was included and was fine. I'd stay here again if we went... More

Before booking, we read good reviews on the location and rooms. After looking thru the pictures we were convinced that this was the place for us. Upon arrival, the elderly gentleman at the reception counter was obnoxiously rude and short of hearing, NOT friendly nor helpful, and speaks to you in a condescending tone. The lift in the hotel was... More

My family arrived after calling the hotel ahead of time and asking for their rate for 3 people. We arrive, check in, and go to our room. Later in the night, we leave for dinner, and when we return at around midnight, the front desk person followed us to our room and demanded an extra $30 for the third person,... More

First, let me state I feel that the proprietors of this hotel take their jobs as positive representatives of the Athens tourism community seriously and to heart....HOWEVER, there are many areas where the quality of the place could use upgrades. First and foremost, the very simple upgrade of mattresses that arrived in Athens before the Parthenon would be greatly appreciated.....my... More

When I arrived, I had been upgraded from a single room to a doubloon the rooftop terrace. Thank goodness! That room was so small, I have bruises on my legs from trying to walk around the room (and I'm very used to European small rooms). It was clean - it was safe - and the staff was helpful. After all...

This was my first time in Athens and I was told this hotel is perfect for its location and a great value for the price. We arrived early and were told we couldn't check in. Understandable. What was not so easy to swallow was the demeanor of the owner(?) an arrogant, elderly Greek male who acted like he was doing... More

I told the manager I cannot stay in this room. hE DID OFFER TO SPRAY THE ROOM but as all non smokers know the smell is in the curtains, bed sheets, carpets etc.... More

It is central and well connected. It is very basic, but clean. However, I will never go back to this hotel because I never managed to sleep in two nights there. We got a room on the first floor and I would recommend anyone to try and get one on a higher floor. Being where we were meant that we... More

The hotel is in a fantastic location with all of the key places to visit within walking distance. Also good for the nightlife around Monastiraki, Psiri, Plaka & Syntagma. It is also next door to the excellent Booze Cooperativa bar. Our room was small, impeccably clean and with a street view balcony. Free wifi in the rooms and excellent and... More

Staying in Plaka

Neighborhood Profile
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.
