This hotel has a great location. You can walk everywhere. We had hot water the first morning, but not the second. If you would prefer to take a taxi to the hotel, you should get one yourself. You will save 15 euros. If the hotel calls the taxi for you, it is 40 euros to the airport. If it is... More

Without repeating what was said below: clean room, clean renovated bathroom. Friendly staff. Great location, a few minutes walk to Syntagma Square and bus X95 to the airport. Right on the edge of Plaka on a quiet street. Great value for the money. I will return and send my friends there. On the down side: no elevator, but make the... More

I have been in this hotel only one night at the end of May for holiday while I was coming back from an island to Athens. From Piraeus port isn't far (11 km, 20€ by taxi) and it's in a very good location in Plaka. You can visit the city by walking, you will never need subway or taxi to... More

It was our first in time Greece and our first stop was in Athens. We stayed at the Kimon Athens Hotel for literally a day and half. We took the metro from the airport and rode it straight to Syntagma Sqaure. That took us about 30-40 mins, and from there we walked about 5-7 mins to our hotel. It was... More

I am giving this hotel a mark of five, not because its the best place we have stayed in, but because it filled all all our requirements. We were given a rooftop suite, which had a great view of the Acropolis, and at night it was floodlit and was spectacular indeed. The room itself was very comfortable, if a bit... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights last month and we were very pleasantly surprised. The hotel is 5 minutes walk from Syntagma Square from where you can get the bus or metro straight to airport. Despite other reviews stating that the area looks a bit rough and run down, there is no reason to feel unsafe simply... More

We stayed in this hotel for one night at the end of our trip. We had used a different one in Athens at the start, and wished we had stayed here instead.... We had a family room on the top floor with views of the parthenon. The room was spotless, the guys on reception friendly and helpful, and the room... More

We spent 5 nights here nearly 2 weeks ago. The location is very central and close to public transport. The staff were really helpful and friendly. The hotel was in a quiet area away from the hustle and bustle of the noisy roads, which made for a peaceful nights sleep. Everything was clean and we had a nice breakfast on... More

We spent 3 nights here in late February. The hotel is approximately a 10 minute walk from Syntagma Metro station. We had room 303 which has a view of the Acropolis. In order to get to the room you must clime 67 stairs, exit onto the rooftop terrace/garden then enter the room...we didn't mind this but if you have mobility... More

Amazing value for money, very clean, boasting a secret view of the acropolis form the roof garden, Kimon, is the best place to stay in the centre of Athens. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. Wifi could be improved otherwise excellent!

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.
