Although the rooms are nothing special and a bit small, they are clean and comfortable, and location is worth it! We walked out our door and were right in the heart of the plaka, and just steps away from the temple of Zeus and Acropolis. The hotel had a great view of the Acropolis as well as plaka streets.

JUST THE BEST PLACE TO STAY IN ATHENS!!! A lovely corner at the start of Plaka, a cozy little place with a gorgeous terrace and view, and above it all friendly, mostly efficient and always willing to help personnel... A wonderful experience. Should I return next year, this is going to be my stopping place =)

As a dedicated budgeteer, on my first several Athens visits, I walked by Phaedra thinking, I probably can’t afford this, the location is too good! Luckily, one day I asked, and have stayed there ever since,,, probably 6 times so far. Only a few yards away from the lovely promenade on the south side of the acropolis, and between 2... More

I choose hotels by starting with the exact location I want, then move outward as needed to find a place with the right price and very few 1- and 2-star reviews. I didn't need to search beyond the first one I saw on the map -- Phaedra. I was very pleased with my visit. Phaedra doesn't have much charm, and... More

Really nice hotel. Everythig is in the area, Akropol,Temple of Zeus, Plaka etc. Nice view from the terrace on the roof. Rooms are small but I think this is not important if you visit the sity for views. The breakfast is like typical in Hotel in Greece, not to good so we have used Restaurant close to Hotel. By the...

We chose a hotel that's close to Acropolis and this is exactly that - more of a lodge. But, practical in all ways. Close to Acropolis and most attractions are walking distance. You may find this better suited for solo or budget travellers

The location is phenomenal! From my balcony, I was at the base of the Acropolis; what a view!! The neighborhood was superb, right on the corner of the best shopping and overall very safe. The hotel was clean..... The Cons: No breakfast or coffee. The staff was very unfriendly and ridiculously unhelpful. No hair dryer or basic amenities. The room... More

We were looking for a great little budget hotel to crash for one night, and this place really exceeded our expectations. It’s literally right below the Acropolis in the heart of the Plaka and an easy walk (even dragging big suitcases) from either Monastiraki square metro or Syntagma Square metro. The hotel is clean and well looked after. The rooms... 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.
