The hotel is located in a charming neighborhood, with the Acropolis a short walk away. There is a Metro stop close by, and Syntagma Square is within walking distance. My room was utilitarian and clean and the bed was comfortable. The TV did not appear to work, but I did not care. The bathroom was tiny, but that is to... More

The location is right in the Plaka next to the Lysikrates monument at the end of Adrianou - a perfect walking location. There are NO FRILLS in this hotel and it is cheap. The rooms are small, the bed is firm, but everything is clean and you cannot beat the price for the location. In my opinion, if you are... More

The beds are comfortable but the rooms are pretty small as are the bathrooms. The location is just a few blocks from the Acropolis with beautfiul views of the rear of the Acropolis from some of the rooms, particulalry stunning when lit up for the night.. Other rooms lookout over a 500 year old Greek Orthodox church and a quiet... More

DO NOT GO to this hotel if you are a single women or have a daughter traveling with you. They only gave us one key. I came home early and went to bed our last night there. When my 25 year old daughter returned (her local friend had escorted her to the hotel entrance) she asked for the key to... More

Dear Madam, Thank you for giving me a very nice opportunity to introduce ourselves. We are a family hotel which my father and his brother founded back in 1963. We have accomodated hundreds of thousands of visitors since then and we have a really good reputation among our friends who keep on coming for years and years bringing their children... More

Comfortable beds, room and bathroom. Very close to all the Plaka restaurants and shops. The room was quite small but for two girls it was fine. The owner was very friendly and gave us a lot of advice on where to go and things to see. There was only one outlet in the room which was very inconvenient.

Near to the attractions and have a view of the acropolis on its rooftop. Room is ok but the shower is definitely not ok. The water temperature is extremely unstable despite the tap used to adjust water temperature in the shower. Water can switch from boiling to icy in seconds even though we didn't adjust the tap.

The men I had spoken to on the phone was not present, of course. Reception persons change twice a day. He said it was per person and somebody made a mistake??... More

The location and the price of the Hotel is it´s main characteristic. The location is perfect right in Placa and steps away from the acropolis. It is a very simple hotel, the bed is not the best and the bathroom is outside your room (private), but for the price, ya can´t argue so much. If you are looking for a... More

This hotel has few frills but everything works and the position is superb with views of the Acropolis and walking distance to the main attractions. The staff are friendly the breakfast basic but filling. I would recommend this to budget conscious travellers

I stayed here for three nights while in Athens. The location of the hotel is excellent - right by the acropolis and all the attractions of plaka. The hotel staff were very friendly and polite. The rooms are not huge but exactly as advertised. I had a private bathroom which was very nice and right next to the room. The... 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.
