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.

I agreed on 12 april by phone: 45€ for a double room per night, breakfast included. So 2 nights was in my opinion 90€ however, they charged me 180€. 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

We stayed in this hotel in May 2015 after looking online at a large number of hotels. We chose it based on price and location, and weren't disappointed. This hotel won't be for everyone, as it doesn't have fancy facilities or a luxury feel. What it does have is an absolutely fantastic location on Plaka square, a stone's throw from... More

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

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.
