Have just returned from a 5 week holiday ending at The Plaka Hotel in Athens. What a great place to finish. We opted for a deluxe room with a balcony, great to watch the local activities. The room was spotlessly clean and had all necessary amenities ie very comfortable bed, cold bar fridge, hairdryer,TV, free wi-fi for Ist hour then 2euros/hr but no tissues in room or coffee/tea making facilities but there is complimentary coffee and biscuits available all day in the breakfast room. Ist floor has book exchange near computer. Breakfast was more than OK with REAL homecooked scrambled eggs,bacon fruit, cold cuts and the best yoghurt ever etc. The location was exceptional, close to all tourist attractions. 10mins easy walk to Syntagma Square, 3 mins to Monastariki station and the Agora and other interesting ruins are within easy walking distance.Heaps of reasonably priced restaurants/cafes nearby and shops on Ermou Street, 30seconds away. Mini market next door selling cold alcohol and other necessities. The VIEW of the Acropolis from the rooftop is unreal. There are lounges available and the bar opens around 5.00pm until 11.00m for that special drink whilst staring at one of the worlds greatest icons. The staff were most helpful with directions, advice etc.Would stay again at The Plaka Hotel again and would highly recommend.
