Just returned from a fabulous five nights stay at the Plaka Hotel. This is a great place to stay if you want a central location in the old part of Athens. It is just off Monastiraki Square but in a quiet location with easyt access to the sights and to the tavernas in Plaka. We stayed in room 211 which had a view of the Acropolis. Great view to start your day. Our room was well appointed; of a nice size with plenty of space for clothes etc and a nice bathroom with a large walk-in shower. It was kept very clean with fresh linen and towels every day. Breakfasts are excellent with a large choice from local to continental to english. Free wifi (sometimes a little difficult to access) and free tea and coffee all day. All of the hotel staff were extremely helpful, but particularly Michael on reception who has a great sense of humour and helped us with all of our enquiries. Its most attractive feature has to be the wonderful view of the Acropolis from the roof terrace and after a day's walking through the streets and sites of Athens there was nothing to beat a cool gin and tonic on the terrace absorbing the sunset over Athens and the lights coming on over the Acropolis. Absolutely fabulous and one of those views that just has to be seen. Will definitely be returning to the hotel in the future.
