Perfect hotel for a one night stopover in Athens. It's in the middle of a vibrant part of town, you can watch the sunset over the Acropolis from the lovely rooftop bar, and it's friendly, clean and comfortable.

Great location. Close to shopping and subway (metro). Tons of restaurants nearby. Located at the base of the Acropolis. We stayed on the 6th floor which had an outstanding view. We enjoyed the rooftop patio in the evenings. Room was small but clean and modern. Nice bathroom. Good water pressure. Decent breakfast. A/C and fridge only work with a key in the slot. Wifi was decent. Convenience store located next door for purchasing beer and water. Elevator is small. Would recommend.

We booked this hotel quite last minute for a decent price and were quite pleased with it.
Good central location, and easy transportation to/from airport by bus/metro and to other places as well. The Acropolis was walking distance which was ideal as we had a short time in Athens and wanted to start early.
The room was very clean, nicely kept though not the view of the Acropolis. But no matter as the rooftop garden has a beautiful view of it. We relaxed with a drink in the evening as the lights started to come up over the city.
Staff were very helpful and friendly, directing us to the nearest dining places and other facilities.

Room Tip: The markets nearby are great for dinner! Rooftop bar is open from 5.30pm but you can ask to go up an...

Stayed a night before flying back home yesterday. The hotel is standard with no special "extra". Rooms are clean, BF is average, staff professional, not super friendly but location is great at the middle of Plaka area, a few minutes walk to Acropolis.
Paid 140€ a night which I think is too much for what i got, but this was August high season...

Room Tip: Try to get the rooms with the Acropolis view

Dear Guest,
Thank you for coming to Plaka Hotel for your last night. I am sorry to read that you did not have a great experience, as most of our clients. August is high season and this is why the price was higher that other periods. In our attempt to improve we surely value all the feedback and hope that on a future trip to Athens you will give us the oportunity to prove it to you. Please do not hesitate to contact me directly. Best regards.

My husband and I stayed in this hotel for 4 nights for a holiday. This hotel is perfectly located. Everything is within walking distance all touristy places, shopping , bar and restaurant.
The room is spacious and very clean with a lovely balcony. Even though you are in the hustle of everything we did not hear any noise.The morning breakfast is really nice.They have a huge variety and staff will not pick up the breakfast even if you have come late.Through out the day you can go to there restaurant and you can have the free tea/coffee and cookies. They have an excellent roof top bar with a beautiful view of the acropolis and the bar lady is really sweet
The front desk staff is very helpful and also ready to answer all your questions
All in all a perfect stay and would definitely recommend anyone to stay here

Great hotel- close to safe, tourist area of Athens. Clean rooms, good breakfast buffet and amazing rooftop views of Acropolis. Good value. Hotel staff thinks of everything- including having a luggage scale in the lobby, and keeping cold cucumber water available in the breakfast area all day long.

The location of this hotel is really good especially for those who enjoy shopping. The main shopping street Ermou is just around the corner and you can find many great restaurants and coffee shops nearby.

The rooms are nice, nothing special but for the price you pay you get enough. Rooms have AC which is a must during summer time. Breakfast is alright too.

I would recommend this hotel if you're staying in Athens.
