“Fabulous location; perfect hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed here one night in transit to the airport. It was very convenient to the Monastiraki subway station. 2 blocks and you have access to everything in the Athens area. Many restaurants and bars in the immediate area and the primary shopping area, Ermou street, was a block away.

The hotel was well managed with very high quality materials used throughout. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was small but well designed. The staff was extremely helpful and there were printed materials offering the tourist important information placed near the elevators. Breakfast was very good.

I would highly recommend this hotel.

Perfect location for shopping and to all the sights. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Breakfast is quite variety and taste good. Beautiful view of Acropolis from the hotel roof top. The room is clean and with free wi-fi. The restaurant provides free coffee and biscuit til 5.30pm.

I stayed one night at Plaka Hotel. Overall, very nice staff that was knowledgeable on even the most mundane of questions. They even offered me an umbrella as it was raining.

Breakfast ok, nothing special. Don't read too negative on that, as I'm used to American breakfast with lots of hot options. Unless youre at a major chain in Europe, thats hard to come by.

Double/Full bed is two singles pushed together, that is one thing I wish I knew prior to booking, but just personal preference.

The one negative is that if you are a light sleeper, BEWARE. The walls are very very very thin which kept me up all night, if you catch my drift.

Overall, place was fine. Cheap and cheerful and about as close as you can get to the Acropolis up the hill.....

My wife & I stayed in this hotel on Dec. 2014. Location is excellent, short distance to restaurants, shopping centers and all other sights. Staff were friendly and very helpfull. Room was clean and just OK for the price.
Therefore, I highly recommend Plaka hotel to other travellers.

Thanks to management and all staff with excellent service. We had a great time in Athens.

We stayed here in August.
Location was perfect. Short walking distace to all the sights.
Staff were really helpful.
Restaurant area was just around the corner.
Rooms were basic but clean, for the price it was what we expected.
Breafast room was nice and the food was good and they had a decent selection to choose from.

The roof top area it what is was all about, After a long day of sightseeing, we went up there for sunset and brought our own wine so we could sit down and enjoy the view. They did actually also serve drinks on the roof top, We didnt realise this till we were leaving.

Hotel is centrally located and staff is very helpful and polite. Good choice for sightseeing Acropolis and Plaka area. Room is comfortable and warm and quite clean. We would make the same choice again if in Athens in the future.

The location is amazing. We arrived late at night from a rocky overdue ferry that was simply awful., We were hungry, irritable and needed to shower. The receptionist was very helpful and friendly and got us out of our funk immediately by giving us a great room, giving us time to clean up and pointing us to an awesome place for dinner. I agree with the other reviewers - don't hesitate - book your room already.
