“Why stay anywhere else?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Charming hotel in a historic building, right in Plaka (10 minutes to Acropolis). Owners and staff are very friendly and accommodating - including early check-in, sightseeing recommendations, etc. Breakfast is delicious, the best we've had in Greece (homemade jam, freshly baked cake, delicious fruits - all in addition to more common items like eggs, cereal and such).

Room Tip: ask for ground floor if you have reduced mobility (no elevator)

The Acropolis House hotel is located in the heart of Plaka, and close to shops, markets and restaurants. good price, the staff is excellent. The hotel is old, the room we had for 3 people, was terrible: very old, out-dated, very small, and the bathroom was very small also, and lots of doors inside!. besides, and the most inconvenient point is the stairs!! there is no elevator, and carrying luggages up was very difficult for us. breakfast was quite poor.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

The Acropolis House hotel is ideally located in the heart of Plaka in Athens. This makes sightseeing, shopping and eating very convenient. The hotel is over 100 years old and they had a room to accommodate a couple with a teenage son. The front desk people were genuinely helpful and were glad to share any information that they had. Breakfast was good; it was pretty standard fare but the difference was that much of it was homemade (fresh croissants, homemade fig jam). I would highly recommend this hotel.

Nice and clean, the staff is excellent, they provide helpful tips all the time, the location is probably the best in Athens. We used Dimitris for traveling, the best you can have, extremely friendly person and never rush and is always in time.
Hotel receptionist Jasmin and Andreas are great, better will be hard to find. Hope to see you soon

This was my first time in Athens, and I found that the Hotel Acropolis House which is located in the Plaka district was the perfect location for someone who likes to walk. Jasmine and Andreas were always cheerfully ready to help at the front desk, and all of the staff were exceptionally kind and friendly. You got the feeling that there was nothing that they wouldn't do for you if you just asked. The hotel is old, but it was immaculately clean, and it was an exceptional bargain since it also included breakfast. There was a computer available in the front sitting room for those of us who do not travel with internet capability. If you don't mind the walk-up, you can get a room on the 4th floor where you have a splendid view of the Acropolis, and it is really quite spectacular at night. The Hotel Acropolis House is a hidden gem with fantastic staff.

Room Tip: Top floor has a view of the Acropolis, but the hotel is a walk-up; so you need to be ready for the s...

We stayed but briefly but would love to stay again. The hotel was a real find with lots of character and charm. Room was small but clean and comfortable. The air con worked well but was noisy throughout the night. Breakfast was interesting, slightly unusual but Jasmine was a real treat! Very helpful with personality plus! The location was great and we would definitely recommend staying here.
