I had a very nice stay at the Hotel Adams in the Plaka in May 2012. It's an easy five-minute walk from the Akropoli Metro station (see directions below).
The place seems to be off the tourist track: it was almost empty and it is a little worn around the edges -- but my room was GREAT: No, 303. It was sort of a little penthouse on the top floor, with a huge balcony that had a view of the Acropolis. (By the way, the Plaka hotels that offer an "Acropolis view" look out not onto the Parthenon, but onto another building, the one that has the flag.) The bathroom was down a little hall and also assigned to the room next door, but that was empty, so I had it to myself. The staff were very nice.
Most of all, the room was wonderfully quiet!! No motorcycles or Plaka crowds of tourists. It is about a block away from the famous Hotel Phaedra, where I had stayed the week before but did not like. My room at the Hotel Adams was better, quieter and cheaper. It was 40 Euros (for a single) as opposed to 70 Euros at the Phaedra. The location is perfect, near the Plaka, Acropolis and beautiful park, but in its own quiet world on a residential street.
DIRECTIONS: When you leave the Akropoli Metro station, follow the street uphill past the first intersection and straight into the Plaka. Within about a block you'll see the Hotel Phaedra off to the right, on the corner, across from a beautiful old church. Turn right at the Hotel Phaedra and walk alongside the church. Keep going straight for a little more than a block. You'll see the Hotel Adams on the lefthand side of the street. It's about 5 minutes on foot.
