We had a room facing the street yet it was quiet. The room walls are thin and you can hear your neighbours. We were lucky with quiet neighbours.Room is basic and clean.Air-con. & min-refrigerator both worked well & were quiet. I found the in-room safe frustrating to use, so if you need to check-out in a hurry beware.Excellent location, right... More

We stayed at the Plaka in late June. We took the metro train from the airport to the Monastriraki Metro stop and walked the 5 minutes to the hotel. Much cheaper than a cab and very easy to do even with luggage. We stayed in room 612 with a great view of the Acropolis. The hotel in in the Plaka... More

Walk to Acropolis around a mile. Lots of places to eat and shop very near by. About half way between parliament building and flea market. Mini market right next door. Can see the acropolis to the south and sunset from the rooftop. Rooms do not have a good view. Most everything a little dated. Nice rainfall shower head in glass... More

The hotel is accurately described by many reviews. Great central location, great view from rooftop bar and Acropolis view rooms, pretty good breakfast, tiny elevator, etc. That said, my low ranking is because one male staff member was extremely rude and inappropriate to my wife and I. Normally I wouldn't make a hotel's review based on that, but a quick... More

Plaka is one of the highly rated hotels in the centre that are not in the up-market price range. That position made me try it and I was frankly not convinced. My (single) room was very small, but it had Acropolis view which is a big thing in Athens. All rooms numbering X10 and X11 have that view, starting from... More

Excellent location for access to Plaka, Monastiraki and Syntagma. Spectacular view of Acropolis from roof garden and bar. Rooms on small size when two people with luggage accommodated. Most staff courteous and efficient with the odd surly one. Very good breakfast included, clean and quiet rooms and reasonable value.

Unfortunately I did not have the right expectations of this hotel based on tripadvisor's 4.5 star / #10 ranking for Plaka. From the moment I walked in the door, I was disappointed. However, if you have the right expectations you will probably be ok - expect a very basic hotel (3 star) with dingy furnishings, limited service, old / tiny... More

Staying in Plaka

Neighborhood Profile
Plaka
Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay and play. Its attractive features include small squares, some notable museums and the beautiful Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.
