It's hard to decide what I loved the most; the comfortable bed, the great breakfasts or the incredible views of all of Athens from the rooftop. My husband and I really enjoyed our 3 nights at Plaka Hotel, very close to the Metro, restaurants and shopping. Breakfast was included in our rate and there was a fabulous range of Greek...

The Plaka was a lovely hotel, and very convenient to all the historic sites. The staff was very friendly and helpful, especially the bartender at the rooftop terrace bar. The view from the rooftop was spectacular! We went up there each night of our stay for some relaxation at the end of a busy day seeing the sites. The room...

I stayed twice at this hotel (total of 5 nights) - at the start and end of my trip to Greece. Coming from the airport, it was an easy 7 minute walk from both where the bus stops (Syntagma Square) and the metro. All sights are within easy walking distance and there are tonnes of eating/shopping options. Rooms are clean,...

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.
