This was the final leg of what felt like a very long holiday! The rooms are clean, modern, with really nice bathrooms. Service was pretty good and the buffet breakfasts weren't too bad either.

Excellent position and good amenities. The view from the roof is amazing. And wonderful Aircon. We were actually too cold in the night and had to turn it off! if you get there by metro make sure you have a map as it is about 200 metres from Monisteraki.

Dear Flyboy192, Your "first rate" review was extremely energetic and we are all thankful! I agree with your notice, that though Plaka Hotel is located on central street,Mitropoleos, it is helpful to print directions from the site of the hotel. Thank you for your high score. We look forward seeing soon again. More

We recently stayed here and the hotel staff were so friendly and accommodating. It was such a short walk to the Acropolis, which they explained on the map so we wouldnt get lost. We had a great view from the Rooftop and from our room and received complimentary sweets and water on arrival. Would definately recommend them!

This hotel is in a great location. It is really close to a Metro station, but more importantly, you walk around the corner, and there's Hadrian's Library and the beginning of a lot of the ruins.

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.
