This is a quaint, original authentic Greek house that has been converted into the current hotel. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We enjoyed speaking with the owner at length on two different occasions to discuss politics and the hotel architecture. The breakfast was all made in house with many different selections and was delicious. Our room was very... More

The Acropolis House is excellently situated a short walk from the Parthenon in the charming Plaka district. My bedroom was basic but clean and comfortable, with good air-conditioning which was very welcome on a hot July night. The public rooms are charming and the breakfast featuring interesting home-made Greek specialities was very good. The staff were very helpful, with the... More

We were here for eight nights and had a really pleasant experience. All of the staff at the desk are really nice and helpful, and the hotel is situated in an excellent location, in the Plaka area. We were a one minute walk from dozens of restaurants and shops, and just a few minutes to the Acropolis itself. It's also... More

I had stayed at Acropolis House before (2011) when my only criticism was that the breakfast then was rather basic. No such criticism now, the breakfast was as good as I have had anywhere, with a generous hot and cold selection and fresh baking. On two mornings there were eggs cooked in a tomato sauce – delicious! This hotel provides... More

This hotel was a wonderful place to stay during our visit to Athens. It was an easy walk to all the historical sites we traveled to Athens to see. Our room was adequate for what we needed. Plus, we had a small balcony with a wonderful view of the Acropolis. Be warned, there is no lift. If climbing stairs is... More

It was a great pleasure to return to Acropolis House, where I also was last summer, this time for business. My colleague and I got all the help we could need, with careful explanations of how to get where we wanted to go, with lovely and quiet rooms, home made delicacies and the airport express bus just few minutes away....

The hotel is situated very close to the Acropolis about 10 minutes walking time. Also other sites in close proximity are Temple of Zeus, Hadrians arch, first modern Olympic stadium. Superb breakfast. Staff are very helpful and polite. Great bang for your buck!

This hotel had excellent location. It was walking distance to all the major sites such as Acropolis, Acropolis museum ,Parliament and the shopping district. The rooms are small. There are no lifts and the hotel insists on cash even though they do not tell you this on booking. They do take credit cards but with much persuasion.

I've lived in Athens for 4 years and now visit this city regularly. After my latest trip I am convinced that Acropolis House is the best place to stay there.

Forgive the eccentric title, but this hotel does breakfast exceedingly well! Choice of Greek classics like spanakopita or olives along with cereals, yoghurts, omelettes, or amazing fried potatoes- amazing! We stayed on the second floor, and found the bed and shower to be comfortable, the location to be highly convenient, and the staff to be friendly and helpful.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Acropolis House is a preserved mansion of the last century, in excellent condition. It is consisted essentially of two different buildings together. The oldest of these is a stone manor house about 120 years old and the other is well-built four-floor building of 75 years. In 1965 it was modified to a hotel from the family Choudalakis, which operates since. Generally the hotel is a two star family business with character, providing security and full service to both families, and unique people who respect the identity of the hotel. In total the hotel has comfortable single, double and large rooms for families. The Hotel Acropolis House has a non smoking policy in all areas. Guests may smoke in the terrace of the first floor. Hotel Acropolis House is located at the gates of Plaka having so the advantage of being close to all the interesting places without the disadvantage of the hustle of the people and vehicles visiting the site. It is situated in a stunning location, either for professional or tourist as it is a 10-minute walk from the monument of Acropolis and the New Acropolis Museum, 3 minutes from Syntagma Square and the metro / bus and 2 minutes from the commercial and business center of Athens. Near the hotel there are parking, museums, pharmacies and the tourist information office. The hotel has a breakfast room, which served continental style breakfast very early in the morning for early morning flights (from 07.30 Until 10.30). There is luggage storage and safe for customers. Finally, Hotel Acropolis House has a library, with a rich collection, to borrow books from. This is himself occasionally enriched by the customers. ... more   less
