The hotel is in good location perfect for tourist. The staff is very friendly and helpful. the Breakfast is nice and the price too. However the air conditioner was not working as we were expecting. The room was very hot to sleep, we did not inform to the staff because we were only one night.

The hotel is a good location within the Plaka area. It is family-run and everyone is friendly and helpful. Breakfast is included in the price and you have a good selection. It is also clean! As other posts mention you are expected to pay in cash.

This hotel is perfect for tourists, and should be good for just about anyone visiting Athens. The location is close to the Acropolis and Syntegma Square (transport to everywhere including the airport), has a very helpful staff, and breakfast is unsurpassed. On our way out of Athens, we stayed at a B&B near the airport. It would have been more... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night on our recent trip to Athens. It is an interesting old historic house that was turned into a hotel. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The location is excellent - just a short walk to stores, restaurant and historical sights. We stayed in a room with an in suite bathroom.... More

The lobby features 6.5 meter ceilings and original Pompeian style frescos from the 1800s. An attached sitting room is another wonder of frescos. I wish I had found this place sooner. From now on I will only stay here when in Athens. Its not for everyone I know. It is old yet spotless. The breakfast is homemade down to the... More

The Acropolis House is in a nice old house in neighborhood (Plaka), close to a pedestrian street full of restaurants and tourist stores that goes to the Acropolis. Also very close to Syntagma Square (subway station and bus to the airport). The room was small, the bathroom was modernized. Breakfast was fantastic.

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

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
