Reviewed yesterday NEW

Well, I was grateful that they could fit me in for a night, but the room was right under the stone staircase with people tramping up and down to the rooftop bar. The position is quite fun, right near Monastiraki and lots of small historic churches, but in true Greek stupyle I didn't get much sleep. The view from the...

Rooms small but very comfortable. Very clean and rooftop bar a must at sunset. Breakfast was good with a varied selection. I would stay here again. Only ten minutes walk to Acropolis and the museum, also the Plaqua.

This Hotel is clean, staff are friendly and helpful. The roof bar although only snacks are served we had good wine and a meat plate excellent. View is just great and we were there in January! Location is also very good for restaurants and transport.

We spent 5 days at the Central. It was easy to catch the X95 bus from the airport and walk the 4 short blocks to the hotel. We were initially surprised by the small size of the room and bathroom - but we quickly got used to it. Everything was beautifully clean, with great air conditioning so we slept perfectly....

You can't beat the value, Terrace lounge was great, Breakfast good. Close to subway, buses. Old district is spot on for history buffs, staff was very accommodating. I would recommend. Use subway from airport, it's easy and much cheaper then a cab

The location of this hotel is amazing being a mere two minute walk to the main metro station, Syntagma, and the centre of Plaka. It is perfect for tourists because the centre of Plaka is where the hop-on-hop-off bus tours start (highly recommend for an easy way to get to all the main sites without costing a fortune). The view...

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.
