Nice hotel, in good vicinity of transport and attractions. Located down a fair sketchy back street. Good brekky buffet and very poor wifi, often not working at all. Poor service from front dest staff.

The hotel was good, breakfast was fine, the location is great. The A/C was all but not there. I would recommend the hotel but only if the price is good. Easy to walk to the Acropolis and the Plaka area.

My husband and I stayed at the Central Hotel for the first night of our honeymoon. Our room had a view of the Acropolis which was amazing. It wasn't very big but it had everything we needed for a one night stay. The rooftop bar is absolutely incredible. We loved sitting there with a glass of wine and some snacks... More

Hotel very clean and staff helpful and friendly. Great location. Walking distance from the acropolis and close to public transport. Air conditioning was effective, free wifi and rooftop bar. Rooms were small but was clean and had all amenities required for a short stay.

I visited the terrace bar only without staying at the hotel. It is nicely decorated and at the rooftop bar you have one of the best acropolis view at the first row comparing to other rooftop bars of the area. The prices are quite affordable and the personnel very polite and fast. It's very close to the metro station and... More

Booked this hotel for roof terrace. Arrived 1h30 am with ferry to stay for one night. Roof bar and terrace both closed from 1 am, only behind glass view of Akropolis. Free parking available. Elevator small as reported elsewhere, but no problem for us here. Room nice, big 2x2m mirror, additional bed. For recharging one mains outlet at the table,... More

First of all the good: The hotel is clean and the staff is friendly. The roof top bar and view of the Acropolis is fabulous . The jacuzzi is set at a low temp and perfect for cooling off after a hot day. The location is "central" although not very picturesque. The bad: the rooms are too small. The bathroom... 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.
