Room was very basic and small. Not a lot of room to move around. Hotel a in a very good location with everything near by and within walking disance.Breakfast was uncooked toast, yoghurt, juice and boiled eggs, so very basic. Hotel staff were quite friendly and helpful.

This hotel is clean and comfortable, However the main sort of attraction is its mirrors on walls and ceilings!! Ideas from friends went from is it a knocking shop to perhaps they are just keen on mirrors!! Sorry but there it is!! The sheer novelty factor is worth it alone. Room 26 had a mirrored ceiling if you wan to... More

Let's start with the good news: the location of the hotel is great. It's close to transportation and most tourist destinations. The hotel staff is also quite friendly, and has provided me with tips on where to go. The hotel room I had was rather basic, and perhaps needed a bit of an upgrade. There was a nice, quiet AC...

Such a nice little family-owned hotel. The accommodations are extremely affordable and clean. We just stayed for one quick night, but if you were spending a few days in Athens, this isn't a bad spot for experiencing the city. The location is right in the center of Plaka, which is perfect for shopping, nightlife and restaurants, as well as visiting... More

I visit Athens just about every summer, staying for a couple of weeks. I have tried various hotels over the years; the Nefeli is my favorite. It is in a safe area; it is very clean; the staff is very hospitable and helpful. And as others have said, the location is hard to beat. In the historic residential area of... More

In our room was disgusting smell. Old furniture, dirty walls. Forget about changing of towels. The bathroom was awful with running water. Breakfast better take in the nearest tavern. I don't like this hotel, However it's close to the Acropolis.

Dear Juliet P, Thank you for your recent stay at Nefeli hotel. I am glad that you found our hotel’s location convenient. Indeed it is situated in Plaka, the old district of Athens, which is very close to Acropolis. We just went through a soft refurbishment, which included the painting of the walls, so I am very surprised that you... More

It was located very close to the acropolis and we could walk everything in the city centre. The receptionists are very friendly and the breakfast was served lovely. The rooms are pretty big and the air conditioning worked great. They have an elevator. I would totally recommend this hotel because the price-performance-value is perfect.

The hotel is located at a very central point. In the heart of Plaka. It has all the basic features and clean. Breakfast is better than I expected ( I was expecting a simple croissant and coffee). The rooms are clean and very simple. The only minus point about this hotel was the hollow gap under the closets which caused... More

İt was my first time in Athens, so considered to find cheap, centered, quiet, clean hotel. And here we go! All you can ask. Lovely clean rooms, nice breakfast, business owners seems hardworker and disipline. Really liked it.

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.
