The perfect location, 2 minutes from the metro Monastiraki, in the center of Athens...you can visit, eat, drink, buy, dance and do whatever you want 24/24! They try to welcome us in the perfect way and they got it!Really good experience, good and nice people at the reception and a very sweet and romantic room with view on the Acropole, what else could we want?

Room Tip: Try to get the room with view on the acropole!

Having been in the travel industry for forty eight years and travelled quite extensively throughout the world, this property has the feel of a special boutique hotel, which is most unusual for three stars.

I experienced two type of rooms during my four night stay and both were spacious, also I was very fortunate that with my second room I had incredible views of the Acropolis! The rooms had recently been renovated and were quite modern with all facilities that you would expect in a room. The breakfast was excellent, although I believe a little more variety would enhance it even further by adding hash browns.

One feature that sets this hotel apart from others is its Roof Top Terrace, where you can enjoy a drink of your choice and have fantastic views of the Acropolis both day & night, with the view at night leaving ever lasting memories, as it is "spectacular!"

Whilst the reception staff are very obliging and helpful with information and directions, I believe they could be a little more friendly, as the General Manager has very good PR skills by mixing with all guests at breakfast and offers tips on sightseeing, shopping, places to eat and answers any questions you may have.

The hotel is located in the Plaka district, which is the only area to stay in Athens, as it is two minutes to Ermou Street which is the main shopping mall in Athens with excellent shops, five minutes to Syntagma Square and the Parliament where you can see the changing of the guards every hour on the hour (quite a spectacle.) The famous Acropolis is only ten minutes away.

The Plaka Hotel is idealy situated with shops and restaurants on its door step, plus it is only five minutes walk to the Monastiraki Flea Markets. Also the Monastiraki Metro Station is five minutes walk where you can conveniently catch the Metro to & from the airport and to Piraeus. The Moniastiraki Square located in front of the Metro Station has lots of character with amateur performances being performed most days & nights.

In summary I highly recommend the Plaka Hotel for all type of travellers, as I had the option of staying in a five star hotel on my tour, but chose the Plaka Hotel because of its location and what a little gem it is. Dont forget that "Roof Top Terrace" with amazing views of the Acropolis!

Very pleased with this find booked through Octopus Travel. Advertised rates on the back of the door said something ridiculous like 200 euros a night, but we stayed in a double room (2 singles pushed together, such is the case for a lot of hotels in Europe) for 50 euros a night. Room small but clean, bathroom very small but had good pressure, always hot shower, toilet and sink. No noise at night (we were on quite a high floor though). It was 10 mins' walk from the nearest tube station, and right in the centre of stuff so a great location - loads of restaurants/cafes/bars within 5 mins.The breakfast was included and was an all you want buffet with full English choices or Greek things like thick Greek yogurt and honey, feta, olives, tomatoes and cucumber, and fruit juice and tea/coffee. Would definitely stay there again.

The hotel is perfect for having a nice rest during the night. The staff is very very kind and is always behind your needs. We would like to thanks Tonia especially for all her kindness and tips that let us made the most of our time in Atenas. The breakfast is very complete. And the terrace is a must! You can go there any time during the day or night, and enjoy the view of the Acropolys and the Agora. The only thing that should be taking care off is that internet acces is not free. You have to pay in order to use it, 2 euros the half hour or 8 euros per day. If your computer is out of order, they have only one PC for all the guests and you have to pray for it to work. Anyway the location is perfect and you can move easily arround the city using the public transportation, or even by walk, without any kind of trouble. Besides, the train that departs from the airport leaves you only 3 blocks from the hotel.

the last stop on our mini tour of eurpoe and it was a great way to end. Hotel was clean, modern and located very close to all the sites, you can see the temple in all its glory from the rooftop bar at night- we travelled by foot to see everything. Hotel staff were very friendly including the hotel manager who made the effort to come and speak to all her guests at breakfast, she told us where to go sightseeing, great places to eat authentic greek food and how to get around which saved us sooooo much money! We mentioned we needed a massage and she even arranged that for us (best massage EVEEEERRRR!!!)

Only downside was that we werent to sure where to go out clubbing, and ended up at a fancy bar
