Excellent hotel. It's a small hotel and the rooms are very small but quite compact and very nice. Clean, beyond perfect location, great staff, amazing amenities included, great views and great price. I was really quite surprised. If you are used to extremely large rooms I suggest you just get past that. I did and it was really perfect. Everything had it's place. There was a welcome bottle of wine with a note card in my room when I arrived. The complimentary breakfast included was HUGE!!!!! From 3-5 each day they have complimentary tea, coffee and hot chocolate and cookies. Then, if you have an early flight, they have a continental breakfast that starts at 3:00 AM but I've never seen a breakfast that size. It's amazing what they include for the price. The view from the rooftop terrace is spectacular. The location is within walking distance to everything. Absolutely everything with the exception of the port. It really was a perfect stay at this hotel. The staff was lovely as well. GREAT experience!

Room Tip: My room had a view of the acropolis, my nephew's room had a view on the plaka area over the stre...

We have stayed at multiple hotels at Athens but we liked Plaka the most. The location is near to all the historical places including Acropolis and metro. The staff is just excellent, they helped us in planning our day and also helped us check in early. Breakfast is also quite good.

Room Tip: Higher floor is better for good view.

We couldn't feel more satisfied and happy with our accommodation choice. As central as a location can get, simple and cozy rooms, great breakfast and the most helpful staff. No reason to stay anywhere else in Athens, the Plaka Hotel has it all for the most fair price.

Great view of the Acropolis from the roof top, great location close to many sights and restaurants, good value for the 2 connecting rooms with breakfast included and friendly staff who are helpful. Would put this on my list if returning to Athens which is very likely as the whole family loved and enjoyed Athens.

Lift could be a bit slow as it is a small one and especially when busy with check-in/out times with luggage. We just used the stairs a lot but that is easy if you are not staying higher then the 3rd floor.

Plaka Hotel in downtown Athens is the best place to stay while visiting Athens. Superb service: clean towels daily, great breakfast buffet, clean and chic rooms with a view of the famous Acropolis and best of all, an English speaking staff Monica Fajardo and Tonia Andrioti, and Agnes made our stay the best ever in Europe. I've traveled to many countries (Germany, France, Japan, South Korea, etc) but this hotel experience at the Plaka has been the most outstanding and I will go back because it felt like home.

Room Tip: get a room with the view of the Acropolis
