The Plaka is perfectly located in the centre of Athens. Just about everything you would want to see is within walking distance. If not, the metro is very nearby. Apart from the location, the hotel's strong points are the friendly and helpful staff and the wonderful view from the roof terrace. I would say that the hotel is starting to...

Fantastic hotel, neat, safe, comfortable, very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was brilliant and the free coffee, biscuits and hot chocolate throughout the day was a great bonus. Perfect location with a great rooftop view of the Acropolis. Also a huge bag of laundry was only 9€. Would definitely recommend staying here when you visit Athens.

I just had to write this review while we're still at the amazing Plaka Hotel! We have been here for 7 days seeing all of Athens. This hotel is a travelers dream. First of all, the location is ideal, surrounded by restaurants, cafes, great shops, little markets and great little touristy stores. Our room on the 3rd floor; wonderfully comfortable...

Desk was super helpful and accommodating... We had a view of the Acropolis--which was absolutely beautiful (definitely trumped not having a pool); and for those who did not have a room with this view, you could easily access the rooftop and sit back on some comfy lounge chairs & couches (there was also a bar at the top). Rooms were...

We stayed here for three nights at the beginning of our trip to Greece. The hotel is very well located for tourism, nightlife and shopping. It is a five minute walk from Monastiraki metro station - very handy when coming in from the airport. The staff were extremely helpful and accommodating.

Stayed 3 nights beginning of February 2017. The room was on 6th floor (603) and a decent size, not too small, with a lovely little balcony which gave a partial view of the temples by the Acropolis. The view from the roof top bar is outstanding and unobstructed. The wifi was also very good and you get the password with...

Staying in Plaka

Neighbourhood 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.
