I loved this centrally situated hotel in the heart of the Plaka district. The staff are all kind, helpful and friendly. The breakfast offered is one of the better ones I've seen in a small European hotel. It felt like home while I was there for a longer stay. The historical sites are in walking distance, and the hotel is...

Arrival at the hotel from the airport was good. The street was a one-way and the driver didn't plan to drop us off at the front. We aren't sure if we were "taken" on our fare from the airport, but driver was entertaining. We paid 65euros. Room 405 at the front of the hotel-corner room. It was a little noisey,...

The Plaka Hotel (located in the area known as the Plaka) is superbly placed for sight-seeing and Athens certainly has the sights. Not least is the view of the Acropolis from the roof-top terrace (with bar after 5.30pm). The twin bedded economy room was quiet, clean and comfortable, large enough but fairly small. The breakfast was first class with a...

Plaka hotel is extremely well-located. It is within walking distance to all the major tourist attractions in Athens. Staff are extremely friendly and always ready to assist you with any queries. The breakfast buffet provided is nothing fancy but definitely adequate for you to start the day right.

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.
