My husband and I spent three nights here in October. The hotel is in a great location for those who want to explore Athens - the Acropolis is within walking distance, as are many of the other sites.

Great location and the view of the Acropolis from the roof bar is exceptional. Staff were very friendly and actively went out of their way to help. Breakfast was excellent including great greek yoghurt and honey. Having access to free tea and coffee during the...More
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.

The last time I visited (September 2017), the Plaka Hotel did not have an evening dining room. A very generous breakfast buffet is included in your room rate during the morning and complimentary coffee/tea/hot chocolate/water and biscuits are available through out the day until 5:30 pm....at which time a delightful roof top terrace bar opens. The roof top terrace provides one of the most spectacular views of the sunset over the City of Athens and of the illuminated Acropolis. There are so many restaurants within walking distance of the Hotel that offer an array of traditional and contemporary Greek cuisine, as well as vegan, European, and international fare, from super-cheap to fine dining.

The airport is approximately 20 miles from the Athens City Center. There is a taxi stand just outside the Terminal (Exit 3, across from the Sofitel Hotel). The rate to the City Center is a flat rate of 38 euros, including the toll, so don't pay more unless the driver is handling a lot of luggage. After 12 midnight through 6 a.m., the flat rate jumps to 54 euros. This is the fastest, easiest way to transfer, but both the taxis and buses are dependent on traffic conditions.
Alternative transportation includes:
Bus # X95: Leaves the Terminal (between Exits 4 and 5) which takes you to Syntagma Square in approximately 40-60 minutes. Cost: 6 euros The Hotel is about an 8 minute walk downhill from the Square.
Metro: The metro takes about 40 minutes from the airport to the City Center. Tickets and instructions can be found on the Automatic Ticket Issue Machines. Especially if you are handling luggage, I would caution you about pick pockets; a problem on any major city subway. Your subway stop for The Plaka Hotel will be Monastiraki. When you exit, it will be about an 8 minute slightly uphill walk through a crowded shopping area. I hope that this helps!

No, they don't have these facilities in the room but you can get some after breakfast till 5pm in the breakfast room for free. After that you have to buy it on the roof terrace or walk 20 yards any which way and there are loads of coffee places including a starbucks.
