Highly recommended! I am struggling to find anything negative... Positives: 1. Perfect location: withing walking distance of Acropolis, Ancient Agora, Hadrian's Library, Archeological Museum, Syntagma Square. Plenty of restaurants, cafes and shops. 2. Nice rooms and spotlessly clean 3. Extremely friendly and helpful reception staff. A member of staff comes to you at breakfast to ask if everything is OK...

The Plaka hotel was excellent. Maria G greeted us at breakfast and informed us on the daily timetable. Breakfast was fantastic. The cheese and spinach pastries, rice custard, kalamata olives, greek salad, yoghurt, boiled and scrambled eggs were yummy. The bacon and sausages were tasty. This hotel is non smoking but some people like to do the wrong thing. The...

The view from the rooftop bar was stunning - but even the supplied blankets and gas heater couldn't make us stay beyond one drink. Others reviews had said it all, room, breakfast, location, help from the girl at breakfast was excellent. We were going to return to this hotel for the last three nights but their prices had gone through...

The Plaka Hotel, although uninspiring from the outside, is a little gem in the heart of the Plaka district of Athens.

Outstanding hotel for price and service, right in the Plaka. Clean, attentive staff and great inclusive breakfast overlooking the street. Every major site is within a 15 minute walk including the shopping district. The view of the Acropolis from the roof-top at night is gorgeous where you can order your drink and bundle up in a blanket. Would definitely return.

Stayed at the Plaka Hotel for 4 nights bed and breakfast. Hotel is located in the tourist area and well placed for visiting all the major attractions by foot.

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.
