Great location, clean hotel, friendly staff. The rooms are exactly what we saw on the pictures which I was happy about. The rooms are nicely decorated and clean. The area is perfect as you are close to lovely restaurants, shops and monuments. Will definitely be back.

The hotel is clean, quiet and offers a comfortable stay in a great location. Metro and bus stations are only 5-10 minutes away and hop-on hop-on bus stop is even closer. Plaka, the Acropolis and Acropolis Museum can be reached on foot in 15-20 minutes. Front desk staff are most friendly, cheerful and efficient. Breakfast is good. The staff offered...

This hotel is perfect for a short stay and good value for money. The hotel is clean,the staff at the hotel make the stay worthwhile with always a smile and eager to help. The breakfast was wholesome and good. We stayed in the family room but the layout was open plan which made the room quite small. Public transports and...

Simply loved BEST WESTERN Amazon Hotel! The room and toilet were compact, but well lit, clean and well appointed. They had a coffee maker too. The location is EXCELLENT! 2 min to Syntagma Square, Plaka (historical neighborhood) and Ermou Street (high end shops). We felt safe walking about, even after 10pm. The road is well lit and has a lot...

Central location short walk from Syntagma metro, straight line from the airport with views of the Acropolis. For a small premium you can request a room with a view of the Acropolis. If you do you won't be disappointed. We arrived at night and were blown away by the perfect view of a floodlit Acropolis. The room was adequate as...

I stayed at this hotel towards the end of March. I would say this hotel is average. The best thing about this hotel is the breakfast they provided daily. It would have been nice to see a different variety every day but it's no big deal, it was good. The rooms however, questionable. They were standard and the bathrooms were...

Staying in Plaka

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
