About the neighbourhood
What I like the most of this area is the fact that it is always alive, full of things to do, on a walking distance. Whatever you might need is on your feet. Acropolis is a 15 mins walk. Plaka, the small village under the Acropolis, is practically your neighborhood. Movies, theaters, Acropolis museum, the best restaurants of the city, all are around. Lately this area became the place to be, for its nightlife as well. The hippiest bars and tavernas of the city are located here. This is the place, us Greeks, we go out the most, during the nights as well. Acropolis, Ancient Agora, Marble Stadium, Athens National Gardens, Theater of the Herodeon, Conference facilities at major hotels nearby, the Peace and Friendship stadium,
National Archeological Museum, Benaki Museum, Museum of Cycladic Art, Folk Art Museum, Children s Museum, Mt Lykavittos. Another plus of staying here is security. Being so close to the Acropolis and the central square of the city means that Police is always around. The truth is, that there are no new apartments in this area as it is the preserved old historical center. Nearby there are the great big luxury hotels of Athens, like Grande Bretagne Hotel and King George Hotel, but as you can imagine they offer this privilege, staying at this very central location, at a high price.
