Room was a bit on the small size, but otherwise nothing to complain about. Breakfast good enough that you don't need lunch. Nice touch of free tea/coffee/hot chocolate and biscuits in the afternoon in the bar to revive after afterrnoon sight-seeing. Didn't need to use transport in the city, because everything in reasonable walking distance. Good service from the hotel...

This hotel was exactly as it was advertised. The view from the rooftop was breathtaking. In warmer months, it would be amazing to sit up there in the day time or the evening to enjoy it. Also, the complimentary breakfast was tasty. It was not anything particularly special but it had plenty to offer and was a nice start to...

I got the single room at the end of the corridor on 1st floor. The room was small but lovely. Clean shower. Free WiFi with complimentary wine (first day only). The room has a balcony viewing the back alley so it's quieter. Don't mind not having the Acropolis view from the room as the rooftop is always opened. The bar...

My mother, my wife and I spent 4 days at the Plaka in mid-November and really enjoyed our stay. This was my first time to Athens, and to be honest I do not think I'll be going back. Other European cities have so much more to offer. In any event, if you do decide you must go to Athens then...

We have just returned from a long week end in Athens and would very much recommend this hotel. It is amazingly central and minutes away from a direct train line to the airport. All sights can be reached by walking except possibly the harbour which is a bit of way along a not so nice road. This meant that we...

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.
