Reviewed 25 December 2014

We stayed here one night in transit to the airport. It was very convenient to the Monastiraki subway station. 2 blocks and you have access to everything in the Athens area. Many restaurants and bars in the immediate area and the primary shopping area, Ermou street, was a block away. The hotel was well managed with very high quality materials...

I stayed one night at Plaka Hotel. Overall, very nice staff that was knowledgeable on even the most mundane of questions. They even offered me an umbrella as it was raining. Breakfast ok, nothing special. Don't read too negative on that, as I'm used to American breakfast with lots of hot options. Unless youre at a major chain in Europe,...

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.
