Clear view to acropolis above and rooftops below. Lovely lunch: Greek salads (superb!) followed by delicious with homemade Greek take on panna cotta. Simply delicious. So relaxing and delicious. Don't know how the hotel is, but this cafe is wonderful.

I had a small, simple room with a view of the Acropolis. My room was quiet and comfortable, roof terrace was great for breakfast, staff very helpful and helped out when I needed a few extra things. Such a great location too.

The Byron is perfectly situated for eating, drinking and sightseeing. The hotel is a little tired and would benefit from an upgrade and a good clean but the staff are friendly and the beds comfy. The roof terrace looks out on the Acropolis.

We stayed in this hotel after a beautiful vaccation on the islands and where not exspecting much since we knew that this is where you pay for the location but it was really terrible. The lady at the reception was very nice but this guy, who we think was the boss seemed strange. The room was horrible, dirty and noisy,...

The room was small and sometimes wifi connection is not so good but overall with very helpful attitude of staff and friendly manner I would recommend this hotel. The lady in the rooftop...

I have stayed at the Byron Hotel everytime I visit over the years. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Athens. The very comfortable, very clean and cosy rooms. The magnificent location, walking distance to everything and the view of the Acropolis from the roof top garden for breakfast is something very special. Lovely balconies off some rooms, in a clean,...

The hotel is very simple and needs a renovation. But the view to the Akropolis while having breakfast is amazing! The location of the hotel is the big sellig point. Very close to the beautiful old city and ro many nice restaurants!

Broken shower (the accordian shower curtain actually had mold that I was able to scrape away with my fingernail. Utterly disgusting.) The room had not been throughly cleaned in quite awhile. There were crumbs of food in the room and hair that most definitely was not mine. The bites I had on my legs after 3 days in the room...

This hotel is perfectly placed for the walking tourist. Near the ancient ruins and the museum. It's only a short walk to the gardens and other main attractions. There is plenty of restaurants to choose from with in a stones throw of the hotel. Rooms are clean and staff helpful and friendly

Perfect hotel for a citytrip, located in the center of ancient Athens, good and friendly service, clean rooms and the best view ever on the acropolis, we can certainly recommend this hotel, restaurants and shops around the corner.

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.
