Hostel located very close to the city centre, to all the important sites in town and the metro. The only advantage of this accommodation. We paid 40 EUR per night in the end of August for a double room. The room had an adequate size and an average bed. No balcony or terrace, but air con is provided. You don't...

I absolutely loved my experience at Dioskouros Hotel! It is simple, but with a great location and price. The area is very safe and many of the major historic sites are at a 5-10 min walk. The metro station is close by, too. The hostel wasn't very busy when we visited it, so it was nice and quiet. Our room...

The location is fantastic and price wise it is a good deal, especially for summer! We were disappointed with the breakfast, milk was watered down and bread with some preserves were offered not worth €5pp.

The Dioskouros is totally worth a stay just for location alone. It is around the corner from the Akropolis and the Temple of Olympian Zeus. Given it's fantastic location in the Plaka, it is pretty affordable. I will stay almost anywhere for a good price and did not expect it to be as clean, accommodating, and close to archaeological sites...

A great location, you can walk to any of the ancient sites. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was good. Nice to have a sink. Disappointing we could not control the air con ourselves and had to ask the staff to turn it on. Toilets and bathrooms are basic but are clean. A yum free breaky. We would...

Very helpful and friendly English-speaking staff. The location was perfect, within walking distance of most tourist sites. Price range was perfect for what was included, especially if you're on a budget.

Really lovely staff who are willing to help and advise on how best to explore Athens! Also a fantastic location! However, we were disappointed with a number of things. There were no safety deposits or lockers as stated on their websites, not great considering Athens isn't the safest of cities. Nor was the lock on our door working! We had...

We stayed at this hostel for 2 nights. Firstly, the rooms had no a/c as advertised, there was also no safe deposit box to place valuables, even though this was advertised. The room was stayed in was not the cleanest, my friends room also had no lock for the duration of the stay. The toilets and showers were not pleasant,...

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.
