- shower cabin without anything stopping the water (not even a curtain): as a result after having a shower the water is everywhere in the bathroom - very impractical and annoying!

Hotel Phedra is basic but the location cannot be beat. It's 2 blocks up from Hadrian's Arch and about 3 blocks over from the Acropolis Metro station, in the Plaka overlooking a Byzantine church. You'll be able to see the Acropolis from your small patio....More
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.
