The location in the Plaka is great and I loved having a view of the Acropolis from my room. The staff though was varied, and about half of them were foul-tempered elderly women. I thought they were mean because my Greek is poor, but I had a Greek friend come over and the receptionist made her sit with her daughter...

My boyfriend and I were traveling through Greece, and absolutely loved the Hotel Phaedra. The people at the front desk were always friendly and helpful (even when we couldn't quite understand each other). The rooms are simple, but have wonderful views of the Acropolis (make sure to request them!). I felt very safe here, and the rooftop is a lovely...

We stayed in the Phaedra on our wedding trip in 1988 and decided to come back because it is truly the perfect place to stay in Athens. The windows of the rooms open to see the Acropolis right above you. The rooms are small and have everything a couple would need to see the ancient capital. The staff are always...

Stayed 4 nights in 12/2012. Great view of acropolis from balcony. Excellent location in Plaka with easy access to airport as Acropolis Metro Station in a 5-minute walk away. Rooms were simple, spacious and clean. Has daily room service, 24-hour reception and elevator. Computer with internet in lobby free to hotel guests. Would definitely stay here again.

Very close to the acropolis metro and museum. It's about a 5 minutes walk. It's in the middle of plaka. Very accessible to all tourist spots by foot. There's a small lift which was a bonus as we had big and heavy luggages. Wifi connection is fast and strong throughout the hotel. We requested for a room facing the acropolis...

If you want to be in the Plaka. If you want to have a view of the Parthenon from your bed. If you are prepared to put up with a hotel at the rougher end of the market. If you are as mean as hell. If you can get by with Greek or are good at mime. If you hate...

We stayed here in October 2012 for three days, after having seen recommendations on a travel blog website. We were very happy with our choice. The location is difficult to beat - in the middle of Plakas, with a very nice view from our room and balcony on the nearby Acropolis. A very nice roof terrasse on which to have...

I stayed here for nearly a week in June. The location is very convenient, just a short walk from the Akropoli metro station, the Tourist Information Office, the Acropolis Museum, and the Theater of Dionysius. The entrance to the Acropolis is a 7-10 min. walk. Since the hotel is right on the edge of Plaka, there are endless tacky souvenir...

This hotel is located in such a fantastic area. It is near the main tourist attractions, bars and restaurants. A little difficult to find so do get detailed directions but if you plan to walk to everywhere most things are on this hotel's doorstep. Also it is really safe! The toilet and shower were across the hallway but it is...

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.
