We only had a night in Athens before catching a plane home but our overnight at the Plaka was pleasant, the view of the Parthenon from the roof bar was intense and we were able to walk to the Acropolis in the morning for a quick tour. The breakfast buffet was decent and the entire staff was helpful and friendly.... More

The hotel is located in the best place for a traveller. Walking distance to the Monastiraki train station which you can get down from after catching the metro from the airport. Awesome restaurants within 50 meters from the hotel door and we tried almost all of them and was very satisfied with the menus. The hotel is somewhat in the... More

Stayed for 3 nights from 6 August 2014 and found hotel perfect as a base to see all the sights. Right in the middle of bustling old district and near flea market as well as ancient sites. Staff very helpful and rooms clean and pleasant. Lovely rooftop bar with great view of Acropolis - lighting up time is particularly magical.

This hotel is great for a short stay in Athens. The rooms are small but clean and nicely appointed, and the air conditioning works well. The staff are helpful and speak reasonable English.

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.
