I've been abroad a zillion times before, but this time, it was our first proper "sun-holiday", and went to Zakinthos/Zante. I didn't really know what a sun holiday was, - I thought these things were a lot more exciting, but unfortunately, we ended up in major Karaoke-land Irish bars, English food, Arsenal jersies, no cultural stuff, and undrinkable salty-water on...

This hotel was in a great location, near Ermou and Monastiraki Sq, w alking distance to everything including Psirri, the Plaka and the Acropolis. We reserved the room over the phone, with a very genial english-speaking receptionist. The rate was 65 euros / night. We arrived late due to a flight delay, and they were holding our room, as expected....

Since we knew not what to expect from Athens, we let an agent do all our bookings. We were happy with this choice - desk open 24 hours (we got in after midnight). I think the room rate was around 75 euros per night. PROS: Location is convenient to train station (Monasteraki) and bus (Syntagma). About a 10 min walk...

I enjoyed our stay at Carolina. Rooms are simple but clean and functional, staff is friendly and service minded, they waited ½ hour for us when we were late for breakfast. Balcony was an unexpected bonus. And the location is fabulous, close to everything including our favourite bar two doors from the hotel.

I had to stay 4 nights at this hotel. The rooms are uncomfortables, the baths are even worst. The A/C did not work. I tried to sleep in a "cold" room with blankets. The staff have not interested with this problem. They gave an electric heater at last. I feeled myself in a getto. I have not had the possibility...

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.
