I stayed at the hotel one day before a night flight. The second time I would not stay here, although the hotel has pluses. Pluses: 1. Good location. All major attractions of Athens are within walking distance. 2. The Administrator will draw you right on the city map, the circular route, passing through which you can see the main historical...

This is a fine and fairly cheap hotel in the Plaka, very close to Syntagma and Monastiraki. I can't find anything wrong with it, to be honest. The breakfast is great, the staff is super friendly, the hotel is nice.

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.
