I selected this hotel mainly due to his location, near Syntagma sqr, x95 bus to the airport, and the Acropolis. Nice, decorated, quite and clean hotel, with reach breakfast and reasonable price. The elevator is slow, but otherwise everything was good.

Decent room, nothing fancy. About what I would expect for the price payed. The hotel is located in the heart of Athens' Plaka district. Everything can be reached very easy. Views from the roof are great.

I stayed at this hotal (as I have several times before) while attending a conference and workshop. Our client uses this hotel for all its international guests and it has the virtue of familiarity, dependability and location. The location is, in fact, hard to beat. Poised strategically between Syntagma and the Plaka. It is close to everything, including the airport... More

I booked this based on positive reviews. I seriously don't know what hotel these others people are staying at. This hotel is not terrible, but really really annoying. Everything is a bit off! For example: - the bathroom isn't really in a separate room. I.e it's all a bit open with just a separating glass door that is about 30cms... More

Take the train from the airport - half the cost and its FAST!! You will have to walk a couple of blocks to the Hotel but its all about the experience. GPS is your friend.

A quite hotel in the centre of Athens only 3 minutes walk to Ermou. Monastiraki and Sintagma are very close. Very clean hotel with friendly people and warm atmosphere. The breakfast was very nice and when we asked for Greek coffee we got it with no extra charge !:)

We're staying here a total of 7 nights in two visits. The rooms are very modern and a bit small, plus the elevator is slow and has a capacity of only three. Aside from those minor negatives, the beds are comfortable, housekeeping is very good, the breakfast buffet is all anyone could ask for, and the staff are friendly and... More

We stayed at the Central Hotel Athens for one night while our cruise overnighted in Athens. We opted to stay in this area to maximize our time seeing the sights and not hassle with going back and forth to and from the port each day, and I'm glad we did.

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.
