great view from the balcony: the acropolis is over there and you feel like you can touch it stretching your arm. Position is extremely good: in the heart of the Plaka. Bed is little and room furnitures are not that new. Main drawback is bathroom outside the room. There is also a public balcony on the roof from where you...

We came to this hotel because our family recommended it. They have been there twice before and told us about a charming father and daughter. While this is probably very true (we met the father when we checked out and he did seem very nice), our expirience was very different and unpleasant. When we came to check in we met...

For the price of the stay you get the most of this simple and great location hotel. The rooms are basic, need to ask for hot water in shower (but got it) and very modest breakfast. Summary: great value for the price

Stayed here for one night. The room is small, and the facilities are very basic, but it was clean. The location is what really makes it a good budget choice. It's close to nice restaurants, bars and shops. And a short walk from the Acropolis, ancient Olympic stadium and others. It's about €40 taxi ride from the airport, and €25...

We are about to check out of the Phaedra Hotel, after a one-night stay. It certainly served it's purpose...cool (great air conditioning) and comfortable beds. A great location in the heart of Plaka...walk to everything...from shops and restaurants to the Acropolis entrance as well as the new Acropolis Museum. Small room (with 4 suitcases), tight bathroom, but the shower was...

After doing research we decided on hotel Phaedra because of where it is, in Plaka district. We couldn’t have picked a better location. It’s near to shops, cafes, sights, bus routes the lot. Small but clean room, the staff in the main were good, just one who was a bit grumpy but you always get that don’t you? No safe...

** I've rated it 'Average, but there are GOOD reasons to stay there. I've stayed at the HOTEL PHAEDRA 4 times, and there are a number of reasons why. It's NOT that it's high end, plush beds, flat screen tv, large bathrooms, jaw dropping views or quiet location. It's that 1) it's VERY affordable... 2) They have an elevator (quite...

I had a well-priced room (approx. 60 euros during May/ before high season) that was perfectly located in the Acropolis/ Plaka area. From the airport, I took the Metro train (10 euros) to Syntagma station and changed to the red line for 1 stop to the Acropolis station. You rise out of the ground right next to the Acropolis Museum...

Took subway to red line 1st stop which leaves you a 5 min walk to hotel. We did use google maps to find it as the location is right in the middle of all the great ruins. The hotel is simple but clean. Has balcony, great water pressure, AC, elevator, and very small old tv (we didn't use). It's a...

The hotel is in a great location. My room had it's own bathroom. Looked somewhat updated. Bed was hard, wifi worked well, no shower curtain on shower so when i took a shower water flooded the bathroom. Air conditioning worked well. Fine place for a budget traveler.

Staying in Monastiraki

Neighbourhood Profile
Monastiraki
Monastiraki is a souvenir-hunting enclave with a difference. Apart from the dramatic backdrop of the Acropolis, its network of alleys and pedestrianized streets surround the remains of both the Greek and Roman agoras, adding the quaint concept that this is where the ancients also came to shop. Named after the tiny monastery church at its center, Monastiraki Square is a lively spot by day or night, with street peddlers vying for your attention to sell you nuts and sweets. Down beside the metro station, the official Flea Market is an unbroken row of souvenir shops until you come to antique-oriented Platia Avissinias, while Pandrossou Street on the other side of the square offers more tourist shopping. The pedestrianized street beside the Greek Agora is lined with cafés offering fine views.
