We only spent one night here and we wished we were staying longer. We arrived very early (having disembarked from a rather hectic cruise at 6.00am) on the Greek Good Friday. We were very tired. We knew that we were way to early to check in but the person on the desk stored our luggage for us and very kindly told us to go up to the breakfast room and have whatever we needed to eat, and we also used the beautiful public washroom. We came back in the afternoon to find that our room was spacious, immaculate and beautifully presented, with a stunning view of the Acropolis. We went out again and returned in the evening. To our amazement a basket of fruit, some water and a bottle of wine had been placed on the dressing table with a 'With compliments' slip. We asked the receptionist for a restaurant recommendation and the one he sent us to was great - fantastic food, great ambiance and a really low bill! The beds were firm but comfortable and there was an easy chair in the room. There is lots of really helpful tourist information provided around the hotel. We also stayed one night before the cruise at the 'A for Athens'. This is also really great but if you are comparing the two, I would say that the Plaka is better for more mature travellers, but the A for Athens has a very lively bar and a more 'happening' location so is possibly better for younger travellers. However, it is a matter of personal preference. They are both excellent.
