We rented 2 rooms here for a post cruise extra stay and were so happy we did. Fantastic location! Easy walk to the Acropolis and central to all the shopping and restaurants in the area. We needed to check in early as our cruise ship docked at 7:00AM and the staff was super accommodating. Our rooms were on the 6th... More

Stayed two nights here and enjoyed the location in heart of Plaka. The room was comfortable and clean and bed was good. Breakfast was very good. Like it's sister Hotel Hermes, the Plaka offers great laundry deal - large bag for 9 euros, also luggage storage and early take away breakfast if required. Luggage scales are useful and a cab...

If you want to stay in the Plaka area, it would be hard to beat this hotel for price and convenience. Our room was spacious by European standards, the staff was incredible and the breakfast presented very well, with plenty of choices. The bed was comfortable, nice pillows and a great breeze from the window. A better view would have... More

Super hotel in a great central location. Clean efficient and friendly. Everything works. And the staff are friendly and helpful. Everything is within easy walking distance and transport links very easy. Loads of restaurants and bars within easy reach. And it's pretty good value too. What's not to like?!

My husband and I stayed here three days pre cruise. The location is perfect for tourists plus the view is amazing from the rooftop. Besides that, though, the staff is very accommodating. They do all they can to make a visit perfect.

I stayed at the Plaka for just one night. On check in, the staff were so helpful. I had s lovely room with a great view of the Acropolis - even more stunning when lit up in the evening.

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.
