Location, 5 min walk to Metro. Fantastic breakfast buffet - all night continental breakfast for early airport departures! Great bed, extra pillows, always clean. Staff was most helpful with suggestions for each day - talk with you at breakfast!

We had a great one night stay here enroute to the Aegean. The hotel is well located - steps to good dining choices, the National Cathedral and the Acropolis. The Acropolis view from our room and the rooftop was spectacular. Breakfast was bountiful. Rooms were a little small, but very functional.

The Plaka Hotel is not far from Syntagma Square and Monastiraki Metro, so you would really be in the center of it all. Also, the roof provides an amazing view of the Acropolis. The rooms were what to expect in a European city; however, I returned in the evening to a free bottle of wine and some tasty desserts. The...

We stayed at Plaka hotel for two nights and liked this hotel. The room was reasonably sized and very clean with an amazing view of the acropolis. The open air rooftop bar was also amazing. The hotel was located in a great position close to many restaurants, markets and attractions. Would recommend.

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.
