The hotel is very simple and needs a renovation. But the view to the Akropolis while having breakfast is amazing! The location of the hotel is the big sellig point. Very close to the beautiful old city and ro many nice restaurants!

Broken shower (the accordian shower curtain actually had mold that I was able to scrape away with my fingernail. Utterly disgusting.) The room had not been throughly cleaned in quite awhile. There were crumbs of food in the room and hair that most definitely was not mine. The bites I had on my legs after 3 days in the room... More

This hotel is perfectly placed for the walking tourist. Near the ancient ruins and the museum. It's only a short walk to the gardens and other main attractions. There is plenty of restaurants to choose from with in a stones throw of the hotel. Rooms are clean and staff helpful and friendly

Unbeatable location steps from the Acropolis and the Akropoli metro station, this basic hotel is elevated by it's lovely rooftop views. Room and bathroom were basic and clean. Hotel does have an elevator and allowed me to store my luggage for the day after I checked out. Excellent wifi.

We stayed here for one night in Sept 2015 before we headed off to the islands. The location to Acropolis was perfect (literally around the corner)and seemed like a safe neighbourhood. Lots of shops and restaurant options within a minute walk. The roof top patio was beautiful and the girl that worked up there was very nice. Unfortunately the room... More

A small and average hotel by room quality, the Hotel Byron highlights are the great views while eating breakfast and the easy access to all of the main sites in ancient Athens. You can walk almost everywhere with limited time which can often be distracted by ducking into a wide variety of shops. If you are more interested in hotel... More

Stopped here for a lunch whilst doing the sights of Athens. Excellent 'Beer Platter' the equivalent of the ploughman's lunch for about 20 euros. Excellent views of the roof tops of Athens and the Acropolis. Beer was cold which was a necessity, staff were very attentive the roof garden area was well maintained.

The location isn't too bad with all the major attractions within walking distance. Surrounded by restaurants for a bite to eat and near enough to a main road to get a cab. The staff were friendly and we had a few conversations, unfortunately the triple room we had was to small for three people. The bathroom door didn't lock and... More

Staying in Plaka

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
