This is a small two floor hotel at the back streets between Ermou and Plaka. There is no lift. Very clean. I requested a room with a double bed (superior), and I ended up with a single bed small room. I complained but they told me that they didnt have a double available, even though I booked months earlier. Nevertheless,...

Useless spending money on bigger more luxurious hotels, this hotel has everything you need, clean rooms, comfortable bed and very central, its 5 min away from Syntagma square and a few minutes into the main plaka roads full of delicious restaurants. This hotel also comes with a lovely terrace with views of the acropolis. The only downside no lift. Overall...

Kimon is in central Athens right next to the Cathedral if you are flying in to Athens you can get the Metro to Syntagma Square this will cost 10 Euros its then a short walk to the Cathedral and hotel the other way is the airport bus I believe its the X95 this will also take you to Syntagma square...

Perfect budget hotel. You're in Athens, all you need is a comfortable and clean place to sleep and this is perfect for that. Hotel is close to Plaka - literally walkable to all major tourist attractions and so many restaurants. The subway is a 5 minute walk. Also great views from the roof! The front desk staff is very friendly...

Located near the Plaka, this budget hotel has seen continuous improvements over the five years we have been staying here when in Athens. Yota and Greg are very helpful and the location is on a quiet street that is close to most of Athens that visitors want to see. (Note: there is not an elevator or a lobby so do...

Excellent service, very friendly people and stuff, very central location but no elevator which can be tiring if your room is on the last floor. Furthermore the stuff also helped us with booking a table at the last minute at a very good restaurant in Athens. All in all I would recommend it.

I needed a reasonably priced hotel close to Syntagma because I was leaving early in the morning and that is Kimon. I was pleasantly surprised by the cozy single room. It was small but I had everything I needed, plus a very comfortable bed! The bathroom unit was also small but the toiletries made of olive oil were a nice...

Loved this hotel which is full of character. Comfy memory foam bed – we didn't want to leave? Clean and bright room adjacent to the roof terrace with stunning views of Acropolis. Everything we needed for a weekend away was provided (except hairdryer.) Great value! Bear in mind no lift so if you have lots of luggage be prepared for...

Stayed in Athens for 3 days. Great value. It is easy to reach from the airport since you can take the metro and walk the rest of the distance. It is typically European (i.e. small entrances and small bathrooms) but great value. I have stayed in a LOT of places in Europe (people in the US dont realize how oversized...

The Kimon is ideally located on the edge of the Plaka and only 5 minutes walk from Syntagma Square (for the X95 airport bus or Metro). Friendly helpful staff are on-hand at Reception 24 hours a day. My room was spotless, modern and comfortable. Breakfast could be ordered on a daily basis and served on the pleasantly shaded roof terrace...

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.
