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... More

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... More

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... More

Great little boutique hotel right by Syntagma Square and the Plaka and 15 minutes walk from the Agora. We stayed three nights and I absolutely loved this little hotel. Great service and it felt very safe and quiet. We stepped out the door, walked two blocks and there were quite a few good restaurants and shops right there. The rooms... More

Good location, good value for a modest hotel. Hallways were a little tired looking, but the room was spare but comfortable. Nice rooftop for a simple, cheap breakfast. If you're looking for a simple, well-priced place to sleep in a good location for a night or two, this is it - but not a place if you're looking to chill... More

This hotel is great and in a decent location if you are looking for an overnight stay in Athens. As a solo traveler, I had no issues with check-in and staff was very nice and helpful. It is around the corner from several restaurants so its great to walk around a bit in this area (but not to far)

I was in Athens for work and didn't want to pay the high rates at some of the conference hotels. I found Kimon and liked the location and price. I have only one complaint about the experience, the mattress was a little uncomfortable, it conformed to my body (this may be a plus for some people). I found the staff... More

A great value for the price - a much nicer hotel than another one up the street we had to stay in during our second visit which was the same price range but not nearly as nice.

This is a very modest hotel in the heart of the Plaka in Athens. The neighborhood is safe, the hotel is walking distance from Syntagma Square, the Parliament, the Acropolis, Monesteraki and public transportation (metro and tram to the beaches).

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.
