Great location in the centre of the Plaka

Everything is on your doorstep and the view from the rooftop bar never fails to impress. Good price too - for the location. Thanks Plaka Hotel!

Great hotel close to amentities, shops and restaurants in the Plaka area. The roof top bar is a great way to finish the day with a cool drink watching the sunset over the magnificent Acropolis. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Rooms are not overly large however comfortable enough for 2 people to stay.

Central location

The Plaka Hotel was perfectly located - 5 minutes from Monastiraki metro, the ancient Agora, Syntagma Square. The hotel staff was excellent - friendly & helpful - and best of all was the rooftop bar with uninterrupted views of the Acropolis & the entire city. Brilliant!

Great location and room.

I made an error on the booking by selecting only 1 person. When I checked with my wife they charged me an extra 35 euro. Their reason was, it was a twin room. I showed the clerk my booking which stated 1 queen bed, he then told me that was to cater for overweight clients. I asked why I had to pay an extra 35 euro when I had already paid $250 Aus. He said that it was to allow for the use of the room, even though there was 1 queen bed, 2 towels and 2 glasses that went with the water and wine.

Great value

Pros: Nearly everything
Cons: One of our group did not have a working fridge. Milk for cup of tea. English compendium
Location: It's in a perfect position
I stayed at this hotel in 2004. It still represents excellent value for money, and has everything a tourist needs. It is so popular ( especially with Aussies), that two friends, who opted to join our private tour, more than 3 months earlier, had to stay in a hotel up the road, as the Plaka was i Breakfast was good, and the staff very helpful. We had made prior arrangements for tours and transfers, but the hotel were happy to organise these services, plus tickets for the Parthenon, Acropolis museum etc., The rooftop terrace was particularly wonderful. We spent a couple of hours each night gazing up at the Parthenon on the Acropolis, as the sun set, and the lights came on. No pool, but this hotel is centrally located in the heart of the Plaka. Perfect! A small general store was next door, and a larger supermarket only 100 metres away. Wifi was reasonable and free. The bathroom was small, but very clean, modern and functional. I would definitely stay here again, if visiting Athens.
