"Excellent stay at the Plaka Hotel"
My adult daughter and I were in town for business and had an extra 2 days to tour the city prior to the conference. We chose this hotel due to the excellent comments from others and we could not agree more. We were able to come to the hotel early in the morning, as we arrived via a ferry from Santorini. We arranged an extra breakfast (delicious!) that […] morning, were able to keep our luggage in the office area, and were allowed an early check-in. The hotel is located in such a beautiful and central location, the staff is outstanding, and yes, the web site pictures from the roof-top to the Acropolis are true. This is an outstanding hotel that will add to your true appreciation of the city of Athens. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great place to hangout and explore the Plaka area that includes thd Acropolis and surrounding sites. Very good service. Coffee (free) all day until 530pm. Small rooms snd bathroom but certainly more than adequate. You want to be outside and explore most of the time anyways.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Plaka Hotel Dear Guest, We are so happy to read that we were able to offer you a memorable stay in Plaka hotel. We thank you for your review and high score. Best regards Dorina S
Great location and easy to find off of metro. Very modern rooms. A little bummed because I paid extra for a room with a balcony and the balcony was very tiny and basically facing a wall and no view of the acropolis. Breakfast was outstanding - many choices. Would stay again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Plaka Hotel Dear Sue, Thank you for choosing Plaka Hotel for your short stay in Athens. Your positive review and high score is mostly appreciated from all our staff. As per our description rooms with Acropolis View are with large window and not a balcony. I am sorry about the misunderstanding. Thank you again and hope to see you again on a future trip to Athens. Best regards Dorina S
"Very Close to everything, can walk everywhere"
Nice hotel, maid was great, walked everywhere, market right next door was even better, noise level not so good, could actually hear neighbors in the bathroom but overall pleasant stay, breakfast was good and plentifulGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great view & location"
We were very happy with our stay at the Plaka. It is well located in the heart of the "Plaka" and easy to get to - just a short two-block walk from the train line from the airport. We had an amazing view of the Acropolis. The one downside is that our room was tiny - slightly smaller than a a standard cruise cabin. We were offered a larger room when […] we asked if one was available, but it had no view, so we stayed in our tiny room. There are a limited number of rooms with a view, and from what we could tell, they are all smaller than non-view rooms. If you have more than one standard-size suitcase, you may need to forego a room with a view. The breakfast is great - plenty of food and variety. All staff were gracious and helpful. The area is billed as touristy, and it is, but it also means that you have easy access to dozens of restaurants, you're near many of the key sites, and it's very walkable.

"Great location plus great staff equals great hotel"
Great location in the Plaka area means walking to the Acropolis and all the sights. Many restaurants within easy walking range. Facilities are in like-new condition. But the key is the fantastic staff--knowledgeable, personable, customer-oriented. I'd hire any of them.Genuine Expedia guest review

We had a triple - the rooms were cramped. The location is nice if you are looking to be right by plaka and the main shopping area. However it is a little loud and the bells at night woke us up. The breakfast is great, lots of variety and there is free coffee / hot chocolate all day. Overall, a fine experience!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

If you don't need a fancy room and pampering service, this hotel will serve you well. With a good location in the Plaka, the hotel is close to important Athenian attractions.

GREAT BREAKFAST----GREAT VIEW------NO AIRPORT SHUTTLEGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel in the perfect location."
The hotel was all we hoped it would be in terms of comfort and location. We could walk to everything from there and we did. But it was so much more. We were traveling with two other couples so the lovely breakfast room and variety of breakfast food was a great place to convene and start our day. Having tea and coffee there in the afternoon gave a place […] to reconnect after our adventures. And then, the patio on the roof for drinks at the end of the day to enjoy the incredible view was perfect. The staff was well informed and always helpful. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Plaka Hotel Dear Susan, How nice to read that we matched all your expectations! We thank you for staying with us and for raving review. Hope to see you again. Dorina S
"Excellent Location Near the Center of Athens."
Great location for shopping and dinning. Though locating a little bit far away from Athens airport (about 35 kilometers), it's very convenient to take public transportation, bus or train, to and from the airport (5-minutes walk from hotel to bus station and 5 Euro for bus directly to airport terminals).Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Plaka Hotel Dear Rhett, We thank you for choosing Plaka Hotel for your short stay and that you loved the very central location as well as the the unique view of the Acropolis. Your review will definatly help others make their choice and we appreciate your high score. Hope to see again. Dorina S
"Great Hotel & Great Value"
A rooftop bar that looks over the Parthenon - the Royal Olympic Hotel also does this, but for nearly double the price. A rooftop bar. Again, you won't find it cheaper. Friendly, courteous staff and a friendly bartender? Plaka has it. Plus the cab drivers know it, you can walk to most of the major sites, and you're close to Syntagma Square and the Acropoli […] metro station. Great spot. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Experience at Plaka Hotel"
Our party had 3 rooms and stayed on Thursday November 14th. Great location...just 2 short blocks from metro. Staff knowledgeable and accommodating. Superior Rooms spacious, comfortable and clean. We all agreed the beds were extremely comfortable. Beautiful rooftop bar has a breathtaking view of the Acropolis--especially at night. Complimentary breakfast […] buffet was excellent--a good variety of hot and cold food. Hotel staff walked around restaurant at breakfast asking guests if they needed help with tourist info or directions. Area very vibrant...lots of shops, cafes and restaurants to choose from. We were able to walk from hotel to the Acropolis. My family was homesick for Starbucks and was happy to find one a block away from hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Plaka Hotel Dear Ann, We are delighted to read your raving review and we all thank you. We are very happy to read that you found in and around Plaka Hotel all you needed.

"3 Night Stay 11/2013"
Overall we enjoyed the location of the hotel and the absolutely beautiful view from the rooftop lounge and the breakfast, but that's about it. Upon arrival the front desk and reservation staff were EXTREMELY rude and unhelpful in setting us up with the room we'd reserved. The lifts are very tiny, as can be expected all over Europe so that wasn't a hugh […] big deal. The rooms are also quite small and very few face the Acropolis in the rear but the roof top makes up for that. We were greeted on our last day by a very helpful PR representative who was able to help us plan our last day and apologized for our initial welcome, or lack there of by other staff. If only we'd met her on our first day I think we could have been more satisfied with this hotel. It really is convenient to the shops and market, and is just a block from the metro and bus stops, and of course it overlooks the best attraction in Greece. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
First time to Athens and the roof top and bedroom view of Parthenon was perfect. Room was clean and had everything but a hair dryer. Within walking distance of what we wanted. I would stay there again and recommend to my friendsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"wonderful hotel in a great location"
Everyone on the staff without exception was friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. Rooms were small as expected, but well furnished, clean, with usable space, and a great shower. Included breakfast was very good in a nice location with views of the streets below. The view of the Acropolis and city from the roof top was fantastic and the drink price up […] there was very reasonable and the lady serving drinks, was very friendly. There was also a welcome bottle of wine in the room upon arrival. Eva, who I believe is in marketing for the hotel, volunteered suggestions and helpful information during breakfast one morning, which was a very nice touch. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Plaka Hotel and thought it was a good value as well. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Plaka Hotel Dear Emmons, Your enthousiatic review and high score is mostly appreciated and we thank you. We are glad you enjoyed the fantastic view with reasonable priced bar.

"Practical, neither special nor unique"
This is a generally standard property none of the services or amenities are particularly notable. Breakfast was fine. Rooftop nice, but could be more and other properties offer similar views. Elevator and Internet slow. It's a standard hotel in convenient location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Place for an Overnight Stay"
The Plaka Hotel was a nice choice for a one night overnight stay before flying home from a cruise. Very close to shops, restaurants and the Acropolis. Great view of the lighted ruins from the rooftop bar. We had to leave at 3:30 AM to catch a flight and they still provided a wonderful continental breakfast. I would definitely stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Super place in the midst of the Best of Athens"
It was perfect. I could walk to everything I wanted to see, plenty of excellent places to eat nearby. I was given a room with an incredible view of the Acropolis!! I had not even requested it and was really amazed that I was so lucky. Lying in bed, I had a perfect view of the ruins. When they were lit up at night, it was so beautiful! They allow you […] to store your luggage if you arrive early or are leaving late, which effectively lengthened my time there by almost a day. I used their computer and printer to print my boarding pass, check email. They have a glorious full breakfast! And a free espresso/capuccino machine that is available til 5:30 pm! And cookies! There is a rooftop garden for sunbathing and a phenomenal 360 view. There was a full moon setting over the Agora the morning I checked out. Magical. The room was small, but totally fine. Very good condition, very nice fixtures in bath. Small fridge. Elevator. I will add pictures here soon. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Short stay, great location"
We stayed at the Plaka Hotel after arriving from the ferry - we were only there for about 5 hours as we had to get up early the next morning to go to the airport. The hotel was easy to find and in a great location-- We were able to easily walk to our favorite Gyro place near the Acropolis metro station after checking in. The staff was friendly and helpful […] and the room was clean, comfortable and modern. Be aware that the hotel is on the corner of very busy, one-way, one-lane Mitropoleos street - we ended up getting out of the cab about two blocks early and just walking it because the traffic was stop and go.

We chose the Plaka basis comments on Expedia and it's location and were very pleased with all aspects of our stay. Helpful staff - nice touch of complementary wine and baklava - spectacular roof garden view of the Acropolis, quiet rooms with high ceilings - reasonable price - interesting neighborhood with great walking routes - and good restaurants […] close by (try Tepina) - free wifi.

"Rooftop bar and view worth it?!"
This was an average hotel. The room was modest, the bed somewhat comfortable, some of the hotel staff was friendly and some were not so much. The view of the acropolis from the rooftop bar and our room was spectacular. This made it worth it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great, conveniently-located hotel in Plaka"
We were very satisfied with this hotel. Our room had a balcony overlooking the street; for an even better view up we could go up to the seventh floor roof deck/wine bar - particularly nice at night with the Acropolis and other historic monuments illuminated. Although the neighborhood had a busy street life in the evening, the balcony doors were sound-proofed. […] We had no problem sleeping. Staff were helpful with transportation and dining suggestions. Breakfast was included and was better than the typical continental breakfast: both hot and cold food options, and even dessert. The server in the breakfast room was especially friendly.

Ifyou are staying awhile ask for the rooms with a view of the Acropolis. But avoid the 6th floor, it is underneath the deck and everyone is on the deckuntil 1:00. So, I had earplugs, the TV on full blast and the AC on but I could still hear folks on the top moving chairs and walking on my head. I could have moved rooms but there were full up and I would […] have to get a smaller room or one without a view. I opted to not have sleep until 1am. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"I've never been so uncomfortable"
We got to the hotel and it looked like a pretty normal 3-star, euro fashion. Teensy tiny elevator, English speaking staff, and non-accessible. Our room, however, was a different story.

"Good stay in the Plaka"
The Plaka hotel is right in the center of the Plaka for easy stroll to most places in the Plaka, including a walk not too far from the Acropolis.The hotel was sold out upon our arrival so we were unable to book one additional nite stay but sent us to a sister hotel - that was a bit smaller but near the central market whic was most interesting.The breakfast […] selection was adequate and tasty. We especially liked the roof top deck for beverages and a great view of the Plaka and onto the Acropolis. Some of desk staff most helpful but one male could have cared less about most anything.

Only stayed one night, room was nice and clean only problem was the air conditioning. It barely worked so our room was so hot. If I stayed more than one night I would have had to move to another room. Location is near everything, easy to walk around. Nice roof space which was actually empty.

Response by Plaka Hotel Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. We always value our guests' opinion since we believe they are a great tool to be used towards improvement. I am sorry to read that we did not match your expectations during your short stay in our hotel. It is a pity you did not experience the friendly and welcome staff, as most of our guests are raving about. Concerning the small elevator, you are right, but it is something that can't be changed due to static reasons. Hotels of our category in the area were built in the 60's, under different regulations. Concerning your comment on the small room, we have also bigger rooms, and different types and prices. I am really sorry you did not like our city with such a great history. Best regards
