3 night stay in Athens. The Plaka was a good choice--friendly, helpful staff, huge breakfast buffet, great view of the Acropolis from the Terrace Bar.

"SSHhhhh. Keep this a secret."
Plaka Hotel is a sweet little gem. The location, the rooftop and the kind staff make it my favorite home away from home in Athens. This my 5th stay there and I am always reluctant to share the good news for fear some day it will not be available when I come through Athens. Sitting on the rooftop at sunset is as close to heaven as one can get in Athens.

"Incredible View of Acropolis from Rooftop Bar"
This hotel provides an excellent location and incredible rooftop view of the Acropolis. Breakfast every morning was hearty and delicious and the hotel staff were available at breakfast to assist with anything we needed, for example, how to get to sites, advice for touring, etc. This hotel is within walking distance of the Acropolis, the Archaeological Museum and the metro station. We really enjoyed visiting with the lady managing the rooftop bar. She provided great service and is friendly and kind.

"Great ubication in Plaka."
This hotel is ubícated in the very famous distritct of Plaka. It is 8 blocks from Syntagma Square , so if you take bus 95 from the AirPort (5€ one way) , and if you have small suitcases, you can walk down the hill to the hotel without needing a taxi. It is also located hall a block from the post office .Check in was pretty fast ( low season) and the staff members are very nice and helpful, they give you maps and tourist information. There is only one lift that accomodates only 3 persons and a small suitcase. The Acrópolis view rooms are magnificent! They give you a complementary fruits ,water , sine and Greenpeace candies . Room are spacious , clean, with Air conditioning working well,safety box,( works only with your key room). Internet signal is low at the room but is fast at the lobby or the restaurant. The bathroom is also very clean and with hot water at any time. Breakfast is very good, with variety of cheese, sausages, eggs, balee tomatoes and delicious pastries. There are cookies , coffe, tea and chocolat from 4 till 5;30 for free. If you do not choose Acrópolis view, you can have incredible sights of it from the roof terrace where you can buy a few drinks. I would highly recomend this hotel .

"Nice hotel in the middle of everything"
Plaka Hotel is literally in the heart of Plaka, we had a room with a acropolis view which wasn't worth what we paid for because there was a house under construction in front of it and put a damper on the view. The room was clean but not spacious at all. The staff was somewhat helpful except for one of the ladies (not sure the name) that seemed annoyed every time we asked for help. The only positive of the hotel is that it is walking distance from everything you need to see. In my opinion, next time I would stay in the other areas that are more economic, but still close to everything, with better food and later nightlife.

"Great value and location is perfect!"
This hotel is in the heart of Plaka and is the perfect central location for sightseeing in Athens. The rooms are bigger than usual for a hotel in a major city in Europe. The room is basic but very clean. There maybe other hotels in the area but I find this hotel to be perfect location wise. It's not on a main street so it's quiet but very close to the action in Plaka. The breakfast is pretty basic but good. You get all the food groups you need. Nothing fancy but it ties you over for a long day ahead. I highly recommend this hotel if you want the basic no frills accommodation and if you want value for your money. The rooftop bar is so lovely for enjoying a cocktail and a gorgeous view of the Acropolis all lit up at night. Great service, clean hotel, reasonable rates.

Over several years we have stayed at the Plaka Hotel at least 3 times. Each time we noticed updates to the rooms. The hotel has done an excellent job of maximizing space within the rooms and small bathroom facilities so they look modern, fresh, and clean. The location is outstanding. We walked from the metro stop to the hotel a short 3 blocks and walked to all the major sites in the heart of Athens, ending our visit with a rooftop dinner in the Plaka.

"Good Location, Clean Room"
We stayed at the Plaka for 3 nights during a 14 night trip through Turkey and Greece. The location is unbeatable and the room had plenty of space and was clean. In addition, the rooftop bar had a beautiful view and the breakfast was great every morning. However, we were slightly disappointed with the temperature of the room (weak air conditioning and was located in the corner so it was warm), the internet (could not connect from the room), and the level of noise that could be heard through the bathroom (we kept the bathroom door closed and could still hear everything). Overall, would recommend the hotel for someone looking for a good clean hotel in a central location, but just keep in mind the things we experienced.

Very nice hotel, close to all Athens attractions. The Rooftop deck is worth a lot: visit with other guests over a drink while looking up at the Parthenon, especially in the evening when it is brightly lit. Very pleasant and extremely knowledgable and helpful staff. Pleasant rooms, updated bathrooms. Included breakfast was excellent with lots of choices. Coffee, tea and bicsuits available all the time and very early breakfast is available. (We had a quick one at 3 am.) Very reasonable rates. Would definitely return to this hotel.

"Great View"
This hotel is in a great location. It is really close to a Metro station, but more importantly, you walk around the corner, and there's Hadrian's Library and the beginning of a lot of the ruins. The view of the acropolis can't be beat. The hotel staff was also accommodating. I booked a single room in error, but it had a double bed, so they still let my husband and I stay in it. It had a great view and was quiet. The Internet really sucks, and they need some more routers, and breakfast is okay. They could use some more variety in fresh fruit, but it's a great place.

This hotel is amazing! It is literally in walking distance to most of the ruins, temples, museums, etc. Not only is it in walking distance from those things but in walking distance from all different kinds of resturaunts. We arrived super late into Athens and were starving from our 17hr flight. We had no map and no idea of where to go but the gentleman at the front desk told us the best place to go that wasn't expensive at all. That's the thing about Greece they are super friendly and there is something always open. There is also a street market like literally a block away for all your souvenir needs ;) enjoy this is a definite yes if your in Athens! Trust me!

"Unbeatable View"
My wife and I read about many places and restaurants in Athens that had great views of the acropolis and sunset and although we also still went to some of these, the view from the rooftop of the Plaka Hotel was the best! Moreover, it's convenient, not crowded and they serve drinks and reasonable prices. Besides the view, the hotel room was nice/clean with a good bathroom. Hotel staff were always helpful with any questions. Complimentary breakfast was very nice with lots of choices (they even serve most of it before their normal opening time in case you have an early flight). Location was perfect as we walked everywhere (nothing seemed to be more than a 25 minute walk with most things closer). If we didn't want to walk, the metro was just a few minutes away and taxis seemed plentiful.

This is the place to stay in Athens! Although its an older hotel and small (one person and one suitcase and the lift is full) I would recommend this place to anyone. The view from the roof at night is incredible, the service from the staff was impeccable, and although the room was not especially spacious it was clean. Spent part of my trip at another 5 star hotel in Athens - wish the whole trip had been spent at the Plaka.

"comfortable, quiet, convenient, helpful"
We liked this so much we came back a week later. Two blocks from metro, central in the city but quiet (did use ear plugs when I wanted to sleep in past 7 am as the church bells start to go off throughout the city), loved spending rest times and late nights on the roof enjoying the view of the acropolis and Hadrian's library, convenient shopping and eating, and the mini market next door was just too easy. The PR person came around during breakfast to offer help with your plans for the day, she was great at offering other sights to see in the area we were going as well as places to eat. We were delighted with the suggestions and encourage those that stay there to take advantage of her expertise. Breakfast was huge and plentiful offering typical Greek, German, French, British, and American favorite breakfast choices. The hotel was so quiet that one morning we arrived at breakfast to find it full so we knew that the hotel must be full but we sure didn't hear any of it. Likewise the breakfast was replenished so quickly that it too showed no signs of the group going through. If you are looking for comfortable beds, helpful staff, a good night sleep and a great view this is the place

"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.

"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.
