"Amazing staff and perfectly situated hotel"
We had a pleasurable stay at Plaka Hotel. The rooms were comfortable as were the beds. The hotel staff was second to none as far as service. We always felt taken care of and secure. The location is great, in the heart of shopping, restaurants and attractions. The breakfast buffet is amazing. I would stay here again upon returning to Athens.

"Perfect hotel, will book again"
Excellent hotel. Centrally located in Plaka, could walk to Acropolis, Parliament, 2 metro stations, shopping, dining etc. Hotel was clean and modern, had free wifi, and staff were always friendly and helpful. Had a delicious hot buffet breakfast, much more than I expected. I am returning to Athens in a few months, and will not hesitate to book this hotel again.

"Hotel in the heart of Athens"
Hotel in excellent location. Plenty of cafes and restaurants. Shopping is fantastic. Leather goods, fine jewelry and clothing all in walking distance from hotel. Hotel rooms clean and comfortable. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Breakfast in the hotel was excellent . The view of the Acropolis from the roof top lounge was breathtaking. Metro station also within walking distance of the Plaka. My family and I would definitely stay here again. Very happy.

"Ideal location"
Perfectly located in the Plaka and easy walking distance to all we wanted to see in Athens. The room was perfect and, as we upgraded (for only 20 euros),to have a view of the Parthenon, it was fabulous. The breakfast was generous and offered a wide variety for the international clientele. We would stay there again.

"Great Location"
The hotel is in a great location and is central to shopping and transportation to all areas. Cabs were inexpensive from the hotel. The breakfast was nice as well and was more than just pastries. My only complaint is the shower since you can't run the water on full blast or you will flood the small bathroom.

"Perfect location!"
Location is walkable to all of the central sights of Athens plus the Acropolis. Breakfast is plentiful with Greek & American items offered & replenished as necessary. Outstanding addition offered by this hotel is the every morning availability of a multilingual "hostess" to aid you in planning your day & answering your questions...very helpful & extremely cordial & personable. Elevator on site & the "on the rooftop lounging area" with an outstanding, not to be missed view of the Acropolis are superlative offerings. Room amenities are of high quality & GREAT shower facilities! Offering afternoon coffee or tea was a relaxing plus. Overall we were very pleased with our stay at Hotel Plaka and we would definitely select it again.

"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!
