Family hotel with very nice owners and service, nice room with all you expect from a hotel today. The hotel has a very large terrace where you can take your breakfast with a nice view direction downtown. Not directly in town but only 5 minutes’ walk to downtown where you have same nice bars and restaurants.

I have come here three or four times since my last review and it is still as good as ever. The hotel with its excellent wide stone shower area, proper working WiFi and large rooms, still only has six working rooms rooms though it could have 41 rooms!! Why is the usual Greek 'dispute' with someone. For me, I do...

The Akraion is located in Melissia, a northeastern suburb of Athens. Near enough to the airport to avoid the really expensive taxi ride from downtown Athens. It is a quiet, well appointed hotel. Recently renovated, my wife and I enjoyed a couple of very pleasant days staying here. Christos and Lambros were extremely pleasant and helpful. Their English is excellent....

On the 4 & 5 March 2014, my wife and I spent a couple of peaceful nights in a small hotel near my mother-in-laws in the North of Athens on the road to Penteli mountain. Even though the hotel was half closed the rooms were excellent and the reception staff helpful. I will be returning April for Easter and will...

We followed on from Laura (see earlier reviewe) to visit our grandchild who had contacted swinte flu. We cannot speak highly enough of the friendly welcome that we had and the great personal attention that we received. Our room was on the ground floor and more than adequate and very comfortable. The view over Athens from the terrace is spectacular...

I hate to disagree with Mr DavidAram, but the Hotel Akraion I stayed in bore no resemblance to the one described in his review. One can only assume he'd got the name wrong or he was a man with a grudge!! I was in Athens, supporting a mate who's daughter had swine flu and I can only say that the...

I hate to disagree with Mr Russell Green but this was simply one of the worst hotels in which I have stayed. More like a bereft old Eastern bloc orphanage than a venue with customer service in mind.

A hidden gem with some great views and wonderful new bedrooms on the ground floor. Stayed there during a business trip and was collected and dropped off so no problems but it is a little off the beaten track if you have no car and it is not very close to touristy stuff or metro. The lounge is very chic...

Staying in Plaka

Neighbourhood Profile
Plaka
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.
