You can't beat the location. It is in Plaka district, walking distance to shopping, sites and nightlife. Most of the rooms are decent size but some are on the small side so if you want more space just ask for a larger room. The hotel...More
The hotel is located right in the Plaka, which made it very convenient - I would come few times a day on my way to attractions, to change, leave items I bought in the room, etc. It is less than 5 min walk from the...More

My husband and I have stayed here for two years now and love this hotel. Marianna and the staff are always so friendly and helpful. The location can't be beat and the room with the view of the Acropolis never ceases to amaze. Our stay...More

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.
