Hotel Options near Platka and the Acropolis

We are staying 4 nights in Athens starting Aug 19 2014. We have booked with a travel agency who has given us several options on hotels. We would like to a Hotel near Platka and the Acropolis. We also would like something with the old world charm versus a new modern hotel.

We have tentatively booked at the Airotel Stratos Vassilikos which includes breakfast but are also look at the following:

Divani Palace - no breakfast

Hera Hotel - includes breakfast

Herodion Hotel - includes breakfast

Any recommendations on our tentative hotel as well as the 3 others listed would be appreciated.

Hey and welcome Classycouple422:-) No reason to go through a travel agent.. you can book directly with any hotel you choose;-) FWIW, the Hera and Herodian have good locales.. if you mean the 'Akropolis' Divani Palace, yes, it too is in a great location (but take note that Divani has a couple of properties) .. there are loads of options out there as well! If you provide a budget spread, am sure you'll get lots of great rec's in area;-)

In the meantime, you can read reviews on these by simply plugging in the property name up in the Search Box here.. top off this page.. right hand side.. loads of pics too;-) May help you decide;-) Best.. and EnJOY!

EDIT: Forgot to say, it's *Plaka*.. not Platka:-)

We've stayed at the Herodion and can highly recommend: lovely roof-top terrace with fabulous views of the acropolis, great location at foot of acropolis and literally next door to the new acropolis museum. However, Herodion has a modern zen feel to it, not necessarily old world charm.

Hi. We have booked an apartment overlooking the Acropolis via Only Apartments - reviews were good - so might be something different to try...it wasn't any dearer than a hotel...cheaper I think.
