“Great service, management, location!”
Reviewed 22 April 2011

We stayed at the hotel for 5 days. The location was very good, with metro stations, shopping and restaurants nearby. Unfortunately, my daughter was suck we arrived, but the staff, management were wonderful! They really accommodated our needs, change in plans! You won not be disappointed with their service or location. It is probably the #1 three star facility in that area. Both Syntagma and Metereopolous station are main metro stations to go on tours, etc. The roof has a spectacular view, even though very few rooms probably have view of Acropolis, due to another building next doors. Breakfast is included, but perhaps they can change the menu a bit each day for at least some variety, even though they have several choices.

We really enjoyed our stay here!

We booked a room with and view of the Acropolis and we were not dissapointed. It's position is ideal for exploring Athen's Plaka and within walking distance of Acropolis and New Acropolis Museum.

We stayed here for one night en-route to Skiathos. We have stayed in many Athens hotels over the years but always tend to eat in the Plaka area. We decided to give this hotel a try. It is very good indeed for the three star rating. It has a wonderful location both for the metro link and for the best of what Athens has to offer. The room was perfectly adequate and spotlessly clean. The beds were comfortable and the minimalist, unfussy decor all contributed to a comfortable night's sleep. Yes, the bathroom was tiny but more than up to the job and the shower was excellent with plenty of toiletries and wonderful fluffy ,luxurious towels.The breakfast was terrific - the restaurant beautifully clean ,light and airy. I had one of the most leisurely breakfasts ever. The clearing of the tables was done efficiently and discreetly by some of the neatest staff I have seen in any hotel. The manager was a delight and deserves all the praise that is heaped on her. Her attention to her guests and warm welcome is not false or hurried and she obviously takes great pride in what she has achieved with her team. We were very kindly given an extension on check-out to facilitate a later flight. If only all hotels had their eye on the ball like this one - the world would be a better place to travel in! We'll definitely be back if you will have us. 'Kalo Pascha' from Skiathos xx

We had expected a good stay from the reviews but Hotel Plaka exceeded our hopes. Very cordial and helpful staff . We choose a room with balcony rather than one with Acropolis view. Breakfast was good specially the Greek section with the creamy Greek youghurt and salad with feta cheese. Loved the Breakfast rooms location overlooking the street and the tea \ coffee available all day with a big jar of cookies ! A guest relations team chatted with guests and answered all queries and gave helpful tips and suggestions -- a unique feature of this hotel. Location was perfect , 1 minutes walk to Monastiraki Metro , 10 minutes to Acropolis and a stones throw from Ermou St. Loved listening to the music coming from the street musicians playing around the small church in Ermou.
The night view of Acropolis from the hotel terrace was really WOW and inspite of the chill in early April , some of us would sit and admire the gorgeous sight along with the Lycabettus Hill view. Baggage storage facility , late checkout , complimentary 30 minutes internet were highly appreciated. Thanks Hotel Plaka management for our best hotel experiance in Europe !!

Great praise all round for this 3 star hotel but in particular I would mention it's location very near Monastiraki Square (a main hub of Athens) with a direct metro link to the airport and the added value given by the charming staff with unbiased planning of your time in Athens. In our stay there were always two knowledgeable staff members around at breakfast time to provide a PR service which I have never found before in a hotel at this price level.

Oh, and the roof terrace has a panoramic view of the acropolis.

Stayed 4 nights. Room was clean. Great location. Included breakfast. Staff was friendly and very helpful. And the manager spoke with everyone at breakfast to offer any help. Has to pay for wifi....but was very reasonable. Nice views from top of the hotel also.

My friend and I chose to stay at this hotel based off the reviews on this site and we were not disappointed. We had a very comfortable and clean room. The staff was wonderful and very attentive. The breakfast that was included was great, so much variety. I loved that they came around to each table and asked if we needed help with our plans that day. When you are in a strange country, that little bit of personal attention means so much. We were able to head out to our day feeling confident about where we were going and what we were planning to do. I just loved the little souvenir kitchen towel they gave us. It seems like a small thing but it was a very sweet gesture. Also we had to catch a very early flight home. They gave us a wake-up call in the morning and offered a snack before we left, this was at 3:00 in the morning. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and if I am fortunate enough to return to Athens I will definitely stay there again.
