“Amazing view of acropolis. Great service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2013 via mobile

We stayed here twice, once for 5 nights with an amazing view of the acropolis (4th floor). The room was a bit small, but upon returning for one night we were given the room opposite our previous room. This disnt have a good view and was a lot noisier, but the room was almost double the size.

The breakfast was great and there was tea and coffee facilities available throughout the day (for free).

The service was fantastic, you could wash a bag of clothes for 9 euro, which would cost immensely more elsewhere, returned in 24 hours.

We had to get a doctor at short notice and extend our stay for 2 days, both which were possible and easily done, which really helped a stressful situation.

Wifi is available in the rooms, but costs 1€ an hour with 2 free hours upon arrival.

We had a room on mid floor with balcony which has a view of Acropolis. It was nice and clean. Love the location! We saw other hotels as we walked but for some reasons, I love Plaka Hotel more. Staff was very friendly (even the maids) except for one person behind the desk who didn't seem to have patience for our ignorant questions regarding travelling by taxis, we only see him in the evenings.

The breakfast was good. Complimentary morning and afternoon beverage is a bonus. Love the rooftop!

Just returned from a fantastic stay in The Plaka Hotel, a small hotel with a fantastic location, just a few minutes walk from The Acropolis, Monastiraki and many other fantastic places. We had a family connecting room, which although the rooms are not over spacious, provides ample space. The room was spotless and tastefully decorated. The hotel just felt very friendly, welcoming and was child friendly.
Athens itself was a joy and not at all how recently portrayed. We used the metro a few times which was easy to navigate, clean and not over busy.
Overall a fantastic hotel in an amazing city.

We stayed at the Plaka Hotel in January; I last stayed there many years ago before the renovation. The hotel has been tastefully upgraded and is very clean, comfortable and pleasant. The staff were extremely helpful and when I had to make a late cancellation for my sister, due to sudden ill health, the hotel administrators were helpful and understanding and even waived the cancellation fee. We particularly liked the way hotel staff greeted guests at breakfast and gave them ideas on where to go and what to do and what transport to take. We were also happy to find a very good barber/hairdresser right next door - highly recommended and reasonable priced. It was easy to walk up to the Acropolis, Flea Market and Ancient Agora from the hotel and there were many good restaurants nearby. Also a good area to catch taxis and a short walk to the Metro. We got an off peak special deal for sixty five euros per night, which was very reasonable. I would definitely recommend this hotel as a nice place to spend three to five nights while exploring Athens.

Room Tip: For a bit more you can request a room with a view of the Acropolis, but all rooms are nice.

For three nights or for three weeks, the Plaka Hotel is a a fabulous Athenian base from which to explore both ancient and modern Athens - and beyond. (For example, the staff can organise trips to Delphi, Sounion and the islands on your behalf.) Having had such a wonderful first experience here in this hotel in April 2011 it was an easy decision to come and stay here again. To date, I have booked into this hotel 4 times and will continue to use it as my 'home away from home' when in Athens. With their welcoming, familiar faces and their professional services, all the hotel staff made me feel at home (important when travelling alone and far from family and friends). I can thoroughly recommend the Plaka Hotel and its amenities to anybody visiting Athens (either alone or with others) for business, pleasure, or both. I will be back again and again and again.....

I have no complaints about this hotel. The location was perfect. We almost never took the metro (except for when we were super tired and it was raining). The view from the top of the building is great (it rained, so we couldn't really take advantage of it). The breakfasts were tasty! Especially nice was the greek yogurt and honey. I found everything I would want at breakfast. It was the perfect way to start the day. The staff was friendly, especially the communications person that came by at breakfast to ask how we were doing and give us tips on where to go. Overall, I had a really great stay!
