“Good Location terrace bar with view”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

You can not go wrong here. Had a nice room. Came after being on the Windstar cruise. Go to the bar on the top floor with a magnificent view of the Acropolis . Go at sunset when the sun is setting on the beautiful acropolis .
The only down fall was the coffee in the morning. Instant. The breakfast was good. Great location for walking into the plaka. Lots of good restraunt choices. They moved the Starbucks from the last time we were there. Now it is across the street from the hotel about a 1/4 mile. New location with a 2story. Good coffee there.

Stayed August 2013, travelled as a couple

Myself and my wife stayed one night at the Plaka and overall had a very enjoyable time. The rooftop bar with its impressive view of the Acropolis clearly the best feature and one of the best views in the city. The rooms were clean yet small with comfortable beds. Noise does travel between rooms, and not only between the walls but through the bathroom vents (pointed out by a neighbour who could hear us talking whilst showering... Awkward...).
The service was well above par with forgotten luggage couriered to our next destination by very sympathetic staff - a massive positive.
Position is right amongst some good eating, good shopping markets aswell and only a 15 min walk / trek to the acropolis.
Overall a very nice stay.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your title and your review.
We are very glad that once again Plaka Hotel could prove the very high service that we provide to our valuable guests. We are pleased your luggage arrived on time.
As for your comment on the bathroom connection, it is true that some are connected through ventilation system, but we rarely have negative comments, as this is a building matter that can not be changed easily. It is also nice to read that you as well, enjoyed the imressive view we offer from our roof top of the Acropolis.
Hope to see you again on a future trip.
Best regards

I stayed there with my two young boys (3&6) for 2 nights in room 507. The room is not very big but we didn't spend a lot of time in it. The bathroom was clean and modern with bathtub and shower. Wifi connection was ok and free. This triple room doesn't have a view of the acropolis. Don't judge the hotel from the outside. Inside its much better. The breakfast is on the ground floor where the PR came around every morning asking and suggesting different activities to do during the day. The view of the acropolis from the terrace is stunning. You can sit there and order drinks. We went there every night just before turning in. The hotel is located about a 10 minute walk from the New Acropolis museum and 15 from the Acropolis. Monastiraki underground stop is 200 minutes from the hotel. From there you are 40 minutes away from the airport or 30 from Piraeus. Great value for money if you are not looking for something fancy.

Lovely hotel right in the center of Athens which is great. Good service which includes a lady that comes round every day at breakfast to sort out problems, see to requests etc. Nice breakfast and a fantastic rooftop bar which has a stunning view over Athens. Recommended

The location is excellent, close to the metro and shopping strips. The markets are close by and there is a great view of acropolis at night. Good breakfast and internet is excellent. Great cleaning staff who cleaned our rooms even when we didn't leave until late in the afternoon.

We stayed in this hotel for one night in mid August. The hotel is clean, fairly modern and is situated in the heart of Plaka district - minutes away from the Acropolis, Parliament building and other attractions. Rooms are decent size and have spacious modern bathrooms. The hotel serves excellent hot breakfast in the morning on the second floor. The concierge and other staff is very polite and helpful. Do not miss a rooftop bar with amazing view of the Acropolis!
