My group stayed at the Plaka Hotel for two nights prior to our cruise. I chose the hotel after reading many awesome reviews from TripAdvisor, but was initially disappointed with the hotel after arriving and walking into a small and underwhelming lobby. The location and rooftop view are the attraction for the hotel because the rooms and amenities are very average. I would classify this hotel as a value hotel. Our stay was not unpleasant, as the location is the best and time spent up on the roof was unbeatable, but the rooms are plain and very basic. Breakfast was included and we enjoyed the variety they offered. But, as another review mentions the sewer smell was unpleasant but manageable when the bathroom door remained closed. Oh, and be prepared, the elevator is extremely small as elevators are in older buildings. After the luggage made it up, I used the stairs after that. However, I would stay here again, but if you are particular about hotel room amenities this is not the hotel for you.
