We stayed for 2 nights for less than $200 USD total. This hotel is smack in the middle of old town, close to everything. Very comfy rooms, nice breakfast.
The VIEW: There's a small, cozy rooftop bar, with an INCREDIBLE, totally unobstructed view to the Acropolis. Even though it's on the 6th floor, there are NO buildings as tall as our hotel between us and the view. It is breathtaking. The hostess was very nice with us, recommending a very nice restaurant close by for our first night (let's face it, we were too jet lagged to venture too far). She recommended Tepina, which was just wonderful. They bake their small pita breads on the premises - yummy. Had the best octopus dish ever. She also recommended red wines from Nemea and we picked one up during the Athens Food Tour (which I also strongly recommend) to have on our cruise.
The only annoyance is that the WiFi did not work on our floor for most of our stay. We reported it twice, but to no avail. But it was working in other areas of the hotel, so ... Having said that, I will definitely be staying at the Plaka when we visit Athens again.
