I chose this hotel with great expectation. But It was average. Location is great. As its name reveals, it's at the center of Plaka. So it's close to main attractions.
Staff wasn't so warm. They replied to all questions with one word answers :) No suggestions or extra info, but we don't mind...
Room was OK. We didn't have a nice view from balcony. Upper, Acropolis side rooms may have.
Free wi-fi was surprise for me because it was said to be paid. But it somehow did not worked well. Maybe my phone's problem.
Breakfast was good. But restaurant was a bit small.
And of course, the roof. It has a wonderful view of Acropolis at night. Because of the season it was deserted. Just took pictures.
Only real problem was the noise in the morning from the busy Mitropoleos street.
