We spent two lovely nights here. Our room was on the 5th floor and very comfortable and clean with free wifi. The staff were very attentive and helpful. They offer a nice included breakfast buffet. There are no other dining services, but there are a multitude of cafes and restaurants in close proximity. It is close to the metro station and the hop-on-hop-off bus, as well as the Roman Bazaar and flea-market. What makes this place so special is the roof-top terrace that overlooks the Acropolis, which is open for bar service in the evening. The terrace has a casual atmosphere, and the bartender, Elsa, was extremely pleasant. This is not a high-end bar service, with expensive brands, but it is also not stuffy. We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and meeting many other travelers there. After our stay, we moved to another hotel to join a tour group, and wished we were back at the Plaka. In fact, we took a cab back there one evening for a last chance to sit on the terrace and enjoy the most amazing view of the Acropolis. Elsa remembered us, and our drink preferences! If I were to return to Athens, I would definitely, stay here.
