We arrived in Athens after 9pm and we were dropped off by taxi just around the corner from the hotel. At first we were a little hesitant because the hotel seemed to be down an alley. Streets with a lot of grafitti..But once we entered the hotel we were warmly greeted by the receptionist and felt right at home. Our rooms were perfect, clean, and VERY comfortable. Breakfast included was fabulous! The hotel did offer internet at a reasonable price but seemed to have some complications logging off and being able to use the same code for a second visit therefore paying more than was necessary.
In the morning once we were able to check out the area and acclimate ourselves, we came to find out that the "alley" we were in had opened up with tons of shops. The hotel was in the absolute perfect location, walking distance to everything, shops and great restaraunts in the Plaka area. Also 5min to the main square along with many main tourist sights. Hotel roof top bar with perfect view of acropolis! The receptionist set us up with a half day tour of the city which was convenient since we were only in Athens for a day and a half.
We had a fabulous stay at the Plaka Hotel and would absolutely recommend to others visiting the area....and I already have!
