If you want clean and convenience, you can't go wrong here. The rooms are very basic but you don't go to Athens to sit in your room anyway! One downside is the showers. If you're a big person or elderly, you'll have problems. Other than the shower, I cannot think of anything negative. Especially for the money. You cannot pick a better location. Try to get a room with a view of the Accropolis. At night, you'll almost feel like you can touch it! Plenty of shopping, bars, and restaurants close by. Breakfast was included and a very nice way to start the day. I would definitely recommend Hotel Plaka!

The hotel is central, and our room had a great few of the Acropolis. Our room was large, clean and comfortable. Would recommend it to anyone. The hotel also has a nice rooftop bar.

The location is great, the rooms are average: no charm but clean. But be carefull with the staff: they try to rip you off whenever possible. I booked through Expedia but there was no way they would charge the agreed rate, ignoring the fact that I had the printed document in my hands. The management was indelicate, unpolite and very rude.
Also do not get a drink at the roof bar. Athough the view is great, the prices are incredibly high. Go check it out, bring your drink with you.

Hotel Plaka is in a great location near Monastariki Square and metro station and in the middle of the Plaka District of Athens. Everything we wanted to see was within walking distance. Clean room, good breakfast.

We were very satisfied with our stay here in May 2006. The room was of a good size and in very good shape. The view from our room was exceptional - a clear view towards the Acropolis. The bathroom was somewhat small, especially the bath which was of the sitting kind. Breakfast was excellent as well as the service from the staff. I had asked for a bottle of bubbly to be served on our arrival which was executed without a hitch. We would like very much to return some day.
