Great location. So easy to get to from the airport by airport bus. Close to all we wanted to see.

I have nothing but praise for ththis hotel.As I travel on my own I am often rather worried before I get to a place ,but here there was no need to worry.The room was spotless, the hotel perfecly situated and the reception staff so helpful.What made it all the better was when I told the manageress that I was disappointed with the view she immediately said she was moving me to a room which was being vacated later that day.I did tell her that
iI was leaving next day, but that didn't matter.I had a great view of the Accropolis.How many hotels would do that for one night and for a single traveller.? I had a great stay in Athens and would highly recommend this hotel to everyone.

We just returned from a 2 night stay at the Plaka. We chose it for its central location and promised view of the Parthenon. We were not disappointed. What prompts me to write this review, however, was the personal attention we got from the manager after one of our wallets was stolen. She was not only concerned but made sure we were able to connect with the US bank to cancel the ATM. We thought we were calling collect; turns out it was a major toll call. The manager waived the charges, which was a welcome overture at a stressful time. The only minor criticism we have is the charge for the internet; while not expensive, everywhere else we travled offered WiFi for free.

Plaka hotel has a fantastic location for visiting all the important sights of Athens within walking distance, and after a long day walking around,- a nice warm bath,- and you do not have many meters to walk to find a nice restaurant in Plaka or Monastiraki. The staff was friendly and spoke english very well. The breakfast was fine - and surprice- the director of the hotel came round to the tables, answering and asking questions.
We are coming back in July 2011 and do not hesitate to take our daughter and grandchildren to Plaka hotel

My partner and I and my daughter and a family friend stayed at the Plaka Hotel in Athens recently. We found it to be good value for money, comfortable rooms and excellent food. Sundowner drinks on the rooftop while the Acropolis lights up is a wonderful experience.
Most importantly, it is within walking distance of all sight-seeing.

I stayed at the Plaka for two nights and was very pleased with the hotel. The Plaka Hotel is within very easy walking distance from both the Monostiraki and Syntagma metro stations. Our room (a triple) was clean and tidy, and the complimentary breakfast was wonderful. I found the staff very friendly and helpful, and the view from the rooftop (complete with bar!) is not to be believed. I'd like to give a special shout-out to Elsa, the lovely bartender who helped us with our Greek and mixed us many a cocktail.

I would definitely stay here again.
