The location of this Hotel (just a block north of the Plaka, very close to Monastriaki METRO stop) is VERY good. Perfect for shopping, and half-way equidistant between the primary tourist destinations of the city--the Acropolis/Agora, and the National Archaeological Museum.
The staff at the hotel are wonderfully helpful, polite, and willing to assist with just about anything! AMAZING!!
The rooftop bar view literally can't be beat. Even from the Plaka, rooftop views are so-so of the main night-time draw--the Acropolis/Parthenon....because from the Plaka, you're too close, and often the view is obstructed by the hill of the Acropolis itself, or by trees. However, from one block back, at Hotel Attalos, and three floors up, the view is AMAZING! And you can bring up your own food--which means if you're on a budget, you can save a TON of money and buy your gyro on the street for 2 Euros instead of in a restaurant for 8 Euros...then head up to the rooftop, order a beer, and have your feast with the best view in town for less than you'd have spent on just a beer down in the Plaka!
Highly recommended! This is a mid-range hotel, not bare-bones and dirty like a hostel, not expensive and out of reach like a 4 or 5 star hotel.
Be sure to check out the local markets on the same street as the hotel, too..the meat, fish, spice, and fruit/vegi markets give you a view of local life that you just won't get if you stay only inside the Plaka. Load up on spices...you'll be glad you did when you get home!!
