This is a nice hotel, overall, and not too expensive for Plaka. It's not luxury, but it has what you need. It's attractive, perfectly located, and staff (ESPECIALLY the desk clerk who worked in the evenings/night) was friendly and always helpful.
Pros: Absolutely perfect location, walking distance to major sites-acropolis, ancient and roman agoras, national archeological museum, private balcony w/table and chairs, great acropolis view (from my room, anyway), friendly and helpful desk staff, A/C, hotel is clean, room had a wardrobe and plenty of drawers.
Cons: Bed is hard and you will feel some springs, room is tiny (which I didn't mind at all, but might be considered a con).
Overall-recommended, unless you really need a cushy bed!
