Perfect location away from noise but close to everything. Between Syntagma square and Adranou madness! Katerina at reception delightful to come'home' to, all staff friendly and helpful. Air con and shower great. Rooftop view of Parthenon a bonus. Try Paradisaio taverna in polonas street toward Niki's for authentic Greek food. Clean, safe and comfortable. No lift (3 floors).

Room Tip: We had 10, it was quiet but no view. In august heat it stayed cool. Up two flights of narrow stairs...

I stayed there in August 2013 overall 4 days, 2 days from my trup start and 2 days by the end of my trip. The owner, Greg Armatas, was a very nice person and very attentive, the other workers were also good, but Greg was always happy and willing to help :)
Location is great!!!!!!! it is some 5 minutes walk from Syntagma square from where you can walk just onto the parlaiment and see the guard shift ceremony....
some 20 minutes AMUSING walk through the restauarants, souvenir shops up to the Acropolis!!!!
if you like tyo walk then walk some 30 minutes to the Lycobbitus hil (my favourite place) an amazing place!!! yu can go there both during the day but it is hot, or during the night.... in both cases you can see Athens in all its beauty.....
i didn`t make to go other sights... but if you stay long you are just in the centre to choose among many many sights around....
yes, one more thing - from your roof you can see the acropolis a hand away)))....
As soon as it is 00.00 am you can hear absolutely no noise from outside but before 00.00 am you can hear only Greek lovely a bit noisy music... that`s it!!!!
Rooms are clean, very well equipped with conditioner, if you are not into luxury stay there becasue the most important is to have a room clean, knit, with cold/hot water and great location!!!!!
Sincerely,
Sona

We were only passing through Athens so chose Plaka for convenience. How convenient it was!!! 10min walk to the Acropolis, new museum (a must) etc. through bustling store lined streets. So many restaurants to choose from. It's very cheap so for a short stay, put up with tiny, tiny bathroom..the rooms are perfectly clean (latex mattress was comfy but a bit hot at this time of year) and the staff very friendly and helpful.

Helpful staff, nice bedroom, great location. Free wi-fi and a big TV. What else to ask for? From terrace there is an astonishing Acropolis view. No escalator but that wasn't a problem. Eco friendly as well. I recommend it for families, shopping and cultural tourism.

We booked a Family Suite with Acropolis View for 2 nights. Our room was # 16 on the 3rd floor;
Great sized suite - 2 rooms, kitchenette , good aircon and an outside deck ( that is for all guests) that had a great view of the Acropolis.
The stairs were a killer but we knew that and we had a lot of luggage - the reception guy was very helpful in assisting.
We have stayed in the Plaka before at Electra Palace but I preferred this location more.
Not far to walk to the Acropolis.
All in all really pleased with location and price.

Yeah, the missing elevator is the bad part. We stayed in room 15, on the top floor, by the terrace, and going up the stairs with luggage is not always nice and easy. The room was very good and spacious, good wifi, and sleeping quality. The staff was very nice and the location is ideal for sightseeing, shopping and nightlife. We would choose it again I think.

This was a very friendly little hotel with the staff being friendly and welcoming, I really liked the breakfast on the roof looking at the Acropolis, although it was even better in the evening when the lights came on to light up the hill and monument. Because the hotel is in the side roads you get to see the small shops and locals instead of seeing the tourists which was great to get into the atmosphere of Athens. Walking about meant exploring which was ideal and the reception were happy to give ideas of where to go to see the best things in a short-time. The hotel is situated about 10-15 minute walk from the metro line which takes about 45 minutes to get to the airport. The parliament is situated about another 5 minutes walk away so when I was there it was interesting because of the disturbances regarding Greece and the financial situation.....Overall, although the room was small it served its purpose ideally as I was a solo traveller at the time; the bed was comfortable and the room was clean and tidy. For a single traveller or a couple this is a very good hotel to stay at if you want to get out of the main big hotels and just see the city in its raw state with all the main tourists attractions within easy walking distance. I would certainly go back there again in the future.....
