“Great Location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2014

We have a small apartment next to this hotel. It is located in a very safe and quiet part of Plaka, within easy walking distance to all sites. We use this hotel for overflow guests. It is a simple hotel - the beds are comfortable - the rooms and bath are clean. The owner/manager is helpful and takes pride in providing a clean, comfortable hotel at a good price.

I suggest selecting two single beds for a couple - you will end up with more sleeping space

Smoking is allowed in the lobby area - so if smoke bothers you - this may not be a good choice
Make sure to specify non-smoking room

Quaint and quiet, safe in the Plaka, a Great location!--0.2 miles from Syntagma Square, 0.2 miles from the Acropolis walkway, 0.2 miles from the BEST cheese pies at Ariston Bakery, and a few miles from the National Museum. Everything within walking distance. Small, but comfortable and clean.

This is a small hotel, basic but clean and very reasonable sized rooms. Water was unfailingly hot and the towels changed everyday. It has all you need, as well as a large fridge in reception from which you can take bottles of water or canned drinks and pay at the reception desk. I particularly liked this thoughtful touch as I am always in need of water coming in or going out. It is about 7 minutes walk from the Metro at Syntagna Square ( Metro comes straight in from the airport ), at the same time you see the Acropolis above you as you walk up to the door. It is almost as near as you can get to picturesque Plaka and the sights ( the end of the street ). I also found the staff friendly and helpful when I wanted to know things. They also looked after my bags until I was ready to pick them up to go to the airport. This is a very convenient place to stay and I really recommend it.

We spent one night in the Hotel Nefeli in Sept 2013. This is a travelers hotel, its plain and simple but is very reasonably priced and is located in the heart of the Plaka. The hotel is on a side street, so its fairly quiet, and clean with everything you need including breakfast. We caught a late flight out of Athens and had to check out of our room, but the hotel happily watched our bags during the day so we could see the town without lugging them around. It was a short 4 block walk to the city subway out to the airport. This was good find at a great value.

Nefeli is a small hotel, very good location close to the Acropolis and Plaka. Very friendly staff, 24 hours/day. Rooms are not big but more than sufficient; the place is quiet and, hot water all day. Very good value for money.

Great budget hotel in Plaka, especially for backpackers. It's walking distance from the Metro, Syntagma Square, and Monastraki. Breakfast is included. I would definitely recommend it if you are on a budget.

This hotel is within walking distance of all major attractions. The acropolis is at most a 10 minute walk. Plaka restaurants and shopping less than 5 minutes. Going into area it may seem a bit run down, but very safe area, even after dark. The hotel is small but makes up for it in great customer service. Breakfast is good and the coffee out of this world. Nice to have a cooler in lobby stocked with water, soda, and beer for a nominal price. Rooms are small but who is in room for more than sleeping anyway. Showers are pretty small also and as a larger guy a bit tight but doable. Maid service top notch. Only issue was with air conditioner, after about a hour of being on it starts to drip water into room and had to put towels down to mop floor. I'm sure staff would have taken care of it if we said anything but didn't. Would stay here and recommend for sure.
