    Perfect location to start exploring the city. The wonderful view from the roofgarden.

    Very small room, thin walls, our shower cabin and the toilet sink leaked.

    Location

    We did not get a double bed first time, but did the second.

  • Couple
    8.8

    Plaka has an excellent location in the old town of Athens. It is clean, quiet at night and comfortable, and though it won't win any design awards, it was spacious and does represent great value for money. The hotel had been recently refurbished with good results. The roof terrace was closed for refurbishment, unfortunately, but will no doubt look great when it is done. Decent breakfast, internet access.

    The room had a fridge, but no content - a minibar would be nice. A couple of chairs on the balcony would also be good.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    The location, the price and the cleanliness. Also, breakfast was quite varied.

    They charged my credit card more than a month in advance, not at the time of departure, as it was supposed.

  • Single
    9.2

    Staff very friendly, competent and helpful; breakfast good. Very well kept and clean rooms offer enough space. The views from the roof terrace to Akropolis, Lykabettos and over Athens are spectacular. From some rooms on 5th and 6th floor you can even see the Akropolis at day and night through your room window. Very comfortably situated to Metro station Monastiraki, within the heart of the Plaka and near to Psirry. A place to remember and come back to.

  • Family with children

    Great location and the rooms, they were fantastic, clean and modern!

  • Single
    8.2

    Excellent location, with a view of the Acropolis, near a nice square with restaurants etc. Hotel is also very nice and up to date, except for some of the bathrooms, see complaints. Make sure you get one of the better bathrooms and the hotel is excellent.

    Apparently there are a number of rooms where everything except for the bathroom has been renovated, which means you have a 1970's very small and very uncomfortable bathroom, where it is an undertaking to get into the shower, more suited for backpackers actually.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    The view of the Acropolis from our room was stunning and we were welcomed with a glass of wine. The hotel was very clean and modern and in an excellent location near to restaurants, shops and the ancient sights. Would certainly stay at this hotel again.The staff were excellent and extremely helpful.

  • Couple
    7.0

    The reason I chose this hotel is because it provides the room with view of Acropoli and it does. You can see Acropoli whenever you open your eyes. To sleep 'with' Acropoli is truly an experience which I would never forget. There is also a public place on the top floor which provides this view but I guess it would be quite crowded in the summer.

    The price is a little bit high. The breakfast is good but can be improved according to this price.
