It was central and enabled us to access historic sights, shopping and delightfule eating. all good
3 minute walk to the metro station and a 5 minute walk to the center
The staff is excellent, and the location is very good. The bathroom is to small.
Close to airport metro link. Rooftop Bar
Leaving The location. We did not like Athens City at all.
The area was very near the city center with a great view of the Acropolis. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Room was on the small side and the breakfast was mediocre at best. Avoid the charge and eat out. Plenty of good places nearby.
location, clean, balcony with view over the Acropolis, roof terrace, discount for parking
friendliness of front of house staff. cleaners and breakfast room girl Lack of window screens - thus mosquitos! Shower curtains sticks to us when showering Fridge not cold enough for the contents would be lovely to have medzes offered - even a dip/biscuits on roof - better to eat a little when consuming alcohol!
Staff was very helpfull and location was great. It needs to be renovated. Room was too small and all furnitures were very old. I had a view of the wall of the next building.
only a 2min walk from the metro. Fabulous view from the rooftop garden/bar of the acropolis. basic but clean and convenient
We stayed only for one night to discover Athens. The hotel's location is great. Nice restaurants are around, city center and metro is very close and easy to reach when you walk. The rooftop bar has a amaizing view to the achropolis!
Roof top patio/bar with excellant view of Acropolis makes staying here a must. This was our 5th visit. Helpful staff, free internet, and convenient location are also major pluses.
Rooms were comfortable. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent with lots of selections. The rooftop bar had stunning views of the acropolis. The location was PERFECT! Walking distance to everything you need to see! A little mold in the shower.
Great view of the Acropolis from the rooftop bar! Only bummer was that the hot tub is not open during the winter.
Proximity to museum and plaka Internet didn't work TV cable news etc a joke.... The bed a single hard uncomfortable plank Everything for 120$??
Close to trains and Plaka Staff were not kind nor attentive
The hotel staff were very helpful and friendly, warm and welcoming. The rooms were stylish and comfortable. Beautiful view from rooftop.
The hotel was new, and extreemly clean. Rooms are small, but its all you need! The staff were friendly and helpful. Location was great, just enough out of town to be quiet, but we could walk everywhere we wanted to go. Highly recommended! being new not many taxi drivers new the hotel, if you ask to be dropped at the food market they usually know where you are talking about
Price / Benefit balance was so well. This hotel has a so good location at the centre of Athens and you could walk to everywhere that is touristical. I and my friend travelled with metro only one station every tour. It has a good panoromic view with Parthenon on the roof. Internet connection is available, rapid and free of problems. Bath and room are narrow for 2 person but there was advantage related with this that you could find everything your nearest :) Unfortunately, there isn't parking.
As usual, staff was very friendly and responsive to requests. Excellent breakfast, comfy and very clean rooms.
I liked most the perfect location within the city center - not far away from Metro station and from ancient places. And - the hotel is very nice and clean. On the first impression the area does not look very attractive or even "dangerous" but even during night there is no harm => just go for it.
Great staff & facilities. Good location This hotel was a great price with all the facilities you need for a great stay in central Athens.
Very nice and comfortable room + bathroom. Very clean. Very good breakfast. Excellent wi-fi internet connection. Very convenient location. Everything was perfect.
The view from roof terrace is fantastic. The Acropolis view rooms also extremely good. Hotel is clean and well equipped, with pleasant staff. Breakfast is very good. We booked a twin room, specifically asked for two beds on booking form, but were given a double for the first night and had to change next day.
The hotel provided excellent service at a great price. Located in Monastiraki with the Plaka nearby it was an easy stroll to the Acropolis. Beds were excellent as was the breakfast. The hotel provided coffee & tea facilities in the lounge area but would have loved a kettle & mugs in the room. This is really not a complaint just a desire.
It was a boutique hotel which is very smart and lives up to the photos. The immediate location is not so good though. The immediate vicinity of the hotel is not great (ie next to the food market square) however it is only a 10 minute walk to the tourist centre
Very friendly and helpful staff. We stayed in one of the suites on the 8th floor - it had a great bathroom and lovely balcony, which we could watch the nightlife from. There is a great rooftop with an amazing 270 degree view of the city including the acropolis. Fantastic for watching the sunset. Breakfast was really nice. It is a about a 5 min walk to the nice, touristy part of town. It is just on the outskirts of the nice part of Athens, but still very safe. The price and location are fantastic. The elevator seem to take a long time.
The staff are extremely helpful and accommodating to ensure you are safe, find your way around and connect to the right resources. The location is a little noisy with market shouters and men milling about but luckily no traffic noise. Feel the threat of pickpockets in the area, but I didn't have a bad experience.
The location was excellent. The roof garden was nice for relaxing and the breakfast was great although the staff would walk right by you and never speak, The check in staff were welcoming and very helpful with directions. It was all good. It is now on my list of reccomended places
The location is phantastic: right in the heart of the old town. The outdoor bar on the roof has a breath taking view on the Acropolis - day and night! There is no other building in the way! The room was clean and fulfilled our expectations. Our room was a bit noisy due to the fact that the windows could not be closed properly. For an international hotel there where very view TV channels not in Greek.
This is a respectable hotel, that gives good basic services to it's guests. It's overall advantage is it's location. Stay at Plaka Hotel and all of Athens is easily available to you. I have nothing to complain about.
The terrace has a beautiful view of the Acropolis and the location is very close to restaurants, bars, and other places you would like to see and visit.
The roof top area is brilliant and the views over the Acropolis stunning. Easy to get to agora, shops and eating places. Bathroom/shower room was a bit small. The lift doors were too quick.
Location was excellent - near Acropolis with a great view of the Parthenon from the roof bar, staff were friendly, the room was basic but big enough for 3, the breakfast was good and the hotel manager personally canvassed the breakfast room. Traffic noise on the lower floors was noticeble starting early
Location, location, location. Plaka is located close to many main Athens attractions and transportation options.
The friendliness of the staff and how helpful they were all the time; they gave us tips to move around and help us to keep our luggage even when we've already checked out. The hotel is well located with many important places (most-visited historic attractions) at walking distance; also great was having a convenient small market next door where we could get fruits, beverages, baked goods, etc. The breakfast were very good, as well as the views from the roof lounge. The maze of streets – if you're driving a car there, it is hard to park and easy to get lost in the many one-direction streets.
Rooftop terrace view and Elsa our bartender. Efharisto!!!
clean, quiet, good beds, staff were sooooooooo friendly, soooooo helpful, roof top bar/lounging area was so quiet and romantic, looking right at the acropolis. hotel right in the old town of Athens, the ancient agora. been to Athens many times, 2nd time at Plaka Hotel, will only stay there from now on. nothing
Location was excellent for visiting all major sights on foot. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice.
Location, roof garden views, breakfast. Very soft beds, could not control room temperature,
The hotel is absolutely beautiful, from the stylish modern lobby to the sleek, well-appointed rooms. We were on our honeymoon and the staff went out of their way to make it special. They upgraded us to a suite with a view of the Acropolis and sent us welcome drinks and snacks. They also recommended a fabulous restaurant (Dionysus) and made us a reservation for a beautiful table. There was a lovely breakfast buffet included in the price of the room and we enjoyed eating at the hotel restaurant and having drinks at the intimate on-site bar. Overall, this was an excellent experience and we would absolutely stay there again. We didn't want to leave!
Location Friendly staff
neighborhood, breakfast, bathroom+ price Security questionable.
great hotel but district scruffy. Lovely manager
The position is ideal for bus and metro, being walking distance from Monasteraki and Omonia. The rooms are clean. The price for a single room is very reasonable, and the staff are helpful. I stay here whenever I need to spend a night in Athens. I'm not too happy about the pigeons walking around the breakfast tables!
Very near to the center of Athens
Convenient location to Omnia Metro, Central Market, shops, cafes. Pleasant hotel interior, facilities, breakfast. Helpful reception staff. Colourful district both day and night. Good cafe on corner used by locals, no choice of menu just barbecued meats, greek salad and bread. View of derelict building opposite.
Très bien placé : à 5 minutes de la station de métro Monastiraki donc à proximité des grands coins touristiques (Acropole, Place Syntagma, à 15min du Pirée,...). Petit déjeuners très agréables et copieux de plus avec produits frais (yaourt grec, fruits, fromages et charcuteries) seul bémol : pas de jus de fruits frais ! Roof top et terrasse du restaurant donnant sur l'Acropole : excellent !!! Confort des chambres mais salle de bain exiguë ! Personnel à l'écoute et très serviable, communication facile en anglais !!! Très bon hôtel !!! Nous y sommes restés 7 jours ! Pas de jus de fruits frais, salle de bain exiguë
clean, looked fresh painted, good value for money. central position in the city it s not the hotel s fault, but of the region. lots of immigrants there from middle east, pakistan etc. better go to hotel from right side as u look at the front door of the hotel from outside, than from the left side.
de tudo = of everything ( but one or 2 blocks on the streets are full of men at night but it was ok)
I really enjoyed my stay there. The staff was so helpful, they gave me a map along with indications when I asked them what to visit. All sites very close, within walking distance. The rooms are very clean + free wi-fi!
Helpful staff. Convenient location for walking to Omnia Metro, Central Market, Shops, Cafes. Colourful atmosphere surrounding the hotel including lots of shops for clothes, shoes etc run by Chinese, open late. Night time the street was lively with comings and goings of colourful characters. Cafe on the corner was excellent value (no menu) one barbecue meat dish only, locals ate there. View of the derelict building opposite.
Price, Food too noisy
Definitely the location, cleanliness, and breakfast buffet.
We stayed for 5 nights as part of a wedding party and found that the hotel was ideally situated for sightseeing, shopping, restaurants,etc., All in all enjoyed our stay and found that it was excellent value for money for city centre hotel. Everything was close by, including metro and restaurants (just outside front door) and the breakfast served on the roof terrace was always one of the highlights of the day made better by the company we were in. Thoroughly enjoyed it!!!
Excellent stay. A room with superb view.
Lovely view of Acropolis from my window/balcony.
Breakfast at the terrace and the location are fantastic. The staff is super kind and helpful. Shower too small, but I knew before I got there so it was not a surprise.
Excellent location - proximity to sights and tours. Great roof top breakfast facilities. Unpleasant odour in bathroom, air conditioner didn't work
location. lovely rooftop terrace for breakfast not really ,although bath/shower was very small
The roof restaurant where you can have a good view of the Acropolis is perfect!! Everything is perfect, although it is expensive, it worths.
excellent location bathrooms need updating/replacing
This place had a nice "local" vibe. The staff was super helpful and accommodating. They were more than happy to point out good places to eat and places to see. We checked in very late, around 10 pm, which the staff accommodated. The hotel lobby is really nice. Our room was located off the rooftop balcony (which has a view of the Acropolis) It was the quietest place we stayed on our two week trip. The room was good sized, the bed comfortable, and everything was clean. The bathroom was about average for size compared to other places we stayed. There was a kitchenette in the room. The rooftop sitting area was really nice. There was not breakfast included in the price of the room. However, a delicious, reasonably priced breakfast is available. The fresh squeezed orange juice was fantastic. It was probably the second best breakfast of the trip! Overall, highly recommended, especially if you don't have a car! Parking. When we got there the parking area was closed for some unknown reason and the hotel staff could not locate anyone to open it. We ended up parking on the street, which took forever to find a spot. The hotel is in a narrow alley and can be hard to locate. It could have a more prominent sign to make finding it easier! (we drove by it the first time)
