The Plaka Hotel is the best place to stay in Athens. It is centrally located and has a spectacular view of the Acropolis from the rooftop patio. It is close walking distance to the major tourist sites, shops and restaurants. Staff are friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean and have air conditioning. Breakfast is a must do in the morning.

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.
Kind and helpful staff in this well located hotel
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!!!
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.
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.
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
Location, roof garden views, breakfast.
Very soft beds, could not control room temperature,
Location was excellent for visiting all major sights on foot. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice.
Location, location, location. Plaka is located close to many main Athens attractions and transportation options.
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
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.
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.
The location was excellent. Walking distance to everything. Cleaning staff excellent.
The traffic noise, even when the window was closed, was very, very noisy. We paid for a 5 hour WiFi card but their WiFi hardly worked so I couldn't use all my hours and staff would not refund me. A.C. didn't work first few days.
Very well positioned, roof terrace has a great view.
Small room, but clean.
The location of the Hotel, is very good
The Staff, did not speak spanish, only Greak, and any of English
