Expected more!

I expected more from this hotel as it is a little more expensive than their sisters Hermes Hotel. But staying in Hermes fist, Plaka was not what I expected it to be. Its more futher away from the airport buss station and its located on the busy street where you can hear the noise even late at night with the windows closed. The hotel itself looks dark, old and I would say it needs some renovation (compering to Hermes hotel). At least the size of the room was huge and I guess you pay for the view from the rooftop ... terrace because noone can compete that!:) read hotel review

The hotel location is perfect - just near Acropol and in center of Plaka. There is a amaizing view from the roof of the hotel on the Acropol and the city of Athens. The room was clean. The breakfest was perfect. read hotel review

A perfect start to our holiday.

  • July 2013
We booked the hotel at the beginning and at the end of our island hopping holiday on the cyclades booked. The 1st time we had a very small room without a balcony. At the end of a clearly more spacious with bathtub and a balcony. Price was right. On the whole, the hotel is very clean but not very spectacular decor. But has a stunning dachtherasse - in the night pop up! wireless internet is free available, but extremely slow - as almost everywhere in Greece. read hotel review

    The hotel is located in the middle of the fußganängerzone in Athens. Almost perfect. To the airport one drives with the metro about 45 minutes, to piraeus is about 20 minutes and otherwise are all attractions are within walking distance. Subway is unnecessary! In the vicinity are cafes, restaurant and the shopping street.

  • Service
    6.0

    As well as check-in and check-out quickly worked smoothly. There is a 24-h front desk, and for all the early rausmüssen an early breakfast from 05:00 until 07:00 a. m.. The staff speaks good english.

    1. stay (3 nights): very small room, like one it from exetensively gewohn is. The decor is very new and modern. Bathroom was small but adequate and very clean. Enough storage space, mini bar and safe are present. In the night was but unbearably hot. Am each night sweaty woke up. 2. stay (1 night): very spacious room with a balcony and a bathtub. Also here very cleanly enough storage space. Everything just a bit larger and much more comfortable.

    The breakfast buffet has everything you need. Bread, toast, cheese, ham, eggs, jam, cake, etc. A little fresh fruit would not have gone amiss. The coffee is not recommended however. It is inedible, cheap coffee!

A successful city break in Athens

A very clean, beautiful small city hotel with nice roof terrace. Calm and pleasant and very well located. My daughter and i felt very comfortable. Was very good the guest care, a young lady, who in the morning for breakfast with some very useful tips for the city and the surrounding area the guests individually cared for. The offer free coffee and tea in the afternoon in the hotel bar was very pleasant, also the possibility at very early departure for a continental breakfast to get. The plaka hotel definitely again. read hotel review

Really an awesome Hotel! Fully recommend it!

Hi everybody, I must admit I´m not a frequent "online-rater", but if something is outstandingly good (or bad) I force myself to rate it. In this case it´s amazingly good. I went to Athens with my girlfriend for 4 days. We just got back yesterday and it was really an unforgettable trip. Part of it, because the Hotel was just perfect! Right in the heart of Athens, with everything just the way it should be (service, cleanliness, food and extras like the view on the acropolis and the rooftop-terrace with an beautiful view over the city). And all that for ... a more then reasonable (not to say cheap) price! I can just say: I travel a lot, but this Hotel and its staff left me stunned, with a need to recommend it to everyone and more than willing to come back! read hotel review
