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

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

    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!

    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.

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

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

The hotel had booked a long time before arrival to a very reasonable price and was with my stay in the hotel was very good. The check-in went very fast and my request for a quiet also room with a direct view on the Acropolis was taken into account. The view from the room was fantastic and the Acropolis was only by the view from the roof terrace were satisfied. The single room had a good size and was clean. The breakfast offered was for a 3 star house very good. In the afternoon was also the free use of ... the machine in the breakfast room possible. The staff were friendly and it was nothing to complain about. The location of the hotel for a city sightseeing tour of Athens is ideal, because all attractions can easily be reached to foot. At the access doors to the elevator were important information for the appropriate use of public transport, so that one knew, what with restrictions due to a strike on the part of the transport is to be expected. I has fallen it at the hotel is very good and I can recommend it only. read hotel review

Competent and very friendly support given by the public relations manager, necessary room change was taken care of in a short period. The booked breakfast was good and sufficient. More dining options all in the hotel are not available. In the near vicinity there is a huge Restaurantsauswahl. The highlight of the hotel is the outdoor terrace on the 7th floor. 33rd floor with a view of the city and the Acropolis, especially at night lit very beautiful to look at. The bar is open 18 hours and you can enjoy with a drink this unique moment. read hotel review

The hotel is ideally situated in the Plaká (= athenian old town), if you want to see antique sites. It is best to the Acropolis by taxi, but the ancient agora, the Roman Forum and Hadrian's Library can be found in the immediate vicinity. As nearby the pedestrianised area with many shops and numerous nice cafes and taverns as well. The staff was friendly and accomodating. Even though we actually up to 12 hours, we could leave without extra charge up to 14 hours. The breakfast was ok but not very varied. Fresh fruit and vegetables there is very little. ... Our room had a view of the Acropolis, which of course was great. The rooms to the street side bought t. Balconies. Amazingly we could sleep with an open window at night, it is that quiet. We felt very comfortable and would stay here again. So: Absolutely recommendable! read hotel review
