Plaka Hotel in Athens

We are thinking of reserving accommodations at Plaka Hotel for our 3 night stay in Athens. I would like to hear what some of you on this forum thought about your stay. We are looking at a late April stay. Thank you.

When we were on the RS Greece tour we stayed at the Acropolis select. I would recommend it, had a lovely rooftop restaurant/bar with view of the Acropolis. Walking distance to Plaka.

I can’t comment on the Plaka Hotel, but I can recommend Hotel Hera in the Plaka area. We stayed there 5 nights and enjoyed the accommodation, great breakfast, the stunning view of the Acropolis from the rooftop as well as the central location. Our favorite restaurant- Mani Mani was just steps away. We would definitely stay there again.

We stayed at the Plaka 10 years ago. At the time it was a good choice recommended by a travel agent. The room if I recall was nice size and very clean. I do recall the elevator being small. It did have a very nice roof top bar/terrace with acropolis views and was well located. In looking back at our reservation - I did find emails from our agent that had difficulty contacting the hotel when a reservation was made in error and she needed to change/correct it. It finally did happen but she was pretty frustrated at the lack of communication. We also ate a Mani Mani and it was a highlight of our trip!

We stayed for 7 nights at the Plaka Hotel at the end of December 2021-first of January 2022. The location was great. Close to lots of restaurants and a few blocks from 2 different metro stations. The staff was extremely helpful. The breakfast buffet was good with lots of choices. Our room was clean and very nice with a balcony to watch the fireworks to ring in the new year. There is a small rooftop restaurant. It's good for drinks and a fabulous view of the Acropolis. The menu is small, but the food was good. We would definitely consider staying there again on our next trip to Athens.

Yes, I did see it. I think it means we get a discount when we check in if we show the Rick Steves guidebook to them.
