Profile: Plaka

Profile: Plaka

Plaka is built on the site of the ancient city of Athens, nestled on the slopes of the mighty Acropolis hill, from which it gets its nickname—“Neighborhood of the Gods.” Its rich heritage is chronicled in its many museums, including those dedicated to Greek folk art, music, and Jewish culture.

Plaka’s most modern draw is the Acropolis Museum, which opened in 2009. This award-winning institution houses over 4,000 objects from the archaeological site of the Acropolis of Athens. The site itself can be viewed in places through transparent floors, giving visitors a unique behind-the-scenes glimpse of the ongoing excavations.

    Great Location!

    This was the perfect location for a couple nights stay in Athens before we went on cruise of the Greek islands. Easy walking distance to the Acropolis, lots of great eating establishments and shopping. The included breakfast was cooked to order and very fresh, along with great coffee. The room was clean and had good quality bath amenities. Would stay here again next time I'm in Athens.

    staff was so helpful and thoughtful. During covid the restaurant is closed so they were nice enough to get me a cork screw and wine glasses for me so I could enjoy the rooftop patio on my own.

    Cosy hotel in the great location

    Great location. So many nice places and monuments to see in the space of a short walk. Really comfortable and cosy rooms and we were made to feel very welcomed by the receptionists who let us know about the city and all staff were lovely.

    As there was a ban on travel, due to Covid19, i had to cancel the hotel booking. Therefore, there was nothing to rate.

    Lovely hotel with really helpful staff and in a GREAT location! Some rooms are a little small but you shouldn’t be in your room anyway when you have Athens to explore! Spotlessly clean with good toiletries selection. Breakfast is delicious! Would highly recommend this hotel and the wonderful staff 😊
