Lonely Planet review
It’s hard to beat the Acropolis views from the rooftop garden, as well as those from top-floor rooms. Tidy rooms have light timber floors and furniture, and satellite TV, though bathrooms are on the small side. Though called the Plaka Hotel, it's actually closer to Monastiraki.
Our independent authors have visited Plaka Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Athens.
