Service and Hotel room is average. Location is excellent for sight seeing and dinning out. Top roof bar is also must go. Nice night view in Athens. Elevator is just small one and moving slow.

Plaza hotel is in a central location so is very convenient to the sites and shopping and transport. The hotel staff were competent. The room price reflects the type of room and facilities. If you don't want a pool gym or spaciousness then thismisma satisfactory hotel.

A well located hotel, very friendly staff (always available and ready to help). Everything is clean and quiet. Good breakfast, free coffee and cookies offered till 17:30 in the restaurant (quiet music at the background). The only issue is the lift. It is nice, clean and well supported but too small. So most of the time it is busy. You have to wait a little every time you need it.

The Plaka exceeded our expectations. The room was spacious and the view of the acropolis was stunning. The staff were very professional and informative and the breakfast was excellent. The hotel was in a very central position and easily accessible by bus from the airport. It was surrounded by many bars and restaurants and was very close to the flea markets. The central square with hop on hop off bus stops was about a five minute walk, as were the metro and bus and tram stops. We really enjoyed our stay at The Plaka hotel and would certainly recommend it to anyone visiting Athens.

We spent one night in Athens and at The Plaka and wish it could have been many more. The room was very specious, exceptionally clean with good linens, towels and very comfortabe beds. The breakfast provided an excellent variety with the best best feta cheese and Halva! Loved it! The location to the old plaka, the metro, restaurants and the Acropolis was convenient and provided easy walkig routes. The rooftop bar was as described, excellent for the view of the Acropolis and a restful place to relax. We will be back!

We were on the second floor with a view of the Acropolis. We thought the hotel was fantastic - good price, nice room, great breakfast, perfect location. The only thing that could be improved was if the WiFi internet was free (it was available for a small charge).

Hotel Plaka is very close the the Plaka district, where many restaurants and bars are located. It's an easy 4 minute walk from Monistiraki train station. You can also walk to the Acropolis and other sites from the hotel. The street it's on can be quite noisy so be prepared to keep your windows closed and use the airconditioning. The rooftop terrace and view of the Parthenon was a delight. The staff were friendly, helpful and spoke good english. I would recommend the Plaka Hotel to any of my friends.

I was on a business trip but had some spare time for visiting: the area between the hotel and the Acropolis is fantastic. No traffic at all (probably the only quiet area in the center of Athens), plenty of small restaurants and carachteristc shops. Very relaxing!

We realize that Athens is a noisy city, but we did feel the sound insulation in the hotel wasn't very good, even between rooms. Ear plugs took care of the problem at night. Otherwise it was great, especially the location and the rooftop deck.

We got what we paid for. Location was great and the room was as expected. Very small bathrooms but this is quite normal in large European cities. The roof top terrace was great! Overall, we were happy with the Plaka Hotel.

The Hotel Plaka appears to be an oasis in the middle of the mish mash of streets that surround the Monastiraki area. The staff are very helpful and pleasant, the rooms, on the two times we have stayed, were of a medium size with shower room attached. Breakfast was good. The icing on the cake for us though was the views of the Acropolis, from the south facing rooms and the roof terrace was nothing short of breathtaking. Sitting on the terrace on a clear summer's evening as the sun sets you can take in a 360 degree vista of Athens. Very beautiful. Would stay there again? most definitely. One word of warning though. If you come in from the airport by taxi though, provide the driver with a map, as the rabbit warren of streets can cause some confusion

The room was quite, comfortable, and clean. A little dated, but not unexpected. If you want to explore the ruins this is a great spot to start from. Close to shopping, metro, restaurants, etc....
