Plaka Hotel Review
Comfortable, with deep-blue velvet curtains that match the upholstery on the wood-arm easy chairs, the guest rooms in this charming, central hotel are a comfortable place to rest while in the heart of old Athens. This hotel, part of the family-owned chain that includes the hotels Hermes, and Athens Center Square, flourishes in its location; some rooms have views of the Acropolis, which you can also enjoy from the roof garden while sipping an evening drink. The staff is helpful, the rooms small but well kept, and breakfast is served in a glassed-in, taverna-style space overlooking the shopping thoroughfare of Ermou, Syntagma, and the Monastiraki metro. Some connecting rooms—ideal for families—are available.
