Venture Insight

Hotel Plaka is set right in the heart of Athens – an ancient, yet forward thinking city, and the capital of Greece. Situated in one of the most enviable locations in the city, this 3-star comfortable hotel is a stone’s throw from the Acropolis, ancient Agora and the Forum – many of which you can see from the stunning rooftop garden and terrace. This charming 67 room hotel was redecorated throughout in 2014, and guest rooms are clean, well-appointed and simply decorated.


Hotel Plaka is a mere 10-15 minutes’ walk from the famous Athenian Acropolis, an ancient citadel set atop a hillside which dates to the 5th century. From the hotel, it’s easy to explore such historic wonders as the ancient Agora, the Parthenon, Theatre of Dionysus, the Forum and Hadrian’s Library. When you have exhausted the ancient sites, you may wish to venture further afield. If so, Monastiraki Metro station close to the hotel can transport you right across Athens in no time at all.

Your Room + Facilities

The hotel offers a range of rooms starting from 16m2 in size. Each has large windows, air-conditioning, shower or bathtub, free WiFi and comes with a complimentary buffet breakfast. Visitors wishing to gain a view of the Acropolis each morning as they wake should consider booking a deluxe Acropolis room. Many of the rooms have small balconies, but if yours doesn’t, the rooftop garden bar serving drinks and light snacks offers amazing views across Athens.
