Hotel Kimon's comfortable, even stylish rooms are some of the most affordable in heavily touristed Plaka.

Hotel Attalos is a good value for budget travelers. A relaxed throwback to the 1970s, it's less shiny than it is dependable.

The Student and Travellers Inn's bright rooms are clean and comfortable, decked out in vibrant yellow and blue.

We appreciated the Carolina's old-fashioned cage elevator, reminiscent of the late 19th century. And loved the roof terrace, which made us feel like we were on top of the world.
Address 7 Kapnikareas & Mitropoleos (Plaka)
First and foremost, the Plaka is a capable hotel, with especially good rates considering the hotel's location in the heart of heaviliy tourist-trafficked Athens.
