The Attalos Hotel is a 2-star (C’ class) hotel, and there are several reasons to stay at the Hotel Attalos. OK, so it's not in the Plaka, it's a five minute walk. It is next to the Monastiraki Flea Market and Metro Station (for getting to the boats to the islands). It is a five-minute walk to the Acropolis and it is a block from Psiri, the hippest part of Athens with great cafes, ouzeries and restaurants at night.
The Attalos hotel has a rooftop cafe with a view of the Parthenon, air conditioning, breakfast, family owned and probably the thing that will impress you most about the Attalos hotel is the level of professionalism in the staff. Kostas Zissis and his staff, particularly Sakis, Savas, and the most elegant night manager in Athens: Mister Lee, could run the Hilton hotel, the Grande Bretagne or any of the expensive luxury hotels in Athens. But here they are at the little old Attalos.
Take advantage of quality service at a very low price and the best rooftop bar view in Athens!
