Neighborhood
Plaka
Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay and play. Its attractive features include small squares, some notable museums and the beautiful Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.

More than adequate. Very helpful staff. You can walk to anything in the city worth seeing from here. Be sure and get a room with the view of the Parthenon Certainly lots of hotels with this view but I think this is a great price point.

How to ensure sixth floor Acropolis view room while reserving through online sites ?
Contact by mail the hotel directly. Request and they will definitely try to match it your expectations. Even if you get the 5th or 4th floor is as nice as the 6th floor.
