With a central location on a largely pedestrianized side street that is as quiet as you get in Plaka, the venerable Acropolis House gets lots of return visits from teachers and thrifty Hellenophiles. Rooms are small, but several (notably 401 and 402) have good views toward the Acropolis and can be requested, but not guaranteed. The décor is throughout is, at best, distinguished dingy. The "new" (only 60 years old) wing is boring architecturally and more dorm-like in mood. Prices are often negotiable.
