We chose this hotel because of it's location, near Syntagma Square. Short way from the bus stop from the airport, from where we arrived quite late in the night (with no suitcases). The room, a de luxe room with balcony, was quite small, the balcony the same and with no furniture, and also the bathroom (small). The fridge was useless.... More

The best thing about this hotel is it's location, so convenient for seeing the main sites and just a few minutes walk to Plaka or Syntagma. Definitely worth going to their sister hotel to enjoy the Acropolis view at sunset. Varied, quality breakfast and good soundproofing in the rooms. Friendly staff.

I researched trip advisor for all our accommodation for our 6 week trip to the UK/Europe and this was the only hotel that was a disappointment. i note with interest on Trip Advisor that Dorina S Hermes Hotel General Manager only responds to positive reviews and ignores critical reviews. So it is therefore unsurprising that only some of the staff... More

Dear nakiboys, I thank you for choosing Hermes hotel for your long stay in Athens. I am sorry to read that after experiencing a "perfect location", staff assistance at all times, "a spotlessly clean and comfortable room with good A/C" and " a delightful Greek corner at breakfast", you still do not recommend our hotel. It is a pity you... More

Fabulous hospitality. Welcoming, friendly and very helpful. Generous breakfast with wide selection of food and drinks including decent coffee. Neat , tidy and very quite. Off the busy streets but close enough to everything. Air con with double glazed windows shuts off all outside noise ( if any) with black out curtains. Wonderful lounge with coffee and tea on offer...

Prior to our stay, I called and requested a room on the top floor. We were given a room on the 5th floor, one from the top. This room, although small, was relatively quiet with minimal noise from above despite the wooden flooring. On arrival, we were advised that the view of the Acropolis is at their sister hotel, Hotel... More

This hotel is a surprise. It is not specially beautiful, but the basic services are amazing. Despite the fact it wasn't a luxury hotel, it was the first one that had gluten free itens at the breakfast buffet without asking.

This is a centrally located hotel for a good price. Rooms are small but just adequate, and certainly fresh and clean. Breakfast is adequate, staff were helpful. Lift is tiny!

Staying in Plaka

Neighborhood Profile
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.
