Stayed here for two nights; location is great - especially for those using the airport bus, which is only a few minutes away by Syntagma Square. Staff are very friendly and helpful, even told us about the rooftop bar (with a view of the Acropolis) at their sister hotel. Rooms were a decent size, beds comfortable and no problems with... More

My family and I stayed at the Hermes hotel for two nights. We chose the Hermes because of its location. it is located in the bustling Plaka neighborhood and is about a 15 minute walk from the Acropolis. We took the Metro from the airport to the station at the Greek Parliament. The Metro is clean and we felt safe... More

Nice rooms, and a good breakfast. Staff work hard to please you. You are 5 minutes from Parliament and the Plaka - perfect location. AC in the room, rooftop view (partial) of Acropolis. Huge, comfy lobby. Full tub w powerful shower. We had a perfect stay!

This clean and comfortable hotel is located in the heart of the Plaka district placing you in the centre of the action. The Acropolis, Agora and Ministriki flea market are literally a few minutes walk away. The hotel staff could not have been more helpful, particularly Oana who stayed late at work (past eleven at night) to find an Athens... More

Friendly receptionists, all were helpful. Free tea and coffee at the little refreshment area till 7pm is appreciated. Clean and tidy room, but really too small and a bit old. The worst thing is the bathroom, small and worse is the showering area, water is unadvoidably splashed out on the floor because of the stupid design. After showering, the floor... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and what we can say is that is very well located, near syntagma square, where all the tours depart. Also, the acropolis and plaka are at walking distance. Breakfast and customer service are very good. On the negative side, Rooms are small and electronics seem old (A/C and TV).

This hotel has a lovely location very close to syntagma, restaurants and shopping. Overall, it is a standard chain style of hotel. The rooms were ok, our view was horrible (wall of the building across the road). The nice thing is you have access to the sister hotel's roof top with a simple bar and lovely view of the Acropolis...

This ‘no frills’ hotel is situated in the centre of Athens and is walking distance to most sites that you would want to see in Athens. It is close to the Acropolis, Syntagma Square, Monastiraki market, Adrianou shops, Plaka, and there are plenty of restaurants and bar nearby. Also, we felt safe walking around late at night.

We recently stayed for two nights in Athens and for a small hotel it was big in service with staff that helped in any way with a smile. Great location in Plaka, easy and close to walk to most main attractions. Plenty of restaraunts, cafes and shops all close to the hotel, really a great experience. Mario & Judy, Australia

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.
