Travelled in May 2013...Located conveniently in the Plaka area, close to Syntagma Square and the entrance to the Acropolis, the hotel was perfect for exploring Athens. The room was of average size, nicely decorated, with a two seater in front of the window and a nice white marbled bathroom. The room had all required amenities except a tea/coffee maker which...

For a two star hotel, this place is quite good. The rooms are average size for Europe and they are very clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet could use a couple more hot choices and the WiFi is quite slow. Also, the walls are quite thin, so it can be very noisy, both due to noisy... More

I liked my stay here for five days in Athens. Everything was more than acceptable, aside from the creepy claustrophobic elevator. The staff were more than helpful with all my queries and questions about the city. The Location is close to a lot of tourist attractions, and great restaurants. I like the photos of the rooms the hotel provides, they... More

We visited in Jan 2016 for a weekend break to see the sights of Athens. The hotel is very central in the Plaka district, 200 yards from Syntagma square and maybe half a mile from the entrance to the Acropolis. The area has plenty of bars and restaurants, with ample opportunity to sit outside watching the world go by. The... More

The hotel is located in between Syntagma & Monastiraki, & the "flee markets". Room was very clean & quiet. We were offered a room change but declined. Staff were very friendly & helpful. Buffet breakfast was available and very good. We will definitely be staying again. Thank you Hermes Hotel, till we meet again :)

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.
