The hotel is located in the Plaka section of Athens and is situated very nicely for walking and seeing the historical sites including the Acropolis, Temple of Zeus, Roman Agora, Ancient Agora, the National Gardens, Syntagma Square etc. There are plenty of tavernas, shops, and other restaurants within several blocks of the hotel and access to the main road at...

This year we had a room facing the other side on a top floor which was noisy (school, parties, ...). The balcony onto the street with the hotel entrance is not v.noisy off-season but there is no...

Location of this hotel is very good, walking distance to many places of interest in town. Fairly small hotel with a bit limited facilities, but room was nice and clean and balcony was great surprise with nice sunset view. Staff was friendly and breakfast was tasty. Worth of money for sure. From roof terrace you can see to Acropolis, but...

The rooms were fantastic. They were beautiful, clean, spacious, very comfortable. Bathrooms were clean too, with plenty of hot water. Beds were comfortable, and there were real blankets on the beds (not the sheets we have in hotels in the states), plus extra blankets in the closets. Plenty of closer/dresser space, a fridge, and a safe. There were also excellent...

Our experience at Hermes Hotel was exceptional! The location is phenomenal: many great restaurants around (we liked the Greco's project -- the chicken souvlaki was awesome) and it is easy walking distance to the acropolis (around 7 minutes to the main entrance). The breakfast was truly outstanding (their Greek yogurt with honey was the best that I have had anywhere),...

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.
