Outstanding service. Nice breakfast included. Great location. A real Gem. Very helpful and friendly service and nice room. A two room connector for four of us for a great price. Free coffee and crackers all day in lobby. Great location near plaka and shopping. clean. A welcome site and experience after two weeks of traveling.

Very friendly staff ...rooms a little small but overall a good place to stay in for short periods of time. Ideal location to Athens cafes and shops and the Plaka. Staff are friendly and welcoming and very helpful.

This hotel exceeded my expectations. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Our room had a spectacular view of myknos town. Although some would find the walk into town fairly steep it is well worth it for the view. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Good location close to the Plaka and Acropolis. Basic and fine. The neighborhood is undergoing renovations and the first impression is that it might be a little sketchy but actually proved to be fine.

This place met every one of our standards. It was close to everything and the price was the best we could find in the Plaka. The service is good and the rooms are decent-sized and have everything you'd need. The a/c was a little dodgy, but I am finding that is the case for the other places I'm staying while... More

This hotel has very clean rooms and a wonderful location. Breakfast is also good with a variety of options. It's exactly a 5 minute walk or less to ermou street and plaka area. Highly recommended and I'll definitely be back in here if I'm in Athens again.

Dear Duhaelawaml, Thank you for recommending Hermes hotel to the ones that wish central location, rich breakfast included in the rate and clean rooms. All that while being only 5 min walk from Plaka main square and few block away from the Acropolis. Hope to see you again More

We stayed one night in Hermes. The hotel is close to Zyntagma square. The room was spacious and the service was very good. The breakfast was good, and the people in the reception gave a lot of good tips for our vacation in the islands.

Stayed here for 3 nights, am very happy with the hotel. The location is the utmost importance and it really is a convenient location to get around. Syntagma Sq metro is around 5 mins walk and Acropolis is around 10. What I love about the hotel location is there's so many good tavernas, bakeries and places to eat around. You... More

We had two adjoining rooms for a family of four. This is a simple clean hotel in an excellent location with friendly staff. The rooms were a good size and the breakfast was good. Walking distance to all the main attractions and the staff were happy to assist with any reservations or tourist advice.

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.
