We stayed at the Hermes for 4 nights and had a great room at reasonable prices in the shadow of the Acropolis. The Hotel staff was exceptionally gracious, accommodating and helpful. The breakfast was a super delight and the bottle of wine was a great touch; drank it looking at the Acropolis from the roof top patio. Will stay there... More

The hotel was close to Plaka. The management was very helpful. We needed to catch a taxi to the port the following morning, thanks to the hotel for informing us that city center would close at a certain time for a bike race, so we needed to leave earlier. The breakfast was very good.

Stayed here for three nights recently, excellent location close to the Plaka area with all its shops and restaurants. We had a superior room which was on the fourth floor. This meant we had a balcony that was open (as opposed to the three floors below which were closed in). All the balconies had tables and chairs but that little... More

The staff could not be more helpful. During each morning breakfast... More

Excellent location, right in the Plaka. Comfortable room, helpful staff. Breakfast was plentiful and good. Be sure to go to "sister" hotel, the Plaka Hotel to visit the roof garden. Stunning view of the Acropolis at night.

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.
