The hotel is located in the plaka, walking distance from all the main attraction including of course the Acropolis. The rooms are a bit old, I had two rooms, in one room the television didn't work at all, and 8n the other, I could watch only 4 channels, they didn't fix it for two days. The showers are tiered they... More

Our hotel room was quite small, but we were only in it from 11 pm to 7 am. It is so close to the sights, that we were able to walk to everything that we wanted to see. We didn't have tea or coffee making facilities in our room, but it was much better to meet people in the lounge... More

This little hotel was so easy to find. We caught a bus from Athens airport and got off at Syntagma Square and walk to hotel took about 10min. This hotel is central to all the famous sites.Hotel staff very friendly and accommodating. Rooms very clean. Breakfast was simple yet ample for the start of some very big days touring around....

Placed not so far from the "Acropolis", it is a nice and calm hotel in Athens. Syntagma station is reachable in 7min walking. The room and the bathroom are wide, the bed is comfortable and a nice "welcome" wine bottle was waiting us. For breakfast we had a mix of Greek and international (English included) standard food, so we found... More

After reviewing many hotels I wanted a place which was centrally located, close to the main historical sites, near the subway system and trams and the location of Hermes certainly did not disappoint. The first room I had was at the back of the hotel and I requested a change as the wi-fi was not picking up in that location.... More

An excellent location - close to Parthenon and major sites, and restaurants and shopping. Very helpful and knowledgable staff. Good sized, clean and comfortable room with balcony. The wine and baklava in the room were a very nice touch. Tea, coffee and chilled water are available all day in the lounge. The breakfast was very generous, with several hot dishes... More

Great hotel in good location. Excellent hot breakfast, nice room and comfortable bed. I agree with many of the previous reviews which praises the staff. We found the staff to be very courteous, friendly, and patient. They were always willing to explain directions and offer advice. They also held our bags in a secure closet area while we did some...

We spent 5 nights here prior to a sailing trip of the Greek Isles. The Hermes is in a great central location, surrounded by good local restaurants but what makes the hotel is the friendly staff at the desk. Everywhere you go in the hotel you are greeted warmly. Buffet breakfast is good - service from 7-10am. WIFI a little... More

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.
