Had originally booked into the Hermes Hotel but were moved to the Plaka after we had a problem with the booking. I had inadvertently made reservations for one day later than when we had intended to arrive. We had quite a bit of correspondence back and forth about room costs, and on my second last email had seen my mistake and advised as such. Unfortunately, this was missed, and I didnt follow up either. Whilst dissapointing on arrivval to find out that no room was available, after a bit of tooing and frooing, we were moved to the Plaka, which could accomodate us. At first, i found this a bit disheartening, but the Team at Plaka made up for it over the next 3 days. The room was clean and comfortable, and probably represents a higher standard than 3 stars. The breakfasts were plentiful, and we worked our way thru mostly Greek food (with a little western tucker thrown in). The attention from the guys at reception and breakfast rooms couldnt be faulted. The lovely lady who ran the bar on the roof top terrace, is indeed very special, and a real people person. Spend some time relaxing and enjoying the view from here. We loved coming back for a late night drink/coffee, after being out all day, to just sit and watch the lights of the Acropolis in all its glory. If you are looking for a hotel in Athens, then price, quality, cleanliness, staff, location, and of course views, will see you putting your head down at Plaka.
