Excellent location in the heart of Syntagma Square location (also known as Plaka), helpful staff, clean and comfortable and very good value. Nothing to fault at all. Sister hotel (Hotel Plaka) has a lovely roof garden.

Stayed for 4 nights with a friend in a twin room. Very clean, friendly staff, all-you-can-eat breakfast, brilliant location and good price. Couldn't have been better for our stay in Athens. Would visit again.

It's in a very good location in the centre of Athens, and very easy to find if you are coming to Athens by the Metro train. The room was clean, the staff were friendly, breakfast was very tasty and the shower was powerful which...

The location is amazing. It is right in the center of Plaka. You are close to the shops and to many famous sights. The room is a bit tiny, and our bed could have been more comfortable, which is why I have removed a star. However, the breakfast was great, lots of different options to choose from and the reception...

We had a delightful stay at Hermes. Our room was great. The staff is so nice and accommodating and goes out of their way to make your stay pleasant, we were sad to say goodbye.

Staying in Plaka

Neighbourhood 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.
