My daughter and I stayed here for 4 nights when we were visiting Athens. It is in walking distance to everything but most importantly the service was wonderful. Specifically Maria G. helped us immensely. When our ferry was cancelled she made sure we got a flight to Santorini and would help us call our travel agent and restaurants. She gave...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 28 December 2016

Hotel Hermes offers super-central very nice but slightly dated rooms. Last year room 208 facing the street of the hotel entrance was quiet. This year we had a room facing the other side on a top floor which was noisy (school, parties, ...). The balcony onto the street with the hotel entrance is not v.noisy off-season but there is no...

A lovely hotel with attractive rooms, very friendly and knowledgeable desk help, tasty breakfast and superb location. Walk to everything: close-by tavernas for dining, the Plaka, the Acropolis, the Agora. Price was reasonable. Small elevators by US standards, but certainly effective. Room was quiet, well furnished and convenient.

Strongly recommend the great team at Hermes. Always smiling & ready with some great tips for getting out to see the less touristy side of Athens (as well as the usual places). Cheap & fast laundry service, really good breakfast. Fantastic showers in the rooms too!

I spent one night at the Hotel Hermes, because the place at which I normally stay in Athens was completely booked. But I will return to the Hotel Hermes on future trips. The place is within easy walking distance of Syntagma, Monastiraki, and the Acropolis, yet it's on a side street away from the noise and bustle of those spots....

This hotel is centrally located between Syntagma square and Monastiraki and is only a 15 minute walk to the Acropolis. The staff are efficient and friendly. The hotel is obviously well managed. The little extra touches I loved: coffee and biscuits available all day (free); continental breakfast available even if you have to get up at 5am to catch a...

We have spent 4 night at this hotel. The personnel is very friendly whether it is at the reception, at room service or at breakfast. The hotel is really close to most of the places you want to visit and just next to the Plaka. Point you must know is that the rooms are rather small but in the end...

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.
