The Plaka area of Athens is considered to be the original streets/area of the city. From the hotel you can walk to many attractions, shops, restaurants, cafes, public transportation, etc. The front desk was very helpful. Breakfast was enjoyable with a modest selection of items. Having tea/coffee in the lobby was a nice amenity. Guests may use the terrace on...

I stayed here for 2 nights while on a tour (ie I did not choose to book this hotel). It is in a good location, being only a 5-minute walk from Syntagma Square. The room I had (106) was not a bad size, perhaps a little cramped, but it was comfortable. The bathroom was good with a decent size bath...

Dear Jonathan M, Happy New year! Thank you for taking the time to share your positive experience on TA, though we would have been happier getting a better score. We are in the hotel business for many years and have a great reputation in what means "hospitality" and taking care of all little issues. I am glad, you as well,...

We spent 5 days over the Christmas holidays in this hotel and were very pleased with the level of comfort both in our room and in the hotel in general. Its location was great for all the attractions we wanted to visit. But the best feature of Hermes Hotel was the staff who were unfailingly friendly and helpful. The dedicated...

Had a 6th floor room with balcony. Amazing view! Rooftop garden has a view of Acropolis so we would enjoy a glass of wine at night there. Central location so we could walk to many sites. Super breakfast and amazing staff. We left Athens for 2 day tour and hotel provided lock up service for our large suitcases. If we...

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...

This hotel is a solid 3-star establishment - not pretentious, pretty basic rooms, decent breakfast... not extraordinary, it delivers on what it promises. BUT the difference is in the staff - you couldn't ask for a friendlier and more helpful reception, they always took time to talk to you on your way in or out, offered advice and helped finding...

The hotel is with a very good location - close to the Syntagma Square and all landmarks are within walking distance. The staff is very friendly. They served good English and continental breakfast with the opportunity to book an early breakfast. Our room was clean and big enough. Thank you for the compliment on my Birthday :)

The hotel staff is nice but the rooms are very small also the food was not that good. The hotel is near the subway and the bus stop. The shower was also small. It not a Hermes brand so do not expect something fancy

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.
