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...

Recently spent 5 days in the Hermes hotel. The stay was over our expectations. The room is clean and convenient. The Mediterranean style breakfast with salads, olives, yogurts, cheese and much more. The service is great and very helpful. The location is close to everything you want to visit in Athens. Bottom line - highly recommended hotel.

Very honest 3 star hotel, very conveniently located in the center. Clean room, maybe on the small side but comfortable. The breakfast was a great surprise being fresh and with a great choice of all greek ingredients. Well done and we would definitely recommend.

Location of this hotel is very good, walking distance to many places of interest in town.

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.
