“Very close to all the attractions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2012

Just got back from Greece and stayed at the Hermes Hotel in the Plaka three times during my trip. Great Hotel, everything the traveller needs, good breakfast, airconditioning, internet, close to the Plaka, metro & syntagma square, pleasent and helpful staff and a really beautiful view of the Acropolis at night from the roof top garden.

Room Tip: If you want to be close to the roof top garden pick levels 4 or 5.

A friend and I stayed there o 3 separate occasions in June this year. We found it very handy to Plaka, Acropolis and the shuttle bus to the airport and city tours.
The rooms were small but adequate. The breakfast was tasty and varied,and the staff were extremly helpful. A special rememberance was the bottle of red wine left in our room on our last night spent in Athens.
Thank you,we will certainly reccomend this hotel.

This hotel had the best breakfast option out of any of the hotels or the cruise that we went on. The hotel is a small modern one on the edge of the Plaka, and is a great location for people on foot. Syntagma square is nearby, from where one can catch taxis, buses, or the metro. In particular, the X95 bus line from the airport goes to Syntagma every twenty minutes and only costs €5.

The staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very comfortable, and had air conditioning. It was a great place to stay to experience the heart of Athens.

Room Tip: Some rooms have balconies that look out onto the street.

THis hotel is a great find in the heart of Athens Plaka. It is walking distance to the Acropolis and in the old part. It is very convenient by airport bus x95 from the airport to Syntagma then 3 blocks to the hotel. The breakfast is huge and the eating area is very nice and clean. The rooms are small but more than adequate for a short trip to AThens. My family stayed just 1 night to see the Acropolis befoer going on to Santorini.
