We stayed the first week of March in this modern small hotel (#307) at a reasonal price!
Withing walking distace of Syntagma Metrostation and all the archeological sites in the heart of Plaka district.

The room was big enough and beds where good. Cleaned every day.
Breakfast (buffet) was excellent and beyond expectations.
Special thanks foor the helpfull an freindly staff. Especially the young girl who helped us with tips (during breakfast) toget the best out of our stay.
Compliments to you all!

Stayed on third floor .Balcony dangerous for little kids,huge open gap to r hand side down to street!!!!!also air cond pipes in walkway of balcony door,exposed.no balcony furniture.
Bathroom poorly ventilated,low ceiling,not good for 6 footers!!shower flooded bathroom.
Breakfast superb buffet although not till 2pm as advertised on website,only until 10am.
Large group of Greek students caused unbearable noise for 2 nights out of our 3,being on our floor!!!!!!!Not good when you booked a family room.Breakfast was also a noisy time!!!
Wooden floors are lovely but you can here all footsteps!!!
The staff were wonderful,thanks to Angeliki who helped us with our itinery,Dionysis on reception who made us feel totally at home,and on the last day to Margherita on reception who was most helpful at check out.
Next time I would ensure we were as far away from the students as possible as they were roaming around at night!!We wanted a quiet break but didnt get one!!!

My husband and I have stayed here many times over the last few years and we wouldn't consider going anywhere else. The location is perfect, being in the centre of Athens, yet positioned in a quiet side street. The staff are friendly and welcoming and the rooms, though quite small, are extremely clean and tastefully decorated (wooden floors, modern fittings and cosy duvets in the winter months). I also love the marble clad bathrooms, which have proper walk-in showers - no ill-fitting shower curtains and wet floors, as in so many Greek hotels.

There is always a good breakfast - with plenty to choose from and a comfortable bar area downstairs for an evening drink.

We thoroughly recommend the Hermes.

The hotel is located in Plaka area with walking distance to all major attractions. It is very close to Syntagma square / parlament with metro lines and buses to the airport and the whole Athen area. This means that you can avoid using Athen taxis (bad reputation!) during your stay and from/to the airport.
Some of the rooms are rather small while others are spacious. If you get a small room, it is possible to get a larger one without any extra cost. The breakfast buffet is basic but contains what you need.
Staff is exceptionally friendly (except one elderly receptionist) and service minded. A young lady adresses every guest at breakfast to ensuree everything is OK. She also advice and assist if you want to join an organized tour. She is really a gold mine for a tourist in Athens!
I really recommend this hotel if you are a tourist in Athens. In february we paid 50 euros/night for a double room included breakfast, which is good value for money.

The Hermes Hotel is in an excellent location in the Plaka area only 5 minutes walk from Syntagma Square. The facilities were great, the rooms were spacious and the beds were very comfortable. It was great to sit on our balcony and look across the rooftops of Athens. Even though we were in a central location the area was very quiet.

The buffet breakfast was very generous and had something to please everyone. All the staff were friendly and provided a very high level of service. We enjoyed ourselves so much we are hoping to return there one day.
