Reviewed 21 November 2013

Hotel location is central for the main tourist attractions and yet is in a quiet location. Rooms are clean, very comfortable (with two pillows each which is unusual in Greece) with toiletries and fridge. Breakfast was superb with a large choice of hot and cold items. The staff were amazing, friendly, polite and most helpful. At breakfast a member of staff circulated all tables asking if all was well and could they assist guests in planning their day's activities. When our flight was cancelled due to bad weather and we had to return to the hotel from the airport the receptionist on duty sorted out all our problems!
One of the reasons for our visit was to take part in the Athens Marathon. This involved a very early start and the hotel opened breakfast at 5am for the runners. Very much appreciated.

Hermes was quiet, comfortable and clean. The location in Plaka is perfect for seeing the important sights of Athens. The staff were very helpful and we particularly appreciated the tour information and suggestions provided each morning at breakfast which really made our stay. The
roof terrace of the sister hotel has a wonderful view of the Acropolis and is perfect for an evening drink.

We stayed at the Hermes for 7 nights in November 2013. It is in a quiet street, at the same time
being centrally located. A great choice for breakfast, and the staff were very friendly, and very
knowledgable. We would highly recommend the hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: Depends on your choice.

3 of us stayed for 4 nights in this greatly positioned hotel. The staff were so helpful and friendly, every morning at breakfast someone was on hand to advise and help plan your day. Breakfast was a bufe with everything you could want, tea and coffee were offered throughout the day free of charge. I woul recomend this place to anyone wanting to stay in Athens and be very close to the ancient sites.

This is a nice boutique hotel located very close to all major attractions in Athens and the Plaka district. We found the service at the front desk to be excellent on checkin...even offered us a turn at the breakfast since we arrived in the AM from our ship. The breakfast was very complete and nicely prepared. The Hermes staff held our luggage on arrival (and after a late checkout on departure) in a locked storage room. Very efficient and friendly!

The room itself was quiet and very clean; it was on the larger size as we had upgraded to a superior room and it was located on the fourth floor. The view was of other residences/hotels around the area. The air conditioner/heater was a bit of a challenge; AC worked great...could have used a little more warmth at night. There is a safe in the room which you will need, especially if you are out at night. Lots of restaurants nearby...

We would definitely stay again!

We stayed at the Hermes for six nights in late October. We managed to negotiate a satisfactory rate in between the high season October rate and low season November rate. We really enjoyed staying at this hotel.

The location is terrific - close to the Plaka, Monastiraki Square and Syntagma Square but on a quiet street. Lots of interesting places to eat within easy walking distance.

Very helpful staff who recommend restaurants, tours and provide invaluable directions. Everyone we came in contact with spoke excellent English.

The breakfast was amazing with a wide variety of hot an cold choices to satisfy virtually any taste. We had an early start one morning before the 7 AM breakfast service began. Expecting a bun and coffee, we were accommodated with an enormous choice of food - pretty well everything except the hot entrées.

The large lobby has comfortable seating and offers free tea, coffee and cookies all day long. Nice touch after a long day wandering around the sights of Athens.

A bonus if you have been travelling for a while is that the hotel will do a large bag of laundry for nine euros.

We were there when one of the elevator doors was not closing properly. In our opinion, it really was not a problem.
