Our family absolutely enjoyed our stay here last summer. We had a family room - 2 rooms with interconnecting door, each with its own bathroom, which was perfect. The rooms are cozy, comfortable, and tastefully decorated. The location in Plaka is great for families with teenagers who want to go out exploring. It is convenient for all the major sites, and near many restaurants and cafes. The staff were friendly, kind, and helpful in every way. We would stay there again when back in Athens!

We booked into the Hermes Hotel again for two nights, enroute to a Greek island, having had a great time there in 2013. This central hotel in Plaka is conveniently placed for many visitor attractions. Airport Metro and Bus links are also nearby. The room was fine and comfortable. Excellent breakfasts are served and the staff could not be more friendly and helpful. We will certainly book to stay there again in 2015.

The hotel is ideally located, in a walkable distance to all attractions. The room is rather small, however comfortable. The efficient air condition was highly appreciated. Staff is very helpful doing their best to advise guests. Breakfast is very good. The hotel recommands the Plaka hotel roof (5 minutes walk) : don’t miss the view by night. Altogether, a very good option.

We stayed here with a 4 year old and we all loved the kids playroom which gave him and us all much-needed 'chill out' time. The staff were all friendly and incredibly helpful, our problems were anticipated and solved before we had any. This hotel felt more like a refuge and a home than a hotel and I would recommend it to anyone.

This was a great hotel in Athens. It is in a really good location - an easy walk with luggage from Syntagma Metro station and close to the Acropolis. The staff were really helpful with maps and directions. The hotel room was clean and comfortable. I am so glad we stayed in the Plaka district. There are so many little restaurants surrounding you. Breakfast was good with a great choice of food. There is a small sitting area on the rooftop with a view of the Acropolis from one part. A nice place to end the evening. Also, you get to use the rooftop bar at the sister hotel, Hotel Plaka. This hotel has an amazing view of the Acropolis from it's deck. Enjoyed a few drinks before the sun went down with the Acropolis and city as a backdrop.

Hermes Hotel is just the best small hotel in Athens. The location (Plaka) is exceptional as well as the staff who is very service oriented. I enjoyed every minute of it. I would certainly book that hotel again when I'll return to Athens.

I loved staying here! The hotel is gorgeous, clean and modern and the rooms were really lovely. Probably the biggest bathroom during my trip in Europe!

We were so close to the flea market and other attractions, it was a wonderful location. I would definitely book here again next time I go to Athens. The hotel is in a relatively quiet side street, so we slept well. Good wifi. great service.
