It is with great pleasure and satisfaction that we read your comments following your recent stay at Hermes hotel. Thank you for sharing your experience with us, which will be helpful to future clients.
We certainly hope you will be able to stay with us once more on future visits to Athens.
Very good location, walking distance to lot of interesting pleaces in Plaka. A lot of good restaurants around. Staff very helpfull and hospitalable. Rooms a litle bit old but very clean. For sure I will be back!
Your promise to come back is the best award we can get from our precious guests. We thank you and we are looking forward.
This hotel is a size that means the staff still treat the clients a guests, it's personal and service is important. The hotel has been modernised but sadly the two-person lift remains in place. The location is ideal, close to the best parts of Athens.
Dear David A
We are very proud to have earned your recommendation. Thank you for taking time to share the experience of your visit with us and with other fellow travellers.
Hermes is a second-generation family run hotel and we have invested a lot of personal interest , so as to secure a personal and pleasant stay. As for the small elevator, though we renovated the hotel lately, no matter how much we would like the possibility of a bigger elevator it is very difficult. Thank you again.
Excellent location in Plaka, within walking distance to Acropolis, restaurants, and all the main tourist sites; yet a couple of streets away from the noisy main road. The hotel is simple, clean, and meets all your basic needs. Our room was small (standard for most European hotels); but had a little balcony that we could see into the local streets. The hotel has a little roof garden but no Acropolis view. We highly recommend you go to their sister hotel - Plaka Hotel to see the Acropolis from its roof garden. The staff is friendly and helpful. Eva walked around the breakfast dining area to talk to guests to offer help. Since we only had one day to visit all 7 seven sites of Acropolis, Eva gave us tips on the routes and places to stop which was very helpful. The hot breakfast was very good and opened from 7am to 10am. And the continental breakfast room was open early for the guests who needed to catch an early ferry or plane.
While you are staying at Hermes, make sure you eat at Marco AsPor Alogo restaurant which is right in front of the hotel on the right hand side. It is a family owned restaurant with very food solvaski and fried fish. The owner Marco is really friendly and offered us free coffee, water bottles and sweets with our meals. And the price was very affordable too.
Thank you so much for your praise of Hermes hotel's "excellent location", "good breakfast"and particularly your compliments on our helpful staff. As for the view from roof terrace, there is one from the upper deck, but as well mentioned the best view is from our sister hotel's just two streets away. We are really glad you returned with a great souvenir Best regards
I stayed at Hermes Hotel for 2 nights last week and the overall experience was nice.
The location is good and very easy to get to the main tourist spots...It is near to Metro station as well.
The room was very clean and new, and I enjoyed the hot shower with high water pressure there.
Thank you for choosing Hermes Hotel and for your feedback. It is true our hotel is in an exceptional location, as not only it is surrounded by most archeological sites but also Synatgma metro station (2 blocks away) has direct connection to the airport.I am glad the new bathrooms offered you a positive impression too. Hope to see you again. Best regards
My husband and I spent 5 days at the Hermes hotel, very well located to the old part of Athens, close to all tourist sites. Breakfast ample. Quite comfortable. The young lady by the name of Kiveli was so helpful, Kiveli would ask at breakfast what were we going to do that day, if nothing planned she would suggest and we took all her suggestions and saw everything, she was fantastic. Hermes Hotel don't let Kiveli leave. We had a great time in Athens thank you Kiveli.
We are so happy that great location, rooms and breakfast wise your expectations were matched. Mostly we are proud that our friendly staff made the difference of your stay at the Hermes hotel. We thank you for staying with us and for sharing your positive experience on TA. Best regards
