“Good value, great location, but basic accommodation”
Reviewed 5 April 2013

A nice, basic hotel. We had a large room (304) on the 3rd floor with a panoramic view of the harbour, which was lovely. The down side was that the balcony was very narrow, so a tight squeeze to fit chairs on and difficult to sit out comfortably. Also, the curtains were difficult to pull and kept jamming, so we couldn't enjoy the full benefit of the view from inside.
The shower was a tight squeeze with a curtain which didn't fit, so the floor got soaked every time we used it.
The location was perfect for all amenities and staff were pleasant, but didn't speak great English (and we don't speak Greek) so couldn't always get the information we asked for.
Overall, good value, clean, but very basic accommodation.
Beware: we went off-season and the resort was very quiet, with many places closed or being refurbished for the Summer season.

The Hermes is by no means a posh hotel, but for value for money, convenience and sheer friendliness you can't beat it. Some of the rooms have fantastic views over the harbour, too. Clean, simple, decent-sized rooms, plenty of hot water, and good wifi downstairs in the reception and breakfast area. And they've just replaced the stairway carpets, by the looks of it. You wouldn't book it for your entire holiday but for a couple of nights, it's nearby boats, buses, taxis, shops, restaurants and the old town.

Room Tip: Take your pic- sea view on main road, or quieter at the back.

We paid 50 euro per night and stayed in a large room on the top floor of the hotel which had a great view of mandraki harbour. Included in the price is daily breakfast and free wifi in the lobby. The bus station to and from the airport is just around the corner from the hotel and the ferry port is across the road. The old town and retail shops are also close- Bersha and Pull & Bear are outside the front door. The hotel was very accommodating in terms of providing travel advice and stored our luggage for several hours after check out with no charge.

Reviewed 23 May 2012

Stayed 4 nights at the Hermes in May 2012 - not sure what the room rate was as my stay was part of a package arranged personally for me by an agent, but the room certainly met all my expectations - clean, spacious and a great breakfast! But the best thing about the Hermes was its location, very close to the Old Town, New Market, bus stations, and the harbour. And two blocks from the only Starbucks I saw while in Greece!

Reviewed 18 November 2011

I was lucky enough to go during off season, and was given a top floor (3rd) room with sweeping fantastic harbor view, which more than made up for the spartan appearance of the hotel; its amenities are basic, minimal; carpeting, walls, furniture need MAJOR cleaning, refurbishing..It is close to the old town and harbor, as well as only a 5-10 min walk to the eastern city center beaches. Although, the street facing rooms face a children's park and it gets very loud way into 9, 10pm.

Room Tip: room 304 is the BEST one, center, top with wall to celing windows.

Reviewed 30 September 2010

we stayed a night in the Hermes in transit from Symi to the airport. It is just a few yards from Mandraki, in a pedestrian precict, so very quiet, with a cafe next door. The staff were very helpful. The room (306) was large, with a double and single bed, and a great view over the harbour from the balcony. I would recommed the top floor rooms.
Breakfast was included in the rate, and was very adequate, with great variety.

Reviewed 29 August 2010

We have stayed at the Hermes for the past 3 years. It is a very basic and functional accommodation. The staff is very pleasant and helpful. The rooms are clean, have ample space and good amenities at a very reasonable cost. Its most outstanding feature is its location; it overlooks Mandraki harbor (great view from the 3d floor) and is close to the New Market area and the Old Town. From this hotel you can easily walk to all the great spots on this fantastic island. The only criticism that we would offer is that this hotel could certainly use a "woman's touch", it has a utilitarian feel to it. But the bottom line is that we are very happy with this hotel and hope to return to it in the future.
