"Nice hotel, convenient location"
The hotel is a couple of minutes walk from the bus station. We needed a functional room to stay over night between the flight to Athens and the next morning boat, and it met the expectations.

"Perfect location!"
We had 2 rooms at the Hermes on July 27 & 28th. Rooms were just as advertised. Close walking distance to everything. Rooms are small, but we expected that. Beds were also very hard! Breakfast was ok, definitely different than what we are used to, but fine. Room was clean and neat. We took a cab from the airport for the flat rate advertised at the airport to the city. It was a wild ride to say the least! Would never try to drive there! We bought tickets for the Hop on/off Tour bus, which was very convenient. Had planned to take this bus to the cruise terminal but decided on taxi instead. We just had too much luggage to haul around! Overall we had a great stay and would stay again.!

"Central Location in Athens"
This is the second time I have stayed here, the first being 6 years ago. It's in a great location for everything most people would want to do, the area is quiet and the staff is very good. A concierge type lady visits your table at the included breakfast and helps plan your days activitiesmornanything else you might have a question about. I mentioned that one if the bathroom lights was burned out and it got replaced that day. The breakfasts are very good too.

The hotel was in a wonderful location from which to explore the area near the Parthenon, and enjoying a late night cocktail from the rooftop patio was an nice bonus. The place is clean and welcoming and certainly filled the bill for an affordable hotel in a convenient location. The rooms were not large, but didn't need to be and were clean. The staff that we encountered .were helpful and friendly and our airport cab was prompt at the requested time I would recommend it for a functional affordable hotel in Athens

"Hermes hotel good location small rooms."
Hermes hotel has an ideal location in the heart of the Plaka region of Athens. You are in close walking distance to the sights and shopping. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms themselves are small with small firm beds and the elevator is only suitable for 2 - 3 people with out suitcases.

"Attractive, comfortable, centrally-located"
My family and I (including children) loved this centrally-located hotel. It has a nice lobby-lounge where it was comfortable to sit, and its roof garden has a view of the Acropolis. The staff was very helpful regarding local attractions and activities. The hotel is not luxurious, but it's quite attractive. For people looking for comfortable, reasonably-priced accommodations, this is a great choice.

We really had no complaints about this outstanding, medium-sized hotel in the heart of Athens.

"Great hotel for center of Athens"
The hotel is very clean and well maintained. Is located convenient to central Athens activities...Acropolis, museum, Parliament Building, Syntagma Square, etc. VERY small elevator but it works! Nice afternoon set up for tea, coffee, cookies. Free wifi all over. Nice young woman came to each table at breakfast to help with travel questions. Encouraged us to take the train out to National Museum. Patiently explained how the procedure worked. We did it! Also showed us how to ride the X bus to airport for 5E instead of taking taxi for 50E! We did that with no problems. Easy walk from hotel to bus stop. Good eating places and shopping nearby. Big breakfast with eggs. Room rather small but beds were comfy. We would definitely stay there again. All the desk helpers were excellent.

"Interesting aroma"
I used Hotel Hermes as a stop over whilst travelling on from the Greek Islands to the UK on business. After a long day and jouney due to flight delays and stormy weather I arrived at the hotel with relief. Check-in was swift and professional however I found my room to be disappointing. Not due to furnishing or comfort although the room was compact it was the inner bathroom that had an interesting underlying aroma of sewage and when the bedroom window was open (I am unable to have the AC on as its triggers my asthma) I could hear the beats of the local night club even mid-week. An interesting night sleep then proceeded.

"Ideal for a family stay in Plaka"
We stayed 4 nights in mid April 2015. Arrived very early at the hotel due to early flight and zero traffic from the airport on Easter Sunday. Our 2 rooms weren't immediately available but the hotel invited us to breakfast in the dining room whilst our rooms were prepared and which we were able to access from about 9:30 am. We had an interconnecting family room which consisted of 2 adjacent twin rooms with a partition and another door separating them from rest of the corridor thereby allowing the our individual rooms to be left open yet secure. We particularly liked the helpful staff who even roamed the breakfast room each morning offering help with planning daily sightseeing. We booked a full day excursion through them. Breakfast was compact but very good with plenty of choice. The location of the hotel was very good in Plaka with only a few minutes walk to get to either Syntagma square, dining and shopping areas, or the tourist areas near the Acropolis. Only downside was narrow footpaths and generally untidy streets with rubbish, graffiti, and dog droppings. Hotel itself was clean but lift was tiny and roof garden didn't have view to Acropolis but sister hotel down the street does have very nice Acropolis view from its roof garden.

"Ok Hotel"
On the day of our reservation we have arrived late at night at the hotel there was no usher to welcome us or to help us with our luggage. The reception staff was not welcoming. Our room that was given to us was not secure. The door of our room was not locking properly. This made it not secure any one could have opened it with a single push. We have mentioned it to the reception staff and they told us they will try to have someone to fix it the next day. The hotel staff (reception) did not even offer us another room in the meantime. There was no apology anything. We were very disappointed. It took tem two days to fix the situation.

I stayed at the Hermes for 3nights with a friend recently. Being older ladies we required a central location & this hotel was perfect, within easy & safe walking distance from all the historic sights, museums & Syntagma square. Also central to flea markets & upmarket shopping & great eating places.The co-owned Plaka hotel nearby was welcoming for a rooftop view of the Acropolis & evening drinks around sunset as the lights switched on. The staff were all fabulous with helpful advice & suggestions. Breakfast was plentiful & varied each day. The rooms & lounging area were very clean.

We arrived at the hotel at 12pm, just in time for check-in, however, we were told by the reception that the rooms are full and were asked to go to the sister hotel or otherwise wait until evening time. We were tired from our overnight flight and wanted to use the bathroom and hence, we went to the sister's hotel which looked older. The one that we booked had a bathtub but the sister's hotel did not have a bathtub and it was situated slightly further away. However, the reception staff and were helpful and polite.
