I don't think I ever had a better experience. This hotel was great, the staff incredibly helpful, rooms were spotless, and breakfast was delicious. I got a bad cold while there, and the pharmacies were all closed that day (apparently most close Wednesday afternoon), but the lady in the front desk was very helpful and found a pharmacy for me...

We were delighted with the Hermes Hotel. Its knowledgeable staff members provided us with all the information we needed, while the room was comfortable and attractive and the breakfast included a vast variety of fresh and tasty foods. A staff member circulates during breakfast to answer any questions guests may have about planning their day, and the people at the... More

i've just come back from a 3 night stay at the Hermes Hotel in Athens and it was wonderful. The hotel is perfectly situated for getting round all the big sights. It's a leisurely 10 minutes stroll from Syntagma Square and the train station and about 10 mins from central Plaka and Monastiraki (both of these areas are excellent for... More

Had a two night stopover in Athens, mainly to visit the Acropolis and the new Museum. The Hotel within walking distance as it is for the Plaka. The Hotel was clean and comfortable. The room was comfortable and although the bathroom was "cosy" it was all clean and functional. The sound-proofing was good. The breakfast was excellent. The staff were... More

All the staff were helpful and friendly. The location made it easy to access sites such as Temple of Zeus, Hadrian's Arch and the Acropolis and close to restaurants and shopping. Breakfast was exceptional with a mix North American and Greek food. Our boys (11 & 6) ate very well which helped with all the walking around we did. We... More

The rooms have a balcony and you can view the Acropolis from the roof. The breakfast was the best part for me. There was too much to choose, I could have eaten all day. We ate enough to skip lunch, which saved us $$$. We were very close to the Acropolis, walked to it the first morning. The staff was... More

Having stayed in many hotels in Athens and around the world, I rate this hotel as exceptional based not only on its room facilities, decoration, and location but mainly on the staff's behaviour and the welcoming atmosphere they create. The rooms I stayed both times, were quiet as I had asked, very clean and simple but tastefully decorated, very bright,... More

Travelled from Edinburgh for a weeks stay. From the moment we arrived we knew that we had made a good choice of hotel. We got the bus from the airport to Syntagma and the hotel was very easy to find from there. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms clean and comfortable and the breakfast buffet was an... More
