A decent place to stay within convenient walking distance of the Acropolis and Syntagma Square. Rooftop garden has lovely night views of the illuminated Parthenon. Breakfast included a wide variety of healthy items like yogurt and tomatoes and cereal. If you have an early departure they will arrange for a limited breakfast.

The hotel location was excellent; the street is quiet but close to everything. We walked to everything we wanted to see in Athens. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful and we enjoyed the breakfast and the tea and water in the lobby throughout the day. The WiFi was spotty, which may be a concern to a business traveler.

We only stayed 1 night, so as to have a quick tour of Athens during high season. Staff very helpful, comfortable beds, clean, nice balcony & great location. In principle, I would say good quality for money [~80Eur/night], but breakfast not convincing, and furniture will have to be upgraded soon.

It's located in centar of Athens near Ermou Street and Syntagma square, very good choose if you go for city trip because in distance of 5 min. walking you can take the hop on hop off bus. We were on our way to summer holidays and we visited Athens in late August, but I recommend if you can choose when... More

We stayed for three nights at the end of May. We arrived late at night, after 2am, and were welcomed by the check-in clerk who had the room Keys and everything already prepared so that check-in took 30 seconds. The hotel is ideally located in the plaka quarter with easy access to pretty much everything on foot and two subway... More

The Hermes is about a half hour drive from the airport, but it's worth it to be close to everything you want to see. Be advised that the taxi rates double or more at night from the 35 Euro rate during the day. We spent 3 nights at the Hermes and loved it. The rooms are basic, no telephone or... More

The best thing about the Hermes Hotel is the location - literally right in the middle of everything you would want to see in Athens. The rooms are very clean (serviced daily) and the staff are all very helpful and all speak fluent English. Don't miss out on going to the roof of their sister hotel, The Plaka, to look... More

The staff were very friendly and helpful at check-in. When we got to the room, we found a small bottle of Greek wine and some baklava with the management's compliments. Very nice touch! You can literally get anywhere from this hotel and there are plenty of places to shop/eat in the vicinity. We enjoyed lounging on the rooftop, with the... More

I booked quite late for a one night stay in Athens on our way home to the UK fromthe Cyclades. I could only find one hotel that could offer interconnecting rooms for 2 teens and adults, and this was it. Good central location in quiet streets (aesthetically suffering a bit from the riots!) Very comfortable rooms, exellent and helpful staff.... More
