Located between syntagma and monastiraki makes it a breeze to get to most sights. Great service from the concierge staff too. Having a staff come by during breakfast to enquire about our plans and offer advice on travel plans was certainly a surprising change!

Everything was as expected. Exceptionally nice staff. Room is a good size, loved the separate beddings. The colors of the toom was byzantine style. I was so happy when I arrived to see that there was a small elevator as I had injured my ankle few days before. Breakfast has everything you need plus a coffee machine for espresso and... More

This hotel is located in a small street a few minutes away from the Parthenon, and on the back of Syntagma square where a lot of shops are to be found. The low rate makes it very interesting and the courtesy of the personnel is the icing on the cake. Wifi signal was quite weak. Breakfast well assorted with local... More

I booked Hermes hotel for three nights this month and i think it was a great decision. The hotel is very centrally located, about 300 mts from Syntagma square and about 15 minutes walking from all the attractions. You can take an airport shuttle bus for 5 euro per person and reach syntagma square and from there you can walk... More

Hotel was in a perfect location for visiting Athens. Room was spacious, clean and the breakfast was abundant. Front desk staff really welcoming. Will definitely stay here again. The view from the roof of their sister hotel is worth taking in. Go up and grab a relaxing glass of wine and enjoy the view.

Perfect location near to acropolis,square and all other major attractions. Safe at night. Pleasant staff esp.Mathew who works at night and Maria @breakfast room. They go out of the way to help. Bathroom was good with good water pressure. They keep your luggage even after you check out for few days. Had great time there.

If you would like to stay in Plaka area, and want it to be near to shopping streets, easy to find dining, easy to access archeological attractions and above all, you don't want to pay for premium hotel, you will have to choose Hermes Hotel. You may take metro to Syntagma Square and walk to Hermes, which is not difficult... More
