Stayed for 4 nights. Room comfortable and spotlessly clean, everything worked including a/c, TV and fridge. Bathroom small but functional and nice to get good water pressure and instant hot water from shower. Biggest plus was the warm welcome and friendliness of all the staff throughout the visit. Reception always helpful and genuinely smiling faces, advisor at breakfast every morning... More

It is the sister hotel of "Plaka Hotel" and you can go to the roof top of the Plaka hotel to get a breathtaking view of the Acropolis! Especially at night it is a... More

As well as being centrally located to lots of Athens' sights and shopping, the hotel was great value. The staff were extremely helpful and were happy to research current information for us. The free breakfast was great.

This hotel is ideally located for a city break in the Plaka district of Athens. It is near to two metro stations and the buses, so a transfer from the airport is cheap and easy. The buffet breakfast offers an overwhelming choice of hot and cold options. Our room was comfortable with a queen bed, nicely decorated and had a... More

Location of the hotel is excellent, stuff is really friendly, included breakfast was very good. Room we stayed in is ready for small renovation but noting too serious, everything is very clean. I would recommend this hotel to family and friends.

We stayed one night at the Hermes hotel. Our flight to Athens arrived just before midnight, and we were staying in an apartment for the rest of the trip. There was no problem arriving late at the hotel, and the two rooms we reserved were next to each other and perfect for our needs. In the morning, we enjoyed the... More

We loved this small boutique hotel. We stayed for three nights in two connected rooms with our teenage daughters right before Christmas. The rooms are stylish, clean, and quiet. The location is wonderful - it was an easy walk to the historical sites, shopping, and restaurants. The wifi worked great and the breakfast buffet was generous. And, the staff could... More

Great location near ancient sites, very helpful staff, excellent breakfast, free tea and coffee in lounge, great value for a family room with adjoining door that included 2 bathrooms. Lovely view of Acropolis from rooftop bar. Would definitely stay there again.

We had a wonderful stay at the hotel - the staff were friendly and extremely helpful, and for the first time in our experience, there was a staff member at breakfast specifically for any help/advice needed in planning your day or to answer any questions/provide details you may need.. The location is excellent, where you can walk around for sightseeing/shopping/eating..... More
