We previously stayed here in 2008, and were happy. There have been changes for the better.. more choices at breakfast, a very helpful lady to answer questions and give directions at breakfast time, and cold water, tea and coffee available in the lounge area from midday until the evening. We caught the X95 airport transit bus to Syntagma square then... More

At breakfast the staff came by to help with the map and the key sights to see while we were in Athens. The breakfast was fantastic and had lots of choices. The staff worked so hard to clean up and...

Don't let your first impression of the rather unimposing appearance on a slightly Shabbat side street, this is a great place to stay...excellent location within blocks of Syntagma Square, one block from a main pedestrian shopping street, restaurants, etc. Good breakfast buffet, clean rooms and exceptionally friendly and helpful staff...especially the young ladies who visit every table in the breakfast...

Stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights. The atmosphere was welcoming from the very beginning. The rooms were impeccably clean, and the location excellent. Within walking distance of most sites including: Parliament, Temple of Zeus, Parthenon and the Acropolis museum. Also close to Monastiraki and Plaka which are very good for shopping or just strolling around. Breakfast and... More

Our stay at the Hermes Hotel was a very comfotable end to our holiday in Greece. Travelling with 3 children made it difficult to find accomodation in Athens but Hermes was fantastic as it provided us with 2 rooms with a common entrance which was perfect.
