We travelled here in February 2011 and have nothing but praise for Hermes Hotel. I booked the trip as a surprise birthday present for my boyfriend and the staff were very helpful when I emailed them to clarify some details, as this was the first time I had booked a holiday myself. We also got a deal on their website where the third night's stay was free.
We got to the hotel fine following the directions on their website and were checked in quickly by the desk. We were immediately impressed by the style and quality of the décor and the cleanliness of the Hotel for the price. Things only got better in our room, we had a double with a large balcony, solid wood floors and solid marble bathroom! Everything was very clean, fresh, comfortable, neat and well presented. The whole Hotel had the same feel and a lovely smell of clean linen, our room was cleaned to a high standard daily. We had a desk, TV, suitcase stand and plenty of storage and spare bedding in the wardrobes as well as a complimentary safe for our valuables.
The location was great for getting to all the sights, the website says you can walk to them which I didn't believe looking at a map but it's true! The Hotel is off a main street and we found it easy to navigate from here to major sights and attractions using a simple guidebook, not to mention lots of places to eat and streets to explore. The Hotel breakfast is slightly smaller than you might expect but we always seemed to leave full, there is a good variety and it's all nice food. We also found the lady who visited our table to offer tourist information very friendly and helpful and a great idea for the Hotel to look after their guests.
We have nothing but fond memories of our trip and the Hotel is a major factor in this. It is a compact, boutique, very clean and comfortable hotel and we found it a very special addition to our trip. In booking other trips since we have been amazed that we got such a gem on our budget! We met a family staying at the same time who were also very happy with what they had found. Luckily, my boyfriend had a wonderful time and was also very impressed, we are always saying how much we would like to go back and would recommend this Hotel very highly to anyone considering a trip to Athens. We wish they had them everywhere!
