Reviewed July 2, 2014

Stayed at this Hotel and thought it was great. It is basic but we knew that so all was good. Very friendly place, nice people, rooftop spa is great with good views towards the sea. Situated on the outskirts of town which was ok, not much noise, and a great place to sit and people watch in the evening. Only a 5 min walk to centre of town, and very close to the bus station if you are wanting to travel about.

Stayed at the hotel for the 1st time with friends and found it was more than amicable. The room was very basic with a small balcony and air conditioned. The bar was serving bottles of Amstel and Heineken for €1 and the lady and young girl serving were always very friendly. I would stay here again as it was very cheap and clean.

They may have had good intentions, but the place is run very weird old style way. In addition to that, they charge for everything they possibly can (In our case they even wanted to charge for the broken door handle and said that the bed got damaged because of us too).
This was our 63-day European trip and we stayed in 26 Hotels, including this one, and nothing like that happened.
Tossa de Mar was was a great place to visit, but we could not wait to checkout from Hotel Hermes. It was a stressful experience to say the least. Not recommended!

the hermes is what it is , a budget hotel but i feel that this is how its advertised so nobody should complain. its rooms are small but the beds are lovely and comfy and the rooms are cleaned promptly each morning. it is situated approx 100 metres from the bus station and about a five minute walk to the beach once you have mastered the narrow streets through Tossa. The staff are all friendly and helpful with Francesca speaking perfect english. its the perfect place for a group of friends who wanted a chilled break to sit outside and relax whilst people watching over a cold beer. Thanks again for a great stay and we'll be back next May

I stayed at the Hermes for the first time with a friend,

The hotel was very well priced for two single rooms.

The rooms themselves were very small, but I knew that from the photos.

I suspect even after seeing the size In the photos and the reality was that things were tighter than I had realised.

The bathroom was very small, and very difficult to use the sink, as the toilet was right in front , so shaving and brushing teeth was very difficult.

The shower was small, but very good water pressure and constant hot water.

The room itself was very clean, and a nice small balcony with two chairs, but my friends room was not that clean, and had sand and hairs over the floor.

The television never worked, I reported this but nothing was actually done about it.

The air conditioner was very effective.

There is no soap supplied, so remember to bring your own !

The Lady who runs the Hotel was very friendly and welcoming.

Breakfast was not included and costs €5 for a Buffett breakfast, even though there was a selection of meats, cheese and bread, I personally found it not very pleasant at all, the coffee was nasty, and the orange juice very watered down, and if you wanted breakfast you had to let the hotel know by 4:00 pm the previous day, for the rest of our stay we had breakfast at Bar Panos which was €5.25 for a delicious Cooked breakfast, which included 2 slices of toast, nice coffee and ice cool orange juice.

The hotel had a nice bar with beer at $1 a bottle.

I found charging deposits in each TV remote control and Air conditioner control of €5 each, made us feel like potential thieves, something I have never come across before.

On the whole it was very Friendly there, and cheap, and some plus points ,but would I stay again, possibly not.

Room Tip: Avoid the very small single rooms

Locationgood, beach, eating places, shopping very close, bus staion just a block away.

My room was quiet, though for those overlooking the street it can be a bit noisy.

The personnel is very helpful, warm, like family.

All services are timely and good quality.
nice roof-pool and jacuzzi, nice swimming pool in the basement.

My room was tiny, but the bathroom was almost imperial.And there was place for everything.

Room Tip: Look for rooms over the side street

Stayed here for a family holiday 7 adults and baby Oscar 10 months old we the family adopted. we have visiting Tossa de mar for the past 5 years. We called in for drinks over the past 4 years and decided to stay here as it is small family run welcoming hotel. We had 4 rooms all different sizes. Main plus for this hotel is air conditioning in rooms which we think is a most in July as it was 35 degrees and don't normally get in a one star hotel. Rooms very basic but clean and better than some 3 stars we have stayed in. We were made welcome from the moment we arrived and treat like family. There is a jazzuci on the room terrace which we used daily and a small indoor pool in the basement. We are planning to visit next year.
