Thank you for staying with us. Unfortunately the lobby size and corridors could be changed due to construction reasons. We are surprised to read you had a bad experience with our staff which is well known for the hospitality, help and service provided. We hope you will come back to stay with us on another future trip to Athens to have the opportunity to offer you the service we are known for.

It was conveniently located near the places we wanted to go in Athens. The breakfast was abundant and made available for our early activities. The bathroom is particularly narrow.

Good location in the Plaka but...

Pros: The location was very good, it was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful.
Although the location was good, close to the major sights, and the staff was friendly and helpful, the room itself was just a little small. Billed as a "Superior" room, it had a queen size bed, a tiny closet and a balcony (not much of a view) but the room was so small that there was literally no where to put our 2 suitcases. We were there only two nights and we made it work (we didn't unpack and moved the suitcases from the floor to the bed during the day) but any longer and you'll want more space. We could see larger rooms being cleaned and we're told these were for families. They might be a good option.

Great Hotel.

Cons: N/a
Location: This hotel is in walking distance to Acropolis.
We enjoyed our time here Hermes. They only issue was the different styled standing shower, but that was minor. The breakfast has a variety of selections. Way better than that of mykonos and santorini. The Staff was extremely helpful as well. Great recommendations to cheap eats and places to get souvenirs for great prices.

Perfect hotel in Athens

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, centrally located to all sites, close to public transportation
We arrived at Hermes Hotel with ease and the front desk gal greeted us with a big smile! Our room was available immediately and we took the SMALL elevator up to our room...it was very clean and had all the amenities we could ask for. We needed ice and the front desk gave us a bowl..not sure if they have that request often...an ice bucket would have been a plus! We were centrally located in Athens...within walking distance for ALL sites! The gal also assisted us with directions. And we also had 25 FREE minutes of internet access...a very pleasant surprise. The hotel had a lovely rooftop sitting area and we could see the Acropolis. Breakfast was excellent, but someone raved about the home fries...we didn't have any:( All in all, the hotel was a plus for our trip!

Excelent hotel for value

I found this hotel several years ago and could get a room because I always booked near to my arrival date until last year. The hotel is in an excellent location, in Plaka, where you want to be while in Athens. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is quite good. Its is very near all the good restaurants and bouzukias in Plaka, a few minutes, literally, from the Acropolis, Monasteraki, Syntagma, Ermou shopping street. I will definitely stay there in my next and any other stay in Athens, either for business or pleasure. It is just the very best value for money and it is not a 5 star hotel, which you don't need if you have all the wonderful restaurants and entertainment just a few steps away.
