“Friendly and Walk Everywhere!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2012

We stayed at the Hermes upon arrival into Athens. Easy access from the metro and once we checked in the staff at the front desk pointed us in the right direction of dinner!

Room was clean and very nice. I was definitely impressed with the breakfast the next morning and the staff on hand to get you going in the right direction for your city exploring! We walked from the hotel to everything. Easy access to Syntagma Square/jump on-jump off tour/Acropolis and restaurant row.

We knew of the strikes going on in the city and the last day we were there the taxis were on strike but the hotel staff arranged for our transport to the port. (We booked out of Rafina instead of Piraeus...which we would probably do different next time) I definitely enjoyed the Hermes!

Situated in an excellent place, so there is no need to take a taxi or public transport, because you are in city center. Beautiful design, and very good prices.

Located in the Plaka district--a traditional old section of Athens--the Hermes Hotel is within walking distance of the Acropolis, the agora, the tomb of the unknown soldier (with its marvelous changing of the guard), Syntagma Square (with metro connections to the airport, Piraeus harbor, etc.), upscale shopping as well as more reasonably priced shops, and a plethora of restaurants. The street to the Acropolis is lined with reasonably priced tavernas where locals eat. The hotel is spanking clean, the staff helpful, breakfasts offered a range of quality choices, and the rooms small but very nice. The hotel was recommended to us by a locally based friend, and he was dead on target.

A good quality "family" hotel in the Plaka area. I needed to work in Athens as well as enjoy all the tourist "stuff".The Hermes allowed me to do both! All the staff are great - they do their job properly and are very accommodating. This place is definitely good value for money in a great location.
