Original hotel wasn't available (rooms were damaged by schoolies), so they arranged for us to stay at their partner hotel - Hermes Hotel. Very nice stay. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was your typical european fare. Very good location for exploring the Plaka district and the Acropolis. Highly recommended.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hermes Hotel Athens

Heavenly Holiday at Hermes!


Had the pleasure of staying here for 4 nights before a cruise of the Islands and loved it. Great location, w/in walking to the Acropolis and many cute tavernas and shops. Great prices also and friendly staff. Rooms are boutique-style with private balconies and plush red-velvet chaise-lounges, bathrooms are private all marble, naturally with great supply of towels. Elevator is a one-person-but what do you expect-it's Greece! Breakfast incl'd in rate. Very fond memories and will come back to Hermes next time I am in Athens! TOP NOTCH!

Absolutely fine


Clean, good bathroom, great location for the Plaka. Would definitely stay there again.

Forget This One


Forget This one?

Nicely refinished rooms, but small. Good location near Plaka.

Terribly managed. Came back in the evening to find beds unmade and dirty towels still in place. Manager. "What can I do? Staff has gone home." (Back to his magazine.") Can you at least get me clean towels?" "No. who would watch the desk?" "Can you direct me to the laundry room so I can get towels?" "Oh, no!" "Can you switch my wife and I to a different room?" "Oh, no." "Wht not?" "Well, um, the air conditioner might not work!"

Room amenities: One plastic drinking cup for two people. One small wood chair to sit on.

This place is best avoided. Nearby are several attractive hotels which will probably be superiour.

Good location


The best part about this hotel was the location. It is very central and less than a five minute walk from the airport bus and very central to most all sites. The staff were generally nice however would not allow a late check out (even an hour late). The room I stayed in had a balcony but it was shared by two other rooms and did not have a view. But it was very nice to have the balcony. The rooftop garden did not have view either. Rooms with balconies are very small. I traveled alone but if I was with someone it would have been too small, there's no room for two suitcases. The rooms without balconies are large enough for two people. Overall, I thought it was a little overpriced for what it offered 115 euros/night. My last two nights I stayed at another hotel for only 50 Euros and it was quite comparable though the location wasn't as central.

Excellent accommodations


I enjoyed staying here. The hotel is centrally located and is well appointed. Staff was very accommodating. Rooms are well designed.

Great place to stay in Athens.

Lovely Choice.


Hermes Hotel was a welcomed rest after two busy weeks of traveling. The room was spotless, the bathroom facilities were modern and Western, the beds cozy, and the staff was helpful. The breakfast was not anything special, but it was still better than most we had in other towns. And the location was excellent--an easy walk to the Acropolis, great restaurants, major shopping streets, and major bus stops for getting to and from the airport.

Hermes hotel,great location


I stayed at the Hermes hotel, Athens for one night in October 2004 and then as it was fully booked, moved to its sister hotel, the Arion for one further night. I found the Hermes extremely pleasant. It is a modern hotel, with a great location for sightseeing and shopping in central Athens. The decoration of my room was modern and the bathroom marble. Everything was extremely clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there or at one of its sister hotels again.

Great Hotel!


We stayed at the Hermes Hotel last weekend (end of October) and loved it. The room was very nice...chic walnut panelling, a balcony w/ 2 chairs and a table, and excellent bathrooms. Our only less-than-satisfied area was that breakfast wasn't anything special (ie. toast and jam). The location was excellent but not at all noisy. Staff were always helpful with our questions, professional, and flexible. I'd definitely recommend this hotel and I'll stay there again.

One very satisfied guest


I just got back from Athens with two other friends and we stayed at the Hermes Hotel located in a quiet street in the Plaka area. Room was very nice and clean, with properly working air conditioner, cable TV and marble tiled bathroom. Only complaint was not enough hanging space for towels, and that half glass partition in the tub (instead of shower curtains and popular in European hotels) that make it difficult to shower without getting the entire bathroom floor wet. Breakfast, which was included in our room rate, was nothing special -- no fruits, unless you count those chunks in the jam. Overall, we were very satisfied with this hotel. Close to the Acropolis, the flea market, Syndagma Square and the Ermou shopping area. Walking distance to Omonia Square, Psirri and Monasteraki area. Lots of Greek tavernas and restaurants serving international cuisines. I would go back to this hotel if I ever visit Athens again.

Good location--lovely bathrooms


This hotel was in a great location on the edge of the Plaka, but not on a noisy street. It was clean and had brand new marble bathrooms.

... us at the port and after hellos and introductions we headed off for the day.

We first went to the plaka, which given the early hour was mostly still shut. However, there are always places to enjoy an espresso or a mocha and that is just what we did. The walk around the plaka was so quiet and peaceful,( it was not like that on our second ...

Friday the eleventh was my first full day in Athens. I woke up early to go to the acropolis. My roommates beat me out, but I met them at the gate because they took the long way around. Someone didn't listen to the receptionist at check-in. Tickets were for the acropolis (the whole hill area where there were theatres, temples, and monuments), the Parthenon (the actual temple to Athena at the top) and another temple up there, the ancient agora, the Roman ...
