Very conveniently located to the Acropolis, plaka, good restaurants etc. They were able to ck us in earlier - breakfast was wonderful, hotel was clean, and the staff were very helpful with directions, getting taxis, etc. Will stay here again!

Nice & clean hotel but seriously problematic staff. The door of the room was broken and our friends couldn't enter in the room and the man receptionist was watching football on the hotel living room, with his excuse that he had time off at the moment, and the poor girl at the recept was alone didn't know what do to and he is still watching his football match...and all these took one hour and more.

Excellent location in the heart of Syntagma Square location (also known as Plaka), helpful staff, clean and comfortable and very good value. Nothing to fault at all. Sister hotel (Hotel Plaka) has a lovely roof garden.

Great modern hotel very centrally located in the Plaka area, close by to restaurants, cafes, shopping and most importantly all the tourist sites! Lovely clean spacious rooms. Great buffet breakfast every morning. Free wifi. And the best part, we checked out in the morning but were not flying until the evening... so after walking around during the summer heat, we were able to come back to collect our bags and await our departure in the air-conditioned lobby area, with free tea & coffee, access to the wifi and plenty of books and magazines - there was even access to a bathroom downstairs.

Stayed for 4 nights with a friend in a twin room. Very clean, friendly staff, all-you-can-eat breakfast, brilliant location and good price. Couldn't have been better for our stay in Athens. Would visit again.

We picked this hotel for its cheap prices and good reviews and it did not disappoint. It's in a very good location in the centre of Athens, and very easy to find if you are coming to Athens by the Metro train. The room was clean, the staff were friendly, breakfast was very tasty and the shower was powerful which is lovely after a long day of sight seeing! The roof terrace at the sister hotel has a stunning view and we spent an hour or so there with a little bottle of wine we had brought with us, enjoying some February sunshine. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

The location is amazing. It is right in the center of Plaka. You are close to the shops and to many famous sights. The room is a bit tiny, and our bed could have been more comfortable, which is why I have removed a star. However, the breakfast was great, lots of different options to choose from and the reception is very polite.

We had a delightful stay at Hermes. Our room was great. The staff is so nice and accommodating and goes out of their way to make your stay pleasant, we were sad to say goodbye. The breakfast was delicious and is quite a grand spread. They also have complimentary cookies in the lobby the entire day. The location is excellent and we were able to walk to the Acropolis, the Agora, Syntagma Square. There are several streets nearby for shopping. It is also well connected to the airport and we took public transit. Great value.

I do not know how many times I stayed at this hotel, but only for its location the rest come second. Staff are nice the breakfast is great the location as I have already mentioned superb. I will definitely return in the near future.

Very good hotel. Very nice people working in the hotel. It's near all the attractive places in Athens. I'm sure I'll come again and I'll recommend it to all my .friends The rooms are clean and very pleasant
