Opinion – Hotel Hermes in Athens, Greece

If you are going to travel to Athens soon, read our article about the Hermes Hotel so you can see what it offers.

For our stay in Athens, we wanted to stay in a hotel that would allow us to walk to many of the important places in the city, such as the Acropolis. The place where we stayed during the several days we spent in Athens was the Hermes Hotel, and we bring our opinion about it, did it meet our expectations? You’ll see.

Where is Hermes Hotel located?

The Hotel is located a few steps from the Monastiraki metro stop, you have to go through plenty of shops. As the hotel is located within the Plaka neighborhood, it is easy to explore the neighborhood and the archaeological sites on foot.

How is the reception and the staff?

The reception staff is friendly, you have the possibility to leave your bags, in case you want to explore more after checking out. They also have free coffee and tea during the day and speak good English and Spanish. In general, they will help you with any questions you have about the city.

How was our room?

The rooms are comfortable, clean, quite nicely decorated, enough toiletries. But the best thing is that if you stay three nights or more, which was our case the second time we went, you will be received in the room with: a complimentary bottle of wine. Wow, they really know how to win my sympathy.

The bathroom was fine with a clean sink and shower. The space was enough to take out our things. It wasn’t overflowing with space either, but it was enough. They gave us plenty of shampoo and soap.

The price

We went in winter, so the price was low compared to summer. We paid 52 euros per night. Breakfast was included.

Which facilities are present?

No complaints about the facilities, the elevator worked great, and you could access the terrace, which is a bar in the summer, from which you can see the acropolis. If you stay here don’t forget to check out the sister hotel Plaka so that they let you go up to the terrace as the views are excellent.


How was the breakfast?

Breakfast is one of the strong points of this hotel, it is VERY WELL ASSORTED. In addition, while you are having your breakfast, hotel staff comes to ask you how you are doing, and they give you tips on the visits you want to make during the day, we liked the advice very well, since we needed a plan B for the rainy days, and in one of those we had the very manager of the hotel who attended us. Very kind and simple, she got a 10.

With all this, you can start the day with a full stomach

Would we recommend this hotel?

Apart from that, we felt very comfortable and happy with our stay, the staff were always very friendly. The location, excellent. This hotel did not disappoint. Here we summarize our opinion about the Hotel Hermes in Athens.
