First I thought it's a two star hotel on Expedia. We usually only stay 3 stars and up. But I couldn't find anything in the central area with nice reviews and nightly charge under €300 for two rooms. So I chose Hermes at last. What a surprise! It's actually a 3 stars with nice bedroom and very clean bathroom, a little bit small but Ok. Great service and Average breakfast. Great location: 5 minutes to Sytagma square and 10 minutes to Monastiraki area. But on a quite street. Highly recommend.
Though the immediate neighbourhood is noisy and run down, the proximity to the main attractions is great. The hotel itself is clean and well maintained, the staff friendly and efficient. It's not the most modernly furnished or the most stylish, but the beds are comfortable and unless you're planning on spending your stay in your room, that shouldn't matter! The newly opened roof terrace is a great place to chill out at the end of the day and the choice for breakfast is great too. Yes, you do have to keep your wits about you in the area around the hotel, but that's true of any big, bustling city and at no point during our week stay did we feel even remotely intimidated. This is a great, traditional Greek style budget hotel.
I stayed in this hotel for 2 weeks and I cannot fault it one bit. Room cleaned everyday, staff beyond helpful (I stayed alone for the first week and a half and then my mother joined me - staff more than happy to put an extra bed in room and mother pay the difference) Breakfast delicious. It genuinely was the best holiday of my life, Athens is incredible and the location, cleanliness and friendliness of this hotel was the cherry on top. Would recommend and can't wait to stay again.

Very nice hotel. Staff was helpful and friendly. Was only in town for the marathon, and they were very helpful in providing directions from place to place. They even adjusted the hours of breakfast so the runners could eat before we had to leave.

Great hotel, great location. Very clean room and nice bathroom. Air con worked well and we had a nice antique balcony where I say drinking wine at midnight. My balcony had a small view of acropolis. We had our 2 kids with us and they let us check in early so kids could sleep, staff helped with suitcases into elevator.
I don't do breakfast much so I did not sample. I would stay again and have recommended to friends already. I enjoyed the orange trees on the street too.
The hotel staff was amazing and I was very pleased from the service I received. Rooms would benefit from a refurbishment and the tv did not work in the room. However it worth every penny due to its locality with the tube which can take you to airport and in major places in Athens.
