Despite worries about the situation in Athens,we had an excellent 5day trip. This was enhanced by our hotel stay. A central position slowed easy walking to most major sights .Also lots of eating areas around. We hope to repeat the experience. Everyone was ver friendly both in and out of the hotel.
Small hotel in the historic district. Really friendly and helpful staff. Close to main transport links nd within easy reach of the main sites. Clean, comfortable room. Lovely rooftop terrace overlooking the Acropolis. Eclectic breakfast choices along with traditional, all tasty. Really happy to have chosen this hotel. Would definitely stay again.
This is a very nice hotel, well located close to the Acropolis and within a short walk of many restaurants, shops and churches. The rooftop bar with great view of the Acropolis was a lovely spot to watch the sunset and view the sights. They have a great buffet breakfast. We will definitely stay here again when next in Athens and can recommend it highly!

It's rare for me to write a review -- but I wanted to stay how much I appreciated my experience at the Hermes. The hotel is excellent value for money. It's very simple and comfortable while still being reasonably price. It was just what I hoped it would be. It has an excellent location, just a five-minute walk from Syntagma Square and the metro and bus direct to the airport. The public area in the lobby is quite large and very nicely maintained; the staff at reception and in the breakfast room were, without exception, helpful and friendly. The room was small but quiet, scrupulously clean, and very well maintained -- with excellent air conditioning. Breakfast had a good selection of traditional Greek and Continental food.
Of course, as a two-star hotel, there are a few limitations, but none made the stay any less enjoyable: one morning, the breakfast room was quiet crowded; the other two mornings, we had the place to ourselves; there wasn't an armchair in the room, but there was a desk chair; Internet service did "dip in and out"; and the roof garden was quiet small with a limited view.
There's one additional comment: I noticed an announcement in the elevator to "have a drink the Hotel Plaka", a "sister hotel" a few minutes walk away. I'd rarely think of dropping into another hotel for a drink, but I did this time. Believe me, you must go! The hotel is only a few minute's walk, and the roof deck has an extraordinary view of the Acropolis, especially in late afternoon.
"Nice hotel, close to all attractions in Athens. "
Spent one night here. Hotel was clean with very friendly and helpful staff. Room was large and beds were very comfortable. it was also clean. The restaurant on the 6th floor was fantastic and has a great view of the Acropolis. Will defently stay here for more than one night next time I'm back in Athens.
Right next to the most of the attractions, good view from the balcony of the Acropolis, very friendly and helpful staff and clean rooms. For what you are paying for, it is good value. Drawback is no breakfast, but good restaurants nearby.

Great place if you want reasonable price, excellent location & just want a clean place to sleep at night. Rooms are very small - barely enough room for the bed, but that was ok w me because I wanted to spend all my time exploring sights.
This hotel was very conveniently located in the heart of Plaka, 10 minutes' walk to the Acropolis, the metro stations at Syntagma and Monastiraki and close to numerous cafes and restaurants. It is a small hotel with friendly, helpful staff, the room was comfortable and the breakfast, included in the price, was perfectly adequate. A few doors from the hotel there was a newly opened museum showing life in Athens in the 1960s with animated models, well worth a visit and offering a discount to Nefeli customers.

Quaint and touristy, Athens’ oldest residential quarter sits in the shadow of the Acropolis. Plaka’s narrow cobbled streets are lined with bougainvillea-clad neoclassical mansions, souvenir shops and pseudo-traditional tavernas, some with live music. A village atmosphere prevails, despite the crowds. Close to all the top sights, it makes the best base for a short stay.
