“Holiday to Athens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

This hotel was a great find as it is very central to visit the main sites in Athens. This place was clean, modern and the service was excellent. The views of the Acropolis were stunning and the hotel was situated right next to the brilliant 'New Acropolis Museum'.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the Parthenon

Yet again the Herodion and the wonderful staff made our stay in Athens awesome! It was my birthday this time. For 10 years we have had the pleasure of staying with them in the central location (close to the metro, Plaka, and Acropolis) with comfortable beds, clean rooms, fabulous views. I would highly recommend this hotel again and again. Thank you!

Room Tip: When booking ask if they have a room with a view of the Acropolis...if not, the views from the roof...

During the last 12 years I keep on coming every year to Athens and I always stay at Herodion Hotel.
The hotel is located at a very nice and quiet area, near the most interesting attractions and very close to Acropoli metro station.But the most amazing thing is the warm and friendly staff who is always helpful, day or night.
No doubt, it's the best choise in Athens!

Enjoyed a three night stay here with my 10 year old daughter. Ten minute walk from acropolis metro station and has fantastic views of the Parthenon and new acropolis museum. Easy walking distance to main sights in Athens such as Agora, Acropolis, Panathenaic stadium, Hadrian's Arch, Temple of Zeus. Easy to venture further afield using metro.
Our room was extremely comfortable and well equipped. Bathroom was very clean with tons of piping hot water (bath and shower). The beds were very comfortable and the room on the first floor at the front of the hotel was very quiet, special attention seems to have been given to this, we heard very little noise anywhere in the hotel. Breakfast was fresh, well presented and varied, and the freshly squeezed orange juice was frequently replenished and delicious.We ate in the hotel restaurant every night which was very quiet and relaxed with excellent food and very reasonably priced. It seemed underused and I would absolutely recommend it.
Staff were helpful and polite without exception and a minor problem with the bathroom sink was sorted promptly and without fuss.
The only improvement that I could suggest would perhaps be to offer free WiFi, at least in the main reception area as this would really help stay in touch with loved ones at home.
With any break in Athens the main attraction of course is the city itself and not where you are staying. Having said that, the Herodion certainly contributed to a wonderfully memorable trip and I would wholeheartedly recommend the hotel to all.

I'd recommend this hotel if you want a central location, within walking distance of all the major central attractions.

Approx 500 metres from Akropoli Metro, we zoomed by metro from the airport into Syntagma, one stop to Akropoli then a short walk to the hotel. From leaving the airport, to sitting in a bar after checking in and freshening up - 90 mins.

Modern facilities, clean room, excellent hot water in the shower. We had a street view rather than a view of the Akropoli, but you don't spend long in a bedroom when in a city like Athens.

Great staff, very helpful and knowledgeable with good English.

Wide tasty choices for breakfast, coffee machine isn't great, but it's free!

Alos, a great way to see the Akropoli is to sit on the roof terrace or in the hot tub!

I was recently at Herodion Hotel in Athens and i'd say we've been treated so well we would definitely come back..

I'm gonna list some downsides of the hotel, but they're very minimal that it's not really necessary..and though Herodion meets every 4 star that it has, there are details that they should probably consider..
- we didn't have bathrobes but just towels
-i happened to find dirty water on the ice cubes in the minibar
-room and bathroom was a little small (but it's just enough for a nice stay... and besides its a standard room size for any hotel in Athens, so nothing really serious about that)
-the wardrobe the carpeting and the dark green on the hallways are not really that smart for a space not so big.

:) considering all those, I wanna say that Herodion still met all our expectations and besides those few negative points, there are lots of things that has made our stay really really nice. All the personnel are nice, helpful and always smiling, the dining area is well designed and cosy (we didn't try their food though) as well as the reception area, the buffet breakfast is well served, they've got different dishes from salty to sweets to cereals and typical greek pastries, and what to say about rooftop garden and the jacuzzi area (absolutely superb!) the view of the parthenon from there at night is post-card like. Room cleaning is well done, and the area is absolutely a smart choice, there is a supermarket not far away and a convenience store just a few meters away from the hotel, the Acropolis is just a few minutes hike up, the Acropolis museum is just beside the hotel door, the metro is just a block away and the stop for the city sight seeing buses is just 50m away.. you could walk all your way to Plaka and Monesteraki areas which is a really nice stroll. we were also granted an Acropolis-view room which is really amazing, one little problem that others would encounter is the noise of the schoolchildren from the school behind the hotel but that is not until 10am which didn't really matter since we were always up before that in time in order to catch breakfast too, while during weekends that noise problem is not to be considered at all.


All in all, I'd definitely recommend Herodion to anybody and i'd definitely go back and stay there again the next time around.
