“Excellent location for exploring Athens!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in late September. We had reservations at the Phillippos hotel (their sister hotel), and because of our honeymoon we were upgraded to their 4-star sister hotel around the block, the Herodion hotel.
The service was great – very helpful front desk staff who answered our many tourist questions about restaurants, walking distances to different sights, etc. They had a 24-hour check-in (we arrived around midnight after flying from the states), and even though we took a cab out around 6am to catch a ferry on our last day, they provided us with breakfast before the buffet breakfast officially began.
The location is perfect – just a few blocks from the Monastiraki metro stop, and a few minutes walk from the Acropolis and Acropolis Museum. Also about 5-10 minute walk to Plaka and just a little further to Psiri. Very central location which is why we chose to stay there. On a quiet street but nearby everything. Lots of restaurants and shops nearby as well.
Beautiful roof top bar with jacuzzi’s, overlooking the Acropolis.
The rooms were a bit small, but they had everything we needed, were very clean, quiet and we found the small room to be the case at most every hotel in Greece. If you're planning to spend a lot of time in the room, you may want to ask for one of the larger rooms (we just had the standard double room).
I would definitely recommend this hotel for the location and service.

I have stayed at this hotel several times. I really like the atmosphere of the hotel. The service level of the staff is of a very high standard. The lobby area is great if you just want to meet up with some friends or would like to have anything to eat at any time.
The breakfast is very good.
Another outstanding feature is the access to and the view from the roof terrace.
The location of the hotel is very convinient. It is walking distance to most things in central Athens. It is very close to the Akropoli metro station. You will find many restaurants and cafes in the neighbour hood.
I will be back.

Room Tip: This time I stayed on the fourth floor. My room had a big terrace.

Hotel room had a lovely view of the Acropolis. Rooms were tired but clean and comfortable. Old shower etc. Breakfast was average. Location was good. Right next to the new museum. Thought it was overpriced for what we got.

This hotel is in the best location, the rooms are comfortable and the staff are very welcoming, knowledgeable and helpful. You can gorge from the widest breakfast buffet choice I have ever seen and avoid buying lunch. Then you will have room for a "nostomotato" (delicious) meal in the rooftop restaurant, with views of the floodlit Parthenon. If, as we did, you get fed up with sight seeing and your feet are aching, a small charge allows you to relax in the outdoor Jacuzzi gazing up at the Acropolis and then you can stretch out on a lounger to dry off in the Athens sun. If you like people watching, get a room overlooking the front of the hotel, sit out on your balcony with a glass of wine (reasonably priced from the minibar) and watch the world go by. The beds are comfortable with heavenly soft pillows. If you leave your double glazed balcony window open overnight be warned that Athens kicks off before seven in the morning. We had a very relaxing and pleasant three nights at the Herodion and will definitely stay there the next time we are in Athens. PC.May

Room Tip: If you want a quieter room, overlooking the Acropolis, go for the rear. If you like to watch the wor...

The website hotel pictures match reality. Rooms are soundproofed with double-glass windows. For those who have problems on sleeping, there are rooms facing the internal patio. Rooms at the rear of the hotel have view of the Acropolis. Hotel has a perfect location, walking distance to Acropolis, Plaka, restaurants and metro.
Due to misunderstanding we have been given a room which was not matching our booking. The hotel staff has been super friendly and professional in understanding the situation. We had the chance to see different rooms and to choose the one we liked the most, without extra charges.
Apart from this slight issue, the entire stay have been just perfect. Welcoming staff at all levels, from the managers, to the receptionists, waiters/waitresses, cleaning ladies. Always ready to help you with a big smile. Breakfast has fresh fruits, typical greek specialties as well as classic international breakfast. We highly recommend this hotel.
