Athens is not the first place that springs to mind when you think about a winter holiday but it's a fantastic place to go. We stayed at the Herodian for my husbands birthday and had a wonderful time. The staff could not do enough for us and the hotel was truly welcoming. Plenty of choice at breakfast. There is a... More

We stayed on the fourth floor and as requested had a view of the acropolis which we loved, whether floodlit at night or impressive by day against the blue skies we were lucky to have for 3 days in February. The area below the window, described by another reviewer in the summer as a deserted tennis court, is in fact... More

Herodion's location couldn't be any better just next to Acropolis and Plaka. The hotel itself is very well maintained with a warm cozy atmosphere. We enjoyed sitting in the lobby/bar/restaurant sitting area next to the fireplace. Breakfast was excellent, with a good variety of food and juices. The homemade Greek yogurt was divine. The standard double room was very nice,... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in November, as part of a tour. The reviews we read at the time were not all 5* so we adjusted our expectations. But once we arrived, we were content. We never met our chambermaid but she was an angel. Desk staff were very helpful with local recommendations. Breakfast met our needs well, and... More

Dear Robin A, Thank you for such a positive feedback. It is excellent news that we surpassed your expectations. What makes me even more proud is that apart from professional service and friendly atmosphere, we all managed to convey to you sides of our culture e.g. sharing dinner is an opportunity to relax while enjoying the company of friends –...

As my taxi pulled up outside the hotel a concierge came rushing out to take my suitcase and start the check in process which was very welcome after a long trip.

I had really high hopes for this hotel as my correspondence leading up to our stay was beyond helpful. However when we arrived, everything seemed difficult. We waited for half and hour to check into our room (it was after 4pm), I wasn't able to get a hair dryer (which in the middle of winter is needed). When we decided... More

Officially check-in time is 14:00 and according to our data you checked in at 14:32, which is a bit later than anticipated -and may cause distress, so please accept my apologies.

We stayed here with a family of 5 (3 teenagers) at year end.

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighborhood Profile
Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely pedestrianized Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centerpiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
