Just got back from Herodion. Virtually next to the Acropolis Museum in lovely district. Easy walking to Plka and Monesteraki districts. This well maintained hoteel has a roof with comfortable seats offering superb views across the few hundred yards to the Acroplois and Parthenon. We spent some lovely evenings with a bird's eye view washed down with Ouzo. The roof garden was virtually empty and the luxury of the hotel's position made it a highlight of the visit.
Good restaurants, a handy booth opposite the main door and the quality of local architecture made our stay an absolute joy. Most if not all rooms have a balcony (and although there's a school yard opposite) ideal for balmy evening and more Ouzo. The hotel is well appointed and breakfasts are superb with English and continental breakfasts and lashings of local delicacies and fruit. The bathrooms are, perhaps a tiny bit on the tired side, but have everything needed. The staff were incrtedibly attentive and proffered help and advice at all times.
It is hard to fault the hotel. It offers greta value and is ideal for most of the sites. Highly recommended indeed!
