I highly recommend this hotel and will definitely return on my next trip to Athens.
I had the pleasure to stay at Hotel Herodion with my boyfriend over the Christmas vacation for a week. The hotel lived up to its promise of offering the best views of the Parthenon from a hotel in all of Athens, which I enjoyed from both the rooftop terrace as well as the balcony in my room. Although it was too cold for me to use the rooftop hot tubs, I look forward to returning sometime in the summer to savour the experience. One of my favourite features of the hotel is the dining area, which has an indoor outdoor feel with a beautiful tree in the middle that extends out from indoors and plants that surround the glass-extension like room. Perfect for enjoying a coffee to start the day.
The location could not be better for visiting the ancient site of the Acropolis and Plaka, the old historical neighbourhood of Athens—a mere stone’s throw away. There is also a metro station nearby, and taxis are also a very cheap and easy way of getting around. Each time I requested a taxi from reception it arrived within minutes.
I have no complaints about the rooms or the service, which were carefully maintained and staff were consistently attentive and welcoming. The hotel is a family-run business, delivering the type of special care that one can expect over the more impersonal hotel chains.
