“Perfect for a business trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

The hotel is situated in a residential area, very close to the Acropolis. Very importantly, also very close (walking distance) to the Acropolis metro station. Very helpful staff, comfortable and clean rooms. The terrace is rather basic, but offers a splendid view, in particular of the Partenon. The street where the metro station is located (Makrigianni) has a lot of low-cost restaurants.

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.

Room Tip: I recommend a room with a view of the Acropolis.

The location can't be beat, right next to Acropolis Museum, Acropolis, shopping, subway etc. Rooms are a bit Spartan (pun intended). Internet was a bit slow (mine was included), but I didn't go to Athens to spend time on Internet, View from the top floor was incredible (see pictures). Would use it again. By the way, don't believe all the stuff you see on the news about riots etc., Athens are an incredible and safe place to visit: I have spent there a week and saw one small demonstration when I went to see Change of Guards near the Parliament.

The hotel was very decent and the staff took good care of us. The walls were a bit thin so that we could hear the alarm that the people in the room next to us put. If you are sensitive to noises, bring your earplugs. Room service was free of fee so that was nice.
The Jacuzzi cost us 5 euros for 15 mins of use and has a nice view of the Acropolis.
Their buffet breakfast is amazing and, even though I like to sleep in, I would get up just to have it.

The only downside was the internet. As we had the winter offer, it was free for us but I think it is about 10 euros for 24 hours. I would definitely not buy it if it is not in the package ! It took me 3 hours to check facebook, gmail and hotmail because it kept on cutting before giving me the chance to log in. A nightmare. I am the kind of person to check the internet 15mins per day but this was highly frustrating.

The location was amazing too ! I would recommend this hotel but maybe not to young people who plan their trip as they go, as the internet would not be available for them.

Room Tip: The rooms with view on the Acropolis are noisy because of an elementary school.

Thank you for your time to share your feedback . It is wonderful to hear that you have enjoyed the location, the views from the Herodion Hotel, our home made breakfast as well as the services offered from our staff. We are interested for your personal view about the room accoustics and will investigate further, since we have installed a contemporary French wall to wall system of specialized fabric soundproof material applied in different layers for accoustic correction , comfort and ambient soundproofing. Our repeating guests usually comment for the sleep quality and privacy they feel in our rooms.
We apologize for the internet connection that temporarily faces some problems and we were unable, while on property, to solve it. We would love the opportunity to remedy your impression for this technical issue and would give us the chance to have you back in our hotel soon. Please stay in touch via Facebook so we can offer you our best rates for your next stay including a free of charge fully operating internet. Take care until then!
P.S. The 24 hrs internet charge is 5 euros.

Stayed in the Herodion Hotel for 3 days. A well cared and maintained hotel with lots of personal touches. Upon arrival the staff was most helpful in accomodating us in our room.
The reception areas were very tastefully decorated and clean and so was our room.
Breakfast was very good and the service by the friendly staff was excellent.

I have visited Athens in many occasions and have stayed in various hotels ranging from cheaper ones to the most expensive. I must say that the Herodion can easily boast that it has the closest and most impressive views of the Parthenon. On a summer's night sitting on the roof terrace sipping my favourite drink I feel that I can reach out and touch the ancient monument!! Wow
The terrace also has a jacuzzi which was relatively recently added to its features.
Last but not least this hotel's location is excellent, being beside the new Acropolis Museum and a stone's throw away from the metro station, and the pedestrianised streets leading to Plaka .

Room Tip: Choose rooms at the rear part of the building which have fantastic views of the Acropolis.

We chose the \herodion due to its location which is directly under the Acropolis. The hotel was adequate for our needs although not luxurious. The breakfast was great as were the staff who served it. The bathrooms could do with updating.

Wonderful location, walking distance to Acropolis and new Acropolis Museum, Plaka area, shopping and other tourist attractions. Comfortable hotel with clean rooms, in quiet area. Nice breakfast with wide variety. Accommodating staff. We stayed at hotel at beginning of trip and returned at end of our trip. Would definitely recommend Hotel Herodion.
