The Herodion appeared to be one of the better hotels in Athens for the price and we wern't disappointed. Arriving fairly late we struggled to find a parking space close and after half an hour of searching found a spot 15 min walk away. Apart from that the location is really good. Very close to all the big historic attractions and a wide selection of bars and cafes.
We found all the staff very pleasant to deal with and always got a hello and thank you. Rooms are clean and quiet so no issues there. The roof to bar serves up some lovely Greek cuisine and one of the better meals we had during our stay.
The only issue I had was the additional charges for standard hotel facilities. There was a 5 euro charge per person to use the jacuzzi and another 5 for a bit of Internet. If these were free for guests I would have rated higher.
