“A great Hotel by the Acropolis”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014

I have recently stayed at the hotel with a little group (total of 12 people) between the 9th and the 13th of January.

From the very begining, the service was just fantastic no less. The main purpose of our visit was visiting athens finest music clubs and the hotel crew was very helpfull with the reservation - efficient, quick and kind. I worked for a very known and luxurios hotel in Jerusalem and when I see this level of service, I can defintly say that it is unusual.

The hotel itself is well located, very close to the Acropolis and a few very central touristic streets. We didn't use the public transportation, but I saw a train station les than five minutes walk from the hotel.

The breakfast (included in the price) is very nice and includes fresh squizzed orange juice, fresh croissants and great greek yogurt.

The public areas are well renovated and very pleasent. The rooms are very clean and for our needs, but you should know that they are very practical and not to big or luxurios but again, they are really great for the avarage urban tourist.

I visit athens every winter in the last years and I think that this hotel is a great option and probably the biggest value for money hotel that I saw in Athens.

Room Tip: I stayed in a standart room on the first floor which is headed to the street. The windows are great...

My wife and I last visited Athens just over 3 years ago. The hotel we stayed in was very well located (near the Acropolis) but pretty average, so this we wanted to try another hotel in a similar location. It was our good fortune to choose the Herodion. We can say, without a shadow of doubt, that we would not now want to stay anywhere else when in Athens.

The location could not be bettered: right next to the Acropolis Museum and with views of the Acropolis from our room and from the roof garden. It was also very quiet.

The room was comfortable, well-equipped and very clean. Downstairs, the common areas were attractively laid out and decorated and, again, very clean.

Breakfast was a veritable feast: it set you up for the whole day!

But what really makes this hotel special is its staff. Without exception they were all friendly, courteous and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble - for example if a you wanted a drink which was not on the menu they would simply ask you how you wanted it and make it for you. Similarly, the personal attention we received when making enquiries about Athens was exceptional. For example, we asked for recommendations of good restaurants which were off the tourist trail. Rather than just reeling off a list of names we were asked what we were looking for and given a number of suggestions tailored to our prefences, all which proved to be perfect and just what we were looking for.

In short, we feel this hotel is a 5* choice and we would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone.

just blocks from the subway and a roof top view of the Acropolis, this is a great hotel. I enjoyed the roof-top (bar and food service available.) I was traveling with a group of friends so we relaxed and took in the view.

Room Tip: I ended up with a garden view room, which was good but wished I would have had a view of the acropol...

A very nice hotel, and it is centrally located with a wonderful view at the Akropolis; an excellant service, there is a little restaurant, where you can eat different dishes, if you don´t want to go out after a long day of sightseeing

My wife and I have stayed at the Herodion hotel three times over recent years. That alone must speak for itself. However in fairness, I feel that I must make further comment. Our most recent stay was for 8 nights over Christmas 2013. Nothing has changed at the hotel except for the better. The staff are just as friendly and helpful, the rooms were exceptionally clean. If you get up from the breakfast table hungry, then I must say it would be your own fault. The food and drink are really excellent, the coffee being the finest I have tasted in any hotel from around the world. and there have been a lot of them. Finally, I would like to add my thanks to the management and staff at this excellent hotel. for making our stay in Athens a stay to remember.

We spent a night in Athens on the way back from the Sporades in early January 2014 and stayed at the Herodion. The location is very convenient from the airport, being close to the Akropoli metro station, and at the same time spectacular. We had a view of the illuminated Parthenon from our comfortable room. Breakfast was good as well.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view to Acropolis.
