Enjoyed a three night stay here with my 10 year old daughter. Ten minute walk from acropolis metro station and has fantastic views of the Parthenon and new acropolis museum. Easy walking distance to main sights in Athens such as Agora, Acropolis, Panathenaic stadium, Hadrian's Arch, Temple of Zeus. Easy to venture further afield using metro.
Our room was extremely comfortable and well equipped. Bathroom was very clean with tons of piping hot water (bath and shower). The beds were very comfortable and the room on the first floor at the front of the hotel was very quiet, special attention seems to have been given to this, we heard very little noise anywhere in the hotel. Breakfast was fresh, well presented and varied, and the freshly squeezed orange juice was frequently replenished and delicious.We ate in the hotel restaurant every night which was very quiet and relaxed with excellent food and very reasonably priced. It seemed underused and I would absolutely recommend it.
Staff were helpful and polite without exception and a minor problem with the bathroom sink was sorted promptly and without fuss.
The only improvement that I could suggest would perhaps be to offer free WiFi, at least in the main reception area as this would really help stay in touch with loved ones at home.
With any break in Athens the main attraction of course is the city itself and not where you are staying. Having said that, the Herodion certainly contributed to a wonderfully memorable trip and I would wholeheartedly recommend the hotel to all.
