Reviewed 27 April 2014

This hotel has the potential to be 5/5 but they just aren't there. There are charges for ameneties most hotels include, 5 euros (per device) for Wi-Fi and I don't remember the exact charge but I think it was 5 euros for 15 minutes in the hot tub. I have NEVER stayed in a hotel that charges to use the hot tub. My husband and I were looking forward to the hot tub and would have even paid the fee but we went to check it out and it was not hot, luke warm at best...so glad we didn't pay first. And then there was the room. It was stuffy, hot and humid for 2 days. I thought the AC wasn't working so I called the front desk and they informed me that the AC wouldn't run because it was still considered the "winter season" so only the heater would work. I was confused. If it was still the winter season, why wasn't the hot tub hot? The next day we left early to explore the city and when we came back the AC was woking and our room was cool! Maybe we weren't the only ones calling the front desk. Decent breakfast included too!

LONG STORY SHORT: Great location, you cannot beat it. It's close (within walking distance) to Metro station, Acropolis and the Plaka. Good breakfast. Just know that you might have to pay for some ameneties which are usually included.

Thank you for the communication. We wish we could have met or exceeded your expectations yet it seems that it has not been the case; we are sorry that you feel this way about your stay.
Regarding the issues addressed, the jacuzzi temperature is at 37 celcius which is the standard required and it satisfies all our clientelle, we have hardly had any complaint. Based on our guests' feedback we believe that in order to safeguard the enjoyment and tranquility of the jacuzzi as well as the hygiene, it is important to control its use.

About the ac issue, during the mid season we follow the requests of the majority of our guests who were asking for heating at night, nonetheless the windows can be opened so one can enjoy the fresh breeze of the 15 degrees of the Athenian April in the early evening.

The free wifi is being offered through our direct reservation attractive package please take advantage at your next booking (nevertheless we hardly ever charge per device). We wish to remind our Tripadvisor readers that wifi is free in public areas.

We stayed in the hotel for 3 nights. The hotel is beautiful and has excellent location. The maintenance is ib the highest standard. The service was exceptional and professional. The Acropolis view from upper floor is wonderful.

Not much to say, almost everything went great in Herodion: room, breakfast, service, staff, location... the only "major" flaw was that wi-fi was to be paid extra.

It is absolute must to pinpoint the hotel's roof terrace with magnificent view of Acropoli!

This hotel is located at the foot of the Acropolis in a great location. It is on a quiet street, though there is bus traffic going up to the Acropolis during the day and rooms facing the street might hear this. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. They readily offered us advice on restaurants, tours, sites, places for Greek music. They offer a very full buffet breakfast (included in our price) with lots of choices. Their patio restaurant serves delicious local Greek dishes as well as other fare and the prices are quite reasonable. The young waiter who worked in this restaurant spoiled us with typical Greek dishes when he saw that we were interested in trying out local food. The hotel has a wonderful roof garden which faces the Parthenon and provides gorgeous views both day and night. A wonderful place to sit with a glass of wine or read a book. The rooms are a little small, but still enough room to get around.

Room Tip: There seem to be rooms with a view of the Acropolis, but these are obviously more expensive.

I think this hotel don't reach the level of 4-stars if i compare other hotels where I had been before, for instance breakfast and space of room. Connection to internet there are for free, but password to use internet is 5 EUR per day. Free internet access is available near lobby. Nevertheless in general I was satisfied with service of hotel including breakfast with local cuisines. I had a great view of the Acropolis over school. There also is nice terrace with jacuzzi (5EUR 15min), Staff is helpful and helps with information about city. Localization of hotel also is excellent - close to Acropolis museum, metro, city center etc.

Room Tip: I recommended to choose room with Acropolis view otherwise is possible to take room on the lowest f...

The location is great, just at the Acropolis, a few minutes walk from Plaka and it's shops and old town-charm. A few more minutes and you're in Monastiraki or the central Syntagma sq.
The rooms are small, but clean. The immediate neighbourhood is quiet.
I have one major complaint though. Wifi in the room was not included in the bill. I refused to pay the extra charge and spent some time in the lounge every day, checking my mail. Quite outrageous I think...if something, this would make me choose another hotel if/when I return to Athens...

The hotel is 5 mins walk away from Acropolis and that was the key deciding factor we booked the hotel. The room is clean and comes with huge bathroom. Wifi is only available in the lobby area. The use of jacuzzi comes with additional charges as well.
