“Very Nice Place to Stay in Athens near the Acropolis”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

This is a very nice hotel. The staff was helpful and able. The locaion is great. The rooms are good, and the breakfasts are also good. The rooftop bar has a fantastic view.

The staff recommended a restaurant to me, and made reservations for me--that worked out very well.

We stayed here for 2 nights recently and the hotel was everything advertised. The staff were more than helpful and at check in offered maps and directions to show us where everything was in relation to the hotel. We had the acropolis view room but I think it is not necessary as you can view the acropolis from the roof terrace anytime as it is literally behind the hotel. The rooms were large and had a balcony which was really nice. The bathroom and shower were good size and water pressure excellent.
The hotel is close to everything including the acropolis museum which is next door and you can walk up hill to the end of the street and be at the acropolis. Also the plaka is just around the corner.
The restaurant and bar are on the rooftop and offer excellent views of the Parthenon. Food was good and service was good.
The breakfast buffet was good offering Greek foods together with traditional items.
We would definitely return to this hotel

Room Tip: The acropolis view room was nice

I will NEVER use this Hotel Again, also i will Blog negative review to all sites i know. The Front Staff Member Maria is very nice, Friendly and VERY accommodating. Breakfast was REALLY GOOD, perfect for your daily energy. but on the other hand night Staff is very Rude and Arrogant. If you ask for anything ex. ice, extra pillow etc. they WILL give you an attitude like it's a hassle or you are bothering them come-on we're on vacation right??. When we checked out early morning May 9th 2014 Front staff named Giorgios, accused us of ordering something from the bar he showed us receipt after receipt and its does not make sense the signature does not match but he insisted that the signature is the same as my wife. He raised his voice on us and very rude.. after number of argument and yelling by Giorgios i ask him the room number on the receipt and it was incorrect it was not the right room number registered to us. Ok! i might made a mistake of telling him the room number, but don't you think as a front staff member you would double check the registered name of the room before accusing them? or maybe yelling at them?. The rooms that they gave me and my wife was outdated and stinky the walls are very thin that i can hear everything from the other room or so. My sister 's family got the Jr. suite this is a totally a different review to tell. The room is up to date, clean and very beautiful it also came with a balcony WOW huh! you get what you payed for. Every hotels has there pluses and minuses, what tops it off for me is the rudeness and the yelling i really don't deserve it. Herodion has a wonderful location, please fix your night staff members.

I don't work for any Hotel(s), im just stating the Facts of my horrible vacation in Horidion.

Thank you.

Room Tip: If you ever would like to stay here try to get the Jr. Suite to be comfortable and make sure you sta...

It is always disappointing to learn of a less than perfect stay, but I would like to thank you for highlighting the parts that you enjoyed as well as describing the unfortunate incident that caused such distress from our part.
Our staff is well trained and always seems to exceed in politeness and service; yet it is possible that our staff member did not handle the issue properly and we assure you that we will take all necessary measures so that such incident will not occur again. We apologize and would like to reassure you that if you ever return to Athens and stay with us again we will make sure that you will be fully satisfied.

Had a great vacation at the Herodion in Athens. The staff was excellent especially the young woman at front desk.(Alicia?). Rooms were small for 3 adults but had 3 beds that were comfortable.near acropolis museum! Walking distance to everything,shops restaurants etc.best view from rooftop of Parthenon. Very good breakfast included to start your day!

Room Tip: Next to a school so there is noise in the am if you are a light sleeper.

Stayed at this hotel in April and its location was perfect for getting to the main attractions in Athens and located in a quiet neighborhood. The room was up to date had a nice balcony and the people at the desk were very helpful and spoke excellant English. Breakfast is decent - except the coffee?

Two minor complaints - the hotel's Wi-Fi was terrrible and seldom worked in the room and had to repeatedly go down to the lobby to get any reception. The odor from the old plumbing in the bathroom as found in many European hotels - ugh - just flush again and leave the bath room door open.

Great value for the money.

Room Tip: Get one of the rooms on the upper floors with a balcony and check out the Wi-Fi service if that'...

I am sorry that you had to go down to the lobby more often than necessary in order to get good WiFi reception; we are doing our best to address the difficulty yet it is not always easy.
We look forward to welcoming you again to HERODION

The best of this hotel are many of the people working there.
At the restaurant, Litsa, Antonio and Tomas were incredibly gentle and tried to satisfy
the smallest of my wishes. At reception Kostas, Lucas, Giorgios and Christos were all
very helpful and friendly. We stayed several days in four different periods of time during
our Christmas holidays. We took two rooms and since at the end we became like family they
kept upgrading our rooms. The rooms with a view to the Acropolis are incredible,
but even if you get the cheaper room without the view, you will hace access to the terrace
where you can spend hours reading with that astonishing view. Everything else was correct: Clean, comfortable, reasonable wifi.

We chose Herodion for this trip since our first choice hotel was fully booked (trip was a bit of a last minute decision..). We weren't definitely disappointed: great view from the terrace, nicely sized room, very good breakfast, nice and attentive staff. The area where it's located is our favourite one in Athens, so we've definitely wrote down this hotel in our "to return to" list...

We are proud to have earned your preference and are happy to hear that we made it in your “to return to” list; this is the best compliment for us. If it were possible to schedule your next visit during the summer months, then you would also have the opportunity of enjoying the majestic view over cocktails and dinner!
