This hotel is located right next to the acropolis museum. It's a smaller boutique hotel. Doorman took our bags and they checked us into our room even though to was morning and well before check-in. Our room was small but typical for Europe. The room was nice and the beds were comfortable. The hallways were a bit worn and very dark which made me a little worried about the room but once in the room it was nice. The roof deck bar and restaurant has an amazing view of the acropolis. The lobby is very nice with a cool restaurant that has a tree growing inside and up through the roof. They do have 2 jacuzzi's which are also nice. Would stay here again.

Stayed: July 2014

Dear Bouty42

We are very proud to have earned a promise of return! Our views are really exceptional, and being a hotel in the centre of a big city, and particularly in its core area, the architect decided to create rooms with ample sun-light, thus having the corridors acting as backbone to the building. Hence the somewhat dark impression! But apart form that practicality, yes, we even have trees growing in side the ATRIUM restaurant with its glass roof top!

We only stayed 1 night here on our return trip to Athens before we left greece... and I wish we had stayed here as well for the first part of our trip. The hotel was very nice, beautifully decorated, decent size room, comfortable bed (although we had just come from Santorini, and our hotel there had very firm beds, so i might be a little biased on how soft the bed was, lol!) The shower was nice size comparatively also. The view from the hot tub was amazing! And breakfast was a nice assortment, hot and cold. I was especially happy that they served loukamades (sp?) the little greek donuts! And the location was awesome. Just around the corner from the acropolis museum and Plaka, the main shopping square. We'd definitely stay again!

We were thrilled with our stay at the Herodian. As other reviewers have stated, the location is perfect, but beyond that the staff is very friendly and helpful, rooms clean, and the rooftop restaurant is excellent with stunning views of the Parthenon. A great mix of luxury and economy in an urban hotel. Loved the lobby and displays of local art. We would definitely return.

Room Tip: We booked two rooms for our family of four (two adults two teenagers).

Dear Serpentina


We, on our part, are thrilled that we added in such flying colours, to your travel. Thank you for appreciating the extent of our efforts to offer top quality accommodation. As for the display of paintings, sculpture and crafts created by Greek artists it is because we try to offer our guests an entire experience of what contemporary Greece has to show, eg culinary delight at the roof top restaurant and visual enjoyment in the public areas of the hotel!

We loved the front lobby area. It was spacious and comfortable. The atrium cafe inside is just a great place to sit, read, relax with a snack. The rooftop view of the Acropolis is exceptional, not to mention its view of the Acropolis Museum. Relax in the rooftop hot tub, get some sun, have a drink and a meal. I liked the rooms; they're larger than I'd expect in Greece hotels. I only wis the hallways were painted such a dark color. Staff was very helpful (getting our room ready ASAP and also help with getting a car rental.) Its location is perfect for tourists: a couple blocks to the Acropolis, the Museum, wonderful local restaurants. We stayed at several Athens hotels during our trip to Greece, and we liked this the best.

Room Tip: Higher floor rooms definitely give you a better view of the Acropolis. Lower floors have views of th...

Dear Antony V


Having earned your “best” vote among many other prestigious hotels of our city is a true honour. We thank you for reviewing the impressions of your trip on TripAdvisor, As for the colour of the corridor, yes racing green is a rather dark colour but it was selected by the architect in order to counter balance the brightness of the summer sun!

We stayed in the Herodion hotel on the way to our daughters wedding. First impressions were lovely the staff were welcoming and helpful after our long journey from the UK. Our luggage was taken off us to take to take to our rooms and the staff explained how to get to our rooms. We had three rooms altogether, my other daughter had a lovely family room with a baby cot, very spacious and clean, lovely decorated. Our room was spacious clean and welcoming as was my parents room. The air conditioning was easy to use, the on suite bathroom was well equipped and very clean. The beds were very comfortable and all rooms had a balcony with views of a leafy street and the far off mountains. The choice at the breakfast bar was plentiful and freshly cooked, again the staff were friendly and helpful. We loved our three night stay and visited many of the many attractions Athens has to offer which are easily accessible from the hotel. If we come to Athens again we would not hesitate to stay here again. Thank you very much all involved with the hotel, you were all great :)

A belated review for our stay in January 2014. The Herodion has an excellent location within walking distance of all of the key places of interest in the city (reception were happy to provide us with maps & tips for the best routes). For those wanting alternative transport it is situated on the tourist bus route or about 3 mins walk to the metro. A selection of bars / restaurants are also close by.

I contacted the hotel in advance to seek prices to upgrade to a Parthenon view room as it was my husbands birthday. The hotel immediatley offered an upgrade to a superior room free of charge, along with providing the costings for the room with this view, which we took. I can only reccomend the upgrade to a Parthenon view, fabulous! So too are the views from the roof terrace.

The hotel room was a very good size for a city hotel & was kept immaculately clean. Buffet breakfast offered something for every taste, always plentiful & fresh.

This was our first trip to Athens, having travelled throughout other areas of Greece over many years. Both the city & the hotel exceeded our expectations & we very much look forward to returning.

It's hard to reserve a room at a hotel sigh unseen, but you should feel at ease in booking with the Herodion. It was not only close to EVERYTHING, the service was wonderful, the staff knowledgable, and rooms clean, big enough (for Europe), and the hotel itself - a welcome respite from the Athenian heat. We also stayed at the King George (one of the best luxury hotels in Athens) and while I loved the luxe, admittedly if you are their to tour Athens, the Herodion might be a better bet as it is closer to everything (literally it's a short walk to all the major sights). Also, the roof top bar and jacuzzi were perfect after a long day of walking. I would recommend this hotel over and over!

Dear aveintransit


We are sooooo proud to have earned your recommendation. The fact that our HERODION stands up to the comparison with King George, a 5* luxury hotel, and even wins at the points on certain aspects is very important to us. We thank you for doing us justice and hope to see you again when traveling to Greece.
