“Good restaurant with fabulous view”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

Had dinner at this restaurant. The view of the Acropolis is amazing. Just lean back, breathe and enjoy. Food was very good. Salads were great as was fish. Service was prompt not intrusive. Lobby was smart looking

Great location next to Acropolis museum and to pedestrian area linking key sites of interest.
Paid a very reasonable 35 euros taxi fare from airport after 9pm. Hotel room comfortable and clean. Hotel lounges and breafast dining area very nice. Roof top terrace with restaurant and bar are a must experience: exceptional service, great food and anazing view of the Parthenon and Athens ! Choose to eat at the restaurant having just checked in : whole experience was exceptional.
A great hotel with helpful staff. Great advert for how hotels in Greece can compete on the global stage. We hope to visit again.

Everyone knows that the days of cheap hostelries in Athens is long over. And while expensive luxury hotels are never hard to find, what about something in-between? There is also a dearth of clean, comfortable, cozy, safe, centrally-located, handsome and affordable mid-class lodgings in central Athens--especially a single place fulfilling all these criteria at once. But look no further--just go to www.herodion.gr/‎ and book a room at the Hotel Herodion and you can cross 'hotel search' off of your to-do list.

The Herodion is right next door to the New Acropolis Museum; the pedestrian Dionysus Areopagitou walkway circling the Acropolis is just around the corner, and the picturesque streets entering Plaka are a seven minute stroll away. The hotel has four floors, a cool-spacious-leafy-shady lobby with bar, lounge and breakfast room, and a top-story deck that serves meals and drinks and basks magnificently in the lights illuminating the towering Parthenon until well past midnight. The staff are courteous, helpful and know everything about Athens, and can book anything you need for your travels. On-call taxis arrive within one minute. There is luggage storage (apothiki) for your eventual return stay, clean and comfortable rooms (including junior suites with a welcome additional lounge space), wifi, sauna and sun decks, and a substantial first-class breakfast buffet including fruits, breads, eggs, bacon and sausages, juices, marmelades, yoghurt and honey and special orders on request. The hotel is far enough away from large streets to remain quiet and tranquil at all hours.

In recent years this hotel has become increasingly popular, and its sister hotel, the Philippos, just one block away, is often commandeered to handle guest overflow. For price, comfort, location and all-around pleasantness right at the gateway to Plaka, the Herodion is unsurpassed.

Room Tip: courtyard rooms facing north (rear) have a view to the Acropolis, but you can get this from the top...

This hotel could not have been in a better location for people touring Athens and environs. You can walk to the Acropolis, Metro Station, new museum and many restaurants. The air conditioner is a little noisy, but at least it works. Room was pretty nice, and the rate was good, including breakfast.
Desk staff very nice and helpful.

Room Tip: Face the Acropolis for quiet room.

This hotel is near acropolis metro and museum and short walk to the acropolis. Bar and restaurant on the rooftop is fantastic with a great view of the acropolis, amazing at night. Rooms clean, staff friendly and knowledgeable. Buffet breakfast is also good. We were really happy overall with the position, staff, food and accommodation.

Room Tip: Floor above 1st would be good

I reserved this 4 star hotel mostly for its location and beautiful terrace facing the Acropolis.
I also picked the most expensive room from the several offerings for this hotel on Expedia, to try to get a really nice room (over 140 Euros by the way).

Unfortunately, when we got there, we were first given a room on the first floor facing the street, and thus very noisy.
After complaining we were switched to another 1st floor room facing a back wall, no view but less noisy. Apparently all the rooms on the top floor were taken.

Worse, when we tried to go to the terrace, we found out it was closed due to a private event. Nice, real nice: the hotel makes extra money from the event, but we don't get what we paid for.

After we came back from the Cyclades for one final night in Athens, needless to say we did not pick this hotel. In fact we chose another four star hotel which cost exactly half, where the rooms were as nice and where we did enjoy the terrace.
So not worth the money

Dear Clarencephil



Thank you for taking time to write a review about your stay. I was disappointed to learn of the issues you experienced, concerning your room. Your reservation was for a superior double room, which is explicitly described in our website in order for our guests to be absolutely informed. Also, through our website one may find offers when booking a room.

I apologize for the inconvenience regarding the access to our roof top terrace this one specific night; private events are an absolute exception, occuring very rarely if not at all, exactly because we value our guests and wish to offer them the best of our hotel.

Yet, that same evening, our guests could still enjoy the same Acropolis view at the outdoor jacuzzi lounge [4th floor] and, strech out on the chaises-longues and order drinks from the cocktail bar. The olive garden deck area also provides the same services and view. As always, dinner reservations could be made at the ATRIUM Restaurant of our hotel. It is unfortunate that you did not enjoy one or all of these options

Nonetheless, as we are very proud of our extraordinary terrace, let me invite you to join us for a drink next time you are in Athens.

We have staid in a number of different hotels in Athens over the years, but somehow always missed the Herodion. Well, no more, this will be our hotel of choice going forward. The views from the roof terrace are spectacular, the breakfast is very nice, and the rooms are clean and functional.
The service is just a nice and efficient as you would expect from a 4 or 5 star class hotel, but the pricing is more in line with a 3 star in Athens.
Our room (319) had a balcony with a beautiful view of the Acropolis, beds where comfy and the hotel was pleasantly quiet. If you can, go for the Acropolis view rooms, as the street in front (Rovertou Galli) is fairly busy (gets used by a lot of the buses to get to the Acropolis entrance, since they turned Dionysiou Areopagitou into a pedestrian only street)
Trip to the airport on Monday morning at 7:30 AM took only about 40 minutes and cost €35 (flat rate)

Room Tip: Pay extra for the Acropolis view, you will end up with a very quiet room Try for a room on the 3rd...
