Herodion Hotel
Ranked #10 of 282 Hotels in Athens
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 August 2014

Pros:
• Couldn’t be closer to Acropolis and all the top sights in your guidebook
• Nice view of the Parthenon from the rooftop bar/restaurant
• Very helpful front desk staff
• Affordable laundry service

Cons:
• Unreliable Wi-Fi
• A/C is loud and weak
• Shower/tub is very narrow, even for European standard (and I’m a small guy)

Stayed: August 2014, travelled solo

We stayed here for three nights before a cruise to Istanbul.
The rooms are small, especially if you ask for a triple... they are the size of a small double with the third bed placed where your suitcases should go.

But the lobby and downstairs bar are beautiful. The breakfast was excellent, with enough fruit for this fruitarian!
Also, great location, right next to the Acropolis.

Thank you for taking the valuable time to post your review on Tripadvisor writing impressions from the lounges, breakfast and location. It is true that our family run hotel by nature differs in some ways from many of the larger 4 star typical hotels in the greater Athens area; the Herodion Hotel is only 285 meters from the Acropolis Parthenon and only 85 meters from the door of the Acropolis Museum. We do have a variety of rooms in different shapes and sizes, and I am sorry that you were dissatisfied with the size of the room your were allocated. We would be more than happy to show alternative rooms and find the perfect room to suit your needs. Plese let me know on your next stay if this is possible.

The Herodion is well placed for all the sightseeing of Athens. We had a triple room with a guaranteed view of the Acropolis which was lovely. The roof terrace is very nice and the hotel amenities are great - the breakfasts are plentiful and the restaurant has a great selection of beverages and meals available. The Acropolis museum is next door and the Acropolis is a ten minute walk from the hotel. Loads of local restaurants as well. A very enjoyable stay all in all!

Room Tip: Spend that little bit more for the guaranteed Acropolis view

This hotel was recommended by a travel agency. Having no familiarity with Athens or the hotels, we were not sure where to stay. This hotel is literally one block from the fabulous Acropolis Museum, a short walk to Plaka, the Acropolis itself, and many other sites. We were greeted warmly by staff, our rooms were clean, cool and comfortable, and the breakfast was by far the best we had over our two weeks in Greece. I highly recommend trying the 5th floor restaurant as well - not only is the view amazing, the food and service were also great.

Room Tip: Our room faced the street, but it was not noisy in the least.

Stayed here for work in January 2014. The hotel reception was great and very helpful (they usefully advised me on the fixed price of a taxi to the airport), the room clean and fine - it even had a small but cute little balcony. The view, tables and spa on the rooftop is the best thing about the place: the acropolis looks amazing from there day or night. The breakfast was great too.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the acropolis.

A speedy check in after a tiring journey was very welcome . We were on a short trip with our Grandaughter so we were allocated a triple room which was spacious enough Room 222. To get to the Acropolis you only need to turn right as you leave the hotel and walk for 5mins to get to the lower section. We took a cab ride to the Olympic Panthenaic Stadium for a lap of the track great photo opportunities there . Rooftop bar is a must with great views of the Acropolis day and night. Pop down to reception to get a card for the Jacuzzi and a towel ( 5 euros) and make your way to the 4th floor for amazing views!! Breakfast buffet is mostly continental choice although there were bacon and eggs and mini frankfurters and toast as well. A visit to the Acropolis museum is a must even with a small child as they are well catered for. All in all we would definitely visit again but for a longer trip.

Room Tip: Rooms with even numbers are facing onto an indoor courtyard garden and residential but are quiet
