“Wonderful hotel!”
Reviewed 31 August 2014 via mobile

My wife and I spent three nights at the Herodion Hotel in late August 2014. Our room was on the 4th floor in the back and had an amazing view of the Acropolis. The rooftop restaurant and bar was a great place for a night cap with the Parthenon all lit up. We also had a very tasty dinner there. The staff were incredible - very helpful and patient. We highly recommend Herodion!

My husband and I stayed at Herodion Hotel for two nights during our honeymoon. We're so glad we picked the Herodion; the hotel and its staff made our stay in Athens a delight.

From the moment we arrived, the staff was very professional, helping us with our bags and explaining how to get to the Acropolis and other attractions. Since it was our honeymoon, we had requested a room with a view of the Acropolis, and were delighted that they honored our request.

Breakfast is included in the stay, and the continental style offered a very nice selection of fresh fruits, cereals, and breads as well as hot eggs and bacon. We almost skipped it the first morning but were glad we decided to check it out.

The downstairs lobby and bar area are very nice, as is the rooftop restaurant. The rooftop offers a great view of the Acropolis and the restaurant serves modern and reasonably priced dishes. We had dinner there our first night and liked it so much that we returned the next day. On any other trip we might have been more adventurous in our restaurant choice, but on our honeymoon we were very happy with the consistency and quality of Herodion's rooftop cuisine.

All in all, it was a great stay and very convenient for seeing the Acropolis and museums of ancient Athens. The Acropolis and the New Acropolis Museum are a quick 2-3 block walk. Staff at the hotel spoke English and were very accommodating. I definitely recommend the hotel to others and would pick Herodion again if we had the chance.

We were so warmly welcomed, not just upon arrival, but each time we went through the lobby. The staff was friendly, helpful, and professional. We had dinner the first night up on the rooftop restaurant and the hostess was delightful, taking pictures of everyone with the glowing Parthenon in the background. The hotel is located within walking distance of the Acropolis and museum, the Plaka, and the hop-on hop-off bus stop. We were given lots of helpful tips from the front desk staff about where to go and what to do. There was a problem with the Wi-Fi in the room and the tech people worked diligently to fix it. An outstanding experience all around!

We stayed at the Herodion on July 6 for one night before linking up with an organized tour the next day. We had stayed here for several nights back in 2009 and we were anxious to get back to this very excellent hotel. I can't say it any simpler than this: We love the place and we would go back again if given the opportunity.

Why? Nice layout. Great location near Acropolis and its museum. Metro not far. Easy walking access to most of the nice tourist areas. Clean. Very friendly staff. They will bend over backward to help you. Nice breakfast and breakfast room. Absolutely great bar with really tranquil and natural decor. Bartenders are great. English, of course is no problem here.

What have I left out? No worries, it's all good. Like I said, i'd jump at the chance to stay here again.

John

We cannot thank our loyal guests, becoming reviewers, enough. It gives us such pride to read that you would “... jump at the chance to stay here again...” We certainly hope to see you again walking through our doors as soon as possible, and then we may celebrate with one of Lefteri's great house cocktails!

We stayed here for 2 nights. The location is great - very close to the Acropolis. The staff goes out of the way to make sure guests are satisfied. Rooftop restaurant offers super views of the Acropolis, specially at night! We didn't eat there, but the drinks we tried were awesome!

The only reason I took one star off is for the rooms - they seem old and outdated.

Would I recommend this hotel? Definitely! :)

Just stayed at this hotel for 3 days. Great small hotel. Perfect location. Walking distance to Acropolis and museum. 1/2 block to Hop on hop off bus tour, nice restautants/Platka area. Beautiful view from rooftop restaurant/bar. Nice room with balcony. Staff was wonderful and very helpful. Breakfast was very good with a little bit of everything. Downside, comfortable bed, but pillows were too hard and hardly any sound on TV. We would definitely pick this hotel again. Highly recommend it!

Dear glgblues

Having earned your recommendation and in addition to that a promise of return makes us all very proud.
Thank you for the heart full description of our hotel and for appreciating the efforts of all the staff. It is unfortunate, though, that you mentioned nothing about your pillow while with us; in the rooms, there are pillows of three different densities and softness' and if that does not suffice Ms Katerina, the head chamber maid, may turn up with a fourth solution.
We certainly hope to welcome you back in the not so distant future.

Dear Jennifer H

Thank you for reviewing us on TripAdvisor. I am very happy that you enjoyed your stay and appreciated the quality of our services . Given your good understanding of HERODION I feel it is necessary to address each one of your 'cons' (1) we do have adjoining rooms yet as they are not innumerable please ask for them upon booking, (2) both our outdoor jacuzzi with view to the Acropolis are hot (±37° C), (3) it is true that our two elevators are not very big, but this is something one does comes across when in family owned hotels located in historical city centres in Europe.
Once again let me thank you for your feedback which gave me the opportunity to clarify some aspects of our hotel.
