Reviewed 1 May 2010

I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in April 2008 before flying on to Corfu for Greek Easter and I could not fault it - I had a super room with a view of the Parthenon, the welcome was typically Greek - warm and smiling.
The reception staff fell over themselves to be charming and helpful and they couldn't do enough to help. The let me check in early after 2 long flights via England from Portugal.
The room was cosy and even had a pillow menu for those with a preference for soft and fluffy or hard!!
Breakfasts more than adequate, lunch in the Atrium restaurant was lovely and again bar and waiting staff smiling and helpful offering sightseeing tips etc,
The location has to be one of the best in Athens, close to everything but peacful and calm.

I shall be returning again in May for a short stay before a Greek Oddysey around the Cycladic Islands on a charter boat and this time I shall return with my sister in law and a friend who is travelling from USA.

Despite what some travellers have written I am sure they were not staying in the same hotel... some people are just never happy!
Keep up the good work Herodion and hang on to your staff - it's not only in the archaeological museum you will find Greek treasures - many of them work in the Herodion! I so look forward to coming back...

We were pleasantly surprised at this hotel as we were not expecting much because of the reasonable price we paid and the fact that it was in central Athens. we were in the The lobby is very modern and inviting and the staff welcoming. It was renovated for the Athens' Olympics in 2004. There was an excellent buffet breakfast included.
We took the Metro from the Airport and had no problem reaching the hotel. There was a train change (but the signage is good) and then a 10 minute walk from the subway so don't take a lot of luggage. Investigate a 3 day pass. There are lots of cabs at the Airport also.
The rooftop patio provides a view of the city and the Parthenon above. The Acropolis is a 20 minute walk uphill from the hotel. The new Acropolis Museum is 3 minutes away,well worth a visit.
It was an easy walk to the Plaka area of Athens with many good restaurants.
The Archaeological Museum is a must especially if you are planning a trip the Peloponnese Peninsula and Santorini.
Try to visit the sites early in the day to avoid some of the tourist bus crowds.
We rented a car to go to the Peloponnese and driving from the hotel was not as bad as we had read about but you still need nerves of steel and lots of change for the toll highway.

The Herodion Hotel is located about two blocks away from the major historical sites. We were able to walk everywhere. The breakfast was great as was the service. Our room was a little small, but was clean and had a pretty good view of the Acropolis. They have two rooftop terraces where you can sit, relax, and enjoy a glass of wine. My only complaint is that they charge 5 Euros to use the jacuzzi, which is located on a roof terrace. Overall, the value was great and we would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Hotel Herodion is a great, no-nonsense hotel near all the action in Athens. Make a left out of the hotel, another left at the corner, proceed about a block up hill and you're right on the pedestrian walkway that wraps around the Acropolis! This hotel is in perfectly located on the fringe of all the action. During our stay here we walked everywhere-Plaka, Acropolis, Syntagma Square, Hadrian's Arch, Lycabbetus Hill (St. George's), Acropolis Museum...etc. Although some attractions were a bit far, it was feasible and a great adventure. I'm sure we could have done it all a lot faster by subway or bus, but we preferred to walk.

Hotel was clean, and location very safe. The roof deck is a great place to relax with views of the city and the Acopolis. We had fun pointing out our hotel from different spots within the city, like from the terrace of the Acropolis Museum.

Check-In/Out was quick and easy. Breakfast was good and service prompt.

I have just returned from a two night stay and I thought the hotel was very nice. Location is just perfect, the roof terrace a wonderful place to relax after a days sight seeing and the room clean and comfortable. Breakfast was ok, as was the lunch we ordered on the terrace.

Only one complaint - the exteme heat of the rooms! I had a room on the outside so although it was very warm if I kept the window open at night it was ok but a little noisy. My friend had one overlooking the inner court yard and they were uncomfortably hot even though the outside temperatire at night was only about 10c. The air con hadn't been switched on for summer yet.

After a week stay in Herodion Hotel, I must say that it was a disaster and I can not believe people who wrote all these.

Actually, most of the reviews saying GREAT LOCATION which is true but I wouldnt pay that much money only for its location. Its definetely not a 4* hotel or tourist class. I would never say its more than 2* hotel.

They have inner and otside rooms. Outside rooms have balcony but inner rooms are facing to a hall which is dark and you can not refresh the air in your room.

All furniture, towels etc are old and smells very bad. A long hair came on my face when I used the towel and that was the last time which I have used it. I used the towels on the floor as the carpets in the room was really dirty. It was even hard to walk in the room because it was quite small. I had chance to see all other rooms. Briefly dark and dirty rooms.

The breakfast was fair but the tables were again dirty. Because its popular, there were
many people who use the breakfast hall at the same time.

They charge 3 EURO per an hour and 6 EURO per 24 hour internet, all extras are quite expensive.

On the other hand, the roof terrace was nice and you can see the Acropolis , New museum in the night but I wouldnt stay in this hotel because its only walking distance to these places.

Once again, you can say the location perfect but hotel is not so I would rather pay less to stay in better hotel and walk a bit more.

We stayed here for four nights and loved it, a very comfortable and calm haven to retreat to after a day sightseeing. Fantastic location right next door to the New Acropolis Museum, just down the road from the entrance to the Parthenon ,easy walking distance to the Plaka area where there are numerous very good eating places and in a very safe location. It is also worth noting that it is within walking distance of the Acropolis metro station which makes it very easy to get to from the airport. Other plus points are that the restaurant and bar prices are very reasonable for a hotel of this standard and location. Great rooftop gardens with fab views of the Parthenon.
