Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 July 2012

Situated right in the middle of action, this place definitely beats all other when it comes to location. We would rate hotel to be just above average and nothing spectacular.

What we liked:
Walking distance from Acropolis (200 mts)
Very near to shopping street (Ermou) and Plaka (one station away)
Lots of nice restaurants in vicinity
Superb view of Acropolis from roof top and some rooms on top floor
Nice roof top garden and Jacuzzi

What we dint like:
Very repetitive breakfast (nice if you are staying for a day or two)
Limited options for in room dining
Hotel staff refused to switch on Air Con even when it was hot outside (Just because it was April)
No exhaust in bathroom

We stayed at this place for 4 nights

Room Tip: We stayed in room 401, top floor corner room - very nice view of Acropolis

I have stayed at this hotel many times. Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose. It is a very professional hotel with a very wide scope of services. The lobby is very nice and singularly comfortable. The bar is in the best professional hands. Breakfast is good. I have never had lunch or supper at the hotel. On the top terrace the singular view of the Acropolis persists. Recently a terrace with two Jacuzzis has been added. Definitely nice when the temperature is close to 40 degrees as it was during my stay.

The basic layout of the hotel designed the rooms to an average, Greek size. Many rooms have got balconies added, but mine this time (room 305) the balcony was too small to be of any practical use. This must be a headache for the management.

Still I will be coming back to the Herodion because it is such a well-managed place. Now it is also neighbor to the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. This gives the hotel decidedly an extra value. Try it next time!

We had two stays of one night at either end of a tour to the Greek Islands and have nothing but praise for the hotel. Our room had an amazing view of the Acropolis especially spectacular at night. The proximity of the Acropolis is a huge benefit as it only takes a few minutes to walk there. The bed was enormous and very comfortable with lots of pillows. From arrival to departure the staff couldnt have been more helpful and friendly and would quickly appear to help with carrying bags etc. We ate dinner in the hotel during both stays as we had very early starts and the meals were delicious. The hotel is very quiet. We would definitely stay the again!

The Herodion Hotel is superbly situated only a 10-minute walk from the Acropolis (it can be seen from the roof-top bar). It is also very close to shopping areas and eateries, making it an ideal location for tourists such as us. The hotel staff were very helpful and willingly gave advice and information about getting around Athens. The rooms were spacious and modern, and the breakfast buffet was excellent. We would highly recommend staying here.
