Herodion Hotel

The staff are extremely helpful and nice. The food is great, especially for a hotel. The rooftop restaurant is great also! The hotel itself is very cute--just like the photos online. The location is great! It's only a few steps from the Acropolis, metro, and Plaka area.

Fair

For triple room it was rather small. they essentially took a small double and put a bed in the room. They disengaged the heating and AC system so we had no controls what so ever. Not a four star hotel in my opinion

We lost 650 euro in our room in the hotel

We lost a lot of money, which was locked in our bag, in our room in the hotel. First of all, we thought it's the housekeeper that stole our money. But after two days observations, we found other strange things! Our room is on the first floor, and it's easy to someone to walk into our room from the window. We locked our window all the time. But the housekeeper always opened the window and the door of wardrobe just she thought our room was a bit smelly. But after she opened the window and the door, she left our room and only closed the door of our room. She then continued to clean up other rooms and let our window open for a such long time!! During this time, it's possible that someone else may go into our room to steal our money! That's a such terrible arrangement and it should not be continued again! If you have to stay in this hotel, you must be very very very careful about your belongs and only lock them in the safe box but not other locked bags. And it's better to not to stay on the first floor since there is a platform outside there so it's easy for others to go from other rooms to your room from the window.

There are lots of mosquito in the room and the toilet is too small. Should install a shower curtain to block the water from splashing out of the bathtub. Breadfast is good though. Hotel is located near Acropolis which is advantage for those who prefer accessibility to subway and sightseeing.

Acropolis view from Jacuzzi

Can't beat the location. The rooftop garden has a view of the Acropolis and a Jacuzzi. Nice breakfast. Rooms with a double bed are hard to get --- 2 singles seem to be the norm. 5 Euro/day charge for WiFi, which is inexcusable.

Nice hotel close to a lot of the tourist sights!

The Herodion Hotel is a nice hotel that is in a great location. It is only minutes from many of the tourist sights in central Athens! The hotel staff are great, very friendly and helpful. The room (I stayed in room 202) is small and is need of upgrade. They were doing some upgrades to half the rooms on the second floor during my stay. So they are working on that issue. I am sure in a year most of the rooms will have been renovated. There is some noise that you will hear from the street if you stay on the front side of the hotel, as well as there is an elementary school at the rear of the school. So if you like to sleep in on a week days you might get woken up by the kids at recess. They are rather loud but recess only lasted for about 20-30 minutes in the morning. The beds were moderately comfortable, and the flat screen TV was nice, although they only have about 12-15 channels to choose from (Greek, French, German, USA-CNBC, and UK-BBC World News). The breakfast was good and plentiful. One suggestion, make it down for breakfast before 9:00am. There are many tour groups that stay at this hotel and after 9am you will find that some of the food items have run out. The food from the dinning room is also very good. They have a daily Greek special all throughout the week featuring some of the best foods Greece has to offer. The dinning and bar area in the atrium is very nice and relaxing. The lounge is also very well decorated and comfortable for casual drinks, chats or just reading a book...maybe by the fire place during the winter months. Over all this is a very good hotel. If you are looking for a nice place to stay just steps from the Acropolis Museum and minutes to other sights...then this is the place for you!

A perfect base for seeing Athens

Absolutely fabulous. The only thing that could have made it better was to have tea and coffee facilities in the room. But as we were hardly ever there it didn't bother us that much but it would have been nice to have after a long day walking around this beautiful city. We WILL be coming back.

Go the the Parthenon first as your ticket from this site is valid at most other ancient monuments. Also, Sunday is a free day at all monuments but only open 10-3
