Hotel location was spectacular, the proximity to the parthenon and the museum was unmatched. The hot tub with a view of the parthenon was amazing. surrounding neighborhood was safe and quiet. Metro station twoo blocks away. Will stay here againGenuine Hotels.com guest review

great location, pretty good view of acropolis from the terraceGenuine Expedia guest review

"Good experience for Athens"
The location is EXCELLENT! One block from the new museum! One block to the Acropolis! The roof top bar was very pleasant where we managed to see the Acropolis at night. A very romantic setting. If you are looking for something close to most of the main attractions this is the place to stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good location - comfortable beds"
My husband and I spent 10 days in Greece for a vacation. By day 8 we were ready for a comfortable, king size bed, so we decided to spend the last two nights of our trip at the Hotel Herodion. As we had hoped, the beds were nice and comfortable, a "real" king size with nice linens. The room and bathroom were a nice size as well, clean with strong air […] conditioning and working mini-fridge. We got the "Acropolis View" room with a balcony. The service was good, but we got MUCH better service at the less expensive hotels we stayed at earlier in the trip. The two lead desk clerks we dealt with were quite snobby, which took an effort for me to shrug off. However, we did order a drink at the bar while waiting to meet a friend, and the bartender was friendly and the drinks were nice and fresh. (Fresh squeezed orange juice for the cocktails). The breakfast attendant was super friendly as well. He even taught us a couple of words in Greek, which we thought was fun and charming. The location is good, but there are MANY hotels that have as good or better location than this one. Note: There are two Jacuzzi tubs on the roof. You need to make a reservation and get a special key and towel to use them, and you get 15 minutes at a time. All in all, I'm happy we spent the last couple nights of our trip at this hotel, just for the bed and A.C., but I'm glad we didn't spend our whole trip at this hotel. I think that we would have missed out on a lot if we had. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The price for this hotel was great for its location and service. The rooms are normal/solid for a downtown hotel in Europe. While not big or stylish, they are clean and comfortable. The staff was always there when needed and the location was close to, while not in the middle of, the tourist area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Stylish hotel in a quiet place close to acropolis"
nice location close to the acropolis, but not that close to the restaurant scene, anyway, you dont want to stay there as its too crowded and noisy, so the Herodion is a good option. The hotel is located in a very quiet area, yet a 15min walk you will be in the retaurants street and 20min to the plaka. It is close to the metro, just 5 min walk. The hotel […] is recently refurbished, and in very good condition, it overviews the acropolis, just male sure your room is facing it. They have 2 nice padeo on the floors, where you can enjoy a nice drink and see the acropolis. One of the padeo has a small jacuzzi. They have a cute bar in the lobby where you can have some drink while waiting for your partner. Breakfast was ok, not very generous but you will find a basic selection of croissants, some cheeses and eggs. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Not upscale but a clean, well located, friendly staffed hotel. The new museum is right next door and to the pedestrian street with great cafes, restaurants, gelato, shopping, etc. Metro stops right there also. Great view of the Acropolis & Parthenon. Only point of immense frustration...WiFi service. On this trip we had traveled through France and Turkey […] and every hotel was free with great connection through the entire hotel. The Herodian charges a modest fee daily. No problem paying but they have a different network on each floor. When you moved around, it causesd you to disconnect. Then you have to call the reception to reset your account each time. We paid for 3 device fees and had to do this numerous times a day---Totally Crazy! Other than this frustration that really needs to be addressed by the hotel...I would recommend the Herodian. Very Friendy staff. Great Location. Horrible WiFi setup.

"Great Location to the Acropolis!"
Decent hotel. Great location, minutes from the Acropolis and Plaka. Excellent view of the Acropolis from the rooftop garden. Very nice breakfast buffet. The room was smaller than expected but somewhat typical for Europe. The shower was a strange sit-down tub with a shower head on a flex hose, which made it difficult to take a comfortable shower with […] the small lower area and the raise seat area. Plus the overspray from the shower isn't contained very well by the shower curatin, so expect puddles after each shower. Minor annoyance. One major annoyance for me since I am a light sleeper was the constant slamming of the doors by other guests all through the night. The room doors are hard to open and close, thus all the slamming. Hotel staff was friendly and quickly responded to any issues. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We stayed for one night this August. The room was disapointing and nothing like the pictures, not even a picture on the wall. The only plus's were the rooftop view and the location. The front desk has a deal with the cab companies for a 5 Euro kickback if they call a cab for you.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Better on their website"
A la carte pricing for amenities reduces quality of value compared to neighboring hotels. Website also doesn't make it clear that you will have to pay extra for wifi, jacuzzi, etc. so it extra disappointing when you arrive. Also, the rooms look much better on their website than what I actually got. When I compared notes with friends at other hotels, […] I found better value at other hotels (location, room, amenities, price). Overall not bad, just not great.

"Great views from the terrace"
Excellent location for those who want to visit the Acropolis area. Staff was very helpful in all cases. The rooftop terrace is a true highlight after dark.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel next to main sites, dining and shops"
Hotel is located in an excellent area, only a 5-10 minute walk to the Acropolis. A 5 minute walk from a metro stop and also many dining and shopping areas. Hotel room is small and the bed is hard but really only in the hotel to sleep so all that is needed.

Our room had a great view of the acropolis. The bathroom, lacked counter space, and the shower was narrow. But overall the room was great. Breakfast was buffet style and it was delicious.

"2 nights at HErodion , Athens"
This hotel was everything we needed for a 2 night pre-cruise stay.

We had a great time in Athens and this hotel and staff were a large part of it!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Location of the hotel is excellent. Very close to the Metro, Acropolis, and Acropolis museum. Walking distance to Plaka and Monastiraki. Also close to less touristy, neighborhood shops, cafes, and a supermarket. Great bakeries and pastry shops in the area (around Veikou Street) where you can buy bread, sandwiches, and spinach/cheese/ mushroom pies, […] etc. -great for a quick lunch or snack. There is a kiosk directly across the street from the hotel where one can buy bottled water, snacks, and various essentials. There is also a pay phone (buy a phone card at the kiosk). Hotel staff were helpful and friendly. The included breakfast was o.k. - a variety of choices and a little above average for what is typically offered by hotels in the area. The day I checked out, hotel staff asked if I needed any help with a taxi, etc. When I informed them I was taking the Metro to the airport, they were concerned and told me they were going to make a call for me as there had been a problem on the line to the airport that morning. I had already checked it out, but it was reasssuring to know they were on top of things like that. Hotel staff carried my suitcase down the front steps to the sidewalk for me.

"Fantastic Hotel in a Great Location"
The Herodion is a great hotel to stay at in Athens. I choose this soley based on reviews and location and I am glad I did. It is very close to everything you want to see in Athens. Acropolis 5 min walk, museum is next door, plaka, syntagma both a 10 min stroll. When I read the rooms were small, I was prepared, but was pleasantly surprised that it wasnt […] that small, size wise I would compare it to a standard motel in the states, comfort-wise it would be a standard 4 star in the states. I am very pleased with the service I received from Herodion. My flight got in early in the morning, and I was able to check-in well before the check-in time. my room was clean and efficient and the staff was very friendly. Close to many restaurants and cafes. Do be warned that there is a school right behind the hotel and that can get very noisey as it seems they have recess all day, but if you are like me and not in the room very much during the day it shouldnt be a problem. The internet is not free, but it didnt cost me very much 6 Euros for 24 hours. The rooftop and 4th floor gardens are very nice and give you an excellent view of the Acropolis. My room on the 2nd floor gave me a minimal view of Acropolis and was level with the school, but it sufficed. I highly recommend to anyone traveling to Athens! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location. Rooms pretty good. We had a king size bed which you don't find very often, so we were happy. Breakfast was a typically European breakfast, which was fine for us. Hotel staff were professional, but not really friendly. Very business like and were not able to help with recommendations for dinners or directions. More than once they sent […] us in a completely wrong direction. Overall though it was a great hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would definitely recommend the hotel"
The location of the hotel is excellent, and I think that is basic. About the staff everybody was very helpful and attentive, except for one older man in the front desk in the night shift, who appeared to be in a bad mood all the time (but they probably shift them). Breakfast was really good as well. The hotel decoration is clean and modern, I liked […] it, and do think that the pictures they have (or their webpage) do not make justice., the hotel is very cute. I didn´t like the fact that you had to pay for wifi, I think this is a service that should come included. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We stayed for 7 days in Greece and 5 days in Athens - all days at Herodion. The hotel's location is very good and close to Plaka.

This hotel is in a perfect location for visiting the Acropolis, Plaka, New Acropolis Museum, and other sites in central Athens. It's on the southern side of the Acropolis, a much quieter neighborhood than the other sides.

"A Good Athens Hotel near the Acropolis"
The hotel is 2 blocks away from the ticket entrance to the Acropolis (Parthenon). It is located one block from the newly opened Acropolis Museum. There is a Hop On, Hop Off -- Citi Tours bus stop one block away. You cant ask for a better hotel location. The hotel has 4 floors with about 12 rooms per floor. The rooms are quite clean and typical European. […] You wont be disappointed. There is guest internet service avail in the lobby for 3 Euro per hr. The internet is SLOW. The staff is friendly and helpful. Most everyone speaks some form of English. A cab ride to the airport is 40 Euro. There is an excellent breakfast buffet that is included with the price of the room. Nobody ever eats lunch or dinner at the hotel. The prices are high and the ambiance is low. You can find numerous good, small restaurants within a 2 block radius. Dont be afraid to patronize any of them. There is a good restaurant next door, but it is a bit pricey and wont take credit cards. Not all restaurants take credit cards. Ask before you commit yourself to one. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Staying in Athens"
We stayed at the Herodion for only one night, and we found that If we needed to stay longer it would have been the hotel to be at. It was 150 yards from the the acropolis. And yes on the roof of the hotel you can view the acropolis. It is located on a somewhat busy street and at night it can be a little noisey, but we fell asleep quickly. The staff […] was very helpful and could speak english. We didn't eat at the restaurant, because we wanted to eat at a restaurant that the locals eat at. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Central location is perfect. Staff is frendly and informative. Glad we choose this hotel in Athens.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel sits at the foot of the Acropolis and next to the Acropolis Museum. You just could not have a better location. The service is great, the lobby and roof top deck are spectacular but that is where it stops. Our room was very small and being on our honeymoon, the two single beds did not sit well with us but that is typical Europe. The food in […] the restaurant was reasonable compared to some of the places in the Plaka. Tumbs up but the rooms need a little updating. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"I love the Jacuzzi!"
Everything was so good except the Wireless Internet. They give you a login ID and password for 24 hours for $7. But each time I restart my computer there was a problem with the account. The jaccuzi with the view of Acropolis was perfect. I recommend using it at night!Genuine Expedia guest review

"Easy Thumbs Up"
We picked this hotel sight unseen and we were so impressed. Right next door to the new Acropolis museum. The roof top deck gives you an amazing view of the Acropolis. The room was really clean, well appointed and quiet. Breakfast was terrific. Staff were patient and very helpful. They sent us to Strofi restaurant just up the street for dinner where […] we ate in the rooftop garden admiring the Acropolis at night. We had friends staying on the other side of the Acropolis in a dump in a really bad neighborhood. This hotel was not much more expensive and was an absolutely wonderful spot to stay in. Their internet connection could stand improvement, but it was nice to have access to a printer. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Worth it for the location"
The room we were given was very noisy from outside traffic, and it smelled of cleaning products. We asked to be moved to a quieter room and we had a much better space, quiet and a small terrace. Our air conditioning did not work, only blew in warm outside air, but it was repaired the following morning. The breakfast was excellent. We had to pay 6 euros […] a day for very weak, unreliable internet service. The desk staff were cold and aloof, but professional. They charge 5 Euros per towel for use at the hot tub! Don't bother with the hot tub. Go relax on the roof at night in comfie chairs with an unbeatable view of the Acropolis and the Acropolis museum. The location is amazing. Despite a couple inconveniences, I would definitely return to this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Can't beat the location, but staff could be better."
This hotel has a great location, right near the Acropolis Museum. The room rate was high and everything cost extra, which I did not know up front ( such as internet access and use of the jacuzzi.) My room was small and rather dark, and smelled of smoke even though it said no smoking. The breakfast included was good, but not great. The staff were somewhat […] helpful, but not friendly. Using the internet was a real pain. You needed to enter the internet address every time you wanted to get on and a password. If you went in the lobby or on the rooftop there was a different network than your room, but they did not tell you that upfront so it was hard to access it. There is a rooftop garden with an amazing view of the Acropolis lit at night. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Herodion Hotel, Athens"
At the foot of the Acropolis this hotel is welcoming, comfortable and tastefully appointed. It's a calming oasis in a busy, heavily trafficked tourist area. A few blocks uphill is a magnificent Athens restaurant, Sofri.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location, Decent everything else"
The Herodion charges so much because of its location. It is perfectly situated next to the Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum and a block away from the metro station. The neighborhood around the hotel doesn't have a lot going on - there aren't many restaurants and it is mostly residential with small antique shops. The hotel itself is comfortable, but […] they do charge extras where they can. The internet was an extra 6 Euro a night and the restaurant was expensive. The room was also relatively small. The breakfasts were free and great, though. Overall I think that I would stay somewhere else next time because I didn't feel like I got outstanding value for the money, and one could get a hotel in a better neighborhood, like Monastraki or Syntagma for the same price.

"Lovely View Rooms Available"
*Genuine Expedia guest review
If you want to be near the acropiolis it's a great place, specilly if you can afford a room with a view on the hill. The service is correct and efficient, but i'm sure there are better options for more, or even less, in athens.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful view of the Parthenon and a great staff"
The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. At the unrelated restaurant next door though, watch out when your plate takes the 2nd bounce after hitting the table; it is by contrast to the Herodion hostile, but the food wasn't bad. It is sad that most of Athens is covered with artless grafitti, but thankfully not this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
