Historical Traveller Reviews of Herodion Hotel
My favorite hotel of the trip. Fantastic Food.from A TripAdvisor Member
Good location, reasonable hotelfrom dugongs2
The downside of the location is it is touristy so expect to pay far more for restaurants and service is not always friendly.
The hotel was being refurbished when we arrived and a Friday afternoon nap was constantly interrupted by banging and drilling however this stopped at 5 and then the hotel was quiet for the rest of the weekend.
We stayed in a second floor room looking over a quiet street however traffic noise was apparent from buses and lorries - not constant but enough to be annoying - although the double glazing cut this out completely. Another issue was no air conditioning only heating in the room. Not sure if this was because of the time of year as the room had a ducted unit on the wall which would appear to cool but we were told by the porter if you want to cool room open window which was amusing but a bit poor in a 4 star hotel particularly given the street noise. The bathroom was very small, shower was an attachment to the tap although worked ok was a little short and bath narrow so felt cramped and the double bed was two singles pushed together not even joined. TV had CNN and BBC World on cable.
Breakfast was a buffet eggs,bacon and continental selection. Only one tiny 2 slice toaster which was impossible. Overall OK not exceptional. We did enjoy a room service afternoon coffee and chocolate brownie which was excellent for a small room service fee.
Overall location location location and good for a weekend sight seeing in Athens. For £60 a night thought it was reasonable value although Greece is not the bargain it once was.
Good for the pricefrom A TripAdvisor Member
Nice Gem of a Hotelfrom bjm26186
It is within wonderful walking distance of the Plaka (shopping restaurant district), the Acropolis, and the Agora.
When making reservations I recommend getting rooms 412, 414 or 415 for great views of the Acropolis. In room 412 I could see the lit acropolis at night while resting in bed. You may also go to the 5th floor roof for wonderful views of the lit Parthenon.
The Hotel Restaurant is good, the breakfast buffet is excellent by European standard, the Ice Cream at the hotel was agroup favorite.
Staff was outstanding.
Terrific location and helpful stafffrom pamandave
Great locationfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed here 3 years ago and the high quality has not changed. On a previous trip to Athens I stayed at a so-called 5 star hotel that was horrendous.
Highly recommend the Herodion and I will stay here again on the next trip.
Pricy but with a great locationfrom OttawaMimi
Everything was a breeze, check in, check out, getting a taxi to the airport. Breakfast is buffet style with lots of variety. Service was friendly and efficient.
Only "negative" comment is the ridiculously small bathroom (even by European standards) with only half of a shower door and no curtain.
Pricy but with a great central location with the Plaka and Acropolis within walking distance.
Superb Breakfast!from samraj

Good hotel, good location, good price.from A TripAdvisor Member
The Akropoli Station is located a short walk away and there are news stands to buy drinks at all over. Just across the street from the Akropoli station was a decent restaurant and about 10 minutes away from the hotel was a stip shopping area where there were other eateries.
Athens is a walking city in our opinion but be prepared for steps. This hotel is located very close to the entrance of the Acropolis Hill. Other sites we found were easy enough to get to using the train or just walking.
Good hotel for the price (which we paid last year about $90 a night).
Top Local Tips for Athens
Eating in the Plaka area. This is the main tourist area of Athens, and has some good places to eat. But some cater solely for tourists and are rather average to say the least. Go up some of the side alleyways that lead up towards the Acropolis rock and you will find some quieter and better tavernas, with good views and lower prices.
After the Acropolis After seeing the Acropolis, return by walking down through the old city through miriads of tiny laneways and dozens of restaurants in the most beautiful settings.
Use the metro! Metro from the airport is efficient, clean and safe and inexpensive! As it is from all points ...
