Bottom Line

In a convenient location for sightseeing, the upscale Herodion Hotel is located within a 10-minute walk of the Acropolis and Parthenon. The hotel has a free breakfast buffet, a pretty atrium bar, a restaurant that specializes in Greek and Mediterranean cuisine, and rooftop terraces with amazing views of the Acropolis. There are also two terrace hot tubs and a rooftop restaurant/bar that's open in the summer. The 90 rooms are on the small side, and bathrooms have shower/tub combinations with hand showers. Guests looking for a hotel with a pool should check out Divani Acropolis Palace Hotel, a luxury hotel in a similar price range with a pretty outdoor pool area.

Herodion Hotel

Scene

Pretty indoor spaces and beautiful views from the roof garden

A cozy area in the lobby of the Herodion Hotel features white cushiony couches, a fireplace, and shelves lined with books for guests to read. Drinks, coffee, and desserts, such as homemade apple pie and brownies, are served at a wooden bar next to a glass atrium. Inside the charming space, natural lighting shines through glass, and trees grow straight through the rooftop. Board games such as chess and backgammon are set up for guests to play on long wooden tables. In the summer, guests can drink and eat on the roof garden, with wooden decks and a water fountain. The views from this deck are stunning. A hot tub and a small olive garden are also on the roof.

The views and balcony situation vary depending on the room -- some rooms have spacious balconies with uninspiring views of nearby buildings, while others have no balconies but good views of the Acropolis.
