Fabulous views Breakfast was okay, but could be better (would be nice to have fresh juice, more selection)
Staff very friendly and accommodating. Room was lovely. Bathroom was very nice, shower was excellent, shampoo/conditioners etc were very good quality as i didn't want to unpack, so just used them. Location is excellent, just around the corner from the Plaka area and very safe. Near the metro also. The Roof Garden bar was lovely although, closes at 11pm. View of Acropolis was lovely from there. Can't find any faults. Probably wouldn't pay the extra againf or a room with a view of Parthegon or Acropolis, as the roof garden made for a nice view anyway. In all, a very nice hotel with lovely staff who come across as genuinely friendly people.
Excellent location. Cleanliness of room - & everything worked! Staff were knowledgeable & friendly. Very good food, including breakfast. The rooms are on the small side, & also quite noisy at night.
the sights from the room and the restaurant are great
Excellent hotel, great location, very clean and friendly
The hotel is in an ideal position to visit the major sites of interest in the city.We were always made most welcome by the staff and the breakfast buffet was very good.
Staff was very friendly. For example, when the manager at the reception learned that it was my wife's birthday, he sent a bottle of red wine and fruits to our room.
Helpful staff. especially John the Concierge, who had good tips on where to eat.
The food and the view from the roof top restaurant were fabulous. The elevator was unusually small and handling luggage was very difficult.
Everything was outstanding
The location was terrific and we enjoyed our room. The beds were very comfortable and the bathroom was sleek, clean and modern. We especially enjoyed breakfast in the Roof Garden with the wonderful view. The staff was friendly and courteous, and the service was very good. Our room was a little small, but this was not a big problem. The marble stairs felt a little dangerous - it might be good to install hand rails on the upper floors.
Fabulous views, good location, small but stylishly modern room with all amenities. Lots of traffic noise.
Good situated within Athens, but noisy traffic for the front rooms on first floor. Asked for an upgrade to a bigger room and got the answer that all rooms have the same size which wasn't true as we could see by passing some rooms where the door was open. Well, we arranged with it.
The roof top terrace and the lobby area with the reading materials. No.
The location of the hotel is great, with easy access to the Acropolis, Acropolis Museum and the Acropolis Metro. Make sure to ask for an outside facing room as some rooms can be small and cramped. The downstairs lobby area is very nice with a good atmosphere to sit and talk or to read/write. Sometimes the rooms can be cramped and dark. Sometimes cab drivers can't locate it, but just tell them to drop you off by the Acropolis Museum and you can navigate it easily.
Very comfortable beds,a great view of the Acropolis,clean rooms.good breakfast buffet no complaints,but rquest a room on the Acropolis side,not the street side.
Firstly location: very close to Acropolis and Plaka district. Almost in front of touristic bus (nbr 400) stop. Then we liked because we asked through the website a room for 1 couple and 1 adult with view and they arranged exactly that. And finally good service and a beautiful terrace facing Acropole, with also 2 jacuzzis. Not really.
Comfortable room with an excellant view to the acropolis. Quite and nice surrounding with a short walking to the centre of the city.
The hotel was ideally located, in a quiet area with lots of restaurants nearby and the Acropolis museum metro stop. It also had a rooftop garden and jacuzzi with a stunning view over to the Acropolis,which was ideal for relaxing away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Athens. Clean, comfortable and good choice of food at breakfast time. As other customers have already commented, It would have been nicer if the Jacuzzi was free to use (at the moment its costs EUR5 for each 15minutes)
I have stayed in many hotels around the world and I must say the Herodion was easily one of the best. All the staff were extremely helpful and very professional. The presentation of the hotel felt like 5 stars and the food was amazing. My wife and I have every intention of staying there again should we go back to Athens on holiday. The only minor points that stopped the Herodion getting full marks in every aspect was that the bed in the double room was actually two single beds pushed side by side and the pillows/matress was a little hard.
the central position the noise in the room
This is the perfect location for exploring Athens. Safe Street, restaurants and shopping nearby, immediately adjacent to the modern and magnificent Acropolis museum. Staff were friendly and accommodating. The rooms were very quiet and the rooftop view of the Acropolis is spectacular.
Great value for money, well located close to the Acropolis, nice common areas and pleasant breakfast room. Rooms are well equipped and very clean. Bathroom a bit dated, but very clean. No issues. Room had no view, but for the money, more than acceptable.
Thursday morning desk clerk tried to confirm my airline flight. I would have liked help dragging my heavy bag up the front stairs.
Clean, neat , very close to Plaka Small rooms, receptionists should greet their costumers, be more friendly, there is a feeling that you bother them.
Personal was very kind and responsive Wi - Fi didn't work in our room
good position, the room was clean and quite comfortable. i couldn't pay with my credit cards, only with cash money
Located walking distance to sites, transport, and the older part of the city.
The staff was sooo nice. We arrived quite late and they did not bat an eye. One morning we slept in and missed breakfast, they served us anyway and did not charge us an additional fee. The bed was a bit hard.
That it was in good location. Hotel Staff not speak good english and very helpfull, breakfast really bad, room extremely small and dirty, too expensive for what you get.
It was at a premium location, we had a view of Acropolis from our balcony. Very clean. It was in a residential area, so nice and quiet at nights. The lady serving in the breakfast room was making too much noise when putting away the crockery.
All our comments relate to the Herodion Hotel, sister of the Philippos Hotel. The hotel management had very kindly upgraded us to the Herodion for the same price as the Philippos because our airline (BA) caused us to arrive 6 hours late, well after midnight. The beds were a little bit harder than we would have wished.
position is good my room is the first room next to reception, too annoying and too loud outside
The roof restaurant where you can have a good view of the Acropolis is perfect!! Everything is perfect, although it is expensive, it worths.
excellent location bathrooms need updating/replacing
Excellent location - proximity to sights and tours. Great roof top breakfast facilities. Unpleasant odour in bathroom, air conditioner didn't work
We stayed for 5 nights as part of a wedding party and found that the hotel was ideally situated for sightseeing, shopping, restaurants,etc., All in all enjoyed our stay and found that it was excellent value for money for city centre hotel. Everything was close by, including metro and restaurants (just outside front door) and the breakfast served on the roof terrace was always one of the highlights of the day made better by the company we were in. Thoroughly enjoyed it!!!
Breakfast at the terrace and the location are fantastic. The staff is super kind and helpful. Shower too small, but I knew before I got there so it was not a surprise.
Excellent stay. A room with superb view.
Lovely view of Acropolis from my window/balcony.
location. lovely rooftop terrace for breakfast not really ,although bath/shower was very small
Definitely the location, cleanliness, and breakfast buffet.
adequate city hotel rtaher lifeless
Excellent location very close to the Acropolis in a nice little residential neighborhood. There is a Spar supermarket down the street and a small convenience store on the same block. We found our room to be very comfortable. We had a balcony with a nice view over Athens. I would definitely stay here again. The bathroom was a bit impractical: when you shower, the water goes all over the floor. Also, the sink is very shallow.
excellent location staff was forgetful
roof top restaurant overlooking akropolis
Our second stay at Divani, and it was lovely. The staff offers excellent service and is very attentive. The location is the best as all major sights can be easily reached by walking or the metro. the room was fabulous. I would highly, highly recommend it to all. on the night of the August full moon, we had dinner on the patio. we overlooked the acropolis and it was very memorable
Location was great, the room was very nice, with a balcony. The roof deck was closed, one of the biggest selling points on the hotel. Also, no transportation service available to/from airport.
the location; the room; the staff shuttle (does not exists)
Beautifully decorated and clean room and helpfull staff Breakfast was too expensive
it was not realy what i ecpected from i 5 star hotel when they mention that its possible to add a bed in a room then they should be ready for it and could organise
As our room was in the building that was recently renovated, the facilities were brand-new. The location is convenient to visit Acropolis. We were annoyed by their house-keeping services. Everytime they cleaned the room, they forgot to supply glasses and cups. And the most disappointing thing was that they didn't clean the room one day even though I put on the 'make up room' light and even asked them to clean the room over the phone. When I returned to the room in the evening to find the room had not got cleaned and complained, the lady didn't apologize. She dared to say it was because I had put on the 'do not disturb' light, which was not true.
Location and professional staff Very bad beds, sheets and blankets. Almost 'YMCA level'
Close to Acropolis & main sights Clean & comfortable Courteous staff Breakfasts, although varied in selection, were poorly prepared.
Location was excellent. Manager & staff were extremely helpful & knowledgeable. All was good!
The location is excellent with a view of the Acropolis. The breakfast was great to start our day, especially fresh fruit. The staff was outstanding in the assistance with any restaurant recommendations and transportation needs. Nothing!!!
Great location and the staff were extremely helpful in providing prompt info. on how to get to the hotel via e-mail. The roof top terrace was lovely. The room / bathroom was somewhat dated and worn.
Clean, comfortable and not expensive. Rooms small and dated. Parking difcicult.
Close to acropolis and have a rooftop view to acropolis . Far from metro. No hot coffee percolator in the room.
Yes, it has an excellent location. But I think it is resting on its laurels with that quite lazily. It did have a nice clean bathroom with good lighting and no poor smell. The room had a disgustingly stained carpet and the patio door did not lock. With the very outdated light fixtures (switches near the ground!), beds on wheels and a wall radio, it looked like a 1979 mental institution.
Close to the Acropolis, staff were very helpful and friendly, great view of the Acropolis from the room top deck. No safe in the room to store valuables. Breakfast could have had a little more variety.
The location, at the foot of the Acropolis in a beautiful historical touristy area, was perfect. I had a great view of the Acropolis from my particular balcony (try to request such a room). Also, it was really hot in Athens but the A/C worked brilliantly. The bed was pretty stiff and there wasn't much room in the room, BUT I knew that going in. It's a great-value 2-star hotel in an awesome area. I got what I paid for and it was great. Oh, the TV didn't work...but I wasn't there to watch TV.
Very clean, very quiet room. Easy walking distance to Acropolis.
The hotel was wonderfully located at the base of Acropolis. Easy to walk to the entrance and surrounding attractions. The bathroom wasn't in the room, it was across the hall. If I had to use the restroom at night I had to worry about running into someone in my pajamas in the hall.
It's in the Plaka district, close to all the special sites on and near the acropolis, and fairly easy to reach by the metro. Do not bring your car, however. Parking is almost non-existent.
The location was amazing, the staff were so friendly and helpful and the terrace on the roof was amazing over looking the acropolis!
Great location, very convenient, amazing views. Awesome roof patio. The room was clean and so were the bathrooms, but we had selected a private bathroom, and there were only public bathrooms (2 toilet/shower units for the whole floor).
