the view from the roof garden-bar is awesome! small room
They were very nice and gave us a free upgrade. The room was beautiful- much larger than typical
Location and staff Very old room, very bad veiw from my room,room can be seen in 2 stars hoteks
Hotel is well-located to Acropolis and its surrounding. Hotel itself is "old-fashioned" in its best meaning. Staff is very friendly and room was a very cozy. We would like to come back.
It was a great hotel for a one night stay in Athens. The staff was very helpful. The location of the hotel was perfect very close to Acropolis and main city area. I would stay here again & recommend to friends as well. The bathroom could be updated it's very basic, decor updates are needed. Room service is too overpriced, luckily there's a lot of places to eat close by.
Front desk and restaurants were accommodating. Only Internet issues in room; yet connection was fine on main floor.
Excellent location...beautiful views from rooftop restaurant..friendly and helpful staff..quiet nights~ Expensive parking
Loved the view of the Temple of Zeus and the Acropolis. The morning breakfast was terrific and good value. The walk was very convenient, but the few shops next door made it look seedy to presence of the hotel. I thought 25.00 for a Margarita and 16 for a beer was a bit over the top. The prices for bar drinks make a traveler like me go elsewhere for a drinks, when I would really rather stay and drink in the relaxing atmosphere of the pool and hotel.
Well maintained, very helpful and friendly staff. Location -- it's directly facing a major 4-lane road. Major traffic noise. The immediately surrounding neighborhood is dominated by auto repair shops. It's a three block walk to the Plaka district, and then you arrive in the most touristy part.
the staff's demeanor was excellent and personable. The Panoramic suite had an incredible view and the rooftop bar had a staggering view of the Temple of Olympian Zeus. If you can afford a night or two of luxury and five minute walk from the Acropolis...stay here. Dannis K. - Toronto
Great location near acropolis and the shopping areas. We were able to walk to monstroaki and the parliment square as well. Temple of zeus is just across the street. Breakfast buffet is great with an amazing view. We came w our 17mo old and they provided a pack n play. Easy stroller access to front entrance an elevator. Easy stroller side walk access to near by sites. Pretty good sized room considering. Overall a good place to stay w kids Rooms could use a little updating
good location,very nice staff furniter in room can be re new
Location is good. Very close to the Acropolis and near Plaka. Could use some updating and room could have been cleaner.
The breakfast served by the hotel was excellent. No.
Giota was exremely helpful and nice as were all of your staff. Giota went out of her way to see that we were well informed and helped.
In the end, good service We had assumed, based on photos and text, that the Parthenon hotel had views of the Parthenon. When we arrived, it had views of a blank wall a few feet away. After some argument with the reception they admited to having one room with a partial view, which we took.
Amazing location near the Parthenon, the Acropolis museum, the metro, and the Plaka tourist shopping area. Plenty of tavernas, gyros, and gelato nearby. Our room on the 3rd floor was nice and quiet. The bed was comfortable so I got a very good sleep. The full breakfast had many choices - breads, cereals, eggs, meat, cheese, yogurt+honey, feta+cucumber+tomato, fruit, etc. I wish I could stay longer!
The location was great and the staff were great too
Excellent location. Steps away from the New Acropolis Museum. Steps away from a pedestrian only street with lots of restaurants, coffee shops, and street performances. Very close to the Acropolis and the Metro station. The pedestrian only street allows you to go all the way around the Acropolis and see other antiquities such as the Agora and the Thiseum. Excellent free breakfast with 50 different dishes. It is a full breakfast, not a continental breakfast as is it appears in the description of the hotel. Nothing. It was better than I expected.
Nice clean room, near to the places we wanted to visit
clena and great location with a good buffet breakfast the price is a little hig and bathrooms are a little old (but clean)
The prompt help of the staff in order to solve the variuous problems The fact that it was very cold in the room during the night and we were told that if outside is warm the hotel doesn't turn on the heating! Very original, but quite cold to have a nice sleep!IT'S Not at all a real 4 stars hotel, but only a 3 (greek way)! Poor choice of breakfast, no fresh fruits, only frozen ones!
The food and the view from the roof top restaurant were fabulous. The elevator was unusually small and handling luggage was very difficult.
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.
Fabulous views Breakfast was okay, but could be better (would be nice to have fresh juice, more selection)
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.
the sights from the room and the restaurant are great
Everything was outstanding
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.
Helpful staff. especially John the Concierge, who had good tips on where to eat.
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.
Fabulous views, good location, small but stylishly modern room with all amenities. Lots of traffic noise.
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 hotel, great location, very clean and friendly
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.
Comfortable room with an excellant view to the acropolis. Quite and nice surrounding with a short walking to the centre of the city.
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.
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.
The roof top terrace and the lobby area with the reading materials. No.
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)
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.
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.
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 central position the noise in the room
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.
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.
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
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.
Thursday morning desk clerk tried to confirm my airline flight. I would have liked help dragging my heavy bag up the front stairs.
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.
Clean, neat , very close to Plaka Small rooms, receptionists should greet their costumers, be more friendly, there is a feeling that you bother them.
position is good my room is the first room next to reception, too annoying and too loud outside
Located walking distance to sites, transport, and the older part of the city.
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.
the location; the room; the staff shuttle (does not exists)
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.
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
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
excellent location staff was forgetful
roof top restaurant overlooking akropolis
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'
adequate city hotel rtaher lifeless
Beautifully decorated and clean room and helpfull staff Breakfast was too expensive
Close to Acropolis & main sights Clean & comfortable Courteous staff Breakfasts, although varied in selection, were poorly prepared.
very friendly staff and nice location! The single room was a bit too small and there was luck of cleanliness in the bathroom. I have explain it to the reception staff and I hope they will improve the check of the rooms before guests check in.
the helpfulness of the staff, the interest they showed to all their customers to make them feel welcome and comfortable
It is a new (beautiful) hotel but still in progress. The wireless internet and Tv were not available. There was not the box of the shower.
The room design, quality of mattress, very friendly service.
The proximity to everything in Athens
Beautifully appointed facility, friendly, helpful, and sophisticated staff. Well located...within walking distance to Acropolis, tourist areas, Platka. Good buffet breakfast, tho coffee weak. Lovely facility made up for opening quirks and flaws, (see below) Elevator did not work, (have bad ankle) trouble with power going out (circuit breakers), shower did not have door, Acropolis Museum is closed due to new construction, did not note in email when I inquired about the hotel's distance to the Acropolis.
The staff was very helpful and efficient. The location, although on a busy street, is close to major sites as long as walking 3-4 blocks is no problem. The room was spacious. The breakfast was good, but too often cold when it needed to be warm.
The staff was fantastic and helpful. The room was good, new, clean and of decent size. The location was good. The hotel faces the busy main road.
The hotel personel and the location was great. We share a family room, I do think is ideal for a family with small kids only since it has only one bathroom.
Excellent hotel. Located right in the middle of Athens, within ten minutes walking distance of anything you may want to see (Acropolis, Acropolis Museum, Plaka). The rooms are comfortable and clean. Breakfast has a wide array of options. Excellent customer service, far superior to any I have received in northern Europe and the states. Overall, it was an excellent stay in Greece that was complimented by staying at this hotel.
The friendly staff, clean room, and great BF. By the way, Donna in reception is fabulous with knowledge and information and the rest of reception staff are very helpful and friendly as well. And, the young lady in the BF room is superb. We have already recommended your hotel to several other travellers!!!!
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.
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.
Close to acropolis and have a rooftop view to acropolis . Far from metro. No hot coffee percolator in the room.
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!!!
Location was excellent. Manager & staff were extremely helpful & knowledgeable. All was good!
Location is excellent, metro ariund the corner, hotel itself not spectacular, just what we wanted. no complaints
The hotel was in a splendid location with a excellent view of the acropolis.
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).
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.
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.
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.
