Close to Acropolis & main sights Clean & comfortable Courteous staff Breakfasts, although varied in selection, were poorly prepared.
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.
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
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.
roof top restaurant overlooking akropolis
Location and professional staff Very bad beds, sheets and blankets. Almost 'YMCA level'
adequate city hotel rtaher lifeless
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
the location; the room; the staff shuttle (does not exists)
Beautifully decorated and clean room and helpfull staff Breakfast was too expensive
excellent location staff was forgetful
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.
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.
Comfortable room with an excellant view to the acropolis. Quite and nice surrounding with a short walking to the centre of the city.
The roof top terrace and the lobby area with the reading materials. No.
the central position the noise in the room
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)
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
3 minute walk to the metro station and a 5 minute walk to the center
Roof top patio/bar with excellant view of Acropolis makes staying here a must. This was our 5th visit. Helpful staff, free internet, and convenient location are also major pluses.
We stayed only for one night to discover Athens. The hotel's location is great. Nice restaurants are around, city center and metro is very close and easy to reach when you walk. The rooftop bar has a amaizing view to the achropolis!
Leaving The location. We did not like Athens City at all.
The area was very near the city center with a great view of the Acropolis. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Room was on the small side and the breakfast was mediocre at best. Avoid the charge and eat out. Plenty of good places nearby.
Staff was very helpfull and location was great. It needs to be renovated. Room was too small and all furnitures were very old. I had a view of the wall of the next building.
friendliness of front of house staff. cleaners and breakfast room girl Lack of window screens - thus mosquitos! Shower curtains sticks to us when showering Fridge not cold enough for the contents would be lovely to have medzes offered - even a dip/biscuits on roof - better to eat a little when consuming alcohol!
It was central and enabled us to access historic sights, shopping and delightfule eating. all good
only a 2min walk from the metro. Fabulous view from the rooftop garden/bar of the acropolis. basic but clean and convenient
Close to airport metro link. Rooftop Bar
location, clean, balcony with view over the Acropolis, roof terrace, discount for parking
The staff is excellent, and the location is very good. The bathroom is to small.
Close to trains and Plaka Staff were not kind nor attentive
Proximity to museum and plaka Internet didn't work TV cable news etc a joke.... The bed a single hard uncomfortable plank Everything for 120$??
Rooms were comfortable. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent with lots of selections. The rooftop bar had stunning views of the acropolis. The location was PERFECT! Walking distance to everything you need to see! A little mold in the shower.
Great view of the Acropolis from the rooftop bar! Only bummer was that the hot tub is not open during the winter.
Very friendly and helpful staff. We stayed in one of the suites on the 8th floor - it had a great bathroom and lovely balcony, which we could watch the nightlife from. There is a great rooftop with an amazing 270 degree view of the city including the acropolis. Fantastic for watching the sunset. Breakfast was really nice. It is a about a 5 min walk to the nice, touristy part of town. It is just on the outskirts of the nice part of Athens, but still very safe. The price and location are fantastic. The elevator seem to take a long time.
The view from roof terrace is fantastic. The Acropolis view rooms also extremely good. Hotel is clean and well equipped, with pleasant staff. Breakfast is very good. We booked a twin room, specifically asked for two beds on booking form, but were given a double for the first night and had to change next day.
Price / Benefit balance was so well. This hotel has a so good location at the centre of Athens and you could walk to everywhere that is touristical. I and my friend travelled with metro only one station every tour. It has a good panoromic view with Parthenon on the roof. Internet connection is available, rapid and free of problems. Bath and room are narrow for 2 person but there was advantage related with this that you could find everything your nearest :) Unfortunately, there isn't parking.
As usual, staff was very friendly and responsive to requests. Excellent breakfast, comfy and very clean rooms.
Great staff & facilities. Good location This hotel was a great price with all the facilities you need for a great stay in central Athens.
I liked most the perfect location within the city center - not far away from Metro station and from ancient places. And - the hotel is very nice and clean. On the first impression the area does not look very attractive or even "dangerous" but even during night there is no harm => just go for it.
The hotel was new, and extreemly clean. Rooms are small, but its all you need! The staff were friendly and helpful. Location was great, just enough out of town to be quiet, but we could walk everywhere we wanted to go. Highly recommended! being new not many taxi drivers new the hotel, if you ask to be dropped at the food market they usually know where you are talking about
The staff are extremely helpful and accommodating to ensure you are safe, find your way around and connect to the right resources. The location is a little noisy with market shouters and men milling about but luckily no traffic noise. Feel the threat of pickpockets in the area, but I didn't have a bad experience.
Very nice and comfortable room + bathroom. Very clean. Very good breakfast. Excellent wi-fi internet connection. Very convenient location. Everything was perfect.
The hotel provided excellent service at a great price. Located in Monastiraki with the Plaka nearby it was an easy stroll to the Acropolis. Beds were excellent as was the breakfast. The hotel provided coffee & tea facilities in the lounge area but would have loved a kettle & mugs in the room. This is really not a complaint just a desire.
The hotel staff were very helpful and friendly, warm and welcoming. The rooms were stylish and comfortable. Beautiful view from rooftop.
It was a boutique hotel which is very smart and lives up to the photos. The immediate location is not so good though. The immediate vicinity of the hotel is not great (ie next to the food market square) however it is only a 10 minute walk to the tourist centre
The location was excellent. Walking distance to everything. Cleaning staff excellent. The traffic noise, even when the window was closed, was very, very noisy. We paid for a 5 hour WiFi card but their WiFi hardly worked so I couldn't use all my hours and staff would not refund me. A.C. didn't work first few days.
Rooftop terrace view and Elsa our bartender. Efharisto!!!
The roof top area is brilliant and the views over the Acropolis stunning. Easy to get to agora, shops and eating places. Bathroom/shower room was a bit small. The lift doors were too quick.
The friendliness of the staff and how helpful they were all the time; they gave us tips to move around and help us to keep our luggage even when we've already checked out. The hotel is well located with many important places (most-visited historic attractions) at walking distance; also great was having a convenient small market next door where we could get fruits, beverages, baked goods, etc. The breakfast were very good, as well as the views from the roof lounge. The maze of streets – if you're driving a car there, it is hard to park and easy to get lost in the many one-direction streets.
The location is phantastic: right in the heart of the old town. The outdoor bar on the roof has a breath taking view on the Acropolis - day and night! There is no other building in the way! The room was clean and fulfilled our expectations. Our room was a bit noisy due to the fact that the windows could not be closed properly. For an international hotel there where very view TV channels not in Greek.
Location was excellent - near Acropolis with a great view of the Parthenon from the roof bar, staff were friendly, the room was basic but big enough for 3, the breakfast was good and the hotel manager personally canvassed the breakfast room. Traffic noise on the lower floors was noticeble starting early
The location was excellent. The roof garden was nice for relaxing and the breakfast was great although the staff would walk right by you and never speak, The check in staff were welcoming and very helpful with directions. It was all good. It is now on my list of reccomended places
Location, roof garden views, breakfast. Very soft beds, could not control room temperature,
Location was excellent for visiting all major sights on foot. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice.
The terrace has a beautiful view of the Acropolis and the location is very close to restaurants, bars, and other places you would like to see and visit.
clean, quiet, good beds, staff were sooooooooo friendly, soooooo helpful, roof top bar/lounging area was so quiet and romantic, looking right at the acropolis. hotel right in the old town of Athens, the ancient agora. been to Athens many times, 2nd time at Plaka Hotel, will only stay there from now on. nothing
Location, location, location. Plaka is located close to many main Athens attractions and transportation options.
The hotel is absolutely beautiful, from the stylish modern lobby to the sleek, well-appointed rooms. We were on our honeymoon and the staff went out of their way to make it special. They upgraded us to a suite with a view of the Acropolis and sent us welcome drinks and snacks. They also recommended a fabulous restaurant (Dionysus) and made us a reservation for a beautiful table. There was a lovely breakfast buffet included in the price of the room and we enjoyed eating at the hotel restaurant and having drinks at the intimate on-site bar. Overall, this was an excellent experience and we would absolutely stay there again. We didn't want to leave!
The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, esp when I was extremely jet lagged. The room was clean and comfortable. Location was excellent. Wish we could have stayed longer than 24 hours! Typical European room, Spartan and simple. Wifi in Greece weak almost everywhere, so lower your expectations regarding device connectivity, not hotel's fault. Everything was terrific
Hotel receptionists speak perfect English. The guest services specialist, Eva, was extremely helpful each morning. Breakfast was fantastic. Rooms were very clean, and were updated. Shower was reasonably sized, compared to the majority of Greek hotels. Superior location in north Plaka. Wireless internet is not very good.
centrally located,helpful friendly staff,nice room
Location extremely convenient. Staff friendly, polite and helpful. Room adequate size and well designed, clean, very clean!. Excellent breakfast, good value for money, we have booked to stay there again. Nothing
Clean room and very close to the heart of the city. great place to stay for a quick vacation trip
Quiet room, close to the center of Athens Missing stair rail between ground and next floor
The fact that its located in the heart of Athens The room for 3 people to stay in was a bit too small. They need to make more big rooms to accomodate 3 and 4 people
Good place overall. Central location. Breakfast is fantastic and gets your day started right! Room is a typical small European room, but I found the space adequate. Staff is friendly and helpful, and they gave me some useful tips for things to do. One thing I noticed was a small play area for children, but the hotel seemed to be adults only during my stay. Hotel is tastefully decorated. I was happy with my stay. Bathroom is a typical small European style, and like most Americans, I got water all over when I showered. Also don't open the windows at night or you'll get bit up by mosquitos.
Location, breakfast, nice balcony Internet was not working for most of the time. Room needs an update.
This hotel exceeded my expectations. The rooms were modern, clean, and quiet. The bathroom was updated and beautiful. Even the toiletries that were provided were quality. There is a rooftop terrace with a great view of the Acropolis and their sister hotel which is a few blocks away also has a rooftop terrace with a bar with the best view of the Acropolis. The breakfast was included in the price and was by far the best part. There was food to please every nationality of traveler. There was even a gluten free section. I would definitely stay here again if I ever return to Athens. There was some confusion when checking in regarding how many people were staying in the room so make sure you make this information very clear when making the initial reservation.
The Complimentary wine was excellent as we enjoyed our balcony. The rooms were clean and the lady at the desk was friendly. The grumpy man at the front desk.
de tudo = of everything ( but one or 2 blocks on the streets are full of men at night but it was ok)
I really enjoyed my stay there. The staff was so helpful, they gave me a map along with indications when I asked them what to visit. All sites very close, within walking distance. The rooms are very clean + free wi-fi!
The position is ideal for bus and metro, being walking distance from Monasteraki and Omonia. The rooms are clean. The price for a single room is very reasonable, and the staff are helpful. I stay here whenever I need to spend a night in Athens. I'm not too happy about the pigeons walking around the breakfast tables!
Very near to the center of Athens
great hotel but district scruffy. Lovely manager
clean, looked fresh painted, good value for money. central position in the city it s not the hotel s fault, but of the region. lots of immigrants there from middle east, pakistan etc. better go to hotel from right side as u look at the front door of the hotel from outside, than from the left side.
Convenient location to Omnia Metro, Central Market, shops, cafes. Pleasant hotel interior, facilities, breakfast. Helpful reception staff. Colourful district both day and night. Good cafe on corner used by locals, no choice of menu just barbecued meats, greek salad and bread. View of derelict building opposite.
Très bien placé : à 5 minutes de la station de métro Monastiraki donc à proximité des grands coins touristiques (Acropole, Place Syntagma, à 15min du Pirée,...). Petit déjeuners très agréables et copieux de plus avec produits frais (yaourt grec, fruits, fromages et charcuteries) seul bémol : pas de jus de fruits frais ! Roof top et terrasse du restaurant donnant sur l'Acropole : excellent !!! Confort des chambres mais salle de bain exiguë ! Personnel à l'écoute et très serviable, communication facile en anglais !!! Très bon hôtel !!! Nous y sommes restés 7 jours ! Pas de jus de fruits frais, salle de bain exiguë
neighborhood, breakfast, bathroom+ price Security questionable.
Price, Food too noisy
Helpful staff. Convenient location for walking to Omnia Metro, Central Market, Shops, Cafes. Colourful atmosphere surrounding the hotel including lots of shops for clothes, shoes etc run by Chinese, open late. Night time the street was lively with comings and goings of colourful characters. Cafe on the corner was excellent value (no menu) one barbecue meat dish only, locals ate there. View of the derelict building opposite.
