With an unbeatable location and superb Acropolis views, the understated but stylish Herodion Hotel is a good choice for both leisure and business travel. It’s set in an upscale residential area right next to most of the city’s best-known sights, including the Acropolis, Agora and Parthenon (which is 15 minutes’ walk uphill).
It is 20 minutes on foot from Monastiraki flea market for bargain hunting and from the Psiri and Plaka neighbourhoods in the Old City -- both good areas for restaurants and traditional taverns. There’s a metro station (Acropoli) five minutes’ walk away for journeys further afield.
This chic boutique hotel’s main draw is its roof terrace and outstanding vistas of the Acropolis (illuminated at night). In the summer you can enjoy dinner here at Point α, which offers a select menu of finger food, salads and traditional Greek dishes, such as souvlakia and kebabs (open 7pm-12am, May-October).
The terrace itself is open until midnight for hotel guests all year round. Beyond the views, there are two hot tubs (available to hire for 15-minute slots), and you can order food or drinks to be delivered.
Down on the ground floor, you’ll find the hotel’s main restaurant and bar, where the dishes and dining room are distinctly Mediterranean -- there’s even an olive tree growing through the conservatory ceiling. Dine by the fire in the winter, or relax in the garden beneath the pistachio trees in warmer months. There’s also a small business centre in the lobby (charges apply).
Rooms are petite but contemporary in style, with floor-to-ceiling windows. Many have balconies, the best facing the Acropolis, and Junior Suites have separate sitting rooms and comfy sofas. Wi-Fi is available, though it costs extra.
