Stayed here for 5 nights kicking off a European holiday and we were very happy with the stay. Place was clean and tidy a little on the small side but it's only a home base. Perfectly located close to everything you want to see in Athens city. View from the peacock bar of the acropolis at night is awesome. Breakfast...

We rarely review hotels, but feel we owe it to Hera Hotel to review our stay there. It's a fantastic location, really couldn't be better. The view should be written up by Rick Steves. The service was great and the hotel spotless. The breakfast delicious and served in a beautiful atrium. Feel fortunate if you can book a room here!

I'd stay here several more times. Friendly staff and such an amazing location, just two blocks from restaurants and shops and the Parthenon. Rooftop restaurant and bar with a great view and super cute rooms. I really enjoyed my stay here and for the price, you just can't do any better.

On the negative side, Bed Bugs was problem. Changed rooms and floors night 2 of...

Location and staffs are great! But got over 80 bedbugs bites all over both of my arms the first night staying on the second floor and spent the rest of my European trip suffering from extremely itchy bites and trauma! DO NOT RECOMMEND!

The hotel is in a great location, close to a major metro and within two minutes of the Acropolis museum and the Acropolis itself. Rooms are European small but well appointed. Very helpful staff and a very good breakfasts. This is a great hotel for getting around central Athens.

Service friendly. Check in easy. Off noisy streets so pleasantly quiet. Decor pleasant , what we have come to understand as greek idea of "chic" ?! Buffet a bit nicer then usual. Room amenities ok. Nothing to rave about but ok.

The Hera Hotel is a short walk from the Acropolis Museum, The Acropolis and very close to Plaka - it really is the ideal location to stay in Athens. The Hotel is a family run concern and everyone is so kind and friendly, especially to me, a single woman traveling alone. I look forward to ruturning there again, and thank...

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighbourhood Profile
Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely pedestrianised Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centrepiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
