Location is excellent within walking distance to the walking distance to the Acropolis and other historic sites. Situated in very safe neighborhood with lots of very good restaurants. The hotel is very up-class with a very good breakfast and very knowledgeable and helpful staff.

After a bad experience with an Airbnb host, this hotel saved our trip, or at least the first couple of days. We were welcomed very nicely - even with no reservations - and were immediately helped out. The second night we got a free upgrade, as they needed the room. The hosts were amazingly friendly!! Good breakfast buffet in the...

Very friendly and helpful reception staff, good breakfast and nice rooms. Really well situated in the Plaka district being 10 minutes walk to the entrance to the Acropolis and other archaeological sites, with plenty of restaurants nearby. The hotels own rooftop restaurant is also very good and is no more expensive than other restaurants nearby. Good free wifi connectivity in...

This was the hotel our Rick Steves tour group stayed in at the beginning and end of our tour of Greece. It is a very nice, comfortable hotel with a friendly staff, a lovely roof bar with a great view of the acropolis and Parthenon, and an excellent breakfast buffet. I especially appreciated that we had a bathtub! My husband,...

For our 3 night, 2 day stay in Athens, this location could not have been more perfect. It is a short walk from Plaka, the Acropolis, the Acropolis museum, and more. The room was also a good size- we didn't feel cramped at all compared to other European hotel rooms we've stayed in- and you could see the Acropolis lit...

We spent 5 nights at the Hera hotel in Athens where we had an excellent vacation. The hotel is very well located, at the edge of Plaka but very quiet, the metro station Acropoli just next door. Lots of good restaurants around. The hotel is super clean, the staff very friendly, breakfast quite ok and the rooms are comfortable with...

Hera Hotel is a perfect location, within easy walking distance of the metro, of major museums and archeological sites, and of several outstanding restaurants. The rooms are extremely comfortable. For the first part of my stay, I had a room that looked across to the acropolis. Although it was a bit noisy (because of the noise from the street) it...

As others attest, the hotel is perfectly located for visiting the Akropolis and its Museum, the fun Plaka neighborhood, and other sites. Also right next to Akropolis metro station for venturing to different areas of Athens. Spotlessly clean, very accommodating staff, pleasant rooftop bar and dining area. A great choice between the super budget hotels (less than $80 per night)...

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.
