Great location in South Plaka. A couple blocks from the Acropli museum. Rooms were small but excpected. Breakfast was good. Staff was nice. Their sister hotel the Herodion was a block away with an amazing roof top bar and restaurant. We went there for dinner one night and had drinks there a few nights. I would suggest going to the...

Very nice little hotel close to the Acropolis and everything you would want to see in a short stay in Athens. Close to good restaurants and the Acropolis Museum and the train to the airport. I would definitely stay here again when in Athens.

This was the perfect location for a quick stop in Athens. A 5 minute walk to the acropolis and steps away from the plaka (little shops and restaurants). Very safe to be walking around at night. I booked a car through the hotel to pick us up from the airport, but it never showed up so maybe reconfirm with them... More

We had a family room with 2 separate sleeping quarters and a double terrace (large) directly below the Acropolis - so close and in the evening it was amazing. Hotel is down the street from the Acropolis, the Museum, and the Plaka for shopping and dining. Breakfast was great at the hotel. The staff were very helpful (needed a power... More

We were a family of 4 adults and stayed at this hotel for 2 nights (4th to 6th of July) on our return from visiting the islands. Our first interaction with the hotel reception desk was when we were given one double room and one triple room. The double room was small and we were worried that there was no... More

Absolutely wonderful staff. Always greeted us with a smile and a helping hand. We only spent one day in Athens, however they showed us exactly how to use our time and booked us into a magnificent restaurant. Breakfast was lovely and the location was perfect! Very highly recommend this place!!

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighborhood 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 pedestrianized 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 centerpiece 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.
