Philippos Hotel is literally steps from the Acropolis. I stayed there will my mom and two sisters... we got a quad room which was actually kind of nice, it had a balcony overlooking a cute quiet street and a door separating the room into two small. The showers actually had good pressure too! What was best about Philippos (besides the... More

This hotel is a great choice for a holiday in Athens. It's location is unbeatable! It's on the same street as the Acropolis museums and all the sites of the Acropolis and other sites of Ancient Greece (such as the stadium) are within an easy walking distance as are a number of restaurants and shops. I was particularly impressed with... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in a four-bedded room. The rooms was a bit small but still OK. AC was a bit slow. From our balcony you could almost get a glimpse of the Acropolis. As we arrived by ferry we came to the hotel quite early in the morning. They offered us to have breakfast for just €5... More

We had a great stay here as the first stop in our Greek holiday. We had had good correspondence from the hotel with regards to getting there from the airport, and they picked one of us up from the airport for a reasonable price. Our room was simple but clean and enough space for the both of us. We had... More

Friendly staff, clean rooms, breakfast included a great value. It is very close to the Acropolis and the museum. Seeing the Acropolis at night is breathtaking. A short walk past the tourist shops you will find great local hillside restaurants.

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.
