If you're going to stay in Athens, you must stay at Hera Hotel! I cannot find adequate words to describe the kind, helpful staff, the perfect location, and the quiet, beautiful accommodations. All this and a fabulous breakfast as well make this a must stay in Athens. Every part of the experience of staying at the Hera was exceptional!

We arrived at the Hera hotel around 9.30 am after a long haul from Australia hoping to drop our luggage off so we could check in later. The front reception indicated that some other guests had left early and that they would ring and get our room ready in half an hour !! We were so appreciative, but the best... More

The Hotel Hera is a nice three-star hotel. It is not fancy and it is not chic. It does not offer outstanding toilet articles, soft towels or high thread-count sheets. It does not offer an ornate or interesting lobby or breakfast room. The breakfast itself is passable; like most of our other hotels in Greece/Crete, it suffers from old-looking, overripe... More

I booked the Hera based on the review score on Booking.com and it's proximity to the Acropolis. Having never been to Athens before I wasn't sure which area I should stay in so I chose a hotel close to the Acropolis. The hotel is located only minutes from the Acropolis and the Plaka which is an area of shopping/dining completely... More

This hotel is so well located you can walk to so many places, shopping, restaurants. Nice, friendly staff. Room was fine, with a small balcony to sit out and have a drink. Breakfast inclusion was just fine, service was excellent. Plenty of choice for us. Only thing to watch out for is the high bath tub when you shower, but... More

My wife and I stayed in the Hera hotel for two nights prior to embarking on a cruise from Piraeus. We loved the Hera Hotel; it is only a few minutes walks straight down the street from the Acropolis Metro Station and only 5 mins from Plaka and the Acropolis/Acropolis Museum, not to mention a plethora of excellent restaurants, cafes...

My wife and I stayed at the Hera for just over a week, and we enjoyed our stay. The room was very clean, as well as the linens. The hotel has a neat feel to it, a classy style that creates an old school atmosphere. The major selling point is the location though. It's a stones throw from the acropolis... More

The hotel was very conveniently located to the Acropolis, shopping, and nice restaurants in Athens. The rooms were nicely sized and very clean. The breakfast was a nice buffet with american and local favorites to enjoy before a day of touring. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

A very nice and genuine 4 star hotel. The staff were superb; the lift worked well; the rooms were spacious and comfortable; breakfast was all you could want; roof-top restaurant with adequate menu was good. What else does one need?

The hotel is centrally located just a short 5 minute walk to the Acropolis. Rooms are small but adequate. Our room rate did not include breakfast so the first morning we paid the 15 Euros per person for their breakfast - not really worth it, but we needed something quick before our tour that morning. There are other places to... More

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.
