Great for a short stay! Small rooms but clean. Close walk to acropolis and nearby ruins (ten minutes)! Adorable restaurants down the street. Definitely would stay again, average room could hold two people comfortably, small balcony but not great views from them!

Great location for a visit to tour the Acropolis and major sites in Athens. Located just steps from the Acropolis museum, and easy walking to restaurants, shopping, etc. Junior suite had large terrace with amazing view of the Acropolis. Helpful staff.

We booked at the Hera to be near the ancient ruins and partly due to the photos we'd seen of the view from the rooftop restaurant. We weren't disappointed. The location is easily within walking distance to the Acropolis, the Temple of Zeus, the Plaka (cobblestone streets of restaurants and shops), the Acropolis museum and pretty much anything you'd want...

Staff was unhelpful and very disappointing. We booked the Jr. Suite with a view and had Ants in our bed. Not a very good hotel. We were disappointed in the knowledge of the staff up front and not being able to find kids activities in the city and also Vegan restaurants.

Dear guest, Thank you for your review. I am really sorry to read your incident in your room. As I spoke with the housekeeping department, the room was thoroughly cleaned & disinfected prior your arrival date. Additionally, our housekeeping supervisor informed me that crumbs were found on the bed. In any case, if you had informed us about that, we... More

This a great place to unwind after a visit around the city or a day trip to the Greek Islands. I would say the rooms were a little outdated (although bathroom was new) and teeny, tiny but that is to be expected in many European hotels (even the 4 stars). The proximity to the metro and many of the sites... More

This little European gem is located between the Acropolis and main business district. Actually from my balcony (extra $) I could almost touch the Acropolis and see the entire city, ancient vs. new. Breakfast buffet with fresh fruit and eggs, pastries, yogurt, juice, was included and I asked for capuccino and they brought it in a big glass cuppa. The... More

The hotel is average except the location. If you come for a sightseeing,it's a place to spent a few days. The conditioning system is awful. But... the roof-top restaurant is beautiful. Good food, excellent vines, perfect service and absolutely astonishing view over Acropolis.

My boyfriend and I booked one night at Hera Hotel for our last day in Greece, after a tour around Cyclades. The hotel is very nice, perfectly located close to the underground station (stop Acropolys) and just 5-8 mins walking from the Acropolys and its museum and it allowed us to visit easily all the area even if we were...

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.
