Have been here once in Nov 2014 and yet coming back in a month. The only hotel on the pedestrian route to Acropolis. Clean rooms, nice hall, comfortable cafe, kind staff, good full buffet breakfast. Amazing location in the very hearth of the pedestrian area at the very base of the very Acropolis hill. Have your breakfast or ouzo drink... More

I spent 3.5 nights here and enjoyed it thoroughly. Apart from the hiccup with the internet connection in my room, which was very unstable to say the very least (but worked well in the hotel lobby and restaurant), everything was fine. As a solo traveller, the size of my twin room was fine. I loved having the east-facing balcony so... More

The only good thing about this hotel is the location! The room was a disaster!!! I stayed with my 11 year old son and couldn’t sleep!

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.
