We have the most wonderful stay in the hotel. Thanks to the kindness of the receptionist, Michael, who offered us a superior room, room 507, with a breathtaking view of the temple of Zeus from our balcony. And Michael and other staff seemed always willing to help and inform us about anything we needed. Two remarks only: they could offer...

Great local hotel withing walking distance to great restaurants, shops and local culture. The rooms are very clean and hotel staff very helpful in any matter. We would stay here again when we travel to Greece which is such a wonderful country.

This place had wonderful breakfasts each day and a wonderful view from the rooftop restaurant, which doubles as their gathering place for wi-fi at night. My only complaint was our difficulty with getting the thermostat to work properly. Since we arrived in the middle of the night, we toughed it out the first night. The second night someone came to...

Had to cancel this hotel as my daughter's flight was cancelled and she was stranded in London. I booked this hotel via Expedia and although the cancellation deadline had passed, the hotel authorized a full refund. I was very impressed with how this was handled and will be staying here in May when I visit my daughter who is studying...

We stayed here for four days prior to a cruise and could not have been more pleased. Before we left, I read a review that said to take the train to the Syntagma station. That works, but when you're hot, tired, and hauling a suitcase a better to choice is the Acropoli station which is less than 100 yards from...

I decided to write this review although I lodged in this hotel in december 2010, so things could have changed a bit since then. Nevertheless, I found this place charming, clean and very well located. I decided to stay there for a week because of other travelers good reviews and I could realize they were right. The rooms are comfortable...

Getting there: from the airport we took the x95 which you can catch right outside the airport exit. Tickets are 5 Euros each way and will go to Syntagma station. This is not the closest station to the hotel; Acropoli is but we chose to walk from Syntagma. From where the bus drops you off, just follow the same road...

We have stayed here twice before embarking on a cruise. It is a fantastic location and the rooftop restaurant has excellent views of the Acropolis and nearby neighbourhood as well as a decent eveniing menu and good breakfast menu. Good for a walk around nearby local shops and restaurants too. Would recommend

Stayed at the Athens Gate in November at the start of our month abroad. The room was very clean and comfortable and exactly what we needed after a long journey from Miami the night before. Our luggage did not arrive with us and was promised to be delivered later that night from the airport, so we didn't need any help...

As everyone else says this hotel for location cannot be beaten. We stayed at this hotel in the late 70's and we remembered staying there, not many hotels can you say that about. The views from the roof restaurant are amazing. Super friendly/helpful staff, couldn't be faulted, plenty breakfast choice, hot and cold would definately stay again. The down side....

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.
