4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

We stayed here one night prior to a 4 days bus tour. Dinky bathroom, but very clean...kind of plush actually. Nice breakfast. Hard beds. Airconditioned. Good, typical, breakfast. There is a wonderful old bakery around the corner you shouldn't miss.

We stayed at this hotel for one night prior to boarding a cruise. The location was very convenient. The hotel was well maintained, and the staff was very helpful. We were able to check in early after our trans-Atlantic flight. The breakfast was excellent, and we had a good dinner at the sister hotel with a free glass of wine.

Professional staff. We had a spacious room with a huge balcony with a view to Acropolis) Next room to us seemed to be quite a tiny one. Nothing to complain about the breakfast either. Best thing about this hotel from our point of view was the location; very close to all attractions but a little bit away from the busiest... More

Recommend by tripadvisor and although slightly disappointed with size of bedroom; staff service, cleanliness of rooms and ample breakfast made it a great stay. This is so close to all Athens monuments, underground railway station and ample restaurants within 3 minute walk. Wifi brilliant but staff make the place. Enjoy.

I booked this hotel to be close to the Acropolis museum. Wasn't looking for something too fancy. I got what I was expecting, bedroom maybe a bit small but acceptable, bathroom on almost Japanese standards (really tiny) but clean and manageable . Breakfast was more than expected, although maybe stronger on quantities than quality. Overall the place is pretty decent... More

Looking for a convenient hotel for your trip to Athens? This is the place! The rooms are on the smaller side but the hotel itself is clean, front desk is efficient, breakfast was decent, and the wifi works well. It’s within a 5 minute (probably less) walk from the Acropolis. It’s easy to get to by metro from the airport,... More

The hotel is fantastic. The location is perfect; a short walk to every place a tourist wants to visit. The rooms are not extravagant...but the a/c works, the bathrooms are remodeled (minus the ancient hairdryer attached to the wall), we had a nice breakfast included with our stay. There's a very tiny bar in the lobby. Everyone was helpful. There... More

Stayed there 5 nights. Fantastic location, near Acropolis and other sights, dozens of restaurants and shopping. The service was the best. The only improvement needed is to provide a couple of English speaking TV stations.

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.
