I stayed at the Hera for one night on my way through Athens. The room was smallish but clean, fresh, comfortable and quiet. The location is central to several key sights including the Acropolis. The staff were attentive and helpful.

Hotel's Favorite
We stayed at this hotel 10 years ago, loved it, so decided to stay there again this time for 2 nights. We weren't disappointed, everything was as good as we remembered. We found the service to be very good. Questions were answered in a professional, polite and helpful manner. We were tired the first night so had room service dinner from the hotel restaurant. The food was delivered by a very friendly young man and the food was very good. The room had lots of light (important to me), was quiet, and the bed was comfortable. The shower was great as was the A/C. The buffet breakfast is held in a beautifully decorated room and the food is varied and plentiful. Even if you pay extra for it, their buffet breakfast is definitely worth any extra cost. The area is walkable to different restaurants (we went to God's Restaurant, having good memories of it 10 years ago) and easy to walk to the Acropolis and Museum.

My daughter and I stayed for two nights at the hotel. The staff was welcoming and helpful giving us directions for the area. Since it was our first time in Greece, we needed a lot of guidance and Dimitris and Konstantin were exceedingly helpful. Konstantin recommended Attikos Restaurant for a dinner and it was one of the best meals we have ever had including a spectacular view of the Parthenon. The accommodations were clean and comfortable. We would highly recommend the hotel for anyone visiting Athen.

An excellent 4 night stay at the Hera Hotel. We took a 5th floor Junior Suite with a balcony - with excellent day and night views over the Acropolis and Parthenon. The hotel, as well as having its own restaurant, is very handily situated for some 10 to 12 reataurants all within a few hundred yards further up the street. Breakfast was very good and extensive - and Covid precautions were very evident throughout the hotel. The hotel is handily positioned within walking distance of Syntagma Sqaure, Parliament Building and the Plaka. It has handy access to the Acropolis Museum and South East entrance to the Acropolis Hill and much can be seen on the walk up to the Parthenon. It is close to Acropolis Station - and other public transport is close. The hop-on, hop-off buses stop very close by if you want to tour around the City.

Dimitris and Alayna are the sweetest, nicest people and will make your stay in Athens perfect. I just loved this hotel. Small but a real jewel and just blocks from the Acropolis and the Plaka, thus is an ideal spot to be in for an Athens trip. It's worth it to pay extra for the 5th floor Jr Suite for the lovely view of the Acropolis especially when it's all lit up at night. The things that I enjoy when traveling as far as accommodations were all here at the Hera...china cup for my coffee, bathtub or shower option, storage for my clothes so I don't have to live out of my suitcase. And unique. I don't enjoy the cookie cutter hotels that have the same plastic wood grained furniture that I see over and over. The Hera has real wood furniture! It's small and sweet and interesting and run by some wonderful folks. I didn't give it five stars because you have to be careful draining the bathtub because it can flood the bathroom if done wrong. Otherwise perfect.

The staff were very helpful from the moment we arrived. Every single staff member we spoke to greeted us with a smile and wanted to help us with any queries we had. The room itself was decent size. It was fairly small however for a city break where you are out and about most of the time, it was just what you needed to come back and relax. The hotel was clean and although appeared a little dated, it gave it a cosy feel which was nice. It was very quiet in the hotel but I think this was due to COVID-19 and going there in December!

The hotel was nice. Rather small room but since we were there to see the city it was okay for us. Okay breakfast. Beautiful restaurant at the top. And best of all: Outstanding location! Extremely close to Acropolis, Plaka and all the ancient sights.

We paid extra for the Junior Suite with the Acropolis view, and it was great. We only spent one night at the Hera Hotel, but found the room comfortable and large enough with a large balcony to enjoy the view. We initially planned to have our teen sleep in the sofa bed and it would have been tight with 3 in the room, but doable. Instead we booked a small regular room for 2 teens, and they even had a small balcony (without a view). The breakfast is worth including in your room, plenty of food and a great start to a full day of sightseeing. COVID precautions are in place, and we enjoyed our stay.

Think of the Hera as a large boutique European hotel with appropriately small rooms and tiny lift, but comfortable and protocol compliant. Our reception experience was friendly and helpful. The top floor restaurant's dinner menu is, of course, limited in selections but offering tasty options. Make reservations for a table with the Acropolis view! Mixologist Nilson Bit is one of the best! Try his Aperol Spritz for an apéritif and/or a Limoncello for a digestif. Strike up a conversation with Nilson to enjoy his dry sense of humor. Nice breakfast buffet on entry level and made-to-order omelets, etc. are available. The Hera location is ideal for the active visitor (for pleasure or business) with most must-see landmarks within walking distance. Just a few blocks from the Acropolis Museum, the hotel is on a street with a buzz and not far from neighborhoods worth experiencing. Oh yes, make dinner reservations one night at Balcony restaurant (touted by locals) just one block away and request a table on the balcony (lap blankets and heaters if needed. "Yamas!"
