Very clean room, very nice staff and very convenient location. We travel extensively and would definitely stay here again our next time in Athens! We happened to be there during Athens' first rain of the year and the hotel staff was more than happy to provide us with umbrellas for our walk to dinner. Highly recommend Hera Hotel!!

Hotel is in a great location with a view of the Acroplis from our room and the rooftop bar. Very beautiful at night. Staff was excellent. The breakfast room was very pleasant and spotless. Our room was supposedly clean and ready for us but the crew had apparantly skipped the bathroom. This was late at night but the staff reacted... More

We had a great experience in Athens staying at the Hera. The staff was friendly and accommodating and you can't beat the location. Right up the block is restaurant row, the Parthenon is within walking distance (bring sneakers) and the Parliament building is 1 subway stop away. You can also pickup a hop-on/ hop-off bus down the block that will... More

The hotel is minutes from the Metro and proved a good base for us before we headed for the islands. Its almost opposite the Acropolis museum so you are at the heart of the tourist areas. It's quiet and clean and reasonably priced although the rooms are a little small. Breakfast was average but not bad. The rooftop restaurant is... More

Lovely hotel in a great area. Very comfortable, rooms clean and nicely decorated. The food in the rooftop restaurant was great! With a fabulous view of the Acropolis. Only complain I was dying for a bath after traveling for 4 weeks with only showers! Which was one of the reasons we chose this hotel! No stop for the bath!!! When... More

Beautifully furnished, clean, extremely polite and attentive staff, excellent food. Walking distance from the acropolis museum and parthenon. Great view from the roof garden where you can enjoy your dinner or drink. All you might need for an unforgettable stay while exploring the city or business trips.

Location is perfect to explore ancient Athens A few minutes walk from the Acropolis museum and the entrance to Acropolis hill and the walk to the Acropolis. 100 metres from the plaza of restaurants - close enough to roll back to bed but far enough away to enjoy a quiet sleep. The hotel staff are very helpful. The rooms are... More

The Hera is right at the foot of the Acropolis. Its rooftop restaurant has a view of the Parthenon, and offers excellent cuisine. The Akropoli metro station is five minutes away so it is really easy to reach anywhere in Athens - including the airport - from here. The staff are really helpful and friendly, the breakfast is excellent and... More

This hotel provided everything I needed for a night's stay before heading out to the islands-- quaint balcony from which I could see the ruins, quiet, comfortable bed and was located a stone's throw from pedestrian thoroughfares where delicious restaurants, trendy shops and the Acropolis were situated. Would stay here again.

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.
