Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
Hera Hotel garners acclaim for its exceptional location, a stone's throw from the Acropolis and nestled amidst a variety of dining venues, although some guests note the potential for noise. The rooftop restaurant's breathtaking views of the Acropolis are a highlight, along with the hotel's overall cleanliness and charming ambiance. Rooms are celebrated for their pristine condition and amenities, despite being on the smaller side and occasionally offering less impressive views. While service is generally lauded for being attentive, especially at breakfast, visitors should be mindful of unexpected charges to ensure the hotel's value meets their expectations.

Our Junior suite was ready for us early when we checked in. The view from the balcony was absolutely fantastic. This hotel is situated within just a few minutes walk from the entrance to the Acropolis, it is also in a perfect spot for lots of different restaurants and bars. The room was nicely decorated and all members of staff were very polite and friendly. We ate in the restaurant 1 night and the food and wine were very good. Would highly recommend this hotel for a visit to Athens but make sure that you get one of the high rooms at the front.

Hotel's Favorite
Stayed here for one night 22-23 September in two rooms on the third floor with another couple. Room description included an "Acropolis view" but we could see only a small fraction of the top of the Acropolis from our rooms. The view from the 5th floor restaurant was much better. Nevertheless, Dimitris and Elina very patient, professional and helpful in checking us in early, providing directions and getting us oriented to the area. Breakfast was more than the typical European continental fare and was actually quite good. Location was also favorable with a 10-20 minute walk to Acropolis and nearby shopping/restaurants. Rooms were typically small but clean, functional and well-equipped.

We were enchanted as soon as we entered the elegant lobby of the Hera Hotel. Our room was ready early so we checked out our Junior Suite Acropolis View Room on the 5th floor while our bags were delivered. A complimentary bottle of wine bearing their rooftop Peacock restaurant label awaited us. We popped the cork enjoying a glass on our balcony as we took in the view. The room was clean with a very comfortable bed and linens. The staff was helpful in making our reservations for visiting the acropolis and arranging our transfer to the airport in 2 days. Breakfast was included but our flight was early so they provided us with a nice breakfast bag to take to the airport. The location of the hotel was convenient to many cafes and restaurants, just steps away from both the Acropolis Musuem and the southern entrance to the Acropolis and easy walking distance to Syntagma Square, the Ancient and Roman Agoras as well as the Botanical Gardens. We loved the Peacock Restaurant. The food was so good we dined there both nights. Soup, appetizers, salad, entrees and dessert were outstanding. The appetizers, salad and dessert were easily large enough to split which we did.

If you are gong to Athens you most likely want to see the Parthenon and Acropolis. If you are fortunate enough to be able to stay a few days the best view and most comfortable lodging is at the Hera Hotel. My beautiful bride and I got to spend two stays at Hera this month. Our room had the perfect balcony view of the Parthenon and it was such a charming place to stay. We stayed in room 501 and 502, a Junior Suite. The rooftop restaurant was fantastic, the morning buffet breakfast was plentiful and varied. And the staff, the staff was friendly and helpful. They arranged transfers from the Athens Airport (twice) and the transfers to and from our cruise ship. Centrally located to the tourist area, the Acropolis itself, the museum as well as the delightful old town Placa were just minutes away by foot. The highest recommendation goes to Hera Hotel in Athens.

Charming elegance. Our rooms were lovely. Our balconies were so spacious and looked out directly on the Acropolis, and other monuments were visible as well. The hotel is within walking distance of the Acropolis. The staff was open and friendly and always ready to help. We planned to visit the Acropolis, of course, and the manager gave us extensive advice on how to enter (there isn't just one way and the two are very different!) and what to see. The top floor restaurant is first class! Excellent food with unique dishes. Perfect service. I can't say enough good things about this hotel. Okay, one bad thing. The elevator is reeeeaaally slow.

Great location & hotel, loved the room - we could see the Parthenon from the balcony! Staff friendly & the room was quiet once balcony doors closed even though room was close to the roads & busy area. Walking distance to everywhere - we did 20,000 steps each day! Clean and tidy and modern. Lovely breakfast. Very lucky to have stayed here, loved Athens 🇬🇷

Ok so the title says it all. 10 mins walk and actually in sight of the Acropolis from the rooftop bar area. I'll come back to the 'bar' in a bit. Right - 4 star hmmm. Ok this is Greece and 4 stars here equals 2 star in Spain. Fair's fair, it's immaculately clean and well presented and the breakfast food is exceptionally good if not rather basic. For 15 eros a person you can eat yourself silly! The rooms are very small but as I say this is Athens and like Paris and Rome, the hotels are very small with even smaller bedrooms. All the staff here are very courteous and professional and will go out of their way to help you, they arranged a taxi for us remotely from the UK and it was a good price and bang on time collecting us from the airport to the hotel. I would say this is probably one of the better hotels in the area, as I said the Athens hotels are akin to Rome and Paris, with high narrow buildings and limited space. Please don't let me put you off because we had a wonderful time and on foot we visited all the wonderful sights of Athens very easily. The immediate area to the right of this quaint little hotel is known as Plaka and in my opinion this is one of the finer areas of the city for eateries and bars etc. Ermou street is the main shopping precinct and again this is only 25 minutes walk away through Plaka, can't fault that at all. Right, back to the hotel rooftop bar, nice idea guys but this needs some promotion. The views are good from up here but i'm afraid there's little by way of vibe. Maybe an injection of some background music and possibly an early happy hour to actually get folks up there for a chat and a drink. We went up every early evening of our stay if only out of loyalty but left quickly after one drink as it's such a non event. So in summary - Would I recommend this hotel - Definitely Would I return to this hotel - Definitely So don't go to this hotel expecting the Ritz Carlton or the Hilton Hampton as this is Greece and as I said the hotels are a little bit different but you will enjoy and I thank the hotels management for providing us with a great stay.

Lovely hotel in fantastic location near Acropolis and museum. Stayed for three nights, before and after cruise. The staff were incredibly helpful and always cheerful when dealing with enquiries. We had a second floor room at the front of hotel, which was spacious and very clean. Surprisingly we had a small, but ideal balcony for two, from which you could watch the world go by. Although on a busy street with bars open until late, there was no problem with late night noise. We ate each evening in the hotel restaurant which was exceptional value for money. Beautiful food in large quantities! All in all, a great hotel, and would definitely recommend for a stay of a few days.

This is a hidden gem of a hotel! We initially selected it because of its proximity to the Acropolis, the new Acropolis museum (2 blocks), and the old town or Plaka for dining and shopping. We were not disappointed. We are older adults and can’t walk long distances. The location was perfect!! The restaurant on the top floor has a stunning view of the Acropolis and Parthenon as well as delicious and reasonably priced food! In the morning they serve a full and delicious breakfast downstairs. The real gem of this little hotel is Dimitri and the staff!!!! Unbelievably accommodating and kind!! They arranged our transfers through Welcome Pickups and arranged two private side tours for us. I just can’t say enough good things about this little hotel including a very fair nightly rate. The room was small but nice and marble bathroom with shower looked as if it had been recently renovated. The only caution I would give is that our room overlooked the street and was noisy late into the night. We were there the last 3 days of November, it was quite warm that week and the air conditioning had already been turned off so we opened the door to the balcony to get cool air in the night. We were so tired the noise didn’t bother us but if you have trouble sleeping if it’s noisy, you should request a quieter location.

The Hera Hotel was truly an exceptional experience and I cannot recommend it enough for your trip to Athens. From the breathtaking views of the Acropolis on the rooftop, to the restaurant providing two of the best meals I've ever eaten, to the lovely breakfast, and simply terrific service, all around Hera is an easy 5 stars for me. Rooms ★★★★★ Service ★★★★★ Location ★★★★★ Hotel highlights: Incredible view · Cozy · Great value · Exceptional service and food · Accessible Nearby activities: In the there mornings my wife and I would get up early for breakfast and enjoy the excellent food and coffee. We were awestruck when we realized we could actually (roll) to the foot of the Acropolis ourselves, and had a lovely walk from breakfast to the Acropolis museum which is literally across the street. This route was fully accessible, and there were plenty of cafes and restaurants to stop to along the way. Another benefit of this hotel's location is its proximity to the Plaka. The Plaka district is choc full of restaurants, shops and activity. You could spend a whole vacation just exploring it. It all is within walking distance. Safety: Incredibly safe. Abundant police patrols, and generally located in a nicer touristy area. Walkability: Excellent proximity to the Acropolis, museum, and Acropoli metro station (which is also across the street). Abundant cafes, souvlaki, gelato and shops are nearby, and the plaka is only a brief walk away. Food & drinks: The food at the restaurant was nothing short of incredible and the service from Evie was top notch. Accessibility and rooms: My wife and I are both physically disabled and use power wheelchairs, and as one can imagine, Greece is not the easiest country when it comes to accessibility. By pure luck I ended up finding the Hera Hotel in my research for accessible travel, and I can happily report that they do have accessible rooms that will accommodate two power wheelchairs. We stayed in two different rooms while there, both had (very small) roll in showers with the handheld attachment. They provided a shower chair (like the ones you can order on Amazon in the US) which worked well for us. The rooms were a little cramped so we did have a staff member remove a small desk in the room to create more space for us, but after that it was extremely workable. The elevator is a bit small, and will only accommodate one wheelchair and one extra passenger, but it worked fine while we were there. Given the typical nature of Greece I highly doubted the rooftop would be accessible but I was happily proven wrong. The staff quickly brought out a ramp for us to get upstairs, and when I saw the view of the city and the Acropolis it made me quite emotional. It certainly was a dream come true for us to visit Greece, and to have such an excellent place to stay that was so inclusive, we couldn't have asked for anything better. During our non-contiguous arrival and departure there the staff was extremely helpful with our luggage and loading it into our accessible transport. For those that are looking for accessible transport, please look into Prestige Transport in Athens. They were excellent. Overall I cannot recommend Hera Hotel enough. Staying there made us feel so welcome and cared for and was a great part of an amazing trip. I hope we can return to Greece for another stay with them as soon as possible!
