Stayed here for two nights. We stayed on level 2 in room 203. It looked as though our room had been renovated recently. It was clean and tidy. We had a nice little balcony that overlooked the pedestrian street below. The beds were comfortable and the pillows were fluffy. The included breakfast was decent, with freshly squeezed orange juice and... More

We booked this hotel for a day/night stop over in Athens before flying back to Australia. Great neat hotel in a fab location. Lots of cafes & bars near by as well as walking distance to the Acropolis. Reasonably priced for location especially being European summer. Staff friendly & helpful.

I reviewed this hotel a couple of years ago and revisited this June on another trip to the Greek islands. It really is a fantastic little hotel. The newly renovated rooms, whilst on the small side, are spotless, with everything you need. This is not a luxury hotel but the room rate is a real bargain. The location is good... More

This is a nice hotel that is close to the ferry ports in Pireaus. There was nothing overly special about it, but it was clean and a place to sleep. I was very impressed with the helpfulness of the staff. We arrived very early (8 am) after an overnight ferry trip. I was sick (nauseous) and had been sick most... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Phidias. It is a small, old-fashioned hotel, not a modern luxury hotel. The location is great, on a pedestrian street near the Acropolis, with lots of cafes, lots of people strolling around, and a very pleasant atmosphere in the neighborhood. Our balcony was right over the street. It is walking distance from the... More

This hotel is lovely and clean and has an excellent location. It is only a 5-10min walk from Plaka and has a beautiful view of the Acropolis. The cafe downstairs serves excellent coffee and the staff is extremely friendly! The area around is filled with cafes that the locals hang out in and nice restaurants.

4 wonderful nights. The smart new renovation has all the staff happy, and helpful. Our room overlooked the outdoor cafe. Double glazing meant nights were quiet. Cafe staff were very good, and gave good eating recommendations including a Crete restaurant.

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.
