Having stayed in many Athens places we thought that, on balance, and accounting for the price that this was a great place to stay. Comfortable without being lavish, friendly and with an outstanding location behind the Acropolis Museum, this was great. We will certainly stay again.

This place is really cool. Great large rooms and the breakfast was really nice. Good that there was a restaurant and sportsbar attached. Awesome location five minute walk from the acropolis and half an hour walk from some really nice and cheap restaurant strips. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed here at the start and end of our trip, and really enjoyed our stay here. The staff were really helpful, and the room was great. The highlight is the rooftop bar of he sister Athens Backpackers hostel, where you can sip beer whilst watching the sunset behind the Acropolis. Stunning!

This place was great. AMAZING LOCATION! Right next to everything! There are 2 locations, not far from each other, so make sure you know which you are staying at. My only issue was that the Wifi was poor in the room. Kept cutting out and had speed issues when connected.

These studios are great for solo travelers! I stayed in an all female 6 bed room, which had storage lockers and a little closet area to hang any clothing. The hotel offers a free shot of ouzo next door and a discount at the cafe as well! The free breakfast next door was nice and I highly appreciated the free... More

Two words....."Air conditioning"! The studio is okay, if it weren't for the a/c, it would get 2 stars. The location is FABULOUS, however, and there is a decent breakfast included in the price, along with a one time 15% discount on a meal at the Fish and chips place, and one free ouzo each at the sports bar.

Hi Annie, thank you so much for the feedback. Sorry if the wifi was spotty during your stay, if a lot of people try to log in at the same time it might run a bit slower than usual. Promise faster wifi next time and our best effort to turn your 3star review to 5! Safe travels. Best, Kristina More

Clean, very nice and helpful staff, huge room, awesome location, and bar/restaurant right next door was nice. The shower made the whole bathroom wet, but we were able to get more towels. Luggage storage was also convenient.

Great location. Friendly staff. Got a private room with balcony. Bathroom not great as water went everywhere and there was a squeegee to use. Walking tour €6 but more like a talking tour. 4hours I wanted to see more but there was a lot of sitting and talking by the guide. Overall a good place to stay.

Hi Sandra, we're glad to see you enjoyed your stay, especially the location and the staff! Sorry to hear you weren't 100% pleased with the walking tour, our guides try to give as much information as possible and get carried away sometimes. We hope to see you back here soon! Best, Kristina More

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.
