I began my first Greek vacation in Athens at the Hera Hotel...a small, basic hotel with a big heart. The best thing about the hotel is its location. It's perfect walking distance (5 minutes) to La Placa and right in the center of the city perfectly accessible to the new Acropolis museum (10-15 minutes walking) and a few blocks away from the Acropolis train station (The subway is super easy to navigate and all stops have English sub-titles). Other walkign distance highlights include Hadrian's Arch and Temple of Zeus (10 minutes).
The rooms were small - just like most European hotel rooms - but clean and definitely served its purpose. The only downside is the tiny elevator that fits 2 people at a time, so be prepared to walk up the stairs.
Highlights are the buffet breakfast (can you say yummy?) and the view of the Acropolis from the hotel restaurant.
Definitely a place to stay if you're making a quick stop in Athens and are interested in being close enough to the "action" to avoid taking taxis everywhere. Enjoy!
