Close to the Acropolis museum and Makrigianni Street for several restaurants. The hotel has a nice bar and restaurant and breakfast was very good. The room had a faint smell and the bathroom had a tired look, particularly the shower which could do with updating. Overall, a very good base for a stay in Athens although I thought it was... More

Choose the hotel because of its proximity to the Acropolis and the Acropolis museum. We were not disappointed at all. The location clearly is a tremendous asset. You're just around the corner from the Acropolis Museum and the restaurants on Makrigianni. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The breakfast is adequate. There's a great rooftop restaurant with a close-up... More

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighbourhood 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 pedestrianised 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 centrepiece 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.
