Excellent mid-range option for exploring Athens! Location is perfect, just a stone's throw from the Acropolis museum & metro station; the neighbourhood is pleasant and peaceful, some cafes & restaurants nearby and only a couple of minutes walk to Plaka (which is more lively). Very clean and with tasteful modern decor, friendly & helpful service. Nice buffet breakfast (but breakfast... More

My friends and I had a terrific time in Athens thanks to the great location and friendly staff. Right down the street from the fabulous Acropolis museum, within walking distance of the Acropolis and other marvelous museums and fun neighborhoods. Makis was particularly kind and helpful, but all the staff were terrific.

This hotel would drastically fail fire regs in the UK and would be shut down.7 storeys with one staircase,open to the ground and basement floors.If a fire started there,you would be trapped in your rooms.Fortunately I was on the first floor and could do a 'hang and drop' if required.

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.
