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.

So, it took me awhile to think about what I wanted to write about this hotel. It wasn't what we expected, but it wasn't bad at all. We were only in Athens a short time, and we missed our first night because of weather delays in the states. I was able to call and they were happ

Our travel plans involve flying in from Santorini and arriving late (around midnight), doing some sightseeing in Athens in the morning and then heading to the airport for a late afternoon (around 5pm) flight. Looking for a hotel that will be central to everything so we can optimize our sightseeing time, but one that will also store our luggage while we walk around. Based on the reviews it seems this hotel is very close to everything, and I did see a review that said they would help arrange for a taxi from and to the airport. My main remaining question is whether the hotel will store luggage until we are ready to leave. Anyone have a similar experience, or maybe the hotel can answer this question?
I saw them storing luggage for plenty of people so I don't think it'd be an issue at all. There were also lots of taxis in the area and the Metra is less than a 5 min walk in case you want to venture to other neighborhoods. Btw - it doesn't seem like you have much time just so just be aware that during high season there can be a loonnnggg line to visit the Acropolis and it'll be crowded with people.

Hello, if we arrive early in the morning is there somewhere we can leave our bags until check-in time? Thanks.
There is no problem leaving your bags until your room is ready. They will also store your bags when you check out if you are not ready to leave. Lovely place, lovely people

Can you send me a picture of a room that would accommodate 3 adults and 1 child? The pictures on the site only show 2 doubles and I want to know if 1 room can accommodate all of us. Thank you
We do have quadruple rooms in our hotel Philippos. It is one double bed and a sofa bed that can be turned to a bed. Unfortunately the pictures on the site are the ones we have available at the moment. For further information please contact reservations@herodion.gr
