This hotel was perfect for our December trip. It was cheap enough that we could have separate rooms, location perfect for walking around Athens or taking metro to get outside of town, good restaurants nearby, friendly staff, good breakfast, etc. not for people who want luxury, but an excellent value. Will return to this property or the Herodion.

Excellent staff, really helpful helping us to find our way around. The hotel is within walking distance to every main attraction, the Parthenon, the Acropolis museum, the Plaka, (loved the Plaka), and the breakfast was to die for. There is something about greek yoghurt that you just gotta love. We were there in 2015, amazing

We really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is close to the acropolis, many restaurants, the Hop On Hop Off bus and the neighborhood has a great family feel. The streets were busy but not noisy, I was very comfortable. I loved sitting on the patio and watching kids and their parents walking to school. The hotel was very clean and...

This small gem of a hotel is only two block from the Acropolis Museum on a quiet residential street. A 5-minute walk will take you to the most touristy spot in town, the boulevard that circles the Acropolis. The rooms are small but very clean. The included breakfast is a nice start every morning. The staff are super helpful and...

In the shadow of the Parthenon and alongside the Acropolis Museum, this hotel is centrally located. A short walk from the station and restaurants and the narrow streets of the Plaka district Our room was small but beautiful with views of the Parthenon. Staff were friendly and engaging and anxious to assist at all times Thumbs up

The room is not to big and the beds are well used. Breakfast is good, the staff very helpful and service minded. The rooftop has a wonderful view to Acropolis. The location is really good, you can walk to most interesting places.

This was a wonderful place to stay. Relatively small and simple but the breakfast was excellent, the roof top terrace had an amazing view of the acropolis and the people working in the hotel were so friendly and helpful. Couldn't recommend it enough.

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.
