This is our third stay in this hotel. We like the location, it's almost in Plaka and within 10 minutes walk to Acropolis. Athens Museum is across the street. A lot of restaurants and shops around. Hotel is quite and clean, a good value for the money.

As a former flight attendant, very experienced world traveller, and writer of many reviews, I know much about how to use TA to try and avoid bad hotels. In this instance, I let myself down by relying too much on the hotel's website and its professional pictures, and not reading engough negative reviews. Had I paid more attention to them,...

Dear Mme, Thank you for posting your review on TripAdvisor. I am really sorry to read your comments about your stay with us. As checked your reservation, both rooms were for a Standard room with Acropolis view and those were allocated originally to you. I am not sure what our front desk agent said to you, but your rooms (404...

My 2 teenagers and I spent 2 nights at Hera Hotel while in Athens. The room was set up with an extra bed to accommodate 3 people. The room had a nice small balcony with two chairs that overlooked the street. All amenities were nice - including nice shower with great water pressure. The highlights of this hotel are the...

This hotel was very near the Acropolis and had a spectacular view from the rooftop restaurant. The staff was helpful and had a 24h concierge. My only complaint about the hotel is that the water was slow to drain from the shower. Which meant that as you showered the bathtub filled. Keep in mind this is a boutique hotel, expect...

We stayed at the Hera Hotel for two nights last week. We very much enjoyed our stay. You cannot beat the location being right by the Acropolis, the Plaka, and right off the metro. We had a room with a balcony which we loved, nice view of the Acropolis. The bedroom itself is tight--you had to move furniture to open...

Hera Hotel is a great choice for staying in Athens. It's in a great location; just a short walk to the Acropolis and the Plaka area. It's a very safe area and very easy to get to. The rooftop restaurant has a beautiful view of the Acropolis. It's very picturesque for a night time dinner. The rooms are a decent...

This hotel is in a great location. We arrived early morning off a long-haul flight, easily left our bags at the hotel and then explored Athens for the day before checking in mid-afternoon. In this time we took in the Acropolis, Parthenon, Temple of Zeus and had a nice lunch in a local restaurant. We then enjoyed dinner and drinks...

This is a higher end hotel in a great location - across from the Acropolis museum, a block from Acropoli Metro Station and 2 blocks from the Plaka. The rooms are well appointed with modern amenities - free wi-fi. The top floor restaurant/bar is very pleasant but pricey. There are many more reasonable food & beverage options within two blocks...

We stayed at the Hera for two nights. The rooms and bathrooms were beautiful, quiet, and very comfortable. We loved the rooftop bar and enjoyed the delicious breakfast buffet. We paid extra for an upper floor with a view, but we weren't in the room long enough to enjoy it -- plus we had the same great view from the...

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.
