“A very good hotel in a great city”
Reviewed 22 June 2012

Having arrived at 9:00 am, we were right away given a room which was very nice. We stayed for two nights, our room did not have a view (we chose a cheaper room) and was a bit on a small side, however it was spotless, the interior was quite new and the service in the hotel was excellent. The front desk was able to find us on a very short notice (7:00 pm) for the next morning, the guide who was invaluable in showing the Acropolis museum and the sites.

We walked everywhere and when it came leaving we walked to the car rental which was also very convenient. With all the negative press about Greece, we really like Athens. The food is great and cheap, you cannot seem to eat and not have a great view on Acropolis, and the people are very friendly.

I would be most definitely be back in Athens and Hera Hotel

We stayed at the Hera for 3 nights in June 2012. The rooms are a little dated but clean. Nice bathrooms and a decent shower. We had a junior suite with a great view of the Acropolis and a nice balcony. The hotel is located in the Plaka area so is convenient to shopping and the the Acropolis. The staff is very nice and helpful. They arranged a private guide for us to the Acropolis. They also prearranged transportation for us from the cruise port to the hotel and then to the airport on our departure day. They also have a nice buffet breakfast in the lobby dining room. The hotel has a FANTASTIC roof top bar ane restaurant. We ate there our first night in Athens and it was so good that we went back again. The staff at the restaurant was great. Very friendly and fun to talk to.

Myself and my wife spent a hugely enjoyable week at Hera Hotel on a part work/part holiday trip. Booked by my company for a week during in the shipping exhibition Posidonia I was bit concerned as previous times hotels, I was told have not been good, and despite my boss' assurance it was a great hotel the concern was my boss is the type who would get enthusiastic about grass growing(!)

However, as a first time visitor to Athens I would highly recommend this hotel. The location is superb for sightseeing there is so much is within walking distance, and also lots of eating places/bars in the Plaka. The hotel staff were always friendly and helpful - calling and advising on taxis etc - we went pretty far out of the city for some of the Posidonia parties. The rooms are not the biggest in the world but they are very well furnished and practical and free wifi always comes as a major plus. I comfortably used the room as my office one morning to work with my staff in Singapore. Breakfast is including and there is plenty of variety to fuel the start of your day

The roof top restaurant has a great view and was as good as any we ate in Athens - food quality, price and service wise. Try the whole squid - excellent.

All round a really good experience and I've already recommended to my parents should they fancy a long weekend in Athens.

This was our first trip to Athens and didn't know what to expect, The staff at the front desk was very nice and provided information about the area and things to see. This is a very nice hotel in a quiet area. The breakfast was great with everything from bacon and eggs to rolls and fruit. It was a 5 minute walk to the Acropolis and and not far from the Plaka area. If I'm ever in Athens again I would stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony so you can see the Acropolis.
