I booked 4 nights at this hotel it was a special birthday trip for my husband. The room I booked was the superior room. The room was very small compared to other superior rooms we have stayed in. When we questioned about the size we were told all the rooms were the same size at the hotel and the room...

We stayed in this hotel for 6 nights. The staff were unfailingly pleasant and helpful. The hotel is clean and simple. It is in a perfect location for walking to Athens attractions. In the rooftop restaurant, you can choose to eat with a view of the Parthenon or with a view of Zeus' temple. Sort of unbelievable for this small...

We stayed at the hotel for 5 nights and it was wonderful! My husband and i wake late and we would often arrive for breakfast shortly before they close. The staff would leave the food for us unlike other hotels we experienced, where the staff would clear in a hurry. The spread is good and the balcony offers a lovely...

The hotel itself is very simple, clean and nice but the views and the localization are the best! We did everything in Athens by foot. Try to get the suite - usually not that expensive and your room will have a huge patio with views to the Acropolis and Zeus Temple. Drinking wine in the patio while seeing them at...

Spend two nights in this hotel while on our visit to Athens and we really enjoyed the location, all the main attractions are within walking distance and there are a lot of restaurants and bars nearby. We had booked the Executive Room and the view was amazing over the Acropolis with direct access to a private terrace. The staff are...

My husband and I stayed at the Athens Gate back in 2011 for a night during our honeymoon. We had a little over a day between our return to the US after vacationing in Corfu. The hotel was beautiful, great location, well appointed, comfortable, and we found the rooftop restaurant very good. Would 100% stay here again if we ever...

Such a great hotel, modern, and the location couldn't have been better. We went just after renovations and it was a very comfortable clean room. Just down the street from the flea market AND the Acropolis. One of the best things is the rooftop rest where you can see the Acropolis from it and at night it is so beautiful....

We booked two superior double rooms the middle of October. Our rooms were located at the front of the hotel with a fantastic view of the Temple of Zeus. We arrived about 8:00 pm but had no problem with check in. Everyone at the front desk spoke excellent English and welcomed us to Athens. The view from our room at...

My room had bed bugs that were so visible that I was killing them with my bare hands. When I told staff, they moved me to a different room which thankfully was bed bug free. They also gave me a free meal and free dry cleaning. However, it would've been in their best interest to offer those free compensations rather...

Close to Acropolis and the Plaka market. This is a clean well serviced hotel. The service is excellent. John is very attentive and friendly doorman. He was excellent in letting us know about the overcharging by Taxi drivers.

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.
