Fantastic and helpful staff -- clean rooms and comfortable bed. Right in the city centre walking distance to the Acropolis and surrounding areas. Beautiful heritage building. Truly a comfortable place hope to continue staying in for many years on business here in Athens. Recommend? YES.

The Hera Hotel is a short walk from the Acropolis Museum, The Acropolis and very close to Plaka - it really is the ideal location to stay in Athens. The Hotel is a family run concern and everyone is so kind and friendly, especially to me, a single woman traveling alone. I look forward to ruturning there again, and thank...

An excellent hotel with excellent location, just a few meters from the Acropolis and the Museum. The service was prompt and answered my needs. Mr. Dimitris at the reception was very warm in his welcome and helpful, We loved his hospitality. The roof top restaurant has good food but limited variety, it does come with a good view of the...

We chose the Hera initially from Tripadvisor and looked at other websites and reviews and couldn't find a better hotel in a better location. Our faith was well placed and we enjoyed our weeks stay. Our room overlooked the Parthenon and we were just a few minutes walk from all major activities. The room was excellent, the service good and...

This hotel has a fantastic location and the suite on floor 5 has a view of the acropolis that is worth every penny. Breakfast is ok, but their are masses of great restaurants and takeaway options. Our favourite was a pasta takeaway we're dinner for 3 was 14 euros. Hotel wifi is great but they limit the bathplugs! This was...

Very good hotel in central Athens. Knowledgeable and efficient receptionists. Very clean and comfortable rooms with decent breakfast. Few negatives - one is the slow response of the only lift in the reception area. Wasted so much time here on every occasion we used it - a bit frustrating. A very minor comment re. the breakfast - the toaster is...

Hotel Hera was located within walking distance of the Parthenon museum and many restaurants located on a nice walking street. The breakfast setup . The staff at the front desk were nice and helpful. Certainly recommend.

It's location is about 200m from museum and you can get hop on hop off bus also. Take a easy stroll through plakka District with restaurants and small shops all the way to main square in about 20 minutes. The hotel has good heating and the rooms are comfortable.

We stayed 1 night upon arrival to Athens and then a second night after visiting Naxos and Santorini with our toddler. First room was a little small but nice. The crib barely fit in the room. There is no deadbolt which made it a little precarious for little escape artists. Then, the second night they upgraded our room to a...

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.
