When I started researching hotels I realized I wanted to be in the Plaka area and close to the Acropolis. This hotel has both of those things! The surrounding area of Plaka is beautiful with lots of little streets and shops, music, and art to...More
The rooms are nice but very small. Great views from rooms and especially the rooftop restaurant. Unfortunately we had a lot of noise from chairs in the restaurant over our room. Be careful of that.

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.
