We chose this hotel on our return to Athens following a lovely week in Santorini. It is a nice hotel centally located near acropolis museum and Plaka. We liked the room although we did not like the view of our room. Some other rooms have better view. The service is good and staff friendly. Overall a good experience.

Very pretty and modern hotel. Lovely rooms. Clean spacious slate tile bathroom. Rooms have nice wood floors and contemporary decor. Most rooms have some sort of view.

This hotel is located near everything we wanted to see in the two days we had in Athens: Acropolis; Acropolis Museum; Plaka; and great restaurants (we wanted to see more up close but were hampered by rain and jet lag). Recommend taking a tour bus for acclimation and overview. We went as a family and had two rooms (306 and...

We chose this hotel on our return to Athens following a cruise. The room was clean and comfortable and breakfast very good. We had a superior room with Acropolis view. The room was quiet being away from the main road. The breakfast room has excellent views of the Temple of Zeus which is across the main road from the hotel....

We stayed here with our two young sons ages 9&10. It is convenient to the Acropolis, the museum, restaurants and shopping. You can go high dollar(euro) for eating or duck into a simple cafe along the walkways. Without having to take a taxi or any other transport you can see much of the heart of the city from this location....

We stayed here for six days prior to our cruise. We booked a standard room, but when we arrived we were sent to a room that was not yet cleaned, so we left the hotel to wait for it to be cleaned. When we returned to the hotel a couple hours later, we were told because of our inconvenience, we...

We chose to stay here again after our last memorable stay in 2012. We were upgraded to a larger room with a balcony that has a stunning Acropolis view as we celebrated our Wedding Anniversary here. We were given a free bottle of wine as complementary for our special occasion (thanks to the hotel management). The room is impeccable and...

My wife/I stayed here during our honeymoon. The rooftop views during dinner were incredible and the staff were very friendly/helpful. They don't provide free wi-fi which was odd but they did have 2 computers for general use in the main lobby. The location was perfect and we were able to walk to almost everything we needed!

Stayed here on our way to and from the Greek Islands while in Athens and couldn't have asked for a better central location to see all that Athens has to offer and easy metro access.

This hotel is in a great location. It's only about 100 meters from the akropoli metro station the hotel overlooks the temple of Zeus. Our room (402) overlooked the temple.

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.
