Great location, easy to get to from airport by cab. Amazing view, Parthenon and other well known monuments are about a 15 minute walk. Shops all around. Very clean with free wifi on rooftop bar. Staff is friendly and helpful.

The only bad thing to say about this hotel is the old elevator. I stayed in one of the ˜Temple of Zeus view room˜, and it was perfect. The breakfast with an astonishing Parthenon view just made my mornings. It`s a perfect location. Walking distance from every touristic place in Athens.

Really nice, perfect located hotel. Polite staff, very good service. Nice breakfast, although repeating itself. The only insufficient thing was lack of spa, fitness and pool facilities. The view from the restaurant on the roof is great, probably the best in Athens.

I can't say enough about this Hotel. The location is perfect. Very close to Metro, Plaka and anything else you could need. The staff were very helpful and the rooms were very clean and modern. The view from the rooftop bar was amazing. Thank you to Stamatylou (spelling?) at the bar for his recommendation of Mastika. Great aperitif and wonderful...

I loved this hotel! Last year, I turned 30 and gifted myself a trip to Greece! The location is definitely what made me give this hotel a high rating. Like what most reviewers said, it is across from the Temple of Zeus and you can also view the Acropolis located behind it. Everything is walking distance especially the restaurants and...

We stayed here 3 nights (split between the beginning and end of our Greece trip) and found the hotel very good mainly for the following reasons: 1. Very good view - we were upgraded to a room with a view, which meant we woke up every morning to the sun rising right behind the temple of Zeus. Was quite a...

Nice hotel, cosy room, bright regular lights, large veranda, facing the Temple of Zeus. A very pleasant stay, good value for money and good location. The only things are the room does not come with kettle and feast is the same everyday, a little too dull for a 7 days trip.

This hotel has a convenient location. It is exactly opposite the Temple of Zeus and Hadrian's Arch and is walking distance to major sites/attractions in the city centre including the Plaka district where there a lot of restaurants and shops. It is also a short taxi ride from the Syntagma Metro Station (paid 4E). Serves a good breakfast at the...

The hotel is nice, clean and modern. Wifi works great, but the best thing about this hotel is the view. Depending on which side of the hotel your room is, you either have a fantastic view of the Temple of Zeus or a view of the Acropolis, if you are on the upper floors. Was met with small snack upon...

Just back in London after five wonderful nights at Athens Gate - a great, reasonably priced hotel in a perfect location. Our room was on the 4th floor overlooking the Temple of Zeus - the other side has Acropolis views but only on the higher floors. A drawback might be the busy main road but we had no problem sleeping....

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.
