We expected hard beds but thrilled to find very comfy beds at the philippos. The quiet location is excellent. 5 minutes to the Acropolis south entrance (preferred), the Acropolis museum and the Akropli metro station and a lovely 10 - 15 minute walk to the less touristy thissios area. And there is a wonderful bakery, small market and wine/coffee bar...

Modern and clean hotel with all the necessary facilities. Staff are welcoming and helpful. Hot items served for breakfast could be improved and increased. Very close to the Acropolis and other tourist attractions. Highly recommended and would stay here again!

Stayed here with 4 children and 3 adults for 4 nights. We had 2 rooms on one of the upper floors and the views were awesome! There was plenty of room and everyone had a bed. The mattress I had was a little dipped in the middle but still was somewhat comfortable. Rooms were very clean with plenty of room....

Great location and super friendly staff. This is not an American hotel in a foreign country so if this is important to you, you may be disappointed. However, if you are a regular traveler, you will find wonderful staff, a great location and a good value. Next time I am in Athens, I shall return to this hotel.

Spent long week-end at a Conference nearby. Very impressed with this quiet yet central location. It was early December but Athens still busy. The Hotel was spotless, room small but comfortable for one person. The staff were quietly efficient, breakfast plentiful. A bargain at a budget price!

I honestly was very surprised (in a good way) about this hotel. Lots of other reviews complained about small outdated rooms. However, I found these rooms to be slightly larger than most rooms in London hotels. The rooms were also exceptionally clean with nice simple decor. They even had a tub and small balcony. Additionally breakfast was also very good,...

Excellent mid-range option for exploring Athens!

Very clean and with tasteful modern decor, friendly & helpful service. Nice buffet breakfast (but breakfast...

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.
