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.

We stayed here for three nights and found the location perfect for accessing transportation and walking distance to historical places. For us, it was worth the extra cost of the room to pay for a view of the Temple of Olympian Zeus. If you do book one of the rooms facing the

At first staff is very friendly. Hotel's location is very closer to the historical area of Athens, but it's too difficult to reach the hotel when your vehicle is opposite side of the street due to the traffic regulation. Room's floors are laminated surface, so it's advantage

"The views of the Temple of Zeus are beautiful. They, do, however, involve a bit of street noise..."
"Opt for a High Level room facing either the acropolis or the temple of Olympian Zeus"
"Rooms on the higher floors facing Zeus Temple are nice with a balcony"
"Rooms on the front side of the building have views, but there is street noise. Rooms on the back side are quieter, but no views."
"Definitely splurge on the Acropolis view or the Temple of Zeus view rooms... it may actually be quieter on the Acropolis side as well"
US$102 - US$336 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
