I got a room which was not renovated and oh yes, it really wasnt renovated! I was supposed to stay two nights but had to leave after the first night. It was a terrible experience. The location is great! But you need to make sure you get a renovated room.

Well the hotel seems to be nice, from what i heard it went under renovation. My room was clean and really nice. The location is excellent since you can visit all the main streets around the center on foot but even use the metro to move around further away. Metro station is a good 150 meters away. I never had...

I had a wonderful stay at Phidias, my room was bright, super clean and cozy. The shower is great and the heating worked well. Breakfast was delicious, with many options to choose and fresh squeezed orange juice (the girls of the cafe are fantastic, they will always make sure you have everything you want and a bit more). My room...

I stayed with my family in this hotel for 4 nights! We were impressed with the entire staff. Right at check-in they gave us 2 maps of Athens and told us where to go and how to get there. It was incredible! The rooms are also super super clean and the view - omg, we had a balcony with perfect...

This is not a luxury hotel but a luxurious pied d'archaeologie. The rooms, though small, are clean and chic with marvelous views of the acropolis. The food is delightful with fresh squeezed orange juice, espresso, and baklava available for breakfast. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The area has great restaurants and a carnival street atmosphere without the creepiness. Located...

Lovely hotel in a perfect location on the quieter part of the pedestrian street with lots of restaurants and cafes. So you can expect to hear a bit of a chatter through the windows at day time and in the evening but nothing too loud was going on even on the weekend night. Just a short walk away from all...

We were very impressed with the friendliness of the staff, their location, and the bountious breakfast. We would highly recommend this hotel! We had a view of the Acropolis and we were next to the Agora and the Temple of Hephaestus. Good meals were nearby too.

The hotel staff were friendly and accommodating; they helped us several times with recommendations around town and with transportation. We really enjoyed the fresh breakfast buffet and coffee. Very convenient location, just a 10-15 minute walk to the Acropolis, with nice views. The downside was that our rooms were not renovated; the carpet and bed coverings were very old and...

Stayed 2 nights in room on lower floor without windows. Room was clean, but very small, adequate for only 1 person. Was somewhat noisy at night with staff moving around and other guests using lower level restrooms. Location to street market and sights was very convenient with great views from the outside, esp. at night.

Chose the place on location and price but was pleasantly surprised. Our room on the second floor was nicely renovated, the staff and coffee shop delightful but it's the location, opposite a park on a pedestrian mall and within walking distance of the Acropolis that make this place stand out value. Have read some poor reviews of the place but...

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.
