My husband and I stayed at this hotel on our honeymoon, and I cannot say enough good things about it! I highly recommend Hera Hotel!!

Our room overlooked the Acropolis (as did the Peacock Restaurant and Bar on the top level), their customer service was incredible, and it was clean. I felt like a princess staying at this boutique hotel! It was ideal for a honeymoon.

Also, the food at the Peacock Restaurant and Bar was incredible, some of the best food we had during our entire stay in Athens - (esp the Olive Paste and the Sundried Tomato Paste that comes with the bread . . . . mmmmm, yum!)

Their front desk staff was professional and courteous and so friendly and SO KIND! I actually got quite sick one night during our stay, and one of the men working the front desk did everything in his power to ensure I was OK, giving my husband all sorts of information about local medical clinics and hospitals, and even gave me a croissant to help settle my upset stomach!!

The location is ideal . . . walking distance from the Metro (subway) and lots of shops and cafes and bakeries within walking distance. Also, some great sight-seeing items are within walking distance: Acropolis, Temple of Zeus, Olympic Stadium and more!!

If I ever go back to Athens, I hope I have the good fortune of being able to stay at Hera Hotel once again! LOVELY place!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the Acropolis!!

This is a nice, clean, if somewhat 'dark' hotel in the heart of Athens. The staff here were very helpful and pleasant and the front desk staff double as a Concierge, helping us to book tickets for local attractions and tour services. The Peacock rooftop restaurant which was open air, was a great place to watch the sun set. There is a clear view of the Parthenon on The Acropolis which is illuminated after the sun sets. The drink menu was creative and the meals were delicious. Reservations are recommended though it was not very busy on the days we visited. Whereas most Greeks take their meals late at night, if you go earlier for dinner (6-8 PM) you may have the restaurant to yourself. The hotel rooms are 'european' which means a little small and a bit cramped but the bed was roomy and comfortable. We had our own very small balcony, just barely room for couple chairs and small table - which we took advantage of a couple times for an evening bottle of wine and some cheese and crackers. There are a great many restaurants less than 2 minute walk from the hotel. Perhaps the primary reason for selecting this hotel - access to the Acropolis and the New Acropolis Museum is within a 5 minute walk of the hotel. The breakfast buffet at the hotel was delicious.

Room Tip: Higher floors can yield better views.

We had a lovely stay at Hera. Our check in was fantastic. The staff were very accommodating and we booked day trips right off the bat. The room was comfortable with a lovely balcony which overlooked the Acropolis. We had similarly great service when we received a packed breakfast because we had an early check out the day we left. The hotel is right over the road from the Acropolis Museum and many restaurants and cafés. The Tiki Bar next door spotted some cool live music worth checking out. A fun stay.

Booked here with other friends. 5 rooms altogether. Brilliant hotel. Clean and tidy. Staff went out their way to accommodate breakfast at 5 in the morning along with complimentary bottles of water, bananas and a snack in the rooms. Great views from the Peacock Restaurant. Lovely views from there to enjoy your meal and a lovely glass of wine while watching the sunset. Only a short walk from the Acropolis Museum and many restaurants as well as a short walk to the Flea Market where you can get some lovely souvenirs.

The Hera Hotel was a wonderful place to stay in Athens. It is centrally located and walking distance to so many sites, the temple of Zeus, the Acropolis Museum, the Acropolis, the Plaka, the center of town, shopping, the Parliament building and the changing of the guard.

The hotel staff was very helpful in giving directions and recommendations of restaurants (there are so many in the area). Our room had a view of the Acropolis. It was a nice size and clean. The bathrooms were up to date and large. The internet was fast and worked with no issues. We included breakfast with our reservation. The dining room was pleasant and bright. They had different breads and rolls, fruit, fruit juices, cereals, yogurt, etc. They had hot trays with sautéed vegetables, sausage, prepared eggs. They would make omelets, if you wanted one. The staff was friendly and very helpful.

I am very sorry that I did not take any photos of my room, bathroom and dining room.

I would stay at the Hera again on a return visit to Athens.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that looks at the Acropolis.
