It’s all location, location, location at the Hera Hotel, situated at the foot of the infamous Acropolis. The Parthenon, the Erechtheion and the Athena Nike are all within easy reach, and the hotel has sweeping views of the sights from the suites to the rooftop restaurant. While its locale couldn’t be more Greek, those looking for marble columns and statues might be disappointed: The interiors are classic, contemporary and soothing. Think curved iron columns, a mahogany-clad reception area and elaborate floor designs.
Bed and Bath
Each of the 38 guestrooms is decorated in soft tones of sand, beige and gray, with comfortable linens and fluffy throw pillows. The attention to detail is meticulous. White orchids dress up spacious sitting areas, and in suites, verandas offer views of the Acropolis Park and the Acropolis Museum. Bathrooms are clad in marble and come with a bathtub or a separate shower.
The Peacock restaurant serves simple Greek fare using only natural and organic ingredients to create such dishes as chicken stuffed with gruyère, and sundried tomatoes with traditional Greek noodles. The bar has an excellent selection of wines and spirits, and the veranda at the Peacock is ideal year-round for an aperitif as you gaze at the Acropolis and the Parthenon.
How to Get There
First, the location is great, easy walking distance to Plaka and many of the big Athens attractions. The rooms are a decent size for an Athens hotel; the bathroom is actually roomy compared to most. Especially the shower - I'm a weightlifter and usually barely fit into a Greek shower stall but this one was nice. It's the little things...
Breakfast has a nice selection and the staff here is friendly and welcoming.
We stayed at the Hera Hotel for 2 nights. The location cannot be beat! Super close to the entrance to the Acropolis, Plaka, and also within walking distance to other major sites. Lots of places to eat surrounding the hotel. We stayed in a room with a view of the Parthenon. Yes, the room was small, but nice size bathroom and plenty of storage for luggage and clothing. We enjoyed the breakfast in the morning in the hotel. My only complaint was the air conditioning. It never got cold in the room despite turning it way down. Overall nice stay, friendly staff, and excellent location.
My wife and I recently stayed at this lovely boutique hotel and we loved it!
The front desk people were very warm, friendly and helpful . The room was very clean and the bathroom was spacious. The hotel offered morning breakfast and I have to say it was very delicious with a wide assortment of dishes. Nicely laid out next to the lobby.
Also the view of the acropolis was spectacular from our balcony. Would definitely return!
Terrific location. Easy walking distance from Acropolis and Plaka area. Lots of good restaurants and gelato in walking distance. Very nice large rooms. Very quiet. People at front desk nice and helpful. Good value. We would definitely recommend staying at Hera Hotel when you visit Athens.
Totally recommend this hotel. Just check the reviews. The Rooftop restaurant is better than the reviews! Incredible. Only way I can describe it is...”An Adventure worth taking “. It is so good. The rooms are clean, well maintained. The staff are efficient and helpful. Beautiful place. But it’s the LOCATION people! Always remember, LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. This is the perfect location!
Let me know if this is “helpful “. I will try to answer questions.
