Athens: Hotel Hera

4* (A Class) / Athens centre - Acropolis area

list bulletDescription of the accommodation

The entrance to the hotel

Many of our older clients are familiar with the Hera, a small (38 rooms), family run hotel just a short walk to the Acropolis of Athens and the Plaka. Prior to the Olympics in 2004 the hotel underwent a long, thorough and very expensive renovation that won it a category upgrade (4* / A’ class).

The hotel now features very elegant and fully equipped rooms, featuring private bathroom with bathtub (some are not full size) and shower hose, magnifying mirror, hairdryer, tissue box, bathrobes, slippers, and toiletries; satellite and pay TV, music, A/C (self regulated), mini bar, coffee and tea making facilities, laptop size safe deposit box, direct dial phone with data port and Internet access.
On each floor of the first four floors there are four rooms facing the street and have a slightly bigger balcony, and four are looking at the back and do not have a balcony. The front rooms on the 4th floor have Acropolis view. All rooms on the 5th floor (6 rooms) are facing the street and are superior rooms (designated as suites) as they are larger in size, with a small sitting area (couch and coffee table), a larger balcony and a very nice view to the Acropolis. The rooms are rather small so we do not recommend them for triple occupancy unless the 3rd person is a young child (fold-out bed is provided). A child can also be accommodated in the suites (the couch turns into a bed). There are also connecting rooms for families of 4.

General facilities of the Hera hotel include: 24-hour reception; small bar in the lobby; a very pleasant breakfast room (rich American buffet breakfast is served) under a glass dome that also operates as a restaurant; a beautiful roof garden restaurant & bar with splendid view of the Acropolis; meeting room with business facilities. Other services: laundry service (on request), room service.

I was disappointed with the Hotel Hera. The first night there the ceiling in the bathroom started leaking. Although the staff brought towels to put down, you couldn't use the bathroom without getting wet. The breakfast was okay but there was not much to choose from. If I had an option to return, I would not stay at this hotel.

Staff was very friendly, rooms very comfortable, breakfast buffet very nice-a little bit of everything! It was just 2 blocks from the Acropolis, 1 block form metro or bus stops. Easy walk to many things, safe area.
