We'll be the first to admit that four-star Hotel Hera isn't an orthodox Cheapo pick. A crisp, elegant hotel in Makrygianni, just a short walk from the Acropolis, Hera's least expensive double room sits just above our Athens price range.

That acknowledged, we consider Hera splurge-worthy for its relative affordability, its great location, and its inviting high-end atmosphere. Hotels like Hera are so often accompanied by wallet-destroying rates; happily, Hera's doubles are priced between €130 and €150.

Did we say high-end atmosphere? Yes, we did. Hera's elegant entryway is dripping in marble and dark wood paneling. Rooms are dressed in neutral tones, with cushioned headboards, swank overstuffed chairs that invite a swivel, fluffy pillows, and quilted duvets. The overall feel is luxurious though never hedonistic. Some rooms veer ever so slightly into overdone territory, though most are on the more restrained, modern side.

Business people are an obvious demographic at the Hera, which has a large conference room on offer, plus free parking facilities and free Wi-Fi. However, couples and families on vacation comprise a sizeable share of the Hera's guests as well. The location is ideal (about a seven minute walk to the entrance of the Acropolis) and yet insulated from busy Syngrou Avenue, just one block away.

Breakfast is included.
