We stayed at this hotel a couple of times when visiting Athens. The location is fantastic in a quiet back street in the centre of Athens. The rooms are modern and clean (though quite dark for my taste). The bed was fantastic.The bathrooms could have been more modern - our room had a bath rather than a shower. The restaurant... More

Great location in Kolonaki (reminded me of the West Village in NYC) - great restaurants, expensive shops and a hot cocktail bar scene. Very accessible via hop on/hop off bus and metro. Did a hike to the top of Lycabettus Hill for a stunning sunset. Safe area. Room is on the small side but super clean and it's not like... More

My wife and I stayed at the Periscope 2 nights. We liked the hotel. Yes the room was small with not a lot of surfaces to put things, but it was clean and comfortable. The location is excellent, in Kotonaki. Lots of good restaurants nearby, and we were able to walk to the archaeological museum, about 30 minutes, and to... More

This hotel is situated just outside the city center, in a quiet neighbourhood. Really remarkable: great shower, breakfast with a lot of fruit. I also ate at the restaurant one evening but that wasn't too good.

Our tour agent, TrueGreece, booked this hotel for our last night in Athens when our previous hotel in Syntagma Square was unavailable. They know what they're doing. The hotel struck us as an small, upscale business hotel. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was nice but certainly not the best of the 4 hotels we stayed at on... More

A lot of reviews already, I just really wanted to add that it is in an amazing location. It is within walking distance of Lycabettus Hill (which you should either walk up or take the cable car, beautiful view from it and you can sit in a cafe) within one of the most in neighbourhoods of Athens, just one metro...

Lovely boutique hotel in great location. Short walk to the cable-car for sunset views and within easy reach of all the major attractions. The penthouse suite is well worth the upgrade - huge room with private jacuzzi and roof terrace.

We were greeted at the front desk by Panos, and he set the tone for a wonderful stay. Each of his suggestions, whether for a restaurant or attraction, was thoughtful and great. Trust him--he knows his town! We loved the location, and for someone visiting Athens, I couldn't think of a better place. The area is "neighborhoody," it just happens... More

Small hotel at superb location in Athens. Room service somewhat amateur, but lovely. No parking, if you come with car. Restaurant: Standard menu, slow service, everything needs reminding and care. Intendedly industrial, modern design.

Great small Hotel in the middle of Athens but without the noise of the shopping sector area. The Hotel is in a great neiborhood with great small restaurants and boutiques, but only 10 minutes walk to Sintagmatcs square and 15 to the buzzing area of town. Staff very friendly and helpfull make the Periscope a great choice in Athens.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Periscope is a minimal city hotel with an impressive urban architecture, located on a quiet street, minutes away from Kolonaki square. The hotel draws its name from its electric periscope, a fantastic way to visit Athens from a distance! In the Lounge Bar, guests can find a remote control for a periscope located on the roof of the hotel. With a 360 degree range, the periscope's views, which guests select, are shown real time on a big plasma TV. ... more   less
