We chose this hotel for a three-day post-cruise stay after reading the excellent reviews on TripAdvisor and can totally confirm all the praise heaped on this hotel. The management and staff are friendly and very helpful (Katherina in the breakfast room is a true gem!). Our room 403 (in the back with no view) was totally quiet and extremely comfortable... More

Everything about this hotel was perfect. We stayed here before going to the islands and on our way back. The location in the fashionable Kolonaki, the service level at the reception, staff friendliness and willingness to assist throughout our stay, made our stay an exceptionally pleasant one. They also arranged a taxi to and from Rafina port which made our... More

We started our honeymoon trip in Athens and were so glad to have come across the Periscope Hotel in the upscale neighbourhood of Kolonaki. A mere 10-minute walk to the metro station (Evangelismos) and about a 20min walk to the bustling Syntagma Square, this hotel is located very strategically but also provides the peace and quiet you need to unwind...

Delightful personel and very nice hotel. Location is not ideal if interested in walking to Plaka, but the hotel is really nice. The air conditioning is superb and the room was very large with supberb bathroom. Breakfast was excellent (and included).

My husband and I stayed at the Periscope hotel for two nights during our honeymoon trip to Greece. We had a nice size room, with a king bed that faced the street. The hotel is centrally located to museums and restaurants and the night life. The free breakfast was very nice - buffet style side dishes and made to order... More

I was really surprised to find this gem among all the Athens hotels on Expedia as I didn't know about it at all and I come from Athens originally. I was looking to stay close to Syntagma Square and that's how I found it. It is really close too (10-15min walk). I was impressed by the photos on Expedia as... More

Well-located, modern boutique hotel in Kolonaki. I was able to easily walk downtown for dinners and to the Acropolis and other museums for sightseeing. Nice modern rooms are a good value. The bathrooms could use a refresh (dingy tile in my room), but other than that modern decor and furnishings. (Also a bit of form over functionality in the rooms... More

Very nice staff and comfortable room. Located in a nice neighborhood and convenient to get around from hotel. Nice touch are the panoramic city wallpaper prints that remind you how sprawling the city is. Bonus.....Amazing water pressure in shower!

Good boutique hotel in a quite part of Kolonaki. Rooms are well appointed, although the operating of the shower is a little too futuristic to our liking - managed to operate, and eventually have a shower with the right balance of water and heat. Not sure why you just don't keep things simple and easy to use. The panaromic view... More

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

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
