This hotel exceeded all our expectations! It was recommended to us by Athenians but I didn't expect how good it was! It was extremely clean and the standard of the rooms was very high. The decor was hip and cool and very modern and he bed and the pillows were divine! The service was equally as good and the staff... More

Stayed here twice during a recent trip to Greece. The hotel is small and minimalist in style. For our first visit we stayed in a standard room ( no suites were available). The room was small but functional and spotlessly clean. The second visit we stayed in a junior suite with a balcony; I highly recommend paying the extra for... More

My wife and I stayed here while in Athens on our honeymoon in May '15. We loved it! It is very clean, the staff is wonderful, the breakfast was delicious, and it is within walking distance of everything you could want to do in Athens. It is on a quiet street, but close to lots of conveniences that you may... More

My husband and I finished a long three week vacation all over Europe in Athens. We loved Periscope Hotel! It was wonderful. We had a little trouble finding it late at night when we arrived (we should have just taken a cab!), but we found it with no trouble the rest of our stay. Our room was perfect, nothing extravagant,... More

I had a great stay at Periscope Hotel. I stayed in a junior suite with a terrace facing the street. Both the room and terrace were spacious. Periscope is located in Kolonaki which is a very upscale neighborhood which sits on a hill. The sidewalk cafes and restaurants sit on a small slope with flowers covering the path - it's... More

The Periscope is a very nice hotel in a great section of Athens. It is walking distance to most of the key sightseeing attractions, the neighborhood is safe and right for walking and strolling. Breakfast is excellent. The rooms are small but nicely appointed. The rooms lack sufficient electrical outlets to plug in various paraphernalia such as computers, iPads, and... More

Very nice quiet room, no view but great bed, nice bathroom. Very friendly staff which tries to help you with every request. Good location in a nice quarter with man bars and restaurants. If you don't stay a lot of time in your room during the day, it is perfect.

In the heart of Athens, a bit noisy but with big and clean rooms. The Network connection was not too bad, and the staff was nice. The bet thing, from my point of view, is the restaurant: the menu at the lunch is amazing and the buffet at breakfast is quite good for starting the day. The staff at restaurant... More

It is very nicely located in the posh area of Athens . Close to excellent museums ( Benaki and others ) , with many restaurants and bars where Athenians go , you live Athens out of the traditional and crowded touristic areas. When you go back to your hotel from Plaka you feel you are back home and u like... More

Staying in Kolonaki / Lykavittos

Neighborhood Profile
Kolonaki / Lykavittos
By far the ritziest neighborhood in town, Kolonaki is home to most of the chic boutiques and designer label stores. Here, the wealthy say no to austerity by dressing in their finest and spending hours in the trendy cafés around Kolonaki Square, sipping the most expensive coffee in Europe. The area also contains a couple of notable museums and cultural institutions, which add to the air of nobility. The leafy upper reaches of Kolonaki transition into Lykavittos Hill, the highest point in central Athens. Climb the paths through its wooded slopes to the tiny chapel at the top, from where you are rewarded with stunning views across the Acropolis to the sea and even the mountains of the Peloponnese on a clear day. The wooden amphitheater up here hosts regular concerts during the summer.
