I stayed at the penthouse suite as a birthiday present to my girlfriend. The room inside is very nice decorated, spacious, with very comfortable bed. The bathroom has only shower and not bathtub. The outside needs a renovation and the view is nothing special only other rooftops to see. Also there is constant noise from the air units outside, if... More

We stayed in Periscope Hotel in April, we only got around to reviewing it. This hotel EXCEEDED my expectations. The rooms were on the small side, but clean, well maintained and the bed is one of the most comfortable beds that I've ever slept in! The neighbourhood is an upscale neighbourhood, and feels very safe, even at night. The breakfast... More

I have stayed in this small hotel only on one-night stays. It is really near the city centre in a quit alley in an otherwise busy neighbourhood. The rooms are of very good size, modern and clean. Room amenities offered were of good quality also. The best factor however was the staff's politeness and weelingness to help in every way... More

We stayed at Periscope over four nights during two separate stays while we were in Greece. A small boutique hotel located in the area of Kolonaki which was central also close to subway. Plenty of shopping and good dining within easy walking distance, including groceries. The rooms were clean and compact with large sliding windows that opened. The bathroom was... More

Have just returned from a wonderful week (in Penthouse) and cannot fault anything about the hotel whatsoever. Check-in was simple, hotel was clean, and location is superb for bars, cafes and restaurants. It is one of the more exclusive areas of Athens so prices are a little bit more than tourist fodder but the quality of the food in the... More

We arrived at the Periscope after 20 hours of flying for our honeymoon, and it couldn't have been a better landing spot. Staff was incredibly accommodating and the room was great. Enough space for us to relax and lay down our suitcases. Modern decor but not artsy or pretentious. It's also in the high end neighborhood of Athens, so there... More

There is late-night street noise in Kolonaki, as in most of Athens, but it usually quietens down by a reasonable hour. The beds are clean and comfy, and I always woke feeling refreshed. The breakfast is simple and healthy, and sets you up well for the day. The staff are polite and helpful. The hotel is close to some of... More

We stayed in hotel Periscope for two nights, late September 2015. The hotel is located in the Kolonaki neighbourhood, which is certainly a very trendy and cosy area, with many restaurants, cafés and shops. This area is located on the foot of the Likavitou hill, from which you have a fantastic view over Athens. Another plus is the hotel’s short... More

Great location! Lots of good restaurants & shops nearby.. It's in the upscale neighborhood of Athens but close enough to do your sight seeing.. Athens is small & getting around is easy.. The hotel has a feel of a hip boutique hotel.. Rooms were well appointed & comfy... Bathrooms were clean & spacious.. Breakfast was great! Love it & would... 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.
