Nice boutique hotel, excellent service, clean, very modern and trendy. Kolonky area is the best if you prefer to be away from the too toursty area, but still want to enjoy excellent restaurants, cafés and little boutiques. The hotel is small and charming. The restaurant is not very interesting for diner, but the breakfast is outstanding with smoked salmon, and... More

A small modernistic boutique hotel with good service, quiet, comfortable rooms and a surprisingly good restaurant. You can sit outside on a padded bench outside the restaurant to eat or have a drink, but frankly, there’s nothing to see on this little used side street. However, you’re only a couple of blocks away from Kolonaki Square if you want to... More

This is a very nice, modern, clean hotel with helpful staff in an upscale and relatively quiet area of the city. The bathroom was huge and the shower was hot with great water pressure! The breakfast provided a nice selection of items and was included in the price. Walkable distance to the Metro stop and lots of nice restaurants and... More

Modern boutique hotel in Kolonaki, near many different shops and restaurants and a quick cab ride to the Acropolis and plaka. The hotel in general, along with my room, was very clean. The bed was very comfortable and the HVAC system was very efficient. I travelled in early September and the days were quite warm but was kept very cool... More

I had never been to Athens before and stayed at Periscope because of a recommendation from a friend. I was there on business and when traveling for work, I usually avoid the small boutique hotels because of their lack of amenities. I enjoyed the stay at Periscope. The front desk staff were friendly and extremely accommodating (gave great restaurant recommendations,... More

Periscope is a small, professionally managed hotel in the upscale Kolonaki neighborhood. The hotel is on a quiet and small street, yet there are plenty of restaurants, bars, and shops within only a minute's walk. The subway is a few minutes away. The hotel is understated and minimalist with wooden floors and dark grey walls. Rooms are on the small... More

Located in upmarket suburb surrounded by boutiques and fine cafes and restaurants. Great place to escape to from the grime and touting of the Acroplis area. Rooms are spotless with some noise from across the road construction at the moment from 0800 to 1400. Delicious and healthy breakfast menu. Try a taste of the Mastica liqueur at the front desk.

I have stayed many times at the sister hotel, New Hotel near Syntagma. I thought Periscope would be of a similar standard... I was wrong. I visit 2-3 times per year for business and decided to try this one instead because it was a little cheaper. Really not worth the saving. The good points: Location, pleasant upmarket area with less... More

We stayed in the hotel for 2 nights, hotel staff is very helpful, room is comfortable, and we love the fresh delicious breakfast! Location is good, plenty of nice restaurants just around the corner, close to metro station, and easy walk to all attractions. We plan to go back again next year.

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
