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

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
