In Athens for a two day business trip this hotel was just what we needed to relax and recharge. The service was excellent, as was the breakfast.The home made chocolate and glass of cool water that we were offered at reception was just what we needed after a long day of meetings. Must-try the limoncello bread at breakfast. I will... More

WE only stayed for 2 days since this began our Greek Adventure. The hotel is centrally located and walking distance to everything. We defintiely recommend the hotel for the start of your Greek Adventures. The only disappoint, was the room service let a bit to be desired. We ventured out and made out just fine, since we could walk to... More

Location is great, close to attractions and shopping. Very helpful front desk staff. Great Breakfast...I mean, DELISH!!! Only problem was that the hotel wifi went down, DURING A PILOT STRIKE on Lufthansa. So, without Wifi, we had to use the hotel phone and call the US to speak with an agent. At the exorbitant hotel phone rates, we spent $600... More

Great location of the hotel, walking distance to Syntagma Sq., Plaka & The Acropolis, delicious breakfast, very nice interiors & cosy room with blackouts to sleep till late if you care to, made it the best choice for staying during our short visit to Athens. It is reachable by metro & bus from the airport, which is much more convenient... More

I tend to stay at the 'standard' chain hotels like Marriott and Starwood as they are usually a pretty safe bet and you know what you'll get (and yes, I love me the bonus points). The service at the New Hotel was probably the best I've had at any hotel recently; after a long trip, the check-in process was fantastic... More

This was just what we wanted for our break in Athens. The welcome on arrival was second to none. Our room was not ready on arrival but we were offered coffees in the lounge to help pass the 15 minutes. The room is well appointed, with a novel decor depicting photos from 'old' Athens and ours was overlooking the Russian... More

Excellent service, excellent room in an excellent location in the hart of Athens. The design is fantastic and everything is in order. I strongly suggest to taste a coffee with profiteroles at the lobby on the top!

I stayed here with my fiance in September. It started off very well - from the lobby to the room, to the restaurant - loved the designs, everything seemed interesting, clean and new (no pun intended). Service: After we unpacked, I was about to take a nap a few hours after checking in when I heard a knock, I get... More

We stayed here for 2 nights for our honeymoon. Was pleasantly surprised when the hotel made special arrangements to give us free upgrade to a suite upon our check in. The room was lovely! Love the quirkiness of the design and look and feel. My hubby and I had a pleasant stay here. The location is conveniently located - walking... More

This wonderful little boutique gem is hidden away in central Athens. Very close to the main square and in the heart of the city, it is close to everything but at the same time quiet and relaxed. Lots of quirky details to catch the eye, from the wooden pillars to the fun and funky decor - it is a delightful... More
