This boutique hotel in down town Athens was a gray find! The room was small, but very nice! We had a great stay! Service was excellent, the view from the rooftop restaurant was incredible and you could even see the Acropolis! I would surely stay again!!

I originally booked the Intercontinental in Athens, but after reading some reviews I decided to take switch to this hotel. The staff is very professional and courteous. I usually give individual recognition, but honestly every staff member I've encountered these past 2 days has been great. The room is beautifully decorated and contains all the necessities. By European standards I... More

This hotel was perfect for our 1 night in Athens. It comes across as new and modern - especially the rooms (although a little small). The location is perfect for a quick stay in Athens, being very close to the Parliament Building/ the centre of town (5 minute walk max) and a 5 minute drive to the Acropolis.

Have stayed at New Hotel several times and loved each experience more than the last. The location is perfect and is within close walking distance to Plaka, the Acropolis, and many other attractions. The rooms vary quite a bit, so be sure to specify if you would like a certain theme - the evil eyes on the wall are my... More

2 minutes walk from Syntagma. There's nothing more to add about location. The hall and the rooms were completely renewed recently, and the interior designer used furniture and lighting of the old hotel to decorated the new one, with a very refined and stylish effect. A dinner or just a cocktail on the roof garden is mandatory. It features a... More

We loved the New Hotel. The home made chocolates, roof top restaurant and bar and scrumptious breakfast. The gym was also more than adequate. The hotel has an enviable location in the centre of Athens. Staff were very friendly, decorations quirky but felt the digital commentary at breakfast was strange and out of keeping. Would highly recommend New Hotel and... More

New Hotel went above and beyond in terms of service, and the room was very nice as well. We had some issues regarding a medical emergency and the staff was very responsive in helping us. Highly recommended.

A different hotel experience. Rooms have differing styles and furniture. Not your standard marriott or hilton. Staff was friendly, helpful and efficient. Breakfast is included in some packages and well worth it. Broad selection of hot and cold items. Only complaint was restaurant on top floor. Very expensive and average food. Much better to eat at any of the surrounding... More

We have stayed in a lot of European hotels and this may be the nicest one we've stayed in. From the fresh water and chocolate handed to us upon arrival to the location, and the staff, and the beds, everything was wonderful. The hotel is an easy walk to the Plaka neighborhood and the Acropolis and Syntagma Sqaure. We arrived... More

Staying in Syntagma

Neighborhood Profile
Syntagma
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
