I'm visiting Athens frequently for business and meeting friends and I stayed in several hotels including big names 5* hotels. I changed hotels until I found New hotel. In my perspective, the hotel is the best hotel in Athens in all aspects. The location of the hotel, close to Syntagma Square and the Plaka, is excellent for going in /... More

We ABSOLUTELY LOVED our stay at New Hotel in Athens. The staff's hospitality is unmatched! They were all so kind, quick to give great recommendations, and always there when we needed something. The breakfast every morning was excellent. They always provided breakfast boxes when we had to leave early. The chocolates in the lobby were certainly a highlight. Very unique,... More

Very nice place to stay. Central place inside Plaka quarter and vers close to Acropolis. Great service and personal. Il you have à car, you'll have to use the opposite parking lot, go there before checking in. You'll save time^^

Visited in May 2014. I don't care about beautiful titles like "desighner" or "boutique" hotel, but this place is really unusual, high-comfortable and pleasant to stay, close to centre and actually a bit more than 4* to my opinion. Best wishes, good memories!

The hotel is ideally situated, walking distance to Acropolis, located in Plaka. The service is very good and the rooms are modern, unique and well designed. The breakfast is awesome. We also loved the table of cold water and chocolates at reception.

Design hotels often translate into dodgy lodging, cheap flourishes and inept service. But the NEW Hotel by the Campana Brothers does not mask a sub-par experience with a vague "design" label. Great quality, intelligent details, and good service make this property a standout. A delicious breakfast, glam rooftop, and a central location are bonuses.

We stayed at the New Hotel twice during a trip to Greece and the Aegean Islands. It was restyled a few years ago and is absolutely unique. The designers had cut up the old wooden furniture and used it to cover the walls - sounds odd but it worked. Both bedrooms had displays on the walls - cut-outs of cartoon... More

Loved the room which was well designed. Each has a theme. My husband and I stayed in the postcard room. Loved the cut out sink and table and balcony. Roof restaurant while pricey has a view of the acropolis. It's in plaka neighborhood where restaurants and little shops abound. Walking distance to acropolis and new museum which was perfect for...

It is in a great location within walking distance to all the highlights. However I didn't think it was very good value. Rooms are very small and we barely had place to put our luggages to get our things. Staff are not particularly friendly or unfriendly. There was a problem with our room's door which you need to unlock before... More

The New Hotel has a perfect location. I would like to point it out the kindly staff and the well-designed rooms. The quality of wifi was good, which is not so frequent in Greece. We also enjoyed the nice breakfast. A bit expensive, but definitely suggested.
