New hotel is a nice boutique hotel with delicated design details, passionate staff, and great location to welcome the guests to Athens. Its walking distance to plaka shopping area and the Acropolis. I think i will still choose to stay here next time i visit Athens.

We spent one night here on our return to Athens .The New Hotel was modern, with interesting design and immaculate rooms. We would definitely stay here if we were in Athens for a few days. It is right in the heart of the city, with the Acropolis and the Plaka district within easy walking distance. The staff were very professional... More

We spent only one night at the New Hotel, but really loved it. It is a small hotel, but very modern with very interesting and trendy furnishings. Our room was not very big, but they made good use of the space. It had only a small restaurant but we found the food quite good. Easy walking to nearby restaurants and... More

Fantastic location, close to everything/ Metro-station nearby. Nice breakfast. Excellent service. Friendly and courteous staff. Very helpful. The hotel was immaculate. Very modern design. Agree with London S, the sound isolation not so great but overall the hotel is excellent and strongly recommended.

Great lovely staff, large superior rooms, comfortable beds, modern, clean, interesting design. But - don't go there if you're planning on sleeping in. The rooms aren't well isolated and so you will hear all sorts of engines on and off, and be woken up by cleaning staff doing rooms in the morning, including the very pleasant sound of vacuum cleaner...

My husband and I stayed here in July 2014. It was a great stay and the staff was helpful. There was no breakfast included. The room was pretty small but it was ok since we didn't spend too much time in there and were out and about sightseeing for most of our stay. It's more of a modern hotel. One... More

Very modern design, nice details throughout, breakfast was lovely. Excellent room service. Central location too. The wi-fi reception was very inconsistent. Rooms had unique design. Depending on the room location you might have a view of the Acropolis.

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
