Stayed here for 3 nights at the end of our Turkey/Greece trip. Walked in without reservations. Rooms were very nice, service was excellent. We discovered upon arrival that my husband had just been pick-pocketed on the metro and lost his passport. The staff was very helpful during our 3 day ordeal to get a replacement. Breakfasts are ample. Location of... More

My fiancé and I travel a lot and we're pretty tough critics and I have to say this hotel does everything right. We LOVED IT. Firstly, the hotel itself is like a work of art--it's so well-decorated it was lovely just to wander around. The welcome water and sweets were a nice touch and we liked that they were situated...

We stayed in this hotel for one night on the way to Mykonos and Santorini. Location is faultless being about 200m from the bustling Plaka and Syntegma Square and within close proximity of the Acropolis and all the historic sites. Like many boutique hotels, the New Hotel seem to attract the young trendy crowd looking for something different. We didn't... More

Just stayed one night, but really nicely decorated big adjoining rooms with electric block-out blinds. Walking distance to the Parthenon/Acropolis and just round the corner from the Kidathineon street of restaurants and shops.

We stayed two nights at the new hotel on either side of a trip around the Peloponnese. We had one night in a junior suite and one night in a superior plus room. Both rooms were lovely and clean and we'll appointed with a quirky modern touch. The junior suite had a nice little living area with a couch and... More

We stayed here to start out our Greek honeymoon, and would highly recommend it to other travelers. It was close enough for two active adults to walk everywhere. I loved the chocolates at turndown. They have very nice smelling luxe toiletries too, not no-name hotel stuff. Cocktails on the roof were pricey but tasty.

My husband and I loved this hotel and we would definitely stay here again. It was within walking distance to Syntagma Square, shopping/restaurant area of Plaka, the Acropolis, and the high end designer stores at Kolonaki. There were also restaurants and bars around the near vicinity as well. Great starting point, especially with Syntagma Square which conveniently has a metro... More

We staying in a junior suite, which was perfect for 2 adults + child, with a L shaped room with a door in between, so almost like having 2 rooms. Breakfast was fantastic, offering everything, would struggle to find better. Locations was great, could walk almost everywhere. My mum staying in a deluxe room, which was a really good size,... More

This hotel is about a 1/2 mile from the acropolis. We could see it from our window. All the desk staff are helpful and friendly. Ditto for the rest of the staff. Turn down service was a treat as were the little chocolates and fresh fruit in the lobby. Breakfast was excellent and was included in our package. This is... More
