I would say this is the best Hotel in Athens! It is clean, cozy, and beautifully designed! I would highly recommend staying here! The service staff were friendly and helpful! I can not get over how beautiful the rooms are! The beds are very comfortable and cozy! Everything in downtown Athens is within walking distance!

Probably the nicest hotel in the city. You can walk almost everywhere from here. The rooms are funky and very European. It's expensive, but worth it. They upgraded us to a suite. Room 431 is fantastic!

After years of weekly travel for work, I have stayed in many nice hotels but, I have to say, I may be a Hotel Indigo convert after my recent stay at the Hotel Indigo in Athens, GA! It was gorgeous, luxurious, and yet also a fantastic price! I still can't get over it, actually. The room had hardwood floors, wood... More

This is a belated review---we stayed here back in December (a few days before Xmas, so the hotel was almost empty). The hotel is located an easy two block walk from the lively restaurant and bar/club scene of downtown Athens. It is supposedly one of the "greenest" hotels in the US, with everything oriented to energy efficiency, etc. The "green"... More

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner in downtown Athens and a great concert at the 40 Watt Club, both within very easy walking distance of Hotel Indigo. The LEED certification of this hotel was a big selling point. The room was really big, the bed super comfortable, and the decor modern yet somehow woodsy. It was clean, very... More

I adored this hotel, as did my husband, and we would definitely stay here again upon returning to Athens. The hotel is really beautiful, clean, and overall just a nice stay. One complaint was that upon arriving, we pulled into the lot, where we later found out there were spots for loading/unloading/checkin in that people were just parking in. We... More

The nicest of Athens' three best hotels, The Hotel Indigo is the best place to stay in Athens. The hotel is comfortable and located mere blocks from downtown (a five minute walk). The staff is friendly, and the rooms are tastefully designed. I will stay here on future trips to Athens.

There are so many wonderful things to say about this hotel. First off all the hotel representatives that I worked with were extremely helpful. My groups room keys were ready upon arrival, so no one had to wait to get into their rooms. Bus parking was free and on-site! (Major bonus). The hotel has an art gallery, cafe, bar and... More

Hotel Indigo Athens is a great place to stay and we highly recommend it. We've visited the hotel twice now and enjoyed both our visits. The hotel has a very unique and modern design with a lovely outside courtyard. The Rialto club has a very comfortable and contemporary environment and the rooms are very well done.
