I have stayed at several hotels in Athens, ranging in price as well as varying in location, and I can honestly say there has never been one which stood out in my mind in that I had to absolutely return to; but after staying at the Athens Diamond Plus this summer, I will never stay at any other hotel in Athens again. I do not know how my friend and I managed to stumble upon this hotel, but I am glad we did, as it truly proved to be a hidden gem of Athens!
The 'Athens Diamond Plus' is the sister hotel to the 'Athens Diamond Hotel' which is just across the street. Located near the corner of Voulis and Metropoleos streets in Plaka, within walking distance of the shopping district of Ermou, as well as the changing of the guards at Syntagma Square, this stylish boutique hotel is quite impressive!
The eclectic decor seems to be inspired by the ancient Greek gods, as everything is white with gold accents, and it appears as though every detail has been carefully thought out from floor to ceiling. Our room on the 3rd and top floor of the boutique hotel was surprisingly quite spacious, as it included a bedroom, den (including a mini-fridge with complimentary water), washroom, and also a terrace which was almost as big as the suite itself (which is rare to find in a overpopulated city such as Athens).
Not only was the hotel impeccable and stunning to look at, I would also have to say that it was the most comfortable hotel stay I have ever had, as the bed was fitted with a high quality coco-mat mattress! The towels and robes were also coco-mat products, which just added the perfect touch to what was truly a luxurious stay. For the reasonable price of the room, you almost feel as though this hotel is just too good to be true!
The service provided by the staff is also 'top-notch' - definitely five star treatment! Unlike many hotels in Greece, there is a full-service 24-hour front desk/concierge available, and we found that there was always someone available to provide assistance with a smile. Yianni at the front desk was especially personable and made us feel at home. Additionally, the hotel provides complimentary buffet breakfast across the street at the 'Athens Diamond Hotel' each morning.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a high quality centrally-located hotel, with excellent service in Athens. Athens Diamond Plus, you are truly a hidden gem, and you have now set the bar quite high for my future visits to Athens!
