As anyone who is interested in modern design knows the Campana brothers are modern semi gods; making their first hotel ever in Athens was something that i have been waiting for long (also it took them more than 3 years to complete it). The result is breathtaking. Campanas set a workshop in Athens which under their supervision used all possible elements from the old, iconic, 60-70s hotel, and turn this into a design maverick. The art installation of the lobby and restaurant, the reclaimed chairs, the Edra (designed by Campana again) chairs, sofas and mirrors (super expensive), the evil eye charms on the walls of my room, the gold fragmented wash basin stands, the bamboo flooring create a literally NEW design vocabulary. If i had to add something i would also say that the value for money is unique, breakfast is amazing and service is cleverly informal while super attentive. My only criticism, if i had to think one, is that they could also come up with a cheaper lunch preset menu.....
