“A stunning little boutique gem hidden away in central Athens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

This wonderful little boutique gem is hidden away in central Athens. Very close to the main square and in the heart of the city, it is close to everything but at the same time quiet and relaxed. Lots of quirky details to catch the eye, from the wooden pillars to the fun and funky decor - it is a delightful hotel, that looks to please. Everything is understated from the service to the rooms but this only adds to the charm.

Breakfast is wonderful, with an array of local produce and wonderful pastries - you will be tempted back for more. The roof top bar, deliveries a great view of the Athens skyline and very pleasant for a pre-dinner drink, to watch the sun go down. With so many good places to eat, I didn't actually eat dinner at the hotel but from the look of the menu it will be something I do next time I visit.

Overall a great experience and with everything within easy walking distance - a real benefit for both business and pleasure.

Friendly service upon arrival, room was clean and modern. Breakfast was more than adequate. Location is probably the hotels biggest asset, about 200 meters from constitution square, hence within walking distance to attractions like the Acropolis, Temple of Zeus, Plaka with it's restaurants and shopping, to name a few. Price in comparison to other hotels in the vicinity of similar class was very reasonable. Would stay there again.

Room Tip: Higher floors at the rear of the hotel

Best service I have ever encountered at an hotel. Staff are friendly, helpful and efficient, especially in the reception. Location is amazing within walking distance of all main attractions. Hotel design is really quirky but modern,comfortable and clean. The breakfast buffet was aesthetic and the food and service very good.

This hotel was amazing. We (2 adults and 2 kids) stayed here in the beginning and end of our trip and could not have asked for a better experience. The staff was both helpful and friendly; the location was perfect; and the breakfast was amazing. I would highly recommend it.

Room Tip: If possible, higher rooms (of course) have less street noise.

Whilst it had been the (twice as expensive) Santorini hotel that I was most looking forward to in our twin centre break, Athen's New Hotel really stole the show - would wholehearedly recommend.

Location is super - central Athens, walking distance to all the main sights including the Acropolis, Temple of Zeus, Olympic stadium etc; generally a very safe feeling neighbourhood; really couldn't ask for a better location. Staff very helpful in providing maps/routes/recommendations and helping with bookings to make the surrounds even easier to navigate.

Staff were highly competent, engaged, enthusiastic and friendly without being overbearing - nothing was too much hassle. Exceptional customer service - they really made our stay (and I hope management pass on our genuine thanks if they read this, as the staff really are their greatest asset).

The hotel design is interesting and unique; rooms fairly compact (as you'd expect with a city centre hotel) but well appointed and designed. Ours had fabulous views of the Acropolis which was a lovely surprise!

Superb breakfast selection - a delicious and varied buffet, including a fantastic array of baked goods from the on-site bakery/patisserie. We didn't treat ourselves to the brunchtime patisseries (which looked like it had been plucked from the Champs-Elysees!) as I have a nut allergy, but it looked truly delicious. We ate in the restaurant once - mild enough in mid-October to sit out on the terrace - and again enjoyed excellent service, very good Greek wine, and a very tasty meal.

Overall this was a wonderful surprise which far surpassed our experience at the subsequent Santorini boutique hotel; we left feeling disappointed we'd only spent three nights. I would recommend New Hotel wholeheartedly and, whilst I'm not usually a fan of staying in the hotel place twice (there's so many places to explore!), I think I'd find it hard to justify booking anywhere else when we return to Athens.

Stayed in a junior suite and loved the room. Great design and very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was okay but nothing special and service was a little slow on some of the mornings. Overall, definitely recommend and would stay again.

The new hotel is located within walking distance to every great site in Athens. It is super mod and cute, and It is worth walking around the hotel to see all the modern art. The roof top bar has a great view of the Acropolis.
