The Periscope Hotel is very central and located in walking distance to Kolonaki Square, Parliament, Syntagma Square and Plaka. Rooms are well designed and very modern. The staff is very helpful and service oriented. This hotel is small so make sure you book well in advance.

Very clean and modern boutique hotel in upmarket Kolonaki. Rather noisy at night if you leave the doors open! Staff very helpful. Lovely Greek breakfast. Downside is the lack of space in the bathroom to put out your toiletries! Great position . If you can,take the penthouse which has an amazing view of Athens.

We really enjoyed this hotel! It is however removed quite a bit from anything. PIE restaurant located in the hotel was fantastic! Wherever you want to go required a taxi ride. Next time we'd stay closer to where the action is.

Staying in Kolonaki / Lykavittos

Neighborhood Profile
Kolonaki / Lykavittos
By far the ritziest neighborhood in town, Kolonaki is home to most of the chic boutiques and designer label stores. Here, the wealthy say no to austerity by dressing in their finest and spending hours in the trendy cafés around Kolonaki Square, sipping the most expensive coffee in Europe. The area also contains a couple of notable museums and cultural institutions, which add to the air of nobility. The leafy upper reaches of Kolonaki transition into Lykavittos Hill, the highest point in central Athens. Climb the paths through its wooded slopes to the tiny chapel at the top, from where you are rewarded with stunning views across the Acropolis to the sea and even the mountains of the Peloponnese on a clear day. The wooden amphitheater up here hosts regular concerts during the summer.
