Certificate of Excellence
Periscope is the YES! Hotels antidote to the ordinary city hotel. Modern minimalism and award-winning architectural design create a Young, Energetic and Seductive urban haven, right at the heart of Kolonaki, the oldest and most exclusive neighborhood in Athens. The original mundane building, dating from the 1950s, is now a tribute to clean lines and uncluttered spaces, balancing ergonomic solutions with urban aesthetics. Form, color, and texture create a feeling of order and tranquility. A modern ‘home’ for the long weekend or for the short break, Periscope is a firm favorite among business and leisure travelers. Situated in the coveted Haritos Street, number 22, Periscope is just a 10 minutes’ walk from Syntagma square and a 5 minutes’ walk from Evangelismos Metro station. It is also a 30 minutes’ car drive both from Athens International Airport and the port of Piraeus.

Neighborhood
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.

First the reasons why 5 star. Great boutique hotel in an energetic area of the city. Good restaurants, shopping and bar vibe nearby. Close to transportation to main sights. BUT It is in a noisy area. Fortunately there are shutters on the windows that do a great job of blocking

Dear Randy R, thank you so much for sharing your review from your recent stay at Periscope! Our main aim is always to improve ourselves through the constructive reviews of our valuable guests. Regarding the air-conditioning, unfortunately is this time of period that the weather is not cold or hot, so we are in the middle situation of trying to satisfy all needs. You might be aware as a global traveler, that every nation has its differences in temperature. For the unfortunate incident of a guest that was confused and nock your door early morning, we understand that it create a tense to you and we apologize for the inconvenience. Thank you once again for your review and hope to have the pleasure of seeing you again soon at Periscope Hotel and have the chance to give you the great hotel experience that so many of our guests have grown so fond of. Kind Regards, Georgia Koutsompeli Residence Manager Kind regards Irini Antoniou Guest Relations
