This is a modern boutique hotel located in a very nice and quiet area in Athens. There are several cool restaurants and bars around. We never took the metro and decided to take a taxi back in front of the parliament and it was only 3.50 euros. Walking down was not more than 15'. It is also very close to... More

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.

Very comfortable clean room, in a quiet upscale neighbourhood, but walking distance to main sites like Syntagma, Plaka, Mt Lycabettus, etc. Nice comfy bed. I like it that there's a door to the shower booth, a rare feature in this country based on experience. Nice small selection of buffet breakfast. Friendly staff. Nice restaurants and cafes around the area.

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.
