Located on Filellinon Street, next to Constitution Square (Syntagma Square), this contemporary design hotel, is perfectly positioned for the sights of Athens, including the ruins of Plaka, the Acropolis and its museum, the stylish boutique shopping district of Kolonaki, and the bustling business zone. Situated in the former Olympic Palace Hotel, New Hotel encompasses the heritage of its past by using recycled parts of the old hotel and reinterpreted local materials to create a complete work of art, where outstanding interiors, unusual custom-made furniture and handmade fixtures make guests feel that they live and breathe in a major art installation. Offering an entirely NEW approach this 79-room and suites establishment, is one of the city’s finest examples of modernist architecture and the first ever hotel project of award designer duo, Fernando and Humberto Campana.

As a Marriott Titanium member I travel quite frequently and the hotel staff was one of the most exceptional I’ve encountered. They were friendly, knowledgeable, and very helpful. They arranged for a Covid test for my return to the US and went out of their way to find the best way to ship purchased items. Additionally the lounge staff was wonderful with providing directions and a soda for my room so that I didn’t have to walk alone at night. I highly recommend!!

Perfect location in Syntagma Square was convenient to many sites in Athens and for grabbing lunch/dinner in addition to shopping. The staff were always accommodating. There is also a medical facility within a 10-minute walk providing COVID testing when needed.

Perfectly located by the Plaka and with a beautiful rooftop library bar that you can relax in, have a drink and see both the Acropolis and lycabbettos. Staff incredibly warm and friendly and rooms were smart, clean. It was a great spot for the start of the holiday. One small note: The Bells. The church next door does give you an early start on a Sunday...8.30am. But that added to the charm and you can always doze off afterwards as they don’t last long.

The New Hotel is for sure one of the most stylish and carefully designed Hotels I have ever seen. Every chair, lamp and accessory is handpicked and reflects the overall Design of the House. If you love modern yet timeless interior design this is the perfect place for you. The Penthouse is my favorite Room in Athens and allows you spectacular views of the Akropolis from your terrace and the bedroom. Celebrating a special occasion or simply life on this terrace is a one of a kind experience. In addition the Hotel has a lovely restaurant at the top floor, which serves an amazing breakfast while overlooking the stunning city of Athens. The service is also top notch! The Greek are famous for their hospitality and this place serves as a great example. Last but not least the location of the house is excellent if you want to explore Athens without a car as everything is really close by. The Akropolis and it's museum can be reached within just a few minutes. I love this place & will be back for sure!
