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.

I was absolutely thrilled with my visit to the New Hotel. Everything exceeded expectations and was just the type of hotel I love, with 5* service and welcoming staff. The hotel has a very interesting style and overall very unique design. The Studio room was very stylish, well appointed and great art, spotlessly clean, comfortable bed and quality linens, and excellent bath products. The balcony have a wonderful view of the moutains, and from my bathroom suite, a great view of the Acropolis. The hotel itself is in a perfect location, mintues away from the Plaka, Acropolis, Stymaga Sq, Olympic stadium and just about anywhere you want to walk. I never had to take a taxi trip the whole time. Also high marks to the staff. They noted my exact room preferences I had made in advance and ensured I got what I requested. Also very helpful in directions, dinner suggestionns etc. with smiles. The hotel has also taken strict precautions for covid and everything was cleaned and staff wore masks, I highly recommend the New Hotel in Athens. There are lots of choices but you will be very pleased just as I was. Book with confidence. I will return again.

YES HOTELS GROUP: NEW HOTEL  On our last day we had the opportunity to visit another Hotel from Yes Hotels Group called: New Hotel. The best part was the rooftop terrace with the view of the Acropolis. We had an amazing dinner during sunset time with an incredible view.  Like all Hotels of the YES Hotels Group “New Hotel” has its own concept. For example, they didn´t get rid of all the old stuff of the former Hotel in this building, but they renewed it and used it to highlight the interior.  It was really amazing to see the effort they put into designing and concepting every single hotel. Once you are in Athens you have to check it out. I totally recommend staying in one of their hotels once you are in Athens. The people working there are super friendly, every space is clean and cozy, that makes you feel like home.    THANK YOU, Yes Hotels Group, for making our stay so magical! Dreaming about the day I will come back.  With love, Cristy

Visited the rooftop restaurant as way recommended on TripAdvisor We were not disappointed. Drinks and food fabulous, and the views of Acropolis Hills were stunning. Service and evening in general was s o good that we decided to throw caution to the wind and book a night's stay too. Staff were extremely accommodating and even upgraded our room and gave us a gift for our 10th anniversary. Great stay in an excellent location. Thank you team!

I loved my two stays at the New Hotel at the beginning and end of my Greece holiday in the midst of corona. The team in the reception - Vangelis and Olga, the bar team and Sophia in the spa provided both professional and friendly cheerful service and made me feel welcome - I hardly wanted to leave the hotel. Both the roof top bar and the range of massage treatments are highly recommended! The location is also great to explore Athens by foot, you can easily walk to Acropolis from here.

This hotel was great. Staff greeted us very warmly and our room was very nice with a small balcony. The bed was super comfortable, the windows were soundproof and the blackout blinds work perfectly. We really enjoyed the breakfast with great coffee. The rooftop bar has a great design, actually every part of the hotel does. We enjoyed a bottle of rosé sparkling wine on the rooftop bar, which was a good start with some amazing views. Athens is very easy to discover on foot from the hotel and all of the major sights can be reached within half an hour. If you’re there to see the city, it’s your perfect base.
