Reviewed yesterday NEWvia mobile

Location is perfect and breakfast is among the best i have ever had - so many options and everything was high quality. The only area for improvement is the gluten free offer (too poor for a hotel Like that). Service is attemptive as you would expect from a five-star hotel. But what makes it unique is the creativity of Campana's...

New Hotel Athens is a visually stunning boutique hotel near the Plaka, the Acropolis and the amazing Acropolis Museum. The staff were friendly and accommodating, the room (we had a Junior Suite) comfortable and pleasing . The top floor bar and restaurant served very good food with stunning views of Athens and the Parthenon.

Really love this niche boutique hotel. Location is very near to Syntagma Square. Bed and finishes are of high quality. My favourite is the breakfast at the hotel. The pistachio croissant is to die for. Service is impeccable.

This was our Athens base for a few nights either side of a trip to Crete. the location is handy and central, virtually avoiding the need for taxi or public transport. The rooms are on the small side and the whole place has a very quirky design which may or may not appeal. Beds are comfortable and the showers work...

New hotel is in a great location and the bed was superb. The room had a brand new rowenta hair dryer with a concentrator nozzle. A good hair dryer is so appreciated when traveling.

We stayed a weekend in May to see the sights and the hotel is really well placed from that perspective. Our studio room was furnished with a king size bed and a comfortable settee, small balcony which we didn't use and plenty of space. The WC/ shower arrangment is a bit unusual and the wash Basin is in the main...

First as so often written by others, this hotel offers the tourist/traveler a great location in which to explore the historic heart of Athens. Just about everyplace you would want to visit is within a 30 minute walk. And for venturing further afield, taxis are inexpensive and easily available. Much has also been written about the design component of this...

I had heard great things about the top-floor New Hotel Art Lounge restaurant. I visited it yesterday and was very disappointed. The environment was very nice, with great views towards Lycabettus Hill and Syntagma Square, but the service was bad and the food, well, awful. I had two fish dishes, one with scallops and one with sole fish, and in...

Staying in Syntagma

Neighborhood Profile
Syntagma
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
