I very much enjoyed staying in this hotel. The design was contemporary and well thought out, and the location was very convenient and close to the major tourist areas of interest. There is a very nice rooftop bar as well which offers great views of the Acropolis.

We loved our stay at the New Hotel - what a great location and unique hotel!! From the moment we walked in staff were very friendly and warm. The room was lovely, a fresh approach to hotel design, great to see something new. Everything was very clean and comfortable, we would definitely return if visiting Athens again.

My family stayed here recently and had a great experience. The room was a little smaller than I had hoped for myself, my wife and our 13 yo son but it wasn't unreasonable. The hotel is clean and the staff is very helpful. Although I can see where the single elevator for the entire place may become an issue, we... More

While there are certainly less expensive hotels in Athens (a generally inexpensive city to stay in), I felt like I could get more bang for my buck there, especially considering I spent $270 for a tiny room in a Courtyard Inn in Manhattan last month! Anyhow, the New Hotel is one of the nicest hotels I've stayed at in a... More

A great midsize hotel in a good location. The hotel restaurants serve great food and breakfast. Clean and well kept. Very friendly and helpful staff. We had been staying at the Hilton for years but felt we needed a change. The New hotel feels much fresher and cooler. Hip but without silly posing.

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.
