Fascinating and lovely place for a vacation in Athens. The hotel has comfortable rooms with ample views, are modern, and tastefully-designed. Service was good. Certainly a place I could recommend for a short stay.

We stayed here New Year's Eve. Had tickets to a wonderful ASO concert at the Hudgens Center for the Arts and then went to the private New Year's Eve party at the Hotel Indigo. The rooms are nice - with a modern twist. No nasty carpet - wood floors for a refreshing change. The bathroom was a little small, but... More

We did a lengthy road trip around the US and this was overall the best hotel we stayed in for facilities and value for money. The room was big, spacious and bright. The service from the staff top notch and the restaurant excellent. We were very very impressed.

A large group of us traveled to this hotel for a work conference. From the time of check-in, the hospitality was top notch. Not only were the employees at the desk and restaurant/bar very friendly and helpful, but the owners of the hotel were frequently present and very accommodating to the needs of our group.

We LOVED our stay at the Indigo last weekend. The property itself is quite unique and cutting edge. There is a story behind everything from the energy efficiencies (LEED Gold Certified building) to the benches by the elevators to the picture frames on the walls. All the hotel artwork is by a local artist. There's even a small art gallery... More

Our room was nothing short of perfect, excellent climate control, comfortable bedding (the bed did seem short), and extreme quiet. We saw online that the hotel was pet friendly.

My family of four enjoyed two adjoining rooms at Hotel Indigo for one night. Repurposed hard wood floors, ceramic mugs for in room coffee, recycling bins in each room and lighting controlled by your door key are just a few examples of this hotel's green business model. The location is ideal for a quick walk to downtown Athens and north... More
