As many others have written, the location is very nice for wandering around Kolonaki by foot but also quick if meeting people other places in central Athens.
The room was comfortable and decor pleasant, as expected.
As of December 2013, some construction happening in building directly across street (which I would guess will continue for some months) but at least when I was there the noise wasn't too bad.
Two things about the breakfast were memorable: very nice smoked salmon, and probably about the best poached eggs I have ever had.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Periscope is the YES! Hotels antidote to the ordinary city hotel. Modern minimalism and award-winning architectural design create a Young, Energetic and Seductive urban haven, right at the heart of Kolonaki, the oldest and most exclusive neighborhood in Athens. The original mundane building, dating from the 1950s, is now a tribute to clean lines and uncluttered spaces, balancing ergonomic solutions with urban aesthetics. Form, color, and texture create a feeling of order and tranquility. A modern ‘home’ for the long weekend or for the short break, Periscope is a firm favorite among business and leisure travelers. Situated in the coveted Haritos Street, number 22, Periscope is just a 10 minutes’ walk from Syntagma square and a 5 minutes’ walk from Evangelismos Metro station. It is also a 30 minutes’ car drive both from Athens International Airport and the port of Piraeus. ... more less
