The New Hotel is quite nice and an easy walk to the Plaka and the sites in Athens. The rooms are modern, interesting and comfortable and clean (wood floors and surfaces). The balconies are pointless (at least on the lower floors) because the busy street outside makes them unusable. However, the rooms are sound-proofed so that you really do not notice the traffic - unless you have the doors open. The service was quite good (although we thought that we had arranged a ride from the airport, which did not show up -- but this was no big deal because the taxis at the airport are convenient). Some of the functional art is not all that functional -- the chairs in the room are not really chairs that you can actually use, but I guess the thought there is that no one really uses the chairs in a hotel room. All in all, we enjoyed are stay there and would recommend it.
