We stayed at the New Hotel for two nights prior to our embarking on our Seabourn Cruise. This extraordinary hotel was an absolute complement to the six star cruise line. The staff was exceptionally friendly and greeted us by name whenever we came back from site seeing. The restaurant downstairs provided us with a wonderful breakfast in the morning and cocktails in the evening before going to up to the roof top lounge/restaurant for a nighttime view of the city. The room was contemporary and well thought out in its layout, unlike any room we've stayed in before. We found it to be most comfortable. Above all location, location, location: it's within walking distance of all the famous sites. When our next cruise begins in Athens, we will again begin our six star vacation at the New Hotel.
