Fantastic location, close to everything. The rooms are amazing and unique and the beds very comfortable. They are clean and spacious and they go the extra mile to make it special. The reception staff were very helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay here again.

WOW, What a modern, quirky hotel.
If you want traditional don't go, but if you like something "left of centre" this is it !
We had a junior suite with a triangular bed room, bamboo timber bathroom, a chair that resembled a Shitzu dog, and a upstairs bar/lounge overlooking the Acropolis. Great for sunset drinks/photo.
Bit pricey but it had it all so enjoy ;-)

Room Tip: If you want quite, request a back room. Suite had separate bedroom, both lounge and bedroom had in...

We stayed in New Hotel for 3 nights and it was amazing! The location is very very good! You are very close to the metro station which goes you anywhere and you are about 5 min walk from the center of the town. Super friendly staff and very very nice rooms. If i ever come back in Athens i will totally stay here again!

Just booked out after 4 nights at The New Hotel , this is a really nice hotel with comfortable beds, quiet rooms and a great location near Syntagmatos Square.
From here you can walk to most of the tourist attractions including the Acropolis.
There are many restaurants in the area, the main shopping street, the markets etc.
One cafe we really enjoyed was Avacado, a vegan restuarant just around the corner in Nikis Street,if your not a vegetarian don't be put off this place is excellent , best coffee.
The hotel, it's a little expensive, but throw in the free breakfast which is excellent and the service and funky set up its a nice place to stay.
We ate in Taste restuarant in the hotel one night food was excellent, also visit the 7 th floor bar for a great view , you can also eat here.
if you want a good hotel this is the one.

Room Tip: Higher floors have views

This is my fourth time to Athens and this is the only hotel I will ever now come back to!!! Service is warm and friendly - breakfast is of a high quality (eggs are cooked fresh and cappuccinos made by a barrista trained by the champion of barristas were great - esp as I'm from Melbourne - coffee capital of Australia), rooms have lovely quirky features, the rooftop has a great view of the city and hotel location close to Syngtama, Ermou Street, Plaka and Acropolis is top notch. There's a number of great restaurants in the area. Turndown service included chocolates every night - what more could one ask for!!!!
The only down side is the traffic noise and our bathroom door doubled as the toilet door - but this is well outweighed by the positives!!!

Room Tip: We booked a suite for the extra room.

Great location as you can walk to almost about every major tourist destination (acropolis hill, square, etc) we felt very safe within the neighborhood and to top it all, service is impeccable. We love the hotel's unique design and it is spotless clean. We could not ask for more. One of the best in terms of service in our whole 2 weeks trip in europe.

The New Hotel is a great little hotel located centrally in Athens. The staff are extremely friendly and provide top quality assistance. The breakfast is great, definitely the best and freshest selection of food we had during our trip to Europe. Rooms are very comfortable and a decent size. Location is great - just around the corner (5min walk) from Syntagma square where you can get the bus or metro (bus from the airport stops here too). Approx a 15 walk to Plaka and the Acropolis. The roof top bar is a must - with a great view of the Acropolis. GReat location, staff and facilities - I would definitely stay again!
