“Great for a 4 star hotel. Funky, friendly and New!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in November. Great weather for this time of year at 22 degrees c made the whole experience lovely. Our room was lovely, modern, clean and comfortable. We had a little view of the acropolis which was nice but not necessary as we spent little time in our room. Staff were friendly and helpful. Food is great for lunch and dinner although could be better being that it's a buffet there's not much to choose from in the fruit section and so on. And we were told that if you have more than one coffee for breakfast we would be charged which I thought was a little cheeky.
I had a really lovely massage in the very small spa but very relaxing with a complimentary discount on arrival. Amazing!
On the whole I thought the hotel was pretty prefect for our city break with so much going in the area from ancient ruins to shopping and hundreds of coffee shops filled with people at the weekend. Street dancers and flee markets. What a great place. And if you can get to a bouzoukia a Greek night out usually with a famous Greek singer and entertainment, it's a great way to spend the evening the way the Greeks do. Be warned night life doesn't start before 12-1:00am.
My husband and I were very much impressed with Athens and our very funky friendly hotel.

Stayed for 5 nights at the hotel and everything was fantastic. Great location in the city center, great room services, great room deco and facilities, great breakfast....Though my cost was covered by a third party, I'd say the hotel is worth the pricing!

Room Tip: Higher floors have a brilliant view of the whole city and Acropolis!

The New Hotel is in a nearly ideal location if you are in Athens for a few days to see the historic sites. We walked the two blocks from the train station the night we arrived, and at the time the neighborhood looked a little sketchy. By daylight, we saw that most of Athens looks a little sketchy but the neighborhood is safe and easy walk to vibrant sections with many restaurants to choose from.

Room Tip: The is a new hotel. I doubt they have any bad rooms.

We spent 5 nights at the New Hotel and could not have been happier! The service was way beyond our expectations, Food was excellent and the view from the Roof Top bar of the city and Acropolis at night were beautiful!

We really aced our hotel selections this holiday. This was another 5 star hotel in our view – the room was awesome and the service excellent.

Pros
- The location is unbelievable. It is a 2 minute walk to Plaka, 3 minutes to the station and the metro museum (yes there is a museum in the metro station) and Parliament, 5 minutes to Hadrian’s Arch and the monument for Zeus and about 10 minutes to the Acropolis and associated museum
- The hotel’s interior is exceptionally designed. The rooms are perfect with large comfortable beds and pillows
- It was wonderful coming back to the hotel in the evening after a hard day’s sightseeing to find the bed turned down and chocolates on our pillows
- Breakfast was perfect as they bake bread and pastries on site. So whilst there are the usual deli meats and cheeses, hot meats and eggs (cooked to order) – the breads and pastries are superb!
- Going to the rooftop lounge for a drink was an brilliant way to finish the day and the view is incredible
- All of the staff are warm and helpful
- Swipe entry cards for the lift and rooms are a great idea and extremely convenient

Cons
None. This is an outstanding hotel that I can’t recommend highly enough.

Room Tip: We had a superior room on the second top floor facing the street. It was quiet, large, comfortable...

I stayed at the hotel for two nights and service was phenomenal. I had a room with a balcony facing the street but it was fairly quiet. It was spacious and toiletries were all good. A free bottled water in the room. I used the fitness centre once and they have fairly good selection of cardio machines and weights. It is a boutique hotel, and I really like the interior design. My room stay per night came with breakfast and was sumptuous, cappuccino was included and eggs made to order. There is a rooftop restaurant but if you are looking to see the Acropolis at night, this is not the place. The location was great where shops and restaurants are within walking distance. I definitely recommend this hotel. Free Wifi in the room. Turn down service with chocolates.

We visited Athens for 48 hours! The main reason we visited Athens was to go to The Acropolis Museum, Acropolis, Monastiraki, Megaro Mousikis, Kolonaki, Syntagma. The New hotel is at the excellent location to visit all these places on foot! Moreover, it was very clean, amazing modern design with authentic traditional greek element and impressively nice breakfast. A true refreshing experience. Love it
