Located on Filellinon Street, next to Constitution Square (Syntagma Square), the hotel is perfectly positioned for the sights of Athens, including the ruins of Plaka, the Acropolis and its museum, the stylish boutique shopping district of Kolonaki, and the bustling business zone. New Hotel Athens celebrates its incredible location through its designers. The Campanas worked together with local architecture students from the University of Thessaly to combine design and culture, which collide on every floor. Each of the 79 bedrooms emulate one of three concepts stemming from Greek culture, with postcards, local Athenian sculptures and shadow puppets, and custom made furniture and fixtures are found throughout, making guests feel as though they are living in a major art installation. The Campana’s influence extends to New Taste, the restaurant. Located on the ground floor, it is based on the iconic Favela Chair, with columns covered in long narrow strips of wood, reminiscent of the favelas in Brazil, and pieces of furniture from the old Olympic hotel. The all day restaurant serves a menu based on simple dishes from the Mediterranean, cooked using the finest and freshest produce, a popular place for guests and Athenians alike.
Guests can choose from six types of rooms at New Hotel Athens: Standard, Superior, Superior Plus, Studios, Junior Suite and for a real treat the newly completed Penthouse Suite. The Penthouse Suite is 65sqm and has bespoke furniture in the bedroom and separate lounge area, while the bathroom is cast entirely of marble. The suite’s terrace offers 360° views of Athens’ historical landmarks, including the Acropolis, Lycabettus Hill.
Rates start at EUR 235 (high season) per room per night
