Insider Tip
  • Plaka, Athens' oldest residential quarter, is packed with neo-classical buildings, erected after Greece won independence from the Turks in 1834. Though mainly designed by foreigners, they were intended to affirm the national identity and were inspired by ancient Greek design principles. After decades of neglect, rich Athenians and foreigners have began restoring them to their former splendour.
Hotel Overview
  • Convenient setting
    Set in the district of Plaka on a quiet side street, this Athens hotel is near the new Acropolis Museum, Zappeion Exhibition Hall, The Roman Agora, and 500 metres from Syntagma Square's metro station to the Athens Airport.
  • Renovated rooms
    In the heart of the old city, the hotel has 150 fully renovated rooms and suites, plus restaurant, bar, and garden.
  • Fitness, spa facilities
    Extensive fitness facilities include indoor pool, steam bath, spa tub, sauna, gym, and massage room.
What to Expect:
  • Glass doors open into a large, airy marble lobby with an oak reception desk, sofas and low-level tables where tourists and businesspeople congregate. The hotel facade has been restored to match the neo-classical style of the Plaka area.
Amenity Highlights:
  • Guests have use of the spa facilities, comprising an indoor pool and jetted tub, sauna, steam bath, massage (surcharge), and fitness centre. The hotel's restaurant serves Mediterranean dishes and looks out onto a small, walled garden planted with palms and geraniums. Athens' balmy Mediterranean climate can be enjoyed with an outdoor drink, either in the walled garden, or on the roof terrace, with its panoramic city views.
