Luxury boutique hotel within easy walking distance of the Plaka and Parthenon. Very good value, with large, comfortable rooms and all the services and amenities you'd expect from a top-notch luxury hotel. I was in touch with concierge service during the time leading up to our visit, and they responded promptly and were quite helpful. Highly recommend.

I love the art around the hotel/in our room, and it smelled so good (you can actually buy their room spray). Lots of cool features in our room and breakfast options are amazing (and included in the price). The staff are so friendly and helpful. They made me feel like a v.i.p! Hotel is pretty close to Plaka and ruins.

We stayed at the New Hotel for 3 days at the beginning of our trip, and 3 days at the end of our trip on a tour of Greece. Everything about it was excellent. Although the room was small, it was very nice. Our first room had a little balcony that we enjoyed sitting on after a day of walking...

Quirky, modern, well positioned in the centre of Athens! Staff were fantastic. Roof top bar stunning location! The decor of the hotel is made from old bits and pieces of furniture etc from the old hotel, really adds to the charm. Staff were great with printing docs, transport suggestions and generally just lovely people. Breakfast was FANTASTIC

Was there at New Hotel Athens last month. The first thing and most important for any Tourist is location of the hotel, and New Hotel scores full marks for that. Rooms are small but that would be the case of most centrally located hotels in most European Cities. Rooms have a New and Modern feeling. Striking feature is Art Work...

I stayed at the New Hotel for five nights and found it very conveniently located. It is in a great location for exploring many of Athens' top attractions. That said, it is on a very busy street and there is a grittiness to the immediate area. However, the great thing about this hotel (which took me a day to realize)...

The hotel room layout was just peculiar and absolutely no privacy in the bathroom. We had a junior suite and it offered no privacy or sound barriers in the bathroom. We are a married couple and it was still awkward. Location was convenient to site seeing. Athens is a run down city. You only need 1 1/2 days to see...

We had a particular problem with our stay at the New Hotel, Athens this September 2015 over the use of a ‘Mr and Mrs Smith’ gift voucher for £175 we received from our daughter as a Christmas present last year. I’ll deal with the hotel itself later in this review. One month after our return to England this has now...

Dear Guest, Thank you for choosing New Hotel during your vacation on Athens. As mentioned in your review the voucher that you presented during your check in could only be redeemed by Mr. & Mrs. Smith.

Due to the "fun" Greek economy we returned to Athens a couple of days early (we usually just fly in and back out again). The New Hotel was a hidden gem. Lovely room and great central location - an ideal base for Plaka and all the usual tourist sights

Staying in Syntagma

Neighbourhood Profile
Syntagma
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
