We started our honeymoon trip in Athens and were so glad to have come across the Periscope Hotel in the upscale neighbourhood of Kolonaki. A mere 10-minute walk to the metro station (Evangelismos) and about a 20min walk to the bustling Syntagma Square, this hotel is located very strategically but also provides the peace and quiet you need to unwind after a tiring day out exploring Athens. There are plenty of shops, cafes and restaurants nearby, and the Lycabettus Hill is just up the road for a breath-taking view of the whole of Athens!
We were also very impressed with the service provided by all the staff at the hotel. The guys at reception were ever helpful and gave useful tips and advice about our travels. When they heard we had to check out at 6am to catch our ferry, they arranged for breakfast boxes for us to take along since we were going to miss our complimentary breakfast!
The room we stayed in was very clean with a very comfortable king sized bed and soft pillows! Bathroom was also quite spacious!
We cant seem to fault this place really. Considering the service, modern rooms, decent breakfast and location, the room rates are actually very reasonable. Highly recommended!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Periscope is the YES! Hotels antidote to the ordinary city hotel. Modern minimalism and award-winning architectural design create a Young, Energetic and Seductive urban haven, right at the heart of Kolonaki, the oldest and most exclusive neighborhood in Athens. The original mundane building, dating from the 1950s, is now a tribute to clean lines and uncluttered spaces, balancing ergonomic solutions with urban aesthetics. Form, color, and texture create a feeling of order and tranquility. A modern ‘home’ for the long weekend or for the short break, Periscope is a firm favorite among business and leisure travelers. Situated in the coveted Haritos Street, number 22, Periscope is just a 10 minutes’ walk from Syntagma square and a 5 minutes’ walk from Evangelismos Metro station. It is also a 30 minutes’ car drive both from Athens International Airport and the port of Piraeus. ... more less
