“WOW”
Reviewed 21 May 2012

So New, So Chic, So Groovy, So Savvy, I was blown away with the design, how clever. Spend time really looking at the decor it is amazing, The Location is fantastic close to the Plaka which I loved. So much shopping and cafes/restaurants. The New Hotel is so comfortable in every way, interaction with the staff is so easy they are really relaxed and so professional and fun. As a solo traveller it was a real breeze to stay at the New Hotel. The evil eye gift was a lovely touch and every time I look at my evil eye that now sits on my mantel at home I think of the New Hotel and really look forward to visiting again. The Clairns amenities were definitely fit for this travel Princess along with the comfy bathrobes and slippers. Free Wi-Fi worked well.

A very modern hotel with beautiful rooms. The decor of the room was wonderful with greek evil eyes on the walls, chic bathroom and really comfy bed. The service was exceptional. The staff was very attentive, even the bell hop spent time describing the decor of the place to us and explaining the designers work. Our only regret was that we there for only one night and arrived late and had to leave early in the morning. But not before experiencing their amazing breakfast.

The words are not enough to describe the wonderful experience I had when staying at this hotel. The design is really impressive. The staff is very friendly and polite. Everything is spotlessly clean not only the room but the other areas as well. As a previous reviewer mentioned the beds are indeed some of the best. The only downside I experienced was the soundproofing of the windows. As the hotel is on a busy road, the noise of the traffic could not be entirely ignored. I will definitely use the hotel regularly for my future trips to Athens.

hthe hotel is superb with classy furniture, top class staff and excellent food. above all, I sepnt 90 mns at the spa, back/neck massage+ facial with Tina and I think I've lost 10 years. Wonderful Tina has magic fingers and together with demalogica products makes your skin new and your body relax! you have to spend sometime there when you stop at Athenes

This was one of the reasons why our Athens trip was a success. The hotel is new, the staff is excellent, the breakfast is just great (real great cappuccino, incredible croissants), the hotel is very well located. The price was like 350 EUR for 3 days, not soo cheap but worth it.... if the hotel is within your budget.. just go for it! I am happy we checked tripadvisor before this trip!

The new hotel was really a pleasant experience. The staff are helpful and cordial, English was good. Check in and out was easy. Breakfast was included and though it's a bit light on options, what is offered is tasty. The yogurt is fantastic as youd expect. The walls are decorated/made with wood reclaimed from the previous hotel on that spot, a nice touch. A sixth floor room was the right choice, street noise from Fillenos was not too bad and the view was pretty good. I found the water pressure in the shower lacking, but not exceptionally so. The small spa and workout room was ok as well. All modern equipment, etc. Really a nice few days in an attractive and clean hotel with a nice staff. Book with confidence.

Reviewed 30 April 2012

This hotel is a mixed bag, some things are really good and others are not:

- Room: Stayed on the 5th floor and the had a nice balcony with view of (Filopappos) hill and an orthodox church. That being said, the room cramped with the bathroom being part of the room which isn't very practical. The shower/handshower combo is also hard to operate.

- Staff: the staff at the reception / concierge was extremely cordial and helpful. They helped plan the tourist visits and also helped open the bag locks when the key was lost. The staff at breakfast is a different story - impolite and arrogant with a weird setup. The stark difference in the two attitudes surprising.

- Location: Very central though a few minutes walk from the Syntagma metro station. okay if you don't have much luggage to haul.
