While on a business trip I just spent one night at the New Hotel in downtown Athens. I didn't know what to expect but upon checking in I immediately felt how much the staff genuinely cares or their guests. Professional, frinedly and dedicated personnel everywhere, that make you feel as a valued guest at anytime during your stay.
The hotel itself is a true gem. You may call it a designer hotel as every detail in the common areas and in each room has been meticolously designed from scratch, often using cleverly "recycled and renewed" furniture, while the unconventional layout of the room - the designer certainly had a penchant for gold, which is reflected in every detail of the bathroom, from the sink to the waste bin! -, make it stand out of the crowd.
On the seventh floor the Art Lounge, offers a fantastic view of Plaka and the surrounding Hills, along with a well stocked library and art collection.
Breakfast's highlights were a nice buffet where you can have your eggs cooked as per your request along with the freshest and tastiest pain au chocolat and croissants I ever had in a hotel.
A great address in Athens, and one to warmly recommend.
