Pros : Walking distance to everywhere! The loacation is excellent and there was a nice authentic greek restaurant nearby : Palea Athina.

The rooms were very modern, artistic, and large. I especially love the smell of this hotel!

Nice bar upstairs. Will definitely stay here again!

Stayed October 2013, travelled as a couple

We stayed in Athens for two nights with our 13 and 16 year old sons. One room for us with a queen/one for them with twin beds. Very clean hotel, smaller European style quirky modernistic rooms. Fabulous combo buffet/a la carte breakfast can be included in room rate in a very strongly positively reviewed ground floor restaurant. Upper floor restaurant was worth the view but the food was good, not great. Ask the hotel staff for local taverna reservations for dinner - the best might be a short cab ride away but worth it!

Room Tip: Get a high floor room for quiet and comfort.

We stayed here for three nights during our sojourn in Athens. Our first stop after our 26 hour flight from Sydney, Australia was the rooftop bar, which assuaged exhausted bodies with Greek tipple and an easy breezy view of the city and acropolois, lovely! We stayed in #402 which was well sized, no real view but away from the quaint historic Greek church located next door that chimes out booming bell tolls from 6.45am onwards! Nothing for us to worry about as, with jet lag and getting accustomed to the time difference, was no real issue for us. But local or EU brethren may find a tad disruptive to a nice holiday sleep in... All in all a great boutique hotel located a hop, skip and a jump away from Plaka restaurants, bars and shops and a 10 min walk to the Acropolis.

Very clean, very modern, great location, great views, awesome breakfast, good gym, awesome rooftop bar/restaurant and great staff. Overall we had a great stay. Staff was very helpful in guiding us around the city of Athens. Rooms are amazingly clean and modern. Couldn't have asked for anything more.

The staff at the New Hotel are extremely friendly and helpful, and this would be a great place for someone unfamiliar with Athens or Greece to stay. There is nightly turn down service, which is nice, and again, I can't say enough good things about the staff.

The hotel has a very modern design, which is interesting, but that also means that some of the sinks are very loud when the faucet is turned on, and the design of the toilets is such that they are very loud when they are flushed. The toilet area (at least in 514) is only concealed by frosted glass, so not exactly the most private area.

While the hotel is situated close to many of the major sights (Acropolis, Acropolis Museum, Plaka, Agora, etc.), it's on the busiest section of Filellinon, which has major traffic jams in the morning. If you are only visiting sights on foot, this won't be much of an issue. If you are bringing a car, this is not the best choice. This also means that it's not a quiet area, so if noise is an issue for you, you might want to consider bringing ear plugs or staying at a place with better sound proofing (like the King George).

Stayed for 2 nights at New Hotel near the Plaka in Athens. It was a wonderful location for walking to the Acropolis and surrounding sites. The hotel has been completely redone in an understated modern way. The rooms were large (for Europe), clean and decorated beautifully.
The wifi was free and very fast. The staff were very attentive and friendly. When we checked in the reception discovered there was a birthday in our party from looking at our passports. To our surprise, she had a cake sent to the birthday girl's room. Will definitely stay at New Hotel when returning to Athens!

My husband and I stayed in New Hotel in Athens at end of May and we were very pleased with this hotel. The location and the service were superb!! Our luggage didn't arrive in Athens with us and the lady at the concierge was so nice to help us to call the airline and ensure that the airline had located our luggage and delivered it during our stay. She didn't have to do that for us. But it was very nice that she did. The hotel is located in a central location and within walking distance to many of the attractions. We also enjoyed our dinner in the roof top restaurant in the hotel. It was one of the better meals I had in Greece! Thank you, the staff of the New Hotel for making our stay in Athens a very pleasant one!
