Whilst this modern hotel boats stylish, retro-chic features, a wonderful roof-top restaurant and pool with views to the Acropolis, its location in the old town means key sites are all within walking distance. The church of Agia Dynmis is situated literally just outside of reception! To rest those weary feet, enjoy the lovely spa which offers a pool, sauna and steam room. A selection of luxury rooms and suites, some with Acropolis views, ensures plenty of comfortable options whether travelling as a couple or family.

  • rooms

    Those on a budget can opt for one of the Standard Rooms which include satellite TV, mini-bar and marble-tiled bathroom, although a Classic offers more space at 25 square metres.

    If design is important to you, consider one of the Internal Art Rooms (please note no external views) whilst Superior Rooms are larger still with street views. Opt for a Deluxe Room if you would prefer a view of Lycabettus or, top of the tree, in terms of views, has to be the Deluxe Acropolis View Rooms with a spectacular outlook from the balcony.

    Those seeking more space can opt for a Suite, with sitting-room divided from the bedroom by sliding door, 2 TVs and additional toilet. As with the rooms, some Suites offer stunning views of Lycabettus and the Acropolis for a supplement.

  • facilities & activities

    After exploring the city, guests can luxuriate in the facilities of the basement Spa & Wellness Centre, including the free-of-charge pool and adjacent steam and sauna room, whilst the small roof-top pool with views to Lycabettus Hill is generally open from mid-April. The Fitness Centre allows you to keep in shape during your stay - that is if you feel walking about this fascinating City is not sufficient exercise in itself!

  • dining

    The Metropolis Roof Garden and M Bar showcase stunning views of the Acropolis from the tenth floor.  Here you can enjoy creative Greek cuisine to the backdrop of an unforgettable view.
    On the ground floor The Library Bistro offers more casual dining with dishes focusing on Mediterranean cuisine, looking out over the lively city-centre or grab a quick coffee or even light meal in the Atrium lounge-bar.
  • family

    The central location helps keep tiredness in check when it comes to little ones, as does a dip in the Spa pool (open to children age 3 – 11 before 2pm, but flexibility allows use for older children in the afternoon) and/or small roof-top pool (general open from around mid-April).

    Triple Superior rooms are slightly larger than Superior Doubles at 32 square metres, ideal for one child sharing on a sofa-bed, or upgrade to a Suite with separate sitting room with sofa-bed for an additional sleeping space (a second child may be allowed to share with an extra bed, but this is subject to confirmation at time of booking). Alternatively 2 young children can share a larger sofa-bed in an Executive Suite boasting 40 square metres or for more family space and two bathrooms, book inter-leading Superior Rooms with central lobby.

  • location

    The hotel is situated in the heart of the city, a 45-minute taxi-ride from the airport depending on traffic, and within walking distance of the Acropolis.
