I totally recommend this hotel. It is not only in the heart of Athens but also in a perfect and safe location. The neighborhood seems unaffected from the financial crisis and is full of great shops and restaurants. Moreover, the rooms are extremely clean and the breakfast is tasty. Congratulations to the excellent (!) and very very helpful staff.

I decided to book Periscope, for its location. I have stayed there before back in 2007. The service is excellent, as well as the cleanliness of the room. The serious problem is that there is no lobby and you have to sit in the dinning room if you want to have a cup of coffee or meet with a bussiness...

This hotel is a little gem, sittuated in a gorgeous, trendy part of Athens, full of great shops and restaurants. There is an authenticity to this part of Athens (the Kolonaki District) which you don't get in the more touristy parts of the city. Staying in Kolonaki we felt like we got an insight into the real Athens, which for...

Hotel Periscope is a very modern hotel in an ancient city. Located in the Kolonski area with cafes and restaurants, the location could not be better for exploring Athens on foot. Also, the location being in a quiet street means little noise at night after a full day out. The restaurant on the ground floor served an excellent breakfast and...

First of all, the Kolonaki area of Athens is posh and understated, and full of great restaurants, cafes, bars, bakeries, and shopping. From the Periscope Hotel, it takes minutes to walk to the beginning of one of the best hikes in town, Lycabettus/Likavittos Hill, with stunning views of the city from the Acropolis to the port of Pireas (most will...

This hotel is located in the heart of Kolonaki, in close proximity of bars, restaurants and shopping, yet secluded in a smaller street giving you quiet. The rooms are modern and minimalistic. There is no parking within the hotel so you are better off walking or taking a taxi. Also, the restaurant on the ground floor named Pbox is well...

Staying in Kolonaki / Lykavittos

Neighbourhood Profile
Kolonaki / Lykavittos
By far the ritziest neighbourhood in town, Kolonaki is home to most of the chic boutiques and designer label stores. Here, the wealthy say no to austerity by dressing in their finest and spending hours in the trendy cafés around Kolonaki Square, sipping the most expensive coffee in Europe. The area also contains a couple of notable museums and cultural institutions, which add to the air of nobility. The leafy upper reaches of Kolonaki transition into Lykavittos Hill, the highest point in central Athens. Climb the paths through its wooded slopes to the tiny chapel at the top, from where you are rewarded with stunning views across the Acropolis to the sea and even the mountains of the Peloponnese on a clear day. The wooden amphitheater up here hosts regular concerts during the summer.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Periscope is a minimal city hotel with an impressive urban architecture, located on a quiet street, minutes away from Kolonaki square. The hotel draws its name from its electric periscope, a fantastic way to visit Athens from a distance! In the Lounge Bar, guests can find a remote control for a periscope located on the roof of the hotel. With a 360 degree range, the periscope's views, which guests select, are shown real time on a big plasma TV. ... more   less
