Reviewed yesterday NEW

I have been trying since Thursday to check availability and to book two rooms with them via their e-Mail adress. I have sent two messages but they don´t bother to reply. For a hotel that touts itself as luxurious this is highly unprofessional

I had heard great things about the top-floor New Hotel Art Lounge restaurant. I visited it yesterday and was very disappointed. The environment was very nice, with great views towards Lycabettus Hill and Syntagma Square, but the service was bad and the food, well, awful. I had two fish dishes, one with scallops and one with sole fish, and in...

The hotel is new, lovely interior design and reception. Rooms are very nicely decorated and modern. Though it was a suite, it did not have any view (rear of the building) and no welcome fruit basket like other hotels, not even a coffee machine. The roof top have a lovely view, but service was awful and the waitress was not...

Love New hotel in Athens, its beautifully located near downtown and the decoration and design are outstanding! Great terrace bar views and I adore the mystery it portrays from the wooden back walls, to the elevator!

Great location and the staff is the best!! You're greeted at the door with water and chocolates. :-) The room decors are very nice...just don't be shocked with some of the artwork lol. The lobby 'wall' of broken furniture is so cool! Clean, comfortable and overall a great visit....we stayed for 3 nights.

Wow, this was the perfect place in Athens! Just minutes from the Acropolis and the Placka area. The hotel staff was great! We left shoes in our room after check out and they emailed me. The buffet breakfast was delicious. We had dinner at the hotel on the 7th floor and that was fantastic. The view from the top was...

Having traveled Internationally for business for over twenty five years; I've stayed at many "five star +" hotels on 6 different continents. None of them can hold a candle to NEW! Which you'll notice upon entering the NEW Hotel- the aroma therapy candle scent. I must say this tiny unique boutique hotel, nestled quietly away in the heart of downtown...

My husband and I stayed here four nights in February while visiting Athens, and we absolutely loved New. Stylish, elegant, fun decor. Our room had a balcony, plush bed and pillows, blue "evil eye" lights. On several occasions we enjoyed the rooftop bar (try the dirty blonde!). Great location--we walked all over Plaka, to the national archaeological museum, to the...

Staying in Syntagma

Neighbourhood Profile
Syntagma
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
