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.
This is the second best museum in Athens after The National Archaeological Museum. It has the finest collection of large Cycladic statues in the world.

The Benaki Museum of Greek Civilization is a hive of beautiful Greek art and material representing the country's culture and traditions. One can see Prehistoric, Ancient Greek and Roman antiquities as well as the Byzantine Collection. The beautiful neoclassical-style building is worth seeing, too.
We went not particularly to see the church, but rather to have lunch and take in the panoramic view at the top of the hill. Indeed it was beautiful like all greek orthodox churches. It is rather small but its probably not meant to serve a large congregation. A otherwise serene place for reflection (except during the Summer months)
Don't get mislead by the appearance...true that it doesn't look as glamorous as other restaurants in Kolonaki, but this place is great. Food is fresh and portions are big.
A bit of a shame about the staff...not as friendly as in other places in Athens...maybe they had a bad day :-)
We really enjoyed stay at Coco-Mat Hotel in Athens. It is little bit away from city center, but Metro commute is easy. We had a good stay with nice beds and healthy pillows. Brrakfast was rich and fresh. Bice rooms. Would definitelye reccomebt for price/quality balance ir you are ok to travel to city center 30 min.
Great hotel in the nice and famous neighborhood... clean and comfy rooms... wonderful, profesional and very helpful staff... beautiful receptionists... the most beautiful manager in the world... the best coffee ever
I spent three days in this hotel, and the outcome is positive, the services in general are good, the staff very nice (with a smile on the face), the bar on the roof is simply amazing and the bedrooms are fine, clean as well.
The only remark that I have to mentioned is the gym....sorry but it’s to small and...
