Fodor's Review

Years in the making, the cutting-edge New Hotel was heralded as an aesthetic triumph in the inner city's ever-changing landscape when it opened in 2011, and it has maintained its edge, all for the better. Part of the chain of Yes! hotels that has been masterminded by the celebrated modern art collector Dakis Ioannou, it's also the first large-scale interior design project ever undertaken by the noted architectural Campana brothers. Their personal stamp is evident as soon as you enter the lobby: one wall is a gigantic "art piece" comprised of broken, recycled wood furniture from the old hotel that used to stand here. Upstairs, ultramodern guest rooms integrate three retro themes in their decor: the Karagkiozis shadow theater puppets (for example, you find six of these silhouetted on a flamingo-pink wall), the traditional "evil eye" charms, and those kitschy vintage postcards of Athens spanning the 1950s to the ’80s and, here, decoupaged on walls in striking groups. For great views, book rooms on the sixth floor.
