These Are the Trendiest Hotels in Athens Right Now

Natasha Giannousi-Varney | February 01, 2018

As the wave of short city breaks swells, Athens seems to be benefiting exponentially, with travelers and revelers setting their sights on this amazing capital. It’s a juxtaposition of ancient and modern, wealthy and poor, run-down and restored; whilst the now well-traveled Athenian youth, brimming with the newest ideas, fashions and trends are setting up hip new businesses and transforming existing ones. Take a look at some of the hippest accommodation options currently on offer.


Pi Athens

Why it made the list

A petit boutique hotel (6 suites and apartments of varying sizes) in the residential area of Pangrati, set behind the white marble Panathenaic stadium, which was built for the first Olympic games of the modern era. Urban chic, finished in plenty of shades of grey (and some wood), with distant views of the Acropolis from the higher suites and the roof terrace. Hitting the town center proper means walking through the National Garden (a lovely walk, to be fair), or taking a short (and cheap, at 3.60 euros) taxi ride, however exploring this quarter has its rewards too, as you’ll come across some really excellent and popular bars and tavernas.

Coco-mat Hotel Athens

Why it made the list

Better known for making exquisite, top of the range eco-mattresses, Coco-mat has recently turned its attention to creating boutique lodgings around these mattresses. This ecologically-minded Greek brand comfortably incorporates a modish urban/industrial chic hotel above their flagship store which now also doubles as the reception. All this in the highly desirable Kolonaki district, in the heart of Athens, home to some of the best museums and galleries in town. By the by, guests can explore the capital on their very cool wooden bicycles (for no extra charge).

Why it made the list

Step out of the bustling streets into the cool atrium, the haven-like centerpiece of this boutique hotel property in the heart of Athens. Just off Syntagma square and the Greek Parliament, most of Athens’ incomparable sights are a lively and intriguing urban hike away. In this small (22 rooms) and unique (for Athens) hotel, the modern, fresh design is eye-catching, fun, yet ergonomic.

Why it made the list

Very cool spot in a grungy but hip corner of central Athens (Psirri), within walking distance to all the major sites of what was once a center of enlightenment and the capital of the ancient world. Many of the 22 rooms and suites, in this anything but grungy boutique hotel, have spectacular views of the Acropolis and Thissio area. Staff are wonderful and the hotel boasts its very own little gourmet restaurant (innovative Greek). Plenty of nightlife nearby too.
