“Athens, the eye of Greece, mother of arts and eloquence.”John Milton
Athens is the capital of Greece and is an old Mediterranean city. It is also the most popular city in Greece since it is home to several universities. Many foreigners visit Athens each year to soak in its historical and natural sites. They also visit Athens to party at nightclubs or enjoy a meal at a restaurant. However, some travelers find Athens’ nightlife scene too rowdy for their taste. They then choose to stay at a five-star hotel so that they can sleep soundly after a long night on the town.
1. Grand Hotel Bretagne
The best hotel in Athens. Situated on Syntagma Square in the center of the action and within walking distance to nearly all major attractions. The rooftop restaurant, and bar are wonderful – worth a visit even if you’re not a guest.
2. Four Seasons Astir Palace
Stunning Hotel in every way (for the price you pay it should be). Beautiful and spacious rooms with sea views, terrific private beaches and pools and service is outstanding. If you can afford it treat yourself.
3. King George Hotel
Classic, but very comfortable luxury hotel at the perfect location in Athens. Rooms are nice, food is outstanding and service is even more exceptional – their staff is proactive, empathic, very friendly, which makes your stay a real pleasure. To me, one of the best picks in Athens.
4. New Hotel
We stayed here while in Greece on our honeymoon. The rooms are spacious and we had a balcony which was very nice. The breakfast was a good spread and the location is excellent!
5. Electra Palace
Beautiful hotel and great service. All staff are very accommodating & offered great advice for exploring the city. I felt very safe during my stay. The view of the acropolis from the pool & restaurant was a great addition to our experience!
6. St George Lycabettus
Great location, wonderful views, and very clean. Bathrooms are small. Rooftop is amazing, with an amazing pool.
7. Periscope Hotel
I had a wonderful stay at Periscope. The staff are super friendly, the breakfast and food amenities were better than most hotels we’ve stayed at. They even have all day assortments of drinks and beverages for you to take when departing or returning to the hotel. The neighborhood is a great location as well. Tons of walking to cafes and restaurants, as well as the rest of the city. It’s also quiet at night so you can get a good night sleep.
It is one of the best hotels I’ve stayed in- and my wife and I travel quite a bit. The location is excellent and the breakfast is incredible- but what set it apart for me was the service. Every single employee we had contact with went above and beyond to ensure that we had everything we needed to be comfortable and to enjoy our time in Athens. I highly recommend this hotel if you’re planning a trip to Athens.
9. Divani Apollon Athens
An impressive hotel with hospitable and friendly staff. Rooms and bathrooms are a comfortable size, clean and stocked with hospitality items. The room has a decent sized balcony overlooking either the gardens and out to sea or directly out to sea. The staff went over-and-above, to make our stay as pleasurable as possible. Definitely a recommended hotel to stay when visiting Athens and surrounds.
10. Coco-Mat Athens
This place has the most professional staff I have met. They show extreme patience, energy and focus in everything they do. The hotel is clearly well run and they deliver a quality of experience you would struggle to find elsewhere in Athens.
