This sleek hotel couldn’t be more central, set on the corner of Athens’ historic Syntagma Square, just 25 mins on foot to the Acropolis and with the vibrant boutiques and cafes of Kolonaki on the doorstep. Opened in September 2020, everything is brand new and looking swish.
There are 177 chic rooms and suites, and the hotel has a boutique feel, with immaculate, personal service, and hundreds of original artworks by Greek artists intergrated into its design and decor.
As well as the plethora of dining options surrounding the hotel, you can dine in at the hotel’s own all-day restaurant MFlavours which serves Greek and Mediterranean cuisine in an open-kitchen concept, or grab a coffee or cocktail with a side of local fine art at the Galerie Cafe. And at sunset, make a beeline to the hotel’s spectacular roof terrace which is where you’ll find the Mappemonde Restaurant and Bar, the perfect spot for drinks and dinner overlooking the Acropolis as the sun goes down.
Also up on the roof terrace is the hotel’s pièce de résistance – a stunning heated infinity pool, surrounded by sunloungers, and with views over the city – the ideal spot to relax after a day of sightseeing whilst still maintaining an incredible sense of place.
Gym-bunnies will be pleased to know there’s a small but well-chosen collection of top-of-the-line cardio and strength-training equipment available at the hotel gym, and the hotel can provide jogging trail maps around the city, an ideal way to get to know the city whilst staying fit at the same time.
With everything on point and some of the most competitive five star rates in town, Athens Capital Hotel by MGallery is a most welcome addition to the city’s luxury hotel scene.
