The scent, design and rooftop are the main reasons to choose again this place. Near to center, just five minutes to walk, this hotel shows good care for details and confortabile rooms even if the bathroom is small. Nice staff.

The hotel has fantastic contemporary art piece. You can have a good view of the Acropolis especially from the penthouse! Friendly and helpful hotel staffs. Unfortunately, the breakfast selection is limited. Or else it would be perfect!

Good value : excellent secluded bar on the 7th floor: Olga at reception is one of the most helpful attendants ever. A very friendly concierge. Excellent breakfast selection. Walking distance from the city centre. Rooms are a shade small but tastefully designed.

Excellent services, friendly and welcoming staff. Tasty and luxurious breakfast. Clean and nice rooms and bathrooms. Central location, ideal for tourism, sightseeing and business. WiFi included in the room, but not working at all times-unknown reason. Booked through company, but rather expensive, checking the online price.

Staying in Syntagma

Neighbourhood Profile
Syntagma
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
