We loved this hotel from the first moment. The staff were very nice and helpful. I loved the free chocolate and water you have at the entrance. After experiencing bad coffee at other hotels we decided to go straight out on the first morning trying to follow tripadvisor suggestions for best coffee in athens. What a huge mistake, after walking...

From the moment we arrived and were offered a drink and a sweet to the time we left we could not fault the New Hotel. The staff were very very helpful, our room was great. I loved the wall of 'evil eyes' that you could light up at night. The breakfast was fantastic and the staff were very helpful. We...

Taking a visit to Athens, Greece entails staying centrally located in order to experience the city properly. The New Hotel is in the heart of Athens and makes for a great point to see explore most of the points of interest. The New Hotel beckons modernism combined with an artistic taste.

Overall okie hotel, very polite frontdesk staff. Unfortunately, our experience was marred by the lack of water provided. Strange that they place chocolates in your room in the evening but no water. We ended up paying EUR 5 for a bottle of water delivered to the room! The restaurant on the 7th floor was also disappointing, pasta was tastely, fish...

As a regular visitor to Athens with over 30 trips to my favorite city, I looked forward to my stay with great anticipation, as my Athenian friends had highly touted the "New". Traveling with us, were two friends, who were repeat visitors to Athens, who were friends (not a couple). I had initially requested one room with two single beds,...

Checking into this hotel we did not have very high expectations since it is a small boutique hotel and relatively new. However, we were pleasantly surprised by the level of comfort and most importantly the food in the hotel. The rooms were very clean and well decorated. Room service menu was not extensive but almost every dish we tried was...

Really a nice hotel! Ideally located, near enough to all the attractions but far enough from the hustle and bustle of Athens. The view of the Acropolis is not as advertised though! You can see it from their restaurant, with a lots neck muscle flexibility!! All in all, would definitely recommend it!!

I chose this hotel after reading Trip Advisor reviews and my husband and I were extremely happy!! The New Hotel is close to everything - you can walk to the Acropolis and many restaurants.

Excellent location which is convenient (easy walking distance) to all major attractions, restaurants and shopping. I got a superior room on the second floor on the side road which was comfortable with unique decorations. I requested a "quiet room", but it was still quite noisy. The rooms on the main road would be worse. Lots of light switches which is...

This hotel made our first stay in athens a memorable one. The location was fantastic, being a quick walk to the Acropolis and monastiraki. Tons of cafes, food options, shopping nearby. The staff was one of the best I've experienced. Incredibly attentive and helpful for a couple of first timers.

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.
