Hotels in Athens
Hotels in Athens are luxurious and are located near the most famous attractions. The Astir Palace is one great location to stay at. Set amid the backdrop of pine trees on the Athenian Riviera, this lodging features 1960’s architecture as well as a series of sunken tubs and plunge pools. Bathe in luxury as you savor the beautiful coastal views that surround this lodging.
The Baby Grand Hotel contains 55 graffiti clad rooms. Each room boasts a creative piece of artwork in the urban tradition, from street and Japanese art to famous cartoon characters. Each of the rooms also feature private terraces overlooking the city. This is one of the best hotels in Athens.
Hotel Grande Bretagne’s neoclassical architecture mirrors the architecture of the city of Athens itself. This former palace has pampered celebrities and politicians like Joan Collins and Jacques Chirac, and the lodging features magnificent views of the Acropolis.

At Fresh Hotel, color is key: hot pinks, neon oranges, and cherry reds pop up everywhere, from the check-in desk to the bedside vases. The hotel’s 133 rooms follow the standard minimalist guidelines—plastic furniture, Eames chairs, and Artemide bedside lighting.
Athens’s landmark hotel is a local legend. During WWII, a busboy saved Winston Churchill’s life by disarming a bomb in the basement. Three separate actors who played James Bond have stayed here, as have royalty and various heads of state.

Some of Greece’s most influential names—including Greek Vogue fashion director Michalis Pantos—are behind the design of this hotel. The 110 rooms (some fuchsia and dark green; others sky blue and brown) have faux tiger-skin rugs, while Room 415 is painted with a mural of winged angels.
Austin Powers comes to mind upon entering this hotel, the brainchild of Greek modern-art collector Dakis Joannou and Egyptian-English interior-industrial designer Karim Rashid.
This huge complex on a private peninsula jutting out into the Saronic Gulf is a legendary resort (look for its bungalows in classic Greek films of the 1960s) that has had a major makeover in the last few years.
This seven-story property rises above a winding stretch of coastline between Athens and Cape Sounio, home to the Temple of Poseidon. The 88 rooms are stylishly sparse: pale wood furniture, crisp white bedding, opaque curtains.
The best views are of the 76 rooms themselves at this witty and whimsical graffiti-artist-decorated boutique hotel.
The periscope mounted on top of this 21-room boutique hotel in elegant Kolonaki means even the ground-floor bar gets an aerial view of Athens (displayed on a TV screen).
