Hotels in Greece

The history of this three-level island hotel goes back into the 19th century: built in 1895, it belonged to historic Symi Island figures like Vangelitsa, and was remodeled in 2000.

The “art” in the hotel’s name may refer to the hotel’s proximity to the famed National Archaeological Museum or the paintings by Greek artists on the walls of the 30 rooms in this converted 1930 mansion. Rooms combine modern and Neoclassical (e.g., gilt-framed mirrors and contemporary bedding).

Near Mykonos’ iconic windmills on the west coast, this hilltop hotel maintains 22 whiter-than-white rooms and suites across five villas accented with light touches of pastel fabrics, wrought-iron beds, and wood furniture.

Stay in a stone-turreted fortress, once used to fend off Turks, Venetians, and pirates, on the shore of a private bay. Athenians make the 3 1/2-hour drive to this castle by the sea, drawn by the oceanfront pool and unparalleled views of the Mediterranean sunset from the terrace.

The 12-room whitewashed Melenos Lindos is a quiet refuge in the popular town of Lindos, on the Grecian island of Rhodes. Designer Michalis Melenos drew from the area’s mixed artistic heritage—Greek, Byzantine, Arabic, Ottoman—in creating the hotel.

Centrally located beside Omonia Square, the Alassia hotel provides affordable accommodations within walking distance of Plaka (old town) and tourist attractions like the National Archaeological Museum of Athens.

This simple but charming B&B with an excellent location inside the city’s historic walls sits opposite an antiques store and below the Byzantine Museum.

Once the home of a sea captain, La Maltese Estate Hotel is now an impeccable six-room Relais & Châteaux boutique hotel in the village of Imerovigli, a quiet area sandwiched between the two main tourist towns of Fira and Oia on Santorini’s steep western edge.

There’s a nautical theme at Anemomilos Apartments, on a cliff with easy access to the village of Hora. Whitewashed walls, private patios, and vistas of the Aegean more than make up for the sparsely decorated rooms. The real draw, however, is the lovely stone-terraced pool and pergola lounge.

Neoclassical hotel with 102 individually decorated rooms, in the center of Athens, just off Constitution Square.
