Magna Grecia Hotel

Magna Grecia Hotel

Map
54 Mitropoleos St., Athens, 10563, Greece

Rooms in this 1898 former residence with ornate Rococo embellishments are romantic Belle Époque fantasies that fly in the face of minimalist chic. Even the location—opposite the Mitrópoli cathedral on the border of Plaka, with a pedestrian street on one side—is steeped in old Athens. Six of the 10 rooms (all named after Greek islands) have Parthenon views, as does the rooftop breakfast terrace, which is enclosed in winter, allowing for coffee with a view year-round. With its tiny elevator and winding staircase, this is more of an inn than a hotel, but rooms have the requisite amenities (TV, DVD, AC) and fill up quickly, so book in advance.

Rooms to Book: Mykonos and Zakynthos, the largest doubles, with views of the Acropolis.
