Expert reviews

New York Times review:

“The arty and bold New Hotel, designed by Fernando and Humberto Campana, two brothers, is situated near Syntagma and has 79 beautifully designed rooms. The hotel also has an excellent restaurant and the seventh-floor rooftop New Art Lounge and is decorated with contemporary art collected by its Greek-Cypriot owner, Dakis Joannou.”

Featured in New York Times’ 36 Hours in Athens.

CNN review:

“At this 79-room hip boutique hotel in the centrally located neighborhood of Syntagma, it’s all about the design. After all, the hotel is owned by Dakis Joannou, one of the most famous art collectors in Greece.”

Lonely Planet review:

“Brazilian designers, the Campana designers, melded their signature scraps-to-art style with Greek-folk touches and old Athens photos, creating a space that’s full of fun eye candy.”

Fodors review:

“Since its much-anticipated opening in 2011, the New Hotel has easily maintained the architectural cutting-edge style that made news headlines at the time. Excellent central location? Check. Good service? Check. Rooftop bar with Acropolis views? Check. Hefty price tag? Check.”

Featured as Fodor’s Choice in Athens.

Telegraph review:

“This city-centre hotel incorporates the long-standing history and modern, hip culture of Athens through its beautiful contemporary design and imaginative spaces. It also features an impressive rooftop bar and restaurant and a stunningly unique Penthouse Suite.”

What guests liked

All you need to know

The New Hotel is a haven for lovers of art, architecture and enriched culture. It was reconstructed from the dull Olympic Palace to this vibrant mix of color and art by Greek Cypriot art collector, Dakis Joannou. It is a dash of new flavor to an old but golden recipe.

Located in a historic Athenian neighborhood near Syntagma Square, it is centered in a prime area for commercial activity and sightseeing. New Hotel stands out for its reanimated modernist structure in a sea of classicism. The top-floor terrace provides a great view of Athens.

The interior decor is a mix of lively pastels and a mismatch of culture collisions, brought to life by Brazilians, Humberto and Fernando Campana. Each room is designed to showcase different aspects of Greek culture. However, it follows the exterior theme of modernism and regeneration. They all contain a private bathroom, flat-screen TV and pay-per-view channels.

The smoking-free hotel is a few minutes’ distance from main attractions like the Jewish Museum of Greece, Roman Ruins of Plaka, the Acropolis and its new museum, and the cafe and boutique shopping district of Kolonaki. This hotel is the ideal choice to leisure and business travelers alike.

Great place for a family to stay and explore Athens.

Good location, friendly and helpful staff.

some traffic noise at night but that goes with a great location for sightseeing.

Modern city style hotel with amazing staff

Central location, all important sights in a walking distance. Rooms modern and clean. Staff extremely nice and helpful. Breakfast superb with wide selection and great quality of food.

Athens is a busy city with a lot of cars and scooters. The hotel is located at a crossing and if your room faces the street you will hear the noise which can be disturbing during the night for those who dont sleep well.

Very modern hotel with all facilities and super friendly and calm staff

Breakfast options are quite poor. That was the reason why we didn’t rate hotel to 10/10.

close to severything. room was nice. noise is excessive close to streets and trash collection.

great location

outside noise from the room at night


4 September 2022

great location, all new hotel.

The hotel is a great location, easy to get everywhere. helpful staff, very new and very comfortable. Downside is it is rather close to a very busy road, if you do open your balcony door it is very loud. however windows are double glazed, so when closed it is quiet.

Value for money… although the facilities are great, I think it is a little overpriced. I was paying similar prices for hotels on the Greek islands with phenomenal service and location.

Good location but too pricey for what it offers

Proximity to the Acropolis. Funky decoration. Nice roof top bar.

Too much noise coming from the road outside. There were earplugs in the room, we should have guessed…I think it is overly priced.
