New Hotel is a recent rather arty renovation. You may like the decor or not (I had mixed feelings), but the amenities function well throughout the property. The rooms are clean, elegant and practical. The staff is VERY courteous, efficient and helpful. The location is top notch for a short stay. We loved it.

The New Hotel is an excellent home base for exploring Athens. It's within walking distance of nearly everything. The staff is exceptionally friendly and accommodating - they made sure our room was ready early on the day we checked in and generally went above and beyond. Our room was great, had a slight view of the Acropolis, and the decor...

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.
