Secret Athens: The Most Fabulous Boutique Hotels You've Never Heard Of.

Featured Guide
Athens is known for the obvious, good food, great museums and (of course) The Acropolis. What most people don't know is that there are some really interesting hotels cropping up, that are hipster cool and wallet friendly.
These are some of my favorites.

King George Palace

THE LOCATION OF THIS HOTEL AND THE AMAZING SERVICE MAKE THIS A ONCE IN A LIFETIME EXPERIENCE. I had a superior room reserved and because the hotel wasnt full and I struck up a conversation with the Front Desk Clerk he upgraded me to a suite. This was one of the best stays I have ever experienced! The room...

Alice Inn Athens

You can book a suite or a whole house. The point is this is as 'Hipster' as Athens has. The suites with names like the 'Anthony Quinn Suite' and the 'Betty Boop Suite' they are chic, well appointed and the service is extremely personal. These suites will satisfy even the most discriminating traveler....

Semiramis

When I first drove up to this hotel I was a little startled. It was all neon lights with different colors on each floor. It was a little harsh and I was wondering why everyone had reccomended it. It only took me about 5 minutes to realize the hotel has a unique atmosphere. I loved it!!! It is modern but not so...

The Margi

One of my favorite hotels in the most scenic suburb of Athens. Vouliagmeni was the site of the 2004 Summer Olympic Games. The area the hotel is in is surrounded by both a lake and the sea. On a peninsula, the hotel enjoys spectacular views, the freshest seafood and a great nightlife. The Margi is sexy,...

A for Athens Hotel

This is an interesting place because it is a hotel but set up like apartments. Very clean and modern with an amazing staff. The location though is the best thing about this hotel. It is on a side street right off of Monastiraki Sq and faces the Acropolis. The metro is 100 yards away from the entrance. It...

Acropolis Museum Boutique Hotel

This hotel is a hidden gem! It almost feels a little bit 'camp' but that's just part of the charm. The location is very close to the main historical sights and right next to the New Acropolis Museum ( not to be missed.) It is a cross between a three and four star hotel, in theory. I gave it a 4* rating because...

Periscope Hotel

I really liked this very stark, very modern hotel. It is in the trendiest part of Athens in Kolonaki an area frequented by Fashionistas and The Euro Trash crowd. I love everything about the hotel... The vibe is that of a W Hotel and the people watching is unrivaled! The room amenities include Korres...

New Hotel Athens

This is a Fabulous Hotel recently opened in Athens by the Yes Hotel Group. It's modern,the service is great and the rooms comfortable. They have thought of all the little things that make a stay memorable.

Acropolis Ami Boutique Hotel

This hotel is in a good location about a 10 minute walk from major attractions. It is really nice that it is a bit off the beaten track so restaurants are more local and authentic. The rooms are basic, large, clean and have WiFi. The rooftop bar is a reason to come here. Recently renovated it is hipster...

Athens Diamond Hotel

This is one of the best boutique hotels I have ever stayed at. Very small and quaint the rooms are medium sized and have great touches like oversized mirrors and chandeliers. I love that it is so small that the staff knows who you are and that it is one block away from the main shopping area of Ermou and 1...
