NEW Hotel

NEW Hotel

****

New Hotel is an arty party pad in central Athens. It might be in a Modernist Fifties building, but it’s completely cutting edge inside, courtesy of the Campana brothers and their eye-poppingly daring design. Expect slick staff, a restaurant serving food that’s as original as the decor and frequent fun nods to Greek culture.

Highlights:

  • Exciting, boundary-pushing design with lots of quirks

  • Central Athens locale – the main sites are within walking distance

  • Informal but efficient service courtesy of the hip young staff

In the know

Also need to know:

The communal areas are accessible for wheelchair users and one room has been adapted. The New Sense spa has a hammam, treatment room and Jacuzzi. If you've come from further afield, book in for a bespoke remedy treatment for jet lag. For couples, the spa special is a hammam for two, champagne in a bubble bath for one as the other has a hot-shell massage and then aromatic facial masks each.

Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

Sitting in the back of a taxi kindly arranged by New Hotel, we realise en route from the airport that we know absolutely nothing about Athens. With blue skies above and beautiful ruins and terracotta rooftops below, as we wind our way into the city we dredge our minds for stereotypes… The Olympics! Some amazing gods and goddesses! All that Greek mythology and its togas. (‘How will the bed sheets measure up?’ wonders Mr Smith.) Plate smashing, meze, feta, kalamata, calamari, kebabs... Oh and a guy called Dimitrius that Mr Smith went to school with. That’s it: how embarrassing. Lastminute, unpl

Dining information

Restaurant:

Contemporary and cool New Taste serves seasonal food in a sleek setting: round wooden tables, hanging gold lampshades and artfully mismatched chairs. The emphasis is on fresh, good quality and often organic ingredients. The Mediterranean cuisine includes dishes such as wild sea-bass, artichoke and herb risotto, and a trio of mini burgers (a classic, one with a sweet-chilli relish, and another with gorgonzola and tomato chutney. There’s an on-site bakery, so expect oven-fresh pastries and bread, displayed in abundance on tiered shelves.
