Situated within safe tourist areas close to local transport links, our Athens hotels are the perfect springboard from which to explore the city.
First inhabited in the Neolithic Period, the world famous Acropolis is the perfect place to begin your sightseeing, followed by the Poseidon Temple with its evidence of human use from prehistory. Athens is full of such archaeological treasures, and we also recommend visiting the Herodeion Amphitheatre from one of our hotels. Built in AD 160, it's used as an outdoor theatre in summer.
To step out of one of our hotels and go shopping is a unique experience in Athens. The city is largely clear of big department and chain stores. Family run shops sell souvenirs, clothing and accessories from the main street of Ermou. For upmarket shopping, visit the Kolonaki district, full of designer boutiques from Italian and Greek designers.
All our hotels in Athens serve a hearty breakfast, but if you want to eat out at lunchtime or in the evening there are plenty of great choices. Most restaurants serve delicious traditional food, such as the appetiser taramosalata, nicely followed by grilled fish or meat and some delicious sweet baklava.
