The contemporary AthensWas is an ideal way for discovering the authentic parts of Athens. The hotel is located in the oldest district of the Greek capital, Plaka, known for its maze-like roads and neoclassical architecture. The hotel itself adheres to the city’s architectural traditions, relying heavily on marble flooring and polished walnut.
With 156 rooms ranging from a typical sized classic to a three bedroom top floor apartment, the hotel is able to accommodate both solo travellers and large families. The assorted tones of wood used in the rooms give a warm, restful feel. Each room has a veranda with views of the Acropolis or the wide pedestrian walkway of Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. The bathrooms are luxurious, again taking advantage of light and dark grey Greek marble.
Dinner at the rooftop restaurant and bar reminds you of how special the location is, with the ancient citadel at the Acropolis defying the orange sunset. Breakfast is replenishing, sourcing good quality local produce, and served till late morning. AthensWas has all of the fundamentals of a great hotel, but the real attraction is the locality for sightseeing and the extraordinary views.
