This slick, new member of Design Hotels is found in the historic heart of Athens, a stone’s throw from all the sites and with a killer, up-close view of the Acropolis from its restaurant. If you’re a stickler for location, then this is a great temporary address. The property’s contemporary rooms are furnished in earthly tones, Greek marble and local walnut wood – a nod to the palaces of the past, albeit with a 21st century update.
