Get your dose of Greece's ancient culture while enjoying cutting-edge design with a luxe five-star stay at NEW Hotel in Athens. This avant-garde boutique hotel might be housed in a 1950s building, but the interior showcases modern, forward-thinking touches from celebrated Brazilian designers Fernando and Humberto Campana. The lobby’s walls are adorned with vintage wood accents, the fine-dining NEW Taste restaurant proudly features an archway of reclaimed stair posts and floorboards, and each of the 79 rooms and suites is individually decorated to ensure a stay like no other.
Take time to peruse the onsite art gallery that hosts a collection of carefully curated pieces, visit the library (home to over 2,000 books), luxuriate at NEW Sense Spa and see Athens from above at the stylish rooftop Art Lounge, boasting Acropolis views. When you’re feeling ready to explore, the charms of Athens are just a short stroll from your lavish hotel room. Tick off the impressive Acropolis of Athens along with the Plaka district's endless cafés, tavernas and art galleries.
