New Hotel, Athens



The New hotel (former Olympic Palace) is a contemporary hotel in Athens Plaka district, redesigned by Brazilian visionaries Humberto and Fernando Campana along with Greek Cypriot art collector Dakis Joannou. The overall ambience of the hotel is sophisticated and modern, with each element craftily reconfigured using salvaged elements: from the lifts to the reception desk to the chairs, side lamps and breakfast bar. The vibe of this 79-room establishment is young, energetic and seductive. 
The NEW Taste restaurant serves Mediterranean and International cuisine from high quality local fresh produce. Drinks are best enjoyed at the rooftop Lounge Bar with magnificent views of the City. The New Sense spa has a hammam, Jacuzzi and offers various lavish treatments for face and body.  The Hotel displays luxurious work of art with custom made furniture and home made artefacts. The rooms and suites allows guests to feel like they're a part of the vivid in-room installations. This theme even pervades the bathrooms, where blocky, sharp-edged washbasins based on the shape of diamonds reach into spaces normally left unused. Infact, every corner of the hotel has been used to perfection.  


The New Hotel is located in the city centre close to the Acropolis, Old Royal Palace and Syntagma Square.  Cafes, shops, boutiques and restaurants are just a walk away. The Athens International airport and the port of Piraeus are is about 35kms (40-50 minutes) away.
