Secret Athens: The Most Fabulous Boutique Hotels You've Never Heard Of.

Athens is known for the obvious, good food, great museums and (of course) The Acropolis. What most people don't know is that there are some really interesting hotels cropping up, that are hipster cool and wallet friendly.
These are some of my favorites.

Magna Grecia Boutique Hotel

54 Mitropoleos, Athens 10563, Greece

I loved this place!
It was formerly a mansion that has been converted into a boutique hotel.
It only has 8 rooms and my family and friends had the whole place so that made it even better!
There is a rooftop garden that has a perfect view of the Acropolis.
The location is great 2 minute walk to Plaka and very safe.
Highly Reccomend!

Fresh Hotel

26 Sofokleous & Kleistenous Street, Athens 10552, Greece

I loved this hotel and the service is unbelievable!
The hotel has a rooftop pool as well as a bar that has a fabulous View of the Acropolis.
If you love modern and clean lines you will love it.

Athens Diamond Plus

24 Voulis and Mitropoleos, Athens 10563, Greece

This is one of the best boutique hotels I have ever stayed at.
Very small and quaint the rooms are medium sized and have great touches like oversized mirrors and chandeliers.
I love that it is so small that the staff knows who you are and that it is one block away from the main shopping area of Ermou and 1 block away from Plaka and the Acropolis.

BEST WESTERN Acropolis Ami Boutique Hotel

Iras 10, Athens 117 43, Greece

This hotel is in a good location about a 10 minute walk from major attractions. It is really nice that it is a bit off the beaten track so restaurants are more local and authentic. The rooms are basic, large, clean and have WiFi. The rooftop bar is a reason to come here. Recently renovated it is hipster cool and a bit hidden. Head on up there at around 4pm and take your seat for one of the best sunset bars in the city.

Periscope Hotel

22 Haritos str., Kolonaki, Athens 10675, Greece

I really liked this very stark, very modern hotel.
It is in the trendiest part of Athens in Kolonaki an area frequented by Fashionistas and The Euro Trash crowd.
I love everything about the hotel...
The vibe is that of a W Hotel and the people watching is unrivaled!
The room amenities include Korres Products and every imaginable comfort.
I cant wait to go back!!

The Margi

11 Litous Street, Vouliagmeni 16671, Greece

One of my favorite hotels in the most scenic suburb of Athens. Vouliagmeni was the site of the 2004 Summer Olympic Games. The area the hotel is in is surrounded by both a lake and the sea. On a peninsula, the hotel enjoys spectacular views, the freshest seafood and a great nightlife. The Margi is sexy, hipster, cool. The staff is young attentive and the rooms, sleek and modern.

Semiramis

48 Charilaou Trikoupi Str., Kifisia, Athens 14562, Greece

When I first drove up to this hotel I was a little startled.
It was all neon lights with different colors on each floor.
It was a little harsh and I was wondering why everyone had reccomended it.
It only took me about 5 minutes to realize the hotel has a unique atmosphere.
I loved it!!!
It is modern but not so modern that it has no warmth.
The service is impeccable in every way!
The bar is very trendy with beautiful people everywhere.
Next door is a very happening Middle Eastern Restaurant/Hookah Bar called Nargile that I couldnt get enough of!
I will say that it is not located in Athens but rather a suburb called Kifissia that is beautiful but there will be no ruins nearby to see.
That being said the area is one of the most beautiful with coffee houses and some of the best shopping in or out of Athens.

Alice Inn Athens

Tsatsou 9, Athens 10558, Greece

You can book a suite or a whole house. The point is this is as 'Hipster' as Athens has. The suites with names like the 'Anthony Quinn Suite' and the 'Betty Boop Suite' they are chic, well appointed and the service is extremely personal. These suites will satisfy even the most discriminating traveler.

Acropolis Museum Boutique Hotel

48 Syngrou Avenue Plaka, Athens 11742, Greece

This hotel is a hidden gem! It almost feels a little bit 'camp' but that's just part of the charm. The location is very close to the main historical sights and right next to the New Acropolis Museum ( not to be missed.) It is a cross between a three and four star hotel, in theory. I gave it a 4* rating because the staff is one of the best I have encountered. Excellent location and really reasonable prices make this a great find.

King George A Luxury Collection Hotel

3 Vasileos Georgiou A' St. | Syntagma Square, Athens 10564, Greece

THE LOCATION OF THIS HOTEL AND THE AMAZING SERVICE MAKE THIS A ONCE IN A LIFETIME EXPERIENCE.
I had a superior room reserved and because the hotel wasnt full and I struck up a conversation with the Front Desk Clerk he upgraded me to a suite.
This was one of the best stays I have ever experienced!
The room was so comfortable and beautiful.
I later contacted the manager who graciously agreed to show me the Penthouse Suite.
It was large enough for 100 of your closest friends with a view of the Acropolis that looked like a postcard.
It you appreciate great service and a hotel that is almost a boutique hotel but with every possible amenity then this hotel would make you smile.

A for Athens

Miaouli 2 - 4, Athens 10554, Greece

This is an interesting place because it is a hotel but set up like apartments.
Very clean and modern with an amazing staff.
The location though is the best thing about this hotel.
It is on a side street right off of Monastiraki Sq and faces the Acropolis.
The metro is 100 yards away from the entrance.
It also has the distinction of having the Best Bar in Athens.
It is a rooftop bar that faces the ruins and is spectacular!
The drinks are good but the people watching is even better!

The Zillers

54 Mitropoleos, Athens, Greece

This is a newly opened hotel with a fabulous rooftop cafe that has one of the best views of the Acropolis in the city! Hipsters will love the vibe for afternoon coffee or for evening cocktails and the rooms are amazing!
