Destination Athens Greece hotel suggestions basic information and travel assistance

Enjoy Both Ancient Attractions & Modern Temptations
The Acropolis, centered around the imposing Parthenon, is one of Athens’ top sites, literally, as the ruins perch 500 feet above the city. For more views, take a hike (or a funicular) up Mt. Lycabettus to see the sunset from its 745-foot summit. You’ll find plenty of tavernas and touristy shops in Plaka, but for high-end boutiques, bars and restaurants, head to Kolonaki. After dark, the nightlife heats up in Karitsi Square, Psirri and Panormou.

other recommended Athens Hotels

NJV Athens Plaza
Syntagma Square
There’s a standard aesthetic among Greek luxury hotels. As you may know, it involves a lot of white and a lot of marble, stately columns, heavy drapery, perhaps some statuary. NJV Athens Plaza, located around the corner from the Acropolis at an enviable address on Syntagma Square, falls right into line. It won’t seduce you with cutting-edge style or old-world glamour. This isn’t a hotel that’s reinventing the wheel. The NJV Athens Plaza, sturdy and classic, has been welcoming travelers for more than three decades. They follow a formula that works, and the hotel remains an extremely comfortable and convenient place to stay.
