The New Hotel takes inspiration from the classic Athens style and completely refashions it for the modern day, creating an innovative and imaginative hotel which will completely change how you look at Greek interiors. Interior design brothers Humberto and Fernando Campana, are known for their ability to create masterpieces from cast-offs and reclaimed material. They have brought this known and celebrated aesthetic to the 79 rooms of New Hotel, ingeniously creating a hotel the likes of which you will not find anywhere else. New Hotel is an excellent place to stay for a bustling, non-stop city break, ideally located so you will experience the best the city has to offer with ease.
Just a half hour drive from Athens International Airport, the New Hotel is right in the heart of the city, surrounded by all the action both ancient and modern. You will not be able to escape the extraordinary atmosphere of this city, with the resort being the perfect gateway to enjoy all the surroundings have to offer. You will be spoiled for choice of what to fill your days with from the cultural museums, galleries and walks interspersed with delicious, authentic street food and plenty of energetic bars and restaurants for the evening.
Underneath the Campana brothers’ creative and adventurous eye the rooms have been transformed into pieces of art, each following three carefully chosen themes celebrating Athens. Whether it’s the ‘evil eye’ bead guarding against any bad omens befalling your vacation, the Greek folklore characters of Karagiozis galloping and running around the room, or the historic mailcards showing a snap shot into ancient Athens, each room is perfectly designed. Alongside these remarkable art pieces are the comforts which make any successful hotel bedroom including a huge comforting bed, a luxurious bathroom and double glazed French doors leading you onto the balcony.
