This building is a complete departure from hotel convention. Start by observing it from the outside. The lines of its balconies evoke thoughts of a home more than a hotel. The entrance to the lobby is a wall of glass, like a showcase.
You enter a world of design that the master builders of the Parthenon would surely have been proud of. The tone is set with walnut panels and furniture, marble, and furnishings by Le Corbusier, Ettore Sottsass and Konstantin Grcic. The rooms continue this modernist style and pay tribute to the founding fathers, with photographs of the illustrious masterpieces in the Athens National Archaeological Museum displayed on the walls. The two "Hellenic suites" can accommodate up to five people and offer a panoramic view over the Parthenon and the Greek capital.
As for the marble terrace, it is so close to the Acropolis that you feel as though you are having a friendly discussion with the gods while having your breakfast.
