Thank you for choosing Periscope Hotel during your recent visit to Athens! We are delighted that you enjoyed our newly renovated lounge and the all day -after breakfast- buffet. Our snacks and local delicacies are prepared daily by our pastry chefs, in order to to provide our guests with fresh sweet and salty bites. On behalf of our team we thank you and we would love to welcome you back on your next visit in Athens.
we were only staying in athens for a couple of nights before going on to the islands; i chose this hotel because it's affiliated with starwood. that's it -- had no idea what to expect.
we *loved* the area. great shops, restaurants, etc., and everything seemed to stay open pretty late. the hotel isn't far from some key sight-seeing areas, as long as you're comfortable with a bit of a walk - maybe 20 minutes or so.
while our room wasn't anything special, the lobby/breakfast/snack area was a nice touch! we grabbed a few snacks and water when we checked in and took them up to our room -- very nice to have. breakfast was nice each morning; though, if you're expecting a western (read: heavier) breakfast, even the cooked food is on the lighter side. but the yogurt/fruit/granola was great!
one note on the room -- it was perfectly fine. clean and serviceable; perfect for a home base when you're out most of the day. and the staff was very friendly/helpful.
if you happen to get up early and want a nice little hike, head straight up the mountain. at the top, there's a lovely chapel and lookout onto the city and acropolis. if you time it right and get there around 8am, you can see soldiers raising the greek flag.
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your detailed review. We are very glad that our affiliation with Starwood brought to us such extinguished guests, as you.
It is our purpose to make all of our guests feel like home, providing them with healthy and hearty breakfast, all day buffet services and of course accommodating them in modern and functional rooms.
It is also great to know that you appreciated our location at Kolonaki area (one of the most upscale in Athens) and its surroundings, like Lycabettus hill.
We will share your kind words with the rest of our team and we will be happy to accommodate you again in the near future!
I have been in Athens for 2 working days and I found Periscope hotel, few minutes by walk from the city centre, everything went very well and everything was perfect
Breakfast included and great clients service.
Dear Mr Luca M,
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your kind review. We are very pleased to know that our location and accommodation services met your expectations.
We really hope to have the chance to welcome you again in the future.
For our honeymoon in Athens we stayed at Periscope and we’re immediately greeted by the sweet lady at the front desk. The hotel has a full breakfast available in the morning from 7 to 10:30 am, and then snacks and complementary soft drinks throughout the rest of the day. Traveling makes me constantly hungry, so this was perfect for grazing during our stay. Our room was a tad on the small side, but it was very clean and served its purpose. The hotel was quite and located in a nice/safe neighborhood. Though it is a little farther from sight seeing, we liked that we felt safe and taken care of by staff. We highly recommend the staff and hotel to anyone passing through Athens looking for a fair priced hotel!

This is a city hotel in a GREAT neighborhood. The staff was great - helpful, good advise, and knew the city very well. The hotel rooms are not large but are modern and comfortable. Breakfast is included and the food was GREAT with tons of choices!!! So, we ate a large breakfast and then hit the road to go see the sites. We ended up coming back in the middle of the afternoon and there was a whole spread of food and drinks for us to recharge. Loved the hotel and would go back. Thanks for an awesome experience!!

Really enjoyed our 4 nights stay there; small boutique hotel walking distance to most tourist locations with lots of great restaurants in close proximity. Found it an excellent hotel with outstanding, very friendly and personable staff starting with the Manager (Georgia) to the front desk (the two Dimitris,Stephania) and breakfast staff (Panayotis, Natalia). THANKS TO YOU ALL. Great breakfast and free snacks/drinks available throughout the day. Highly recommended. Will definitely come back when we return to Athens. Shiraz, Calgary, Canada
