Located in an unrivaled location—Syntagma Square, a stone’s throw away from Plaka, the historic center, and the iconic Acropolis—Athens Capital is an understated luxury experience that’s easily found on a map, but hard to match up to. Though rather unimpressive from the outside, a sense of comfort is immediately conveyed upon entering its common spaces. Vibrant yet imbued with a sense of timeless elegance, the hotel delivers a dose of high design while still keeping its cultural roots in tow. Its interiors reach for a level of finesse in which the modern and the traditional coexist in balance. Throughout, noble materials and Greek symbols and patterns take on a contemporary dimension, creating spellbinding settings that are simultaneously sumptuous and intimate. With smooth textures, soft curves, and gold accents, meticulous attention to detail is found at every turn. And so is its art. In an effort to blend creativity and business, contemporary artworks are scattered throughout the hotel, with pieces by recognized and emerging Greek artists on display in the lobby as well as in the rooms.
Featuring a neutral color palette, highlighted by Grecian marble and pops of vibrant blue, the 117 soulful bedrooms—18 of which are suites—are just as striking. Conceived as spacious minimal cocoons, each is equipped with state-of-the-art amenities for maximum comfort and efficiency. From a sitting area to exclusive bathroom and kitchen amenities, up to the windows’ unmatched views, the rooms are not only tastefully appointed, but also carefully layered and thoroughly reimagined. Courtesy of dark wood surfaces, premium linen, and plenty of natural light, a warm and calming atmosphere is found at all times of the day, ensuring a restful stay and quiet nights, even for the more demanding guests.
