It doesn’t get much hotter than Athens in summer, so the option of leaping into Fresh Hotel's cool rooftop pool after all that sight-seeing is an incredibly welcome one indeed. The views from the terrace are pretty spectacular too, looking out over the city and on to the Acropolis.
As the name suggests, décor is crisp and functional, with plenty of white and the odd pop of colour throughout. Add to that the charming service and you've got yourself a great little city break.
A breakfast buffet is served each morning at the Magenta Restaurant on the 1st floor and is included in most room rates (check detail below). The Air Lounge Bar & Restaurant up on the 9th floor serves delicious Greek and Mediterranean dishes throughout the day and into the evening.
Rooms are sleek and minimalist, mostly white with the odd bright splash of colour. Whilst some can come up quite small, the space is well used but, if this is a worry, upgrade for a little extra room to stretch out.
The rooftop swimming pool is a great place to wind down after your day (open in the summer months), or else head to the sauna and steam room for a bit of r&r. If you're not too worn out from a day's exploring, there is even a gym, or bikes can be hired through the hotel if you fancy seeing Athens under your own steam.
The hotel is located in the heart of Athens, so you’re well placed to explore at this Chic Retreat. Many of the city's sights are within walking distance; the Plaka and Psiri areas are both less than a 10-minute walk away, while the Acropolis closer to 20-minutes. If you want to explore further afield, there is plenty of public transport nearby too.
