Although it’s located in the heart of Athens, you’ll barely notice once you step through innAthens’ hidden entrance into its lush, plant-filled atrium. This central courtyard serves as the social hub, and its where you’ll enjoy breakfast and other light bites throughout the day. The décor throughout is sleekly minimalist, with a touch of industrial style, although care has been taken to seamlessly incorporate the original features of the building, such as neoclassical-style doors and marbled balconies.
A calming oasis in the centre of the city, innAthens is perfect for those who want to explore the best that Athens has to offer.
Enjoy a traditional Greek breakfast in the leafy courtyard. Throughout the day, the hotel’s restaurant serves light bites and Greek specialities throughout the day.
For more substantial meals, look no further than the nearby Plaka area. Daphne’s is legendary, and very popular with the city’s cultural and poltical elite. For something a little bit more low-key, head to Bakaliarakia, the oldest tavern in Athens, which serves delicious home-cooked fare.
Each of the rooms have a minimalist décor, with character given by industrial accents and elements of the original construction, and give views over the peaceful atrium or the surrounding streets. The furnishings are luxurious, with bedlinen and pillows provided by Greek-based Coco-Mat. The elegant stone-lined bathrooms are furnished with showers.
The hotel is just a stone’s throw from Syntagma Square, home to the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior. Visit during the changing of the guard, an elaborate ritual involving the legendary Evzones in their distinctive uniforms. The nearby National Gardens make for a refreshing break from the traffic-clogged streets during the summer months, and are home to some picturesque archaeological remains.
Many of the city’s most recognisable landmarks are to be found in the area surrounding Syntagma, and all are easily reachable from innAthens. See the iconic splendour of the Acropolis, and be sure not to miss the stunning museum adjacent to the ruins. Alternatively, take a stroll to the ancient Agora, where some of the world’s first philosophical theories were formulated and taught. The First Cemetery, to the south of Syntagma, sits beside impressive ruins and features beautiful examples of 19th-century sculpture.
