Breath of Fresh Air

There’s no need to choose be­tween the best of Greek views and con­vivial Athens night life — this ho­tel de­liv­ers both.

if you like your pool­side loung­ing with a side of view, Fresh Ho­tel’s rooftop is the Greek oa­sis you’ve been look­ing for. Si­t­u­ated in cen­tral Athens, it’s an easy walk to the Acrop­o­lis and the Plaka restau­rant district, and handy for metro sta­tions as well. The pool deck (and ad­ja­cent bar and restau­rant) on the ninth floor has views across to the Parthenon. The pri­vately owned Fresh Ho­tel has been part of the De­sign Ho­tel group since it opened in 2004, when a com­plete re­vamp trans­formed it from a clas­sic 1970s tourist ho­tel into a stylish city pad that wel­comes reg­u­lar guests back year af­ter year. Stan­dard rooms are both com­fort­able and well-equipped, while the suites on the up­per floors are per­fect for a longer stay and can be joined to cre­ate a fam­ily suite. Don’t miss the ex­ten­sive break­fast buf­fet — you can walk it off on the climb up to the Acrop­o­lis. An evening drink at the bar, which in sum­mer months is open on all sides, is a great way to end a day of dis­cov­er­ies. www.fresh­ho­tel.gr.
