The Periscope Hotel Athens is the perfect place to stay during a city trip in Greece. It has a modern & urban style to relax while being close to the best sightseeing spots!


Located in Kolonaki the Periscope Hotel Athens is surrounded by a hip & young neighborhood. The best Shopping places, Restaurants, Bars & Cafes are located within a walking distance of only a few minutes.
Even the famous Acropolis is not far: around 15-20 mins to walk or a few minutes via taxi. From the rooftop of the hotel you can see the most famous site in Athens which looks especially impressive during sunset.


The Periscope Hotel is member of the Design Hotels & YES! Hotels Group: A very modern & fresh hotel group with a passion for art. Every hotel is designed in a very unique way: Like the NEW Hotel which has a vintage vibe or the urban Periscope Hotel we stayed at.

The 22 Rooms and Suites have been completely renovated in summer 2018 and offer a stylish design which reminded us of a big city loft.

The Lobby is called the “Periscope Lounge” and is a great place for a meeting or simply to relax. Throughout the whole day you can grab some free snacks, soft drinks or coffee at the bar which is such a great invention!

This Suite is the biggest one of the Periscope Hotel Athens and has a size of 50 sqm with a living room, huge bed and spacious bathroom. Everything is concepted open which makes the room look even bigger.

Through a sliding door of the huge glass facade you can step outside to your balcony where a staircase will lead you up to the best part of the Penthouse:
Right on the roof of your suite you find a private jacuzzi with a relaxing area to enjoy the wonderful view over the roofs of Athens. You can even spot the famous Akropolis from up here.

All rooms of the Periscope Hotel are designed in the same stylish way like the Penthouse Suite with unique photography art pieces from Athens and modern room features.

The Breakfast

The breakfast usually gets served as a buffet in the Periscope Lounge. Due to many new restrictions in times of COVID-19 they decided to collaborate with the amazing brunch cafe “Queen Bee”. It’s located just around the corner of the hotel and takes you around 2-3 minutes to walk. In the cafe you can choose from the rich breakfast menu: My favorites have been the avocado toast with poached eggs or the amazing homemade pastries.

Another highlight in Athens: The NEW Hotel

If you are looking for an amazing place to enjoy some cocktails or amazing food not far from the Periscope Hotel, I can highly recommend you the NEW Hotel. It’s another Design Hotel of the YES! Hotel Group. The interior has a special charm with retro elements combined with modern art while the huge roof terrace offers an amazing view over the city and to the Akropolis.

The Periscope Hotel Athens impressed us by the unique modern but still cozy design and by the friendly staff. We felt very welcome from the very beginning we checked in until we had to leave Athens again !

It is such a great city hotel in the heart of Athens which will be the perfect place to come back after a sightseeing tour or business meeting!
