Periscope Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The Periscope proved a very fortunate discovery and met my needs perfectly. The location in a quiet, interesting neighborhood within walking distance of major attractions and excellent restaurants is ideal. The room was very comfortable, clean, and quiet. A most helpful staff consistently provided service beyond what was required-- and did so with kindness and grace while adhering to a high standard of professionalism. I look forward to my next trip to Athens and the opportunity to stay again at Periscope Hotel.

Its situation in Kolonaki, a few steps from Parliament buildings, near a great park and surrounded with great restaurants make it an ideal place to stay in Athens. Very modern design rooms and reception with a gook breakfast.

stylish, modern, clean and in top area. Great breakfast buffet, all day snack and fruit buffet... loved it and would go again anytime! Can only recommend the hotel to anybody visiting Athens, being it on business or leasure.

This is a great hotel in the city centre of Athens and Kolonaki area. The rooms are very nice and modern with great facilities. The lobby area serves as an area to relax, have breakfast, coffee or a drink with great cosy couches and nice chairs. The staff are very friendly and helpful. They made our accommodation as homely as possible for our little baby girl. The hotel is situated in a quiet street so you can’t hear any noise and you can forget that you are in the middle of city and a very busy area with shops, bars, cafes and restaurants. The area is great to explore with plenty of options for shopping and going out while there are quite a few museums close by (walking distance) such as the Benaki museum. Would recommend it any time! Tip: if you have a car, this might be a bit of a problem as the Kolonaki area has parking restrictions for residents and non-residents and it is a busy area. There are couple of parkings walking distance from the hotel that the staff suggested. Tip: the hotel offers snacks and drinks 24/7 at the lounge area that you can enjoy anytime you want.

This hotel couldn't have been more perfectly located. If you are staying at Kolonaki and you want to explore the area and enjoy the nightlife this is the place to stay. Next to most famous spots to lunch and dine such as Zurbaran, Malconis, Capanna, Woowoo you can freely wear your high heels and walk only for 2 minutes to get there. We booked a junior suite which was spacious and modern with a long balcony. The only downside of this hotel is that there is no in room dining and the breakfast is poor. But guests are treated to an open honesty bar throughout the day with free drinks, coffee, tea and basic snacks.

The Periscope was exactly what I was looking for- small and personal, designed, clean and pleasant, located in a quiet chic neighborhood and thoughtful amenties for the price range: an all-day drink and snack buffet, complimentary New York Times, etc. The rooms were not big but very clean and had the most comfortable bed with soft sheets and wonderful plump pillows. The staff was friendly, especially Stefania who went out of her way to help us procure restaurant resevations on a busy Friday night. If I had any issue it was a small one - the fact that though they claim they have cable TV there were only a few Greek channels and not one international channel. I'd defeinitely stay there again.

the location is great, the service is excellent, the team is nice and professional, there is a 24/7 free bar- coffee, cold drinks, snacks, sandwiches, the design is impressive, the rooms are clean, and the atmosphere is great

Lovely place, great interior design, great location, kind staff. Definitely a yes! We loved the breakfast and the complimentary buffet which was available 24hrs a day! A variety of art books make the lobby exceptional!

Located in a super cool area with cozy little streets and great restaurants and cafes. Super friendly staff, great and healthy breakfast with good coffee! Cool atmosphere inside the lobby and restaurant. Highly recommend!

Very good Hotel with family atmosphere😙love it. Good breakfast, snacks during the day, friendly staff☺. Located in Koloniaki, nice area with good restaurants and bars. Parliament and old town very close.
