This is your home away from home – perfectly located for easy walking to all the major tourist spots and every hidden gem you come across in between. The rooms are spacious and fresh with unique designs and everything you could possibly need during your stay. The food is the most delicious you’ll have in Athens using top quality produce and great chefs. All the staff throughout the hotel, restaurant and spa are warm, friendly, welcoming and dedicated to making your time with them as memorable as it can be. In current times, this hotel also provides a great option if you want to change your working from home office space – with great facilities and the backdrop of the Acropolis you won’t be any happier working anywhere else. I can’t wait to return – could not recommend the hotel and staff more highly!
Dip a perfectly-seasoned fry into the ketchup at Muse Bistro and you know you’re onto a winner. It’s spiked with cardamom and cloves – and along with almost everything at this newly-minted hotel eaterie, set inside a revamped 1930s bank building, it’s made in-house. There’s fragrant peinirli with 24-hour matured dough; snack attack goodies like popcorn with bacon or graviera; home-roasted nuts with paprika and thyme that pair perfectly with their sassy cocktails (carrot Margarita, anyone?).
Chef Themis Mantziris’ menu plays on that same effortless sophistication and delivers Mediterranean staples with French finesse. The fatoush salad zings with herby, lemony loveliness. Try the ouzo-drenched orzo with shrimps or the moussaka ravioli, a lighter, refined expression of the Greek standard. Right down to the desserts, the seductively named kuneifi, promises crunch and gooey goodness with every biteful.
