Our favorite Athens boutique hotels, from A77 to The Dolli

For many, Athens is the place to go in Greece for the first time. This city allows travelers to sample much of what makes Greece so amazing, whether it’s the gorgeous beaches of the Athenian Riviera, historical marvels like the Acropolis or the city’s many restaurants and tavernas — which are traditional Greek pubs — and cafés. 

Similarly, the best of Athens’ boutique hotels represent the city’s diverse character. Here are a few of our favorites.

1. A77 Suites by Andronis: an intimate hotel in a historic Athenian neighborhood

You’ll find A77 Suites hidden behind an upscale clothing store in Plaka, Athens’ oldest neighborhood. This small Athens boutique hotel has a delightfully romantic vibe, partially due to its limited capacity, but mostly due to its stunning 18th-century origin. 

Each room offers a view of the Acropolis, while the hotel itself couldn’t be found in a better location for exploring the city. Fun fact: eagle-eyed travelers may be able to spot A77 Suites from the Parthenon

2. AthensWas: a luxe boutique hotel in Athens’ coolest neighborhood

Also found in the heart of Plaka, AthensWas is a stylish hotel offering supreme access to many of the city’s coolest ruins and attractions. The hotel boasts luxurious rooms, excellent concierge service and a rooftop restaurant, Sense, where travelers can indulge in fine Greek cuisine while enjoying the panorama of Athens.

4. King George, A Luxury Collection Hotel: an Old World hotel with a contemporary twist

Technically, King George is more of a boutique-style hotel — but this elegant Old-World hotel is still one of the best places to stay in Greece

King George has about 100 rooms and a much more traditional vibe than the newer hotels listed above. However, the design of King George is still more modern than its famous sister property, the Hotel Grande Bretagne (one of the best hotels in Greece). Both offer a fantastic experience, but Fora Advisors who’ve stayed at both hotels tend to prefer King George’s private, more intimate setting. 

Guests can also rent the entire penthouse floor for celebrations of up to 40 people.

Fora Perks at King George:

  • $100 food / beverage credit.

  • Breakfast daily.

  • Upgrade & extended check-in/out whenever possible.

Fora Perks at Hotel Grande Bretagne:

  • Complimentary lunch.

  • Breakfast daily.

  • Upgrade & extended check-in/out whenever possible.

5. Perianth Hotel: a sophisticated Athens boutique hotel in the heart of the city

Perianth Hotel is a sophisticated option in the heart of Athens. The design is bold and unique, offering a sharp departure from traditional options like Hotel Grande Bretagne, or quaint options like A77 Suites.

Guests can enjoy contemporary Greek cuisine at the on-site restaurant, relax in the chic lounge area or take in the panoramic city views from the rooftop terrace. Overall, Perianth Hotel is a great choice for travelers seeking an upscale boutique hotel in Athens.

With its striking mid-century modern aesthetic and attention to detail, The Modernist offers an artistic retreat for travelers who desire refined and contemporary accommodations. Nearby, you’ll find tons of upscale boutiques, trendy fine dining and laid-back nightlife venues.

Fora Perks at The Modernist Athens:

  • Welcome amenity.

7. The Dolli: a brand-new luxe hotel near Monastiraki Square

One of the newest luxury hotels in Athens and a true Fora favorite, The Dolli was originally designed by Andreas Kriezis, a famous Greek architect who also oversaw the conversion of the Athenian Royal Palace to what’s now the Greek Parliament Building, 

And while The Dolli bends the rules of what counts as a boutique hotel, the design is decidedly chic. Connect with Fora to plan and book your ultra-stylish Greece getaway today.

8. Gatsby Athens: perhaps the most decadent Athens boutique hotel

First built in the 1930s at the height of the Art Deco era, the Gatsby Athens allows guests to experience the allure of an elegant, bygone era. From lavish rooms to the glamorous corridors and amenities, Gatsby Athens offers sophistication with a touch of opulence that would even have the residents of East Egg voicing approval.
