Moxy Athens City, Athens, Greece
Opened in the spring of 2022, this funky 201-room hotel from the Marriott stable is situated in an up-and-coming neighbourhood in the city centre. Housed in a building known as the historic Saroglion Megaron, where the city courts of Athens once stood, its interior has been injected with modernity and bold colours everywhere. It has been awarded the LEED Gold certification (green building rating system) and is the first eco-friendly hotel in Greece receiving this distinction. Just a short distance from the touristic centre, Plaka and the Acropolis, and a minute's walk from the metro, it has a fitness centre, bar and lounge areas with a small business centre, terrace and 24-hour front desk. There's a 24/7 'grab and go' help yourself culture here, such as the buffet breakfast and vending machines for drinks and snacks. However, a fast food menu is available for full meals too.
Close to the touristic centre (less than ten minutes' walk), yet in a lesser-known neighbourhood that gives an insight into the 'real' Athens.
Located in the centre of this historical city, you're minutes away from iconic landmarks including the Acropolis, Areopagus Hill and Temple of Olympian Zeus.
By plane: direct flights to Athens take less than 4 hours from London and Manchester. It's less than a 45-minute drive to the hotel. Parking costs €36 per day. skyscanner.net
