An all-white aesthetic acts as a canvas for the modern artwork and graffiti by local artists.
This art-rich boutique hotel is a culture-lover’s dream. Gallery-white walls showcase unique artworks by up-and-coming creatives, while graffiti-splashed rooms designed by local street artists give an edgy twist to interiors. There’s even a rotating exhibition of works by different artists – Elena Galanopoulou and Teodosio Sectio Aurea among them.
Brimming with personality, rooms and suites are individually styled with quirky features – think all-white expanses broken up by bold pop art and playful sculptures (the neon-yellow pig is a standout). Pick a Superior Guestroom for statement wall murals and bespoke handcrafted furniture, or go all out with a Prestige Pallas Suite, designed like an artist’s studio with pop art from the hotel’s private collection. The art theme streams through to the restaurant, where wall-hung paintings and potted plants set the scene for vast breakfast buffets – head to the Cretan corner for traditional dakos and apaki – and Mediterranean dinners with a seafood focus.
Once you’ve had your fill of food and art, head out into Athens to discover the contemporary capital of music, culture, fine cuisine and haute couture, mixed with a rich history dating back 3000 years – the Acropolis is a must-visit for its magnificent temples and artefacts; be sure to head to the museum at the foot of the ancient citadel. You’re also just a short walk from the iconic landmarks of Monastiraki, from Hadrian’s Library to the Ancient Agora, along with its artisanal flea market and traditional tavernas.
