A member of Yes! Hotels Group, New Hotel opened its doors in July 2011. The philosophy of the hotel group – Young, Enthusiastic and Seductive – has been fully adopted. New hotel is located in the heart of Athens within a walking distance from the city’s main attractions.
The house with 79 rooms and suites is one of the city’s finest examples of modern architecture. The interiors are simply outstanding. The unusual custom-made furniture and handmade fixtures give guests the feeling that they are in a major art installation. An entirely new approach with energetic hospitality and seductive customer-centered services. New Hotel is the first ever hotel project of award-winning designer duo, Fernando and Humberto Campana, who were commissioned with this project due to their eco-friendly ethos, their love for contemporary materials and their attention to local culture.
Campana’s influence extends also to the New Taste restaurant. It is located on the ground floor, equipped with the iconic Favela Chair, with columns covered in long narrow strips of wood, reminiscent of the favelas in Brazil, and pieces of furniture from the old Olympic hotel. The all-day restaurant serves a menu with simple dishes from the Mediterranean, prepared with the finest and freshest products – a popular place for guests and Athenians alike. On the 7th floor of the hotel, the Art Lounge, extraordinary dishes and cocktails are served, rounded off by a panoramic view of Athens. New Sense is the Fitness and Wellness Club, a hidden jewel in the heart of bustling Athens.
