Enjoy the beautiful cityscape of Athens from a hotel that offers perfect views and even a rooftop swimming pool, so you can escape the heat of the sun while gazing out across the vast Greek capital. Located in the heart of the city, and within a short distance from such sights as Syntagma Square, the National Archaeological Museum and, of course, the Acropolis, the Novotel Athens is an elegant and modern hotel, where guests can enjoy complete relaxation after a full day of traversing the bustling streets that crisscross the heart of the city. Each of the spacious and elegant rooms have been decorated in mild tones with comfy décor and amenities, and guests can unwind on the king sized bed in front of the 26’’ LCD TV, when not enjoying a swim in the pool, a workout in the in-house fitness centre or hanging out in one of the two restaurants or two bars. Serving refreshing cocktails and delicious international cuisine, each of these let you enjoy unrivalled views of the Acropolis and Lycabettus Hill that both tower majestically over this enchanting city.
Continuously inhabited for over 7,000 years, Athens is one of the oldest capitals in the world and is often referred to as the cradle of Western civilisation and democracy.
From the instantly recognisable Acropolis, Athens stretches its urban limbs in all directions, and even when gazing out across the city from the fortified hilltop on a clear day, it can be difficult to spot where exactly the city ends. Visit the Acropolis in the morning, when the tourist crowds are less sizeable and a fresh breeze from the sea blows gently over the ruins of the Parthenon temple.
After this, stroll down again to the quaint areas of Plaka and Syntagma. Among romantic coloured houses, you’ll find pedestrianised streets that abound with souvenir shops and cafés. In among the narrow streets, there are plenty of places where you can pick up great local produce like honey, olives and wine. Wander around the Syntagma Square, and catch the changing of the guards in front of the Greek Parliament, before escaping the baking midday sun by visiting a cosy taverna or restaurant for some delicious local food.
