Offering an entirely NEW approach this 79-room and suites establishment, is one of the city’s finest examples of modernist architecture and the first ever hotel project of award designer duo, Fernando and Humberto Campana. The Penthouse Suite is designed to perfection, encapsulating the Campana aesthetic in all its 70 square meters whilst the large terrace, appears to be embracing the city below, affording 360° views of all the historical landmarks, including the Acropolis, Lycabettus Hill, Syntagma Square and the House of Parliament.
The hotel was shaped by renowned design duo the Campana brothers, in collaboration with architecture students from the local university of Thessaly, and the play between the old and the new was central to the renovation project.
This was the first hotel project by the Campanas and the team focused on using the property’s original features, ‘upcycling’ abandoned furniture into something more seductive, more modern and more daring. Using neglected fixtures and furnishings from the previous hotel, the team reworked them into modern pieces, transforming the old and derelict into the contemporary and luxurious.
Situated in the former Olympic Palace Hotel, New Hotel encompasses the heritage of its past by using recycled parts of the old hotel and reinterpreted local materials to create a complete work of art, where outstanding interiors, unusual custom-made furniture and handmade fixtures make guests feel that they live and breathe in a major art installation.
NEW Art Lounge, hotel’s rooftop lounge with a panoramic Athens view, designed to be the ultimate penthouse, features a unique library with more than 2000 books all of them related to contemporary Art featuring works from local and international artists. The comfort and scenery of the space is reason enough to visit.
Located on Filellinon Street, next to Constitution Square (Syntagma Square), this contemporary design hotel, is perfectly positioned for the sights of Athens, including the ruins of Plaka, the Acropolis and its museum, the stylish boutique shopping district of Kolonaki, and the bustling business zone. Both leisure and business travelers will enjoy this enviable NEW hotel, right at the centre of Athens.
