Concierge.com's insider take:

With no views to speak of, and rooms about as large as you'd expect to find aboard a submarine (in both cases, the penthouse suite excepted), this contemporary design hotel may be more suited for solitary business travelers than couples on vacation. But if you want to explore upscale Athens, much of it found among the designer boutiques, higher-priced galleries, and trendy clubs and restaurants of the Kolonaki district, it would be hard to find a better location to base yourself, or a more hip address. The 22-room urban retreat gets extra points for its creative approach to overcoming its limitations. In place of balcony views, there is a rooftop periscope, operated from the street-level bar, that allows you to explore the Athens cityscape, as you can also do while lying in bed because there's an aerial photograph affixed to the ceiling of each room. Or for those times when a view is just what you don't want, roll down the remote-control blinds, scoop up a handful of the bedside chocolate-covered sunflower seeds, and settle in with a loaned DVD.
