A short walk from central Syntagma Square, the New Hotel, opened summer 2011, is part of art collector Dakis Joannou's stylish Yes! Hotels group, whose other properties include Periscope, Semiramis, Twenty One, and Kefalari Suites. The 1950s building (formerly the Olympic Palace Hotel) has been completely renovated by brothers Humberto and Fernando Campana, a Brazilian design team critically acclaimed for turning cast-off materials into works of art. Here, the cast-offs include many of the original fixtures and furnishings. Pieces of old wooden chairs, for instance, now form sculptures, and the bathroom mirrors are in jagged shapes post–wrecking ball. Greek architectural students added their own spin to the 79-room property by designing three unique looks for the guest rooms, focusing on Greek folklore, the amulet known as the evil eye, and old Athens as represented by collages of postcards. The effect, in a hotel with all the modern amenities, is less discordant than it might sound, and overall, it goes down as easily as the huge breakfast that's included in the price.—Bob Payne
