The opening of the New Hotel Athens marks the first hotel project for award-winning designer-duo, the Campana brothers.
Humberto and Fernando Campana, known for their Brazilian carnival-themed designs for everything from furniture to shoes, took inspiration from traditional Greek themes: Karagiozis, a shadow puppet; the “evil eye” used to guard against ill-omen; and the Athens of years gone by.
With the help of students from University of Thessaly, the Campana brothers wove these themes into the 79 rooms and public spaces of the hotel. Keeping some of the original features of the building, such as the black marble staircase, they have also integrated their handmade chairs and lamps design, alongside floor-to-ceiling windows and solid brass washbasins.
Housed in the former Olympic Palace Hotel near Syntagma Square in the heart of Athens, originally built in 1958 by Iasonas Rizos, the modernist architecture of the outside is matched by a blend of art, sculpture and design on the inside. The hotel follows the characteristic colourful, modern and innovative traits of Yes! Hotels.
When it comes to dining options, guests can enjoy “New Taste”, the Mediterranean restaurant inspired by the Campanas’ iconic Favela chair. The restaurant serves traditional breads and pastries baked daily, as well as market style fresh salads, grills and Greek specialities.
The penthouse suite, executive floors and lounge, will be unveiled later this year.
Rates start from 160 Euros (approx £140) per Double Room, per night, including breakfast. To book call 00 301 210 327 3200 or visit www.yes.hotels.gr
