Picked the New Hotel for its location, fitness center, decor, and being part of the Marriott family. I stayed for 5 nights and was very happy with my stay. The location is excellent, the soundproofing between rooms is strong, the balcony and large windows are wonderful. I also appreciated the blackout shades so I could sleep late. Used the fitness center several times and it is clean. You can also easily run in the park across the street. Also nice to have refrigerator in room.
The staff were helpful and accommodating. Clean. Rooftop bar and restaurant is nice, although food rather pricey. The location near Syntagma Square and Kolonaki neighborhood was superb for my business meetings and then for exploring Plaka and historic sites. Will probably stay there again.
Staff was very professional and did everything they could to make our short stay a very pleasant one.
What we really like is that you definitely are staying in a cookie cutter room with “evil eye” lighting on the wall and very distinctive bathroom vanity, unlike any you are bound to see.
This is probably one of the most special Hotels I have stayed in. We had a fabulous stay from the beginning to the end. The staff was absolutely friendly and generous at all times. They helped us plan activities, always helped out when needed and never hesitated giving us a bright smile when seeing us in open spaces.
The rooftop has a spectacular view over Athens and is a great spot for evening cocktails. We went there every single night.
The breakfast was delicious and had more than enough selection.
All rooms have an own special theme which makes it exciting to find out about all the art objects and historic references in the different rooms.
I will be back for sure, not just to find out about the other rooms and stay in them but also to feel welcomed and accepted again in such an extraordinary way! Well done New Hotel.

Eco friendly hotel all natural resources around the hotel, perfect location to get round Athens and local attractions all within walking distancing. Staff very attentive, gifted with a welcome pack with a few different drinks and local beers which was a nice touch as the reusable bag has come in handy this week. Rooms are small as expected with a city break, views from rooms are not offered even at front desk for a fee, one side of hotel is the acropolis and the other side backstreet would of been nice to have the option.
Rooftop bar and pool with excellent views is definitely a plus point , drinks a little expensive 10-14€ for cocktails but the views and surroundings make up for that.
The hotel is very large and as you walk in you are wowed by a magnificent entrance with glass floor looking below, which has a view of the interior ponds underneath, filled with tropical fish and turtles. As you look up you will see a large expanse all the way to the roof of the building with a magnificent skylight. This is just the start of your welcome to the hotel!
The hotel is very eco friendly, no plastics here or waste. The rooms will either overlook the Acropolis or maybe some not as awe inspiring buildings on the other side but all rooms have balconies (if you can bare the heat). The rooms are very tastefully decorated and homely looking with a strong modern twist. The monsoon shower is delightful with fabulous Greek Zealots amenities. The bed is as expected, HEAVEN with very good quality linen.
Breakfast is healthy and plentiful. You will need to book your breakfast time so queues can be avoided for obvious reasons, and even when you are ready to enter the buffet area you might queue at peak times. Selection of breads, hams, cheeses, fruits, yogurts….all the things you would expect. I loved the protein bars and fresh fruit pots.
Toast will be brought to your table once you select the bread, eggs are to be ordered as you like (poached eggs always came to perfection) teas/coffees/iced coffees again all ordered at your table. Fresh orange juice and water is served throughout but the orange juice always came in a tiny glass and I needed to order a double!
The hotel is unique and modern with a touch of eco friendly materials and amazing bed. The staff were Very welcoming and helpful. Food is excellent and location is amazing, I will definitely be staying here next time am in Athens.
Coco mat Athens B.C is a wonderful and eco friendly alternative to the traditional hotels in the Acropolis area. Wood and glass contemporary architecture, zenithal daylight in all areas. Very welcoming staff at all times and great service over breakfast. Warm farewell from Paul the owner, much appreciated.
The hotel has a roof terrace with a stunning view of the Acropolis, a pool, a short but very fine contemporary menu over dinner. Hip and young crowd at the pool bar. Rooms are small but comfortable. Special mention for the high quality bedding and pillow menu. Very small bathroom area in the entrance passageway which is ok for a short stay. Wooden bikes for rent in front of the hotel.

The hotel is extra clean, modern and eco friendly which is a huge plus.Every day we were greeted by a super delicious breakfast brought directly to our room, except on the last day when we decided to have it on the terrace. But the bit we will remember with greater affection was certainly the treatment received by the staff, who pampered us throughout the holiday. Available, smiling, attentive and genuine.

The rooftop is really nice whether it’s for a coffee, working in the shaded area, on the sun loungers or in the evening overlooking Athens.
