  • American buffet breakfast is included in the rate
  • Nibbling on Mediterranean-inspired snacks in the trendy, candlelit ninth-floor Air Lounge while soaking up sunset views of the Acropolis
  • Flaking out by the shaded pool with a cocktail after a hard day’s sightseeing
  • Lazing over very fresh fruit salad, hot croissants and other goodies at breakfast

What To Know

  • Up-and-coming but not quite there yet, Psiri oozes exotic atmosphere in streets packed with Arab bazaars and bizarre boutiques, but it’s best not to stray late at night
  • Fans of peace and quiet should book upper-floor rooms away from the lively street scene, especially on weekends
  • Dress code is trendy-casual, so leave the twinset and pearls at home
  • Kids are well seen to with free cribs, a special children’s menu and babysitters by arrangement
  • The pool is open year-round, but isn't heated. It's normally warm enough to swim from late March to October

Hotel with lovely staff

We had a long weekend and enjoyed the hotel and the staff. Excellent breakfast, very nice rooms, and the staff amazing and solves any problem with pleasantness and smile, and full guidance on the area.
Every time we arrived at the hotel there was a staff member outside who greeted us with a smile and also a staff member at the front desk inside.
Our every request was quickly answered.

A Little Gem in Athens

We were initially a little unsure whether to book the Fresh hotel due to the reviews which mention the area being pretty undesirable. We are so glad we did! Of course some of the streets surrounding the hotel are very run down and there are a few people hanging around that we were a little unsure of as well a huge amount of graffiti but other than that we were extremely pleased with the location and access by foot to some lovely bars & tavernas as well all the main sights, we didn't need to use public transport once while out and about, we walked everywhere. Check-in was excellent and we were upgraded to a lovely suite with great space and private balcony. There is a lovely, although small and pretty cold swimming pool and deck area which can get pretty busy, however we always managed to find sun beds. A Lovely bar & restaurant area with lovely views especially for sunsets! Service was always friendly and helpful and the hotel is bright and clean. There is a small gym which was great to have although would be better if it opened earlier. Breakfast which was included, was plentiful and fresh although again this could get very busy at times. Overall we were so pleased with our choice of The Fresh Hotel and wouldn't hesitate to return or recommend for a trip to Athens.

Better than average but a few shortcomings for North Americans.

The hotel was well managed, and we really appreciated the breakfast bag at 4.15 am when we checked out. It was clean and comfortable, but the low beds are a bit of a challenge for people with mobility problems. Also North Americans really need a bit more space. In fairness our tour operator said this was a standard room, I don’t know why that happened as I had asked for deluxe rooms in all our other locations.
In any event, it was fine, we liked the fact that it was centrally located. We were able to stroll in the central market, that was fine. I would certainly stay here again but try to get a larger room.
Also, this hotel has a reasonable rooftop dining area. The food is ok but the view at night is phenomenal.
