Melia Athens

Melia Athens 4 Star

from £79 per room night

 
 

Location

A decadent downtown address, the Melia is just a couple of blocks from the National Archaeological Museum, boasting one of the world’s most renowned collections. With a backdrop of the Acropolis and Lycabettus Hill, the hotel is surrounded by Athens’ best sights, most of which are within a discus throw. It won’t take an Olympic effort to get around town either, with the metro conveniently located nearby, offering easy access to the airport too.

Rooms

A break from the past, all classes of rooms at the Melia have a fresh, updated feel thanks to light wood touches, warm shades of gold and ochre and large windows that are triple-glazed to be totally soundproof. Hanging on the walls are signed paintings from Greek contemporary artists, and the fine fabrics – from the bedspreads to the towels – will ensure a cosy and comfortable stay. The highest category is Executive Junior Suite, featuring a sofa, hydromassage bath and Murano crystal lamps.

Activities

The ancient world sits right on your doorstep in this part of town, and the National Archaeological Museum or Acropolis Museum – housed in a stunningly designed building – could take up a whole day easily. Though modern wonders exist in the form of Technopolis, where music, performing arts and exhibitions converge against the backdrop of the old Gazi gas works. In summer, Athenians love to go to the movies too, and scores of outdoor cinemas screen classic films on balmy nights.

Dining

Vivendo is a bright and bustling spot for breakfast on the mezzanine floor, serving a range of healthy options, while throughout the day on the ground floor Café Mondo offers fresh salads, Greek delicacies, light snacks and delectable pastries and coffees. A similar menu, which includes gorgeous ice creams can be enjoyed on the rooftop at Sky Lounge; then after dark it transforms into the perfect spot for a romantic meal with an à la carte menu enjoyed under a breezy, starry night sky with views of the twinkling lights below and views of the city’s famous hills and monuments.

Spa

Located on the sunny rooftop, the 22m-long outdoor pool at Melia is great for a few lengths before breakfast, and features a pooldeck hydromassage. In the air-conditioned health club, work up a sweat on the modern cardiovascular equipment and relax in the sauna with natural sunlight, or the traditional Turkish-style steam bath. Massages can be scheduled in the dedicated massage rooms meaning pampering is a priority here too.
