Review Summary

Photos and Review by

Pros

  • Fantastic location within a 10-minute walk to the Acropolis
  • Ultra modern rooms, some with spectacular nighttime Parthenon views
  • Free hot breakfast buffet, including traditional Greek dishes
  • Excellent Ochre & Brown Bar Restaurant open all day, serving Greek specialties
  • 24-hour room service
  • Free Wi-Fi in rooms and in some public areas

Cons

  • Slightly seedy neighborhood (but usually not unsafe)
  • No fitness center
  • Bathrooms in lower category rooms may be a little cramped

Bottom Line

The 22-room upscale boutique O&B Athens Boutique Hotel is a youthful, contemporary spot ideally located within walking distance of the Acropolis and many other ancient historic sites and museums. Although it sits in a somewhat seedy neighborhood, the surroundings are lively and (usually) safe. The modern rooms are soundproofed, and the sheets and towels are high-quality. The O&B is a cool (air-conditioned) jewel in the center of hot, crowded Athens.

Scene

Urban cool with a homey feel and a modern Greek restaurant

The O&B Athens Boutique Hotel is an oasis of urban cool, designed with great attention to detail, from the funky but warm ambient lighting to the gorgeous hardwood floors and the wildflowers not so haphazardly arranged on the restaurant tables. The lobby is small but uncluttered, with picture windows right on the narrow street and enormous mirrors making the space feel even larger. There is an elevator, but the spiral-ish stairway to the upper floors is stunning, evoking the feel of the Greek islands. The Ochre & Brown Hotel Barestaurant is small but mighty, with a menu of Greek specialties and a free morning breakfast buffet of hot dishes, Greek yogurt, traditional pastries, and plenty more. The ochre-and- brown color scheme is very handsome, and the bar features a lot of polished steel, a skylight, and plenty of space between the tables for a private feeling. Even the room numbers are out of the ordinary, painted on arty tiles that are a testament to the O&B's inspired vision.

Location

In the heart of Athens, walking distance to tourist sites, two minutes from the metro

The O&B Athens Boutique Hotel is tucked inside a narrow alley in a seedy-looking neighborhood, but, despite the graffiti and occasional strip club, the area should be safe for walking, day or night. There are shops for antiques, coffee shops, small theaters, and restaurants in the immediate surroundings, and the Thisio metro stop is two minutes' walk from the lobby door. The Acropolis is a 10-minute walk, as is the Ancient Agora. It's a perfect location for tourists, and good for business travelers, as well.

Rooms

Air-conditioned and soundproofed, with luxury bedding and stylish modern decor

Rooms at the O&B Athens Boutique Hotel feel cool, luxurious, and uncluttered, even in a city teeming with noise, heat, and life. The air-conditioning works well, and the Egyptian cotton linens, rain showers, and luxury toiletries are appreciated touches at the end of a long day. Rooms have flat-screen TVs, DVD players, movie channels, sound systems, and free Wi-Fi. The decor is contemporary: furniture with clean lines, brown and bronze upholstery with pops of color, and ambient lighting. Suites have Acropolis views, but also look into other apartments. Bathrooms in lower-category rooms may be cramped but are still beautiful.

Features

Free breakfast, room service, excellent restaurant, in-room massage services

Not only is there hot food, but the meal includes local Greek cheeses and pastries, yogurt, honey, and nuts.
