Where: The Hilton district is close to upmarket Kolonaki
Why Stay: For the oversized rooms and the services you expect from the Hilton brand
We Loved: The 25 metre pool and decadent buffet breakfast

The Hilton Hotel Athens provides the ultimate respite after a long day exploring. The oversized rooms are an added luxury and all include balconies. Their outdoor 25 metre pool is by far the best in Athens and is a great way to finish or start the day in the summer months. There is also an indoor heated hydrotherapy pool.

Equally impressive is the Galaxy Bar and Restaurant on the 12th floor, with a magical view overlooking the Acropolis and Lycabettus Hill, attracting visitors staying outside of the hotel.

Breakfast is a highlight with a large buffet and open plan kitchen ready to serve you freshly made eggs and omelettes.

Overall, the Hilton Hotel Athens is ideal for families travelling with children and offers all the services and amenities you would expect from the Hilton brand.

Why Athens Tip: If you’re wanting to visit the beauty and hair salon during your stay, it is advisable to book in advance of your arrival, as it tends to be very popular during peak times.
