Quiet elegance in Athen's best neighbourhood

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 18, 2011

The Hotel Pentelikon is a 5 star hotel in an upscale neighbourhood north of the tourist sites of Athens. It is primarily a business hotel, catering to the needs of business people and their spouses or partners, as its location doesn't lend itself to easy tourism. It's one of those places where one person goes off to do business while the other lounges by the pool--or at least that's how we worked it.

The staff is very helpful, friendly, and courteous--as one would expect from a 5 star establishment. The rooms (I've only stayed in Executive rooms on my stays) are large, very clean (cleanliness in a hotel is my number one criteria) and comfortable. The beds are a bit hard for my preference, but many of the hotels in Europe are, so I won't hold that against them.

The hotel restaurant--La Terrasse--is an Italian themed, comfortable, tasty experience. The kitchen is open until 1 AM; the wait staff is superb, friendly, and this is a great place to relax after a long day with a glass or two of wine and some conversation. There is a Michelin Star restaurant--Vardis--on site as well, but I've not experienced it so cannot comment.

The only slight hiccup--and I easily forgive it--is that when I arrived with my partner unexpectedly in tow, there was some discussion, in Greek, and apologies. They then asked his name, sifted through some papers, more Greek dialogue and finally apologized that they didn't have a reservation for him. Crisis averted--I said he was with me and we would stay in the same room. More consternation, Greek discussion, then the concern spoken in English that they didn't have a room available with two separate beds. Awkward moment followed when I said we would sleep together. One of the coping mechanisms of gay travelers is to choose upper 4 and 5 star hotels to avoid just this sort of exchange--it's not a B&B in rural Iowa, after all, and they should have seen this sort of thing before. As I said, though, it is easily forgivable--the Hotel Pentelikon is a wonderful experience for those travelers who want a clean, comfortable, and quiet place to lay their heads, have a drink, and a decent meal.

Unique Quality: Although the hotel is in a residential area, it is a short 10 minute walk to good high-end shopping--thinnk Dolce & Gabbana, Diane von Furstenberg, Louis Vuitton. These shops are intermixed with a good range of bars, clubs, and restaurants, from low-end American chains to pricey Greek estiatorioes

Directions: Kifissia is an upscale neighbourhood in the north of Athens, quite a distance from the tourist sites, but within easy reach by train (1/2 hour). The trains are safe and cheap: 70 Euro cents one way. A cab ride is about the same length, and around 20 Euro.
