The city's first boutique hotel is easily one of the most charming in Athens, with a staff that makes you feel as if this is your home away from home. This quiet sanctuary overlooks the garden of the American ambassador's home. Guest rooms are large and elegantly decorated, with furniture and paintings you'd be happy to live with. Marvelous breakfasts and snacks are served. The only drawback: The Andromeda is a serious hike (20-30 min.) or a 10-minute taxi ride to Syntagma, but the walk is pleasant and easily done plus very easily accessible by bus and trolley bus. You're also close to the Athens Music Hall and some great restaurants/nightlife such as The Park, Balthazar, 48, and Baraonda. The Hilton isn't too far, either.
