Part of our week-long journey in Greece took us to the Perianth Hotel, a wonderful boutique art hotel in the heart of Athens.

Situated in Agia Irini, the hotel is surrounded by myriad eateries, impressive classical architecture, quirky local boutiques and some of the best nightlife in Athens.

At Perianth design chic meets minimalistic-cum-industrialist eclecticism in a unique and fascinating combination. A throwback to the 1930s Athenian modernist movement, interiors are characterised by terrazzo floors, marble elements and glass-brick walls throughout.

Inasmuch as Perianth Hotel offers a visual feast, it is the blend of luxury and homeliness that makes this hotel undoubtedly one of the best in Athens.

The rooms are spacious with en-suite bathrooms and independent balconies. Featuring brass bed frames, soothing pastel colours throughout, an amazing rain shower (with shower seat!) in the bathroom, the rooms are comprehensive, comfortable and provide everything you could want from a hotel.

Other notable parts of the hotel are the lobby, with its ‘waterfall wall’ and the breakfast room/lounge areas. With lime green, uber comfortable velvet sofas, industrial lights hanging down and art works from contemporary Greek artists (such as Lito Kattou, Rallou Panagiotou and Maria Papadimitriou) dotted throughout, visually speaking, there is never a dull moment at Perianth hotel.

Last but not least, is the hotel’s restaurant, Il Barretto. Offering a delectable smorgasbord of Italian delights, the restaurant is two steps away from the hotel and a guaranteed winner if you are looking for an exceptional dining experience.
