Absolutely 10/10 Perfect Stay and Hotel!!!
This was the most amazing hotel experience. The location was perfect for the attractions, dining, and shopping. When we arrived the door was locked for security and we were immediately buzzed in. The extra comfort of knowing you're safe is wonderful. Then, we were able to sit down and check in, were offered refreshments, and even given free maps and tips/suggestions on places to see and where not to go/eat. Those turned out to be amazing suggestions during our trip. Next, we were escorted to our family suite. We are a family of 6 and it was the perfect amount of space for everyone. Very clean, nicely remodeled and updated, and very nice features-such as under bed lighting and electric blackout curtains. The room was so clean, the breakfast was so delicious, and the entire experience was absolutely perfect. The hotel really went out of their way to help us book trips, restaurants, or cars if we needed them. There was always someone at the desk to help and they were always happy to help us. We will not stay anywhere else when we return, this was a perfect trip made even more perfect because of this amazing hotel and their service.

Athens Ikon is amazing! I searched several properties in Athens and read reviews. We almost went with one that was a little cheaper, but I’m glad we ended up going with Athens Ikon. The staff is amazing and took great care of our large family. They helped arrange transportation and Covid testing for us. Breakfast also gets delivered to your room every morning, which is super convenient with kids. The location is also excellent. It is right in the city with lots of shopping and restaurants right across the street. Everything was within walking distance, so we didn’t need to rent a car. And there were no issues with noise. We were extremely satisfied with our stay and plan on staying there for our next visit to Athens.

Love this place!
One of the nicest places we've ever stayed. The location was perfect and within walking distance of all the major attractions we visited. The service was excellent, the staff was very kind and accommodating, and the breakfast was delicious with many options. The room was very large, modern, and comfortable. I will definitely come back here again!!!

We loved the small, boutique feel and attentiveness of the staff. The location was perfect--we were able to walk everywhere. Our suite was spotless, and we all enjoyed the daily breakfast brought to our room. It's not easy to find enough space for a family of 5, and the rooms (and 2 bathrooms!) were perfect. There was always someone at the front desk to greet us and help with dinner and tour reservations, and other suggestions. We had several email communications before our arrival, and really appreciated all the help and quick responses. They even arranged a taxi pick up from the airport for us. We've never been to Greece before and it was wonderful to feel so welcomed and get such helpful advice.

Excellent location and wonderful staff!
Great location near Syntagma Square and 5 mins walk to the Plaka. Beautiful efficiency! We had 3, and the couch was made into a second bed so the space was small but spotless and very modern. It was beautifully renovated. Highlight was the massive terrace!! We only wished we could’ve stayed longer than one night! Also, staff was so helpful! We truly enjoyed this short stay.
Huge terrace!
Well designed space.

Modern comfort suite hotel in heart of Athens
We were visiting Athens with my daughter and her 2 young children. We wanted a place to stay that we could all be together so we could help out with our grandchildren. The Ikon was the perfect solution. The Suite provided plenty of sleeping space as well as room to spread out. The kitchenette allowed us to get take out dinners and snacks to eat in the suite. It was wonderful to have a customized breakfast delivered to our room each morning at the time that met our busy tour schedule. I can’t praise the staff enough. They were wonderful! Always willing to help when we needed anything including information like the nearest grocery or where to get our return flight Covid-test. The suites are very clean, modern, and comfortable. Highly recommend. Kitchenette has microwave, fridge and cook top with appropriate kitchen ware and dishes. Great air conditioning too! The area is safe with lots of opportunities for shopping and dinning out.

Very modern
The service is great. It's a very modern hotel. No light switches, all digital. AC, lights, blinds. If you get there and no-one opens the door, don't panic, someone will show up within 5 minutes. There was no view from our room. Bad view. The breakfast is ordered the day before and they bring it to your room.
