    room was clean, neat well decorated.helpful staff who spoke english. Breakfast was great

    at 2;15 am some electronic noise started clicking and didn't stop for the rest of the night. Very annoying and ruined my sleep. I think it was a fire service trying to reset????? not sure if I will stay at this hotel again because of this reason. It is not worth the risk.

    Good

    Breakfast was tasteful, vibrant, modern and of high quality. Beds were very comfortable and cosy.

    The room was far from what is advertised on the hotel pages. It was a small, dark room, with a window facing some kind of interior patio, with all the plumbing running outside. We have asked for a twin bed room and we got a double bed. When we complained they changed beds, not rooms, and the room became very small. The bathroom walls were flaking and there was a foul smell coming from the piping.

    Very good

    The location, as usual! That's the main reason we stay there. Also, the new restaurant by Peskias.

    It would have been good to have an additonal bar/lounge area. You have to sit at the restaurant even for a coffee/drink.

    modern outlook, good quality and nice design

    would be expecting staff to be somewhat more professional.

    Good location in the middle of Kolonaki posh area of Athens.

    My room was dark and small. Breakfast was not of the quality I was expecting in a hotel of this level.

  • 8.8
    Superb

    Friendliness and general staff attitude. Excellent location in the city centre. Free wi-fi everywhere very much appreciated as well as availability of hotel laptop for the use of guests.

    Rooms rather on the small side. Very easy to flood the bathroom if not very careful in the shower! Something has to be done about the showers!

    Superb

    First of all, the staff is very friendly and helpful, they re ready to find the info you need... The double room is ok but a little tiny, for sure not for a family of three to put an extra bed, but the junior suit very comfortable and spacey. The backround room has a little but continuous airconditioning noice. The Restaurant which is @ the entrence of the Hotel seemed to have Good food that every night i was seing local people dining.

    The staff were very friendly and helpful with all that I required. Nothing was to much trouble. Thanks to all the staff for making my stay enjoyable. The hotel is located with in walking distance (about 10-15 mins) of centre of Athens and all the attractions are easily accessible. I traveled on the big red bus and saw all the sites. I would not hesitate to recommend Periscope to other travellers.

    Very good

    Its my second time in this hotel: the staff is very friendly and the situation ideal in the center of Kolonaki , near the nice restaurants and the business area the quality of the beds is very good..and the style of the hotel is nice.

    Its of course not the responsability of the hotel, but there is a building just in front, in construction and in the morning, the noise is incredible! The breakfast could be much better: just so few things... U have to ask for all " extras" like orange juice or egg...what is totally normally proposed in other hotels! The price this time, was 160 € /night, very expensive if you see other hotels in athens propisng incredible prices for same level of quality... I can recommand this hotel, but wait untill the construction is finished!!

    Unbelievable, but there were no black tee in the restaurant, neither for breckfast, no for dinner. Construction across the streat is noisy.

    Great concept, great design, great Group. Very quiet room, apart from background air conditioning noise - see comment below

    Some confusion about the room lighting switches and would have liked to be able to turn off the fan noise from the main air conditioning unit. We could turn off the air conditioner in the room but could still hear the fan from the hotel air conditioning.

    The price, the location and the minimal design

    The room was a little bit small and there was no place to leave anything in the bathroom (like a shelf or a drawer)
