The first city hotel of the Santikos Collection, the new property includes 33 rooms and a suite, and offers stunning views of Athens and Piraeus.
“The Alex’s opening turns the page for our group, creating a new collection of hotels for contemporary business travelers, also focusing on the area’s tourism market which is currently growing,” said Konstantinos Santikos, managing director of Santikos Collection.
“Our aim is to help Kastella and Mikrolimano become points of reference in the area of southeastern Europe. We are inspired by the vision of the late shipping magnate Aristotelis Onassis, who dreamed of creating the ‘Monte Kastella’,” he added.
Apart from high-end hospitality services, “The Alex” will also offer prime dining options. The hotel’s all-day café & bistrot, “The Botanist”, will operate on the ground floor, while the rooftop restaurant & bar, “The Nest”, will offer a unique view to the Athenian Riviera – including the Faliron bay – the Saronic gulf and Mount Parnitha.
“The Alex” also includes a private parking area, providing its visitors with easy access to the hotel’s facilities.
“Her long experience in the hospitality industry, as well as in our group, makes her ideal to lead our new endeavor,” the group said.
