Athens Capital Hotel: First MGallery Property in Greece Opens

The Athens Capital Hotel – MGallery on Tuesday officially opened its doors, bringing the upscale style of the Accor brand to Syntagma Square in the center of the Greek capital.

The property, which is included in the portfolio of Lampsa Hellenic Hotels SA, is the first ever from Accor’s MGallery Hotel Collection to open in Greece. The MGallery Hotel Collection features boutique hotels, each with its own original design and unique stories to tell.

“We are happy to have joined forces with a group whose core values we share, Lampsa Hellenic Hotels SA, in welcoming the MGallery philosophy to Athens and Greece. This significant partnership speaks to the hotel’s unique ambiance and excellent services,” Jean-Charles Delgado, COO of Accor Southern Europe, said.

The first MGallery hotel in Greece boasts 177 guestrooms, including 18 suites and one impressive Presidential Suite, designed to provide an unparalleled experience of hospitality.

On-site hotel amenities include the MFlavours Main Restaurant, which promises food “journeys” to the Mediterranean; the Galerie Café on the ground floor; and the Mappemonde Rooftop Pool Bar, which offers panoramic views of Athens from morning until night.

According to Accor, Athens Capital Hotel – MGallery is the perfect starting point from which to discover Athens, “a unique European metropolis which embodies an indulgent combination of ancient character and contemporary lifestyle through sightseeing, high-end shopping and art in all its forms”.

The hotel is located in very close distance to the chic area of Kolonaki and near the historical and picturesque Plaka neighborhood.

“From its unparalleled location on Syntagma Square, this hotel will come to be synonymous with the capital city itself, the one place where guests can experience the true meaning of Athens… We truly believe that the opening of this new hotel will bring a new era in the Athenian hospitality,” Accor Southern Europe’s COO added.

Athens’ story

As underlined by Accor, with more than 100 MGallery hotels around the world, each tells a unique story inspired by the destination.

“Every MGallery Hotel Collection stay is enriched with unique storytelling; this is why each one leads its guests on a journey through its own special Iconic Object, an item of great significance to the city, and Memorable Moments, an experience which introduces guests to the distinctive character of the area. At Athens Capital Hotel – MGallery, the Iconic Object is the emblematic Akrokeramon, a show of architectural finesse which graces the city’s neoclassical buildings and is symbolic of the hotel’s philosophy and unique sense of hospitality. Its Memorable Moment, crafting the traditional Komboloi, is here to draw guests on a journey through time to an authentic Greek workshop, to help foster memories that they will never forget,” Accor said.
