PERIANTH HOTEL

Situated in the heart of Athen’s most liveliest squares, Agia Eirini, Perianth Hotel is your immediate immersion into the city’s most modern and vibrant areas. The hotel is nestled into the winding backstreets of the area, so perfectly private that it’s entrance is almost very easy to miss.

Upon arrival, you are immediately greeted with a refreshing lemon soda while check-in is conducted by the front reception concierge who double as local insiders, assisting you with the most knowledgeable stay and time in the capital. Even prior to arrival, the Perianth Hotel team are helpful in supporting with suggestions for your itinerary – a reflection of the generous hotel ethos and authenticity.

Perianth Hotel is found in a charming 1930’s Art Deco building, whose exterior curves match the sweeping floors easily navigated inside. With a modern interior designed by Athens-based firm K-Studio, find the ground floor dining and leisure area showcasing mustard velour lounges, marble table tops and terrazzo flooring. Here, the interior is defined by curved silhouettes in brass and furniture that envelope you in the space.

While all the key landmarks (local food and fashion markets, souvlaki restaurants) are within walking distance, some are also viewable from the hotel itself – such as the monumental Acropolis. Your best introduction to Athens can possibly be from your own hotel balcony. Simply inform your concierge of your desired room and view, who are more than welcoming and open to assist the request. Rooms at Perianth Hotel are categorised by size; from The Superior Room and The Perianth Junior Suite, to the 116-square-meter Perianth Penthouse Suite that features a 360-degree view of the city, including the Acropolis and Lycabetus Hill. Inside each room, find complimentary Nespresso coffee, and locally-produced APIVITA amenities, such as Greek Honey & Orange Shampoo, and Greek Honey & Mountain Tea Shower Gel.

One of the most exciting elements about Perianth Hotel is that it is owned and led by 3 siblings; Anastasia, Alexandra, and Konstantinos Sgoumpopoulo who inject their own modernity into the concept, approach and identity of the space. The 38-room hotel part of the Design Hotels group, is a pivotal addition to the city’s contemporary landscape, where the siblings’ backgrounds in fashion, art and hospitality merge into an amalgamation of conscious living. One sibling had previously spent time in Japan and hence established the Zen Center Athens found on the 2nd floor of the hotel. It’s an unconventional approach, yet one that perfectly reflects their forward-thinking approach to a growing need in meditation and contemporary refuge.

Perianth Hotel is your best introduction to the city’s cultural heritage and a nod to the emerging modernism in Greek design and lifestyles.
