Combining the design of a boutique hotel with the space and features of a modern apartment, Magenta Luxury Suites and Rooms is the perfect place to explore the centre of Athens.
IN+SIGHTS GREECE recently spoke with the management team at Magenta Luxury Suites about the newly opened hotel’s ideal location, spacious rooms, friendly facilities and services- that help make their guests’ time in Athens, all the more memorable.
Please tell us about the location of your suites?
It was very important to us that our location was close by to a metro station and all the main landmarks and attractions of the centre of Athens. We are only a few minutes walk from Panepistimio metro station, and walking distance to Syntagma Square and Ermou Street. We have the ideal location for visitors interested in seeing the National Library, National Archeological Museum, the Parthenon, the Acropolis Museum and more. It’s the perfect place to explore the centre of Athens, either on foot or through the metro.
Are there plenty of dining options nearby?
The streets of Athens are filled with unique cafes, restaurants and shops. Our corners and surrounding streets are filled with small cafes; the street right underneath our hotel Kiafas is a great example of that. Red Lotus and Frau are two of the closest bars we would recommend any many of our guests love a night out in Syntagma, Monastiraki and Kolonaki. There are plenty of tavernas with traditional dishes as well as casual street food options nearby.
How would you describe the style of your hotel?
The hotel has a very modern feel, combining pops of colour (blue, green or pink rooms) with velvet features, creating a fun yet, sophisticated character.
What types of rooms and suites are available?
We have 19 rooms in total and they all include kitchenettes. We have six categories: Deluxe Room, Suite, Executive Room with Balcony, Executive Suite with Balcony, King Suite, Double Deluxe Suite. Our Executive Room with Balcony, Executive Suite with Balcony and King Suite are all placed on higher floors and have a balcony and a city view. The Double Deluxe Suite has two interconnecting suites, two private bathrooms, a kitchenette and a dining table; this is best suited for families or a group of friends. Our Suites are our most unique rooms, with low beds placed on a higher level reached by two steps. Our King Suite has its own separate living room, bedroom and balcony.
Is breakfast included?
We offer all our guests free coffee/ tea and water. All our rooms have their own kettle and espresso machine and our lobby is also equipped with a coffee machine that can also make a cappuccino. There is also breakfast available at an extra charge. We work with a company that allows guest to choose their breakfast choice and desired delivery time. Following safety guidelines due to Covid, we then deliver the Breakfast box to the guests’ room.
Who is Magenta Luxury Suites most suited for?
We think Magenta Luxury Suites is most suited for couples, friends and family interested in seeing Athens. It’s also perfect for business trips but also for those interested in longer stays, as we try and offer a home away from home.
What are the main services and amenities available for guests?
There is free WiFi available throughout, housekeeping (always following the Covid guidelines) and 24-hour reception and concierge. We offer an experience where guests won’t want to leave, through a variety of luxurious accommodation, comprehensive guest facilities and services. We try and make our guests’ stay easy, affordable and we like to take care of everyday details.
