Radisson Individuals arrives in Greece
The Social Athens Hotel, the Group’s first Radisson Individuals property in Greece, has opened in Kolonaki
The Social Athens Hotel, a member of Radisson Individuals, is the only branded hotel on famed Voukourestiou Street, an upscale retail street in the center of Athens, home to international luxury fashion houses and Greek designers. To match its location, The Social Athens Hotel has a modern, wavy façade made of white thermal insulation panels. The interiors aim to create a synergy between a genuine urban Athenian experience and a calm and elegant hotel stay.
The new upscale boutique hotel features 24 guest rooms and suites, including a presidential suite which has a large terrace and views of Lycabettus Hill. The hotel occupies a former public building from the 1960s which has been transformed by the Greek-Swedish firm, OOAK architects, who have created true synergy between a Athenian social experience and a calm hotel stay. All rooms feature materials native to Greece.
Hotel guests benefit from a range of services, from free high-speed internet access to an outdoor fitness centre. The hotel’s restaurant and bar area on the ground floor invites the city into the hotel and focusses on fresh, sustainable ingredients to create Mediterranean and international dishes.
“Our guests can expect an unparalleled experience of elegance and style in the heart of Athens’ most exclusive area. Whether it’s culture, entertainment, or shopping, our hotel is the perfect base for all that Athens has to offer. The Social is not just a place to stay, it's a destination for socializing and experiencing the vibrant Athenian culture”, said Eleni Basmpani, Hotel Manager of The Social Athens Hotel, a member of Radisson Individuals.
Following the opening of The Social Athens Hotel, a member of Radisson Individuals, Radisson Hotel Group’s Greek portfolio now includes six hotels in operation. In 2021 and 2022, the Group expanded its resort portfolio with Radisson Blu Zaffron Hotel, Santorini and Radisson Blu Euphoria Resort, Mykonos in the Cyclades, as well as Radisson Resort Plaza Skiathos in the Northern Sporades, offering guests a wide selection of destinations and hotel brands from which to choose.
