The Foundry Suites Athens: An upper-scale experience in a retro-style urban sanctuary

If you usually think that industrial places lack authenticity and heritage, then, get ready to be surprised with The Foundry Suites Athens. The building had lived many lives since the 1930s and the hotel has an elegant merge of industrial design with a postmodern vintage aesthetic. Walk in the bookshelf corridor to enter a modern oasis filled with light and stories. Every detail is designed for you to have an authentic Greek experience, with a hipster twist. Mediterranean vegetation that blends with the industrial design, the very best of local and eco-friendly in-room products, a Greek wine tasting session organized just for you, oh and that traditional breakfast basket served to your room.

Climb to the rooftop garden, to get a sense of the traditional Greek courtyard. You will find yourself tranquillized with the lavender scent, under the shades of pomegranate and olive trees. By the end of the day, an unforgettable view of the sunset on the Acropolis rock will be awaiting you.

One of the best places I’ve ever stayed! On arrival the staff were lovely and talked over breakfast options (you can eat it on the rooftop while looking at the acropolis!), we were given a map with a guide on places to visit and there was always someone on the desk 24/7 in case you need to have a chat about anything. The room we stayed in was beautiful, it was on the quieter side of the hotel but was perfect if you didn’t want to hear the night life, the maid serviced the room everyday & was lovely as well. It’s a 25 minute walk to the acropolis from the apartment & all surrounding sights such as Hadrians library, The temple of Athena and the markets are within the same time distance. We had the best time & cannot wait to visit again!

I cannot recommend the Foundry Suites Athens enough! First off, Foundry is in a prime location, in the heart of Athens. It is perfect walking distance from everything- Little Kook, Monastiraki Square, all the rooftop bars, etc.. We also felt very safe walking around this area at night.Next, the service was exceptional as well. We arrived directly from the Athens airport, earlier than check in, and they happily stowed our bags away while we went to explore. The front desk staff were also very kind. We also received a welcome drink on the rooftop bar, which was a wonderful way to kick off our honeymoon!Lastly, the quality of the rooms was unmatched. The loft style suite was very unique and fun. It felt less like a hotel, and more like a flat/apartment. We felt very comfortable there. I would recommend The Foundry Suites Athens to anyone that visits Athens!

A perfect Athens location with easy access to cafe outdoor dinning. Rooms are modern with retro accents - weird but cool. Excellent rooftop views, breakfast or evening pizza and drinks. Very good service with personal touches.

This hotel is worth every penny. From the unique surroundings in and old typewriter factory, to the fantastic rooftop bar with a view of the acropolis, the exceptional check in and concierge service, and finally the stylish and comfortable rooms with their very own pillow menu, you seriously cannot go wrong. If you’re looking for a fun and interesting place to stay in central Athens, this should top your list for sure.

Excellent hotel in Athens. Service was exceptional, staff was very attentive and the rooms are very nice and spacious. Location is also great, walking distance to restaurants, shops and major attractions. The breakfast in a picnic basket on the rooftop was a great way to start the day, with nice views of the city and the Acropolis. Will definitely stay here next time I’m in Athens. Highly recommended.

It was in a great location, the rooftop bar and cocktails were superb! The staff were all so lovely. Me and my husband had the best time. I love that we didn’t have a TV in our room so it meant we listened to music more, they even had a vinyl player! The only down side was there were a few mosquitoes in our room so my husband got bitten a bit but it was still a great place to stay. The breakfast was great as well!
