The Foundry Hotel 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 hotel has an elegant merge of industrial design with a postmodern vintage aesthetic.

Walk through a bookshelf corridor to enter a modern oasis filled with light and stories. The building had lived many lives since the 1930s as a font Foundry then a theatre place before three friends decided to transform it into this luxurious hotel.
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.

Save the memories along through the Polaroid provided by the hotel as you walk through the lively city center. Then repose on the rooftop garden, the crown of the hotel with its terrace gives a sense of traditional Greek courtyard. You will find yourself tranquilized 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.
