Great hotel for long weekend
Great hotel for a city break. Convenient to main tourists sites whilst option of nearby restaurant away from tourist heart of city. Room well designed and very comfy. Only critic covid rules no room cleaning on a 4 night stay - this needs to start changing.

Wonderful conclusion to our honeymoon!
We absolutely LOVED our stay at the Modernist!! This was our third/last stop as part of our longer Honeymoon trip and we honestly wished we would’ve also stayed here when we first arrived in Athens (our second hotel was in Santorini). The staff was very accommodating and welcoming, and they were the only hotel during our trip to acknowledge/celebrate our honeymoon by offering us a complimentary bottle of delicious red wine. They made excellent restaurant recommendations and assisted us with getting our COVID tests scheduled. The decor and vibe of the hotel is great, and the black color is not overdone. The location is perfect, and the view from the roof deck is mesmerizing. We’ll definitely return to the Modernist if we visit Athens again.

Made our trip the Athens perfect
I don’t write reviews often, but really felt it necessary to write one for this property. This boutique hotel is not only stunningly designed, and in a great location, but the service is hands-down the best we have ever received! We were a party of 6, staying in 3 rooms for a week between Christmas and New Year’s Eve. The staff consistently went above and beyond our expectations to make sure we were being taken care of. They made us breakfast boxes on a morning we had to catch an early train for an all day your, as well as on our departure day, as we had to leave for the airport at 3am. We loved the breakfast buffet here—-along the best we have experienced, and the room service was always yummy and prompt! Cannot recommend The Modernist enough! We loved it.
