Hilton confirmed plans this week to open two hotels in Athens, as part of a management agreement with their affiliate the SCD Group LTD.
The historic Pentelikon Athens, part of the Curio Collection by Hilton, a 117-room hotel in the upscale northern suburb of Kifisia, will be Curio Collection by Hilton’s first hotel in mainland Greece when it opens in 2024.
Hampton by Hilton Piraeus Mikrolimano, an 83-room hotel opening in the popular port city of Piraeus, will be Hampton by Hilton’s first Greek property.
“Over the past 12 months we have expanded our portfolio in key resort destinations in Greece with four new hotels. This latest agreement will allow us to build on our longstanding legacy in Athens, introducing two exciting brands to the market, ” Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president, development to Europe, Middle East and Africa, Hilton states.
“Piraeus’ thriving port and Kifisia’s neighborhood of designer stores, gourmet restaurants and international company headquarters are ideal locations to bring those brands to the Athenian market,” he added.
Pentelikon in northern Athens
The well-known Pentelikon Athens hotel will undergo an €18 million renovation prior to rebranding under Curio Collection by Hilton, elevating the hotel’s offerings and restoring its unique glamor.
Joining a global portfolio of over 100 unique hotels and resorts under the Curio brand, Pantelikon Athens’ 117 rooms will include 13 stylish suites, with guests benefiting from access to the hotel’s upmarket wellness facilities.
With a fully-equipped gym, four spa treatment rooms and both an indoor and outdoor pool, guests will be able to relax and re-energize whether they are visiting Athens in the cool winters or the summers, when average temperatures reach 32°C (90 Fahrenheit).
Hampton by Hilton Piraeus Mikrolimano
A bustling port city on the Athens Riviera, Piraeus is the largest port in the Mediterranean and is known for its lively harbor.
Hampton by Hilton Piraeus Mikrolimano will be located in Kastella, the jewel of Piraeus famed for its neoclassical architecture, close to the Mikrolimano marina with spectacular views of the port.
Following a €5.5 million refurbishment, Hampton by Hilton Piraeus Mikrolimano will offer the high-quality accommodation Hampton by Hilton hotels are known for.
With four meeting rooms totaling 120 square meters and an enviable outdoor pool with breathtaking views across Piraeus and the Athenian Riviera, business and leisure travelers alike will enjoy their stay.
The hotel’s modern and fresh interior renovations will make way for a 24-hour business center, fitness facilities and comfortable rooms, while guests will also benefit from Hampton by Hilton’s award-winning service, including complimentary hot breakfast and free Wi-Fi.
