If, during a stay in Athens, you are looking for a pied a terre far from the impersonal rooms often proposed, do not probe anymore! Halfway between the bourgeois hotel and the cozy inn, Monsieur Didot combines neoclassical architecture, contemporary design and home-like comfort!
Designed by the Athenian studio BaBatchas, the hotel Monsieur Didot is conceived as the residence of a fictitious aristocrat. Housed in a century-old building between the upscale Kolonaki neighborhood and the trendy Exarchia, the hotel - which hosted John Lennon and Yoko Ono fifty years ago - is a mix of contemporary design and neoclassical heritage. Designers keep decorative moldings, marble mantels and beautiful chevron wood flooring. A licked and dated decor enlivened by the minimalist furniture.
The hotel does not play in excess and retains a family spirit both in the decor and in the proposal. Indeed, counting only two suites and four rooms, the residence puts on a comfortable and personal arrangement of the penates, embellishing libraries, plants and elements. Same treatment for common areas that do everything to make the tourist experience as pleasant as possible.
Thus, on the top floor, travelers can enjoy the Mediterranean climate of Greece thanks to a veranda and a private terrace and relax in the evening in an intimate library.
What to slip into the skin of an intellectual with suitcases well supplied!
