눉No bad experience at the Periscope.
눇We stayed at the Periscope both at the beginning and at the end of our vacation on the Greek Islands. Our first room was a studio with a full balcony, a fine sofa and a bit of a view of Mt. Lykavittos -- we were thrilled with it. But we were also happy with the regular room we reserved for the end of our stay. We disagree with people who think Periscope's regular rooms are too small -- wait until they visit New York City where rooms are smaller at 2, 3 or 4 times the price, and the location not so fashionable. The bed linens, towels and toiletries at Periscope were of fine quality and provided in ample quantities. The bed itself was exceptionally comfortable. We had plenty of space to move about in our room! Hotel staff called taxis, suggested and reserved restaurants, and mapped out walking routes for us, all with good humor. I almost hesitate to recommend the hotel in order to keep it off the beaten tourist path, which it is now because it seems people don't think, or know, to stay in Kolonaki with its many restaurants, cafes and proximity to several important museums. It would help tourism in Athens to have just a few more small hotels in Kolonaki which is a good-sized, charming and safe neighborhood. We hope to visit Athens again and are already planning on staying at the Periscope.
