The Dolli at Acropolis resides in a heritage neoclassical mansion from 1925, which has seen a remarkable evolution. Originally built as a private residence, it has experienced various metamorphoses, including serving as a luxury fabric department store, before becoming the centrepiece of Grecotel’s collection in 2023.

The design by architect Andreas Kriezis features rich sculptural decorations, grandeur, and symmetry. The interiors are an eclectic mix, adorned with eccentric furniture, thriving plants, and artworks by Jean Cocteau, Les Lalanne, and Pablo Picasso.

Rooms and Apartments:

The hotel boasts 46 opulent bedrooms, pieds-à-terre, and private apartments, all basking in Athenian sunlight. Each accommodation radiates a soulful warmth, an intimate ambiance, and understated luxury, adorned with a blend of classic and contemporary artwork. Guests are treated to flat-screen TVs, secure safety deposit boxes, and private bathrooms equipped with bidets and luxurious Guerlain amenities. Imagining a more idyllic spot for morning coffee than a balcony overlooking the Acropolis is a challenge indeed.

Dining and Rooftop Restaurant:

Dolli’s rooftop restaurant stands as an emblematic presence, offering a sweeping view of Athens. It provides comforting culinary experiences, inviting guests to relish the essence of the present amidst the grandeur of ancient marvels.

Infinity Pool with a Mesmerizing Illusion:

Why Stay at The Dolli?

The Dolli’s location is as exceptional as its views, nestled in the heart of the Historical Centre. The streets here brim with quaint tavernas, chic wine bars, and stylish boutiques, perfect for unwinding after a day spent at the designer stores on Voukourestiou Street or exploring the vintage finds in Exarcheia.

While the ancient ruins of Greece are ever-present in the city, a trip to the Acropolis is essential to see the Parthenon, the Temple of Athena Nike, the Roman Agora, and the Temple of Hephaestus.

The Dolli takes everything that makes Athens so special and presents it in the form of an ultra-chic boutique hotel.
