Igor Sergeev, editor-in-chief of WOW magazine, visited Greece for Christmas. His unforgettable holiday started with Athens at Academias Hotel.

Inspired by the wisdom and intellect of the ancient Athenians, Academias Hotel is a luxury city hotel that is a modern interpretation of Plato’s Academy, combining old and new, awakening all the senses, combining personalised amenities, impeccable service and a unique experience. Echoing the spirit of the Academy, the hotel embodies the 3 principles of the historical Academy – science, art and philosophy – and brings them to life in the hotel’s various rooms in a post-modern style. Featuring 60 rooms and suites and surrounded by all the ancient sites of Athens, Hotel Academias provides the ideal environment for the harmonious interaction between intellectual creation and a variety of leisure and business activities.

You’ll be within walking distance of the Acropolis and all the historical sites of Athens, shopping, art galleries and vibrant nightlife.

Academias Hotel provides a few types of rooms: the A – Suite, Anesis – Deluxe, Aura – Guest and Ariston – Executive rooms. All of them are luxurious and spacious.

Take a break and indulge your senses at Pnoe, the hotel’s luxurious wellness center. Pamper yourself with some of the advanced spa treatments, which include elements and ingredients from Greek nature. Pnoe Wellness Center also features a sauna and a 24-hour fitness facility.

Exceptional, fresh and raw food becomes the basis for a fascinating selection of elegant dishes with Japanese influences, tastefully paired with signature cocktails to satisfy the most discerning palates and create a truly unique dining and drinking experience.

Igor Sergeev commented on his stay at Academias Hotel: “It’s not my first time in Greece and I love it very much! I’ve been to Mykonos, Santorini, Anafa Islands, but this is my first time in Athens.

When looking for a hotel, 3 factors are important to me: location, service, cuisine. I found them all at Academias Hotel. I can safely recommend this hotel to you, my dear readers, and to all my friends. By choosing Academias Hotel you will not regret it.
