Coco Mat Hotel Athens

I recently had the pleasure of returning back to Greece for a mix of business and pleasure and my first night, I was staying at the incredible Coco Mat Hotel, the most unusual, chic, and artistic hotel I've ever stayed in. It is known as a 'design hotel' and it was certainly full of gorgeous and modern design!




At first glance, I thought this hotel was a shop, and in fact, it is! Full of gorgeous comfy beds, pillows and the bed was truly amazing to sleep on! In the Kolonaki area of Athens, it is very central, in an exclusive area, around a ten minute walk to Syntagma Square (the main heartbeat of the city) and it boasts many upscale restaurants and shops in the area, which is lovely for someone wanting to taste the more affluent side of what Athens can offer. Coco Mat's raw stylish and modern aesthetic is incredibly pleasing, with kind helpful staff and a gorgeous stylish restaurant downstairs which was a joy to eat breakfast in. It was a lovely beginning to the trip and of course I'm going to tell you all why I loved it and show you what makes it so good!



The Lobby

The Room


Clean, modern, elegant, stylish, and complete with a little balcony, the room was everything I'd expected and more. The cool tones were relaxing and made it very homely. The balcony was an added bonus for those warm mornings, and a perfect place to relax with your Nespresso coffee. The pillows were incredibly comfortable, as was the bed itself, and the perfect thing I needed after a long day of travel.











The Bathroom

The bathroom areas were separated, with the shower in a separate area and the sink around the corner, complete with a vanity and necessities for your stay. Marble and white are the main colours and textures with a wooden element which is my favourite, keeps everything incredibly clean and stylish. The shower was easy to work, and everywhere was impeccably clean and new!







The Restaurant

The restaurant is on the lower ground floor, as is the whole hotel, on the floor beneath the store (such a novelty for those who love stylish modern artsy hotels). There was a choice of cold buffet food for breakfast or you can choose hot food from the other menu. I always opt for fruit and of course you cannot resist Greek yogurt when in Greece, it truly is the best you will find!!!

















The Balcony

This was perhaps my favourite part of the hotel!! With panoramic stunning views of the city, of course including the amazing Acropolis, this hotel boasts an incredible rooftop area to relax, with a drink, doing some work, reading, or perhaps just soaking up the magic of Athens. It must not be missed if you are staying here, it was incredibly quiet on a morning after breakfast which is when I visited, and the wall is covered in intriguing art, another nod to its incredibly artsy background.







Overall, a lovely stay, easily accessibly to the city centre, and stunning views with an artsy modern feel. To look at Coco Mat's pricing and what they offer and availability click here.
