Radisson Blu Park Hotel Athens first opened its doors in 1976 on the border of the central park of Athens, Pedion Areos (Martian Field), in a safe part of the city. For 35 years the lovely park has been a wonderful host and marked the very identity of this leading deluxe hotel. Now, we thought, it is time for the hotel to host the park inside. This was the inspiration behind our recent renovation, which came to prove a virtual rebirth for Park Hotel Athens.Right upon entering the spacious lobby you can actually feel and smell the park: pale tree-trunks serve as elegant pillars, amidst modern leather sofas; the canvas of scattered leaves on the ceiling gently alternates colors just like seasons do, balanced by the background of a contemporary art-wall. This concept of urban nature, determining the further ongoing refurbishing of our rooms and suites, also reflects our philosophy. We want our guests, business and leisure alike, to actually live here rather than just stay.
