Check in: One of the few city hotels in Athens that has a playroom. Throw in a babysitting service and a rooftop pool, and this fashionable hotel in posh Kolonaki keeps the whole family smiling. The view of the city sprawling at your feet is another bonus—on clear days you can see all the way to the sea. Stores, museums, galleries, cinemas, and restaurants are all easily reachable on foot. Just keep in mind that the hotel is on a steep hill, so walking back and forth with toddlers or strollers can be a struggle in the summer months.
Check out: Enjoy a mimosa at the Sunday family brunch while admiring the Acropolis, smug in the knowledge that the experienced staff of Nannuka (a local, trustworthy online babysitting service) are occupying your kids (ages 3-12) with games and activities. Oh, and they also screen kid’s movies with popcorn every Sunday at 4 pm. Just don’t forget to go sightseeing. Kids of all ages will love to ride the (indoor) funicular to the top of Lycabettus Hill, where snap happy teens can score awesome Instagram points. The funicular is only a couple of blocks from the hotel.
