Housed in a neoclassical building from 1881 designed by German-born architect Ernst Ziller, Monument Athens is one of the newest additions to central Athens’s hospitality map. The hotel stands as a testament to the magnificence of 19th-century architecture. Recognized by the Ministry of Culture as a Work of Art and a Newer Monument, and preserved by the Ministry of the Environment, the building radiates an unparalleled grandeur.
The renovation by MplusM architects lasted more than two years in order to preserve, restore and highlight the building’s original charm and monumental character, without altering its original distinctive features. Carved marble balconies, murals and painted ceilings are some of the most characteristic architectural elements that were preserved and exude the timeless allure of the building. Featuring 9 boutique rooms, where history and luxury seamlessly intertwine, the Monument offers exclusive wellness services to its guests. Inside, natural materials along with a mix of contemporary, vintage, and bespoke furniture create an ambiance that is both elegant and contemporary.
