Bottom Line

Upon arriving at the upscale Theoxenia Palace Hotel, travelers are greeted with the sight of a white mansion-like property with marble interiors and antique wooden furniture. While the classic style doesn’t appeal to all, it certainly creates an elegant atmosphere that attracts couples. Six meeting rooms and a business center bring in the business travelers. A seasonal outdoor pool and free breakfast buffet are enticing for everyone. The spa costs a fee to access. The 71 rooms are similarly sophisticated in terms of decor and amenities like smart TVs and minibars, however, with a lack of coffee and tea-making facilities and thin walls, it’s not as upscale an experience as it could be. Travelers could also consider the nearby Semiramis Hotel, a chic, youthful property with a pool that turns into a club-like space at night.

Oyster Hotel Review

Theoxenia Palace Hotel


Elegant boutique hotel with upscale spaces and a clientele of mostly couples

With a white facade and deep red carpet that leads up the stairs to the entrance, the Theoxenia Palace Hotel certainly cuts a striking first impression. While it underwent a 2012 renovation, the boutique hotel still exudes an Old World classical charm among the public spaces. The marble white floors, columns, and curved lit ceilings speak to the upscale nature of the property. Antique furniture and details like chandeliers and staircases with gold railings intensifies the ambience. While the lobby is elegant, the restaurant is more sophisticated and modern and plays with a mix of wood colors found everywhere from the light floors to the dark sleek furniture to the wood slated ceiling and walls. Most guests are business travelers who don’t mind the hotel’s location so far from the main attractions. Couples stay here, too, as the classic style is appealing in a romantic sense.

30-minute drive from Athens' city center, but only a 15-minute drive to Mall of Athens

Tourists won’t find Theoxenia Palace Hotel’s location ideal, as it’s a 27-minute drive to Athens’ city center, where major attractions like the Parthenon stand. Across the street from a park and surrounded by dining options, the property sits in Kefalari, an upscale northern suburb of Athens. In terms of shopping, the hotel has a decent location. The Mall of Athens takes 15 minutes to reach by car and the Golden Hall is a 16-minute drive away. Travelers could walk 20 minutes to the nearest metro stop if they don’t have a car. It’s a 30-minute drive to the Athens International Airport.

Stately rooms with Smart TVs and minibars, though no coffeemakers

Rooms at Theoxenia Palace Hotel have a subdued decor that delicately hangs between elegant and old-fashioned. Soft gray or cream walls and contemporary armchairs and couches create a stately ambience. However, it can be a bit dampened in some rooms with tired antique furniture and plain light gray or striped blue and yellow bedding. It probably doesn’t help that guests complain of creaking floors and thin walls that allow for bothersome noise, both of which diminish the rooms that do have dark sophisticated furniture and charming artwork. With free Wi-Fi, smart TVs, air-conditioning, minibars, and safes, there are plenty of amenities in rooms to keep guests entertained and serviced. However, a lack of coffee- and tea-making facilities in rooms is a bit disappointing. The black and white bathrooms are more modern than classically sophisticated and include shower/tub combos, hairdryers, and Bienvenue toiletries. Most rooms have pleasant views of the neighborhood.
