Most of what you need to know is in the name. The Modernist Athens leaves the classical history to the rest of the city, and provides its guests with a remarkably coherent vision of modern luxury-boutique hospitality — which, of course, owes much to the capital-m Modernism of the middle of the last century. It’s fitting, then, that the Modernist should begin with a Fifties building: the former Canadian embassy in the upscale neighborhood of Kolonaki.

It’s a solid, sober building, now finished in minimalist black and gray, a mood that persists in the interiors but is livened by subtle accents in metallic colors. Its 38 rooms vary widely in size and plan, from the truly compact S rooms on through to the top-floor XLs, each with an outdoor hot tub on a terrace with a 180° view of the city. Some feature balconies and/or record players, while all come with espresso machines and Physis Laboratory bath products.

Food and beverage service is limited, in classic European urban-boutique style, to breakfast, drinks, and a light daytime menu. The Modernist is no hermetically sealed resort, after all, but a luxe pied-à-terre in a delightful city-center neighborhood; you’re within walking distance of no end of restaurants, bars, art galleries, and shops, and the city life is key to the hotel’s appeal.
