Allegory Boutique Hotel

Last updated: 30 July, 2023

Just inside of St. Athanasius Gate and close to every sight in the Old Town, is this 2018 winner of Europe’s Historic Hotel awards.

It’s indistinguishable from the cluster of medieval townhouses surrounding it; sensitive restoration has even left the original wooden beams standing.

Each room sports an original painting; breakfast is both freshly cooked and tailored to your appetites; every bathroom has a rain shower, and the family suite sports a private full-blown hammam.

Plus, it comes with its own lovers’ legend of the ‘Blue Jewel’ which you can read about there: a Greek best-seller was based on it.
