After a journey through the city of Athens and treated with care by the hotel’s staff, the Christmas tree arrived at the hotel. It owns a special place in the heart of the hotel’s lobby and in the heart of all Athenians.

 

It took more than 7 hours to decorate the tree. The hotels’ staff and valued guests joint forces and worked together to bring to life this years’ festive spirit.

On a December afternoon, the Christmas tree lights were lit and so did the festive spirit of the city of Athens. The hotel’s lobby was filled with the sound of Christmas carols, sang by a choir of young children.
