The rooms overlook the buzzy streets of the shopping triangle, and the suites have a view of the Acropolis. Housed in a wonderfully restored 19th century building, the Blend Hotel promises a stay which is both designee and relaxing. The stylish and cool Folk, the all-day restaurant on the ground floor, proposes a playful cuisine without borders – that hearty Buddha bowl with falafel, avocado, red cabbage and beetroot hummus is a bright example.
