Greece is the Mediterranean’s ultimate culinary paradise and Athens’ busting and constantly growing restaurant scene has -alongside the tourism industry- helped the country slowly emerge from the financial crisis.

If you’re travelling to the Greek capital brace yourselves for the most unique gastronomic experience that combines the best of both worlds.

Foodies will as of this spring have their own haven, a boutique hotel dedicated to offering one-of-a-kind culinary trips in the heart of the city.

Located at 23 Mitropoleos street, just a breath away from Syntagma Square, ‘Ergon House Athens’ will submerge guests into a traditional Greek hospitality experience.

The brainchild of Ergon Foods, ‘Ergon House Athens’ will acquaint foodies with products from small Greek producers and take them to awarded and less known, local restaurants as well as the food market where they will be able to purchase meat, fish, and other fresh products.

The hotel, which also has a funky rooftop bar will feature 38 rooms.

“We’ve conceived a spectacular marketplace, a modern-day agora with a constellation of greengrocers, a butcher’s, fishmonger’s and bakery, a delicatessen and roastery, along with a bar and restaurant which celebrate the best of Greek cuisine culture. And we have expanded on the unique experience of an epicurean boutique hotel by creating cool common ground in which to cook and lounge, a gym for good conscience, as well as a roof terrace planted with olive trees that has unbeatable views of the city,” says management.

The concept belongs to Ergon Foods’ owners and brothers Thomas and George Douzis  from Thessaloniki, who launched their very successful business back in 2011 with the goal of promoting Hellenic premium quality products across Greece and abroad.
