Hotels in Berlin
Berlin hotels are your launchpad to a melting pot of cool music, global flavours, and forward-thinking attitudes. A must for the art geek, the foodie and the night owl. And then of course there's the iconic Christmas markets, serving up the scrummiest Glühwein.
Experience Berlin's best at Park Inn by Radisson. Right in the heart of Berlin-Mitte, you can soak up panoramic views of the city skyline - cocktail or mocktail in hand. You’re also just a 10-minute walk from Alexanderplatz (the "Alex", as it’s called by Berliners). This vibrant square is one of the most visited places in Berlin. You could see the World Time Clock, dine in the TV Tower (the tallest building in Germany) and grab a currywurst in town.
Tucked away from the city buzz between Alexanderplatz and Potsdamer Platz, Titanic Comfort Mitte is your own quiet hideaway. Far from bars and busy streets, with the Spittelmarkt metro station right at the doorstep! You’ve also got plenty of sightseeing opportunities close by, from Museum Island (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) Museum Island to Brandenburg Gate.
And then there’s the Upper Room Hotel. Located in the heart of West Berlin, just steps from the Kurfürstendamm (the pearl of Berlin shopping), the famous Kaiser-Wilhelm Memorial Church and Berlin Zoo. Need to zip around? S-Bahn station is just a hop, skip, and a jump away. Oh, and inside, it's all about grand staircases, marble walls, chandeliers, and some fancy stained glass windows.
Ready to embrace Germany's vibrant capital? These Berlin hotels are your ideal starting point!

The capital of Greece and one of the oldest cities in the world, Athens is a fascinating destination where ancient landmarks jostle together with bustling neighbourhoods and huge cosmopolitan nightclubs.
A city break in Athens promises plenty of history, culture, nightlife, and unforgettable sights that you’ll treasure the memory of forever. Explore the city’s rich past at the Acropolis, browse the boutiques in Plaka, then round off your day at the spectacular Odeon of Herodes Atticus theatre.
Things to do
There’s something to suit every holidaymaker in Athens. History fans will love exploring ancient ruins, like the world-famous Acropolis of Athens and the Parthenon. The Temple of Olympian Zeus is another must, while the Ancient Agora of Athens is similarly impressive.
Enjoy modern Athenian culture when you explore beautiful and bustling local neighbourhoods. There are plenty of shops and traditional eateries scattered around. At the same time, the nightlife is sure to meet even the highest expectations of the Greek capital city.
Athens is an ideal destination for keen historians and those looking to immerse themselves in ancient culture. Start at the Acropolis, the ancient citadel of Athens, where several ancient remains remain for visitors to explore. The Parthenon is the most iconic, while the modern Acropolis Museum is the perfect place to learn about the area. You should also try and make time to see Ancient Agora, the heart of the city centuries ago, and the Temple of Olympian Zeus.
Athens doesn’t have many green spaces, which makes Stavros Niarchos Park even more special. Its landscaped paths, children’s playground, and proximity to the ocean make this park an ideal place to cool off.
Like many major cities, Athens is home to several neighbourhoods, attracting diverse residents and visitors to the one that suits them best.
Start with Plaka, a busy tourist-favourite at the centre of old Athens. It’s a beautiful area to stroll around, getting lost in small lanes among rows of pastel buildings. Next, Kolonaki is a wealthy residential neighbourhood with lots of luxurious bars, restaurants, and shops.
Syntagma is Athens’ political heart, while Monastiraki is famous for its flea market and bustling narrow lanes. Gazi-Kerameikos is the city’s youthful art, design, and nightlife district, transforming to accommodate local and tourist revellers when the sun goes down.
Searching for something quieter? Head to Thissio, a beautiful residential neighbourhood with plenty of independent eateries and shops.
Food & drink
Greek food uses typical Mediterranean ingredients, with many unique elements and dishes you won’t find anywhere else. When in Athens, expect plenty of grilled meat and fish, delicious fresh salads, olive oil, and flatbreads. Try traditional meze, selecting small plates including various dips, olives, bread, vegetables, meat, and cheese. Moussaka is another must, with layers of aubergine, minced lamb, tomato, and spices. Charcoal-grilled meat and fish is always a good option in Athens, often served with fresh tomatoes, yoghurt, and flatbreads.
In the mood for something sweet? Athenians have plenty to offer, including flaky filo pastry desserts sweetened with honey and basted in olive oil. Grab some traditional baklava for a perfect end to any meal, or enjoy local honey on Greek yoghurt for breakfast.
If you’re interested in experiencing Athens’ vibrant nightlife, you’ll have plenty of choices no matter what you’re into. Enjoy a luxurious evening of dinner and cocktails or party like a local in a lesser-known bar or nightclub.
Koukaki is ideal for floating between sophisticated bars, while Gazi is a must for fans of super clubbing. Psyrri is a trendy, gentrified area with endless bars and music spots. Patsion is home to one of Athens’ oldest bars, Au Revoir Bar, a must if you’re exploring local history.
Athens Riviera is the coastal area south of the city, where visitors can enjoy sunbathing and swimming along the beautiful shore. The sheltered coastline is fringed with palm trees and dotted with parasols and sunbeds. There are beach bars and clubs where holidaymakers can grab a drink or bite to eat and settle in for a comfy few hours in the sun or shade.
The beach is just 20 minutes drive out of Athens, and while you might not want to hire a car for your city break, many taxis and busses can get you there for just a few Euros.
