Fresh Hotel, opened in 2004, in one area, that went through several stages, in Sophocleous Str., near the Central Market, opposite the first Gallery of Rebecca Camhi. It was the era that everything seemed different, the expectations were high and everyone invested in this part of Athens hoping that it would become the new Marais, the truth is that the two locations have similarities between them, such as they are multicultural, colors and perfumes but also they have basic historical and structural differences. Thus, the Central Market and all parallel and perpendicular streets may not be the axes leading to Greek Marais, however the Fresh Hotel, stays there all these years, with high aesthetic and design, with several art works by young artists in the rooms, with great views of the Acropolis from the roof-garden and truly the most complete and serious breakfast(!) For all these reasons, is the choice for many foreign artists, designer or architects as a place of residence.
