The Fresh boldly mixes rich natural materials, like oak and walnut wood, with bright pinks and oranges, making it a clean-lined sanctuary from the flurry of downtown Athens just outside its doors. The nine-story building, with a pool and bar sporting a view of the Acropolis on the top floor, welcomes its guests into a lobby extending over two floors that gives you a taste of the funkiness to come upstairs. The 133 guestrooms, six of them with private, small Zen gardens, are temples to clean lines with sleek, modernist spaces broken up by bright slashes of orange, pink, and green against mauve and beige.
Furniture and fittings at Fresh, including Tolomeo lamps by Artemide, Starck’s transparent polycarbonate Eros chairs by Kartell, and Urquiola’s Lens tables by B&B Italia, are offset against other light oak pieces. A generous fireplace that is surrounded by an imposing black wall, meanwhile, stands opposite the reception created by an attractive pink glass box.
