Other guest amenities to be offered at the hotel will include fully equipped gym, four spa treatment rooms, indoor and outdoor pool, 1,300m2 of conference and events facilities, including three meeting rooms.
Slated to open in 2024, the hotel will mark Curio Collection by Hilton’s first hotel in mainland Greece.
Hilton will also debut its Hampton by Hilton brand with Hampton by Hilton Piraeus Mikrolimano in Kastella district.
The 83-room hotel will feature four meeting rooms adding up to 120m2 space, a 24-hour business centre, fitness facilities.
The property will undergo $6.2m (€5.5m) renovation prior to opening.
Hilton Europe, Middle East and Africa development senior vice-president Patrick Fitzgibbon said: “Over the past 12 months we have expanded our portfolio in key resort destinations in Greece with four new hotels.
“This latest agreement will allow us to build on our longstanding legacy in Athens, introducing two exciting brands to the market. Curio Collection by Hilton and Hampton by Hilton are two of our fastest-growing brands in Europe, accounting for nearly half of all pipeline hotels.
“Piraeus’ thriving port and Kifisia’s neighbourhood of designer stores, gourmet restaurants and international company headquarters are ideal locations to bring those brands to the Athenian market.”
