18 Micon Street has emerged a year after its opening as the hands-down favorite for plugged-in visitors to the Greek capital and as the first hotel in Athens to has become a member of Hip Hotels. The hotel’s easygoing, industrial chic vibe and prized location in Psirri, one of the buzziest neighborhoods in the Greek capital—yet within walking distance of the Acropolis—made it a natural fit for the pioneering Hip Hotels association.
About HIP Hotels
Of 18 Micon Street’s inclusion in HIP Hotels, the group’s general manager Charlie Fallman says, “18 Micon Street captures the very essence of what a HIP Hotel is: plenty of personality and unconventional details whose ambience remains with you long after your stay has come to an end.” HIP Hotels is an iconic collection of hotels that encourage you to pack your bags and escape. HIP stands for Highly Individual Places–encapsulated by each and every property on the collection’s website (hiphotels.com). Individualized means unique, characterful, charming, and off the beaten track. These are hotels that represent the reason why we travel–to explore the unknown, discover hidden gems and make travel a memorable experience. HIP Hotels was founded in the 1990s by award-winning photographer Herbert Ypma and has sold over two million books in more than 15 languages.
