Little Escapes: Coco-Mat Hotel, Athens

Coco-Mat is known for making luxurious, all-natural pillows and bedding—but did you know they also run a boutique hotel in downtown Athens? Hidden behind the Coco-Mat showroom in the chic Kolonaki neighborhood, the Coco-Mat Hotel is a calming urban getaway boasting cozy, Scandi-styled rooms. Each room is decked out in Coco-Mat’s exclusive beddings, including their trademark four-layer mattresses and a menu of twelve therapeutic pillows to customize your bed with (lavender-scented, anyone?). Breakfast is served in the basement honesty bar, complete with fresh eggs, superfoods, and an array of classic Greek bites such as zucchini pie and halva. Complete it with dinner at their elegant Roof Garden with a panoramic view of the city and the Acropolis. The hotel also loans out Coco-Mat’s signature wooden bicycles for free; perfect for cruising around the neighborhood, which is loaded with bars, restaurants, and small art galleries.
