Introducing THE ILISIAN: A New Destination Hotel In Athens

THE ILISIAN, an illustrious urban sanctuary unveiled by Ionian Hotel Enterprises, emerges today as Athens’ new beacon of luxury and culture.

Occupying the venerable edifice that hosted Hilton Athens for over fifty years, THE ILISIAN has been meticulously reimagined from a mere hotel into a multifarious haven.

This innovative destination harmoniously fuses a hotel and opulent residences under the prestigious Conrad and Waldorf Astoria banners, a lifestyle members’ club, epicurean delights, vibrant entertainment, holistic wellness, and sophisticated shopping.

This creates a nexus of experiences, weaving together the essence of modern Athens with the wider world.


Drawing its name from the historic Ilisos River and the surrounding Ilisia neighborhood, THE ILISIAN signifies a perpetual bond with the city’s heritage and its denizens.

It exudes a cosmopolitan flair intrinsic to its identity, encapsulating experiences that epitomize both the authentic and contemporary spirit of Athens.

With profound respect for the city’s cultural legacy, THE ILISIAN aspires to amalgamate global trends with Athenian traditions, fostering a gathering place for locals and visitors alike.
