I studied cinema in Canada and I am both Greek and Canadian citizen. I love architecture and I have renovated 16 houses in Athens. For 15 years I had a company, which made pieces of art from fier forgat, blown glass, marble and wood.

Aris purchased this house in 2006

Because is one of the few neoclassical houses (early 1900's), which haven't been destroyed. So I saved it and I totally renovated it, to all it's previous glory... Another reason was the amazing positive energy that comes out of this house and the area around Acropolis...

Griffin House offers you the convenience of being very close to all of Athens major sites, and a comfortable home in a very small and quiet street just fifty meters from the Acropolis museum, a hundred meters from the Acropolis subway station, and two hundred meters from Acropolis.

The house is located on a very quiet street and sleeps from 2 to 6 guests. Please note that rates start at 100-120 euro/night for 2 guests, 130-160 euro for 4 guests, and 160-200 euro for 6 guests (low-high season), making this a FANTASTIC alternative to other 5 stars hotels.

The house is a great option for 2 or 3 couples traveling together, offering each couple their own bedroom and private bathroom, with a spacious living room and kitchen, along with a 50 sq. meter private roof garden.

Beautiful home, wonderful owner

  • 5 of 5
We arrived very early, and Aris was more than willing to allow us to drop our things and use the WC while the house was still being cleaned. He then gave us a tour of everything we needed to know about the neighborhood. He was such a gracious host, and we couldn't have been happier with our stay. The location is perfect, just 2 blocks from the entrance to the new Acropolis Museum. I was quite surprised how walkable Central Athens was, and this home was the perfect location as a starting point.

What am amazing place to stay and host!

  • 5 of 5
Everything all the other reviews say about Griffin House and Aris are true. We were picked up at the airport by Spiros, arranged by Aris, which was a terrific start. Then, being met at the house by Aris and shown every detail of the house and the neighborhood made us immediately feel at home. Within a few steps in various directions are a bakery, a fruit market, a small variety market (local meats, cheeses, yogurt, milk, etc.), ATMs, and an "Anytime" market that has pretty much everything you could need and is open (as the name suggests) 24 hours. And, the kitchen was thoughtfully stocked with beer, wine, fresh fruit, coffee and a few other items.

The location within Athens couldn't be any better. It is literally steps to the Acropolis Museum and easy walking distance to everywhere you would want to go. We never used a taxi or public transportation. We rented a car as we were leaving Athens, and the rental companies are all within a 5 minute walk of the house.

The house itself is fantastic, decorated beautifully and supplied with everything you can think of. We took advantage of the washing machine, and the "dryer" (drying racks), which of course brought on a torrential downpour! But the clothes actually didn't get wetter from the rain, thanks to the huge table umbrella on the rooftop garden. The rooftop garden is a fantastic place to hang out!

Access to the upstairs bedroom and the rooftop garden is either by very steep metal stairs outside or a very tight spiral staircase inside. It was fine for us, but I could imagine that it would be difficult for some to manage either of these. Our duffel bags have backpack straps, so we were able to put them on our backs and get them upstairs. Very large bags would be difficult but easily worked around by bringing the contents upstairs in smaller batches.

The only thing that would have improved the stay for our family of 5 (including 3 young adult "kids") would be if one of the rooms had 2 small beds (or a large bed that could be split into 2 or bunked) instead of 1 large bed, but we made do by having one of our kids sleep on the sofa in the living room, which is not a sleeper. It would actually be great if one of the sofas were a futon.

Stay here! You won't regret it! The stay was absolutely amazing, and if we return to Athens, we will definitely return to Griffin House and Aris' hospitality!

Aris and Griffin House exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 6 spent the weekend in Athens and could not have picked a better place to stay. Griffin House is within walking distance to all the major sites... we didn't take a cab/bus once! The home is comfortable, clean, bright, beautiful, unique and full of amazing artwork collected or created by the owner. The patio is fantastic for morning coffee or evening happy hour, and even though the house is so close to all the buzz, it was very quiet at night for sleeping.

We cannot thank Aris enough for his hospitality. He offered to show us around the neighborhood, and then accompanied us to an amazing restaurant with amazing views to teach us all about Greek food! One of our favorite memories from our trip!

If you are heading to Athens, I can guarantee you will love staying at Griffin House. Thank you for wonderful experience in Athens, Aris!

BEST HOUSE IN ATHENS!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and his brother and sister just came back from our trip to Greece and we stayed in this beautiful and perfect house for 4 nights. I don't know where to get started! This Place and its owner ""Aris"" definitely made our stay in Athens so much more pleasant and unforgettable. Aris made the entire reservation process so easy and smooth. He arranged the Airport transfers with the best and nicest Taxi driver who showed us around Athens for a couple of days as we asked him. Aris greeted us at his lovely house like we were old friends. His sweet, caring and hospitable nature made us right at home. His house is so very homey and comfortable and beautifuly and tastefully decorated that we felt right at home as soon as we arrived. The terrace is a SUPERB place to just chill and have a breakfast or dinner and enjoy his beautiful Plants and feel relaxed. AAAHHH , the Beds are so so so comfortable that made the fatigue of the long hours of travel and also our daily walkings, disappear! The mattresses and the piloows are THE MOST COMFORTABLE ones I have ever slept on, ( and we travel a lot and have stayed at a lot of different vacation rentals and hotels). If I could, I would buy them and bring them back to the States! Aris is so very thoughtful and mindful of ensuring a comfortable and perfect stay for his guests that his house is fully stocked with anything and everything you may need during your stay! Its like a little mini supermarket! The Coffee machine gives you the best Coffee! The Kitchenis fully stocked with al spices, and anything you may need to do a little cooking. And above all, THE LOCATION!!!! It can not be more central! Walking distance to eveything and everywhere! DO NOT NEED A CAR! Aris showed us THE BEST BAKERY which is just a few steps away! I would get the most delicious freshley baked breads and bring it back to the house for our beautiful breakfasts or dinners on the terrace! Aris also showed the best local restaurants and Taverns to eat at which were all the BEST suggestions. All in all, by staying here, we not only gained an incredibly pleasant memory, but also a great friend for life! Everything about this house is ABSOLUTELY PERFECT! DO NOT MISS IT! THE BEST HOUSE WITH THE BEST LOCATION, COMFORT, AND OWNER. WHAT ELSE CAN YOU ASK FOR??!!

A wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Griffinhouse, located a few blocks from the Acropolis, this Spring for a week. The experience was one of the most rewarding of all of our visits to Europe. The home is spacious and beautiful. The proprietor, Aris, made us feel totally at home. On our first day he gave us a walking tour of the best places to eat authentic Greek food in the neighborhood. He purchased a delicious birthday cake for my wife. Aris was an absolute delight who took care of all our needs. His taxi driver friend, Spiros, met us at the airport and ended up taking us on marvelous day trips to Delphi and ancient Corinth. For a comfortable and relaxing plunge into the culture of Athens and surrounding areas, we highly recommend this place.
