About Aris

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

Why Aris chose Central Athens

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...

What makes this house unique

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.

Aris is a terrific host and the property is right smack in the middle of the action in Athens, everything is accessible by foot. Aris and Spiro are justifiably proud of their country and go out of their way to make you feel welcome, this has been the best rental property experience ever. Only thing I would change? The front door is a pain to lock/unlock, simple fix. Thanks Aris, you rock!!!

Perfect house in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5
We sit here on our last night in this wonderful house drink a glass of beautiful Greek red wine. Our home away from home is just perfect.
Spiros picked us up at the airport and brought home where Aris welcomed us and gave us a guided tour of the area. What wonderfully friendly people with a wealth of local knowledge. We cannot speak more highly of this home and these people. You will not be disappointed if you stay here for more reasons than we can right here. Thank you Aris and we look forward to coming back to Atherns and your beautiful house.

Spiro and Aris are amazing.

  • 5 of 5
I can not even begin to describe what a fantastic duo these two are. From the moment Spiro picked us up this became one of the greatest travel experiences of our lives. Spiro is a warm and loving man who loves to share the history, food and culture of Greece with you any chance he gets. As for the apartment, this is one of the nicest most beautifully decorated places my wife and I have ever stayed. Prior to this apartment my wife and I had been traveling for three weeks staying at an assortment of 5 star hotels and not a single one of them was even close to the beauty of this apartment. Aris was amazing after our arrival he even walked us around the whole neighborhood and pointed out the points of interest and the best shops and restaurant's. Aris is one of the warmest and kindest men we have ever meet. Tops by far is Spiro. Please spend a day with this man showing you around Athens he has lived there for over 50 years and he will show you parts of Athens that tourists never get to experience. For the first time in over 25 years of travel I actually cried when I left Greece. You are crazy not to rent this place the cost alone is half what you would spend on a hotel in fact friends of ours were staying in a $400 a night hotel and they were blown away by our apartment. I promise Aris and Spiros that my wife and I will be back before the end of the year. Thank you both for the best part of our vacation by FAR.

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!
