Hi. We have several apartments in Athens. We offer them to travellers who are interested in the cultural and artistic pursuits on offer in our amazing city, Athens.
We are interested in food, art, modern history and what is new and exciting.
We provide full kitchens for cooking, a wonderful art collection and many books on Modern Greece.
We found this accommodation lived up to the advertised promises. The unit was very clean, light and pleasant to be in. I loved sitting on our little balcony watch the world go by. We were a close walk to the busy touristy bits but felt tucked away in an area that felt like a very authentic slice of Greek life. There were some very nice restaurants close by including the "home cooking" style that Lia recommended. It took us only 15 minutes to walk up to the Acropolis.
You will receive very personalised service from the managers at Boutique Athens. We appreciated being met at the airport by Mihalis for the same cost as any taxi fare into Athens. Lia met us and showed us around with helpful hints and recommendations. She was interested in our plans following Athens and suggested what to look out for in other places we were visiting.
Any queries and concerns were very quickly and obligingly dealt with. Thanks Lia and Costas.
A great place in Psirri, halfway between Omonia and Monostiraki Metro stations and just a couple of blocks from the main Athens green market. Great roof garden, comfortable bead and bath, spacious living/dining/kitchen combo, two nice balconies overlooking the street for breakfast or evening coffee. Staff are both fiiendly and accommodating. They meet you on arrival and, if you like, will give a quick walking tour of the neighbourhood, so you know where to find groceries, bakery, wine, etc.
We stayed with a family of 3 in this splendidly renovated apartment. Great ameneties, careful renovations with stylish touched made us feel truly at home.
It was simple to reach reall everything on foot. The lively neighourhood proved essential to feel to be in a bit of "real Athens". Aside from the beautiful roof garden, the exceptional host, the great introduction and the range of useful and original tips for our stay made EP 16 probably the essential ingredient for some great 4 days.
By the way we stayed in Ep3, but I think it was more or less the same. The only desadvantage was that we had to go down two floors and up three floors to reach the great roof top terrace. The apartment was just perfect! Interesting neigbourhood, beautiful city!

The apartment was in a great location to get the true atmosphere of Athens and to visit the sites by foot. On arrival at the apartment was meet by Dean, who gave us a tour of the neighbourhood and pointed out some fab places to visit, which we probably would not have found ourselves, along with recommendations of where to eat. The apartment itself was great. Well maintained, clean with all the facilities required. The roof top garden was lovely a definate plus! As a group of friends we have been to many places, but all agreed that Athens was among the top short breaks we have taken. This also had a lot to do with the location, apartment and the friendly people of Athens, including Dean oh and lets not forget Bella!!
We loved our stay. We are a family of five so we rented two apartments together and it was absolutely perfect. They are beautifully finished, spotlessly clean and everything you might need is right at hand. The owner could not have been more helpful and we sincerely appreciated the local tour as we arrived. Knowing all the best spots and being introduced to a few of the shop/restaurant keepers made us feel very welcome and comfortable. The neighbourhood is certainly a mix of old and new but we liked that. The roof terrace is absolutely amazing. All around one of the best holidays we have had as a family. Can't wait to go back!
We are situated in the heart of old Athens.
You can walk to Plaka, The Acropolis, The Ancient Agora, Keramikos and all of the sites of interest within 10 minutes.
Our area, Psirri, is also the area of the old artisans. Here you will find ecclesiastical candle makers, leather sandal makers, gramophone repairers and all manner of shops and stores that have existed for a hundred years.
Painters, sculptors, actors, video artists and performance artists have made Psirri their home. There are at least 8 small modern art galleries within five minutes walk of our apartments.
Young entrepreneurs have also invested in Psirri, creating groovy cafes, bars, roof top restaurants and art spaces. These new places are mixed in with the traditional tavernas and 'ouzeria' of old Athens.
Our apartments, known as EP16, are in the best possible location from which to explore all that is great in Athens.
You may also access various beaches by public transport. Nearest beach is Kalamaki.
