Local Area

The Acropolis Luxury Apartment is modeled after a hotel suite featuring luxury and comfort, but also offers the warmth of a home. The owner’s vast experience with luxury hospitality décor, equipment, and etiquette defines a new form of “home hoteling” and combines fine aesthetics with a convenient utility of space. A small family visiting Athens can be hosted comfortably in this space and each visitor will always have the sense that there is a welcoming and hospitable presence in the vicinity.

The apartment is ideally and centrally located in the heart of ancient Athens. The Acropolis and the metro station of Thissio are directly adjacent to this property. Most cultural and lifestyle points of interest in Athens, such as the Acropolis Museum, the ancient agora, and the very scenic old areas of Monastiraki and Plaka, are all well under a 10 minute walk. Summer visitors can enjoy beautiful and scenic cafés, taverns and trendy restaurants and can even enjoy the Thisio outdoor cinema (which has been rated one of the 10 best outdoor cinemas of the world)..all within 3 minutes walking distance.

Great location in comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

Although I felt that the communication with the owner could have been better, we liked the apartment and enjoyed our stay. This is a first floor unit (not ground floor), it is located inside of a gated house off of a small side street. The windows of the apartment overlook a patio area so it is quiet. The location couldn't be better for walking everywhere and we felt very safe as it is in a quiet residential area yet a block from the walkway to the Acropolis. The bed was very comfortable and the apartment is spacious. The linens and furnishings are mid range. We did not use the small kitchenette. The bathroom was basic but very nice and the apartment was clean. We requested the driver from the airport and it was he who gave us recommendations and directions as well as let us in to the property, otherwise we would have been bothered by the lack of detailed information. We arranged for the driver to pick us up also on our way out and he was great to deal with. It is a great choice for the price.

Beautiful property, excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed here and it was perfect. Location was great, lots of good places to eat nearby and close to train station to get to Piraeus for island hopping. Ms. Elly was warm hearted and welcoming. True Greek hospitality. We wish we could have stayed longer.

Wonderful Athens Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the apartment! It was immaculately clean, spacious, tastefully decorated, well equipped, and very comfortable. The location was perfect and we were within walking distance to major sites, restaurants, and shopping. There's a great bakery about a block away-try the raisin filled yeast rolls for breakfast! Panos was kind enough to arrange for a taxi to pick us up at the airport which made getting to the apartment stress free. We would recommend this apartment to couples as a great alternative to staying in a hotel room.

Many thanks to Panos and Elli for welcoming us to Athens and providing first rate accommodations!

Lovely Clean and Close to everything

  • 5 of 5

We really loved this apartment. It is less than 2/10 of a mile, 240 meters, to the Thissio Metro station, a quick walk through a park. Just as close are many very good restaurants. Walk another block and there are more restaurants with a view of the Acropolis, that is beautifully lit at night. We walked all over Athens, averaging 5 miles a day but cabs are waiting near the restaurants and metro, if you don't feel like walking.

The apartment itself is beautiful and roomy. It is also very clean. There are two units and we were able to stay in this one while my in laws took another. It was great for each of us to have our own apartments but still be close.

Ask the Owner to arrange for Christos to pick you up at the airport. His cab is very roomy and he is a wonderful guide. He also took us to Delphi and Sounio.
