SoHoAthine,an authentic design apartment is located in the historic centre of Athens, in Thissio, one of the most upcoming and authentic neighborhoods of the city and now one of the liveliest hip spots of the metropolis city.

Here, time seems to have stopped 200 years ago, when under the oppressive and age-long domain of the Ottomans, Athens had become a small village on the hillside of the Acropolis. Nowadays Thissio area is still made of narrow streets, small houses as ones in the neoclassical period of the 1800, minute Byzantine churches and a large number of ancient archaeological sites. This area has been built on the ancient foundations and the streets you walk along are the same once used by inhabitants such as Pericles, Sophocles and Plato.

You will absolutely enjoy our beautifully renovated luxury apartment. An authentic design made of Scandinavian simple, elegant & functional home products and Mediterranean stylish life concept, including charm of taste, color and spirit will make your stay in Athens unforgettable!

Either you are having a cultural walk, a culinary adventure by foot or a shopping voyage through the open air markets you will find the location of our rental in is the oldest inhabited area of the city very charming.

Enjoy a taste of Mediterenian cuisine with our magnifique chef and learn more about the spices and herbs used in the Greek kitchen since the ancient time.That's not all.Enjoy discount in the near by winery cava shop or sign up for our ''This is My Athens'' tour and make our Athens your Athens! Go beyond the traditional guide book sights and places of interest.Let an Athenian take you to that special neighborhood bakery, or show you some great neighborhoods along the Southern coast and the breathtaking promenades. Let an Athens local tell you all about that great restaurant near the Acropolis that makes that must-try Greek dish. Go shopping with a local Athenian that knows all those great little shops for special handmade souvenirs.We're getting personal and we love it!

Stay with us, live like Athenians!

About The Athens Team/Anna

To be successful in your professional life,you have got to love what you do,you must become at least good if not excellent at it and you have got to go the extra mile,deliver much more than you promise and much more than is expected of you.That is my personal view.I enjoy the journy as a property owner,every step of it.Everything I do for my guests I do with passion and I do large.I don't fear failure.I am adventurous with everything and I do take risks,after all,life is risky too,isn't it?

Why The Athens Team/Anna chose Athens

Thissio ....There is something a very unique about this area where the property is.Could it be the magic of the Ancient time or the color of today's bohemic life in the area?I am still trying to discover the great connection these two worlds are having up to this date.

Anna,

Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful apartment. Everything is so nice and comfortable-we felt right at home.

Ones again ,thank you for the hospitality!

Great apartment in a quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this apartment was excellent. The apartment is neat and clean and has everything one might need including a washing machine. Anna and her team responded very quickly and were very accommodating to special request and even arranged a taxi ride for us to the airport. We have used HomeAway and similar organizations to rent apartments in multiple countries, and all our rentals have been good, but Anna, her team and her apartment are exceptional.

And so is the location. It is in a quiet neighborhood just a few blocks from the pedestrian way and the metro. We only used the metro once as almost everything we wanted to see is within walking distance. One can walk around the Acropolis past most of the ancient sites, museums and shops and be back at the apartment in under an hour. There is a grocery store, a couple of bakeries and multiple coffee shops and restaurants within a few minutes of the apartment. And the views of the Acropolis from this side of the city are the absolute best, especially in the evening from a rooftop restaurant.

The most unique place we found not on the usual tourist stops is the Central Market just a few blocks north of the Acropolis.

All in all, I would recommend this apartment to my family and friends.

Elegant Flat in Quiet Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the SoHoAthine flat during the Athens' heat wave. It kept us cool and sane! It is a lovely apartment and we would go back in a heart beat. Anna and her team took good care of us.

It was perfect. Location is great.

  • 5 of 5

Anna and her team were great. They took care to make sure our stay was perfect. She is the best ever and we have travelled the world A LOT. The location is great and we walked everywhere including to Glyfada (we walk a lot). The apartment was just what we needed. We would go back in a heartbeat and would recommend to friends highly. We might even go back in a month for an additional stay. Can't say enough good about it. Dan

Modern chic apartment close to everything Athens

  • 5 of 5

Anna was a fantastic host from booking through stay. My wife and I were on a holiday and spent some our time in Anna's flat. Wonderful apartment, walking distance to shops, bars, attractions. Great place plus great location plus great host equals 5 stars.

Fantastic location and best rental manager!

  • 5 of 5

Location! Location! Location! Anna is phenomenal and her attention to detail is wonderful. We had two heavy bags that she carried up three flights of stairs for us, and then insisted on making our reservations for a taxi service to get us to our cruise harbor. When we initially contacted her with a change of flight reservations, she happily made airport pick-up arrangements for us. The pictures of the place are EXACTLY what everything looks like! The location is so close to the Hop-On/Hop-Off bus line that you can easily get around Athens...and you are so close to the markets and the Acropolis that you won't believe how convenient everything is. The apartment is well-stocked and you won't need a thing to cook with since Anna has everything ready for you! I recommend this to anyone who is seeking a quiet place to stay in Athens that is so close to the major "must-see's."

I honestly can't say enough about Anna as she is the most accommodating host I've encountered on Home Away!

Located on a south-west side of the Acropolis,just a five minutes from the Ancient Agora and Filopappos Hill, the SoHo Athine is offering you a very pleasant accommodation in the Actual Centre of Old Athens. The view from the Philopappos Hill at sunset overlooking the Acropolis is something spectacular. Our apartment is just a few steps away!

Under the Athens Observatory,surrounded by Thissio buildings of the 1930s and on a walking distance to all major historical monuments, the Ancient Agora, Stoa of Attalos,Tower Winds, Plaka and Monastiraki, the excellent location of our apartment will give a great value to all those who are seeking for green and quiet area but still on a very close distance to restaurants, bars, cafes, open air cinemas, live theatres, art studios, galleries and museums.
