Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Central Athens - SoHoAthine

Free WIFI,hand made herbal products,olive oil...a taste of true Athens!

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?

The Athens Team/Anna purchased this apartment in 2008

Why The Athens Team/Anna chose Central 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.

What makes this apartment unique

We have a bunch of personalized services that can make your stay in Athens simply wonderful.We,the Athens team,also,listen to our guest's demands and work with them on any special request they may have.We're getting personal and we love it!

Guestbook comments from the owner

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. My only suggestion is a small one-a guest notebook would be nice .That way guests can write down their favorite restaurants/activities/suggestions, ect.and you and future guests can read it and get ideas! Ones again ,thank you for the hospitality!

Great Apartment in a Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was really nice, very clean, and in a great location! We were able to take a short walk and see the beautiful Acropolis! Anna was a great help in arranging a driver to pick us up from the airport as well as take us back. The apartment was a nice size and the bed was the most comfortable bed we slept in during our month-long trip throughout Europe. We were able to check in early and leave our luggage while we went sightseeing, which was very helpful! We would definitely stay in this apartment again and recommend it to anyone staying in Athens!

nice clean great location

  • 5 of 5

the apartment was very clean and modern. the location was excellent and Anna was very helpful. they have a car service to/from airport which was great and she set all that up which made our arrival in Athens much less stressful. We were very close to all the sights. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to travel to Athens.

Complete in all aspects

  • 5 of 5

After staying in several apartments in Athens I didn't expect to find ideal location, new beautiful spaces and super complete furnishings in one location.

Then came the staff, attentive to every detail. abundant AC, a necessity in July. You need nothing except your toothbrush and toothpaste when you come here. Rich nightlife a block away but apartment is located on a quiet street,yet very close to antiquities, perfect. I will not stay in Athens at another location. This property makes Athens a much more appealing venue.

An hotel room where I stayed years ago is now, on special at 115 e per night.

This is, somehow less expensive with three times the space and finished out in all high end details and products including appliances. Underpriced for what is here.

Beautiful apartment in perfect location, and great service

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the apartment for 3 nights and everything was perfect. The apartment is spacious and beautiful compared to most options in the heart of Athens; the amenities are modern and the place is decorated with style. The location is perfect, only a few minutes walk from the Thissio side of the pedestrian area surrounding the Acropolis. We liked this side of the Acropolis much better than Plaka and Monastiraki because it is not as crowded and you don't get harassed by restaurant people trying to convince you that their menu is the best in town. You can easily walk to the Parthenon, Acropolis Museum, as well as Monastiraki and Plaka neighborhoods. We also walked to Syntagma and to the Lycabettus funicular, so we didn't need to take any taxi or bus/metro during our stay in Athens. Service was also excellent: not only Anna arranged for our transfers from/to the airport while we stayed at the apartment, but she also helped us out after we left this rental and moved to another one during another part of our stay in Athens. I highly recommend this apartment ant the 'SoHo Athine' team (especially Anna).

Lovely place and great location

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful well maintained, modern place with great location. Enough off the beaten past to escape the tourist scene but we easily walked (with an 8 y.o. and 9 y.o) to most of the major sites - the Acropolis, Acropolis museum, Agora, Adrianou, Monstrastiki area, Temple of Zeus, etc etc. Pull out sofa is a little "hard" as a bed (as you'd expect of most Ikea type fold outs) but fine for children. Recommend making a reservation (reservation a must) for dinner at Filistron - amazing view of Acropolis and city from rooftop.

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.
