Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in 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 Attica

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!

Excellent apartment, perfect host

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in 20+ apartments in ten countries and Anna is the finest host we have had! From my initial contact one year ago, she was very accessible: answering questions, arranging transportation, providing local suggestions for dining, and accommodating our needs.

The apartment is spectacular, the photos only hint at its elegance. Reasonably priced and on a quiet residential street in the Thissio area, it has a fully-equipped kitchen with nice-sized refrigerator and dishwasher. If we would have wanted to cook full meals we could have, spices in the pantry. On the back patio are clothes lines for quick drying the laundry.

She also introduced us to the next-door wine shop owner and his daughter upon our arrival to ensure we had a go-to place for quality wine (and we did). A delicious bakery shop is around the corner (opens at 6:30). Restaurants and coffee shops are within 5 minutes walk, as is the promenade to Ancient Agora and the Parthenon. Thissio Metro station is 5 minutes away. Monastirki Square is 10 minutes along a pleasant pedestrian walk.

After a 20-hour journey to get to Athens we were happy to be met by Sotiris, a taxi driver arranged by Anna; we used his company four times during our time in Athens for transportation to/from airport and marina. Anna met us at the apartment explained all the appliances' usage (including efficient easy-to-use washing machine) and marked a local map with her suggestions for drinks or meals. In the middle of our six-day stay, we spent a week on a private yacht and Anna stored our luggage that wasn't needed for that time. She also was in contact with the yacht's skipper to ensure she would meet us for the second part of our stay.

We felt as if we were met by a friend upon our arrival in Athens; after our stay, we knew we had made a lifelong friend. I heartily recommend staying here for anyone traveling to Athens.

A local for a week in Athens !

  • 5 of 5

A perfectly located apartment for our week in this ancient city ! We were able walk everywhere! Though only a 3 minute walk to the busy tourist route, the accommodation was very quiet and situated in the old neighbourhood of Thissios, where you can live and mix with the friendly locals!

The thoughtful decorated apartment was spotless, with all modern appliances complete with reliable and fast wi-fi. Transfer to and from the airport was stress free, and though Anna was away, we were warmly greeted on arrival. ( Anna, herself, was always a quick email away, to meet any requests or answer queries promptly. ) Having our own delightful nest in Athens made our stay truly memorable. Thank you so much Anna !

Super

Terrific location, easy to get to port and Airport by Metro ( 7 min. very pleasant walk or less), very close to great supermarkets and amazing bakeries. A beautiful, very artfully decorated apartment too, and very quiet.

Very new, clean, ultra-modern and in a good location

  • 5 of 5

The property is in a very convenient location close to the Acropolis and Thissio metro station.

It's also in a quiet street and close to a small convenience store.

The street view (apartment street entrance) doesn't do the property justice as the apartment itself has been recently refurbished in a very modern style.

Appliances and equipment were as stated in the advertisement.

Holiday in Athens

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at SohoAthine. It was a perfect location and walking distance to the major sites. The metro is also walking distance and easy to use to travel around the city.

The apartment is very cozy and has all the essentials to make you feel at home. Very spacious and comfortable.

Anna and her team were great. Always available when needed and going the extra mile to make your stay a pleasant one.

Can't say enough great things about this property and I hope to stay there again in the near future.

Ideal combination of business and pleasure

  • 4 of 5

Excellent apartment offering proximity to the lively tourist area of Thission by the Acropolis and the office area of Pireos avenue (between Omonia and Pireus). Full comfort and an excellent and caring owner with great tips for the visitor.

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.
