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!

Ones again ,thank you for the hospitality!

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!

Lovely little apartment in an outstanding location to see the sights of Athens

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is small but has every amenity for a very comfortable stay. We are a couple and it suited us brilliantly - it would be very "full" with three or four people.

The equipment is excellent - good quality kitchen appliances, crockery, cutlery, pots and pans and glassware. Dishwasher is available as is an efficient washing machine. Detergents etc are provided, as are good personal hygiene products in bathroom.

Apart from a neighbour doing renovations (which of course was beyond Anna's control) the apartment was very peaceful, especially when you consider how handy it is to all the things you will want to see and do in Athens. We walked everywhere on our sightseeing outings. The Thissio metro stop was a very easy ten minute stroll away.

Anna organised a very welcome, late night pick up from the airport as well as allowing a 2 am check in. Our orientation was a bit perfunctory but considering the lateness of our arrival that's understandable and we found everything we needed without difficulty.

We made our hang out for coffee, drinks and simple meals the little bar on Iraklion Street - Koupa Libre - where we were warmly greeted and made to feel like locals. The supermarket is in the street parallel to Iraklion and it's well stocked with everything you'll need - fruit, vegetables, meat, fish, deli goods and of course the full range of grocery items - and they speak excellent English. There are several lovely bakeries nearby as well as a very good wine shop a few steps away up Efestion St.

The customer service we received from Anna from start to finish was outstanding. She couldn't have been more accessible, responsive or accommodating. My only suggestion is a slightly more comprehensive compendium with some information and recommendations re local shopping, eating and drinking - maybe a guest book where people can leave their personal favourite and advice re do's and dont's.

All in all a very good vacation rental experience.

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.
