About the property

The Urban Stripes project is a collection of modern apartments close to the Acropolis, housed in an apartment building or a “polykatoikia” as it is commonly known in Greece. They are situated in Koukaki, a mostly residential area that was first developed in 60’s and 70’s, now having evolved into Athens’ most hip location.

Urban Stripes brings an air of contemporary, sleek design to the neighborhood, with a strong architectural emphasis on modern minimalism. The entire project is characterised by its signature design, incorporating clean lines for a fresh approach, and the use of high quality materials that carry history in them, such as mosaic and marble.

All these come together to create a soothing urban environment of discrete luxury with all the necessary amenities for a truly memorable stay in Athens.

*Free street Parking (upon availability). Pay parking nearby (100m.)

Great location and very comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

Without wishing to repeat what others have said, but worth reiterating! The apartment is in a great location (eg: 10 minutes walk from the Acropolis), is very clean and well furnished – comfortable in other words. The added bonus, and one we hadn’t expected, was the help provided by Liana and Kira in the ground floor office – that saved us a lot of time finding a bakery, a supermarket & restaurants for example.

We didn’t know what to expect from Athens as none of us had visited before but it is a fantastic city and our family (2 adults and 2 teenage children) had a great time. The food was a definite hit but we also enjoyed the culture & atmosphere as well as the obvious historical sites like the Acropolis. This apartment was a perfect base from which to explore Athens – because it was so comfortable and well located.

I have already recommended these apartments to family & friends. We had a wonderful few days in Athens. Thank you to the Urban Stripes team.

Perfect apartment and location when visiting Athens

  • 5 of 5

My family of four traveled to Greece in June/July 2018. We stayed at the Urban Stripes apartment for 3/4 days before traveling to the islands. This apartment was absolutely perfect for our stay! It was very centrally located so that we could walk to all of the major landmarks within 5/10 minutes. It was very clean, modern, air conditioned and had all of the amenities that we needed for my family to stay (with two teenagers) comfortably. Liana and Theoni were always prompt in their responses to me and also helped me find a supermarket and restaurants that suited my family's needs. The management office was located downstairs from the apartment and there was always someone there to help us if we needed it. I truly couldn't give this a higher recommendation. We loved it and were thankful for the help we received!!

Perfect apartment. Perfect hostess.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was wonderful about this apartment. The kitchen is fully stocked if you wish to cook. The den is comfortable. The bedrooms are light and airy.

Liana was so friendly and helpful. The night we were leaving for Athens, we received an email that there was a strike in effect for all of the taxis. I emailed Liana and she had a private taxi pick us up at the airport. She made all of our restaurant and tour reservations. The food tour was our favorite. She was available for all of our questions about Athens while we were there as well as before we left. We would definitely recommend this apartment to our friends!

Great neighborhood for site seeing.

  • 5 of 5

Property was clean, new, centrally located, and Liana was helpful and delightful.

Only one thing I would would be great if they have paper towels available to help do quick cleanups.

Thanks Liana!

Awesome. Perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a couple of nights, and the flat is perfectly located close to everything you will want to see. It is beautifully laid out, very clean and modern, and Irene and crew are the perfect hosts. Could not give a stronger recommendation.

The Perfect Athens Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Irene's beautiful Athens apartment could not have been more pleasant. It is so comfortable, well-equipped and centrally located to many of the sites we wanted to visit, not to mention wonderful restaurants and a super market for the few supplies we needed. It was really difficult to leave when the time came to move on!

Best of all, though, was Irene herself. She is a delight, providing a wealth of information on a range of things travellers need to know when they are relative strangers to a new city. And she was very helpful in regard to transfers. We all enjoyed her thoroughly.

Koukaki is a neighbourhood full of traditional restaurants, cafes, and bars. In the apartment we provide you with a booklet with our personal favorites of this area. The Acropolis Museum and the Acropolis Metro Station are 3-4' walking distance. Keep walking another 8' and you can reach the Acropolis Hill. Walk through Plaka and its oldest neighbor, Anafiotika, to get to Syntagma and Monastiraki, both reachable by the metro or buses, too.
