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!

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!

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.

Lovely flat!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I loved staying at the SoHoAthine flat during our week in August. Everything we needed was readily available and the flat could not be better furnished or in better shape! Everything was spotless clean! The location was perfect for us because each of our days in Athens started and ended with a walk along the lovely Promenade that surrounds the Acropolis. The only thing I would encourage the owners to do is to add a full-length mirror in the living room as it is hard to get ready with only the bathroom mirror. This is probably the 8th time I have rented a flat thru HomeAway and SoHoAthine was by far the best!!!

Perfect stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

I had the most amazing stay in Anna's flat with my family of four. Anna is a warm and dedicated host who showed us in a flat with a great welcome and perfect organization. The flat is amazing, located in a quite but centrally located neighborhood. In a flat, attention is paid to every single detail. I was grateful for having beautiful balcony for perfect morning coffees. I would like to thank Anna for everything and promise to come again soon.

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 !

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.

Location

From the Owner

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.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Athens International Airport at 33 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Thissio pedestrian zone at 50 Metres Nearest Ferry : Piraeus at 8 Kilometres Nearest Train : Larissis Railway Station at 15 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Thissio pedestrian zone at 50 Metres Nearest Beach : Faliro at 3 Kilometres Car: not necessary

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.
