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

Dear Ana,


I wanted to thank you for your lovely apartment. Now, this is the way an AirBNB should be! Great bed. Great furniture. Great TV/stereo. You really went out of your way to take care of me. The apartment was spotless. (I fear I didn’t leave it quite as spotless as when I arrived - and I was so rushed I put the garbage on the front balcony, so it wouldn’t smell up the house.)



That you went and bought a Nespresso machine - just because I wanted it - and when the refrigerator was not working - to go and buy a brand new refrigerator.

The house had everything you could think of! Was stylish. Comfortable.

Really - well done! A vacuum. A iron and ironing board. Dishes. Everything was just perfect. (I could have had a couple of more pans. But other than that - it was great!) 


Thank you so much, and I am sure I will return again!

Cozy, stylish and clean. Very helpful staff.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in Thissio, beautiful residential neighborhood with views of Acropolis everywhere you go. It was very clean and modern, with all conveniences, including Nespresso machine.

Anna was easily reached and very helpful.

We would love to come back in the future.

Great apartment in a quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this apartment was excellent. The apartment is neat and clean and has everything one might need including a washing machine. Anna and her team responded very quickly and were very accommodating to special request and even arranged a taxi ride for us to the airport. We have used HomeAway and similar organizations to rent apartments in multiple countries, and all our rentals have been good, but Anna, her team and her apartment are exceptional.

And so is the location. It is in a quiet neighborhood just a few blocks from the pedestrian way and the metro. We only used the metro once as almost everything we wanted to see is within walking distance. One can walk around the Acropolis past most of the ancient sites, museums and shops and be back at the apartment in under an hour. There is a grocery store, a couple of bakeries and multiple coffee shops and restaurants within a few minutes of the apartment. And the views of the Acropolis from this side of the city are the absolute best, especially in the evening from a rooftop restaurant.

The most unique place we found not on the usual tourist stops is the Central Market just a few blocks north of the Acropolis.

All in all, I would recommend this apartment to my family and friends.

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.

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.
