The neighbourhood

At the foot of the legendary Acropolis

An enthralling place to explore, Athens is a captivating mix between the ancient relics of an age that set the foundations of modern civilisation, and an edgy, urban side that will take you by surprise. The city’s contrast of culture is absolutely riveting, and more vivid than ever in our neighbourhood imbued with everything that is quintessentially Athenian.

One of the oldest and perhaps most picturesque locations in the historical city center, exploring the locale of Plaka and the adjacent districts is one of the most fascinating things to do during your stay. Let us show you where our people love to hang-out, for a true taste of the local Athenian scene.
