Acropolis Griffin House offers you the convenience of being very close to all of Athens major sites, and a comfortable home in a very small and quiet street just fifty meters from the Acropolis museum, a hundred meters from the Acropolis subway station, and two hundred meters from Acropolis. This is a 5 star self catering Athens house, located on a very quiet street, easy walking distance to the Acropolis and sleeping from 2 to 6 guests. The house is a great option for 2 or 3 couples traveling together, offering each couple their own bedroom and private bathroom, with a spacious living room and kitchen, along with a 50 sq. meter private roof garden for al fresco dining. We are happy to arrange transfers from and to the airport and the port of Piraeus. We can also advise on and provide private guided tours and excursions in Athens and its-surrounding areas and islands.

The apartment was perfect and the location was outstanding. The apartment allowed us to spread out and enjoy some peace and relaxation after walking around the city and the shops. The only problem was when we turned on the air conditioning uints one night a the power went off. This needs to be fixed so more than one unit can be operated at a time. Overall, I would recommend this apartment to anyone who wants to be close to the locals and the dinning facilities and shops. I give this place A++
Great stay regardless
CHRissa was very helpful. The location is perfect with great restaurants very close by every night. We highly recommend getting picked up and recommend ptg tour company. They are awesome and very knowledgeable.
Not a bad restaurant any where near by!! Hold on to you wallet. We had one stolen taking the metro which is crazy crowded every day!!
Lovely home in fantastic location
The home was stylishly decorated, it came well equipped with all the conveniences you could want, and was quite comfortable for our family of 4. The upstairs bedroom is best for adults or older children due to the spiral staircase.
To echo other reviewers, the location is amazing. It is so close to the Acropolis. We walked everywhere. For anything too far for walking, it’s very close to the metro. Would stay here again! Our driver, arranged by the owner, was very nice, helpful, and informative. Definitely recommend not trying to drive yourself in Athens.
We had such a comfortable stay! There were just two of us which made the large house quite luxurious. The space is well planned to accommodate more guests very comfortably. Very impressive. Very charming and personable home. Perfect access on foot to EVERYTHING! Spiros was amazing to introduce us to Athens and make us feel very comfortable in our surroundings. Chrissa is extremely helpful to make sure you know where to go and what to do prior to your arrival. She recommended the Herodeon amphitheater where we booked a play in advance in to view in the shadows of the Acropolis just 5 minutes away. Once in a lifetime experience! Don't miss it!
A NICE PLACE
We found the place very comfortable and convenient.
We happened to be there during a heat wave. It turns out that the the upstairs bedroom has a large glass door to the terrace that faces the afternoon sun. Consequently, the room got very very hot. We decided not to use it. Also, there is a spiral staircase leading up to it. It is not practical to carry a bag up there.
The owner, Chrysoula, provided very helpful suggestions prior to the visit. As a result our contact with the suggested taxi driver (also a guide) Spiro was extremely helpful. We appreciated it very much.
great location, creature comforts
very short walk to acropolis and plaka; great bakery in the neighborhood; top notch video collection for when you're in for the night.
property owner was friendly and helpful (particularly so considering we managed to lock ourselves out of the property on the very first day -- side note: the door locks automatically, beware!)
