About the property

Apartment, 3 Bedrooms, 2.0 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 8)

In search of a family-sized holiday apartment in the heart of Athens? You've found it at Acropolis View Beta Penthouse.

Inside, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms provide ample living space for families or groups of adventurous friends, sleeping up to 8 people. And while the modern interiors are impressive, it’s the wraparound balcony and landscaped roof terrace that set this sleek Athens pad apart! It's 5-star comfort, without the 5-star price tag.


Beta Penthouse comes with a city-view balcony, perfect for starting the day with an alfresco coffee. In the evening, head up to the roof terrace, shared only with our AlphaPlus Penthouse next door, and enjoy the shimmer of moonlight on rooftops with glass of wine in hand; or enjoy a special meal under the stars, thanks to the handy gas BBQ grill and plentiful outdoor seating.

For larger groups, Beta and AlphaPlus can be rented together as a spacious duplex, giving you exclusive access to the landscaped rooftop terrace. Wine tasting and catered breakfasts can also be arranged. Ask us for details!


We have 3 bedrooms that sleep 8, with 2 more guests accommodated on the sofa bed. Two bedrooms have Queen and twin-sized beds, making them ideal for families with small kids. The third room, an internal room with air-conditioning and double bed, is a cozy option for the teen who wants privacy.

The two full baths come with all you need to refresh after a day's sightseeing. Each comes furnished with organic Greek bath products and fluffy robes. One bathroom has a hydro-massage walk-in shower, while the second features an American-style combo of jetted tub and hydro-massage shower.


You’re right in the center of it all at Beta Penthouse. Gaze over your morning coffee as Athenian life unfolds around you. Just outside, in the 4 “platieas,” or local squares, you'll find kids at play and neighbors catching up before heading to the nearby farmers’ markets.

The tree-lined street is full of cafes and restaurants – take your pick and discover some of the best Greek food in the city. The area is favored by locals in the know and travelers after a slice of the real Athens.

And when it’s time to see the sights, you’re within walking distance of the historic center and the best museums in the city, like the Benaki, the Cycladic, and the National Art Gallery. Easy-to-navigate public transportation makes it a breeze to visit Syntagma Square and the National Gardens too. You’re also a stone’s throw from the jogging paths and pine-scented playground of the Little Forest of Pagrati.


While the neighborhood offers authentic Athens at your doorstep, Greek Vacation Rentals provides their guests with true American-style comfort once you step inside. You’ll love the charging station for US electronics (no more fumbling with adaptors!) and the fully stocked kitchen, perfect for big, boisterous family dinners. All the necessary appliances are here – think large full-sized washer and dryer – to ensure an easy vacation for everyone.

The imported Sealy Posturepedic mattresses, heavenly high thread-count linens, and sumptuous bath products make Beta Penthouse feel like home (only better).

We believe our Acropolis View Beta Penthouse is the perfect place to live like a local - make it your chic home-away-from-home in downtown Athens.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This apartment was well centered as we could walk almost anywhere. The apartment was very clean and well appointed with all the necessities and then some! Carole has outdone herself with helps and recommendations -and she took care of all the drivers and tours. It was like our very own concierge in Greece!

Thank you Carole for your hospitality!

The Heart of Athens

  • 5 of 5

It was amazing to get a chance to "live" in the heart of Athens for 2 days prior to our cruise and 2 days after our cruise. The 2 different apartments we were in were well suited to our traveling group of 4; a couple and 2 single adults. The staff was outstanding in responding quickly to our needs or questions. Very helpful in many ways. Thank you for the experience of a lifetime. Carmen and friends

Wonderful apartment with nice terraces

  • 5 of 5

We (a group of 4 adults and a child) spent 5 days in Athens and our stay in the apartment was great. The apartment is well located: outside the tourist area but close enough to it (some days we walked, other days we took a taxi for 4€). The apartment is spacious, comfortable, superclean, stylish modern decoration, lots of terraces and plenty of sun-light. It has everything you need: 3 rooms with very comfy beds, kitchen with all the kitchenware, dinning table, 2 bathrooms with lots of towels, shampoos and hair drier, and of course wifi. Supermarkets and bakeries are in the neighbour area. The host was very helpful and welcoming both before and during our stay. We would definitely stay here again next time we come to Athens.

Great apartment in the center of Athens

  • 5 of 5

There were 4 adults staying (a couple and 2 singles), and the apartment was quite spacious. It was a record heat wave in Athens, and having separate air conditioners in each room was great! And having access to the roof garden and views was a big plus. We arrived to a basket of snacks, a bottle of wine, and a bottle of Ouzo in the refrigerator, so we could be thoroughly prepared for our stay! And our hosts couldn't have been more gracious and accommodating. All together, a wonderful experience that we hope to repeat!

Review on Acropolis Beta, 3 bedroom 2 bathroom

  • 4 of 5

Overall, our experience in this apartment was pleasant with a couple of exceptions. The inside bedroom shares a door with the apartment next door. Unfortunately, it was extremely noisy in this room as we could hear every noise, including conversations that were taking place with our neighbours. The other two rooms were great. Mattresses were extremely comfortable. Air conditioning in every room is a bonus. The view from the terrace is incredible and a great place to end the day and watch the sunset. During our stay, the lock on the front door had been changed, but wasn't working so getting back into the apartment proved a challenge as our key would not work. Nadia, our food tour guide was wonderful. She has a great knowledge of the city, is very pleasant and you can tell she loves what she does. When my sister's flight was delayed, Nadia was very accommodating in working around her schedule. If you don't need to use all 3 bedrooms, but would like the extra space, I would stay in this apartment as it is in a great location quite central to catching buses/taxis to all the key sites.

Owner's Response: Sosaan Thanks for sharing your experience. We are sorry that their was noise from the adjacent Acropolis View Alpha penthouse. We were in the midst of replacing a door in the connecting stairwell which left the soundproofing missing during your booking. It's now been replaced so that doorway is actually a well insulated wall between the two apartments - so when you return we promise quiet :-) Beyond that Basil and I are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Come back to Athens soon, or come visit one of our Magic Factory Loft vacation rental homes in Chicago! Carole and Basil

Amazing Athens!

  • 5 of 5

While a great apartment with everything as promised and more, the best part was the service offered by Carol and her team. It started when our flight was delayed (the day of!) and we missed the connection and came in 8 hours later than expected. We wrote to Carol and she said no problem everything will be taken care of. Sure enough when we got out of baggage after midnight(!) there was Niko waiting for us, and when we got to the apartment Nadia was there to explain everything to us. Carol continued to be responsive throughout our stay. Fully furnished and well stocked with everything and plenty of room for everyone. AMAZING! roof deck with views. 2 minute walk to grocery, bakery, coffee, pharmacy, etc. Don't miss the amazing farmers market if you are there on Tuesday! Easy access to all sites. taxi stand outside the door and we went everywhere for around E5. Don't book anywhere else until you check availability on this apartment!

Owner's Response: Eric Thank you so much for sharing your Athens experience. Basil, Nadia, Niko and I try hard to make sure that our guests' have trouble free travels from the moment they entrust us with what is often a once in a lifetime trip to Greece. We appreciate your highlighting that beyond offering exceptional accommodations our concierge & travel planning services set us above and beyond any other furnished rental in Athens. We hope you'll return to Greece for more of the same, or better yet come visit us in our Magic Factory Lofts in Chicago! Carole and Basil

Lovely, Clean, Modern Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Carol was great from our planning stage to our final drive to the cruise ship. . She sent me various information that was priceless! She arranged for our airport pickup, breakfast, and tour guides. Our tour guide for the Acropolis and various other sites was Maria. She was young, energetic, and very knowledgeable. I am very picky about my tour guides and she was a 5 star. We also had Nico, he was a tour guide as well as a driver. I cannot say enough good things about these two people. I would ask for them!!

The Apartment was perfect for 3 women. It was in a safe neighborhood that had everything you need, from groceries, clothes, restaurants, pharmacy, and coffee shops.

Our only complaint was not enough toilet paper and the stand up shower needed some kind of shelf. (both minor inconveniences)

The air conditioners worked great, which was needed. The balcony and roof terrace were amazing. Bring earplugs, because you are in a city, and if you are in the front bedroom, there is noise. A price to pay for location.

I would highly recommend this property for all the reasons you rent an apartment. Location, utilitzation of area, conveniences in the apartment and outside of it.
