Why House of Athens chose Plaka
A building of cultural value, protected by the hellenic law. Magnificent early 1900s italian architecture found all over the residence, especially in the ceilings and the wooden stairs, the veranda, the face of the building, the gate etc. Perfect location, right next to the Acropolis castle rock, 2' walking distance from the Acropolis Metro station & the Acropolis Museum. Amazing view of the Acropolis from the veranda and the balconies of the residence.
What makes this House unique
The residence is situated in a silent area, a perfect choice for everybody who want a calm as well as a cosy stay in Athens city center.

Beautiful property in great location near the Acropolis and in the Plaka. Lots of restaurants and shops nearby. We walked around the Acropolis and saw the sites. Only item to note is that only the bedrooms have A/C and the living room was fairly warm during our August visit. Would rent again. Fun alternative to a hotel.
Athens City Center
Great location, near everything you'll want to do.
Great place in Plaka! Walk to the Acropolis!
Amazing 3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms apartment on the 2nd & 3rd floor above a retail store. Close to several sites including the Acropolis! 15 steps to the 2nd floor and 20 more to get to the 3rd floor. Great patio on the 3rd floor.
Definitely recommend this place. We stayed 2 nights after a cruise with 6 adults and it was very comfortable with lots of shops and restaurants!
Best accomodations in Athens!!!
The six of us had an incredible time at this spectacular apartment, located right in the heart of Athens, under the Acropolis! The owner's son was exceedingly helpful. The property was comfortable, clean and the amazing rooftop patio puts this property in a class of it's own. No need for a car with so many wonderful cafe's and restaurants within walking distance. Between the rooftop patio view of the brightly lit Acropolis (above us) and the charming sounds of musicians and evening strollers on the street below us, this apartment truly enhanced our experience of ancient, delicious Athens.
We stayed two nights at the beginning of Aug and the first impression is the location is fantastic. The villa interior was just ok. It was a bit rundown. AC only in the bedrooms, which in August made the rest of the house unusable. The temps during our stay were 96°F - very hot. Kitchen very outdated but everything worked. And there are two flights of spiral steps, one to first floor and another to top floor. No parking anywhere that I could see. And, street in front is VERY busy with foot traffic walking in the one lane street so using taxis meant getting picked up or dropped off around the corner. Not a big deal but to consider. Acropolis museum was a 3-4 minute walk away. Lots to do within walking distance.
Beautiful home and furnishings.
Excellent experience. Great to be directly in the Plaka.
The residence is situated in the heart of Plaka.
Being one of the most picturesque areas of the world, Plaka, the neighborhood of the gods, lies "in the shadow of the sacred rock of Acropolis". Plaka is famous for its neoclassical architecture, the narrow cobblestone streets, local restaurants & cafés, outdoor cinema, live music, the whitewashed homes of the Anafiotika neighborhood and a 100% greek-island vibe.
The residence is in walking distance to all famous touristic sights, such as the Acropolis castle rock, the Acropolis Museum, the Temple of Zeus, the Hadrian's gate, the Odeon of Herodus Atticus, the theater of Dionysus, the Archaeological Museum and many more museums and important touristic sights.
Find yourself in around all bars, clubs, restaurants & lounges of the city center within a 10' walk.
