After a day at the archeological sites, relax on the roof terrace with an ouzo and some mezedes will the sun sets over the Acropolis. After dark, explore the nightlife along Imittou or in Kolonaki, or take a taxi down to the waterfront to join the locals as they stroll along Falero Harbor.
Are you a night owl? Athens at night begins late, and if a Greek nightclub is in your plans, our residential downtown neighborhood offers several options.
If you have brought along the kids, perhaps you prefer the movies? We are across the street and next door to two indoor theaters, and a few blocks from two outdoor theaters where you can picnic under the stars watching the latest releases. Lucky for the English speaking crowd most new releases are in English, with Greek subtitles!

Our Acropolis View terrace is point central for our relaxing guests. Relax in the outdoor living room overlooking the Parthenon and the Acropolis along with the rest of the city skyline or fire up the bbq for a mixed grill or traditional Greek "paidakia" (lamb chops!). Catch some rays on one of the sunbeds or enjoy a frappe or glass of wine in the late afternoon.
And although we have a fully stocked kitchen, if you don't feel like cooking there's lots of options for food delivery so you can enjoy a prepared Greek feast al fresco.

The Attica region
Explore Attica, Delphi, the Peloponnese, and the islands all from your comfortable home base in Athens. Why both packing and unpacking when you can venture out to the port of Pireaus and catch a flying dolphin to Hydra or Aegina and be back in your own comfortable bed that night?
Delphi is a great day trip, visit the lovely mountain village of Arahova en route - we can even arrange a driver for your trip, or help you reserve a car and do it on your own with our provided maps! The Argoloid peninsula is the perfect day trip for everyone: Archeology, beaches, wineries and great food, make this a day to please everyone, while getting you back to your comfortable Sealy bed that night.
Historical and modern Athens at your feet! While the historical centre is just a 10 - 15 minute walk from the penthouse, en route you will pass the Old Olympic Stadium, Hadrien's Arch and the Temple of Zeus, Syntagma Square and the changing of the guard in from of the Parliment. You can also visit the President and Prime Minister's homes en route to Syntagma, and join the Evzones as they march to their positions in front of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier!!
Trendy and chic Kolonaki is located just a 10 minute walk from the penthouse, and en route you might want to visit the National Art Gallery, the Byzantine Museum, the War Museum (great for airplane enthusiasts!), the Benaki Museum and the Museum of Cycladic Art.
At your feet is the vibrant Imittou shopping district. A double wide, boulevard type street, with one side pedestrian, is lined with trees and cafes and is the place for an afternoon "volta" with the locals. Two indoor movie houses and two outdoor movie theaters, for summer films under the stars. Cafes and restaurans, great shopping and even three farmer's markets each week make this the perfect home away from home in the centre of Athens.

"Great apartment in Athens!"
Our group of ten stayed here in June 2014. We were 8 adults and 2 children. This apartment was great--it was wonderful to have a kitchen and laundry facilities, t.v. and internet. The owners also p… More

My family and I are talking with my in laws to go in Greece for a trip as we have some cousins overthere. Having two young children (8 an 5) we decide to rent a flat in stead of going in a hotel. The contact and the level of reactivity and professionalim of Carole (the owner) have been amazing i have to say. She put us in teh best condition to feel confident at teh time to sign our rental contract.
What can I say about the flat...it is just perfect...the view from the rooth is crazy, the location is perfect, anything you need in terms of food, shopping, taxi, bus....is down the stair.
I only can add that the pictures appearing on TripAdvisor are far below the reality. The flat is 100 times nicer in real!! :-)
Also, special thanks to Nadia (the local manager) who is always ready to help if you have any question.
A BIG THANKS FOR THE FANTASTIC SOUVENIRS WE WILL KEEP FOR EVER AFTER OUR STAY IN YOUR GREAT APPARTMENT!

"Don't bother to look at anything else."
The apartment: Large, spacious & has everything & anything you could need from cooking utensils to large fluffy towels. Alpha Plus is on the 6th floor & shares the entire top floor with another apartment (the Beta- which is also very nice). The only thing above you is the gorgeous roof top deck. The apartments is located on a busy street. However, the owner does have another apartment that is on a pedestrian street if you are not interested in street noise. The pictures do not represent the apartment- it is considerably nicer!!
The location: Direct access to many restaurants, shops & quaint cafes right outside the front door. You are away from the touristy area @ the Acropolis which allows for a more authentic Athens experience. It is about a 30 minute walk from the Acropolis. If you would rather take a cab- they are everywhere & cost $5 one way.
The owners: Warm personable & genuinely want you to have a great experience. Nadia- the property manager lives 2 block away & is very helpful & knowledgeable about the area. Carole, the owner was honest & quickly responded to all/any requests. When I ask Carole for her recommendation regarding which apartment to rent- she called the Alpha the "wow" apartment. I definitely agree.

"The apartment was even better than the pictures."
The apartment was spacious. Our family of 6 had PLENTY of room. The owners make you feel as if you are at home. They provided great tips, maps and neighborhood restaurants. I would definitely recommend this to friends looking for a place to stay in Athens

"Excellent Accommodations and Tour Assistance"
10 of us stayed at the Acropolis Alpha Plus apartments in June of 2013. We found the apartments absolutely perfect. They were immaculate upon our arrival and everything was explained to us by Carole and Nadia(?). Lots of room for our group and everyone commented on how nice they were. It was very nice to come back at the end of the day, sit on either the balcony or the rooftop terrace and just relax with a glass of wine. Fantastic experience. Also big thanks to Carole for arranging our tours, they were superb and went exactly as expected. Overall the Athens experience was fantastic and it was all due to Carole and her willingness to help. If we go back to Athens, I will definitely be speaking with Carole again. Thanks so much!!!!

"We had an amazing time, in this fabulous home!"
Words cannot describe how perfect this home is. We enjoyed our stay very much, the house has everything you need, it is very well appointed to accomodate a large family. The terrace is amazing, the views are spectacular, and Carole was amazing, she always answered my Emails right back, when we got there she gave us recommendations on dinning options and always made sure we were taken care off, she arranged all transportation and tours. Cannot wait to go back to Athens and stay at this amazing place.

"The best place for vacation"
The apartment is incredibly nice,the view for the terrace is amazingly beautiful,especially at night since you can see the entire well lit Acropolis from the distance.We are extremely happy with the apartment in terms of functionally design and modern equipments.That was the best decision to rent the apartment.

"All the comforts of home in a great location"
The rooftop garden with barbecue, views of sunrise/sunset was tops. The kitchen supplies were good and the welcome treat basket a nice touch. Plentiful, comfortable seating. Beds very comfortable. Bathrooms clean and supplied with products. Bathrobes available. It was great to have Wifi access and free use of the phone to call home. Another plus was the wash machine/drier.

"Home away from home.."
We stayed in Alpha 2 bedroom suite. It has an amazing view of Mount Licavito and is ideally located in the heart of Athens. It is a 15 minute walk to Plaka and the Acropolis and just minutes by tax… More
