Athenian Residences Location
In a busy city like Athens, it can be nice to get away from the noise and traffic by retreating to a tranquil oasis, which is, still located in the heart of the city. Athenia Residence offers just that (and much, much more). Located in the up and coming trendy and fun neighbourhood of Psirri there’s a sea of picturesque tavernas and cosy bars right on your doorstep. Akropolis is only a ten-minute walk from the hotel and the city’s main street Ermou is literally just around the corner.
The traditional and modern pool suites and apartments
The main building of Athenian Residences is a traditional grade-listed house from the 1920s. It has a beautiful exterior and renovations were carefully done to restore its former glory. This is the building where the two traditional rooms are located in the old building and sleeps up to three and six people.
Walk across the pretty courtyard with a well (still working) as a centrepiece next to the swimming pool and you’ll reach the modern building of the complex which is housing three spacious (70sqm) luxury suites spread across three floors. Each suite can accommodate up to four people
The modern apartment on the ground floor offers a real wow-factor. The spacious sitting room with its high ceilings boasts an open fully equipped kitchen with an oven, toaster, Nespresso machine (with unlimited capsules), filter coffee machine, kettle, and fridge. The large dining table is made out of grey stone which matches the designer chairs and a beautiful sofa and green armchair. The interior is cosmopolitan with a chic industrial vibe with polished concrete floors and the latest appliances such as a curved LED TV. The spacious bedroom is located next to the sitting rooms and has large windows facing the courtyard and the swimming pool. The Queen size bed is comfortable and additional luxury has been added with a large flatscreen TV and a separate large walk-in closet.
