Fully Furnished Apartments and Houses for Short and Long Term Rent in Athens













Excellent location. Walking distance to everything. Friendly staff that organised our taxi from the airport and to the ferry for our next trip. Taxi driver Mike was so helpful. Told us all about the different locations and places to go. The apartment is very basic but clean and had everything we needed for our short stay in Athens :)

A great place to stay in Athens

A great place to stay in Athens! central to great bars, cafes and restaurants, and an easy walk to the Acropolis and the Athens Central Market. a very friendly welcome included a quick walk around the neighbourhood, which was very helpful in getting us oriented. the apartment was as described, and very clean and spacious. to top it all off, the beds were some of the most comfortable we've slept on during our travels!

Fantastic hosts

We had a lovely stay at this apartment. It's about a 2 minute walk to some of the best restaurants and bars in Athens, and you can walk to the Acropolis and the Plakka in about 15 minutes; great location! It's clean and well decorated; we loved all the unique mid-century furniture and all of the art throughout. The hosts are fantastic; from being super responsive in communication before we arrived, to sending an email to alert us to metro strikes happening on the day of arrival to taking us on a walking tour of the neighborhood when we checked in (above and beyond there!). They had coffee, tea, sugar, milk and water for us too. Great stay!

A lovely stay

We had a lovely stay in Dean's apartment. It looked exactly as in the pictures. It was spotless clean and the beds were very comfortable. The apartment is in very close walking distance to Monastiraki place. Nice and cool restaurants and cafes are even closer by. But the street of the apartment is very quiet. We arrived late at nights at Athens airport with 2 kids and Dean organised a driver who picked us up and had the keys for the apartment. That was really helpful. Thanks a lot for all! A great stay in Athens.

Absolutely perfect

This listing was absolutely perfect for our large group of 11 people. The apartments are set up in a way that everyone had their own little space and it was easy to all hang out in one of the apartments. Costas went above and beyond what I would expect from a host and was a lot of fun to talk to during our check in. Manolis gave us a quick tour of the neighbourhood when we arrived and it helped immensely in getting our bearings straight. We also arranged 3 rides to and from the airport through our host and they all went off perfectly. The apartments are in walking distance from everything you want to do in Athens and we’re also surrounded by tons of street art. Absolutely would recommend staying at this listing, or any property managed by this group. Even if the apartments were less than desirable, which they weren’t in any way, the staff alone make the difference.

A wonderful industrial apartment for a group of friends who want to get to know the real Athens!

The flat was furnished beautifully and tastefully with local street art. The beds were extremely comfortable, and everything was very clean. it was the perfect place for a group of friends (it could comfortably sleep 6-8people!) even though we were only 4. It had a wonderful large terrace for sunny breakfasts with a breathtaking acropolis view. The area is very authentic and close to many cafes and bars, and although it could seem 'rough' it is perfectly safe! a great insight to Athens life! we left the car at the parking right next door which was very reasonably priced.
Tatiany, Germany

We absolutely loved this space!

There were nine of us in the travel party and we couldn’t have felt more welcomed! The location was great with plenty of activities nearby. We are all mid to late 20s and were huge fans of the surrounding bars and lounges. The street art in the area was a nice touch. Also, we loved the quick tour of the neighborhood when we arrived. I would highly recommend this location!
Austin TX, USA

A real treasure!

I had rented the house to accommodate our group of friends over a long weekend. The place is a real treasure in an very central location and yet super calm. The house has been beautifully renovated with amazing attention to detail. Little extra touches like milk in the fridge are great too. The roof terrace is of course spectacular. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the team was very helpful. Besides the ground floor apartment it works probably best for couples as the bathrooms are ensuite or very good friends if you share studios with more than two people. For us it was great. Many thanks
Pauline Brussels, Belgium

A great way to see Athens like a local!

The property was very large and gave plenty of room for my family of four (two university aged daughters) for our stay in Athens. The good sized fridge was very handy for waters in hot Athenian weather and the view of the Parthenon was amazing, especially at night. Many eating and drinking options were only a couple of blocks away. Our orientation upon arrival was very useful as well. My 21 year old repeatedly said she wishes it were at her college since the layout and look and feel were perfect for friends getting together. Would definitely recommend!

Just had the best time with Boutique Athens

Just had the best time with Boutique Athens at EP3. Great transfers to and from airport with Mickael in his clean and smooth taxi. Met at apartment by Yannis who was wonderful explaining everything including city map. Then taken on fabulous local tour by Nick who showed us all the best local bars, restaurants, sights - everything! Beautifully appointed and clean apartment in hip arty area - so close to all sights. Thanks so much to Nick Yannis Mikaela and Dean -so exceeded our expectations in everyway.

Great place good location, very safe

We booked this rental on line for 15 members of our family at ane dof our cruise. When we got ther we were a little skeptical, but that quickly changed when we got in the wonderful EP apartments. We rented all five units.Since we arrived early in am, Costas greeted us and allowed us to safely store our luggage in their office less than a block away. Then he proceeded to give us a one hour tour of the neighborhood, which consisted of a lot of you adults and families, the local bakery, which was awesome and the small square just blocks away where we could get the HOHO bus. When were able to get into the apartments they spacious and Costas took great to explain to each one of us how the appliances worked, the AC units and the TV's the bonus roof garden overlooked the city and a view of the Accropolis. The bonus was it was stocked with drinks for our use. They arranged for our transfer to the units and to the airpport. They were right on time and we hand no difficulty connecting with them. Thre is no elevator, but the steps were gradual and easily navigated even by one member that had a bad knee and another who was 81. lia was marvelous to work with when we were setting it up, very responsive aand accomodating. We highly recomend these units.
Mike T. Brnsville, Minesotta

Amazing Location!

The location of the apartment was absolutely fabulous! The room was very spacious and wonderfully laid out. The interior stair case led to the roof top garden with a view of the Acropolis which my husband thoroughly enjoyed. The person that they assigned for our pick up and drop off was wonderful as well. He provided a map and thoughtful instructions for making our way out to dinner on our first night, which we also used for the rest of our stay. We loved staying there and would most certainly stay there again if we are ever in Athens.

Boutique Athens has it figured out, great system and apartments.

What an amazing stay, Boutique Athens has the recipe figured out! Pre-stay was organized and efficient. We were provided with a regular email chain that had next steps for each part of the planning process. Fill out the form they send people, it makes them able to customize your stay. We originally had interest in their larger residence for our 19 person group but 1 day in the middle of our stay was already booked to they were able to get us 4 apartments next to each other and it worked out splendidly, better than we could have hoped. Our arrival went smooth. The hosts were waiting on us, guided us in and showed us around all 4 apartments. Our guide was fantastic, he showed us around the neighborhood twice because we had to split up to return cars to airport. He showed us lots of favorites in the area to visit and we enjoyed each one. Our stay was top notch, neighborhood felt a little rough at first but after being there a day and meeting the people it ended up being a very charming and friendly district. The area is very unique with lots of art and performers as well as great food and a public square right next to metro with plenty of shopping and activities. Each apartment had balconies and rooftops with Acropolis view where we would gather as a group and fellowship in the evening. Everything (plumbing, electrical, climate control, etc.) worked perfectly and we experienced zero problems with any of our amenities while we stayed. The "guidebook" that was provided in each apartment was a great touch. My family travels a lot but there was one person with us who is even much more well traveled than we are and she could not have been more impressed with the content and resources provided in the binder. She said it was the first time in all her travels that she had such a great local resource. When we left we had planned on dragging all our luggage and hopping the metro to the airport. Our guide heard this and mad e a recommendation for a bus service he knew of. The day before we left I called him and he arranged through the operations manager to have a bus waiting on us big enough for our entire group and our luggage for half of what it would have cost for the metro and much less headache. Boutique Athens has a formula figured out to make your stay very enjoyable and comfortable. Their system is efficient and effective. Thank you so much Yanis, Costas, Lia, Manolis, and Yorgis we very very much appreciate you. These guys (and gal) are great. We will be staying Boutique Athens again, I promise.

Excellent Apartment

Great apartment, excellent facilitates, wonderful organisation and support from the staff. Very grateful and thank you.
Sanjay United Kingdom

Comfortable and spacious apartment in good location

Up a few flights of stairs this second floor apartment was quiet, spacious and had all of the amenities required for a comfortable stay in Athens. There is aircon in the living area and the bedroom, two small balconies and a functional well equipped modern kitchen. Check-in and communications were good and the office is close by if contact with staff is required. The location is convenient to Acropolis and surrounding sites, a short and pleasant walk to Monastiraki and Plaka and close to the colourful central markets of Athens. The actual street location looks a bit edgy and run down and there is lots of street art and graffiti but it seems like a safe enough place.
George Novakovic Australia

Wonderful apartment in the arty suburb of Psiri

We enjoyed 2 nights in this lovely apartment block. Our ferry had arrived 2 and half hours late but the driver, Michalis, and Yannis, the manager, waited patiently for us. Yannis gave us a great tour of the area after we had checked in. The area is vibey and arty and walking distance to the sites. The apartment is lovely with everything you need and a cute rooftop terrace where we had breakfast every morning. We did our laundry which was great after 6 nights of travelling (they provided the washing detergent). The bed was very comfy, the only thing I would suggest is that they get thinner pillows.

To Life!

My adult daughter and I stayed for four nights. Great location, authentic working Greek neighborhood, close to a remarkable bakery, a square with many choices for dining, coffee, people watching. A rooftop patio with complimentary wine. Very clean, everything worked well. The manager took us for a walk of the neighborhood to acclimate us to the area. Amazing hospitality. Great coffee, fresh milk, and a French press! Who could ask for more? We felt very safe at night, and everything was walkable. The Greek people are the star of the show. Use the taxi driver who is recommended. The airport is a distance away, but our driver was there when we arrived, and was on time to return us to the airport early on a Sunday morning. We would highly recommend this apartment.
Elaine USA

You will be pleased with this one

We found this accommodation lived up to the advertised promises. The unit was very clean, light and pleasant to be in. I loved sitting on our little balcony watch the world go by. We were a close walk to the busy touristy bits but felt tucked away in an area that felt like a very authentic slice of Greek life. There were some very nice restaurants close by including the "home cooking" style that Lia recommended. It took us only 15 minutes to walk up to the Acropolis. You will receive very personalised service from the managers at Boutique Athens. We appreciated being met at the airport by Mihalis for the same cost as any taxi fare into Athens. Lia met us and showed us around with helpful hints and recommendations. She was interested in our plans following Athens and suggested what to look out for in other places we were visiting. Any queries and concerns were very quickly and obligingly dealt with. Thanks Lia and Costas.
Truda Sydney, Australia

Effecient rooms very good service and value for money

"We stayed for 4 stays, the organisers arranged for taxi to pick up and was effective. The rooms are neat tidy and comfortable with a working kitchen. The location is very central very near to Monastraski area and all eating and ameneties in a walking distance. We stayed as a family of 4 and we have no regrets. Highly recomended."

Jewell amidst antiquity

Our first time in Greece was truly a wonderful experience. We were met at the airport by "Mike" the taxi driver recommended by Lia, one of the property managers. Mike was personable and a wealth of info as a native of athens. Lia took over at the apartment - which is lovely, clean and had everything we needed. Lia gave us a tour of the apartment's rooftop garden, and the surrounding hotspots (including a terrific rooftop bar - atop the a is for athens Hotel) and Monastriki Square. The apartment is within walking distance to all we wanted to see. A very helpful map was explained to us by Lia and left for us to help find our way to all the sights. Another important feature of the apartment for us was how secure and safe it was. We travel with all our devices and were relieved to find a place such as this. Cannot say enough about this place. We loved finding this Jewell within waking distance to the acropolis and set amidst locals so as to experience Greek culture.
Sue Portland, Oregon, USA


A great place in Psirri, halfway between Omonia and Monostiraki Metro stations and just a couple of blocks from the main Athens green market. Great roof garden, comfortable bead and bath, spacious living/dining/kitchen combo, two nice balconies overlooking the street for breakfast or evening coffee. Staff are both fiiendly and accommodating. They meet you on arrival and, if you like, will give a quick walking tour of the neighbourhood, so you know where to find groceries, bakery, wine, etc.
James L. London, UK

Lovely apt, great location

The apartment is lovely, the location is great and the introduction to the neighbourhood was very useful. We were very happy with what we had. We went to the restaurants you recommended and enjoyed it. Great team!
Pankaj Mumbai, India

Awesome place for a group or family as it has separate apartment

The only thing you have to be careful is the stairs for the top apartments. Location was fantastic. Very bohemian feel and right near the centre of athens.

You Can't Beat the Location, Quality and Outstanding Service

You will want to stay at this location for several reasons. First, the service is extraordinary--professional and friendly. We had a major flight schedule change and the rental team--Lia and Costas--just made it work perfectly. Met us, escorted us to the unit, and then gave us an orientation walk through the neighborhood, pointing out all the things we needed. They also help arrange taxis and other tours. They made things easy. Second, the apartment itself was very comfortable--for four in our case--good beds, great bathroom, washer, AC that kept the entire unit comfortable in the hot weather, and a nicely equipped kitchen. Finally, there's the location--from the rooftop terrace where we had breakfast looking at the acropolis to having everything else just a short walk away: major sites and museums, restaurants, shopping, groceries. It would be hard to imagine a better value. Thank you Dean, Lia and Costas!

Really Great Place to Stay with Great Hosts

We stayed for three days in the middle of July and found it perfect for us. We had apartments 3 and 4 which interconnect and gave my 13 year old twins there space including a lounge dining and ourselves with the two year old jack the same. The place was modern, clean and full of little surprises, cold water and milk in the fridge, great coffee for the plunger. On arrival Costas took us for a walk around the area showing us a lot of places Tourists would not find and we had beers in a fabulous courtyard bar. What a start to our holiday. Thanks you Costa.

Excellent place

"I rented 4 flats for a group of people travelling to athens in a mid-war building owned by Boutique athens. The apartments were beautiful, really well renovated and had everything you needed. The hosts showed us around the first night as we arrived just before midnight and this was very helpful as this area of athens is not very busy during the late evening hours.

What a wonderful place to stay

"The apartment and the city of athens were just wonderful. Where we stayed was modern, comfortable and spotless. The location was ideal, within walking distance of everything you would want. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and even when we we had problems with our credit card they were calm and efficient in their assistance.

Great Place!

Lovely apartment, great organisation from Lia and equally great reception from Costas (including tour of local area; what a plus) Very central part of athens and above the city'#s only garlic shop!
Bob Oxford, UK

Best place to stay

"We stayed in EP4 in april 2013 for two nights at the end of our two week stay in Greece. This was our second time we utilized the fantastic services of Boutique athens and their staff Lia and Costas. At the beginning of our trip we stayed at their beautiful MO1 property for four days. Boutique athens offers a reliable, comprehensive, detail oriented, professional service. Costas greeted us at the Metro station and walked us through the area and to the apartment. Costas provided us with maps and suggestions to ensure we had a perfect stay. Boutique athens also works with an extremely reliable and pleasant taxi driver, Michalis, who we used to take us to the airport several times during our two week stay in Grecce.

"Wir haben mit 5 Paaren dieses schne Haus bewohnt und jedes Paar fhlte sich in seiner eigenen Wohnung sehr wohl. Zwei Wohnungen waren gro genug, um gemeinsam die Mahlzeiten einzunehmen. Die Dachterrasse ist grandios! Die Lage des Hauses ist sehr zentral, schnell ist man zu Fu an allen wichtigen Stellen, die U-Bahn ist auch gut zu erreichen. Der Taxiservice hat super funktioniert, Lia hat uns die Schlssel bergeben und uns zuerst die nhere Umgebung gezeigt. Das war sehr hilfreich! Herzlichen Dank an Lia, sie ist sehr charmant uns spricht gut deutsch! Bei dem schnen Wetter wren wir gerne noch etwas geblieben.

EP1- Excellent

We stayed with a family of 3 in this splendidly renovated apartment. Great ameneties, careful renovations with stylish touched made us feel truly at home.
It was simple to reach reall everything on foot. The lively neighourhood proved essential to feel to be in a bit of "real Athens". Aside from the beautiful roof garden, the exceptional host, the great introduction and the range of useful and original tips for our stay made EP 16 probably the essential ingredient for some great 4 days.

Outstanding Apartment and Worldclass Service!

The apartments are ideal for any traveler wanting to be in the heart of Athens for their visit and include all necessary amenities (i.e. washer/dryer, fridge, TV, WIFI internet, etc). Everything you could ever need is within walking distance including shopping, entertainment, metro, etc with no problem. The logistics of our trip were planned and executed flawlessly including the arrival/department transport by taxi, the apartment walkthrough and neighborhood tour. The entire team of Costas, Lia and Michalas were extremely professional, attentive and more then accommodating to any and all of our needs going above and beyond with no hesitation. The apartment is great and the people are even better...this is a must for your stay in Athens.

We were very pleased with our stay at this great apartment. The manager, Lia was extremely helpful and informative. The apartment itself had everything we required for our stay. We enjoyed the rooftop garden daily and were very pleased with the location. The apartment was clean and quaint with no issues
Leah t

Very well situated to visit Athens

The apartments were very comfortable and very well situated to visit Athens, by walking. The owner was very kind. It was ideal for three families with children.
At our arrival by taxi, the neighbourhood didn't seem to be very sure, but finally, it appeared to be OK.
We spent a very good time there and would be ready to come back.

Great Location!

I'm generally not one who raves about lodging but this place was amazing. I stayed in the lower unit which was a full one bedroom apartment and it was located in a residential area. It was fun to 'live' among the local people and to observe a small piece of the Greek culture. The building is older with many of the original features which add so much character. And I have never, Ever stayed in a hotel or apartment that was cleaner! The apartment is only a short walk to restaurants, shopping, entertainment, and the Metro. As a 55+ year old woman, I felt safe walking everywhere, even in the evening. The rooftop deck was great, and especially so at night when the view of the acropolis was postcard beautiful. It was a bit of a workout climbing all the steps to the rooftop after a day of sightseeing though. Above all else about the property was the wonderful customer service provided by Lia and Costas. I travelled alone and did not know the language so I had lots of questions. They happily assisted and I felt well taken care of! Costas gave me a guided tour through the neighborhood and wisely pointed out several landmarks which helped me find my way back to the apartment. As for Lia, she was very helpful for several months before I arrived and she continued the high level of customer service during my stay. I do wonder if Lia ever sleeps because she answered my emails day and night while I was in athens. The apartment was one of two Boutique athens properties I stayed in during my visit to athens and I certainly would stay with them again. P.S. to Costas: Thanks for

Fantastic Service

My husband and I are from the U.S. and traveled to athens from June 10-14, 2012 and The Island of Santorini (Oia) June 14-17. So glad we went at a not-so-busy time of the year. I can't imagine being able to enjoy the sites or restaurants in peak-season with so many more tourists.

We were greeted at the airport by Michalis who drove us to our apartment in his air-conditioned taxi. Attentive, informative, sociable and a wonderful mini-tour-guide! We were welcomed by Lia at the apartment, and I thoroughly enjoyed meeting with her. She showed us around the area and I wish I could have had her all day! Very hospitable, informative and appreciative of what little Greek I knew. Thank you, Lia!

The apartment is exactly as represented online via photos and descriptions. Clean, simple and comfy enough for our needs. I felt safe in our complex. There's the outermost door to the complex, a door that leads to our front door as well as our neighbor's, and then our own apt. door. All open and lock with keys. And the hallways have auto/on/off lighting. Also, nice to have two separate air-conditioning units--one in the living room, one in the bedroom. Our downstairs/outdoor neighbor is one of the last few garlic vendors in the city. The couple also happens to be the apartment property manager Costas' parents. Costas also lives across the street and his brother owns the taverna at the end of the road.

The apartment is located in a perfect area as it is close to everything we wanted to do or see. We had no need whatsoever to use a taxi or the metro. Everything was within walking distance: restaurants, tavernas, cafes, bakeries, grocery store, miscellaneous boutiques, Metro, bus stops, Pedestrian Walkway, Plaka flea market, The acropolis, the new acropolis Museum, Ancient agora and Syntagma Square.

A few pointers:
1. Make sure you ask Lia to show you how to use the washer/dryer combo. What do each of those icons represent when washing and when drying? What temperature(s) to use for w/d? I did not find the typed directions to be of much help, and the actual manual comes in every language except English.
2. Ask where the water heater switch is located. We inadvertently turned it off somehow (near the coffee maker in the kitchen) and had cold showers our last night. I should have called Lia, but didn't think of it.
3. Bathroom floor can get wet from shower overflow, as the shower stall wasn't built high/deep enough to keep all of the water contained.
4. The streets are all cobblestone. The marble and stones in the ruins can be slippery. Rubber soles are the best, whether via tennis shoes or flip-flops (thongs for those in the U.K.) -- and not those awful, cheap shower shoes! It was hot, but nothing more than what we are already accustomed to during our hot summer months in Florida.

Thank you for a wonderful, everlasting experience!

Boutique athens is a class act

We stayed in this apartment for 7 days in Sept/Oct. The photographs on the website were good but the apartment was even better. It was chic, well designed and spotlessly clean. It was light and airy and felt very spacious. The roof garden was a good place to sit and have a drink and the view of the acropolis was fantastic.

The kitchen was well equipped so we could shop in the wonderful markets and eat in . There were also lots of good places to eat nearby. The apartment was well equipped with all the basics we needed during our stay. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony and watching the street life and interesting characters. We felt secure and at ease walking around the city.

The staff at Boutique athens were very helpful. They booked us a taxi from the airport when the public transport was on strike. Costas took us on a walk around the local area and gave us lots of useful information.

This was one of the best places we have stayed. A great building in a great city.

Amazing Weekend

Our group of 7 college students stayed here in September and loved it! Costas the manager made us feel really welcome and gave us a mini tour to show us around. The location of the apartment is really central and the Metro and train station is really close even though it is possible to walk everywhere. The view from the terrace is amazing!! All the apartments facilities were exactly what we needed. We cooked a full meal both nights and enjoyed the Greek night life!! Really well air conditioned and lots of windows and balconies. The kitchen is fully equipped and the showers were amazing! The beds were really comfy and we really enjoyed our stay!

Amazing place, amazing location, stellar staff!

We were a group of 6, 3 couples that stayed on arrival to Greece for one night then on our way back from the islands for another 3 nights. Costas and Dean were both very helpful in orienting us to the apartment/location. We very much enjoyed the rooftop patio and roomy apartment. The location is perfect for exploring what the city has to offer

Great in every way

Brilliant location, great value for money, perfect for all types, we were 4 adults and 4 children and suited us perfectly with 2 self contained units interconnecting. Welcome tour was invaluable and such friendly owners, we also loved the rooftop garden - was quite chuffed with myself booking such a little gem, highly recommend!!!

Just Wonderful!

My husband and I just finished a wonderful 4 week stay at Boutique Athens. The apartment was excellent and all of our needs were met.

First, as soon as we stepped off of the Metro one of the property managers, Lia, was there to meet us. She guided us from the metro stop to the apartment through the winding and artistic streets of Psyrri. Lia was very knowledgeable and gave us a brief history lesson of the area. She was very helpful again during our trip when we were trying to spend a day at the beach. There was a taxi strike going on so she helped us to arrange a private car to transport us as we found the bus system to be difficult to navigate. Lia was always very responsive to any questions we had and went out of her way to make sure we were accommodated.

The apartment itself was very spacious - not what we expected from our previous travels in Europe. It had an adequate kitchen, a spacious living room, and a king size bed. The bathroom was also bigger than we expected and very comfortable. We had friends staying with us during portions of our trip and did not feel at all cramped in the apartment. There was a lovely balcony overlooking the courtyard from the third floor. We were also only one flight of stairs down from the rooftop which had a fresh herb garden and a nice view of the Acropolis. We spent several nights cooking out and having drinks and dinner on the roof while admiring the views of ancient Greece.

Europe's biggest outdoor open market was just a quick walk away making all of our grocery shopping very easy. There are two ways to get there - one a bit seedier than the other, albeit faster. The long way is more scenic but can be difficult if you are lugging alot of food back home with you. We opted to take the faster route several times and while we did not feel altogether safe we also were not bothered. I would advise against travelling this street at night though.

The area around the apartment is very nice and is located in the heart of artistic Psyrri. We spent many evenings strolling through the street from Psyrri to Monastroiki. The roadway has lots of good bars and the occasional fire breathing street performers. It's a good area to be in for night life.

Down the street from the apartment is the DaDa bar operated by Evangeli. We spent many nights here and became good friends with the staff and patrons of the bar. They made us feel very welcome and we will not soon forget the great time that EP

Amazing hosts and apartments - great place for a large family

Stayed here with a group of friends and we were all impressed with the friendly, helpful staff and the apartments, which were spacious, clean and very comfortable. One of the highlights of the building is the roof garden, complete with a stocked frig. The location is very convenient for all of the major sights in athens. But in addition to being a great place to stay, the staff was absolutely fantastic. Due to an airline strike, we needed to arrive a day early, and our hosts were extremely helpful, finding convenient accommodations for 8 people at the last minute. They exceeded our expectations in every way, greatly easing what could have been a very stressful situation.

Nice, spatious and luxury appartment

We stayed in EP1 and we were very happy with it.
It is situated in a central part of athens on walking distance of all famous attractions. The neighborhood has nice restaurants and bars.
We loved the roof garden.The bed slept very well.
The house service was accurate.
No complaints and we would highly recommend this appartment for a stay at athens.

Great modern self contained apartment

Our stay at the apartment was excellent. The staff were helpful during the booking and meet us on arrival and briefed on the apartment. Local guide written by owners was very useful. The apartment has everything you really need and you could even enteratin there. We felt welcome, safe and loved the yiayia and papou working in their shop quietly downstairs.

The best of the best

We are a group of 9 friends and go yearly on a citytrip in Europe. We stayed in the Boutique athens apartments for 3 nights in april 2011. They are the best apartments we have ever rented in all of Europe. We felt welcome even before arriving by all the details and explanations that we received by mail. Dean Hewitt was waiting for us at the metro station, brought us to the apartments, showed us around in the building and gave us our own private tour of the area with lots of tips that other tourists would never get the know. The apartments make you feel at home immediately. They are wonderfully decorated with design furniture and furnishings. The kitchens have everything and more than you need for preparing breakfast and even a multi-course meal. The bathrooms are better equipped than those in 5-star hotels. The beds are the best we have ever slept in (and we travel a lot). And then the roof terrace: it is wonderful to be able to relax during the day or after a busy day of sightseeing on this terrace with view of the acropolis.
Special kudoos to Dean and his entire team for always being ready and available to answer questions before our arrival and even during our stay. We will definitely be back to these apartments.

Fantastic apartment Great Location

The apartment was in a great location to get the true atmosphere of Athens and to visit the sites by foot. On arrival at the apartment was meet by Dean, who gave us a tour of the neighbourhood and pointed out some fab places to visit, which we probably would not have found ourselves, along with recommendations of where to eat. The apartment itself was great. Well maintained, clean with all the facilities required. The roof top garden was lovely a definate plus! As a group of friends we have been to many places, but all agreed that Athens was among the top short breaks we have taken. This also had a lot to do with the location, apartment and the friendly people of Athens, including Dean oh and lets not forget Bella!!

When can we go back?!!

We loved our stay. We are a family of five so we rented two apartments together and it was absolutely perfect. They are beautifully finished, spotlessly clean and everything you might need is right at hand. The owner could not have been more helpful and we sincerely appreciated the local tour as we arrived. Knowing all the best spots and being introduced to a few of the shop/restaurant keepers made us feel very welcome and comfortable. The neighbourhood is certainly a mix of old and new but we liked that. The roof terrace is absolutely amazing. All around one of the best holidays we have had as a family. Can't wait to go back!

mazing hosts and apartments - great place for a large family

Stayed here with a group of friends and we were all impressed with the friendly, helpful staff and the apartments, which were spacious, clean and very comfortable. One of the highlights of the building is the roof garden, complete with a stocked frig. The location is very convenient for all of the major sights in athens. But in addition to being a great place to stay, the staff was absolutely fantastic. Due to an airline strike, we needed to arrive a day early, and our hosts were extremely helpful, finding convenient accommodations for 8 people at the last minute. They exceeded our expectations in every way, greatly easing what could have been a very stressful situation.

Unique Experience

When I entered the appartment I already felt "at home" - it was only later that I started taking in all the wonderful details - I loved it very much, especially as the appartment is located in a sourrounding which is "rich": real live with all its contrast and not just smooth romantic kitsch

Unique wonderful experience

When I entered the appartment I already felt "at home" - it was only later that I started taking in all the wonderful details - I loved it very much, especially as the appartment is located in a neighbourhood which is "rich": real live with all its contrast: the almost archaic market the bars with original music and greek guests dancing in such an intense way that seeing this is already worth the journey, and many more details - no smooth romantic kitsch however- just wonderful

Great appartment, central in athen

We had a great time in the nice appartement. The hosts welcomed us very friendly, sponsored us local wine and ouzo and gave recommandations on local restaurants and nightlife. The appartment is pretty new in a nice house with beautiful roof top (view on the acropolis!). The area is central located, with plenty of restaurants around and also just 1 mile away from the nightlife district. We`ll need to come back!

Wait until you get inside.

When our taxi driver pulled into the street and stopped in front of the building our initial thoughts were that we had made a mistake in booking this apartment. Our fears were soon put to rest when we were greeted at the front door by the owner of the building, Dean (also an Aussie) and taken up the grand marble staircase to our top floor apartments. We had the top two apartments which were interconnecting. They were more than we had hoped for - very modern, spacious, recently re-furbished, sparkling clean and freshly painted white. Excellent. The roof top garden was amazing with fews of the Acropolus, plenty of seating and fully stocked bar fridge (all on the house). Dean showed us through the apartment and then came back an hour later and took us on a walking tour around the neighbourhood pointing out all the best places to go, where to eat and shop for groceries. Turns out our apartment was within walking distance to so many attractions and the hop on hop off bus stops. It wasn't long before we really began of love the neighbourhood. There were areas close by where you wouldn't want to venture into, and we were warned about them, but if you stick to the tourist routes and restaurant areas you shouldn't have a problem. I can highly recommend these apartments and if ever we go back to Athens would stay there again. There is no lift in the building, so if you have a problem with stairs it might be best to ask for a ground floor apartment.

Great Location, Beautiful Apartment

We never write comments about where we stay, but we felt we had to this time. We stayed at this apartment in March 2010. We arrived from London at 10am and made our way by the Metro to the apartments. First we were welcomed by Nikki at the Monastiraki Metro Station. The train ride from the airport was inexpensive, clean and quick. We were amazed, as my train experience in Athens in 1994 was nowhere near as positive. On our way to the apartment, Nikki showed us around the immediate area, which we thought was magical. We took 5 minutes to get to the apartment, which is housed in a building with no signs or any indication of the beauty that was within. The apartment was sparkling clean, large and beautifully furnished. The roof top was unbelievable. Views of the Acropolis, free beer and wine, mature plants and big tables for communal dining and day beds for lounging around. This area was so much more than we thought we would find in Athens. The area is very near all of the best of old Athens nightlife. Bouzoukia bars, tavernas and old style Greek cafes are within two minutes walk. I could say much more. What I want to say is I can highly recommend the apartment the staff and the amenities and the proximity to all the great things of Athens.

Top apartments in athens

I am Spanish and had been asked to work in athens on and off for some months during 2009 and 2010.
I stayed at different hotels but finally chose to stay at the Ep16 apartments that are managed by the people at Boutique athens.
I wanted to let people know the apartments are very well appointed, super clean and comfortable.
I especially loved the huge roof garden with views of the acropolis. Many times I worked up there on my laptop while used the the buildings wifi.

I enjoyed the personal service that the staff at Boutique athens gave me. They helped me by keeping luggage that I wanted to leave when I went home to Spain, they helped me with any need I had. They arranged taxis for me, they even picked me up at the airport when I was arriving in athens at a similar time to one of them .

I enjoyed the area they are in as well. I could fo running in a huge park nearby called Filopapou which has great views over the acropolis and the Saronic gulf, I could always find a fun place to eat and to get a coffee. Besides touristy Plaka I strongly recommend Psirri and Gazi.

Overall I want to highly recommend the Ep16 apartments, the area that they are in and the staff who look after you so well.

An ideal base in the heart of athens

If you want a first hand experience of the heart of modern athens then this the ideal base. Located in a quiet backstreet in Psirri, adjacent to Monasteraki, it is the emerging Left Bank or Soho or Greenwich Village of modern athens; lots of bars, boutiques, restaurants and theatres.

The apartments themselves are very tasteful conversions of an old town house. They are comfortable, cool in summer and cosy in winter. Ok, the view from your window is not great but more than compensated by a spacious roof terrace with wonderful views of the acropolis. The cosmopolitan management team is very helpful, knowledgeable and most enthusiastic about their adopted city. I can't wait to return (for the third time).

excellent flat , location handy but "colourful"

The appartments are great, clean, well-stocked with goodies nice layout, art, comfortable beds. Howeger the district is a bit difficult it is very handy for nightlife, resaurants, clubs 5mins walk to monastiraki metro and direct line to airport, walking distance to the big central market and shopping and quite quiet. However, this is an area undergoing change and there are still drug takers in the streets nearby sometimes or homeless people. However a walk around in the day will show you where not to walk at night, If you want to be centrally located its great but if you are not used to a cosmopolitan big city atmosphere and being used to being street wise, this is not for you . If you want a modern home for a whlie and to be close to the nightlife then the view of the acropolis from the roof garden with the free ouzo/beer available this makes it a good deal

Stylish Hotel Alternative

Beautifully renovated luxury apartments in an art deco building on the fringes of Psirri in a very authentic Athenian neighborhood allow the visitor to blend in with the city comfortably and easily. All the conveniences of a hotel are available (but much more space plus a full kitchen!) and common terrace for the guests to use. Very accommodating staff and excellent prices make this place a genuine find.
