Athens accommodation, the city of “Philoxenia”
“Philoxenia” (hospitality) was one of the most important attributes throughout Greek history. Since ancient times, Greeks were always accommodating to strangers visiting their city. According to the customs of hospitality, strangers were “holy” and the laws of gods and men protected them. Zeus, the king of the gods himself, was the protector of visitors. The Ancients worshipped this aspect as “Xenios Zeus”, “Zeus of the Strangers”. Nowhere was this more evident than civilized and democratic Athens. Athenians treated even the Persian envoys of King Xerxes that came to demand the city’s surrender, as honored guests. They offered them a good meal and a place to sleep. Also, they listened to their demands and after rejecting them, they kindly escorted them off the city, even giving them gifts! Hospitality as a concept remained strong during the different eras. In Ottoman times, hospitality was essential in spreading the ideals of European Enlightenment in Greek territories. Moreover, clerics, scholars, artists and merchants of Greek descent stayed for long periods in local lords’ mansions and educated the population. After the Greek Independence, various important Europeans were coming to the new country to admire its civilization and rich history. Finally, the famous poet Lord Byron visited Athens and stayed as an honored guest in a mansion in Psirri!
Today, Athens continues to be a center of hospitality. Thousands of travelers each month seek to stay in the city and discover its sights, sounds and culture. They seek to see the Acropolis of Athens, the Ancient Agora and the other ancient monuments. In addition, they want to explore the modern side of Athens, taste the food, savor the drinks, enjoy the vivid nightlife. For all those reasons, they seek Athens accommodation with style and comfort, but in walking distance from the major sights. They seek to stay near a Metro station and to have the extensive Athens transportation network at their feet. Also, they seek to be able to come and go every time they choose to. Finally, they want to have access to the Athens airport and the port of Piraeus. Athens accommodation that combines all of the above, will be the best choice for any potential visitor to the city.
Available Athens accommodation
Athens accommodation can take many forms, like the accommodation in many European and global cities. Flexibility is key to a potential visitor to a city and everyone appreciates having different options to choose from. The historic city, always in the forefront of hospitality, offers the entire spectrum of potential Athens accommodation:
Major hotel chains
Athens is a large world capital and one of the most visited cities on the planet. It is only natural that most international and famed hotel chains have hotels here. Some of them are quite new, but some opened decades ago, becoming landmarks. There are even occasions that the hotel gave its name to an entire area of the center! Usually quite expensive and therefore exclusive, they are places of conferences and other events, with the attendees usually staying there. Business travelers on trips prefer them sometimes, when they need to conduct a series of meetings on site.
Athens is famous for its grand unique hotels, which are not part of a major hotel chain. Sometimes parts of national chains, sometimes individual establishments, they belong to hotelier families for generations. Already established, strong brand names in the internal market, they are mainstays in Athens accommodation. Most times they have no quality difference from a hotel of a major chain, but also no price difference! They sometimes are quite expensive for what they provide to the guest. Because they were some of the oldest hotels in Athens, they are in privileged spots, locations better than others. Also, they have another major downside: Due to the recent economic crisis, essential renovations sometimes got pushed back and that gives them an “old” feeling.
Boutique Hotels took hold of Athens, like they did in most major cities in the world. Athens has been a dream city for boutique hotels! It has some of the most recognizable monuments in the world and a number of large, underused buildings. All those were a great service towards the creation of unique boutique hotels. Moreover, stylish Athens accommodations opened their doors in former mansions, cultural spaces, even workshops. Owners of such buildings added their personal sense of taste and their vision. Architects and decorators brought knowledge. Finally, the end result was a number of unique, high-quality, awarded concepts that captured the essence of Athens and its history.
Short – stay apartments
Athens is now one of the top cities in Europe for short-stay lease, in the context of the sharing economy. Hundreds, if not thousands of home-owners decided to invest in the necessary renovations for their properties. They offered apartments of all shapes and sizes in the best areas of Athens, near Metro stations and major sights. Ultimately, this gave the opportunity to millions of guests each year to discover the city center.
Guesthouses – aparthotels
More youthful in nature and orientation, the guesthouses offer cheap accommodation. Without much comfort and amenities, they are the first choice of groups of younger people.
Areas of Athens accommodation
Most, if not all areas in the city center have Athens accommodation with the desired characteristics. The tourism boom of the last years opened great potential. A new breed of tourism professionals and home-owners alike took already established hospitality enterprises or created brand new! Moreover, areas of Athens that were not that famous, suddenly saw the number of visitors to them rise exponentially. Nearly in every area of Athens you can find Athens accommodation. They include:
Psirri – Monastiraki
The heart of Athens has many options for Athens accommodation. Diverse in its sights, tastes and sounds, it is also diverse in the accommodation it offers. Here one can find short – stay apartments bookable through online platforms, older, established local hotels, famous in their own right. In addition, newly opened premium concept boutique hotels with attention to detail and quality of service. One of the best is Ederlezi Boutique Hotel. Smaller and larger guesthouses with a view to younger, more flexible guests, who are used to cheaper, less comfortable solutions. Psirri is perhaps the best area for an Athens accommodation today. Its location, its rich culture and nightlife and its proximity to all major sights, make it a unique choice!
An area in rapid development, Metaxourgheio is the perfect neighborhood for Athens accommodation. It is a blend of older, yet renovated 4* and 5* hotels and many boutique apartments. A neighborhood that will be the must-stay area for visitors in the coming years. Here, one can find both the Ederlezi Emerald and the Ederlezi Sapphire, in close proximity to each other and only minutes on foot from the Metaxourgheio Metro station!
Syntagma is the most central point of Athens, site of the Greek Parliament and the National Garden. It is the location of older, famous, luxurious and more expensive hotels. Iconic in their own right, they are landmarks and meeting points of Athens, as much as they are Athens accommodations. These hotels are usually the choice of upscale business travelers, but they can accommodate medium – income guests through special offers.
Koukaki – Acropolis
Koukaki is one of the top neighborhoods in Europe for short-stay lease and it consistently features in relative lists. It is perhaps where the short-stay apartment concept rules and every building in the area has at least one. The reason is because Koukaki is so close to the Acropolis of Athens, you can go there on foot! You can find Hotels near Acropolis, other short – stay lease apartments and some elegant boutique hotels, inspired by the simplicity of the classic Athens style. They are however, quite expensive, due to their location, their design and the total investment it took to create them.
The oldest continuously-inhabited neighborhood of Europe, Plaka is picturesque and iconic at the same time! Small paved roads and steps that lead always even higher and eventually “hug” the Acropolis Hill. Small tourist shops, traditional taverns and music halls stand side by side with old churches and mansions. In some parts like Anafiotika, it feels like you are in an island in the Cyclades! The mansions of Plaka, some of them as old as the modern Greek state itself, grace the area. Many of them house high-aesthetics boutique apartments with a great, classic and timeless Athens feel. Furthermore, they have a very special privilege: When you stay in an Athens accommodation in Plaka, you can see the Acropolis from your window!
