Aria Hotels, the privately-owned boutique hotel and villas company known for its emphasis on authentic hospitality, welcomes Urban Stripes into its portfolio of properties in Greece. Housed in a stylish Athens apartment building known as a ‘polykatoikia’ (literally ‘multiresidence’ or condominium), it dates from the 1960s during the second phase of modern architecture in Greece which flourished between 1950-75. Situated centrally in the hip and fashionable Koukaki neighbourhood, it offers accommodation in eight spacious, individual apartments, each with modernist design and breathtaking views of the city, only 30 minutes from the airport.
Ideal for business travelers and tourists alike, the apartments are distributed across six floors and configured to accommodate between two and five visitors each. The Urban Stripes signature look incorporates clean, minimalist lines, optimal space and maximum natural light. The design is complemented by the use of high-quality materials such as mosaic and marble throughout, with modern appliances and facilities, including free wifi access. Private parking is also available.
Offering a secluded and tranquil haven in the heart of Athens, the apartments combine prime location with unique architecture and striking views. The higher apartments are ideal for taking in the vista of this vibrant ancient capital and include spectacular Acropolis views.
The relaxed, charming neighbourhood of Koukaki is just a stone’s throw from the Acropolis mount, the Acropolis Museum and the Odeon of Herodes Atticus. The Philopappos Hill, the National Museum of Contemporary Art and the metro stations of Acropolis and Syggrou Fix are also nearby. Mainly residential, the area is considered a true gem, highly popular and safe with two main pedestrianized streets (Olympiou and Drakou) and numerous cafes, bars and restaurants, which combine to give each visitor a truly local and authentic experience.
