On Dionysiou Areopagitou Street, the most beautiful and lively pedestrian street in the historic centre of Athens, AthensWas is the only hotel of this calibre found on the same street as the Museum of Acropolis and Herodion.

The new asset of Anemi Hotels chain and member of Design HotelTM is a luxury design hotel that has set the bar very high and aims to provide a unique experience to its guests, rich in pleasures and luxury. AthensWas lives in the history of Athens, where the heart of the city beats since antiquity, representing simultaneously its most modern character.

Its design follows the basic principles of classic modernism, with clean lines, simple volumes and natural materials (mostly Greek marble and wood) that star in its rooms and common areas. It also stands out for its light and joyful notes of luxury, whimsical touches, and its intimate and warm atmosphere.

AthensWas features rooms and suites that are distinguished for their glamorous atmosphere and sense of discreet luxury offered through selected furniture and decorative objects. The LC3 armchairs designed by Le Corbusier in 1928, the divan of Eileen Gray (1925) and the stunning table designed by Warren Platner in 1966 are perfectly combined with modern pieces of international design like the Venus chair of Konstantin Grcic, Canta and Biki's armchairs by Toshiyuki Kita, the light fixtures by the Bouroullec brothers, giving impressive notes to your personal hideaway that will surely excite your interest.

AthensWas features an amazing rooftop bar on the 7th floor, from where you can enjoy uninterrupted views of the Acropolis, Lycabettus Hill and the rest of the city, while you enjoy the drink or cocktail of your choice. Its highlights also include the Modern rooftop dining, a restaurant which tackles Greek cuisine with a modern approach, in order to offer you unique culinary experiences, prepared with selected Greek raw ingredients. The restaurant's bar has an updated list of spirits, liqueurs and cocktails –4 signature– and rare wines, mostly from the Greek vineyard.

The boutique hotel is an ideal choice for those traveling to Athens on business, as it features a conference room, which can also be used as a business centre.
