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 newest 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.
One of the highlights is also the new Sense Fine Dining Restaurant, on the top floor of the hotel with stunning views of the Acropolis. In charge of the kitchen is the talented Thodoris Papanikolaou, a chef with a very strong cooking view and culinary imprint. His cooking is famous for its unique character, the sophisticated Greekness and finesse. This results in a highly delicious but at the same time refined Greek cuisine, which perfectly balances between the indelible memory and the contemporary cooking scene, thus revealing his authentic talent.
Apart from the Sense Fine Dining Restaurant menu, he is also in charge of the hotel’s breakfast and lunch card, giving AthensWas its own all-day culinary mark.
