The mid-range Athens Habitat combines the amenities and services of a hotel with the autonomy and comfort of a spacious apartment. Located one block away from Kifisias Avenue -- a street full of offices and business buildings -- this is a popular pick for business travelers. The location is miles away from the Acropolis and other tourist hot spots; if you want to explore the ancient ruins of Greece, this is an inconvenient base. The rooms and suites are modern and bright and deliver on the details, from the contemporary kitchenettes to the furnished balconies. Reflexology and Reiki are on offer to wind down business-frazzled minds (reservations are necessary). It is worth checking out Elements Hotel Apartments, a similarly priced hotel with access to a swimming pool, only 10 minutes away by car.
Oyster Hotel Review
Modern apartment-style hotel
Athens Habitat is a complex of modern apartments surrounded by orange groves. It’s a convenient oasis for business travelers searching for a comfortable, modern stay close to their offices. The atmosphere is quiet and relaxing, with many guests taking advantage of their spacious apartments, complete with kitchenettes and furnished balconies. Athens Habitat is not a popular pick with tourists as it’s far away from the city center. The reception area has orange walls -- that pick up on the color palette from the oranges that hang on the trees outside the door -- plus minimal furniture and artwork of the Athens cityscape on the wall. The cafe is minimal, urban, and cool, with wicker chairs and lilac covers. Overall, Athens Habitat is a modern, clean retreat.
In Marousi, a few meters from Kifisias Avenue
Athens Habitat isn’t in the best location for culture vultures and those wanting to see the ancient ruins of Athens, but it’s in a good location for business travelers and the Golden Hall Shopping Mall is only 10 minutes away on foot. The Helexpo Exhibition Center is a 20-minute bus ride away, and the Olympic Stadium O.A.K.A is a mere two-minute stroll by foot. For transport links around the city of Athens, the Stathmos Isap Marousi train station is about a 20-minute bus ride away. There’s plenty of bars and restaurant options in Marousi, or you could stay in and cook something from the comfort of your own apartment.
Self-contained and tasteful rooms and suites with kitchenettes and furnished balconies
The air-conditioned rooms and suites are divided into Wings A and B, and then there’s another option of studio properties, too. The rooms are like apartments, with a modern and airy feel, along with polished wood flooring and double beds covered in quality linens. Quirky wall decorations include photographs of young children with suitcases, and graffiti-style word art. Each room features something that will catch your eye -- whether it’s a stainless-steel floor lamp with multiple arms lighting up the place in a stylish way, bowls of pebbles, or palm tree wall art. Some feature fireplaces with candles glowing inside them. Rooms have flat-screen TVs and cozy sitting areas. For those who like to cook independently, every apartment has a kitchenette with a fridge and coffee-making facilities. Bathrooms are sleek and modern, with slate gray tiling and a power shower. The furnished balconies provide nice little outdoor spaces.
Reiki and reflexology sessions, plus a cute cafe for pick-me-ups
Athens Habitat offers reiki, reflexology, manicures/pedicures, and a hairdresser on-site, but services need to be booked in advance. The reception area has a cute cafe section for breakfast with large, modern windows that look out onto orange trees. For longer stays, Athens Habitat has a fully-equipped studio near Ygeia hospital. Reception can also assist with renting cars. Wi-Fi and parking are both free.
