Recommended place to stay:

Divani Palace Acropolis

Last updated: 30 December, 2023

If you want to be at the heart of the action, the Divani Palace is an excellent choice; the hotel is located within a stone’s throw of the Acropolis, the Acropolis Museum and the Grand Promenade, as well as being surrounded by the buzzy streets of Koukaki. 

And not just that: you are spoiled with 5-star luxury, an outdoor pool and a roof terrace with unrivalled close-up views of the Acropolis rock; so close in fact, that the ancient city walls built 25 centuries ago run through the basement. 

Make sure to book dinner at the rooftop restaurant; try the chicken kontosouvli (a kind of kebab on the spit) – a speciality from Thessaloniki. 

Surrounding area

Koukaki is one of the earliest residential expansions of 19th-century Athens. For years one of the ‘hip’ studenty areas and named in 2017 by US Vogue as the ‘coolest neighbourhood in Europe’ it was ranked 5th in the world by an AirBnB survey. 

Just before the pandemic, rents and evictions skyrocketed and the neighbourhood was in danger of losing its charm, but the tourist dip has thankfully brought a sense of proportion to landlords and it remains one of the best areas to stay in the city.
