In search of a family-sized holiday apartment in the heart of Athens? You've found it at Acropolis View Beta Penthouse.

Inside, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms provide ample living space for families or groups of adventurous friends, sleeping up to 8 people. And while the modern interiors are impressive, it’s the wraparound balcony and landscaped roof terrace that set this sleek Athens pad apart! It's 5-star comfort, without the 5-star price tag.

ROOMS WITH (OUTDOOR) VIEWS

Beta Penthouse comes with a city-view balcony, perfect for starting the day with an alfresco coffee. In the evening, head up to the roof terrace, shared only with our AlphaPlus Penthouse next door, and enjoy the shimmer of moonlight on rooftops with glass of wine in hand; or enjoy a special meal under the stars, thanks to the handy gas BBQ grill and plentiful outdoor seating.

For larger groups, Beta and AlphaPlus can be rented together as a spacious duplex, giving you exclusive access to the landscaped rooftop terrace. Wine tasting and catered breakfasts can also be arranged. Ask us for details!

3 BEDROOMS/2 BATHS

We have 3 bedrooms that sleep 8, with 2 more guests accommodated on the sofa bed. Two bedrooms have Queen and twin-sized beds, making them ideal for families with small kids. The third room, an internal room with air-conditioning and double bed, is a cozy option for the teen who wants privacy.

The two full baths come with all you need to refresh after a day's sightseeing. Each comes furnished with organic Greek bath products and fluffy robes. One bathroom has a hydro-massage walk-in shower, while the second features an American-style combo of jetted tub and hydro-massage shower.

AUTHENTIC ATHENS

You’re right in the center of it all at Beta Penthouse. Gaze over your morning coffee as Athenian life unfolds around you. Just outside, in the 4 “platieas,” or local squares, you'll find kids at play and neighbors catching up before heading to the nearby farmers’ markets.

The tree-lined street is full of cafes and restaurants – take your pick and discover some of the best Greek food in the city. The area is favored by locals in the know and travelers after a slice of the real Athens.

And when it’s time to see the sights, you’re within walking distance of the historic center and the best museums in the city, like the Benaki, the Cycladic, and the National Art Gallery. Easy-to-navigate public transportation makes it a breeze to visit Syntagma Square and the National Gardens too. You’re also a stone’s throw from the jogging paths and pine-scented playground of the Little Forest of Pagrati.

AMERICAN-STYLE AMENITIES

While the neighborhood offers authentic Athens at your doorstep, Greek Vacation Rentals provides their guests with true American-style comfort once you step inside. You’ll love the charging station for US electronics (no more fumbling with adaptors!) and the fully stocked kitchen, perfect for big, boisterous family dinners. All the necessary appliances are here – think large full-sized washer and dryer – to ensure an easy vacation for everyone.

The imported Sealy Posturepedic mattresses, heavenly high thread-count linens, and sumptuous bath products make Beta Penthouse feel like home (only better).

We believe our Acropolis View Beta Penthouse is the perfect place to live like a local - make it your chic home-away-from-home in downtown Athens.

Wonderful apartment and great stay.

Date of Stay:

Very clean and spacious. Close to everything and very good area. Safe to walk at night. It’s equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay.

Thanks we enjoyed our short stay very much.

Date of Stay:

The apartment was lovely and clean plenty of room for the 4 of us.

Very clean and had a nice welcome basket. My only issue is that it is not well marked from street.

Date of Stay:

Clean accommodations with washer and dryer. Also supplied well for our stay. A little difficult to find for taxi purposes - would appreciate it being better marked.

The beautiful photos don't lie! We loved our stay at this Acropolis View penthouse!

Date of Stay:

Carole (the homeowner) made planning our trip to Athens so easy and the property did not disappoint! We had incredible views and were within walking distance of several fantastic recommended restaurants. Historic sights were a 15-20 minute walk (or a $5 euro cab ride) away. Watching sunsets on the rooftop patio after long hours of sight-seeing was the perfect end to each day. The penthouse was spacious, modern and very comfortable. There were even several "American" electrical sockets so our family didn't have to argue over who could charge their cells next! Carole went to great lengths to explain the neighborhood, suggest day/side trips and ensure we felt completely at home during our stay. We highly recommend this property to anyone considering a trip to Athens!

Well equipped apartment in lovely area of Athens

Date of Stay:

Thoroughly enjoyed staying in this well equppied apartment in Pagrati area of Athens. The apartment had everything we needed and was surrounded by local amenities. If I were to visit Athens again, I would certainly use these guys. The view from the roof terrace was breathtaking.

Great Place!

Date of Stay:

Great place! Carole has done a great job with it. Lots of upgrades, very clean. Full blowing air conditioning, fully furnished kitchen, washer and drier, etc.

“Great space with amazing views, beds and outside living terrace”

Date of Stay:

The Acropolis Beta was perfect for 6 of us. We enjoyed making breakfast and talking before we went out. The beds were the most comfortable I have slept on in Greece, and believe me, I travel to Greece often, they do not exist! Modern kitchen with everything you could want. The bathrooms, although typically european in size, are new and modern, spotlessly clean and the bath towels plush, colorful... better than mine at home. The amazing thing about Athens is that, even in February, you can enjoy the outdoors and breakfast and drinks on the terrace. Our group of 6 had a great time with the terrace as our base of operations and we explored and walked EVERYWHERE! The apartment is just the start of the experience. Carole knows the best places in Athens, the best food, the best coffee! We spent time with Nadia on a exciting food tour and sampled and sampled and sampled! I am glad I found Carole and RealGreece and this apartment and I am looking forward to returning on my next trip in the fall.

Love This Apartment!

Date of Stay:

Four of us stayed in this really cool apartment. We just loved it. It was in a convenient location, in a not so touristy section. Carole had all the details worked out for us. Nadia was there when we arrived and got us setup. The apartment included access to the rooftop patio which had great views of the city. Nadia gave us suggestions for nearby restaurants and grocery stores. We really liked Alexanders Restaurant. They were great and very accommodating. We found out about a Free Athens Walking Tour that was a great start to our exploring. It took about 3 hours, but it was really good. Our first full day in Athens was Greek Independence Day, so there was a big parade. It was fun. After the parade we did the walking tour. Carole offered several options, including a Foodie Tour, which we did. Nadia took us all around the city center market area, stopping at several spots for sampling or meals. We really recommend this. It was great. We would definitely consider this rental again if we came back. It had all we needed and more.

Sehr guter Service und Qualität

Date of Stay:

Von der einfachen Buchung über viele erläuternde Emails und den Top-Service vor Ort mit dem Abholservice und Nadia als lokalem Manager eine tolle Erfahrung, welche unsere hohen Erwartungen sogar übertraf. Ausstattung ist sehr hochwertig. Vielen Dank für perfekte Urlaubstage on Athen.

Accommodations were perfect!

Date of Stay:

Accommodations, space, decorations, location were perfect. The owners and staff were so helpful and kind. When we return to Athens this will be the first place we look for a place to stay. Our group consisted of my husband and myself, 4 kids aged 20-14 and my mother in law and all were happy with the space. Loved the rooftop terrace.

A Great spot to stay in downtown Athens!

Date of Stay:

We stayed here for 5 days while we explored Athens and the surrounding area. All the famous sites were within easy walking distance and we were able to take a couple of day trips to Corinth and to the Temple of Poseidon. The apartment was well furnished and had everything we (two couples in our 50's) needed. Carole had a lot of good suggestions of places to eat in the area and we went to many of them. Thanks for all your suggestions, Carole1

Greek Vacation

Date of Stay:

We loved staying here. The apartment is fantastic. It has everything we needed and is really comfortable. We loved the balcony and the view of the Parthenon at night. It is convenient for walking and exploring Athens. We only took a cab back once after a busy day with the food tour and Parthenon tour. Carole is extremely timely and helpful. She was able to arrange several wonderful tours and transportation for us at the last minute. We really appreciated her help. Thank you!

Fantastic place and Excellent service

Date of Stay:

This apartment was fantastic for my family of 6. Extremely clean and had everything we needed during our 3 days in Athens. Carole made sure we were well taken care of (even when our flight into athens was cancelled....which made us finally arrive around 2am). 5 stars for the place...and 5 stars for the service!!!!

Amazing Athens!

Date of Stay:

While a great apartment with everything as promised and more, the best part was the service offered by Carol and her team. It started when our flight was delayed (the day of!) and we missed the connection and came in 8 hours later than expected. We wrote to Carol and she said no problem everything will be taken care of. Sure enough when we got out of baggage after midnight(!) there was Niko waiting for us, and when we got to the apartment Nadia was there to explain everything to us. Carol continued to be responsive throughout our stay. Fully furnished and well stocked with everything and plenty of room for everyone. AMAZING! roof deck with views. 2 minute walk to grocery, bakery, coffee, pharmacy, etc. Don't miss the amazing farmers market if you are there on Tuesday! Easy access to all sites. taxi stand outside the door and we went everywhere for around E5. Don't book anywhere else until you check availability on this apartment!

Great apartment

Date of Stay:

Great apartment, very nice to have balcony and roof terrace. It has all you need.

Review on Acropolis Beta, 3 bedroom 2 bathroom

Date of Stay:

Overall, our experience in this apartment was pleasant with a couple of exceptions. The inside bedroom shares a door with the apartment next door. Unfortunately, it was extremely noisy in this room as we could hear every noise, including conversations that were taking place with our neighbours. The other two rooms were great. Mattresses were extremely comfortable. Air conditioning in every room is a bonus. The view from the terrace is incredible and a great place to end the day and watch the sunset. During our stay, the lock on the front door had been changed, but wasn't working so getting back into the apartment proved a challenge as our key would not work. Nadia, our food tour guide was wonderful. She has a great knowledge of the city, is very pleasant and you can tell she loves what she does. When my sister's flight was delayed, Nadia was very accommodating in working around her schedule. If you don't need to use all 3 bedrooms, but would like the extra space, I would stay in this apartment as it is in a great location quite central to catching buses/taxis to all the key sites.

Great apartment in the center of Athens

Date of Stay:

There were 4 adults staying (a couple and 2 singles), and the apartment was quite spacious. It was a record heat wave in Athens, and having separate air conditioners in each room was great! And having access to the roof garden and views was a big plus. We arrived to a basket of snacks, a bottle of wine, and a bottle of Ouzo in the refrigerator, so we could be thoroughly prepared for our stay! And our hosts couldn't have been more gracious and accommodating. All together, a wonderful experience that we hope to repeat!

Wonderful apartment with nice terraces

Date of Stay:

We (a group of 4 adults and a child) spent 5 days in Athens and our stay in the apartment was great. The apartment is well located: outside the tourist area but close enough to it (some days we walked, other days we took a taxi for 4€). The apartment is spacious, comfortable, superclean, stylish modern decoration, lots of terraces and plenty of sun-light. It has everything you need: 3 rooms with very comfy beds, kitchen with all the kitchenware, dinning table, 2 bathrooms with lots of towels, shampoos and hair drier, and of course wifi. Supermarkets and bakeries are in the neighbour area. The host was very helpful and welcoming both before and during our stay. We would definitely stay here again next time we come to Athens.

Incredible apartment. The place has everything you need, is in a great location, and Nadia and Carole make sure you're more than comfortable. Will stay here next trip to Athens

Very nice place

Date of Stay:

i was there with colleageus during a buysness trip. very nice place. helpful hosts. very well equipped kitchen.

The Heart of Athens

Date of Stay:

It was amazing to get a chance to "live" in the heart of Athens for 2 days prior to our cruise and 2 days after our cruise. The 2 different apartments we were in were well suited to our traveling group of 4; a couple and 2 single adults. The staff was outstanding in responding quickly to our needs or questions. Very helpful in many ways. Thank you for the experience of a lifetime. Carmen and friends

Perfect!

Date of Stay:

The apartment is exactly as described and the welcome basket of tea, coffee and olives was a nice touch. The check-in process is easy and their liaison person spoke excellent English. It's not quite a traditional airbnb - more of a vacation rental company that offer airport collections and tours as part of their service. Payments etc need to go through their website rather than airbnb and they do require you to use their driving service if you arrive late. We did and the driver is excellent, with great english, and it is worth paying the extra euros for their service compared to a standard taxi. We also booked a tour with them but were a little disappointed as it wasn't quite as described and changes were made which we didn't find out until we were in the car! But the apartment is fine for what we needed with a well stocked kitchen, comfy beds and even bathrobes. We would stay in the apartment again if we come back to Athens but would probably consider another company for tours etc.

Great Apartment With a Wonderful Owner & Host!

Date of Stay:

I spent three nights with my wife and two teenage children at Acropolis View Apts (I believe we were in Beta). Everything about the apartment was first class and made for a very easy and relaxing holiday. Bedrooms were all very comfortable, kitchen was fully stocked, location was great with plenty of shops and restaurants right outside the door, and Carole was a great host. Booking was very simple, as was arrival, and Carole had plenty of useful tips. We also booked a stay on Tinos through Carole (covered in another review), so combined we had a great city and island vacation. There is always a little concern when booking an apartment or villa on-line as you do not always know what you will be getting, but in this case everything was exactly as described. The apartment offered plenty of space for the 4 of us, and we made good use of the rooftop for evening drinks. Our normal schedule was to walk or taxi (taxis readily available right outside and very reasonable price) to the main sights in the morning, return late afternoon for happy hour or a siesta, and head back out again for dinner. The walk was around 30 minutes, so short enough to walk, while the taxi ride was 5-10 minutes depending on traffic. Overall a very convenient location. We booked transport from the airport and to the port with Carole, which made the transfer quite easy and comfortable. Also took a couple of Carole's dining tips which were great and a little off the normal tourist route. Also had a great welcome basket which was very appreciated after a long flight. Overall had a great stay and hope to return

Perfect Vacation Apartment in Athens

Date of Stay:

We were traveling as an extended family group. Grandparents, adult children, and one 6 year old grandson. The apartment was beautiful and conveniently located. We have rented apartments all over the world, and this one was the best equipped. It had everything you could possibly need. The beds were very comfortable, the view of the Acropolis from the roof deck was gorgeous, and the local bakeries and grocery stores and restaurants were great. Carole was amazingly helpful in setting up activities and helping us plan our visit. Her driver, Nick, made getting around with 2 seventy-year olds and a 6 year old possible and easy. If you are going to Athens, I cannot recommend this apartment highly enough!

Awesome

Date of Stay:

The rental property in Athens Greece was awesome. Perfect location close to all. Air conditioned and washer. views and balconies.

Lovely, Clean, Modern Apartment

Date of Stay:

Carol was great from our planning stage to our final drive to the cruise ship. . She sent me various information that was priceless! She arranged for our airport pickup, breakfast, and tour guides. Our tour guide for the Acropolis and various other sites was Maria. She was young, energetic, and very knowledgeable. I am very picky about my tour guides and she was a 5 star. We also had Nico, he was a tour guide as well as a driver. I cannot say enough good things about these two people. I would ask for them!! The Apartment was perfect for 3 women. It was in a safe neighborhood that had everything you need, from groceries, clothes, restaurants, pharmacy, and coffee shops. Our only complaint was not enough toilet paper and the stand up shower needed some kind of shelf. (both minor inconveniences) The air conditioners worked great, which was needed. The balcony and roof terrace were amazing. Bring earplugs, because you are in a city, and if you are in the front bedroom, there is noise. A price to pay for location. I would highly recommend this property for all the reasons you rent an apartment. Location, utilitzation of area, conveniences in the apartment and outside of it.

Great Apartment, Great Experience.

Date of Stay:

This is a wonderful apartment. It is in great condition and is very well kept. Nadia the resident manager is very nice and helpful. She took us on a Foddie tour and it was great but because we have to eat gluten free we were unable to partake in some of the cuisine :( The rooftop patio that we shared was amazing and we would eat out there at night and see the sunset beside the Acropolis. You can conceivably walk to everything but it is a decent walk to get there. If you have mobility issues you will need to take a taxi. The neighbourhood the apartment is in provides a great Athenian experience as it is far enough away from the crowds. The only negative is the one bedroom can be a little loud at night and in the morning with honking horns as it closer to the main road. Other than that you cannot go wrong with this apartment. Carole and Nadia are both very professional and take very good care of you from start to finish. I highly recommend this property for people looking to live among the locals for a while, enjoy walking and sightseeing and love watching a gorgeous sunset on a rooftop patio.

Wonderful Apartment, Wonderful Owner and Staff

Date of Stay:

We stayed in the Acropolis Beta in early May of 2015. The apartment is really terrific - everything looks very new and high-end and is extremely clean. There is a full kitchen with pots and pans, plates, cuttlery, etc, a jacuzzi tub, a delightful outdoor terrace with very comfortable furniture, and truly fantastic mattresses - very firm but still soft! Also there is so much room - three spacious bedrooms with extra fold-out beds in two of them and a lovely living room. The apartment is well stocked with everything you might need down to fresh towels, bath products, and a complimentary bottle of ouzo! Carole, the owner, goes out of her way to make you feel welcome - we had a yummy basket of goodies in the apartment on our arrival, and her suggestions for places to eat and how to get around were spot-on. Finally, the apartment is in a really great location, walking distance to the Acropolis (my kids are 11, 9, and 6 and they managed the walk with ease) and near restaurants and shops and anything else you might want. We can't wait to go back. Thanks to Carole and her whole team for making our Athens experience so enjoyable.

Absolutely perfect place to stay in Athens!

Date of Stay:

We stayed in this apartment during our trip to Athens, and it was fantastic. The apartment is really very nice, updated, clean and comfortable. It has several verandas, I lost count as I toured the apartment when we arrived. There is a lovely rooftop deck as well, but we enjoyed the large veranda that was private to the apartment. We sat out there, relaxed and enjoyed the weather for hours there. The beds were very comfortable, my family said the beds were the most comfortable one they had stayed in the entire trip (we cruised and visited another country before we visited Athens and this apartment). I personally was happy that there was a tub / shower combo in one of the bathrooms. Really I can't think of one negative about this apartment. Carole has thought of everything you might need to be comfortable. Location was also key. This apartment is near many good restaurants, a supermarket, bakeries, and near good public transportation. Very central place to stay in Athens. Carole was very easy to work with, she answered all my emails quickly and thoroughly. Made the planning of this part of my trip simple. And last but not least, Carole offers a driver to do airport transports and day trips of all sorts. Two words. Do it. The transports made getting in and out very easy, and the day trips were FANTASTIC. We went to the Temple of Poseidon at sunset. Nothing better, it was our last night of our trip, and probably the most beautiful sunset I've ever seen.

Athens and the Acropolis View Beta were fantastic

Date of Stay:

After a long absence from greece, i didn’t know what i to expect, especially with the economic crisis putting a squeeze on the greek people. As a mother of two young children, i worried in particular about staying in athens. Would it be safe? To my surprise and delight, athens was as i remembered and even better. The people were warm, helpful, and hospitable. The six of us, (4 adults and two children) stayed 3 nights in the acropolis view beta penthouse. The penthouse was clean, spacious, and modern. Carole has thoughtfully equipped it with all the comforts of home (wifi, air-conditioning, fully stocked kitchen, even a flat iron!). The beds were so comfortable too. It has also several verandas in the unit, but the most amazing one is the roof top veranda that wraps around with spectacular views of the acropolis and lykavittos hill. We sat up there every night with a bottle of wine, enjoying the illuminated views of athens at night. Awe-inspiring! The location of the beta penthouse was within walking to all the major sites in athens, which is a huge plus in my book. Athens is a wonderful place for walking, taking in the local ambience. Be sure to visit the new acropolis museum! I loved dealing with carole, the owner, who i found to be helpful, professional, and very kind. In her literature, carole suggested we visit the farmer’s market “laiki” on tuesday. What a treat and a sight for our eyes. The vegetables and fruits were aromatic, fresh, and tasted so delicious – not like what we get here in the los angeles, and for much less money."
