ATHENSWAS AT A GLANCE

ANEMI HOTELS is delighted to present the group’s newest luxury design hotel AthensWas which opens its doors with a specific aim: to make AthensWas the hotel of choice for travellers visiting Athens for business or pleasure and to make their stay a singularly luxurious and pleasurable experience.

  • AthensWas was created to delight visitors who want to experience Athens' tranquil, attractive side, in what has been the heart of the city since ancient times.
  • AthensWas is a hotel which literally lives in the city’s history and enjoys it with an “epicurean composure” all of its own. But the hotel is also representative of the most contemporary and international side of the Greek capital, which looks ahead to the future with unbridled optimism.
  • AthensWas is a Design HotelTM and it is designed in line with the core principles of classical modernism. The aesthetic of its rooms and communal spaces is defined by clean, uncluttered lines and natural materials—chiefly Greek marble and wood. Still, it leaves the eye with an impression which dances clear of the pretentious, gracing the luxury with delightfully deft touches which can often be described as playful. The end result is warm spaces in which the visitor feels utterly at home from the moment they walk through the door—the best possible recipe for a calm and restful stay.
  • Every room has a veranda from which our guests can enjoy one of the most wonderful aspects of Athenian life: the pleasure of relaxing outdoors.
  • AthensWas has a rooftop bar which enjoys an amazing panoramic view of the Acropolis, Lycabettus and the city as a whole, from the mountains that define its eastern and western boundaries, to the northern horizon and the sea to the south.
  • Finally, the MODERN restaurant – the AthensWas restaurant – proposes a different, refreshing and light approach to Greek cuisine, which endeavours to provide novel and unforgettable gastronomic experiences.

VERANDA LIFE

In Athens you can sit outside and enjoy a moment’s peace and relaxation whenever the sun is shining -and it usually is- even in the heart of winter. In the summer in particular, it can seem as though every Athenian household has moved out onto its balcony; it is truly one of the greatest benefits of living in the city. That is why all the rooms at the AthensWas have their own outdoor spaces, which allow our guests to enjoy this aspect of Athenian life for themselves, whether on a small or magnificently spacious veranda. Of course, everything is arranged to make the outside of our rooms a natural extension of the inside and all our verandas are equipped with the comforts and the refined aesthetic you would expect of a top class hotel. Because there is nothing better than returning to your room after a day’s sightseeing or work and enjoying dinner, a drink, or just a few moments of calm on your own veranda.

A WONDERFUL CURTAIN OF GREEN

While the plane trees may be among Athens’ rarest flora, there is a veritable plane-tree oasis in front of the AthensWas hotel. Tall and leafy, the plane trees at the start of Dionysiou Areopagitou resemble nothing less than a delicately-embroidered curtain secluding the singular life of the street from the rest of the city! Of course, from early spring until the onset of winter, these magnificent trees also create a wonderfully cool microclimate around the hotel, while the rustling of their leaves in the breeze is music to the ears. All in all, the atmosphere here is a million miles from what you would expect of central Athens and a source of relaxation and revitalization for all those who feel and revel in it.

A WONDERFUL INNER WORLD

Designed by a celebrated Greek design practice, the rooms, suites and entire interior of the AthensWas hotel stand out for their clear, vibrant and integrated aesthetic, which charms with its cohesion and uncontrived dedication to luxury. That AthensWas does not suffer from the white noise generated by a stylistic mélange gives the hotel a significant comparative advantage.
The refined aesthetic of AthensWas stems from a single stylistic axiom rooted in the core principles of classical modernism and this contributes to the sense of inner peace which imbues its spaces and makes spending time in its spaces a joyous experience. 
Of course, it was a conscious choice to build it this way. Firstly, because it was modernism which revived the timeless allure of the Doric—the clear-cut, unfussy architectural forms we know so well from the classical period of Greek antiquity—and remoulded it in its own unique way. And secondly, because it is classical modernism that has set its seal, more than any other architectural idiom, on the most fascinating aspects of Athens today—it really is the Athenian style par excellence. Throughout the entire period in which the city expanded to its current size, meaning the Thirties through to the Seventies, classical modernism remained popular with Athenian architects who, enamoured with its compatibility with available building materials, continued to build exceptional structures in this style.
Which is why the interior of AthensWas is dominated by Greek marble and Greek walnut, the most sought after and -according to those in the know- most beautiful domestic wood. Our guests can thus enjoy a veritable feast of superb Greek marble from different parts of the country and in a range of unexpected hues both in their private bathrooms and verandas and in the hotel’s communal staircases, floors and walls.
In the rooms and suites, furniture which we would describe today as modern classics, such as the LC3 armchairs which were designed in 1928 by Le Corbusier, the exquisite Eileen Gray divan (1925), or the wonderful coffee table designed by Warren Platner in 1966, blend perfectly with more contemporary creations of international design, such as the Canta and Viki armchairs by Toshiyuki Kita, the Venus chair by Konstantin Grcic, lamps by the Bouroullec brothers and many others that give vibrant fiery tones to the whole which both surprise and impress.
The calm, cheerful atmosphere is further enhanced by the softness – in most cases very discreet –of the lighting. Finally, the printed wall-to-wall carpets with their cheery modernistic designs direct from the swinging 60s underline the whole stylistic composition and maintain it in a state of constant merriment. What is so impressive is that all the hotel spaces feel warm, familiar, joyful and peaceful right from the word go. If one were to describe this emotion in philosophical terms, it would probably be that AthensWas offers its guests ‘Epicurean composure’, thanks to which they will remember their stay in Athens forever, as a magnificent and welcome ‘cure’, comprising real rest and lavish pleasures.
