The Modernist Athens

The Modernist Athens settled into the former Canadian Embassy on a quiet street that overlooks a leafy residential square in Kolonaki. We transformed the handsome corner building with its many balconies in signature Modernist style, combining casual, contemporary luxury with mid-century detailing and minimalist Danish design.

Situated on the southern slopes of Lycabettus Hill a mere couple of miles from the Acropolis, our neighborhood is famed for its world-class galleries and museums, great shopping streets and vibrant night-time atmosphere. Whether heading out to explore the capital’s famed landmarks, cultural events, foodie destinations and watering holes, or to hunt down the best boutiques, you’ll find the Athens Shortlist at your doorstep.

Rooms are tailored to individual needs and cut from the same cloth with customised furniture, mood lighting and seamless comforts accessorised by such considered details as Marshall speakers, and exceptional mattresses. Our luminous spaces are fitted with curtains for filtered daylight, as well as double-glazed windows and block-out blinds for optimal sleep. Solid wood floors in ash blond provide a soft backdrop to custom joinery that combines anthracite timber, brass and black steel, and to verdant accents introduced by plants both inside and out. Ample marble sinks and walk-in showers complete the retro-modern elegance of bathrooms styled in signature Modernist black and white.

A stay at the Modernist Athens is all about a sense of place and a state of mind, conjured by warm welcome gestures and service that feels effortless and sincere, daily rhythms which are swift and discreet, suggestions that personalise your stay, reception around the clock, local know-how manifested in custom craft and contemporary designs, right down to the small objects of our curated concept store, and such unexpected yet all-important details as stamped postcards, a selection of books and the international magazines hot off the press
