Urban Stripes, an urban haven of comfort and luxury, is situated in the quiet, quaint neighbourhood of Koukaki, just a stone’s throw away from the breathtaking Acropolis rock. Located in Veikou street, these fully equipped luxurious apartments close to the Acropolis are right in the heart of what is now a charmingly hip area, that remains non-touristy despite its great popularity. Koukaki is a favourite among locals and young adults, and is brimming with the city’s vibes, day and night.
Retaining its authentic character, our neighbourhood is bound to excite you. Having evolved through time, it is considered a true gem of a location, highly popular and safe. It is both alluringly casual and nonchalantly formal, a contradiction that will enchant you. The sour orange trees that grow among the urban landscape set a pleasant, delightful tone while the stores and shops that appear here and there will charm you with their interesting and unique style. The pedestrian streets of Olympiou and Drakou will be the setting of many wonderful evenings as you discover each cafe, bar and restaurant, like a true local!
Urban Stripes apartments are near the Acropolis Museum and the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, are in close proximity to Philopappos Hill, the National Museum of Contemporary Art, the metro stations of Acropolis and Syggrou Fix and the well known Takis bakery that is something of a legend since its establishment in 1971. From Koukaki you can easily make your way to the wonderful Thiseio, or even Monastiraki and Plaka that are located on the other side of the ancient Acropolis rock. Sauntering around will will immerse you into the Athenian culture that is a seductive amalgam of both the ancient and the new eras.
