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 this charmingly hip area, that retains its authenticity despite its great popularity. Koukaki is a favourite among locals and young adults, and is brimming with the city’s vibes, day and night.
Having maintained its distinctly Athenian vibe, 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 amongst the urban landscape set a pleasant, delightful tone while the restaurants, cafés, bars and shops that dot the cityscape 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 every nook and cranny of Athens like a true local!
Urban Stripes Athens is near the Acropolis Museum and the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, as well as 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, Monastiraki and Plaka that are located on the other side of the ancient Acropolis rock. Sauntering around will immerse you into the Athenian culture that is a seductive amalgam of both the ancient and the new.
