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. It's the perfect port of call for travellers who know how to live in the moment and are at home wherever they set down their bag. Flying light and often solo, expecting seamless comforts, a bit of local buzz, and highly professional yet completely unpretentious service, they?'l find nothing less than everything they need at the Modernist Athens.

There's an urban club feel to the cool elegance and soft sobriety of the décor, against the backdrop of its handsome old bones. Designed to fit individual needs, they come in different sizes, S, M, L and XL, each with their own character, corners, and a sense of order derived from custom lighting and furniture made to measure for each and every space. The only variable are the furnished balconies which differ in size and views.

Room Descriptions


The S is all about compact comforts over 20 m2: a luminous space with solid timber floors, custom joinery and mood lighting; a king-sized or twin beds dressed in fine cotton sheets with high thread count; a walk-in shower and ample marble basin that complete a cool bathroom stocked daily with locally produced organic toiletries.


The M includes a writing desk and furnished balcony over 20-22 ㎡. Solid timber floors, elegant mood lighting and custom furniture are complemented by a supremely comfortable king-sized bed or twin dressed in fine cotton sheets with high thread count, and a bathroom with shower that is stocked daily with locally produced organic toiletries.


Leaving nothing to be desired in terms of its generous 24-30 m2 living space, some L rooms surpass expectations with not just one, but two balconies. The warmth of timber floors and elegant lighting are offset by sleek design in unimpeachable Scandi style, custom-crafted to suit each and every inch of this tailored space, right down to the ergonomics of the often available seating area with writing desk. King-sized or twin beds are dressed in fine cotton sheets and the bathroom with shower is stocked daily with locally produced organic toiletries.


For those who like to spread out in style, this 30- 34 m2 room situated on the top floor offers a truly exceptional sense of space, flowing from an ample living area out onto a large terrace with magnificent views of Athens. Solid timber parquet, modern lighting and custom furniture lend an unmistakeable air of contemporary cool, taken to the next level with a pick-up player and collection of vinyl, as well as a drinks trolley piled with premium spirits. The XL can sleep a third adult or a small family with a child, as well as an infant, with a comfortable king-sized bed, an additional sofa bed and a cot available on request, all sporting fine cotton sheets. The bathroom is stocked with organic, locally produced hair & body products and the below list of perks is a nod to the level of service that leaves nothing to be desired. But let’s go back outside for a moment, to the furnished and landscaped deck with an outdoor hot tub and 180 degree views of the city which extend from the Lycabettus to the sea, and a line of sight to the Acropolis. That’s the real XL punchline.


One eminently practical S + L combo of interconnecting rooms is available per floor. This unique 54 m2 constellation is ideal for larger groups or families, affording a living space with either two king-sized beds or a king and a twin dressed in fine cotton, as well as a double allotment of bathrooms, seating areas with desk and all the good things Modernist. With solid wood floors, designer lighting, elegant custom furniture and a balcony, this will feel like your private apartment.
