O&B location

Experience the historical center

The O&B Athens Boutique Hotel sits in the midst of Athens’ historical centre, blending beautifully into this colourful, vibrant neighbourhood. Showstoppers like the Acropolis and its museum, Thission and Monastiraki, are all within walking distance. But the O&B location also ensures direct and easy access to the hidden gems: Discover quirky vintage stores and antique shops, hip bars, edgy restaurants and deliciously decadent clubs, at a stone’s throw; or head towards the neighbouring area of Syntagma, to take a selfie next to the parliament’s guards, cool of in the National Gardens or shop till you drop in sophisticated boutiques and high street chains. Kolonaki, Athens’ poshest district and stomping ground of the glitzy set, is close by, as well.

Attractions & Experiences

The prime O&B location is also ideal for escapades in the adjacent area of Gazi: A former industrial hub, it is nowadays entertainment central with a plethora of mainstream as well as gay-friendly options. But strolling there is in itself a worthwhile experience too: Start from the pedestrianised section of Ermou avenue, just steps away from the hotel and head towards Gazi, to see history coming alive: This is a part of the vast archaeological park that’s been created in the historical centre of Athens, with a view of showcasing this city’s incredible heritage and past.  

And while there is no shortage of sights and attractions around -flagship and secret, alike, the O&B location places all major transport links close by, with Thision Station at just 50 meters, Monastiraki Station a few minutes walk away, and both Syntagma and Keramikos Stations no more than a 10 minute walk away, offering easy access to all parts of Athens, the Airport and Piraeus Port.
