About City Circus Athens

City Circus the ideal spot to rest your wandering feet and dreamy head. It's not just accommodation we offer. We want to get you involved in our modern, moving, sexy, throbbing city. Athens is not a patchwork of ancient artifacts. It is not a stopover to some (undeniably gorgeous) islands. It’s an ever-evolving, dynamic habitat to 5 million people, each one pretty fascinating in their own right. We challenge you to live, love and play and-- if you are so inclined--perform here with the rest of us.
Our staff will be thrilled to show you all that Athens has to offer. We hand out a plenitude of free maps, festival schedules and generous advice at our reception. And if you’re feeling overwhelmed or need to mingle with other fellow travelers, you can chill out with one of the most magnificent views on our terrace. Just sit back, relax and enjoy the Acropolis right in front of you.
