Sleek NEW Athens bolthole opens January 2024

The newest opening from renowned Santikos Collection combines urban cool with top-notch comfort – along with a prime location in buzzing Piraeus


Family-run Santikos Collection houses some of Greece’s most gorgeous hotels, each one unique but with a winning combination of laidback comfort and stellar location. Officially set to open January 2024, hotly anticipated urban retreat, ‘Twinn, Downtown Piraeus’ located in Athens, joins the collection – a brand new city hotel focusing on providing comfortable and stylish accommodation along with exceptional service to short-stay travellers with nightly rates from €85 in a Double Room. Along with its hip sister hotel, also located in Piraeus, The Alex, Monte Kastella, which opened its doors in 2019, this elegant boutique sleep has all the right ingredients for a supremely stylish stay in Athens’s up-and-coming seaside suburb.


Like all hotels in the Santikos Collection, exceptional, personalised service is second to none. Konstantinos Santikos, MD of Santikos Collection comments, ‘I am truly delighted to announce the upcoming opening of Twinn. With the success of The Alex, we have taken the next step in expanding our brand and making this vision a reality. Twinn is perfectly positioned with its strategic location near the Municipal Theatre Station and the port, and it will provide the perfect blend of efficiency and comfort to our guests. This property is set to be a game-changer for the modern, on-the-go traveller to Athens.’


A perfect location in Piraeus

Just 15 minutes from downtown Athens, the bustling port of Piraeus and surrounding Athenian Riviera have undergone a glamourous resurgence in recent years. Once the playground of the likes of Onassis, Kallas, Niarchos and Kennedy, the area is being revitalised with a plethora of new restaurants, bars and chi-chi boutiques, drawing style-conscious Athenians down for the weekend. It’s fast becoming a destination in its own right, with quirky museums, cutting-edge art galleries and Michelin-starred eateries such as Varoulko (the place for fresh-from-the-boat seafood). Linked to central Athens by a smart and efficient tram service, it’s close enough for easy jaunts to the capital’s rich cultural attractions, museums and ancient archaeological sites, yet within moments of the glittering Med and its yacht-lined waterfront. This makes Twinn an ideal base for savvy travellers who want to pause in Piraeus before catching a ferry onwards to the nearby islands of Aegina, Poros and Hydra. Visiting Athens for work? Sidestep the usual bland business hotels in favour of a memorable stay that goes beyond a mere bed for the night.


Comfort meets efficiency

Like its nearby sister hotel, Twinn is all about pared-down comfort, clean lines and contemporary cool. 33 chic bedrooms will deliver a haven of calm in soothing hues. Guests are guaranteed a quality sleep and hearty start to the day with the hotel’s sumptuous à la carte breakfast which includes a fusion of continental and Greek options alongside an egg and full barista menu.

The versatile rooftop area is not only the perfect spot to gather for sundowners as the sun sets the sky aglow, it is also an ideal spot for hosting a variety of events and guests can benefit from an on-demand kiosk service.


The beating heart of the hotel will be the communal lobby area - a vibrant hub with large screen broadcasting sports and news as well as a complimentary coffee machine for round the clock refreshment.  There’s also a meeting room and gym plus a self-service bar, open 24hrs a day offering an array of ready-made meals and beverages for guests to enjoy at their convenience.


The hotel will become the sixth spectacular property within the Santikos Collection portfolio, joining Marpunta Resort on the island of Alonnisos, Santikos Mansion in the Pelion region, the Aegean Suites and Princess, both located on Skiathos, and The Alex, Monte Kastella in Piraeus.
