Moon and Stars, in the shadow of the ancient Acropolis

The 1920s Art Deco building stands, tall and beautiful, in the shadow of the ancient Acropolis, which you can contemplate from the hotel’s rooftop with a drink in your hand later on. The hotel takes its mysterious name from the former owner’s most-loved toy. Ascend the elegant spiral staircase from the lobby and prepare to get acquainted with your room. Whichever of the hotel’s five charming rooms you’ll call home, you can be sure that it will be equipped with a soothing, sophisticated interior and a unique view of the streets of Athens. Throughout the entire hotel, let your eye be drawn to some of the building’s perfectly preserved original features, from a sink carved in Greek marble to exposed wooden ceiling beams.

Your hosts, Theodore and Vaso feel more like friends than hoteliers, exemplified in their generous offer to use their bright red Fiat 500 to explore the crumbling streets of their beloved city. Although at the Moon and Stars you’re ideally placed to ramble this effervescent city on foot, an opportunity such as this is indisputably too good to miss…

Taste the flavors

Taste the flavours

A delicious Greek-style breakfast is served in the guest room and features local products, including honey and peanut butter from Attica as well as thick, creamy Greek yoghurt and seasonal fruit. Don’t forget to ask for a typical Greek coffee, too – strong and fragrant, it’s the perfect way to wake up!
Lunch and dinner are not provided at Moon and Stars, but the hotel’s location in Monastiraki is conveniently close to a variety of cafés, wine bars and family-run tavernas. Theodore and Vaso enthusiastically make great recommendations.

Focus on sustainability

Figs
Like the fig tree roots, the property is constantly addressing many sustainable tourism areas and excelling in most fields.

The hotel’s building has been sensitively renovated with sustainability in mind.

  • It is a 1920s art deco building that was left abandoned for many years before being spotted by Theodore and Vaso, an accomplished interior designer. The couple fell in love with the building and its story and set to work having it carefully renovated with a view to keeping as much of the original building as possible.
  • To give the room's character, the couple has recycled old pieces of wood, marble and tiles. 
  • To ensure guests are comfortable, each guest room is light, bright and filled with fresh air and the low-energy air conditioning and heating system can be individually programmed. 

Explore the location

The Moon and Stars is situated in Monastiraki, a stone throw from the Ancient Agora and the Temple of Hephaestus. The hotel is also conveniently located for access to the Athens metro. Monastiraki square is right on the doorstep and you can also explore the elegant neighbourhood of Plaka, with its fabulous selection of restaurants and bars, just a short walk away. Don’t miss the chance to zip around the lively streets of Athens in the couple’s nifty Fiat 500 in its eye-catching crimson shade. This way, you can also venture further afield and explore the surrounding countryside or visit sights such as the Temple of Poseidon at Sounion.
