Athena Apartments & Studios


#5 of 12 Specialty lodging in Kythira
Athena Apts & Studios is an intimate settlement located in the eastern Kythera above the sandy beach of Diakofti. Guests at the Athena Apts & Studios are treated to an ideal setting, comprising modern facilities and intimate hospitality for a unique experience at the hotel as well as throughout a relaxed and pampered Kytherian island holiday. The graceful coexistence of traditional architectural elements and modern facilities and simple but elegant design touches is apparent throughout the property. Words are not enough to describe the unbelievable view that each of the hotel’s 13 rooms face, but we can definitely define Athena Apts & Studios as the balcony of the eternal blue Aegean sea, where the breathtaking sunrise view will captivate you. Each suite opens to a private veranda enjoying views of the endless blue of the Kyherian sea. All the spaces are comfortable and luminous, decorated with modern furnitures selected with taste. The hotel is located 1 km from Kythera Port, 11km from Kythera Island airport and 150m from the sandy beach of Diakofti .Through its unique location, Athena Apts & Studios offers its guests a combination of hospitality and tranquillity while enjoying each of the island’s beauties.

This was a great place to stay. We had everything we needed and the manager provided us with information about the beaches and restaurants in the area. The room was comfortable and very clean, we will definitely return next year!

Definitely the room does not worth 120 E per night, not including breakfast. Too expensive, far from the island's center, and frankly the beach close to the hotel was not that good. The only plus was that the room was clean, as the cleaning lady was taking care of the room every

Dear Mrs Maria We are sorry to hear that you did not have a good time in Diakofti. It is really sad that you did not like the area too and the sandy beach which is considered as the best of the island. Nonetheless the other facts are not presented well. To start with you have booked a sea view apartment with two areas in the highest season. It is true that the price is high , but it is a global thing I am afraid. Of course there are less expensive apartments but you knew from the beginning that this is a self catering apartment. Secondly and most important, you have reserved your apartment quite early on June. We have been informed on the same day , soon after your reservation , that you need to arrange and inform us about your transfer tickets. You only did that on the last days of July or beginning of August. The result was that you could not find any ferry tickets. Not only we have changed your dates, even though it was in the last minute, we have helped you to book your tickets and we have charged you one night more as it was in the initial reservation. Initial reservation 5-12/8 and you stayed 7-13/8. Thus we lost two nights , two nights that we could not rent as it was in the last minute. Finally the price was 104 euro per night and not 120 euro. The actual reservation was from booking.com. In addition, the couple has shown no respect to our area and our attepmt to assist them in the best possible way , when they have called us in the last minute and were complaining that there are no ferry tickets, as it was our mistake or the company's mistake. The result of course was that they did not have a good time and that is always sad, as we are talking about their holidays, something we totally respect.

An excellent choice. First of all we were upgraded to a better room free of charge because of availability. The owner was very friendly and shared information about the island (gave us maps and recommended good beaches). The rooms were kept very clean (daily change of sheets and

They regretted that they couldnt collect us from the harbour at 11pm ( situated approx. 1,2km from harbour), yet they dropped off other guests at the harbour the following morning. We had to pay for a taxi,where other guests were dropped off! Shocking! The price was

Dear Mrs Anthea We would like to apologise for not offering a free transfer. However this is not our mistake. It is a fact that the taxi drivers have often complained that we pick up our customers although we do not have a mini bus. It is a reality that most of the apartments in the area of Kythera do not have a mini bus as most of them are very small family business. Therefore we try to assist our customers in the best way possible and we often give them a free transfer to the port or sometimes in the airport. It is a real pity as we are trying to be as helpful as possible and definitely we are not those you should blaim. As for the price of the room , I believe that the price was normal for a two day staying during the high season, and you have been biased from the lack of transfer. All in all , we are trying to change the situation with the taxi drivers and we hope to be able to serve our customers in the best way possible. This review in our opinion is not representative and is a unique review of a guest that has formed an opinion through an incident that has its roots in third parties. Our reviews in other sites are excellent.
