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. Its 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 plentitude of free maps, festival schedules and generous advice at our reception.

And if youre 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.

City Circus is a cozy place with a total of 11 rooms, fit to accommodate a wide variety of needs at various price levels.

We offer standard doubles or twins with ensuite bathrooms as well as dormitories that can comfortably accommodate 4 or 6 people. All beds and mattresses have been custom made in order to ensure maximum comfort and sweet dreams. And if you happen to be taller than average, don't worry, we have you covered.

We have air-conditioning in all rooms and common areas for those warmer than average days or nights. Safety matters to us, so we have installed security locks with key access cards in the rooms and safety cams monitor all common areas on a 24-hour basis.

City Circus is conveniently located just 250m from two central metro stations (Monastiraki & Thission), with direct and frequent service to both the airport and the port of Piraeus.

From the airport:
TAXI: For a fixed price of EUR35 you can grab a cab which will get you downtown in about an hour depending on traffic.

BUS: Alternatively, you can use the X95 AIRPORT EXPRESS bus line, which will take you to central Syntagma station perhaps faster than a taxi. This is the only service from and to the airport that runs on a 24-hour basis (EUR5), so if you arrive too early (or too late) it might be your only option. From Syntagma, you can either get on a cab for a short ride of approx. EUR5 or walk down Ermou str. and arrive at Monastiraki square.

METRO: This is the fastest way to get to the City Center. A direct service runs from 06:33 until 23:33 and takes 42min to get to Monastiraki, which is the nearest metro station to City Circus. Follow the exit to Athinas str. and once at ground level make a right turn for a few meters until you get at Ermou str. (the main Monastiraki square should be in front of you). Turn right to Ermou and then right again at Miaouli str., a few meters down the road. Keep walking on Miaouli str until you see a small square in front of you. Follow the left bend of the street and head on to Agion Anargyron str, which is a pedestrian way. At the end of it, after about 200m, you will arrive at Sarri str. Turn right and you will see City Circus on your left hand side at number 16.
From Piraeus port:
By TAXI, it will cost you around EUR25 and you'll arrive in about 30' depending on traffic.

METRO : You can also use line 1 (GREEN) of the Metro (EUR1.40) and stop at Thission station. As you walk out of the station, turn left, go pass a small church and on the other side, you'll find Sarri str. We are located at No16, after about 200m.

In case you have any special transportation needs, please let us know in advance, and we'll make sure you get all the assistance you require.

Located Near

City Circus is in the heart of historic Athens, housed in a freshly restored, cozy, late 19th century mansion. We're in the hip Psirri district beside numerous eateries and watering holes and only a short walk or bike ride from any sites in Athens that are worth a visit. Our neighborhood is laid-back but just down the street it's bustling with theatergoers and nightly revelers. And if you're feeling lazy, lounge on our rooftop, sip a beer and gaze at the timeless Acropolis.
