The Marblous is favorably located in the heart of the city, close to Athens’ most vibrant neighbourhoods, housed in a fully renovated building dating back to 1938, typical of the mid-war period architecture of Athens.

An important characteristic and element of The Marblous is the key role of the windows, both in the rooms and in the breakfast bistrot at the ground floor; they act as small, colorful “pictures of Athens” hanging on the walls and allowing the visitor to feel the city vibes in the most living and direct way possible.

Women discretely played an important role while creating the core of this concept and their needs are taken into consideration on all levels of its operation. From the first glance, this philosophy manifests itself primarily in its particular aesthetic identity, which combines the timeless texture of blushing marble tiles with a pastel color palette and select elements of curvature and softness, making one immediately feel an elegant sense of calm while creating a minimalist style that elicits a sense of well-being.
