In a green garden in the heart of Kifissia, among evergreen trees and lush vegetation, The Twenty One Hotel completely changes its image and transforms into one of the most special and stylish destinations in Athens
A natural evolution of the success of The Wild Hotel in Mykonos, The Twenty One Hotel bears the stamp of Alexandros and Philippos Varveris (Interni, Moda Bagno), Grigoris and Marianna Psaltis, the group of friends behind the acclaimed The Twenty One Restaurant & Bar.
The Twenty One is a hotel relaxed yet eclectic, of understated luxury and cosmopolitan allure. Embraced by nature, serene yet never boring. Personal in style, with a decor mixing hand-picked design together with antiques and works of art, offering service with a gracious spirit. A cultural and creative hub for same-minded, experience seekers, sharing an appetite for art, design and good taste, settling with no less than the best. The eclectic and to-the-point design characterizes the 21 rooms, the luxury derives from the materials, the connection with art and the cosmopolitan aura are diffused in the atmosphere. The beneficial tranquility of nature, combined with the experiences offered by the northern suburbs (close to Kifisias Grove, Syngrou Forest and Tatoi), the creative workshops and the whole philosophy of the hotel make it an escape destination and a meeting point for a demanding public, people with common views and aesthetics who travel either for business or leisure.
Authentic in character and with a different approach to decoration, the 21 rooms have windows or small terraces overlooking greenery, giving nature the role it deserves. In the spaces, modern design is masterfully combined with selected antiques and vintage objects, perfectly expressing the aesthetics of Alexandros and Philippos Varveris, which they represent both at Interni and at Moda Bagno.
The starting point for the decoration was the three-dimensional Punto tile, created by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec for the Mutina house, which sets the color tone, starring on the walls. The details of dark wood and bronze refer to the luxurious past of Kifissia mansions revived with a subtle, modern spirit. This sense of a new stylistic balance extends to the bathrooms, clad in marble and terrazzo and equipped with brightly colored furniture – yellow, blue, and green. Essentially, the style exudes the urban aesthetics of the region, but without nostalgia, through a creative dialogue that focuses on the present. As for the atmosphere? It is cosmopolitan, unsophisticated, peaceful and in direct contact with the environment. A small hotel, both luxurious and intimate, that offers the best services to its guests.
With a history of ten years and being one of the most “timeless” restaurants in the northern suburbs and Athens, The Twenty One Restaurant & Bar is now the hotel’s core. And if until today it was intertwined with evening outings, now it aspires to become the favorite all-day meeting point. Starting with the very thoughtful breakfast – buffet and à la carte – with free-range eggs, local cheeses and cold meats, pies, organic fruits and juices and of course the best coffee.
And it is continuing with light and healthy dishes for every moment of the day that are also served in the rooms. As for the evening, The Twenty One Restaurant & Bar maintains its familiar, high-standard status with chef Nikos Dimitras relying on excellent raw materials, offering a menu where France, the Mediterranean and Asia interact. Also, The Twenty One has an impressive wine list with 160 selected labels from all over the world, the best spirits, while for the cocktails ingredients are used that are prepared from fresh raw materials.
