Civitel City Hotels in Maroussi Attica

Close enough to the center of Athens yet just outside all the hustle and bustle, both of our City Hotels are in Maroussi, the heart of Athens’ northern upscale business district. The area is home to many prestigious companies, trendy shopping centers, fine private hospitals, exhibition centers and the Olympic Stadium. Their location, right next to the junction of the Attica National Road, offers the privilege of easy access from and to the airport in only 20 minutes, as well as to the famous Corinth Canal in an hour.

The port of Piraeus is very easily accessed by metro (Neratziotissa Station) from near the hotels in just over half an hour. Kifissia, the upscale jewel of Athens with its shops, museums, restaurants and cafes is just three metro stops or a short drive away.
