About The Pinnacle Athens

Designed in the 70’s by the prominent architect Varagis in the style of Athenian Modernism as one of the first shopping malls in Greece, The Pinnacle Athens is the tallest building at the Commercial Triangle resembling a mini skyscraper! A complete renovation project in 2019 resulted in a “classic-with-a-twist” complex of Spacious Suites (25 to 65 square meters) in the style of Urban Eclecticism. Bespoke furniture, gold & silver details, soft colors, velvet curtains, wooden floors & vintage wallpapers compose a scenery of comfort and urban luxury. English teapots, toile de jouy fabrics, old keys & hats along with paintings & gravures, were chosen one by one by antique shops to give a familiar & welcoming character in every suite. Awarded as “Best Urban Stay” and Highly Commented in the categories “Best Suite” and “Concept of the Year”, within its very first year of operation, The Pinnacle Athens is an on-going-project, so our guests are never bored but on the contrary discover something new every time they choose to visit us!
