NOT JUST A CONCEPT
Harbor Suites, the first über design boutique hotel in Piraeus, is a beautiful and romanticized rendition of a ship anchoring in a bustling port. This haven is the inspiration of Greek Canadian Marcos Alexandridis, a man divided by two continents for much of his life yet his heart always remaining true to his roots of the sea by the port. Born in 1962 in Piraeus, Marcos is a man that has never felt more comfortable on land as on water. This obvious dichotomy only adds to the richness and complexity of a Greek man with zeal for living life to its fullest, representing the heart of Harbor Suites. Having traveled the world over by plane and by motorcycle, he has created a new concept for travelers wanting to discover places like he has – knowing the ins and outs like a local in an upscale paradisiacal sort of way.
The summers spent in Greece as a child and as a man have given him the opportunity to island hop and know his country very well. The Saronic islands, Aegina, Hydra and Poros are just a sampling of the natural beauty that awaits you, “a stone`s throw” from Piraeus. “While Piraeus has always been a working-class area, for me it represented the true life and heartbeat of Greater Athens” says Marcos.
“With the city`s evolution, I worked on combining the inspiration of boutique-hotel living with a real Greek living experience for people from all over the world!”
Giving you the best of both worlds with Athens not 10 minutes away by car or by metro, as well as the ships to take you away to her beautiful and inspiring islands, Piraeus is the intermediary that allies land and sea. Marcos has in one felled swoop brought all this together by creating a visually stunning ecofriendly boutique hotel with all the necessary tips for outstanding local restaurants, bakeries and markets in a lovely neighborhood as well as offering all those summer island-hopping trips to the visitor who will be instantly considered one of the family.
You won’t only be getting a beautiful chic place to stay with outstanding organic and holistic amenities, you’ll be getting an experience to remember for years to come. You’ll be making memories – and that is what Marcos and Harbor Suites are all about.
