The apartment is located in a really lively neighborhood full of bookstores, record stores, coffee shops, bars and restaurants.
Right just above the house there is a small park and around the block you can find a laundry, a kiosk, a couple of supermarkets, an organic food market , and plenty of small design shops if you really feel like making a nice present to a friend.
It's a 6 minutes walk from Panepistimio Metro station, 8 minutes from National museum, 20 minutes from Syntagma square.
Other Things to Note
Is good to know that there some narrow stairs leading up to the apartment from 6th to 7th floor, ask me for more :)
if you stay at the loft
try to be soft!
This is probably the best place I have ever stayed! So beautiful, and Nektarios is very kind and has thought of everything.
nektarios vous accueille comme un ami, le frigo est plein , on est chez lui e l'on s'y sent bien
bd, disques, rien d'une location anonyme,
le quartier est super, librairie, petits bar, graf , loin du consumierisme et du tourisme
l'appart est parfait pour un séjour dans le athènes alternatif
My friend and I loved our stay at Nektarios' apartment!
He was really helpful. I left something in Nafplio and he coordinated with the guesthouse there to have it sent to him. He even paid for the postage in advance.
We troubled him with quite a lot of questions (train timings and cab fares) and requests (making a restaurant reservation) but he was very patient and prompt in his responses. Communication before and after check-in was a breeze.
The view from his home is priceless! It's (almost) panoramic and breathtaking - both in the day and at night. The unit faces the west so don't miss out on the lovely sunset!
We took like 101 photos of his 'loft' because it has so much character. Everything (wifi, shower, bed and simple breakfast supplies) was great. The pillows were a little soft for us though but that wasn't a big problem. The major downside was the narrow spiral staircase from the 5th floor to his place. If you have a big suitcase, it will be quite the challenge manoeuvring the steps.
The neighbourhood is pleasant. We were in Athens end July so it was scorching which made the walk to Panepistimio station in the mornings seem pretty long. However, in the evenings it got cooler and we enjoyed the stroll back.
Thank you, Nekt, and all the best in your studies and DJ-ing!
We had a lovely time at the Loft In Space! From the moment that Nektarios met us with such a warm welcome, to playing the final LP from his extensive record collection, we completely enjoyed being in the Loft. A wonderful place to stay and from which to explore Athens. The terrace offers a great space and the air at that height offers welcome relief from the heat of the city. Thank you Nektarios- hope to be back again soon!
Nektarios's flat turned out to be a little paradise in the middle of this beautiful city of Athens. We were very well received and the first night we felt at home. Our favorite thing: the terrace and its superb view of the city and the Acropolis. In addition to its charming interior, the apartment had a great location which allowed us to make a maximum of visit. If we return to Athens we would know where to stay!
It was a beautiful flat and a wonderful experience over all. The location is pretty central.
Accueil très agréable, attentionné et chaleureux . Très bel appartement avec une vue formidable, à découvrir... Merci Nektarios.
