Welcome to my 3rd apartment in Athens. It's located in central Athens. Right in the city centre 5 min walk from the metro. Really quiet street, with bars and restaurants only a few steps away.
Beautiful family owned home for holiday rental. New, bright, spacious and stylish right in the centre of Athens. Set back from the road and very quiet on the foothills of the Lycabettus hill, so i have to warn you that there is a bit of an uphill walk.
Acropolis, Monastiraki, Syntagma and kolonaki are all a few steps away. The neighbourhood is very safe. There are plenty of bars, restaurants, cinemas, art galleries, fitness centres, minirmarket near the flat. The house is also only 2 stops away from Acropolis and the historic centre of Athens.

I really enjoyed staying in this apartment. It is about 10-15 minutes walk to Syntagma Square, so is quite central. The area was quiet and safe.
The actual apartment has all the amenities that I needed (cooker, shower, TV, wireless internet) and all were in good working order.
It was easy to pick up the keys. I had to ring Foris's friend upon arrival, and he was ready and waiting with the keys.
I would certainly stay in this apartment again should I return to Athens.
Very clean and pleasant apartment, although somewhat spartan furnishings. A quiet street set up a hill, no more than ten minute walk to the metro at the University of Athens. All in all, we were very satisfied and have no complaints. We recommend it.
Thank you for the lovely time in Athens! Everything was quite nice and I enjoyed my stay.
I went to Athens for business and decided to stay at Foris' place.
He was a great host and really friendly, he was always there to help me and guide me.
The apartment has all the necessary amenities and is really comfortable.
As for the location it is great, albeit it is quite a walk to get there because it is uphill but because i used a taxi it was fine.
It is quiet and a really nice neighbourhood and the center of Athens is merely a short walk away even though it doesn't feel like it because of the quietness of the neighbourhood!
Thanks Foris, hope to stay at your place again!
The location is really good. It is a bit up the hill, but really nice, safe and quite. The apartment does not have the view, because it is the ground floor facing the stairs. The master bedroom was perfect, the small one is useless ( not useless if you like small cells ). We had hot water all the time. All kitchen appliances were working good. The heating is AC only, but it is warm if it is constantly on...The apartment is 10 minutes walk from Syntagma and every major location, including Plaka, Efmu etc. The taxi is really cheap, so i recommend it.
I had a great time at the apartment! I came for a business and the location was ideal!
Athens Center without it feeling like it! Quiet, homely and everything was near. Metro was close, all hte main bus
arteries close, and best of all many bars and cafes near, just the right thing to do after a full day of meetings!
The apartment clean as whistle and my host was very friendly and helping, always there to answer my questions and solve any problems I had...
I recommend this apartment HIGHLY!
Excellent location in downtown Athens, about a 25 min walk to the Acropolis. The nearby Panepistimio station is excellently located as well and gets you there in about 15 mins door to door.
There are some tasty restaurants next to this apartment as well.
This is a great place to crash with 2 bedrooms if you want to stay in a nice, local Athens neighborhood away from the crowds, but still want to be walking distance from the attractions.
Apartment was exactly as described. Good location and good sized.
Demis (Foris' friend) was very helpful.
We booked one of Foris's rentals several months ahead. Correspondence between each other was pleasant and prompt. A couple of weeks prior to our arrival, our original booking was switched to another one, larger, closer to town center, and although normally more expensive, given to us with apologies and a discount on our original cost.
We did decide to use a taxi to get us to the doorstep, but coming from San Francisco, later found the uphill not very steep at all. The only issue we had was that we did not have a phone yet and were met with six unmarked buzzers outside the locked entry hall. Fortunately within minutes a nearby neighbor drove up who let us use his phone to call the number we had. Foris's friend, who was waiting for us up in the apartment, answered and let us in. Check-in was efficient despite the midnight hour, and Demi made us feel welcome.
We can confirm that yes, the rooms are starkly furnished and feel cold rather than cozy. And the bedroom is dark so we had to be careful not to oversleep during our resetting of internal clocks. If you plan to do any cooking, the equipment to do so is limited. And yes, there was no TV and the internet was too weak for us to connect. But the bed was comfortable, and the rooms were very clean. The heater worked as did the refrigerator for our restaurant
leftovers. And there is a great cafe with very strong WiFi just three blocks down the hill.
Note: Just below the apartment there is a set of stairs that take you up a road and trails leading to the top of Mt. Lycabettus, a great first activity to get the layout of the city.
The appartment is large, comfortable and clean. It is situated in the centre, so we did not have to use public transport at all. If someone preferes metro instead of walking, it takes only 10 minutes to reach the nearest metro (email hidden)om Foris's appartment to Sintagma Squere is only 15 minutes by foot. I strongly reccommend this appartment.
