About this listing
Welcome to the latest room of the Alice Inn, secret townhouse extraordinaire.
It's awesome! It's tasteful! It's romantic!
The room is large, with marble floors and a high ceiling. There is a little balcony that opens onto the (quiet) street with a beautiful view of the Anglican church on Filellinon St.
It is tastefully decorated with found objects and one or two items from my personal collection.
You also get the use of the kitchen / dining room and the library / sitting room on the ground floor.
Currently the room has a fairly confortable sofabed only. The listing price more than makes up for the inconvenience :)
A few words about the neighborhood. We are in Plaka, the oldest part of Athens and one of the oldest continuously occupied neighborhoods in the world!

Nuestra estancia en Alice Inn ha sido muy positiva.
La habitación es preciosa, muy grande. Esta decorada con mucho estilo. Tiene un balcón qur debido a las lluvias no pudimos utilizar.
Esta a 5mn andando del metro Sintagma.
Jonh es muy amable. Nos dio indicaciones tanto a la entrada como consejos para continuar nuestro viaje a la salida.
El único inconveniente es el baño que esta 2 plantas más abajo y es muy pequeño. Esto es incomodo pero queda compensado con el precio.
Excelente! Desde la atencion de John hasta las caracteristicas de la habitacion! El desayuno estuvo fantastico. Todo esta muy limpio! Todo es tal cual la descripcion del anuncio! Definitivamente si vuelvo a Grecia no dudo en alojarme en Alice Inn!
A beautiful place just right in the heart of Athens. A cosy house, clean and nicely decorated that realy felt like home. A plus for the breakfast that waits for you in the kitchen. John was very kind and helpful. We would definitely stay again in a future visit in Athens. Thank you John!
Alice Inn is beautiful and spacious. Claire was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was well rounded. The accommodation is in a central location. Walking distance to metros, attractions, and nightlife. Only downside is that the bathroom is downstairs. I would still stay there again!
Highly recommended! It's right in the center of the city, but still on a somewhat quiet side street. Really close to the metro station too. John is a great host, and went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable.
Breakfast is extensive and available until lunchtime (great for lazy mornings), there's free WiFi with good connection, and a living room with comfy chairs and sofas.
The room itself is large, light and even has a little private balcony. The only downside was the somewhat creaking bed and the fact that you had to go down two flights of stairs for those middle-of-the-night bathroom breaks. The bathroom itself was very small, but clean. John is apparently planning to add an ensuite bathroom later this year, though.
All in all, we had a great stay in Athens with the Alice Inn and would definitely recommend it to our friends.
Our stay at Alice Inn was amazing! The day of arrival, we had a massive delay, but John kept in touch with us the entire day so he could make sure we would arrive comfortably at his place. He gave us some golden tips about things that were or weren't worth visiting, but also tips that saved us a lot of money about great restaurants and public transportation. We immediately felt at home. The house was very clean and the service was great (especially for this low price!) I believe that the Alice Inn was part of what made our vacation one of the best we ever had! I would recommend it to everyone, especially to people that want to travel on low budget but still want to have a very comfortable stay!
Great apartment. Really nice and clean and also the owner is very helpful. It is right in the center of athens and about 15min walk to the acropolis. We had a wonderful time, the room is bigger than we expected. The breakfast is great, especially the homemade raisin cookies! The only minor was the bathroom. It was small and two floors down. Nevertheless we felt like home and it was great!
