A modern gem in the unbeatable Plaka! A very spacious and luxurious brand new apartment (constructed May 2016), ideally placed in the most beautiful part of Plaka, the oldest neighborhood of Athens, and just a few steps away from the entrance of the Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum.
While in the center of the city, the privacy of the secluded inner courtyard offers the calmness and peacefulness you will need after the long hours of sightseeing.. A true tranquil escape from a hectic day!!

The space

Only by living in the Plaka can you sense the ambiance of the old city! This will make your entire experience priceless!
The house lies on top of the Ancient Street of the Tripods, a historic route that connected the Theater of Dionysus next to the Acropolis to the Athenian Agora, which made it the favorite “promenade” of the Athenians in ancient Greece. Significant parts of this ancient street were discovered during construction excavations that took place when we were building the house. To reveal these discoveries, the entrance floor has been covered with glass making it transparent to the antiquities below.
When I started constructing this new apartment in the beginning of 2016 I was planning to move in myself. It has a very modern decoration with light grey and white walls, hidden ceiling lighting and glass furniture.
Everything inside the apartment is of very high standards, with wooden window frames and double glazed windows.
Some original artwork mounted on the walls belong to a Greek painter, who is the father of a friend of mine.
The bedroom has a very comfortable King size bed, a sofa, a TV, a bluetooth speaker and a lot of drawers!
The open plan kitchen is fully equipped and the living room has two large sofas (2 meters each) that could serve also as a single bed, a 50inch TV and an office area. Sitting on the sofa, you can look out the window and see the rock of the Acropolis, which is only a few steps away!
The bathroom is also very modern with a large shower area and glass doors that separate the toilet from the rest of the bathroom whenever necessary.

Guest access

There is a laundry room with a washer and dryer available 24 hours
A baby park is available upon request
Guests can enjoy the tranquility of the inner courtyard

Interaction with guests

I love to give my guests recommendations about my favorite restaurants, cafes, bars and also all the must sees and dos in Athens (for short or longer stays) and also help organize trips outside Athens (in the mainland and the islands)
I could also arrange for airport transfers, restaurant reservations and anything else needed.

Great place! Location is perfect; it is very safe and walkable to just about anything you would want to see (Acropolis, Syntagma Square, National Gardens, Zeus Temple). Apartment itself is very clean, spacious (more space than you would ever need to store things). Close to restaurants, and there is a gelato shop just around the corner (you can get a discount there just by mentioning that you are staying in the apartment!) Miltos was easy to communicate with; he speaks English very well, is timely with responses, and has great suggestions about things to see and do. Would definitely stay there again if we visit again!

I had a hard time convincing my partner to stay at an AirBnB. Miltos' house in Plaka was his first experience with Airbnb ever. My partner can honestly tell you that Miltos' home exceeded all of his expectations. You can't get a more perfectly central home than this. You are a few minutes away from the acropolis, excellent cafes & restaurants, the flea market, and sooo many other things. Miltos gave us a thorough explanation of his home and went beyond being a super host when he offered to take us to and from the airport . Did I mention he took the coastal route just so that we would be able to see the amazing beaches Athens has to offer!? Thank you Miltos for your attention to detail, for knowing your city so well and for making our stay in Athens so worthwhile! -The Angeles Family

Everything was exceptional...from the apartment, location and host. Miltos arranged for our transportation from the airport, gave us many suggestions for restaurants. The location was within walking distance to many different sights. We just loved it. Can't wait to stay at the apartments again.

Milto's place was wonderful! If you're looking to stay within the heart of the town, this is the spot. The acropolis is about a 10 minute walk. There are many different restaurants and shops all around the area. If you want to go to the other Squares, it's not a far distance either. The place itself is spacious, clean and modern. We didn't meet with Miltos, but we were greeted with open arms and left with plenty of recommendations to eat. I would definitely stay here again if I come to Athens!

This is a great place to stay in an excellent location. Two small notes that weren't a huge deal, but I'll share. The wifi was not super reliable. We lost connection quite a few times, but in defense, we didn't find great wifi really anywhere in Greece other than a couple places. And the shower only seems to stay hot for about 5 minutes top, so you have to shower quick. Those are two minor things. Overall a great stay, a great home for 2 in a fantastic area.

Thank you Tyler for the feedback! The wifi actually did have a problem losing connection and you had to press the modem's restart button to reconnect. That's why I changed internet provider and bought a new modem! Regarding the hot water, the boiler in which water is heated is large enough for 4 persons taking a shower consecutively. Did you turn on the boiler switch located in the bedroom next to the window? Unfortunately, I was on holidays when you came and we didn't get to meet, but I had left instructions regarding the hot water switch. Thank you so much for the Russell Westbrook t-shirt!!

Great apartment, great location. You are so close to the acropolis, Syntagma Square, tons of great restaurants and shops. The apartment was very clean, with AC and WiFi, although the WiFi was spotty at times. We would definitely recommend this place because we'd stay here again if we could.
