LOCATION - AREA
It is located right beside Kallimarmaron Stadium (where the first modern Olympics were held) at Varnava square, one of the best spots in this area.. This square is surrounded by cozy small restaurants and though in the center, it is very quiet. In this area you may find everything you need and in much more reasonable prices in comparison to tourist spots. It is right next to the awarded gourmet restaurant Spondi and opposite the first Sushi restaurant Sushi Bar.
Kallimarmaro stadium is a great spot for someone to start the sightseeing in Athens. From this point and within walking distance, there are all other Athens' sights (Zappion, National Garden, Acropolis, Syntagma square/parliament, Plaka, Monastiraki). This area is also within walking distance to Kolonaki.
METRO:The apartment is in the middle of two metro stops. Evangelismos and Syntagma (Blue line). Both of them are within walking distance (15-20 minutes walking).
BUSES & TROLLEYS: From Plastira square which is less than 200m far from the apartment, every 5 minutes there is a bus or trolley that passes to Syntagma square (the main square in Athens). It takes the same time if you walk (15-20 minutes).
TRAM: Opposite Kallimarmaro stadium there is a tram stop that takes you to the southern suburbs (beach side)
TAXI: You may find easily a taxi from Varnava square, but in Plastira square there is a taxi piazza. You should know that rides within City Center cost around 3-4 euros. When it's about 4 persons, then taxi may be a better solution than other transportation means.
TRANSPORT TRANSFER TO/FROM THE AIRPORT UPON REQUEST: ADDITIONAL FEE: 35 EUROS (AFTER 24:00, 50 EUROS)
The apartment is in a residential building and general house rules such as no loud noises at inappropriate hours , respect of neighbors and no rubbish in common areas should be strictly followed.
Yannis' apartment was just as shown on the pictures, was in a great location in town, was extremely clean with some nice modern touches like electric blinds. Comfortable beds too.
George, who met us at the apartment, was really helpful and showed us how everything worked, and gave us some nice restaurant recommendations. We met Yannis in the morning as he helped us with our bags, and he was extremely kind and gave us good tips for sightseeing. The transfer service he offers was also super. Very highly recommended, and thank you Yannis!
Appartement très agréable et très bien situé donnant sur une petite place avec différents commerces dont boulangerie.
Nous avons passé une semaine très agréable. Yannis répond très vite aux différentes demandes que l'on peut lui faire.
From the communication with George (yiannis was unavailable) and getting the keys everything was very smooth. George explained everything in the apartment and we arranged the keys with him on leaving. A great apartment - not right on the metro but lots around about and a lively square outside. Recommended.
Fabulous apartment. I chose it because I read all of the 70 plus mostly positive reviews so I knew I was on to a good thing. Took advantage of Yannis arranging taxi to meet us and then later return us to the airport (at 4:00 am). This time there was a different host at our arrival. Not Yannis, not George, but Christina. Once again, a helpful and caring reception on arrival. Everything in the apartment met our expectations, a really nice place.
Stayed two weeks. Many good eateries right below us on Varnava Square. No problem walking to the Acropolis (15-20 minutes). There's a #209 bus in the square or a short 3 block walk gets you to a spot where you can take a #2, #4, or#11 bus downtown. A bus ticket good for 70 minutes costs 1.2 euro, or .6 euro if you're a senior. Very safe area, walk in any direction without worry.
I highly recommend that you choose Yannis' apartment in Kallimarmaro.
Nice and clean apartment! Just as promised. We got to meet George who welcomed us and showed us around. The square outside has everything you need for a wonderful stay in Athens.
We have not found with Yannis but we were very welcome by George who was very polite and friendly, he explained us all about the flat and gave us great sightseeing tips. The flat is very comfortable, safe, clean, warm and have a good stuff. The neighborhood was the only bothers, we can hear many noises from neighbors at night, which may disturb sleep. The location is very good, you can go walking to almost all tourist sites and is also close to several restaurants and shops. We had a very pleasant stay.
