About this listing
This comfy penthouse is situated very close to Monastiraki square in the heart of the historical center of Athens at an old office building. It is very nicely decorated and it is completely renovated and offers a magnificent view of the Acropolis and all surroundings.
It could accommodate up to 6 persons, as it has one double bed in the bedroom and two double sofa beds in the living room. Wifi internet connection is available in this apartment.
This unique view and the large terrace are definitely an added value apart from all other amenities. In the entrance of the building there is a traditional local coffee shop.
Only 200m far from Monastiraki square, one could walk all around the Acropolis hill and see the main sights of Athens and at the same time could also enjoy the vibrant life of Psiri & Monastiraki areas. The most important is that everything is within walking distance.

Appartement idéalement situé dans le quartier Monastiraki, très près de l'Acropole et de Syntagma.
Très bien décoré et bien aménagé.
Très bon accueil par Georges.
The loft was really nice and exactly as described in the listing. There was ample space for all four of us, and the view from the terrace was unbeatable. We were only there for one night, but they were very accommodating when it came to checking out and storing our luggage. There's an office that's a quick walk from the apt where we were able to keep our things while we did some sightseeing. They also offer pick up service from the airport, which I would suggest taking advantage of. Two of our friends chose to be picked up, and getting to the apt was very easy. My other friend and I, however, chose to take a cab after our very late flight and the cab driver overcharged us by 30 Euro (because we were obviously tourists and too tired/confused to argue with him).
The people who worked at the office were extremely nice and gave us great tips/ideas for the rest of our travels to the islands. The entry to the apt (through a cafe) was a little confusing at night since the cafe was closed, but it was nothing too bad. All in all, I would stay here again and would recommend to others!
We had a wonderful stay at the loft! The neighbourhood is so Nice and safe! The apartment it self is very Nice and conveniënt. The view of the lightened carpooling at night is awsome. We were waited upon Arrival by Christine, who very gently explained everything to us. We could even check out late, since we could not get a rental car earlier... The building it self is rather run down, the power apartments need Some work, but wait units you reach the top Floor....
Easy to reach by metro from Athens airport. Was perfect location for us to see Acropolis on our one night in Athens. Loved the restaurants down stairs from apartment and the view was spectacular. Would love to visit again soon.
Our family of 5 (2 adults, 3children) stayed overnight at Monastiraki Loft on our last day of our holiday in Greece. Despite arriving early, we were promptly met by George at the front of the accommodation to let us in. He was most helpful and explained how everything worked as well as giving us advice on places to eat, metro etc. The area downstairs as you enter the building looked a bit ordinary, however the apartment was as good as the pictures (if not better) and was a great way to finish off the Greece leg of our trip. I would definitely recommend this place for families.
Spent two nights there in July 2015. Great place! Perfect location. Neighborhood looks a little sketchy when you first see it, (graffiti all around) but it is really a nice safe area! Apt. is located upstairs from the little coffee shop on the street level. Yannis, and all the folks who helped us were very attentive - helped secure a taxi from airport, stored our bags on our last day. We did have some issues with the elevator as there were 5 of us - I recommend having TWO people listen to the instructions in case 1 person (guilty!) forgets . The loft is fabulous - very tastefully decorated, lovely balcony with view of Acropolis. Plenty of room for the five in my family. wish we could have stayed longer!
I felt very welcome with an immediate response and welcome note. Flying non rev standby Yannis was willing to hold the room in case We arrived late, which was very appreciated. They met us at the apartment, showed us around, and answered all kinds of questions. Since we arrived first thing in the morning, and the unit wasn't ready yet, they let us bring in our bags, change clothes after our 19 hour flight and use the facilities before
We left for a few hours, while they cleaned the apartment with our keys in hand.
The apartment was perfect for our family of 2 adults and 2 big teenagers. It was exactly as pictured with an amazing view of the Acropolis. Everything was close by. Metro from the airport dropped us 5 minutes walking from station to apartment. Restaurants and shopping were all around us so everything was super convenient. I would definitely recommend this host and his units. Thanks for a great stay!!
