A bright beautiful apartment on the top floor (penthouse) with a big veranda balcony. Less than a minute from the train, in Kallithea residential area, in a great location, a safe neighborhood with a police station across the building (24 hour policeman patrol)
With the train so very close to the house it is perfect for anyone who would like to travel around Athens city as well as fast access to Piraeus port (about 20 minutes with the train) It is also close to the only 24hour bus in Athens 040 which has a route from one end of the city, through Syntagma square and all the way to the other end. Taxis available 24/7 on Thiseos Avenue which is a very central street about 5 mins from the house. The location is urban still friendly, (email hidden)ly neighborhood full of little bakeries, convenient stores, pharmacies, super markets, coffee places and restaurants where you can eat traditional as well as modern delicacies. (bugatsa and gyros are some of my personal favorite!) :)
The house has a reliable wi-fi internet access, and lots of space for yourself or your family. There is also a treadmill and some 3 kg weights if you want to keep fit during all of our Greek hospitality! :)
I would love love love to share my personal favorites around the city with you and help make your trip a real pleasure!
The flat is situated in perfect place - close to metro but far away from noisy streets. the view from the terrace is really wonderful! 4 people and even more can feel comfortable in Christiana's place. Christiana is very cheerful and friendly person! She is very creative person so the flat is very similar to her character:) There is no noisy neighbours and we enjoy our stay here very much and recommend this place and the host to everyone.
I booked Christiana's apartment for a colleague of mine for only one night. we met together Christiana, a lovely girl with a big smile on her face. Ready to help my colleague in everything. Unfortunately we're in a hurry and we didn't have the chance to talk with her more. I suggest first of all Christiana as a host and of course the apartment because is exactly as listed
She is an amazing host and an amazing person. She was ultra helpful and friendly and kind, she gave us maps and everything else we needed. She suggested us places to eat and she was a lot of fun to talk to. The place is very clean, big and nice and has a huge balcony with a table and a bed where you can chill and sleep (in Athens that is possible most of the year!). It's also very close to the center. Except from being a great place to stay, it's worth booking even just for meeting Christiana. She is so interesting and she will make sure you have a great stay (but she will get involved just as much as you want her to, so if you want to be lonely, she will leave you alone!) If I need a place again, I would definitely stay there anytime! Thank you Christiana!
We spent 2 nights at Christiana's flat whereas she wasn't there, it was very nice because she arranged it from abroad so we could stay at her place.
The flat is big and very nice with everything you need as it is her own apartment. We had clean sheets and towels ready and could used the fan instead of having air-conditonning (as it is on last floor, in August in Athens, let me tell you it is quite hot...). But we could sleep with window opened as the district is quiet.
The only thing we've noticed only when we arrived and you can't see on the pictures is that this flat is actually her own flat (which is not always the case on airbnb) and it is not as spare as on the pictures, and even a bit messy I would say (it depends on your tolerance), as they were all her private stuff showed to you. i'm just saying that as I wasn't used to it on airbnb and some other people are probably the same.
Still we enjoyed our stay, the location was perfect for us on the metro line from Pireaus, the flat is close to metro (5 min to center), everything you need down in the street and they are good restaurants if you walk to Petralona.
Christiana is a great host and excellent company:)
The apartment is well located, very close to the metro. Easy access to the airport, Piraeus and downtown Athens. Good value for money!
My girlfriend and I had a good stay at this place. Christiana was nice and always willing to answer any questions. The home was clean and close to the metro station. There was no air conditioning and therefore we slept with the balcony doors open due to the heat. Christiana let us wash our clothes and even hung them outside for us when we were gone.
Christiana is totally awesome! She took me out on my first day in Athens, told me what to visit, where to shop, etc. She will do her best to accomodate you and make you feel at home! And the apartment is so well located! Really right by the metro station. Thanks again Christiana!
We spent a lovely time with this lovely and smiley host!
Even if it was a short stay, we felt very welcomed.
We definitely recommend it.
Overall good location with wonderful balcony and excellent host!
Came totally unprepared but she gave good advice for our ongoing journey.
Christiana was such a wonderful host! She gave us so many helpful tips on Athens. She really exemplified Greek hospitality :) Her place was clean and very comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay there and would recommend it to anyone!
