About this listing
The house is located in one of the oldest and picturesque neighbourghoods of the center of Athens, called Ano Petralona. It is situated at the feet of filopappou hill right across the Acropolis.

I share the house with my flatmate Panos and we both enjoy hosting and meeting new people from all over the world.
You will have at your disposal a large bedroom with a double bed and a private sitting room with eastern orientation and great shinning mornings! The kitchen is fully equipped and functional as is the bathroom.
Behind the kitchen a spiral ladder leads you to the roof garden that you can enjoy day and night and is the perfect place to relax.

Super appartement très bien placé (acropole, bar et resto à 100 mètre, idem commerce dans un quartier pas touristique)
Super accueil, merci Christos
Christos was very helpful and made us feel very welcome. He was a great host and even arranged for a taxi to take us to the port.
Nice neighbourhood, nice place and very nice terrace. Everything was well organized and we had a real "home feeling". I would definitely recommend this place and come back.
We had one night in Athens and this was a perfect place to stay. Amazing roof terrace and 10 mins walk to acropolis. Christos was away so we has the apartment to ourselves.
We really liked this apartment, Christos was very welcoming and we had a lot of space. The area was really good. I warmly recommend this apartment.
Staying in this cool Athens home was just great. Christos was extremely welcoming and helpful when we arrived and helped us settle in nicely. The roof garden is a really nice feature of the home - how often do you get such an open space in the middle of Athens in which to relax in.
The location is great - it was close to the main tourist areas but away from the noise. The green view from the bedroom balcony was another surprise so close to the centre of the city. There are some great tavernas and bars in the area as well - with more close to the Metro station. The restaurants of the tourist area was a 15 minute stroll away. The entire time we stayed in Christos we walked everywhere not needing to catch any transport at wall.
He was very welcoming and we shared several evenings on the roof sipping cold Rose or Red wine and chatting as if we were old friends.
This was the highlight of our Athens stay and we can not imagine the days we spent in the city in any other way. We would visit him again in a heartbeat. What a great time.
Christos' friend, Jason, welcomed us while Christos was away and was kind enough to wait for our late arrival !
Prepared and explained everything abd more :)
The apartment is great, obviously the highlight is the rooftop, magic !
Definitely a great location, everything is close and there are several cool tavernas around also !
