Aesthetic, luxury and the best Acropolis view in the city from the living room, the kitchen even from the bed !!
The flat is ideally situated between Plaka (old town) and Syndagma square, 3 min walk from the Syndagma metro station and a 15 minutes walk to the Acropolis.
This is probably the most privileged spot in Athens. From here you can enjoy a breathtaking view to the Acropolis and the Plaka area both during daytime and also at night when the monuments are lit up. There are very few spots in the city with similar views.
Just beware! You might be so excited to be looking at the Acropolis from bed that you'll have a hard time falling asleep!
The apartment is newly renovated, sunny, very quiet, airconditioned and clean. It has a continuous, open space for the bedroom, living room and kitchen. Fully furnished with eclectic furniture and a vintage touch. It is ideal for a couple but could also accommodate a third person. There is access to a balcony that overlooks the pedestrian street. Finally there is a patio that is not accessible at the moment.
5 star accommodation!!
The antiques, the crystal glasses, the porcelain sets, the old Persian carpets ( they defeated at Marathon but always produce the finest carpets), the top quality natural metal-free mattress, the luxury spacious leather couch, the rainshower thermostat system, the espresso coffee maker, the 50'' led tv screen and the hifi will enhance your stay here.
The cradle of democracy, the birth of theater and philosophy, Parthenon, temples and Byzantine churches, Hadrian's Arch, Temple of Olympian Zeus, an Ottoman era mosque, craftsmen shops, bars, restaurants, cafes, monuments, ancient arches are all a few minutes walk from the flat.
History is everywhere and it is tangible!
Besides the location, the view and convenience it provides, staying in this loft will help guests gain a feel of the multiple layers of Athenian life today.

Great neighbourhood in the centre of town. Although I didn't get to see Yiannis or Mentis, they contacted me several times to offer me information on where to go (restaurants, places to visit, etc). The appartment was luxureous, brandnew, and had a view on the Acropolis. This was one of the best appartments I stayed with airbnb ever, at a reasonable price...
Wonderful: location, view, welcome and everything was as expected. We truly recommend it!!
The flat was everything we could have hoped for; great area, easy to find and most importantly the view was amazing. The flat itself was well appointed and very comfortable, with all the amenities we needed. The contact with Mentis and Yannis was easy but we didn't get to meet them in person due to our schedule but Yannis sent his daughter to meet us and provide the information we needed. Highly recommend the space.
It's a very nice apartment in very central location of Athens. As the first Airbnb experience of us, it gave u very good memories. Thanks a lot!
We (two adults, one 10-year old child) stayed at this apartment for four nights during the first week of February 2015. We were hosted by the owner of the flat, Yiannis. He met us there when we arrived in the late afternoon, gave us information on local restaurants and sights, and had provided some yogurt, milk, coffee for the next day's breakfast. He checked in with us daily via email throughout our stay and could not have been kinder. The apartment itself was exactly as advertised and pictured. It has one large, combined room with a comfortable double bed and sofa, kitchen/dining area, separate bathroom, and that view! The place was spotless and had good wifi. The location is on a quiet side-street in between the Plaka and Syntagma Square areas and is easily accessible to all the major sights. I would highly recommend this apartment to any one considering a comfortable non-hotel stay. [One small thing: it is not heated though there is a space heater. The weather was perhaps unusually warm when we were there (up to 18 C during the day) but it did get a little chilly at night. There is air-conditioning for the warmer months.]
Yiannis made my stay unique. No matter if my request was last minute, Yannis managed to be perfect. I will definitely go back. The space is fantastic.
Apologies for the fact I broke by mistake the shutters.
Thank you for everything!
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this fantastically apartment. The decor was beautiful and view of the Arcopolics simply spectacular. The location was second to none and within easy walking distance of all the main sites. Yannis gave us a very warm welcome and provided us with some great restaurant recommendations. The flat was extremely well stocked - we arrived very late but Yannis had left us fresh milk and nespresso capsules - which were great for our first morning.
