A beautiful room, with a double mattress bed, a library and a desk
my name is kostas, i live in the centre of thessaloniki in a safe and quite place, like village area, called Euaggelistria, only 4 minutes by foot from the university and 10 minutes from Kamara (the arc in the center of thessaloniki).
In the house there is free internet access, a pc, an HD Projector
and all the accommodations for living. The bedrooms are two, one is a attic(with a double bed) and the other is under the attic with a double sofa-bed. It is pretty easy the parking outside my house.
If you visit Thessaloniki you should also definitely visit The Arch of Galerius and the White Tower.The Arch of Galerius in Thessaloniki, also known as Camara, is, together with the White Tower, the most characteristic monument in Thessaloniki. It is located in Egnatia, in the centre of the city.The White Tower is a 33,90m high, circular tower with a diameter of 22,70m. It has six floors that connect to each other with stairs.
Also after 3 of July until 1 of September i rent the whole house, so you can sleep and do anything you want, like your home.
If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact me.
Very easy, one bus, connection to the central train station, airport and port! ranging from 10mins ride to half an hour! and from 5 to 15 minutes walking to and from the bus station. easy access on foot to the seaside - white tower area (approx 17mins) and 3 mins walk to the mountain! a beautiful walk to the old city (ano poli) and castle (15-20mins) and 10 mins to all shops and stores in the center! day and night life is abundant in the city center and also reachable on foot!
Interaction with Guests
Right now we are two living in the house and we will be sharing the bathroom , kitchen and living room. we spend a good time being here and we often cook and eat together, watch good quality documentaries -and or movies- projected on the kitchen wall (large screen size!) and play music (we have several instruments for all kinds of musical taste)
we do like to sleep around 23.00. if our schedules allow it we usually like to spend time with our guests in as well as out of the house!
we also like to set our chairs out by the street and have lunch or coffee; its a quiet neighbourhood, safe and friendly. we even leave our bikes unattented and find them there the next morning
: ) you may play along with our neighbouring children if you enjoy ball games and stroll around aimlessly!
you will easily find parking space on our street.
getting here is super easy : single bus ride and 7-17 mins walk will suffice!
Other Things to Note
stray cats frequent our doorstep. we sometime give them food and we let them out - we will expect you to also keep them out of the house!
from spring onwards little flying buzzers (mosquitoes) like to visit during night time but we have a mosquito net! water from the tub is considered drinkable in thessaloniki; we don't totally agree so we have mounted a filter on our kitchen tub. please remember to turn the switch accordingly when washing dishes - drinking. Furthermore, we can offer you hand made soap for washing your hands! We like to recycle plastic, metal and paper (mixed) : ))
there is a hairdryer if you need one!
we enjoy sleeping fairly early and will also enjoy staying up if we are having a good time. you are welcome to smoke outside..As well as leave your shoes outside! we can offer flipflops for your inhouse walking! We offer cable internet connection both in the living room and on the loft. we follow a no wireless policy and will not tolerate exceptions. Electromagnetic field pollution troubles us a lot and we promote health care by reducing mobile phone usage and eliminating wifi usage. you are welcome to use our land phone for both local calls as well as calling greek mobile numbers - unlimited and free of charge (no calls abroad though...) and if needed we can lend you one of our palm tops for wired internet access : )
we want the house to be clean at all times and hopefully you will also!
Kostas and his girlfriend were very nice and it was a pleasure to meet them, and there was another couple renting the room below the attic, so we had a full house for the weekend :) The room is just as it looks in the pictures, and the bed is comfy (soft mattress as he says in the listing, but perfect for me). Great option if you're looking for a cheap place in nice family neighborhood to explore the city. FYI - bus #16 gets you in the right neighborhood to save you some uphill walking and read the house rules prior -- no wifi! that made it difficult to plan the next leg of my trip, but plenty of cafes in town (10-15 minute walk) have free wifi.
Très bonne expérience dans un quartier calme et agréable au dessus de l'université et proche d'un théâtre en plein air. Kostas a vraiment été gentil avec nous, il est venu nous chercher alors que notre bus arrivait à 3h du matin. La petite chambre est très agréable avec une petite terrasse sous un figuier ! Etudiants et baroudeurs, nous vous conseillons cette chouette chambre.
Kostas is a kind and very helpful host. He prepare fruit to welcome us, provided us some useful websites, and showed us where to walk around in Thessaloniki.
The only thing that bothered us is the mosquitoes even there was a mosquito tent.
We're sorry that we left in a hurry and just left the key on the table because I didn't notice that the time in Greece is different from central Europe and we had to catch the bus. It's a pity that we couldn't say "thank you" and "good bye" in person.
Nice and cosy sleeping space in a very warm and welcoming home, would recommend for others.
Kostas is a great host and a very kind person. Staying at his place was like being at home. Of course, you have to respect the rules of the house (take off your shoes!). He helped me sort out some things during my stay and I'm really thankful about that too.
I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to visit Thessaloniki.
Kostas is a very nice person and received me very well. He is used to receive lots of travelers. The price is good, location is amazing and the house is very nice and clean.
