The Space

Dear friends I am proud to offer you my luxurious apartment for rental.

First of all it's the location which makes it unbeatable. It's located exactly in the city center, on the most famous pedestrian road of Athens (Ermou str) which starts from the Greek Parliament and the square of the constitution and ends at the Monastiraki square where the heart of old Athens beats. This area is for sure the best place to stay when visiting the city for many reasons.

Transportation is a main reason. The area is very well serviced by many metro stations, bus and tram. There are at least 3 metro stations near the apartment including the central metro station of the city, where the airport train arrives and the bus from the airport as well. There is also the one and only tram line of the city departing close by, which it can transports you to the south suburbs of Athens, where the best beaches are.

What I like the most of this area is the fact that it is always alive, full of things to do, on a walking distance. Whatever you might need is on your feet. All the best brands of the big chain shops are down below your window. Acropolis is a 5-10 mins walk. Plaka, the small village under the Acropolis, is practically your neighborhood, right across the corner. Movies, theaters, Acropolis museum, the best restaurants of the city, all are around.

Lately this area became the place to be, for its nightlife as well. The hippiest bars and tavernas of the city are located here. This is the place, us Greeks, we go out the most, during the nights as well.

Another plus of staying here is security. Being so close to the Parliament and the central square of the city means that Police is always around.

The truth is, that there are no new apartments in this area as it is the preserved old historical center. Nearby there are the great big luxury hotels of Athens, like Great Bretagne Hotel and King George Hotel, but as you can imagine they offer this privilege, staying at this very central location, at a high price.

When it comes to my apartment, I want to mention that it is one of the few apartments of the area that it was totally renovated from the beginning, on 2011. Being a civil engineer myself, I changed everything, I only kept the exterior walls, and I provided a first class renovation as this was going to be my residence. So you can expect all materials new inside, although the building from the outside is old. There is an elevator, renovated as well, in the lobby leading you on the second floor, where at the moment nobody else is living, so you have the whole floor for yourself. The renovation I talked about, included new double glazιers windows, which they provide total soundproofing. When the windows are closed you cannot believe you stay over the most crowded road of the city. All electronic equipment is new, providing you with a lot of small luxuries like the coffee machine, the 32΄ PLASMA TV, the great PIONEER sound system with the IPHONE docking station, the DVD PLAYER, the new CLOTHES' WASHING MACHINE. There is even a DISH WASHING MACHINE for your comfort. FREE WIFI is obviously provided, I know you cannot live without it :-)
The temperature of the apartment is well adjusted with autonomous heating system , you can adjust electronically your ideal temperature for the winter and use the A/C unit for the summer. Warm water is always provided within the same system. The place provides accommodation for 4 persons, there is a king size bed for 2 and a sofa which becomes a double bed for the rest. There is everything you might need inside the apartment, bed linen , plates , cooking equipment, towels, everything .....
All of them are of good quality and new.

I believe you will enjoy my beloved city and staying at my place will contribute on this. So don't miss this rare opportunity to stay in one of the few luxurious lofts of this unbeatable location providing you all those comforts in such a low price !!!


Last but not least : Athens Fish Spa offer : 10% DISCOUNT in any treatment and free trial fish pedicure to all my guests. If you don't know what the fish spa is about, please visit our page at (email hidden)/thefishspa or www,athensfishspa,com. I promise it's great fun. You will love it.

Please note that an one time cleaning fee of 20 Euros will be collected in cash during the check in and please bring your passport with you as we need a copy for security reasons.
Please also note that a check in after 11 pm is charged 20 Euros.

Thanks for reading about my listing and I am looking forward to meeting you personally and share with you information about my city.

Happy Travels :-)

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Great place in the middle of Plaka. Every place is walkable..and we did walk. There are lots of cool restaurants and bars in the neighborhood.

    The apartment is in a great building...elevator helps in moving the luggage. Security is good. The thing I loved was the high ceilings...makes it look really spacious. The windows are double glazed, so no noise from Ermou.

    There were 3 of us at the apartment...wife, 4 yr old kid and me...and we never felt cramped. Although the bathroom is on the smaller side.

    Fotis and team were helpful with all out queries. I recommend this place to any one looking for a central location in Athens.

  • Stop looking and book this apartment for your stay in Athens. I have been to Athens over 15 times and this is by far the BEST location, nicest accommodations, and excellent service by Fotis. This is how Airbnb was meant to be envisioned.
    We booked our taxi ride recommended by Fotis, we were so happy to get Andonis as our driver. Ask for him when you book thru Maria. A+ service.
    The property was well maintained and surprising to is was how tall the ceilings were. Pictures to not due 20'+ justice. Great apartment.

    Thank you Alexi ! Happy travels :-)

  • The apartment was wonderful. It's located in the middle of city center. We met Fotis at his business. He was very helpful and answered all of our questions. The apartment was very clean and had a good air conditioner.

    June 2014
  • Communicating with Fotis was easy; he responded quickly. Location is perfect - walkable to the Parthenon with lots of places to shop and eat around the area. The apartment was also clean and spacious.

    June 2014
  • We had a wonderful stay at Fotis's apartment. It is centrally located in the busy Plaka district, close to Syntagma Station and within easy walking distance to the historical Acropolis. The apartment is large and beautifully presented. It has everything that you need for a short or long stay in Athens. We were met by John who showed us how everything worked and gave guidance on where to eat etc. Couldn't have been easier.
    We have already recommended it to friends and some fellow travellers we have met on our journey.

  • Fotis' apartment was amazing!!! A great way to finish our Greece adventure. The transport that we arranged with his help was there to pick us up even though we were delayed by about 75 minutes.

    We were dropped off at Fotis' spa around the corner from the apartment. He then took us to the loft and showed us the amenities and what we could do around town.

    We never needed a car other then airport transfers and we walked everywhere. We were only there for 2 short nights and saw some of the touristy sites.

    There is plenty of food and shopping to be enjoyed around the area.

    On our last night we went to the Spa as our feet needed some love and care. We spent close to 2 hours there enjoying various treatments and highly recommend trying the 60 minute foot massages.

    If you want to be in the middle off the hustle and bustle of Plaka, Fotis' loft is the place to stay.

  • The apartment is very centrally located. Fotis is a gracious host.

    Response from Fotis:

    Thanks for the review Happy travels !

    June 2014
  • We were met by Fotis's colleagues at the Fish Spa nearby who were all really helpful. One of them showed us to the apartment and gave us a great place to go to eat, and the apartment is opposite an excellent cocktail bar called Dot - don't neglect it! The apartment is great, pristinely clean, spacious and bigger than it looks. Fotis left breakfast in the fridge which was great as well as tea and coffee. Windows were double double glazed too so it was really quiet despite being in a brilliant central location and close to the Acropolis. Definitely a great option for a city stay in Athens - I'd highly recommend it.

  • Fotis and John are excellent host! They met us right on time at the apartment to check us in. We were provided with clear instructions on how everything in the apartment worked, information on the city of Athens, and they even had ready breakfast items for us. The apartment could not have been better. It was very clean, modern and spacious. The location was ideal within walking distance to many Athen attractions and the coolest neighborhoods. We also visited Fotis Fish Spa where he offered us a complimentary fish pedicure. We highly recommend this apartment to others and hope to be back again!

Hey guys and many thanks for visiting my profile. I was born in Athens and I really love this amazing city.

Having travelled a lot as well, I find that the interaction with the locals always give you the right tips and makes the difference in the discovery of a new place. I am looking forward to meeting you personally and share with you the secrets of my city.
