Dear friends I am proud to offer you my luxurious apartment for rental.
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. The renovation, I talked about, included new double glass windows, which they provide total soundproofing. When the windows are closed you cannot believe you stay over the most crowded road of the city.
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 !!!

Please bring your passport with you as we need a copy for security reasons.
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 :-)
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.
First of all it's the location which makes this apartment 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.
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.
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.
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 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.

Great location and gorgeous room. There was an amazing bakery down the street (Meliartos) and lots of other good places to shop. It was really nice to be able to stop by the apartment in the middle of the day when it got too hot, the A/C works great and at night it wasn't too noisy. Highly recommended!
My husband and I stayed at Francis' home in Athens on the last day of our vacation - the location is perfect, it's right in the center and walking distance from major historical spots in Athens (15-20 mins walking distance from the Acropolis and 10 minute walk from syntagma square). It's also flanked by great shops, bars and restaurants and other amenities. Specifically speaking about the apartment, it is modern, comfortable and built as a large studio. It was kept very clean and professionally maintained - they make you feel as though you are in a hotel with all the basic amenities - towels, tea kettle,
Toaster, coffee machine, washer/dryer, fridge, AC etc. The bathroom is on the smaller side but has a nice shower area. The apartment building has an elevator so there's no problem taking luggage upstairs to his apartment. There's no doorman/concierge in the building and I'm not even sure if that's common in Athens (as is the case for New York City for instance). In terms of safety, we felt perfectly safe given the neighborhood. Overall, I'd recommend this option to anyone looking to spend some time in Athens and isn't too bothered by the lack of a fancy concierge/hotel style living. You might find the spacious apartment a good breather! We were glad to have that much space after all the cramped hotels we'd been in around Europe.
Again, I'll repeat, Francis runs this very professionally with his colleagues - ensuring that you have someone to check you in, guide you through the apartment. They've also provided useful recommendations for cans, places to visit etc - a great experience overall!
Property was located near all main areas and transportation routes. Very nice apartment and bigger than looks in pictures. All amenities included as well
It's amazing. Good location, if you want to go shopping it's a good choice. And there are many local restaurants around Francis' apartment.
John was very helpful and they have an awesome spa in the city. We loved the apartment! We would definitely be back!
Francis was a great host. My girlfriend and I are really pleased with the experience over all. The communications with him where always open and he answered all of our questions very quickly. The apartment looked great and the location is perfect. Everything is so close by that we never had to take the metro nor the bus. There was an information package on the table when we walked in and is full of recommendations which we found very helpful. We would totally come back there and recommend this place to anyone.
JC and Adriana
Wonderful stay in Athens! Christina arranged our ride from the airport and greeted us upon arrival. The flat is in walking distance of everything we wanted to do and very comfortable. Highly recommended!

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.
