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 !!!

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.

The house was spacious,clean and well equipped. It is at the central of athens.I would strongly recommend this apartment.
The apartment was in the perfect location in Athens. If you want to be in the centre of the city then this is the ideal place. The apartment is larger then what we expected, presented elegantly and I would recommend for people to stay there and enjoy Athens.
We arrived in Athens on an early flight before check-in but Francis made us feel welcome and allowed us to store our bags at his nearby business while we explored the city. He then personally walked us to the loft and answered any questions we had. The loft was very nice and just as pictured. It was in a great location near it all but still quiet. We could walk to several restaurants, shops or historical sites within 5-15 minutes. It was also great to have a washing machine to clean some of our clothes during our stay. Overall, I would recommend this place to anyone looking to visit Athens, with a nice clean and affordable place near many of the sites.
It is perfect!!!
The appartment is big, the decoration is beautiful! Everything was comfortable and working. There is a book the host keeps where all the guests leave recommendations of Athens, it's very useful if you're going to stay a couple of days. The appartment is located near several clothes stores if you like shopping, and was near a lovely plaza with really good restaurants. Thank you Francis, looking forward to come back!
Great apartment in the perfect location. The room is soundproof and the bed is very comfortable. A great stay, would highly recommend this flat.
We had a wonderful time at Francis' loft! It was exactly as described with an amazing proximity to everything we wanted to see and do. Francis was extremely helpful and accommodating. We had some difficulties with our ferry coming in from Mykonos and it was no problem for Francis; he was there waiting for us even at 10:00 p.m. when we arrived. He also assisted us with booking transfers, which we found very valuable. Francis had plenty of maps available in the loft and had excellent recommendations of places to eat in the area. We loved our visit to Athens and hope to come back again!

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