Interaction with Guests
I always keep in touch with my guests from day one.I am available to answer all their questions and make thei arrival to Thessaloniki an easy one. However, since I do not live in Thessaloniki, occasionally I amay not be available to welcome them personally but there is a good friend who will certainly make your welcome the warmest ever.
The neighborhood is very lively; there are many shops , super markets , bakeries, meat and fish also fruit and vegetable markets. There are many restaurants-some have daily cooked dishes,others just fish and meat and many snack bars and coffee shops. The best outdoor cafe is the one situated 2 blocks down where one can enjoy coffee by admiring the view of the ancient agora. There are many archaeological sites nearby; one is the ancient agora, then next to the apt building is Alatza Imaret and the old town is just a walk uphill.
