The apartment is on the 1st floor, and there is an elevator.
This is a 2 bedroom bright colourful flat in the centre of Athens. 1 double bed with real mattress, 2 single beds and a sofa bed in the living room for 2 people. Living Room with television, dvd player, Hifi, A/C. Bright kitchen with fridge, oven, dishwasher, microwave, coffee machine, full cutlery for 6 people. Bathroom with tub and shower, washing machine, hairdryer, iron and ironing board. Nice small balcony to relax or have dinner/breakfast.
The apartment is very colorful ! It was the residence of an artist previously hence the bright combination of colours. Also wifi internet access is provided

The neighbourhood

Quiet location very near the centre of Athens. Suitable for families, business trips, or simply exploring the city. Multi-national safe neighbourhood. Parking is difficult but there is a private parking just by the corner.
Close to Omonia Square, the centre of Athens (20 min walk), a beautiful big park "Pedion Areos" (10 min walk), National Archeological Museum (15 mins on foot) and Patission (or "28 octovriou") street, a street full of shops. Acropolis is just 4 tube stops away. Very close walk to cafes, restaurants and all basic shops: Super market, mini market, pharmacy, liquer shop, organic flea market every Saturday, drycleaners’, private clinic (just in case..) and a tourist office 5 minutes from the house at Kipseli squsre to help organize your other trips.

Buses 2 or 4, all take you to the centre of Athens either Omonia square or Syntagma square. Same buses also link with metro (Victoria station). That way you can reach Piraeus port or the airport. Finally from Syntagma you can catch the tram which goes to closest beach "Alimos" or "Voula"

Bear in mind that taxis in Athens are inexpensive, so it will cost around 5-6 euro to get to the centre!
Additionally, very close on foot you can find the suburban buses station. Within one-two hours you can reach other beaches outside Athens.

The amenities:
Fully equipped kitchen.
Hot water by turning on the switch 15 min before needed. We provide clean sheets & towels, some snacks, milk and juicewhen you arrive.
In the house you can find lots of greek maps, some English books and films/cds. We provide instructions on means of transport and local sightseeings as well as general info on Greek lifestyle. We too live in the center of Athens so can advise on both tourist attractions and genuine local hideouts and cafes, watering holes and tavernas/restaurants.

This cosy apartment is large enough to comfortably acommodate a group of 6 people.The area is quiet, residential and safe yet close to Athens historic centre. Tavernas, restaurants and cafes at walking distance.
Thank you for taking the time to look!

  • Nice apartment with everything we need. It is very clean and quiet at night. It is two blocks away from the bus stop, where we can take a bus to Viktoria metro station.
    Iosif was a very nice host. He helped us order pizza in the first night and companied my friend to the police office (because he lost his mobile phone on the metro, too bad). We had a great time in Athens. I recommend this apartment for others who want to visit the city and have a good rest at night.

  • The apartment was very spacious and we really enjoyed our stay there. There is a supermarket very close and we were able to buy fresh fruits and snacks for breakfast. Iosif met us in the afternoon and was very helpful with information about Athens. Thanks for a great stay!

  • Great people, great place ;) Everything was according with advertising. Apartment is near downtown, it is not a problem to go somewhere by bus. Apartament was great for me and my friends, specious, colorfull, cosy, perfect to take a rest, hot water, everything in the kitchen to prepare a meals, a great balcony, tv. computer with internet conection. There are not met personally hosts but always very happy to contribute, contacted by telephone and took over the fate of their tenants. Very positive memories of time spent there yet and I hope to go back someday!

  • We loved Athens! Apartment was nice. Host was friendly. Good value though a bit far from the metro, but not too far. Markets nearby, and a fabulous local (home cooked) restaurant nearby! Thanks Ioseph!!!! Host was very helpful and flexible with all guests as his flat was busy this time if year. We felt like locals staying in his flat! It was nice to sit in the Terrance. The shutters made the rooms nice and dark for sleeping! Wifi was a great bonus!

  • Loisif and Theano are really great hosts. They have a nice flat where it is agreable to stay for holidays especially with family. It is situed just at 15 minutes from the city center and near a square where we can eat and drink easily. Thanks a lot, it was perfect.

  • My friends and I spent 3 nights here in this apartment, and I have to say that it is very clean and spacious,at a very great price too! The host, Theano, speaks very good english and his son was adorable :)
    She explained to us about Athens and she explained well. If I come back to Athens, I will definitely stay here again.

  • Enjoyed our time here. Location good but somewhat further from pub transit than would have preferred. Good size rooms, bathroom a strange shape (and no shower curtain) and toilet loud, but workable. Hosts own an ice skating rink so we spent a fun afternoon there which we really appreciated. Lots of amenities and fast wifi. Nice people, would recommend apartment for those who like a non-touristy feel.

  • The apt. is comfortable, spacious, clean and well equipped (it even has a clothes washer & hair dryer). It's in an authentic Athens neighborhood with plenty of restaurants, food markets and cafes nearby.

    Iosif met us at the subway stop and took us to the apt. He brought fresh milk and juice, and showed us how things worked. He helped us retrieve our lost luggage, and was available to us when we had questions.

    The apt.'s kitchen is great, and is furnished with plentiful cookware and dishes. Had we wanted to we could even have made a cake!

    We highly recommend this apt. and Iosif couldn't have been a more accommodating and gracious host.

About
We are a couple living in Athens. I have a sports shop and Theano is a psychologist. Our latest member of the family, Giannis (now 2 years old) greets you too. We were born in Athens, love our city and would like to share our experience of living in it. Despite the crisis, most people go about their daily business. Athens is a diverse city: With more theatres and bookstores than London, excellent nightlife, plenty archaeological treasures, Athens is a challenging city that you have to discover. We on our side will do our best to guide you !
