The Space

A small studio apartment 25 sq m. located on the ground floor in the courtyard/garden. It is equipped with coffeemaker, toaster, fridge and kitchen as well as dinner table, plus a sink from a 1920's train! This studio has a double bed which can be converted to two single beds.

You can even barbecue in the garden if you wish!

The bathroom is crafted with traditional Greek workmanship using ecological materials. Enjoy the two antique Thonet chairs restored by the designer and owner of the apartment.
Apartment and windows face the courtyard which has a beautiful 60 year old olive tree and lemon tree!

It is located 15 minutes walk from Greek Parliament and the Acropolis, 400 m from the National Botanical Gardens and across from the pine forest of the Panathenaic (all-marble) Stadium.The Panathenaic Stadium is the place where the first modern Olympic Games of 1896 took place.

Trolleys and bus 1 minute away to get to Parliament and downtown. Metro stations Akropoli and Syntagma are a 15-20 minutes away and Evaggelismos station is about 20 minutes walk. Taxis are located 1 minute away.

One can enter the stadium from the back side to enjoy the green hill, a view of the Acropolis, a sunset or a morning jog/walk with other runners who train for the annual classical marathon.

The Stadio/Pangrati neighborhood offers nice local taverns with friendly service, fresh product markets (email hidden) market, cafes in 2 close-by squares. Bakeries, pharmacy, supermarket and finally, the best pizza in town--all within 2-5 walk! The sights are about a 10-15 min walk from our apartments and you pass the Temple of Zeus and Zappeion along the way. Kolonaki is about 15 minute walk, as well as several museums such as the Benaki, Byzantine and Cycladic and Museum of Modern Art.

It was designed and operated for several reasons:
- To provide people who visit Athens for a short or long period a home with privacy and quiet surroundings.
- The courtyard is for meetings or parties and for guests to invite their friends at home, not at a hotel room.
- The philosophy and concept is that visitors in Athens who stay for long or short term can enjoy the modern design, privacy and green surroundings, in the historical city center, minutes walk from the major Athens attractions.

Find your new true home away from home during your stay in Athens, either for 2 days or 10 months with peace of mind regarding linen cleaning, housekeeping and/or utilities such as internet, gas, water, etc.

  • Both Yannis and Fotini are very nice and helpful. They can also offer some small excursions such as to the Temple of Poseidon, if you would like to book them, just ask. The room I stayed in was a bit smaller than the pictures make it out to be, but the bathroom made up for the small bedroom/studio. There is a kitchen and garden/patio area that can be used and is actually the entrance to the apartments. I walked to the major sites from here, which took about 20 minutes depending on where I was heading to or from and progressively became shorter with each trip once it became more familiar.

  • Cheap and convenient flat that we stayed in for 2 days. A bit of a walk from the busy attractions, but not impossible. Hop on/hop off bus is rather convenient as a mode of commute. (See below)

    Using Public Transport to the flat:
    For those planning to use the hop on/hop off red bus, I suggest you buy your pass at Syntagma station (or any of the stops) after reaching Syntagma station. I believe it's the tour's stop 8 (the stadium) and get off there to walk (5 mins) to the flat. Stop 6 is nearby Syntagma station, so it will cut down the time. The hop on/hop off bus pass is good for 2 days, and much better value than the cab that the host advises. The fare provided by the host was inaccurate, as Athens is notorious for the questionable cab fares depending on your driver, and we paid 5x more.

  • Yannis and Fotini were excellent hosts! Both very friendly and hospitable. Upon checking in, they sat us down with a map of the city and suggested several of their favorite spots. Their neighborhood felt very authentic– in the heart of the city, but it didn't feel touristy. Tasty cafes, restaurants, and bakeries, all within a short walk!

    The studio itself was small, but very well designed (in both aesthetics and layout) so you never felt cramped. Also, the shared patio space was lovely and we used it often. If we visit Athens again, we're definitely staying here.

  • My son and I had a great stay with Yannis and Fotini. Yannis was so friendly and helpful. He offered to give us a tour along the coast before driving us back to the airport, which turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip! Great spot and a really great locations. I highly recommend it.

  • We were only in Athens for two nights, but Yannis & Fontini were very accommodating and helpful. The room was well-located, well-priced, clean, and beautiful with nice amenities and a wonderful courtyard. We would definitely pick this place again when going to Athens.

  • Stayed for three nights with my friend. Very comfortable beds and excellent location, just minutes from the Panathenaic stadium, about 10-15 minutes walk from Plaka, and in a (initially deceptive - don't be fooled by the graffiti) cute and safe hipster neighborhood with great coffee shops and good food. The room was tiny but super clean and the hot showers were amazing after a long day of walking around. Our only complaint was that our last night there the neighborhood cats spent the entire night making an inordinate racket and we didn't sleep so well, but that isn't in the host's control! All our interactions with Yannis were greatly , he is super responsive and was great about recommending places to eat and visit. Stay with him!

  • We were two friends staying in the room for two nights in February and loved it. Nicely and cleverly designed, it was a cosy, comfortable and clean room - with a nice garden in front, tea and coffee for us to enjoy. Yannis was very helpful, giving tips on local shops and willing to assist on anything we ask.
    The location is 10 minutes walk to Syntagma, away from the crowd and noise of the city. Best part of staying there, besides being peaceful, is walking through the national gardens, stadium and Hadrian's arch.
    We would definitely go back and stay there if we travel back to Athens.
    The only possible down side may be the size of the room for some - it is rather small. Yet, it was not a problem for us - after all we had a nice garden just in front to sit and enjoy the clean air.
    Thanks Yannis - we hope to be back.

  • A beautifully managed small hotel, check in experience were excellent and way beyond our expectation. the smaller room we booked was under re-decoration so we have to upgrade to the bigger one with antique easel TV stand, we love it! and everything else was perfect too.

  • We had a wonderful stay in an absolutely charming apartment... The apartment we should have had was under improvement works, so we have nicely been upgraded in a bigger one, very lovely. Great surprise!
    Yannis and Fotini welcomed us warmly, giving us a lot of details on the main touristic spots but also practical useful information about the surroundings.
    In other words: WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

  • Fotini was a great host. The apartment was beautiful and our hosts were incredibly helpful. I would definitely recommend staying with Yannis & Fotini if you have the chance! The location is great, the living area clean, and the hosts were wonderful.
