The Space

A cosy, quiet apartment by the center of Athens. Beautiful view to a green hill, you can hear only birds singing. 2 minutes walking distance to the bus and metro station and 3 stops later you find yourself to Acropolis, another stop and you arrive to Syntagma square,in the center of Athens. You can even walk to Acropolis, it is about 10-15 minutes away. In less than 10 minutes walking distance, there is also a tram station if you want to visit the beach. It is really easy to access the airport and the port of Piraeus.

Fully equipped, this cheerful, coloured appartment is ideal for 2 persons but it can accomodate up to 4. It has one bedroom, a living-room in which a sofa turns into double bed, a dining-room, a kitchen and a bathroom. Brand new mattresse, A/C, tv and dvd player in both bedroom and living-room.

There is a variety of books in many languages, maps, hot water independency, cooking facilities, toaster, coffee-maker, refrigerator, oven, linen & towels, hair dryer, iron and ironing board.

In the area, in walking distance, there are a grocery market, super markets, restaurants, coffee shops, even a spa center. Manicure, pedicure, hairdresser in the house after request.

I will be very happy to give you information about my city in general. I am sure you will enjoy your stay and hope that you will feel so comfortable, that you will feel you are at "home, sweet home" :)

* As an animal lover and a stray animals volunteer, there is also a donation box in the appartment. Unfortunately, there are many strays in our city, in our country and any help is precious. Thank you

Interaction with Guests

It's up to you! My first priority is to be always available for my guests through mail, text or call. It will be my pleasure to give you information and tips about my city and for short excursions near Athens. Upon request, there is the possibility to have a taxi driver waiting for you at the airport, to take you back at the airport/port, or to organise short, private tours in the city. If you are interested in something of the above, please let me know to arrange it and inform you of the choices and charges.

Is there anything special that you celebrate during your stay? Birthday, anniversary or something else? Please let me know about any special occasions.

If you are going to visit an island or another area of Greece before or after your stay in my apartment, let me know about the place, it will be my pleasure to give you tips and recommendations.

I am not only here to host you but to help you organise the best holidays ever!

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood is friendly and safe. I love this small green hill, right in front of the apartment, it is so quiet and green.
It is really convenient that the metro, bus and tram stations are in walking distance. And many times, I love walking until Acropolis and Syntagma square, it is not so far away!
There is almost everything you night need in walking distance, really close to the house, such as:
super market (which is open daily, even on weekends until late at night),
open air vegetables, fruit and fish market every Monday,
coffee shops and restaurants in the square of Aghios Ioannis, where the metro station is.
My neighbours are really friendly, you could even knock their door in case you need something!

Getting around

Aghios Ioannis metro station in only 2 minutes walking away. Neos Kosmos tram station is in walking distance too.
From the airport you can take the bus, line X95. You will arrive at Syndagma Square and there, you will take the metro, the line to Aghios Dimitrios or Hellinikon and the metro station by the house is Aghios Ioannis metro station.
-or take directly the metro from the airport and change line in Syndagma square as above.

As soon as you arrive at Aghios Ioannis station, take the road on your left, it is Kasomouli street. After less than 60 meters (there are traffic lights), take the road on your left again. This is Barmpanou street, where the apartment is located.

  • Nice and cozy apartment! It's on 7th floor but there's a lifter. Air-conditioned. I stayed in it for two nights with two of my friends. Salta wasn't there but her friend welcomed us. There were maps in the drawer and a folder of personal advises from Salta, really useful! Recommended.

  • Katerina's place was suitable for me and my friends. Everything was as shown and described in the profile. The situation is excellent and there are nice restaurants and cafés just few minutes from the flat.

  • I had a great time staying at Katerina's place. She was so helpful giving me a lot of advice regarding our trip. She is not just here to give you a place to stay but she wants you to have a good time in Greece. The apartment is just like the photos. You have everything you need. Check in was easy. Her friend greeted us at the apartment. She was readily available anytime we have a question. We felt we were taken care of by her very well.

    We felt safe in the neighborhood and it's only 2 mins from a metro station. You also could walk to Acropolis; 20-30mins.

    I highly recommend Katerina and her apartment. I hope you have a great time in Athens too!

  • I had a wonderful stay in Katerina's apartment. Even though we arrived earlier than expected, she was very understanding and accommodating. She even went out of her way to help us book an early morning taxi to the airport for our departure, which I very much appreciate because I do not speak the local language, and she offered plenty of advice and suggestions during our stay in Athens. The apartment itself was exactly as pictured; no surprises. It was a cute little place and I loved the balcony overlooking a small wooded area. The only complaint I have was that there was no shower curtain/barrier, so half the bathroom would be soaked after we showered. Not sure if this is a normal thing there but I was not used to it and it is something to be aware of.

  • It is a nice apartment, with sunny rooms, in a good location, near to the Metro station.
    The owner of the apartment, Mrs. Katerina Salta, is a kind and friendly person, who is always ready to answer your questions and help you if necessary.
    I enjoyed my stay in this apartment.

  • Staying in Katerina's home was my first AIRBNB experience, and it couldn't be better. If it is possible, her flat is even more beautiful when I saw it there. She was great host, answering all my questions and solving problems in no time. Even she showed me some most beautiful coastal parts of Athens :)
    I highly recommend her as she is great person and wonderful host, and hopefully this won't be my last time to stay there!

  • Katerinana wasaantstic host. She not onnly met me at the airport but she went out of her wa to help me to settle in the flat and in Athens. She became a friend. The flat was very comfortable and the balcony especially, was lovely for sitting out on. It is big enough for two people very comfortably and all facilities are there. It is very close to the Metro station which lunks uo witht the Tram and to get to Acropolis Metro it only takeds ten minutes so it was very easy. I would recommend anyone wanting a comfortable, convenient flat to contact Katerina.

  • Just spent 3 weeks in this apartment and had a wonderful time.
    The kitchen and bathroom are adequate and some upgrades have been done such as new paint, refinished parquet floors and new patio doors and windows. It is very clean. The area is blue collar
    but very convenient with the Metro right around the corner and the tram a 10 minute stroll away. I love the sun and every day the sun filled all the rooms so I had my breakfast and morning coffee on the long balcony facing the trees and enjoying the animal sounds.
    In the late afternoon the sun was off the balcony so a person can enjoy the cooler air. The suite is quiet with friendly neighbors.
    There is a great little convenience store just around the corner with friendly service, very reasonably priced fresh veggies and fruit, goat yogurt and milk and most things you might need.
    The best part was Katerina the host who went beyond the call of duty in recommending great places to visit and eat and general information and tips about Greece. I love Greece and this place was perfect for me and I recommend it.
