Apartment is on the 3rd floor with a spectacular view of the Acropolis.
It is a one bedroom apartment, with a fully equipped kitchen, lounge room and bathroom. A double bed is available in the bedroom and a sofa bed that can sleep another two guests at the same time. Perfect for a couple, a group of friends or a family. The building also has an elevator.
Thus, it sleeps 4 adults comfortably. The balcony has a great view to the Acropolis, you can have your afternoon coffee or your breakfast there. It is a 3 minute walk from the Athens shopping district and the Plaka - Monastiraki area. It is a 5 minute walk to both Monastiraki Metro station and Thission Train Station.
The area is well know for sightseeing and its night life. There you can have your lunch or dinner in the traditional taverns and have your ouzo with good company and atmosphere.
Also this area is known for its night life, just a 3 minute walk away. Perfect for whoever is looking to enjoy the city of Athens.
The apartment is also, only a 10 minute walk from The Parthenon (ACROPOLIS), should you feel like a visit :)
I am a friendly host from Australia - living in Greece, and would like to help make your stay in Athens more pleasant, also, you should feel free to ask if you have any questions.
I actually met her mom and not her but they were both pleasant nonetheless. The place is very small and would fit no more than 4 people approximate but very close to everything and is well suited. The neighborhood is a bit run down but we did not mind at all. Very nice people everywhere we went and bonus everyone basically speaks English!!! :) Will stay again if we go back. Thanks!
We really enjoyed staying in the flat and Des' mum was very helpful upon arrival. The flat is basic but comfortable and clean, and centrally located so it makes a great base to explore the city. We walked almost everywhere.
It also has an amazing view from the balcony and rooftop- do make sure to go upon onto the roof!
The area is full of nice restaurants within a 5 min distance and we especially enjoyed a place called Nikitas that is a few streets up from the flat.
We would definitely highly recommend this flat for people who want to see Athens on a budget- we loved it! Thanks very much to Des and her mum.
L'appartement, idéalement placé au coeur d'un quartier animé et chaleureux, est situé à deux pas des sites historiques et du coeur même de la ville. Très propre, très bien agencé, je le recommande vivement. Des et sa maman sont des hôtes adorables!!
Great location, we walked everywhere and there is a Red Bus Athens Tour stop right outside the apartment. Great view of the Acropolis. The house itself is simple but just what you need for travelling, good kitchen, good hot water, extra small bed in loungeroom and plenty of extra sheets and blankets etc. Didn't meet Des but she's been wonderful via email and her mother waited for us at the apartment and was very helpful checking us in. She was lovely. We enjoyed staying here.
We enjoyed every minute staying in the apartment. Des was very kind, offering to wait for us at the train station. Des' mom waited at the apartment to show us around and provided useful info about the neighborhood. Hospitable host, convenient and central location, 1 metro line from Athens airport. Thank you Des and Georgina.
We had a great stay at Des' apartment. We took the mass transit from the airport and the metro station was only a few blocks from the apartment. The view is incredible - we used the lit up Acropolis as a night light! The kitchen was well equipped and we had plenty of towels in the bathroom. We loved the location - close to great shopping, the Central Market, and the sights.
Des' apartment was very central to the bustle of Athens: flea market was around the corner, as well as side streets filled with relaxing cafes. Our group of three slept comfortably and enjoyed being able to see the Acropolis from the balcony, living and bedroom area. Thanks for hosting!
Despite the unattractiveness of the surrounding area, the apartment is in a good position for exploring Athens and it's attractions. You can walk to all the important places as well as great shops and restaurants.
Des's mum welcomed us and was very helpful in providing us with lots of local information.
Tha apartment is quite dated but provided us with everything we needed for a great visit. Loved the night time view of tha Acropolis.
We had a great time staying at Des’s apartment in Athens. It is obvious from the photos that the view is magnificent and we appreciated it every day and night.
The neighborhood is perfect as a central point from which to visit everything we wanted to see. Walking to the Acropolis was great, but we also appreciated that one of the stops for the Red Bus Tour was right across the street from our front door. This made it easy to get to all the sights and we even took this bus to the port and went swimming in the Sea.
We loved all the restaurants and cafes close by, the music and the shops. We had a great time!
Vue magnifique sur l'Acropole. Petit balcon agréable. Appartement fonctionnel situé à la limite du marché aux puces et des restaurants de Monastriaki. Restaurant ''Take-out'' en face.
