The Space

A really cute 50sq.m. apartment, recently renovated (July 2012) in the centre of Athens, in Kallimarmaro/Pangrati, in one of the nicest areas of the city centre, it's like a suburb downtown!
Very close to Panathinaiko Stadium (Kallimarmaro), one should definitely visit, and just 10 minutes walk to Syntagma square from where you are a breath away from Emou str, Monastiraki (greek bazaar), Kolonaki (shopping area), Kerameikos/Gazi (nighlife area) Thiseio and Akropolis, the most interestig places and attractions of our city!
The apartment meets all the needs of today's life, fully renovated, with A/C and wifi, lightly and beautifully decorated, painted in white, "coloured" in a relaxed way by the furniture, most of which are inspired by the 60's and 70's deco style.
In the daytime you can also walk to Syntagma through the National Garden, that is you can get to the centre whlie having a beautiful walk in a quiet and beautiful park full of trees!
In the area of Kallimarmaro you can also find great places to eat (taverns or restaurants), or just have a drink.
I'm realy looking forward to hosting you and letting you discover the beauty of the area and the cosines of the apartment!

  • Perikles has been a wonderful host, his apartment is beautiful, clean and very well located. It was very easy to communicate with him and he even gave us a quick touristic introduction, which was very useful during our stay in Athens. We highly recommend him as a host.

  • Periklis was very hospitable before we even arrived! He gave us great directions and met us at the apartment upon our arrival. The apartment had good wifi, was clean and the water was hot. We even washed our clothes! The apartment is convenient to the historic stadium and many restaurants , shops, the national garden and accessible to the tour we joined in syntagma. Periklis was helpful while we stayed when we asked him for a reference to a hospital for my son who was sick. Without hesitation , I would stay here again and recommend the apartment and Periklis to anyone who asks!! Thank you Periklis :)

  • Great apartment, and convenient location - very close to the places that you want to be. We had no problems walking to/from the main tourist attractions/city centre. The apartment is clean and comfortable. Periklis was also very helpful in giving suggestions and friendly. I would definitely stay here again!

  • My husband and I had a great two-night stay at this clean, stylish, and conveniently-located second floor apartment with a balcony overlooking the "street" which really consists of stairs/a pedestrian walkway (it's nice that the place is not situated on an actual road with cars). Periklis was very responsive to my questions leading up to our stay, and was patient, helpful, and accommodating of our late night arrival. His place is literally steps from the Olympic Stadium which is pretty cool, and an easy 10-15 min walk to both the Acropolis metro station (where we met our bike tour guide) and Syntagma metro station (where we caught the metro to the Larissis train station to head back to Thessaloniki). I went for a run one evening and felt safe in his neighborhood. There's a cute cafe at the bottom of the stairs leading up to his apartment building, but we didn't have time to try it. Periklis left guidebooks (regular size and pocket size, we borrowed the latter while out and about) and a pocket size language book, as well as a list of things to do. We found plugs in the bowl on his kitchen table that we used to charge our iPhones (I had left my US to EU converter in an airport along the way). The second night of our stay, which was a Thursday, there was loud music or karaoke going on somewhere nearby. Fortunately, it didn't last too long and ended by around midnight. We would definitely stay here again if we ever return to Athens, and we would also return to the restaurant Manh Manh (approx. 15-20 min walk away near the Acropolis metro) which we highly recommend!

  • 10/10!!!! Everything that you have read about Periklis and his apartment is absolutely true. Periklis is a great host, amazing communication and even waited until 23:00 for our late arrival into Athens :)

    His apartment is super cool and modern. It has all the luxury amenities that you need - Flat screen, fast wifi, nice shower and a/c.

    There really is no other place to stay in Athens.

    Thank you Periklis for accommodating us!!!!

  • Such a great place right near all the action in Athens. Our friends recommended Periklis's place after they stayed here last year. We loved staying here. It was very comfortable and decorated very cool. We were able to walk to all major tourist attractions from this apartment. Periklis was very friendly and communicated promptly. Definitely stay here if in Athens!
