The Space

It is a warm and petit penthouse loft apartment with a “cocoon-bed”, a warm living-room, a kitchenette (has everything you’ll need), a bathroom, and a terrace. It has a splendid view of the acropolis through all the apartment and terrace. Very quiet place (no neighbors to disturb), in front of a small square with trees, a small church and a small cafe. The internet access used to be with a usb wireless stick but not anymore. There is a fast and reliable wireless internet connection :)

Right in the heart of Athens (next to Ermou str. and Kapnikarea church).

Walking distance from the most famous galleries, restaurants and tavernas, bars, shops, royal garden, cultural centers, museums and much more...

100 meters from Plaka (the old historical neighborhood of Athens, clustered around the northern and eastern slopes of the Acropolis).

700 meters from Kolonaki (One of the capital's leading shopping areas).

4 min. walking to Metro stations Syntagma and Monastiraki (the apart is in the middle) and bus station.

Very easy access:
From airport: Metro blue line and Bus X95 to Syntagma square (website hidden)
From port Piraeus: Take the Metro green line to Monastiraki station (website hidden)

Basically you are located right in the center and walking distance from anything.

Note! On Saturdays gets a bit noisy from bars around so you might consider having earplugs with you for zero noise ;)

  • Antonis was a wonderful host! He was prompt and easily understandable, and he gave us much insight as we began our journey around the city. The apartment was just as advertised: a good-sized bathroom with a shower, a roomy living room, and a "cocoon" bedroom (which had a very comfortable, good sized bed), and there was plenty of storage for luggage and clothing. The apartment was also in a great location with one of the best views in all of Athens. It was a short walk to Syntagma Square and to Monastraki. Our stay was easy, efficient, and equal parts enjoyable, with a host that made everything all the better. All in all, it was the best experience at a laughably good price. I will stay here every time I'm in Athens. Thanks Antonis!

  • I was traveling with my 18-year old daughter who didn't want to leave! Loved this apartment with it's very convenient location, large balcony with a 300 degrees view of the city (including the acropolis), spacious interior, high-speed wi-fi. It felt like home. The amenities are basic and the "cupboard" bed is unusual, but we were OK with it. Noisy on the weekends as surrounded by late-night bars, but manageable. Would highly recommend it to budget travelers! You can't get better for the price! And if you are not fuzzy, you won't regret staying here!

  • Great Location in the heart of Athens. All the must have amenities needed for staying there. Antonis was helpful and patient with our arrival. The view is as promised, amazing from the patio of Acropolis. Would recommend staying here, and we would stay again. Read the reviews, there is a bar below the apartment, which we enjoyed, but yes there will be some noise associated with that. Don't complain, you were forewarned if you did your research!

  • Great location close to Plaka and all ' the sights' . Antonis very helpful with information on supermarket , train stations and local restaurants.
    'Interesting ' bed but comfy.
    We needed to buy some cereal bowls and perhaps another coffee mug would be helpful ,and one outdoor chair very wobbly.

  • Antonis Lourantos est un hôte très accueillant et prêt à nous aider pour notre séjour. Il a été très clair pour nous expliquer le fonctionnement des équipements de l'appartement. Celui-ci est situé dans un quartier idéal pour visiter Athènes : très central et près d'une rue piétonne commerçante ; tout est accessible à pied. Evidemment le point fort est la vue sur l'acropole depuis la grande terrasse où nous pouvons prendre le petit déjeuner avec le lever du soleil sur le Parthénon et l'apéritif avec le coucher du soleil. Nous avons fait un séjour très agréable et recommandons cet appartement.

  • The apartment is how it appears in the photos. The location is excellent. There were some (website hidden) facilities consist only of an electric one plus burner HOB. The kitchen facilities were lacking in several areas and there was no light. There were several safety issues - We cannot recommended the apartment for children. The "bedroom" consists only of a bed - there is little space for anything else. The apartment in general had a neglected look but was functional. All of this is made up for by the fantastic view, and the friendly and very helpful host.

  • Antonis is a charming and helpful guy. Unfortunately we did not stay in the apartment as planned because when we arrived with Antonis we found that it had been broken into over the Easter weekend. We were so sorry this happened to him. He is a very gracious host and gave us a cash refund. The apartment would have been perfect for us.

Traveling is my passion, and this little penthouse loft is my nest the rest of the time. I found this home after long researches, so that i could have a place that would offer me this amazing acropolis view, while having such a peaceful residence combined with living in the heart of Athens. Looking forward to meet you, host you and show you around...
