This colorful, spacious and clean apt is located at the area of Mets right at the center of Athens: 5' walk from Kallimarmaro Stadium (carried the first modern Olympic Games) 10' walk from Acropolis, and 15' walk from Plaka and all the main sites of Athens.Transportation is easy either by metro (Acropolis stop) or tram that can also take you to the closest beach (worth's the ride).
I personally walk or ride my bike. Since I am a traveler myself, I believe that this area is great because it actually belongs to a real and safe neighborhood though in the city center!
You can eat traditional food at the local taverna around the corner or visit my favorite pizza place down the block.There's a cute cafe and 2 mini markets you can do your shopping.The beautiful old buildings that surround the area of Mets are definitely a plus!
I have a big balcony with flowers where you can relax. This is my home so I live here unless I'm on a trip.I can give you tips about where to go and what to do depending on your taste.You must know I've been having guests all my life!
Private heating, unlimited hot water, linen,towels,hair dryer, toiletries, washing machine,dish washer,fast WIFI,TV,DVD player,fully equipped kitchen with espresso machine and pretty much what ever a comfortable apartment can offer is what you'll find! I can also lend you a mobile phone with a Greek sim card if you need one. You can use my land line for free phone calls but ONLY to domestic land lines.
I also suggest you check out my other listing and my calender! Before making a reservation please contact me first.When the booking is done my the directions will appear.Remember that full profiles with reviews or references always look better!

Interaction with Guests
I believe that communication is everything.I strongly encourage my guests to do the same!
I am usually around unless on a trip:) I am always on line though and pick up the phone when I have a guest! This means I can give you answers concerning my city and my home at all times.
I expect people to be respectful to the property. This is my own home and not something I'm just renting from someone so I'm the one who pays if something brakes;)
Cleaning after eating is appreciated. Having shoes on in a bedroom is something I don't usually do:) Smoking is allowed only in the balcony or very close to the fireplace!
I also made a house manual to make your stay easier! It's extremely important you read it.
Kalliopi reminds me of the name of a star In fact thats what she is , she's a star.
She made me a cup of that tastiest tea I have ever had and it was very welcome when I arrived.
Unfortunately I had a very bad cold which got worse as the days progressed which could not have been easy for her, but she was endlessly kind, patient and concerned.
She is a strong willed person and has not been one to let life pass her by. Her flat is wonderful and I could learn from her some ideas for my own place. She also has an excellent taste in British New Wave music which really surprised me. Great sense of humour.
First class person. First class accomodation. First class area. It has it all. She is always welcome in Scotland.
Kalliopi was such a wonderful host, she was so nice with us. We arrived very late and at this hour she explained us everything about Athens and the best places to go. Her place is beautiful and very near to all the important places ( believe me,very near) with a beautiful view of the Acropolis. The best option to stay in Athens :) Gracias Kalliopi !
If you are Athens lover, here is the best place to walk around ancient buildings and feel ambience of philosophy.
Here is located only 5min. from Acropolis station. You can see great view of Acropolis from the top of this building.
Kalliopi is really thoughtful friend, all amenity in the place is open. Free coffee, comfortable bed and artistic home was wonderful. Kalliopi also give to us many tips to spend good time in Athens.
I strongly recommend Kalliopi place to all the people who will visit Athens.
My host Kalliopi was amazing, she really made me feel very welcome, advised me about places to visit, things to see and do, places to eat, such as the local bakery, which became my local bakery!!: )
Kalliopi's home is very clean, comfortable, the balcony is nice and tranquil, the kitchen is well organised and her Nespresso coffee machine is a delight!
The location is very close to the Acropolis, less than 10mins walk, and its located in a safe area of town.
The location is near to transport such as the metro, trams, and buses, although taxi's are fairly reasonable in price.
I wholeheartedly recommend staying at Kalliopi home as you will be treated like a guest of honour, and be able to enjoy Athens without any stress!!: )
I (Sonja) stayed at Kalliopi’s place for 5 nights. Kalliopi is a perfect host and I really enjoyed staying at her place. I liked the flat’s style and the big balcony where you can enjoy the sun. It’s also very well situated (5 minutes to the metro station Akropolis; not far from the center and bars; there are taverns, shops etc. just along the next street). Kallipoi herself is veeery nice, friendly and helpful. With her as host everything was easy and uncomplicated – I really appreciate that! I can highly recommend her to everyone as host. Thank you so much Kalliopi - if you are in Austria sometime you are welcome at my boyfriend’s and my place as well :)! I wish you all the best!!
We loved staying with Kalliopi. Her apartment was really great and in the in the perfect place to explore Athens, very very close to the Acropolis but in a quiet residential area. She gave us great advice about fun and interesting places to go away from the obvious tourist areas. We would love to stay with her again if we went back to Athens.
Kalliopi is THE perfect host in Athens, she took time to explain more than the rules of the appartement : Athens lifestyle, the best place to eat etc. and she helped us to find a delivery at 1:00 am! Perfect! The place is as it is on the pictures: quiet, clean, practical, nice and warmful. Thanks a lot for everything, Kalliopi!
