About This Listing
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.

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's guest room was a great place to call home for my quick stopover in Athens. The room and apartment were exactly as described here on the listing, and it was especially nice to have a little bit of privacy / not feel like an intrusion with the guest room being downstairs from the main apartment.
The neighborhood around the flat is great as well! Fantastic bakery around the corner to pick up snacks for the day on the way to the sites.
Finally, Kalliopi was a wonderful host--very communicative before and during the stay and she offered some great tips around the neighborhood. I would look forward to visiting again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this room to other travelers.
Prima kamer in een leuke, rustige wijk op 5 minuten lopen van de Acropolis.
Kalliopi heeft alles goed georganiseerd en is heel behulpzaam en hartelijk.
Awesome stay at Kalliopi's place! I arrived a bit late, and even though Kalliopi had a flight to catch, she took the time to show me everything in the apartment, ask about my plans, recommend some cool places, and get to know me a little- I wish our schedules had lined up better because she seems like a blast to just hang out with.
Very clean and bright apartment; everything you could need (she even lent me a local cellphone), and about 10 minutes' walk from the Acropolis (if you walk quickly like me!). Kalliopi will give you tons of resources, advice, and probably awesome company. She was/is interested in helping with my trip and cared that I was having a good time in Athens. Definitely recommend!
Kalliopi is a friendly and welcoming host, showing us the beauty of Athens, sharing her travel experience, and resting our worry. The place is very clean, comfortable and safe. It is close to shops, restaurants and main attractions. Athens is definitely a place impressing me so much, and the passion of host as well.
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.
