The Space

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 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 is 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 other land lines.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Great flat: just 5 minutes walk from metro Akropolis but amazingly quiet (birds singing in the morning)!
    Exactly what you see on the pictures!
    Amazing terrace with plenty of flowers and nice green plants AND a view on the Akropolis
    Most important to me: 100% TOP CLEAN, safe and confortable. As a lady traveling alone, i adore it ( and wish my home would be designed in such a delightfull way). Definitly excellent value for money!

    But most of all, on top of those "materials" détails, you will have the opportunity to meet Kalliopi, a great hostess which offered me what i was really expecting from this kind of site: the chance to meet real, local people who trully enjoy meeting new visitors and not only doing that for monney, who love their city and r willing to share it with you in a friendly yet respectfull atmosphere.
    A great thank you to Kalliopi for this short yet great stay in her flat.

  • For me, having lived in Athens, the location of Kalliopi's place is ideal ~ situated in a quiet, secluded, 'real' neighborhood quite literally a 10-15 minute walk from a multitude of centrally-located neighborhoods of interest in various directions, including the Acropolis and many tourist attractions.

    Kalliopi is a conscientious, open-minded, generous and reliable host, and the apartment spotless.

    I would highly recommend the apartment itself, the location of it and Kalliopi as a host to respectful people visiting Athens, and would easily stay with her myself again.

  • I had a great time there! The flat is greatly located in central Athens, just a short walk from Acropolis area, very convenient if you're staying for a short trip. It is very nice and clean. Besides, Kalliopi was a perfect host, all her advises were very helpful. Highly recommended!

  • Kalliopi's flat is in a very good location and very good value - the terrace is lovely although we spent most of the day out. Kalliopi is very relaxed and doesn't intrude in any way - you can come and go as you wish. You get what you see in the photos and it's all good.

  • We had a wonderful time with Kalliopi and really enjoyed our stay in Athens. The apartment is centrally located and within walking distance of all the major sites including the Acropolis and Temple of Zeus. The verandah gives you a great view of the city and is a peaceful place to relax after a day of exploring. It is very trendy, clean, and comfortable. The metro is nearby for easy access to the rest of the city, and there is a supermarket and taverna just down the street. We would highly recommend staying here. Thank you, Kalliopi for sharing your home!

  • We can only wholeheartedly agree with the other positive reviews about the apartment. It has a great location, plenty of space, clean, nicely decorated and a fantastic balcony. But for us, the best aspect of our stay was getting to know Kalliopi, she is a great person, very intelligent and passionate. We learned a lot about what the Greek people are going through and it was a great experience to have met her. We wish her all the best and recommend you stay with her in Athens.

  • Staying at Kalliopi's apartment was a wonderful experience! She lent me a helpful Athens guidebook and map and gave me great suggestions for things to do. Her apartment has a superb location, was perfectly clean, and has a sleek modern design. Kalliopi is a great host--I totally recommend staying at her guest room!

  • This is a beautiful apartment,close to all the great sites in Athens, but in a quiet residential area. I only met Kalliopi briefly, but she was lovely and very welcoming. I felt very safe here, and would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to anyone.

  • Kalliopi's flat is lovely, and she is an amazing host who really goes above and beyond to make you feel welcome and comfortable. Such a great location, within a short walk of the Acropolis, with a beautiful terrace, and very comfy bed. Kalliopi is super friendly and very helpful, offering tons of great travel advice. I had a great two night stay here and hope to stay again next time I'm in Athens!

  • Kalliopi is the perfect host - she was extremely helpful in getting us quickly acclimated to Athens for our brief stay. Once we arrived, she gave us a Greek cell phone to contact her/use to call local businesses/taxis, and some incredible recommendations on places to eat and drink we would have never found on our own! Her place is cute and clean, with a cool peek of the Acropolis out the back porch. The bedroom is medium sized, down a flight of stairs, but doesn't have a door. It didn't bother me a bit, and I felt like my guest and I had total privacy. I'd absolutely recommend a stay at Kalliopi's and I hope to hang out with her again!
