A nice comfortable space (35m2) consisting of two rooms, with a small balcony, lying on a very calm narrow street, with all necessary shopping amenities nearby.
Most of the basic spots of the center of Athens are in a walking distance (15-20 min.)
The apartment, because of its position very close to the city center, provides an easy and comfortable accommodation in a quite and safe neighborhood, for those who want to see the attractions of Athens and know the everyday life.
It is a roomy nice space (35m2), lying on the second floor of an apartment building, with a small balcony looking to the street, consisting of two rooms:
- A main room, being used as living-room and bedroom, with a comfortable foldable double bed, easily converting to a sofa, if needed, a television set, as well as a spacious wardrobe and two book closets.
- A kitchen – dining-room with a dining table for 4 persons, an office corner and enough spare space for a foldable single bed to be set up, so that a 3d person can be accommodated.
There is a fully equipped kitchen with a refrigerator, two electric hobs, a kettle, a coffee maker, a microwave oven, plates, cutlery, pots etc.
In the bathroom there is a bathtub and a small washing machine.
-There is Wireless router in the apartment, providing Broadband Internet with unlimited use (Wi-Fi or wired).
-Sheets and towels are included and second clean sets are provided for more than a week stay.
-A floor-fan is provided.
We generally meet guests in the apartment to give them the keys, so there is also the opportunity to provide to them information about the operation of the house, as well as about the neighborhood. As our professional establishment is nearby, it's easy to meet them again, if they like, and to respond to any possible problem.
The neighborhood is a very quite and safe residential area, very close to the center of Athens. Near the place there are several shops, including a bakery shop, a butcher's, a super-market, an excellent wine shop, as well as cooked food providing shops.
The apartment lies very close to Charilaou Trikoupi, Ippokratous and Leoforos Alexandras streets, where one can find public transport to any direction, including Acropolis (directly). The walking distance from several spots of the center of Athens (Academia, Omonia, Metro station, Archaeological Museum, Exarcheia square) is about fifteen minutes (a kilometer less or more).
One can find relatively easily (depending on the hour of the day) free parking places at a distance less than 200 m. from the apartment.
The access from the Airport is easy using the “Metro” (direct line to “Ampelokipi Station”) and then a bus, for a route about a 1,5 km. The bus stop is at a 300 m. distance from the house.
Living at Fani and Georges place in Athens was really a perfect choice for us. The appartement was lovely furnished and perfectly fine for two people to have a great and cosy time. Also the house was very near to the city center and so we just enjoyed our daily walk down the hill to discover Athens hotspots. Fani and George made us feel very welcome with their selfmade jam and olive oil and all the great advices they gave us! We will definitly choose their flat if it comes to another stay in Athens!
George was an incredible host! He went above & beyond accommodating us while we were staying at his apartment. He gave us many recommendations for things to do in Athens and the apartment itself was very clean and comfortable. Highly recommended!
Vraiment je recommande sans hésiter :
- Fani et Georges sont très gentils et répondent rapidement à toutes les questions !
- L'appartement est propre, bien équipé et très bien situé, le quartier est calme (très très peu de circulation dans la rue, ce qui est très appréciable à Athènes).
- Il est proche de tout ! (commerces, petits bars sympa à Exarchia, restaurants, centre accessible facilement en bus/metro ou à pieds en une vingtaine de minutes seulement)
- Petites attentions vraiment charmantes : à notre arrivée, de petits gâteaux de Noël nous attendaient, ainsi que de la confiture et de l'huile d'olive familiale !
Je n'hésiterai pas une seconde à revenir lors d'un prochain séjour à Athènes !
Found that the place is compact and very functional. Location is perfect: downtown, diverse environment, most of sites were in walking distance. Also the host is intelligent and reliable. So book if available, would not regret!
I have been living a month there in Mantzakou, and let me say, I have enjoyed a wonderful stay.
This little flat is perfect, ...for me it was! Big enough to stay for a couple, or even for a third person if necessary. Comfortable, I slept there perfectly. Truth is I haven’t slept so much because there is so many things to do around! Little kitchen that is purposeful for small cooking and enjoying the tasty products you will buy in the market outside next street on Saturday, or on Friday in Kolonaki.. not so far as well ! Tiny bathroom that has everything you need, including a washing machine, not the last technology but doing its job. And a comfortable main room with a small balcony… the only point is… there is not so much day light ..(Small street like almost everywhere in Athens) BUT: as you are probably not going to come in Athens to stay all day at home, this is the best situation in town… trust me. Tree minutes from your door and you are on Streffi hill enjoying wonderful view 360 degrees around on 75 percent of Athens, and unless you are completely myopic, you will clearly see the acropolis and Parthenon! So make yourself a Greek coffee with the recipe of the owner and Fantastic George (Greek grounded coffee is already provided in the kitchen with the small cooking pot dedicated to success in the process) and jump right over there and you will see… life so good sometimes. Or 15 min the other way, turn right going outside and almost straight… you get to be on top of Likavitou hill… enjoying a sunrise with the perfect view on ALL Athens.. (wake up early, told you) can’t be better. There is plenty of nice café bar restaurant all around, to meet local people.. Only met kind and nice Greek people everywhere… could go on and on again telling how perfect it is but I’m afraid you are going to book when I will want to go back there…
There are plenty of public transportation… so don’t worry, but enjoy your legs, the best way to move there…but careful with drivers, it seems like they ignore pedestrians
George is remarkably nice and helpful, he has an architecture office 10 min away, with wonderful partner and team.. actually had the opportunity to meet few times and share lunch (even was invited on my name’s day…Greek tradition to celebrate name’s day, but you might not be so lucky ;-)so what ever happen, he will try find a solution..
Still not convinced ?
Thank you George and see you soon !
All the best...
Thank you very much Nicolas for your great and accurate review.
We had the opportunity to know each other better and I believe that you have understood that we try to do our best, in order to all our guests be content, at least concerning their stay, as we also would like to be, traveling abroad.
After all, Greek Hospitality is not a myth!
good value for money. If I 'm in athens , I will choose to stay there again . Close to all kinds of transportation , in the heart of the city . It was exactly want I wanted.
The flat was very convenient and located in a good neighborhood.Communication with the hosts was excellent and they were very eager to help with the house.Overall a very pleasant experience.
It was my first time using Airbnb and I'm extremely satisfied. The flat is clean and with all what you need during your vacation. Thank you Fani and George, you were very helpful hosts. When I'm back to Athens, I'm sure I'll rent this flat again!
