The Space

One-bedroom 50 square meters flat/apartment, consisting of a bathroom, kitchen, a living room and bedroom.
Amenities include open wi-fi access and washing machine.
Although it is situated in a very central area of Athens, on the 5th floor, the apartment/flat offers a very nice view of the nearby hill (Strefi hill).
Having a southern direction, it receives a significant amount of sunlight from sunrise to sunset. Ideal for travelers who want to experience the famous Attica sun!
The main entrance of the building is on Alexandras avenue, one of the main roads of Athens, which could also be perceived as the 'border" between the popular Exarchia (where it is situated), Kypseli and Gizi districts of downtown Athens.

Guest Access

Guests will have access to all amenities in the apartment, e.g. kitchen facilities, wi-fi, washing machine and music appliances. Clean towels and sheets are provided to every guest.

Interaction with Guests

I always make sure to be in the apartment during check-in in order to welcome the guests and orientate them on both the apartment and the city through maps and guide books. Always happy recommending places according to the guests interests and questions. Guests are always welcome to join me and my friends on a night out or on a walk.

The Neighborhood

Opposite the building is one of Athens main parks, "Areos" park, ideal for walks, bicycle riding or just sitting on a bench for sunbathing. It is also a spot for many cultural events such as the "Athens Indy Free Festival" which takes place every year and still gives the opportunity to many local underground bands to present their work, as well as the annual book exhibition where publishing houses present their titles.

One of the important museums of Europe and the largest in Greece, the National Archaeological Museum, is within 5-7 minutes walking distance. 11,000 exhibits from prehistorical times to late Antiquity waiting to be discovered by any traveler interested in Ancient History and Art.

Exharchia square is within a 7-8 minutes walking distance. The famous neighborhood is, since its beginning in late 19th century Athens till present day, a student neighborhood of a rather bohemian character which offers a large variety of options:
Eating spots ranging from "souvlaki" places to vegetarian organic restaurants and from Pakistani takeaways to traditional Greek taverns.
Bars where one can listen to different kinds of music including underground electronica, alternative rock, jazz, hip-hop... and the list goes on.
Live scenes where most of the newly formed, as well as some of the well-known local bands can be seen performing.

Getting Around

Access to public transportation is very easy.
Just outside the building a bus and trolley bus stop can be used to go either North or, after six stops, change to "Ampelokipi" metro station which leads straight to the Airport.
Victoria underground station is also within 7 minutes walking distance from the flat where one can use the tube to go as far as the port of Piraeus and catch a ferryboat to any of the world famous Greek islands.
The regional Attica bus stop is also 5 minutes away. One can catch the bus to Cape Sounio, for example, to go swimming during the summer months.

To sum up, this place is ideal for young, culture-loving, low budget travelers, as well as for people who want to experience downtown Athens but would also love to "escape" and travel through the region.
