One-bedroom 50 square meters flat/apartment, consisting of a bathroom,kitchen, a living room and bedroom.

Although it is situated in a very central area of Athens,on the 5th floor , the appartment /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 situated) , Kypseli and Gizi districts of downtown Athens.
Opposite the building is one Athens's main parks, Areos park, ideal for walks, bicycle riding or just siting 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 district ". A lively neighborhood of a rather "Bohemian" character which offers a large variety options.:
Eating spots ranging from "souvlaki" places to vegeterian organic restaurants and from Pakistani take a ways 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.
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 Pireus 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 Sounion 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.
Doros's place is great, just like everyone here says, and Doros himself is nice, helpful and very friendly. The apartment is in a great location and was clean and comfortable. Also, this needs to be mentioned -- Doros's record collection is off the hook! Getting to listen to some of my favorite albums on vinyl was a real treat and made my stay in Athens just a little bit nicer.
What a great place!! What a great host! Really enjoyed my stay at Doros' spot. It's a great location..walking distance to Athens Archeological museum and Victoria subway. He was very attentive and made sure that I had everything I needed. He even invited me out to hang with him and his friends, which was so much fun. It was nice to actually bond and hear what life in Greece is like. I HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice, quiet place to stay while in Athens.
Staying at Elpidoros's place was very comfortable. The apartment gets a lot of sun, which is nice, and it has a great location. Doros was very welcoming and accommodating.
Doros was a great host! He waited for us at his amazing apartment and he spent some time recommending us some places to go to.
His apartment is perfect: it has all the facilities he mentions: the wifi connection really works (and it is fast), everything is perfectly clean and apart from that, you can count on him if you need antything.
We also spent one night with him and it was a blast.
We thorougly recommend his place.
Well where to start such a great apartment. Great location close to the centre and Victoria station close by across the street from the park. quiet location. balcony is the best part sun all day. everything in the place was great bed was great. and i can cook when i fell like it. bit old stuff but who cares.. Elpidoforos was a great person and was so so friendly... Deffo stay again. my grandmother who live in Piraeus was very jealous :P....
Doros answered very quickly to my messages and the communication was very easy and efficient. He is a cool and polite guy. He came to open the appartement for me although it was January 1st.
It is a sweet little old Athenian appartment. Clean sheets and towels, confortable double bed, air condition in both rooms (important in Athens!!!), sunny balconies, cosy living room, kitchen with many facilities. It felt like staying at a cousin's (student's) house. If you are spoilt, you might find the place old. If you are an easy going frequent traveller, you will appreciate the place, the neighbourghood (Exarheia square) and the easy access to the airport. For me it was simply great.
Doros, I'll be back!!!!!
My mother and I had an incredible stay in Athens, and that was due in a large part to Doros and his beautiful apartment. The location could not be more perfect. It was a brisk 30 minute walk to the center of the city - close enough to reach easily, but far enough from the hustle and bustle of city life. The apartment is welcoming, clean, and very cozy. Doros was so helpful in helping us plan out our stay, and he was always quick to respond if we had any questions or needed assistance with anything. I would be delighted to stay in Doros' apartment again should I find myself in Athens in the future!
Staying at Doros place was perfect ! In the center of Athens, 30min walking to the historical center was ideal to enjoy each part of the city. The apartment allow us to appreciate the sun in the morning and a straight view to the hill and the park in front of the building was nice to walk around and enjoy the Chrismas ambiance.
The apartment is complete and well organized and allow our staying to be very comfortable ! All the maps and books helped to have an overview of Athens but Doros adviced nice places where to go and to eat ! Thanks for all !!
We stayed at Doros' apartment in December 2013 and we couldn't be more happy with our choice. Doros was waiting for us on the street and we were really grateful for that. He even bought us some Greek cheese pies to try and we loved it. The apartment was just right for 2 persons and includes a functional kitchen. We loved how cosy it is and wished we could stay longer. Doros was a great host and gave us very good recommendations on what to see and eat. The apartment is only about 10mins walk to Victoria station so location was perfect. We would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Athens!
Doros was a perfect host, available and really sympathetic, ready to welcome you with a lot of informations about his city. The flat is very well situated and clean, with all amenities that you need.
The price is more than honest, and you feel that Doros does it more for community interest than for money.
