About This Listing
Welcome to Alice Inn, my cosy micro-boutique bnb concept, where you can enjoy life as a (privileged) local in a fully equipped house that aims squarely at the "budget luxury" niche (I made that one up, but it describes the place beautifully).
I offer a charming 3-storey neoclassical villa, complete with reading room, fully equipped kitchen, dining room and rooftop terrace with views of the acropolis.
The place can accomodate up to 10 people, using a combination of 3 double beds, and 4 folding beds; This is the maximum number of guests, but I have priced it low so that smaller groups can enjoy it too.
I am staying in the house as well, so there is always someone around for security/information/assistance, or just to chat!
Please note that whilst the rooms are ready, the back yard is unfinished, and I'm still rearranging furniture in the common areas until i find the best fit. This will not affect your experience in the least (no dust/noise etc!), but its important for you to know because once the project is fully realised the price in general will rise substantially - so grab a bargain now ;)
My location is awesome - seriously. If you don't believe me, check the reviews :) The house is on a very quiet little street, very close to Syntagma square and the Acropolis (less than 5 minutes by foot). The neighborhood is called Plaka, and it is by far the most charming quarter of central Athens, full of historic monuments, shops, cafes and restaurants. These include the Acropolis Museum, monument of Lysicratous, Temple of Zeus and Hadrian's Library, to name but a few...
It is easy to get around the city from here, either by foot or using the nearby metro and bus system. Coming direct from the airport takes less than 1 hour door to door, and you can get to/from Pireaus port in even less time.
The style of the apartment is eclectic: Deco, Pop, Bohemian and erm, super funky :)

We stayed at alice inn in between christmas and new year's eve.
We had booked nearly the full house and it was perfect.
What a wonderfull experience!
The location is just ideal, in the complete center of athens and everything can be done by foot. If needed taxis are standing at the corner of the street and always available.
The house is very nicely decorated and very comfortable.
Our host John looks carefully on his guests and is always available for a tip on a restaurant, or on the city.
He was really kind to prepare us some christmas cakes, cheese cake and our stay was therefore full with little nice presents.
I definitely recommend the place to everybody! You will love it.
