The two bus stops which will take you too and from the Centre of Athens are only 5 minutes walk from the apartment. Trolley No. 12 will take you directly to Omonia Square or Syndagma Square where you can begin your city tour. There is also the Metro station about a 15 minute walk from the apartment. If you use the Metro Station, you should be aware that every Metro station is a museum in itself , where antiquities found during the excavations for the building of the Metro have been put on exhibition. So it is an experience on its own to use the Metro and get off at each stop to see what has been found.
Also the central bus station for Northern Greece is 15 minutes away so you can continue your journey from here.

  • Μια ακόμη φορά στον Λέανδρο, όλα καλά, Λέανδρε σ ευχαριστούμε, την άλλη φορά πάλι

    March 2014
  • good appartement and friendly host

  • We came to Athens to do some studying and keep to a tight budget. Leandros' flat was perfect to do both - spacious, good location (a stone's throw away from the ruins of Plato's Academy, which is quite an attraction for a philosophy student) and with a cosy kitchen, where we created a lot of traditional Greek recipes. It was a very nice trip overall, but this flat topped it and we can only hope to find something equally lovely back in old Blighty.

  • I had a very nice stay in Leandros appartment. There was anything we need and something more.

    This part of the city is not so fancy but you can walk from here in around 25 minutes to the center.

  • Leandro's place was extremely good! The apartment was very clean and organized and it includes absolutely everything you need! It is very close to the center of Athens and minutes away from public transportation. The host was very polite and helpful! We would definitely stay there again!

  • My boyfriend and I had a great time at Leandros space. it was in a clean with lots of space. a good place to come back to and relax after a long day of exploring. the location was not to far away from the city center, making it convent to get around. plus Leandros provided us with clean towels, shampoo and conditioner. even coffee and milk in the frig. ! truly amazing airbnb experience!

  • Στο διαμέρισμα του Λέανδρου έμεινε ένας συνεργάτης μου. Η επικοινωνία μεταξύ τους
    ήταν άψογη, ο Λέανδρος ήταν άμεσα διαθέσιμος όποτε χρειάστηκε. Ο χώρος άριστος, τον προτείνω ανεπιφύλακτα!! Ευχαριστώ Λέανδρε, εύχομαι την επόμενη φορά να φιλοξενήσεις & εμένα.

  • Leandros's place was very comfortable, close to the local grocery shop, and I enjoyed spending 2 weeks here. Leandros is a great host and made every effort to make sure my needs we're attended to. Highly recommended!

  • We loved staying in Leo's apartment in Athens. It was clean, spacious and the neighborhood was quiet. Everything worked perfectly and we wished we had stayed longer. The only issue was when we left. We were not told exactly where to put the key and in every place we've stayed, we left it behind the door. He never told us that the door locks automatically. It hurts that we are now being accused of not following rules when we left the place spotless, and even restocked it with olive oil, condiments, and laundry detergent for the next guests.

    Response from Leandros:

    i definitely explained to the guests that upon their departure to leave the keys at the same spot they found it on their arrival...ON the table... i did not accused them for LOCKING the door but for leaving the keys behind the door...that in result was that i could not put the key and open the door... and they knew it... because if they didn't they would have been outside the apartment the previous nights they stayed... they made a mistake and dont admit it... no problem...
    have a great time and keep in mind that all over the world keys behind a door dont let you put other set of keys from the outside...!!!

  • Leandro's apartment was absolutely wonderful. We met his father at the apartment (15 mins walk after getting off bus stop from airport) and his father was so welcoming.

    The place was so clean and was very charming to stay in. This is 100 times better than staying in a hotel!

    There are many cafes within 5 mins walk of the apartment, a McDonalds around the corner, and a big supermarket on the main road - very convenient.

    In the fridge, Leandros also provided us with welcoming carton of milk, bread, jam, coffee, tea - everything for breakfast.

    Terrific place, absolutely recommend it!

About
I was born in Athens and lived there until I was 25. I now live on the beautiful island of Andros, a near- by island that was my vacation spot until 2004, when I decided that this was where I wanted to live permanently, away from the hustle and bustle of city life. During the summer months I work in a local hotel as this is one of the best ways to meet people, especially travellers... and who knows, maybe we will meet at some point in time... I also love travelling, meeting new people, learning new cultures - and just seeing as much of the world as I can. As a traveller myself, I know what it means to have good accommodation, friendly hosts and good information. So with this in mind I hope that I can fullfill all these requirements and ensure that your stay in Athens will be as you expecteded. It will be my pleasure to do whatever I can to meet all your needs so that you return home with the best memories.
