Kessariani is one of the Eastern suburbs of Athens, situated 3 km. east of the centre of Athens, at an altitude of 130m., on the NW slopes of Hymettus. It borders with the Municipalities of Zografou and Athens in the North, with Hymettus in the East, with Vironas and Athens (Pagrati) in the South and in the West with Athens again. The overall acreage of Kessariani today, is approximately 8.500 acres, 7.500 of which is a mountainous area and about 1.000 is populated and common area. The actual populate area is about 780 acres. Kessariani has a triangle scheme and a good street plan, based on the central avenue and the other horizontal and vertical to that, streets. Its population, according to the census in 1991, was 27.000, but it actually exceeds 35.000. The suburb today after going through fire and water, is considered to be an advantageous place to live in, mostly due to the environment and the warmth of its people. The suburb is growing; it has won several fights regained its footing and stood up. Today it attracts many people, it has somewhat changed But its history, still wanders about everywhere, it lies in every part of it. History that moulds our character and forms our conscience.
Joe was incredibly helpful on the phone, making sure I got the right bus etc. The place was clean and the bed was comfortable. I arrived in the dark and was picked up as arranged, and then delivered to the airport after a short sleep. A great value stay for a quick overnight in Athens. Thanks Joe.
For the price this is a very nice flat - quite big, with bed, balcony, bathroom and a living room. The location is really nice, not far from the sea with nice taverns and bars...definitely a good deal for that price!
Good points are: The price is incredibly low, the best price I found at airbnb - Joe is a very nice person and very accommodating and tries to help in any issue - near the sea (nearly 10 minutes walk) - Quiet area with neighbors very nice and helpful - good restaurants 15 minutes walk - the house is quiet big and very very very sunny.
Bad points : if you do not have the transfer from/to the airport (for any reason) you'll have to pay nearly 30 euro to go to the house and 30 euro to go back to the airport (we stayed only 1 night and paid paid totally 60 euro for taxi and only 10 euro the house !).
The house needs some more furnish (non gas to cook, no curtains to sleep in the dark, very basic (but clean) utensils. The entrace to the house needs to be adjusted and cleaned.
Worth going there for 1 night only if you have transfer guaranteed, check with Joe before going, he is very helpful.
