The Space

Amazingly sunny apartment on the last floor of a 5-floor building in central Athens. The apartment is facing south-west and has an unobstructed view all around. Yes, you can see the Parthenon from the huge balcony while you are having your coffee. Quite spacious for a one-bedroom with a fully equipped kitchen - recently renovated - the apartment is a clean and friendly space to spent your time alone or with your friends or family. The building is located on a footway between Metaxourgeio and Keramikos, 3 minutes from Metaxourgeio underground station. At this price you must be already a bit suspicious! So what is the catch? Its not the cleanest or safest area in the world. It is sort of an unofficial red-light-district/china-town. Many people consider this the most up-coming area in Athens but given the current economic situation in Greece, upcoming is a 'relative' term. If you are the adventurous type, you will discover the hidden coffee shops where local actors and musicians hung out and you may be surprised by the low prices of these places. The area is full of theatres and alternative galleries-studios - not always visible to the naked eye. Walking to Monastiraki from here is a matter of 12 minutes and the commercial centre is within 15 minutes as well. Gazi, which is the main nightlife centre is within 10 minutes walking, but if you are coming back late, its safer to take a taxi. The building has a locking entrance and we have never had any safety issues with the apartment. In our 4 years of leaving here, we actually didn't have any problems with the neighbourhood except having our car broken into a couple of times. By the way, there is plenty of street-parking available around and a very reasonably priced gated parking about a minute away. Clean sheets are provided for the double bed in the bedroom and for the bed-sofa in the living room on request. Last but not least, the bathroom. It takes 10 minutes for the water to become hot for a luxurious bath and there is a laundry machine that you can use. You will find clean towels and everything but don't hesitate to ask for more. Please DO NOT throw any kind of paper in the toilet. It has a history of blocking quite easily.

If you are not off-put by the area that is not what one calls upscale, we are sure you will enjoy absolutely everything about the apartment.
