Description

The space

A great choice for your stay in Athens!
The appartment is located in a safe and quiet neighbourhood near the historical center of Athens, Greece. It's only 5 minutes walk from metro station (green line, Petralona) and the bus station. You can reach Syntagma, Plaka, Thissio, Monastiraki, Acropolis and most of the must-see places in only 10 minutes time. Very close to the shopping part of the city as well! All the other must see places, like the Archaeological museum, you can reach them in 15 minutes by train.
It's also only 5 minutes walk from the Filopappou hill, part of the ancient city of Athens where Pnyx and other famous places are situated, while getting to the Acropolis will take 20 minutes walk (more or less)! If you like walking, you will love the neighbourhood!
The name of the area is Petralona. Petralona a very typical, in terms of architecture, part of how Athens used to be about 40-50 years ago. A walk around the area will unveil some secrets of the city...:-) Meanwhile, the area is lately one of the most hip areas of the city, famous for its cozy bars and traditional taverns...
I love to walk around the area with Viktor, my dog - a very well - behaved black labrador!
The appartment is 70sq.m. and there is 1 bedroom with a double bed, 1 office with a sofa which can be turned into a double bed, a bathroom and a living room with a kitchen. It's on the 6th floor, so a sky view is offered!

We loved staying at Foteini's place. She is a very friendly and caring host. We saw her and her dog Victor just once briefly on arrival and enjoyed their company very much. The flat has very good atmosphere, we enjoyed lazy mornings on the balcony, listening to the birds singing in lush shrubs growing in the pots there. We would like to come back soon.

Unfortunately I didn't meet Foteini personally but rather her friend Dimitris. Dimitris was super nice and let me in and showed me around and Foteini was helpful over the phone.

Great stay at Foteini's apartment even though just for one night. She was not there but I was greeted by Dimitris who was extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating. The apartment is in a wonderful location near the Petralona Metro stop. There are lots of restaurants, cafes and night life within a few meters walk. The apartment is very well stocked, clean and tidy, with a very spacious bedroom with air conditioning. Highly recommended!

Foteini wasn't in town when we stayed in the apartment, but she made it very very easy to meet up with her friend and find our way to the place - she was in communication with us the whole time. When her friend received us, he was very kind and gave us advice on the nice things to do in the area. The apartment looked just like the pictures, and was a very lovely place to spend our time in Athens - I stayed with a friend and there was plenty of room for both of us. The neighborhood was very pretty and the location ideal for exploring beautiful views of the Acropolis, and it was incredibly easy to get to all the places we wanted via walking//short walk to metro. Would definitely recommend!

Foteini is very helpful & a pleasure to deal with. Room is lovely set in an apartment with style! Foteini an intelligent young woman. A lovely labrador too! Location has not much atmosphere and quite a few blocks from Metro, 5-10 min walk but still manageable.

Currently I am working on my PhD on museum theatre and the good thing is that I travel often...when not I usually study at home, in libraries or in cafes (that's my favorite)...
I love theatre, museums, books, movies, sports, meeting interesting people, enjoying long walks with my dog, hanging around in bars & cafes, looking for the unexpected, traveling, cooking (sometimes) & smiling!
Through Airbnb I've met some really interesting people!
