Cosy 20m2 studio in the city-centre surrounded by a bright and leafy yard. The studio is quiet as it is a fair distance away from the road and is located at the foot of Strefi Hill, where one can go for an evening stroll. It has its own separate entrance, independent from the rest of the house, as well as its own bathroom and small kitchen. Situated in the neighbourhood of Exarchia, it is only a 5min walk away from Panepistimio or Omonoia metro (tube) stations, and provides easy access to other means of public transportation (buses, trolleys, tram etc.). The major archaeological sites are within walking distance too. For instance the archaeological museum is just five blocks away, and the Acropolis with its new museum is within 30mins walking distance. Monastiraki square and Plaka (the old town) are just a 20min walk away, and Psyri and Keramikos square, where the heart of Athens nightlife is located, are either a 15min walk, or a metro station away respectively. Ideal for couples who want to explore the diverse centre of the city, as well as students attending seminars or professionals on business trips. The room can accommodate up to three people, or a family with one child. The house, built in 1920 just after the First World War, is steeped in history. On the trunk of the palm tree which stands in the yard, you can still see the marks left by the bullets from the street fights in Athens during the Greek civil war in 1946. In the 80’s and 90’s the house was one of the most (some claim the most) famous rock-bars of the city, with many local and international rock-stars including Nick Cave having performed on its stage. Its yard, separated into different levels, is a cool and welcome oasis of plants and trees, giving the impression that you are somewhere far away from the noisy and crowded centre of a big city. It is perfect for enjoying your breakfast, lunch, or an al fresco glass of wine, or just relaxing and unwinding after a tiring day of sightseeing.
Romanos and his family are absolute pros at hospitality! Upon arrival we were offered a host of delicious Greek appetizers, guidance on getting around Athens, and information on how to contact them for more information. The second to last day Romanos mother made a delicious funnel cake breakfast for us that was exceptional.
What a lovely airbnb experience. Wonderful studio and such a lovely family. Thanks again!
Staying at the dream studio was a lovely experience. The area is right off the tourist track so much more interesting. I suppose it might not be everyone's 5 fantastic stars of an area, but for anyone with imagination it would be ! Though I wouldnt particularly want to walk about at night alone, as the metro is further than just round the corner, during the day I felt totally safe exploring - loved it and would definitely jreturn to the same area again. Nice local cafes and restaurants nearby. It is possible to cook there, and as there's a great fruit and veg market on Saturday and food shops close, this was very useful. Romano and Marie - his mother who lives next door - are truly kind, generous spirits, ready to help or answer any queries about Greece. Romano even made a phone call on my behalf, and really put himself out to ensure my trip was smooth. He's an interesting person, philosopher and writer, and his mother equally interesting and talented. I felt very lucky to be there and sitting on the balcony when the sun shone was bliss! But the most fantastic thing was some delicious food which Marie had prepared for when I arrived ! And tasty food for breakfast. She makes a real effort to prepare the room with love and care. Highly recommended.
We had a great stay at Romanos' place. Despite our late arrival, his parents made us feel so welcome from the beginning at their beautiful and special place. The room looks just like in the pictures and its location at the bottom of Strefi hill in Exarcheia is perfect.
温馨舒适的独立房间，在雅典中心城区的安静角落。刚进屋就能发现Maria妈妈热情准备的地中海风情午餐，美味且漂亮。Romanos热心为我们准备了出行地图并说明注意事项，Maria妈妈更是应我们要求为我们朗读了几首希腊诗歌，并热心把我们都很喜欢的卡瓦菲斯的《城市》一诗转写成对应的拉丁字母版，方便我们识记。周六就在楼下街道就是热闹的集市，各种便宜又好吃的水果，尤其是橙子，每一个都清香味甜。非常喜欢雅典窄小清静的街道，漫墙自由挥洒的涂鸦，随处可见的二手书店。感谢Romanos和温柔的Maria妈妈，让我的第一次Airbnb之旅成为非常美好的记忆，希望有机会再见。Thanks Romanos and Maria Mama for all your kind company in the nice house:-)
The old Athens style city house and its colorful flat are amazingly beautiful. It is indeed a historical and special place to stay in all terms of positivity. The location is perfect to explore the alternative district of Exarchia and the city center or to relax at the nice garden after touring the city or starting the day in the morning. Organisation and arrival were really uncomplicated as Romanos and his family were already waiting at the house with good food, tasty snacks and nice conversation ... Highly recommended!!!
We had à great time! The appartment is so cute and looks like the photos! Not shown is the lovely balcony!
The appartment is situated 5 min walk from à lively neighbourhood with lost of cozy bars and restaurants, the metro is 10 min walk.
I would really recommend you to stay at Romano's. Hè is very quick with returning emails. And Will give you information you need, if you want to go somewhere which is not in your travel book!
