The Space

Cozy 20m2 studio at the center of the city surrounded (email hidden) yard. The studio is quiet as has a fare distance from the road and is located opposite the Strefis hill park, where someone can go for an evening stroll. It has its independent entrance from the rest of the house as well as its own bathroom and a small kitchen. Being at Exarchia is only 5’ walk away from Panepistimio or Omonoia metro station and provides easy access to other means of public transportation (busses, trolleys, tram etc.). The major archeological sites are in walk distance too. For instance the archaeological museum is just five blocks away and the Acropolis with its new museum is in 30 minutes’ walk distance. Monastiraki square and Plaka (the old city) are located 20 minutes’ walk away and Psyri and Keramikos square, where the heart of Athens night life is located are 15 minutes’ walk or a metro station away respectively.
Ideal for couples who want to explore the multifarious center of the city, the room can also accommodate up to three people or a family with one kid. The house has its own story as it was built after the First World War at 1920 and at the trunk of the palm tree which standing at its yard, someone still sees marks by bullets from the street fights in Athens during the Greek civil war at 1946. At 80’s and 90’s the house was one of the most –some claim the most- famous rock bar of the city as at its stage many local and international rock stars gave concerts including Nick Cave.
Its yard, separated in different levels and spread with plants and trees give the impression that you are somewhere far away from the noisy and crowdy center of a big city, although you enjoy your breakfast, lunch, dinner or just relaxing right at the centre.

  • Incredible place to stay, Romanos is the kindest person I've met!!

    We arrived a little bit tired and a plate of greek food was waiting for us in this beautiful apartment. The flat is ideally situated in the center with plenty of restaurants and nice spots, clean with delicious breakfast. Satisfied at 100%!!

    Thank you Romanos, kisses to your mom too :)

  • We had a great time. The studio was lovely, very clean and had everything we needed. The small kitchen was a bonus. Ramanos picked us up from the airport (at extra charge) which was very helpful and when we arrived his mother, Maria had prepared us a delicious plate of Greek food, plus some wine was provided - very much appreciated. On the morning of leaving Maria made us Greek pancakes which were again delicious and Ramanos dropped us where we needed to go to get the bus to where we were going next. Athens was extremely hot when we were there but the studio was good in the heat with fans. Would very much enjoy staying there again. There are actually two studios, both similar, one upstairs where we were, and one downstairs. If you have big suitcases or have difficulty with spiral stairs, the downstairs one might be easier. To go the the main sites at the Acropolis and Plaka, we walked about 15 minutes and then caught the Metro into Plaka, but you could walk all the way if you wanted. We also visited the Archeological Museum which was great and only a short walk from the studio. A good thing to do is take the walk up behind the studio and talk the pathway up onto the top of the hill for a panoramic view to the Parthenon. The immediate area is interesting with small shops and a very wide range of artistic graffiti, much expressing the frustrations for Greeks of recent times.
    Big thanks to Maria and Ramanos for your wonderful hospitality and conversation.

  • We stayed at Romanos twice (at the beginning and the end of our trip). We enjoyed it very much! It was very clean and as on the pictures. When we arrived Romanos mom served us delicious greek food, which was perfect. At the end we had the honor in celebrating Romanos birthday together, with lovely greek food. It was a pleasure staying at Romanos and we can recommend everybody booking the studios!

  • Thanks to Romanos for a really great stay! He is so friendly, welcoming and above all very helpful! The studio was spotlessly clean, very comfortable and in close proximity to everything Athens has to offer. I will be back and I can very highly recommend staying with Romanos!

  • We had a really great (email hidden)e appartment is even more beautiful and stylish then on the pictures. Romanos greated us with a big plate of Metedes, home made bread from his Mother and a lot of cool insider tipps for our stay in Athens. Next time Athens we will be back!

  • I spent almost 3 weeks in this cozy and beautiful studio and it was just perfect. The studio looks like on the pictures and everything was very clean. Romanos and his family are amazing hosts and really made me feel at home.
    The house is very special and a rarity in the centre of Athens. The garden is so calm and relaxing that you might not feel like going out and do sightseeing : )
    Thanks a lot!

  • At the heart of the youth and dynamic quarter of Exarchia, a studio nested (email hidden) setting, with a private terrace !
    Very practical and cosy.
    The bed is a little bit too small for 2, but there is also a couch if you want to split. Romanos is very very nice, he drove us on the highest hill of Athens to admire the best panorama over the city, at sunset !
    His mother had prepared some food for our arrival and enough for the first breakfast, and was very attentive to us.
    Moreover, there's a nice "tradition": when leaving, you leave a bottle of beer in the fridge, so that when you arrive, there is a beer in the fridge :)
    At Romanos (and his parents)'s place, you feel like home, but disoriented.
    We will come back, it's sure !

  • Thank you so much, Romanos! Your appartment is beautiful, cosy, just wonderful. The dinner your parents cooked at the first evening was very delicious - a perfect start into our short stay in Athens. Thanks a lot for driving us to the car rental station! If you ever come to Cologne, let us know! We will be very happy to host you and show you the (website hidden) wishes,
    Hannah and Tobi

  • Wat is het toch bijzonder wanneer je echt als gast wordt ontvangen. Romanos heeft ons opgepikt op de luchthaven .... 'thuis' aangekomen, stond een schaal met mooie Griekse hapjes, een karafje wijn en zelfgebakken brood op ons te wachten.
    Het appartement is heel stijlvol, knus, rustig en in de directe omgeving zijn veel leuke plekjes voor een drankje en een hapje buitenshuis. Als je op zaterdag verblijft, wordt je 's ochtends verrast met in de straat een lokale markt met groente en fruit. De Griekse aardbeien overtreffen de Nederlandse. Ze zijn groot en zoet uit zichzelf. Mmmm.
    Vanuit het appartement loop je in 20 minuten naar het centrum. Goed te doen!

    Ramonos and parents,
    Thank you very much for your hospitality!

  • "Strategic" spot, near my favourite neighbourhood of Exarcheia. The house is a rare occurance in the center of the greek capital. It is actually living past, a past before the massive blocks of flats conquered the urban environment of Athens! The interior cozy and quiet. Romanos and his family warm and friendly.
    I really can't think of drawback, highly suggested!
