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.
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!
Wir sind Abends bei strömendem Regen angekommen (Januar),wurden dort jedoch mit einem warmen Lächeln empfangen und in dem kleinen warmen gemütlichen Zimmer standen griechische Mezze, Wein und Marias selbstgebackenes Brot. Wir fühlten uns sofort wie zu Hause. Das hübsch gestaltete Zimmer ist sehr ruhig und hat alles, was man für die Selbstversorgung benötigt, und man kann sich gut von den aufregenden Ausflügen in Athen erholen. Es liegt in einem schönen Terrassengarten gut abgeschlossen von der Strasse, umgeben von Blumen und hat eine kleine Terasse. Maria, Theodor (hat einen sehr schönen Lebensmittelladen nebenan) und Romanos geben einem das Gefühl willkommen zu sein und sind sehr hilfreich, haben Tips für die Gegend, in der es viele Bars Restaurants und Tavernen gibt. Es ist nicht der klassische Ort für Athen Touristen, wie ZB die Plaka, aber für politisch Interessierte, aufgeschlossene Menschen die vielleicht spannenste Gegend Athens.
We arrived on a rainy evening, but felt immediatly at home in this comfortable room, being welcomed by Marias Bread, and other Greek Mezes. It is as mall space but it has everything one needs to be independent and have some rest from the exciting city of Athens. The Room lies in a beautiful errace garden, surrounded by flowers with a small balcony well consealed from the street. Maria, Theodor and Romanos really give their best to make stay The area nearby is packed with taverns, cafes musicbars etc. etc. although it should not be considered as a touristy place. One should be aware of its political significance and cultural status, then it can be a real fullfilling experience in contrary to areas like Plaka.
We were very impressed with the hospitable welcome we received on our arrival from Romano and his family.
We were grateful for the food, their assistance in making us comfortable with the room and for all the advice and information of the characteristic places to visit nearby the accommodation that we received.
We were struck by how clean and well serviced the room was, which made it a pleasure for us to stay.
At all times we were made to feel as though we were Greek citizens and part of the family, without overwhelming us and giving us freedom to do whatever we wished.
We would highly recommend this establishment to anyone who would want to experience the culture and lifestyle of the Greeks at its best.
As a final comment, we again wish to thank Roman and family for the wonderful stay we had.

This has to be my best AirBnB experience so far. Romanos & his parents were one of the most warm & friendly hosts I have met so far. The studio, which is part of a sprawling bungalow was cozy, very tastefully decorated & had all the amenities one needs for a short stay. The location of the house is also very convenient, being a mere 20-25 minute walk from the major tourist attractions ( Acropolis, Agora etc.). For travellers coming to Athens, please look no further!

Très bien situé dans un quartier bouillonnant avec plein de petits restos et cafés. Belle maison avec des petites terrasses envahies de plantes. Accueil très agréable avec des petits plats préparés par Maria "avec amour"
We loved staying at Romanos' beautiful little studio. It is decorated really colourfully and made us feel comfortable and at home. His mom, Maria, is the sweetest and even made us up a plate of delicious snacks for when we arrived.
The neighbourhood is really cool and we loved staying in the heart of the city. It's easy enough to take the metro to anywhere in the city, but cabs are pretty affordable too.
Geweldig lang weekend in Athene gehad, mede dankzij dit superappartementje. We kwamen 's avonds aan en werden getrakteerd op een complete, door Romanos' moeder bereide maaltijd met vers zelfgebakken brood, heerlijke Griekse hapjes en zelfs een flesje witte wijn. Ook aan ons ontbijt voor de volgende ochtend was al gedacht. De studio is echt zo gezellig als ie er op de foto's uitziet en het balkon is uiterst geschikt voor lange romantische avonden en heerlijke ontbijtsessies. Vanaf de studio kun je prima naar de stad lopen, in de buurt zijn veel leuke kroegen en eetgelegenheden. De groentemarkt op zaterdag is de moeite waard! Het appartement is een absolute aanrader!
