We are pleased to offer a sunny and spacious room in a unique apartment in the historic area of Plaka. You will be sharing the apartment (140 sqm or 1506 sq.ft.) with my mother and sometimes with myself or my brother (Thai Massage and Yoga Instructor), which means max. another two people, other than yourselves. Since we all live in the city center we can give you the best tips and advices of what's hot and what's not!
The room itself is 22 sqm (236 sq.ft.) and has a cozy little balcony where you can take your breakfast, giving you the feeling that you are situated in the suburbs rather than the city center. It is fully equipped with all necessary appliances and of course air-condition for every room and WiFi. The whole apartment consists of big living room and dining area, separate kitchen with extra dining table, a WC, store room, bathroom with bath tub and 2 extra large bedrooms. There is also a door that isolates your bedroom and the bathroom from the rest of the house for extra privacy. There are two balconies one rear overlooking a green open area and the front one with spectacular views of the Acropolis and the ancient city.
It is 5 minutes walk from the central Syntagma square, from where you can get the metro or bus straight to the airport or the tram to the beach. Also if you travel to the islands, you may take the train to Piraeus port from Monastiraki Station, which is 6 minutes walk. There are a lot of sightseeing literally on your doorstep and loads of amenities all within 5 minutes walk. The area is full of bars and cafes, nice little beautiful shops and galleries as well as some of the best restaurants and traditional tavernas in central Athens. Quiet , safe, residential neighborhood, 2 minutes walk to supermarkets, stores, restaurants, banks and pharmacies. All touristic attractions are here. The Acropolis, the Acropolis Museum, the Herodion Ancient Theatre are just few mins away on foot and reachable through the best walk of the city, through Plaka.
The apartment. despite the fact of being located in the heart of the Ancient ciry and in one of the most vibrant spots of the city, it gives you the chance to truly relax in a pleasant and quite atmosphere. No noise at all! As your bedroom is situated at the back of the apartment overlooking a nice garden, you will feel as sleeping in the countryside!

I was welcomed warmly by Anastasia's brother and later mother and then Anastasia herself. I was comfortable in the apartment, kitchen, and private bedroom and bath. Everything worked wonderfully. I had some great green tea. The Plaka was right there and easy access to most Athens sights. Great neighborhood.
I very much enjoyed staying at this room and felt very welcome and relaxed. I can recommend it. The neighbourhood is also perfectly situated, with many restaurants, only for a super market you have to search a bit, but Anastacia's mother will point it out to you.
This place is great ! Really quiet on this busy part of central Athens. We had everything we needed and the bed was really confortable. We pretty much felt like home and Anastasia's mother has been very friendly and welcoming all along !
This place is beautiful and pleasing. Anastasia's mom, Lela, is really COOL. she is knowledgable in terms of spiritual training and she is so nice. Athens is a mass, the city is not as interesting as I was expecting, but Anastasia's house makes me feel home. It is center located, lots of awesome home style diners, organic supermarkets and cellars around. Just go for it.
房子的位置在plaka的中心地带，到各景点和交通枢纽都很方便。房子很大，有很浓郁的东方风格。卧室很舒适、整洁，并且有一个很大的独立卫生间，布置的很有意思。非常高兴选择了Anastasia的家，Anastasia的妈妈Lela是个瑜伽老师，一直在家中帮助我们，给我们各种建议，非常感谢她，让我们在雅典度过了难忘而开心的五天。下次再去雅典一定会去拜访她们。highly recommend !
Very sympathic hosts and very nice place.
Perfectly situated - footwalk-distance to all important places in the centre of Athens.
Clean, spacy room, own bathroom, silent place although it's so central.
Anastasia and her mother welcomed me very nicely and helped for any questions.
I can recommend this place warmly.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Anastasia's residence. She was away at the time but her mother and brother made me feel most welcome. The room was comfortable, very clean and warm in early February. I had my own bathroom, which was great.The location is excellent in terms of being able to walk to the Acropolis and in its proximity to transport. Anastasia provided me with lots of information about local restaurants though I really enjoyed walking around finding places myself. Plaka is a good place for a tourist to make a base to explore Athens. I had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay, thank you very much!

Hi! I am Anastasia, I come from Athens' city center and have lived in London for 10 years. I can tell you all about "secret" Athens with great choices of food/drink/bars/music/theaters/workshops/gatherings/collectives etc.. I work as an architect and in my spare time i like to cook, climb, go to gigs, see friends, travel and watch movies.
