About This Listing
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!

Merci pour l'accueil! La chambre est propre, au calme et à 2 pas des restos et boutiques, le quartier de Plaka est génial, très touristique et sécurisé. J'ai pu utilisé la machine à café pour faire les cappuccino et l’hôte a gentiment proposé du pain pour l'accompagner) Merci et cette chambre à recommander.
The room was just fine. Private quiet with en suite bathroom. Anastasia brother looked after me during my stay with lots of tips and that great Greek hospitality. The location could not be better. Just a short walk to all the historical sites. Fully recommended.
The location is very central in a quiet part of the old town. Walking distance to tourist sites. Good value. Host was very friendly and welcoming. Will definitely stay at this property again if I'm in Athens in the future.
Anastasia and her mother were both quite wonderful and their home was very charming and adequately represented in the pictures. There were no surprises regarding accommodations, and if anything, the pictures did not do the apartment justice. Upon our arrival, we were served tea and treats and Anastasia sat down with us and outlined how to get around and answered all our questions, which were numerous. Given that our trip was somewhat last-minute and we didn't have time to properly research things to do and see in Athens, we relied heavily on her recommendations, which were all spot-on. This was only our 2nd Airbnb experience, and it was extremely positive. The location of their apartment was close to virtually everything we wanted to do and/or within a reasonable walking distance to public transportation, which they helped us navigate, and we very much appreciated. It was nice to have room to spread out and unpack, hang our clothes and have access to a private bathroom as well. We would HIGHLY recommend staying here for anyone considering a stay in Athens.
Eu e minha mulher fomos muito bem recebidos pela mãe da Anastasia. Nossas malas foram extraviadas e eles nos ajudaram bastante, entrando em contato com a Air France até que nossas malas fossem entregues. O quarto atendeu às nossas expectativas. Foi muito boa a estada em Atenas.
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.
