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!!!
Unser Gastgeber war unglaublich zuvorkommend und hilfsbereit. Er hat uns sogar am Flughafen abgeholt und auf dem Weg zur Wohnung wertvolle Tipps gegeben sowie uns direkt zu einem Aussichtspunkt über Athen gebracht! Die Wohnung war schön, und wie wir uns sie vorgestellt haben. Noch dazu wurden wir von Romanos Mutter, die in der Nachbarschaft wohnt rührend umsorgt und mit viel Wärme empfangen.
Alles in allem können wir Romanos als Gastgeber bestens empfehlen!!
Romanos is great! Very kind, calm and gave us a ton of information about local things. So glad he was our host!
We had delayed flights & he picked us up from the airport which was perfect after long journey. I highly recommend requesting this service from him if u need it. Worth 35 euros easy.
The studio is very cute, simple & very comfortable. His family residence is just next door so they were always available. It's in a perfect location within Athens. We walked everywhere. The view from our patio was nice with vines growing over top and another level of patio with cute setting. The photos are accurate, very Mediterranean & relaxing. And this was even now during their colder days.
Neighborhood felt safe & right in heart of athens. Local restaurants r good & walk there. Acropolis, museums, all very close.
His mom is a doll! She greeted us warmly & brought us Greek treats on our late arrival. She even did some well needed laundry for us. Thanks mom! ;)
I Definitely recommend a stay there & would go back again.
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!
Our stay at Romanos's studio was every bit as excellent as it sounded from the reviews. Our flights were delayed badly, and Romanos and his parents were very accommodating and stayed up very late to welcome us at the apartment. And, what's more, when we got there, his mother had prepared for us a delicious meal of home-made traditional Greek foods. They were so very generous, and we are extremely grateful for all they did for us!
Romanos was great with communicating before we arrived, and gave straightforward directions to the apartment. The apartment itself is well-equipped for a short stay and tastefully decorated. There is a lovely verandah where we ate most of our meals and enjoyed the sunshine. The wifi comes and goes, but it was not a problem for us. It's fast enough to do what you need to do - check maps, send emails etc etc. After all, why would anyone go to Exarchia to sit at home and stream Netflix?
Exarchia, the area where the apartment is located, is 'bohemian', and offers a glimpse of the political activity in Athens at the moment. We found it very interesting to stay there, although I can imagine that some people might find it a little overwhelming, since there so much activity in public areas. There is a strong sense of community in the shops around the house, and we were happy to greet the same people everyday when we went out and every evening when we came back.
There are many good value cafes and bars around, and there is an excellent fresh produce market on Saturdays. The house is a pleasant walk to the historical centre, and to surrounding suburbs.
We wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else when we return to Athens. This is the one!
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.

I've spent the first week of 2015 with my friend by Romanos in his Dream studio. I do love the name Dream Studio, because everything there looks really like in a Dream. The room is so beautiful the small yard is also so cute. One can enjoy a wonderful afternoon there. In addition, the Dream studio is near to the Subway station Omonia, that makes our trip there so convenient.
About Romanos and his Family,
Romanos is absolutly the best gentleman I've met in Athens, he took us up in der middle of the night from the airport, introduced the history, culture and restaurants in Athens. Those are really secret tips one cannot get from others. His such a nice person. At the night we arrived, we had get some homemade food from his mother, I feel so grateful!
If I come back to Athens again, I'll choose the Dream studio once again without hesitation!
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!

Nous avons séjourné quelques jours chez Romanos juste après Noël 2014. Tout s'est très bien passé. Romanos est venu nous chercher à l'aéroport. Sur le chemin, nous avons fait un détour au sommet d'une colline afin d'avoir une vue d'ensemble de la ville. A notre arrivée au studio, la maman avait préparé un plateau de mézés pour nous accueillir.
Le studio est conforme à la description et correspondait tout à fait à notre attente. Le quartier est très sympathique avec des restaurants et des bars que Romanos nous avait conseillé. Le centre ville est à 15 minutes à pied. Il y a aussi le métro tout près.
Nous avons eu l'occasion d'échanger avec toute la famille sur tous les sujets intéressants : la ville,les ballades à faire , l'organisation de la suite de notre voyage mais aussi sur la situation politique de la Grèce par exemple.
Nous reviendrons sans hésitation à cette adresse lors d'un futur voyage à Athènes.
