Description

Beautifully decorated and newly (2015) refurbished flat near the Acropolis with access to a terrace offering views over Lycabettus Hill, the Parthenon and the town.

Situated a stone's throw away from the Acropolis, on the slopes of Philopappou Hill, this ground floor flat offers a very central and spacious accommodation to longer term visitors and tourists on a city-break alike.

The flat gets good light during the day, and has a modern layout and earthy colours. It has access to a terrace through an elevator, where you can enjoy breathtaking views over the Acropolis, Lycabbetus Hill and Mt Hymettos, as well as partial views of the sea and Aegina on clear days.

The flat is composed of a bedroom, a bathroom, a semi-divided living room and a semi-open plan kitchen. There is a 160cm by 200cm bed in the bedroom and a fold-out sofabed that has a 100cm by 200cm mattress. Guests can enjoy unlimited wi-fi; flat has its own natural gas heating which the guests can set to the requisite degrees, and constant supply of hot water; guests will have access to a fridge, a washing machine, a hairdryer, as well as various kitchen utensils, and will have ample space to store their belongings.

I normally live in the flat myself and usually rent it out during the periods that I am away from Athens travelling (I am a travel writer). I provide linen and towels and have friends (professional guides) catering for the guests' needs when not in town.

Despite its close proximity to both the restaurants and shops of Plaka and Theseion as well as nice small local cafes and shops of its own neighbourhood, the flat itself is on a very quiet street, with a lot of greenery and many old houses from the s.

The flat is within 3 minutes' walk (250 metres) from the Acropolis, 5 minutes (450 m) from the Acropolis Museum, 7 minutes (400m) from Plaka and 18 minutes' (1.4km) from Monastiraki. The nearest metro station (Syngrou-Fix) is just 300 metres away; various buses are at the same distance (Syngrou St).

I was very happy to stay at Alexandros' place. It was not possible to enter on the first evening, but the lovely Stella, who looks after the place, made arrangements for me to stay elsewhere, and got me into the place early next morning. I found the place to be a home, and was very taken by the decoration choices, as well as the overall layout and level of cleanliness. There was a problem with the bed slats but between Stella and Alexandros' mom this was easily sorted. The bed itself was quite comfortable. I enjoyed the shower, which was strong and hot. The temperature controls were very good, which I understand is rare in Athens. Did not use the kitchen much, but the sitting area was great. The flat is very centrally located, yet reasonably quiet in terms of traffic. The neighbors could be heard enjoying family time on sunday day, but otherwise it was quite quiet throughout. It is very close to the metro station and the area is full of restaurants, cafes, and small supermarkets. The area was very safe and is, as stated, very close to the acropolis museum. All in all a great stay, thanks for all.

Alex was very helpful--met us at the apartment, and explained everything (except the washing machine). He had a friend in the neighborhood who was also helpful in case of need. The apartment is very comfortable; the description is completely accurate.

Alex was highly responsive, friendly, helpful (provided a map with suggestions) and extremely accommodating even before we arrived. I mentioned that three of us were vegetarians, and he went out of his way to provide restaurant recommendations (although it is fairly easy to find good/great veggie food in Greece). We arrived at around 2.30 am, and Alex and his partner were waiting for us with a chilled bottle of wine and their welcoming smiles. He mentioned that he had hosted guests with diet restrictions in the past, and even took out all the meat/fish out of the fridge - something we didn't remotely expect :). We also hung out on the terrace one night - Alex had fixed it up with a table and chairs :) so we could enjoy the view of the Pantheon. We were four adults - and found the house comfortable/roomy enough - the house in itself feels warm and cosy, but also stylish/thoughtful. It is in a PERFECT location. It is quiet around the apartment, but you walk down 3-5 minutes and you are in the liveliest of neighourhoods. It is also very easy to get to Athens attractions by foot, or to take the Metro from Sigurou Fix. Also FYI, I was on a crutch - post an ankle ligament surgery - but did not have difficulties walking up or down the fairly steep hill to the house. Size wise - depending on how comfortable people are with each other, it may or may not feel a bit tight in the kitchen/or in the mornings for the bathroom, or if you spend a lot of time inside. We had no such issues. All in all, couldn't recommend this listing more! He only lets it out when he is traveling - but if its available - take it! You won't regret it.

Alex's place could not be better situated--walking distance to everything from the Acropolis to excellent neighborhood restaurants. The longer you stay, the more you will appreciate Alex's magnificent library.

Alexandros was really helpful and really well prepared for visitors. He gave us a map with his favourite places marked out, which was really good to have.

Alexander was a wonderful host. I was greeted by a couple of his friends who very kindly showed me around his place and delivered the house keys. Alexander was very prompt in answering my questions and even prepared a map for me (marked up with local destinations worth visiting). The unit is very functional, warm and spacious, conveniently located in a vibrant neighborhood (and on the first floor of the building, which made transport of luggage a breeze) with plenty of restaurants and cafes nearby. The grocery store is a quick few minutes' walk from the apartment. Another plus: the place gets plenty of sunlight in the front during the day! High-speed, problem-free wifi, which was extremely important to me. Lastly, I have to mention that Alexander has a superb collection of books on a wide variety of subjects. Do take advantage of the options!
