It was an amazing Appartement near everything you need! It's perfect to go out on the weekend or cook something at home. You can do sightseeing by foot! (Or just watch the ceilings while lying in bed) Prokopis is always there if you need help and the communication was flawless! If we come to Athens once again, we would definitely stay at Prokopis' place!

I am a regular Airbnb user and this stay has been the best so far. The communication was excellent. Prokopis and Maria are excellent hosts! Prokopis speaks French and English. They provided a full list of directions including interesting point around the neighborhood. The place is very easy to find and location is in the vibrant center of Athens , and THE place to be during the day and night. Upon arrival I was impressed with the building of pre-war architecture. The apartment I stayed was newly decorated and in a very elegant style while keeping some very nice original features like the ceiling alfresco!! It was spotless clean and comfortable Check out was quick and easy. I highly recommend this place for your next visit to Athens for business or pleasure !!!

We stayed four nights in this wonderful house with the great neoclassic athmosphere. Our hosts were very helpful and flexibel (for example we arrived after midnight...). Prokopis even brought us some breakfast on the first morning. Very central location, close to Monasteraki and close to a very nice area with restaurants and bars (however far enough, so we did not hear it at night).

This is a unique residence, very close to all the antiquities and activities in the centre of Athens! The building is impressive, with breath-taking ceilings that you can watch lying on your bed. It has a large kitchen and the shower is cleverly placed. The separate wc is very practical. Maria and her son Prokopis are very helpful and attentive. I had a really nice time in a very large apartment, overlooking a green backyard. Overall, value for money is unbeatable.

L'appartamento di Maria e Prokopis vi lascia a bocca aperta appena entrate: soffitti alti e affrescati, location ampia e dotata di ogni comfort. Il locale in centro città vi permette di raggiungere a piedi tutti i siti di interesse di Atene. Soggiorno assolutamente consigliato!
