The space

A great choice for your stay in Athens!
The appartment is located in a safe and quiet neighbourhood near the historical center of Athens, Greece. It's only 5 minutes walk from metro station (green line, Petralona) and the bus station. You can reach Syntagma, Plaka, Thissio, Monastiraki, Acropolis and most of the must-see places in only 10 minutes time. All the other must see places, like the Archaeological museum, you can reach them in 15 minutes by train.
It's also only 5 minutes walk from the Filopappou hill, part of the ancient city of Athens where Pnyx and other famous places are situated, while getting to the Acropolis will take 20 minutes walk (more or less)! If you like walking, you will love the neighbourhood!
The name of the area is Petralona. Petralona a very typical, in terms of architecture, part of how Athens used to be about 40-50 years ago. A walk around the area will unveil some secrets of the city...:-) Meanwhile, the area is lately one of the most hip areas of the city, famous for its cozy bars and traditional taverns...
I love to walk around the area with Viktor, my dog - a very well - behaved black labrador!
The appartment is 70sq.m. and there is 1 bedroom with a double bed, 1 office with a sofa which can be turned into a double bed, a bathroom and a living room with a kitchen. It's on the 6th floor, so a sky view is offered!

Foteini's apartment is really good. Even though we didn't meet her, we met her friend Dimitris that showed us everything. The place is well equipped and they were really nice, letting us check in really early - around 9:30am - and checking out on the next day around 7:00pm. The location is good, kind of near the Acropolis area, but because of the way the underground is, you may have to change lines twice to get to the historical areal (but no big deal). In the other hand is really fast to get to Piraeus (where the ferries depart and arrive). Bottom line, totally recommend the place.

Foteini was AMAZING--incredibly helpful, generous, funny, flexible, and caring. If you have the chance to stay with her, DO!

This is a great apartment! You will find everything you need, and everything works. It's a new place with that modern clean feel and lots of lovely natural light through the multiple balcony doors. I loved that the bedroom also has a balcony door and plenty of sunlight enters every sunny morning. I was there during the colder weather and the apartment never felt cold! It also has excellent heating if needed throughout, so you always feel relaxed and happy! The location is also great and very close to the city centre! Max 5 mins walk to the train and 5-7 mins by train to get to the centre. Foteini the host is absolutely lovely and friendly and was very obliging with preparing the apartment for me all last minute. To me she felt like a new friend and so staying in her apartment felt very comfortable. Over all a great experience!! I hope it would be available for my next visit! :-)

We stayed at Foteini's flat during christmas vacations. Foteini replied to all our messeges with no delay and had the patience to answer to all our questions regarding our stay at her flat. The flat is situated at Petralona area 5' walk from metro station "petralona". It is on the 6th floor of a new family building with parking place (if you have a jeep type car you wont be able to park since underground parking is too narrow but you can always park at the street). The area is nice and safe. The flat has independent gas heating which was very convinient and the flat was very warm with only 1 hour per day with heat on. Hot water was always available and the we had no disturbances from noise from neighbours or outside. The flat is new with a nice balcony and with very confortable kitchen / living room area. Wi-fi and pc, printer available which was very handy for printing the boarding pass for return flight. Kitchen was fully equipted. There are two rooms (one used as an office with a sofa bed which is very small and has no door) and one main bedroom. The bed was nice and confortable and rooms airy and sunny. We found out some things though that could be improved: there was no cable tv or a subscriber for the tv channels (only 4 local channels and those with no good signal), no window or ventilator in bathroom, wrong position of the shower head handle so all the water comes out when you try to shower, Foteini left some smelly french cheese in the fridge which left a really bad smell every time we opened the fridge, no a/c in bedrooms and only in living room/kitchen area (so I assume it would be difficult to use the flat during summer time). In conclusion the flat is good value for money, Foteini and Victor (the dog) very good hostess. Thank you for a nice stay.

Στο σπίτι δεν έμεινα εγώ, μα ένας συνεργάτης μου. Τα πάντα ήταν όπως είχαν συμφωνηθεί. Αν και η Φωτεινή έλειπε και δεν μπορούσε να είναι εκεί, φρόντισε άμεσα και έστειλε τον φίλο της τον Δημήτρη. Μείναμε απόλυτα ευχαριστημένοι, την προτείνουμε ανεπιφύλακτα!! Ευχαριστούμε Φωτεινή. Ανδρέας

We spent only 3 days in Athens, but very nice days. The apartment is very cozy, well equipped and nice furnished with beautiful large balcony. Well situated, very close to Acropolis and to metro station in a charming part of city. We haven't meet Foteini, but her friend Dimitris, who was waiting for us in the apartment gave us some useful information. Overall, it was a very pleasant place to stay in Athens.

Currently I am working on my PhD on museum theatre and the good thing is that I travel often...when not I usually study at home, in libraries or in cafes (that's my favorite)...
I love theatre, museums, books, movies, sports, meeting interesting people, enjoying long walks with my dog, hanging around in bars & cafes, looking for the unexpected, traveling, cooking (sometimes) & smiling!
Through Airbnb I've met some really interesting people!
