Ideally located for any visitor to experience the unique historic center of Athens. Next to the main pedestrian street leading to Acropolis. Literally at your step all tourist attractions. Thissio neighborhood is a little gem for the connoisseurs. The host has international culture and is guest oriented. Hospitality is my strong point and I am delighted to offer my guests an unforgettable experience of central Athens.

The space

The apartment is located in the historic centre of Athens in Thissio. On foot the guests can visit all ancient tourist attractions as Acropolis, Philopappos Hill, Pnyx Hill, Ancient Agora, Stoa of Attalos Museum, Temple of Hephaestus, National Observatory. Most of the Athenians are in love with this area due to its close proximity to Plaka. Thissio is one of the liveliest neighbourhoods in Athens displaying many buildings with neoclassical architecture that had been turned in coffee houses, bars or classy restaurants. One can easily access Thissio by the metro (Green Line)

Guest access

The apartment is situated at the ground floor of the building with view to a green hill and a church. You live in the downtown Athens and you feel like living in the country. Guests have access to the roof garden where they will enjoy unique views of the Acropolis and the National Observatory of Athens. The view is outstanding both during morning and night time.

Interaction with guests

It will be my pleasure to show you around the neighbourhood along with providing your with tips about your stay in Athens. A walk tour can be provided free of charge. We speak English, French, German.

This was our first airbnb stay. The apartment was in a great location and very clean. The host was very friendly and asked several times if there was anything we needed. Her father was also very kind and offered us some fresh fruits from the neighborhood. Great experience.

Vicky's apartment is in the perfect location for visiting the Acropolis and other sites. It's conveniently located near the metro station that will get you wherever you need to go. We loved having the pedestrian walkway right there to wander along after eating at all the different restaurants within minutes of the apartment. The apartment had everything we needed during our stay in Athens. Thanks Vicky!

Fabulous location on a quiet street in Thissio next to all the ancient sites. I loved walking out my door for a stroll on the Hill of Muses or Philopappos Hill. The apartment is a very comfortable one-bedroom with a fully stocked kitchen and nice bathroom, including a washing machine. The rooftop view of the Acropolis is just stunning. Βικη is a fun person and lovely host. Thanks for a wonderful stay -- I hope to return!

The ground level apartment is equipped like it was your home. TV in living room and bedroom. Functional kitchen. Laundry with clothes line on roof top terrace. Obvious pride of ownership with attention to details of comfort. Even the windows were crystal clean. Loved it. Quiet walkable neighborhood. Vicky was friendly and helpful. All the main attractions for sightseeing are walking distance and the metro is an 8 minute walk. It took us about 30 minutes to arrive here from the Port and it will be 50 minutes to the airport. Green line from Port to thessis for 1.40 euros. Then walk straight up the pedestrian walk and one turn to the right at the "rabbit" restaurant and her place is half way on the hill on right. It was hot in July but the overhead fan in the bedroom helped. I would say this was one of the top Airbnb I have stayed in. A perfect host who lives in an upper level apartment and was willing to help in anyway we needed. Friendly cats. Vicky was absolutely a perfect host.

Vicky was a very professional and generous host. The apartment had everything that you could want for a very comfortable stay. It's in a great location, the street is very quiet but close to cafes and the Acropolis. Providing a washing machine and all the extras in the kitchen made it feel like you had all the comforts of your own house.

Vicky and Akis' flat is cosy, well equipped and situated in the best posible neighbourhood of Athens: Thissio ~ right between Acropolis and the National Observatory. The flat's terrace is a delight! You can gaze the Parthenon from up there for as long as you like! Vicky and Akis themselves are probably the sweetest, caring hosts we have ever met through Airbnb! We would reccomend this flat with all our hearts to anyone who is interested in experiencing the loveliest side of Athens : ) Jan & Angeliki
