I still remember the feeling of excitement when one of my friends came to visit for a week and used our little Plaka apartment back in summer 2006! I dare say he was our first guest for we have since been offering our own selected accommodation and welcoming guests with the very same feeling of excitement and anticipation!
We are a small group of 3; yet always around to answer your questions, provide you with going out suggestions and recommend activities and places to visit. We will meet you upon arrival and when you need assistance we are here to help.
Upon request we can organize a weekly cleaning service, excursions, airport transfers and a private taxi service.
We look forward to welcoming you in our beautiful city!

Guestbook comments from the manager
Perfectly situated by Athens Cathedral (which means ANYone can point you home if you're lost), the flat's only a few blocks from Syntagma subway station OR Plaka OR the Acropolis OR the shopping district OR Monastiraki flea market or basically ANYthing you will want to see.
The courtyard next door has restaurants (a few are open until late so you can have treats under the stars and then be home in seconds!) plus a big Starbucks with plenty of maps and guidebooks. There's a nearby chemists, ATM, and grocery, so it's easy to get anything - or anywhere - you want.
It's light and airy, painted and decorated VERY elegantly, and has high ceilings so we never felt cramped. The kitchenette has basic gear and a club fridge, the living room is comfy with a nice foldout couch and TV. The bedroom is charming and has a large armoire - PLUS the bed isn't rock-hard (like most Greek beds, for some unknowable reason), with new, pretty linens. The bathroom is very small, which is typical of Greece, but it's spotless (just like the rest of the apartment - clean clean clean!) and pretty, with modern fixtures, and a WASHER!
Two things I wasn't expecting:
The windows open over a non-decorative atrium between our building and the next, so you can't see the street - but you get plenty of light and air anyway, and we were only home to sleep, so who cared?
Also, the building is mixed-use with residences and offices - which is odd to an American - but we only ever saw 1 or 2 other people the entire week which was great. Total privacy!
I am planning a return trip and will definitely be staying here - the price is lower than any decent hotel in town, you get a washer, and all you miss is being surrounded by loud, dumb tourists. Paris, the owner, is professional and personable - very nice to deal with and helpful.
Lastly - if you stay here, please be nice to the street dog who sleeps on the lobby doormat. He is very sweet but usually thirsty. And tell him I'll see him soon! :)
