About Owner

I still remember the feeling of excitement when one of my friends came to visit Athens for a week and used our Plaka apartment back in summer 2006! He enjoyed it so much and we have since been offering our accommodation and welcoming guests with the very same feeling of excitement and anticipation!

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!

Best Regards,

Paris

Owner purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Owner chose Central Athens

Great building, great location!

What makes this apartment unique

Location, location, location! Look up the area Plaka in Athens guides and I think you will agree!

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! :)

Excellent Plaka Apt

  • 5 of 5

Our experience at this Plaka flat was excellent! The location is in the center of all the activity in Athens just as described. We really felt immersed into the city. The apartment was very comfortable, but the shower was narrow. The owners were very accomadating and pleasant to work with.

Amazing location for Athens Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I spent a week in this flat during our Christmas break. The location is excellent, you can walk to all major attractions and museums and is perfect for exploring the nigthlife, with many restaurants and bars in the area! The flat was clean and well equiped and our host very welcoming, would definitelly recommend!

Just ok.

  • 2 of 5

The photos posted are not really a good description of this place. The pictures make it look much better than what it is: the place feels small, dark and not inviting. Kitchen and bathroom are really tiny. The shower does not work properly. The advantages to this apartment: building is pretty, well kept and safe. The apartment was clean, the location is great.

Owner's Response: Dear Natalia, Thank you for your review. I am glad you enjoyed the location and safety of the apartment and unfortunately there is nothing we can do about apartment size - this is the reason that size is listed in the advert (and the apartment is priced accordingly); yet most guests are pretty happy. I am also sorry that the apartment did not meet your personal taste - the photos are however accurate. As a final note I should say that the apartment is currently undergoing renovation and will offer upgraded new features (such as new kitchen, bookcase, dinning table and new shower) from 31/1/2015 onwards. Photos will also change at the end of January and will display the apartment after its renovation. Thanks again, PT

Nice Plaka Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Spent 20 days in October 2013 in this quiet Plaka apartment. We initially had hoped to book the Kolonaki apartment, but since it was not available for the time period we needed, we booked this apartment instead. We found the apartment to be very nice and clean. Although the kitchen and bathroom were very small, it was still functional. We basically used the kitchen only to make coffee and tea or the occasional breakfast. The location is very convenient - close to all sites; Acropolis, Agora, Monastiraki, Syntagma Square etc.. Shopping and Restaurants are all around the corner and Metro and bus is just couple minutes away. The building is safe and quiet.

The owner Mr. Paris is very pleasant to work with and willing to help in any way. On the day of our departure, we had locked ourselves in the hallway in the very early hours of the morning, and he very kindly drove all the way from his own home to come to our rescue!

We had a very good stay and would definitely recommend the apartment.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here and were very happy with our choice. It was very honestly represented, and there were no disappointments. The apartment had all we needed and was very comfortable for the 2 of us. It was clean, and - while small -perfectly adequate. The location was outstanding and very convenient for shopping, sightseeing, and generally being within walking distance of what we wanted to see. The owner was very communicative and pleasant to deal with. Perhaps the only caveat is that the kitchen is fairly limited, and it would be challenging to do any real cooking or food preparation in it. The refrigerator is quite small, and the hotplate for cooking rather small. However, it completely met our needs and we would certainly stay there again.
