About Owner

Friendly & outgoing! Love traveling, meeting new people, listening to music and making everything possible to ensure that anyone who visits Athens has a great time!

I have an international career & hosting for me is not a business. It's about becoming part of your great Athens experience so that you will return back to Athens or tell you fiends to visit - in that way I feel that I am giving something back to my city!

Please feel free to contact me in case you have any questions whatsoever!

Owner purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Owner chose Athens

Great building, great location!

It is the oldest district in Athens with outstanding scenery. The moment you start walking on its paved narrow lanes you get the feeling that you travel back in time. Beautiful houses with neoclassic colors, well preserved gardens, the elegance and the atmosphere of the whole area. If you decide to walk around the area, make sure you have a map, because Plaka is like a labyrinth and you will probably get lost in its lanes. You will find souvenir shops in the central street of the district Adrianos Str., as well as in other streets.

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

Amazing location couldnt be any better , convenient. The bed is a bit small for 2 large people, perfect for a couple who want less room. The price was fair and very reasonable and we are happy we stayed there as it was in thr centre of all what we looked for. would definitely recommend it.

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.

good apartment, excellent location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was small, particularly the bathroom as described on the VRBO posting -- no surprises. However, it was quite suitable for a week-long holiday with a queen size bed and small kitchen. The apartment was clean and having the washing machine was very helpful. The location could not be more convenient. The metro stop for the direct airport train was only a few minutes walk away. Attractions like the Acropolis and the agora were also within 10 or 15 minutes walking and the Plaka neighborhood around the apartment had many good cafes and shops. We would definitely use this place again if we return to Athens.

Perfect apartment. Perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was lovely and the location perfect. It's a very comfortable space, with a little kitchen that I used for cooking breakfast. I could easily walk to all the sights and was right in the heart of the city center for shopping and eating. . As far as restaurants, I highly recommend Tzitzikas kai Mermigas and Athinaikon Restaurant. It was easy to contact Paris and Thalia when I needed help. A great week.

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

This was a very clean and safe apartment with a perfect location!The Parliament Square is a 5 minute walk to the right from the apartment and if you come out of the apartment and turn left it is only a 5 minute walk to the quaint flea market and Ancient Agora! The classical Plaka area of the city is the most warm and inviting area in all of Athens buzzing with energy and excitement! I was pleasantly surprised with the close proximity of all the historical sights.The grocery store is directly behind the building that is directly in front of the apartment building.Paris was very helpful and everything was perfect.This was the perfect home base for our 6 day adventure!Thank you Paris!We look forward to returning!
