View over the Ancient Agora and beyond from the 4th floor balcony

Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4

Key Info
  • Great for children of all ages 5
  • Car not necessary
  • Air conditioning
  • Some pets are welcome - please contact the owner

An apartment in a location to dream about - and our all-inclusive prices are very competitive.

There are superb views over the nearby Ancient Agora and its surroundings, including the Acropolis and Filopappou Hill. After climbing the 63 stairs - sorry, there's no lift - relax and take in the view from the 3rd floor balcony. There's an air-conditioned living room with a double bed-settee, a tiny kitchen with full sized cooker and refrigerator, and a cloakroom/WC. Upstairs is a double bedroom, again air-conditioned, a full bathroom, and another balcony with even more impressive views. Wi-fi is provided free of charge.

All of the photographs included in this listing were taken within 300 metres of the apartment, that's to say no more than 2 or 3 minutes walk.

The only disadvantage of staying right in the historical centre is that there can sometimes be some late night noise, especially at weekends.

The Attica region

You'll be just seconds away from a huge range of places to eat and drink. Best of all, you'll be only a few minutes walk away from the Ancient Agora, the ancient Kerameikos cemetery, the Plaka tourist district at the foot of the Acropolis, the famous Monastiraki Flea Market, and the Ermou Street shops. The Acropolis itself is just ten minutes walk away along one of many local traffic-free roads.

No more than 20 metres from the apartment you can jump on the Athens tour buses or the little motor train that runs around the narrow Plaka streets.

There's a lively night life for those who want it, either in the small clubs in the immediate Psiri neighbourhood, or in the bigger clubs 10 minutes walk away in Gazi.

Only 200 metres away is Thiseio metro station with direct access to Piraeus port. Around 250 metres in the other direction is Monastiraki metro station with direct access to the airport.

Directly across the road from the apartment is the exclusive O&B Boutique Hotel. Their web site has links to lots of useful information about local places of interest.

We can help you find your way to other places you might want to visit whist staying in Athens, for example famous archaeological sites such as Delphi, Mycenae, Epidavros, and Sounio, or perhaps day trips to the local islands.

If you're heading elsewhere in Greece before or after your stay in Athens, we're ready to help you plan your travels.

All in all, we promise you a truly memorable Greek experience.

"Very convenient"

The apartment building looks a bit shady outside but once you are in the apartment inside is fine. Comfortable rooms and nice view from both balconies. The location is perfect for sightseeing and movi… More

"Accoglienza perfetta"

Posizione centrale, a pochi passi dall'Agora, dal Kerameikos e dall'Acropoli e vicino alle fermate della metropolitana di Thissio e Monastiraki. L'appartamento è su due livelli. Al ter… More

Thanks, Simona, for writing such a detailed review. We know that we need to do some work on the kitchen. We're glad everything else worked out well for you.

"Perfect for our need. Owner went out of his way to please us."

The 2 level apartment with 2 balconies was perfect for us. We loved sitting on the balcony and viewing the lighted Acropolis. Unit was very clean, WIFI worked very well and air conditioning very cool.… More

Saundra and company were a new challenge for us - very short stay, long distance transfers, severely delayed incoming flight, just to mention a few. We take it as a huge compliment that they were happy with the way we responded to their needs and that they would be happy to return.

"Great Place!"

Just as all the reviewers below have written it's a wonderful apartment with a large downstairs lounge with dining table, two balconies with a view of the acropolis and upstairs bedroom and bathr… More

Thanks, Sefi, for your endorsement of what has already been written and for your other observations. We would just like to comment that the kitchen in indeed tiny so teamwork in that area is impossible! However, other guests have told us they successfully produced full meals during their stays.

"Location location location"

We were a bit skeptical when we booked this apartment as we had to pay upfront and relied on few reviews. We decided to book this place as the apartment described was close to all the major sightseein… More

We would like to apologise to Yee and her family on two counts. The kettle is new - it should have worked - we'll get another new one straight away. The weekend music is also new. One previous guest told us about some late night music but we thought that it had been a one-off private party in a nearby apartment. We're very glad to hear that it didn't spoil your stay. If we can't get it stopped we'll give it a mention on our listing just in case someone staying in the historical centre wants to find peace and quiet. Thank you Yee for taking the time to let us have such detailed comments. We haven't been renting the apartment for very long and, as you rightly point out, we do need a few more reviews like yours to reassure other travellers that we will look after them.

"Great location and beautiful view"

We were a bit dubious about staying in the busy center of Athens, but the place definitely exceeded our expectations. It is spacious and clean and offered everything we needed.We especially loved sitt… More

Thanks for your very kind comments, Bill and Darlene. I think even the central Athens car parking worked out okay for you, exceeding our own local expectations! It's just a shame that your special Nemea wine that you found on your travels didn't make it back home, but where better to drink an excellent Greek wine than overlooking floodlit ancient Athens from the apartment balcony?

"Comfortable, convenient and strategic located."

The apartment was comfortable, with all the necessary facilities. It was conveniently located to public transports, shops and restaurants. Strategically located because most of the places of interest … More

We look forward to welcoming you back one day!

"Fantastic views, perfect location!"

We could not have picked a better place to stay! The apartment was clean, well kept and provided plenty of space for my husband and I. The views from both balconies and large windows were beautiful an… More

Thanks, Ashley, for taking the time to post your review. We hope we may see you again one day.

"Great Location, Great Appartment, Fantastic Views"

This appartment was very nice, having two floors and two balconies, both with unreal views of the Temple of Haephaestus and the Athens Acropolis. The location was better than we could have asked for, … More

Thanks, Luke, for your very kind comments and thanks also to you and your friends for taking care of the apartment. It was a real pleasure to help you enjoy your time in our special city.

My partner and I were doing 4 days in athens as part of our travelling around Europe and like the freedom of staying in apartments over hotels.We stumbled across this little gem. A huge apartment in … More
