Interaction with guests

I'm an Athens native so I know the city like the back of my hand. I can help you find anything from neat little corners and historic cafes in old Athens to nice beaches, good restaurants and night life.

I'm a native speaker of both English and Greek (+ un peu de Francais) so I can help in many ways. I'm also very discreet and will not be in your way at all unless you ask for my help.

I know Greece very well as I used to manage properties in Santorini, Laconia and Thessaloniki, and can help you plan the rest of your trip and save on expenses.

I'm available online more or less around the clock to help with anything you might wish (travel arrangements, taxi pickups etc). It's my pleasure to help, don't hesitate to contact me at any time.

Airport pickup and trips along the coastline to Sounio/Kalyvia and other places can be arranged.

Check in/out times can be very flexible subject to availablity.

The neighbourhood

The Apt. is situated at the crossroads of Plaka and Syntagma. On one side you have ancient ruins and temples on quiet pedestrian streets leading to the Acropolis, on the other the bustling city center, with many shops, restaurants and night life as well as easy access to the airport, Piraeus and pretty much everywhere else.

Plaka, by far the nicest neighborhood in all of Athens, is mostly comprised of Neoclassical mansions and pedestrian streets with plazas and ancient ruins interspersed throughout.

The area around Syntagma is very tourist oriented with many shops, restaurants, bars, hotels and travel agencies. Shopping is also very convenient as Athens' premiere shopping street (Ermou) is only 50m away. A short downhill walk from there and you hit "Monastiraki", Athens' major tourist oriented market. From there it's a short walk to Psiri, Thiseio or Keramikos.. the areas where Greeks go to relax and have fun at night.

Getting around

Syntagma square, 150m away, is the absolute Center of Athens, tram, bus and Metro service is available.

Easy and affordable access to the airport and port and even the regional bus station (KTEL).

You can also just walk out the front door and hail a cab on the street 24h/7d year round.

Most car rental companies have offices on nearby Syggrou avenue, just a 5 min walk. For a one day trip, you can pick-up and drop off right there, never having to worry about parking in Athens.

Other things to note

Early check-in/Late check-out possible depending on availability.

I've stayed at many airbnb places with great hosts in the past but Phaidon was probably the first host to exceed my expectation by going above and beyond with his communications. First of all, we arrived late for check-in but Phaidon was very understanding and accommodating. After check-in, he spent a good amount of time walking us through all the sites and neighborhoods worth visiting in the city. He had maps and lists printed out for us to use throughout our stay PLUS he sent web links via messenger which included many more recommendations with his personal comments. Because of Phaidon's recommendations, we ended up visiting really neat and interesting places inside and outside of Athens. Even his restaurant recommendations were great and I'm known to be a picky eater! As for the apartment, it's exactly like the pictures posted on the listing - very clean, cozy, and located in one of the best areas! Walking distance to Syntagma station, Plaka, Ermou shopping street, Acropolis museum etc…Has all the amenities you need for a comfortable stay and even though it's close to Syntagma square, the building and the neighbors are quiet which is always a plus. On my last night, I accidentally broke something in the apartment and Phaidon was very understanding about it which I really appreciate. I really couldn't have asked for more from Pahidon and I would definitely recommend his place to anyone visiting Athens!

Our stay at Phaidon's place was AMAZING!! Communication was great he even helped us setup airport pick-up with Ms. Sofia which made it a lot easier. The house is super clean & the size is just perfect for me & my wife, the location is really close to Syntagma Square & Plaka. It's just so perfect & we can't wait to go back again!

Phaidon's place was a perfect place to stay in Athens. The location was very convenient as it was walking distance to all the major attractions/neighborhoods (Syntagma, Plaka, Monastiraki, Acropolis, Thissio, etc. ) and shopping (Adrianou St. and Ermou St.!). We walked everywhere from the apartment. Phaidon was always prompt in responding to my e-mails and messages. He is so rich in knowledge about Athens and its surroundings. Do not hesitate to ask him for recommendations about restaurants, day trips, shopping, transportation, etc. He recommended us to his friend Ms. Sofia, who took us to Lake Vouliagmeni and Cape Sounion for an affordable price. She took us to a small restaurant by the beach where we ate amazing fresh seafood. We were four people, and even though the apartment was small, we had a comfortable stay. I would come back to his apartment. I highly recommend Phaidon's place.

Amazing location, all the main sights in Athens were within walking distance, and lots of restaurants around the apartment. Phaidon was very communicative and very helpful and provided great suggestions. I'm very sensitive to noise, and while you can still hear some street traffic, it was quiet at night and I slept well. This is a great apartment for a short visit to Athens. Sofia, who Phaidon helped arrange to pick us up from the airport, was wonderful as well.

We felt really comfortable and good in Phaidon's place. It was everything perfect, really clean and cozy - we had everything we needed all the interesting information to visit the city. Phaidon gave to us a lot of typical greek places to eat, drink, and visit he has been the ideal host. I would recommend this place to everyone

Very central location, very clean and functional. I was there in winter so the nearby avenue with much car traffic did not bother me, but it may be a slight disadvantage in summer time if you like to sleep with open windows. Phaidon has been a wonderful host, very kind, and helpful.

I'm a Greek born, mostly American educated Musician. Other than Greece, I've lived in the US, Thailand, Myanmar and Belgium. I like trekking and camping as well as computers and technology. Athens is my hometown and I know the country like the back of my palm. I'm open to hang out and show you around Athens and I can help you plan your stay in Greece to make it both less "touristy" and much cheaper.
