We stayed here for a month and we loved it. It's in a great location, very close to grocery stores, train station, bakery, some restaurants etc. You can even walk to the Acropolis, and Ancient Agora and other main sights in the city center. We love the apartment because of it's rustic/modern style, the beautiful bedroom and the nice kitchen with a lot of utensils for cooking complete meals. We recommend this place and would come back in a future time. Thank you Konstantino for always being very responsive and helpful with everything we needed.

Great location for Athens. An easy walk to shops, restaurants, tourist spots etc. Our family of four stayed for four nights and we were very comfortable. Konstantinos is an excellent host, great communication and he was always available to us if we needed assistance or suggestions for spending our time in Athens.

I really liked Konstatinos s apartment! It's amazing, well located, quiet neighborhood. When you set the address on gps, it's easy to find the street, but the door of the apartment is faced to the church at beside. On my first day, I got off at Kerameikos station, because I didn't want to change line on subway; but, later, I figured out that Petralona is easier. Konstantinos was very kind and he was always available if I needed anything. When I come back to Athens, I'll stay there again, definitely !

Konstantinos is a great host: he was always ready to give me tips on local restaurants, cafes and city hotspots which made my stay in Athens a great experience. The apartment has all you need for short and long stays and is only a couple of metro stops away from the city center. Very good deal for what he charges!

The house was very nice with everything you need. It's 2 metro stations away from Monasteraki. Konstantinos was very hospitable. He advised us some nice local places to go and they were all great. We recommend it!!
