Overview

About the property

Super comfy, fully equipped studio apartment

This first-floor, one-bedroom studio apartment was totally renovated in September 2016 and can easily accommodate two persons. It has a fully equipped kitchen and a comfortable bathroom, with a small oasis of a balcony overlooking the narrow street. The bedroom has a double bed and a built-in wardrobe. An extra single bed is available to an additional third person if necessary.

The apartment has fast wifi, air conditioning, a washing machine, TV and a DVD player along with a big collection of movies to choose from.

The apartment is located in Akadimia Platonos, or Plato’s Academy, a quiet middle class neighbourhood located just 3 km (2 miles) west-northwest of downtown Athens and only ten minutes walk from the capital’s hottest and most youthful place to be at night: Gazi.

The area is named after Plato's Academy, simply because the ancient Greek philosopher founded his famous School here 2,400 years ago. A modern-day archaeological park is the only reminder of antiquity’s prestigious academic institution, just two minutes walk from the apartment.

Super markets, restaurants, lively cafes, convenient stores, dance schools, gyms are all located in a short walk’s distance.

The area is served by three bus lines, with stops five minutes away from the building. If you don’t mind a 10-15 minute walk, there are three metro stations all one km away from the doorstep: Keramikos, Metaxourgio and Larissa Train Station.

About Elias

Citizen of the world, global traveler, social geek, story teller. All in all a great guy to be with and have a beer or talk politics, art and culture, the state of the world we live in, etc. I love knowing new people and making new friends. I also love animals. Especially Baloo, my dog. And I love my city! Ask me and you get me as a bonus guide!

Elias purchased this apartment in 1980

Why Elias chose Athens

Because it gives a taste of good old Athens combined with a fresh wave of the city's most creative people who have moved in the neighborhood in recent years. The studio apartment is perfectly situated in walking distance from the city center.

What makes this apartment unique

Residential area next to the city center. Totally renovated, modern and comfortable apartment. Great neighbors!

Great Apartment, Great Host

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was located about a 20 minute walk from Keramikos (Metro station) where there are at least 15+ coffee shops and restaurants - great for an evening out. Elias was happy to accommodate our arrival and departure times and offered to be our tour guide. The apartment was perfect for a couple. It had a decent sized kitchen, washing facilities, and great bedroom on a quiet street. Strongly recommend staying here if you are interested in exploring Athens.
