2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 7
Athens, Attica
Unique 145m2 top floor flat in listed building in Plaka with 2 large verandas & stunning view of the Acropolis. Very quiet and bright. 2 B/R with A/C, living-room with A/C, exceptionally spacious kitchen/dining room. Sleeps 1-8. 200m from Syntagma metro station, buses & tram.

The top floor of a 1932 renovated building, accessed by an elevator. Ideal place for couples, families, or friends, who are after a real 'home' in Plaka, the historical neighborhood of Athens!

The flat has the feeling and the character of a real Athenian home rather than a super modern and polished rent out place found all over the place. It has two bedrooms; one with a king size bed (180X200) and another with two single beds (110X200 and 90X200). An extra fold up bed, can fit in bedroom 2 upon request. There is also, a double sofa bed (140X190)...

Lovely, spacious apartment with wonderful terrace to sit out on and enjoy the weather and the view. Easy walking to sites, shops and restaurants. Just be careful of the furniture - we inadvertently left a wet coaster and are having to pay for antique repair....More

Huge verandas on both sides- Pure pleasure to sip coffee in the morning sun, then wine in the evening gazing at THE ACROPOLIS with changing sunset! Enjoyed seeing their plants and what was blooming. The apartment was very large, the hallway alone was the size...More

I am very happy you appreciated the apartment and enjoyed your stay. I am really sorry about the noise but the construction at the neighboring house is something I could not have predicted. I think you were rather unlucky because already now the works are...More
