Description - Apartment

Two separate rooms (one with twin beds and one with a double bed) and a shared bathroom in a 7 floor block of flats in the center of Athens, available for rent. The price here refers to one room with the two (twin) single beds.
~In the appartment there is a (shared) kitchen, a (shared) bathroom and a hall. There is a washing machine available. You can cook in the kitchen or prepare your breakfast.

~The main advantage of staying here is that it is located in a strategic point. You can reach by foot all the main sightseeings of Athens within 20-45 minutes!.... Also the key subway station of Athens (Omonoia square) it is just 2 minutes walk from the gate of the building!... It's a very simple yet clean appartment in an area that, to be honest, it is considered not exactly the best or the safest of Athens. You can google "Omonoia square" for more information on the matter and if you still are interested email me to tell you more details about the advantages and disadvantages of the area!

~30 seconds walk to the urban bus terminal (No. 051) that heads to the Kiffisos Coach Terminal (KTEL), from where you can catch busses departing for Peloponessus, Epirus & North Greece -Thessaloniki etc! Very convenient!)
~1 minute walk to the National Theater of Athens.
~2 minutes walk to Omonoia Square (Subway to everywhere in Athens, half an hour to Pireaus, Half an hour to Kifissia, One hour to the airport).
~10 minutes to kerameikos ancient greek cemetery (famous marble reliefs there).
~15 minutes on foot to the national Archaeological Museum of Athens.
~20 minutes on foot to Monastiraki or/and Syntagma Square, and to the Railway (train) station to (Stathmos Larissis). Convenient for Eurail/Interail users!
~Half an hour on foot to Plaka, Akropolis , the National Garden & Zappeion.
~45 minutes on foot to Panathinaikon Stadium & to the New Acropolis Museum.
~One hour walk up to the Lycabettus Hill & Saint George's church to enjoy the panorama of the cities (both Athens & Pireaus), especially suggested in late evening/sunset. Or you can take the funicular up to the top (suggested).

~Okay, I guess you have heard that the center of Athens is not one of the safest areas of the country, and I must admit that unfortunately this is true! Albeit, there are some small secrets & if you follow my advises you will have a nice stay in the infamous city center!

The area (Omonoia square) & Metaxourgeio it is located in the heart of Athens and therefore from here you can have access to Athens main sightseings.
There are some disadvantages though that you have to take into consideration before booking.
The area is not one of the safest areas of the city.
The main reason for this situation are not the lots of immigrants from asia and africa as many suggest, but the drug addicted people. I dont know why they gather in the area. It is not that they are dangerous and that attack people. I live here from 1983 and never was attacked or robbed in the street. However to see them while taking the drugs or sleeping outside the building in the streets is uncomfortable and stressing if you are not used to this "spectacle"!... There are also alcoholic or homeless people settling in front of closed shop gates, some begging for money, and homeless people wandering around... So having tell you all this, its up to you if you want or not to live here for a few days!... Actually the only ugly part might be these 200 meters from Zinonos street to Omonia Square (where the metro subway station is), just a couple of minutes walk. My advices are not to bear jewelry (esp. gold), not to wear too fancy clothes, not to hold cameras and to walk fast till to reach the Omonia square. Past Omonia square the area is safe. ... Also it is suggested not to return home after getting dark, not that it is unsafe but again because of the drug addicted. And dont think that they are always outside the house, some times they are and some times not. I would say that if you are not used or having visited of such areas, better chose another lodging in a better looking area. If you are used or you dont care, then this is the place for you. And the price is very cheap because for the bad aesthetic of the streets not for any other reason! ... I would say that for groups of students, friends, it's OK. For families and solo women traveller, it depends upon you !... Please contact me for any further information BEFORE booking!
