The space
The only Airbnb flat in Athens which has a telescope for viewing the famous sights...:)
Ideal for one person/couple/ 2 friends/ 3 people who want a quiet compact studio flat with an amazing view in the centre of Athens.
It has a double bed ( for a couple or single traveller) which has a new mattress from February 2020.
An extra single fold out bed & mattress can be provided for a 3rd person or if two friends want to stay in the flat but not share the double bed- please inquire. If 2 friends want to stay the price quoted is until 2 people but please inform me when making the reservation. If 3 people are coming please make the reservation for 3 people ( there is an 10€ per night surcharge above the price quoted).
AC can be used to heat or cool house. Convector heater and electric blanket also provided in winter. Fan can be used to cool flat.
Free internet.
32 inch Smart TV/Netflix.
Washing machine in house -(laundry detergent not included).
There is an intercom if you order food.
Alluminium shutters to stop light coming in. Extra black out curtain available in flat.
There are some stairs leading up to the elevator to take you up to the 6th floor and a small flight of stairs (with a low ceiling) which will lead you to the 7th floor ( roof) where the house is!

At the top of the stairs before you use your 2nd key to open the door of the roof of the building there is a surveillance camera ( see photos). This is not inside the Airbnb house.

HOUSE IS NOT SUITABLE FOR GUESTS WITH DISABILITIES

HEIGHT OF BATHROOM & KITCHEN APPROXIMATELY 1.78cm

SMART PHONE NEEDED TO RECEIVE CHECK IN INSTRUCTIONS.

Photo of ID ( If a European one) /passport needs to be provided with 48 hours of reservation being made.

For Greeks or residents with a social security number - this AFM needs to be provided too) needs to be provided either via the Airbnb message thread or through an application on a smart phone prior to check in instructions being sent.

This needs to be done within 48H after the reservation has been made. This is a house rule. I realise that in countries like the US guests it is against the law to ask for this in case of identity theft. However, in many countries in Europe we are required to have passport information for our tax declaration and in order to avoid third party bookings.

Check out before 11am


5 minute walk to Stathmos Larissis metro station ( red line). In 3/4 stops you reach the Akropolis, Monistiraki or parliament for example.
