About the property

Amazing penthouse in Plaka with private balconies & roof top terrace. Views!

We call this apartment PL5.

PL5 is a penthouse apartment, located in the heart of Plaka, the most desirable inner city address in Athens. The apartment has a large balcony and its own roof top terrace. You can enjoy wonderful views of the Acropolis, Plaka and Athens from the balcony or the terrace.

The apartment has 3 bedrooms with king size beds that can be set up as singles and a double sofa bed in the large living room. It also has a large living room / dining room, a fully equipped kitchen, one full bathroom and a second toilet.

It offers free WiFi, flat TV, AC and lots of closet space. It has a washing machine and a dryer.

It is three minutes away from Syntagma Metro Station, direct line to the airport.

If you choose to stay in PL5 you will find yourself in the heart of historical Athens and within short walking distance to all archeological sites, museums and galleries, as well as the commercial pedestrian zone of Ermou and the central flea market. 

Numerous restaurants, tavernas and bars to cater all tastes. Organic food markets, fruit and vegetable stalls and all kinds of markets are located around PL5.

You should be aware that PL5 is in a quiet, residential building and late night noise is not tolerated by the neighbours.  If you are a group looking to party, this is not the apartment for you.  We can assist with places less residential if you require.

Once you get to the apartment, we will be there to meet you and take you on a short tour of the neighbourhood so you can get your bearings.

We also provide our Guests with our own Locals Guide. It describes and shows you how to get to some of our favourite local hidden shops, cafes, museums and galleries. On the guide we have included the Co-ordinates which are displayed on an English worded map that we also provide. The street signs in Athens are all in Greek and English, which means that with the "Locals Guide" and the map you can easily explore all of inner city Athens and find great places that few will.

This must be the best place to stay in Athens. The rooftop terrace with its view of the Acropolis was a dream. Lovely apartment. Bakery for breakfast provisions and small supermarket both just round the corner. I recommend booking the taxi from the airport, the driver was waiting for us and took us directly to the apartment.

Fantastic Plaka Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful spacious apartment right in the heart of historic Plaka. Walking distance from all the major sights and what must be the best view in Athens from a spectacular roof terrace.

From start to finish the whole team were super easy to deal with and very responsive. The pictures of the apartment don't really do it justice - from the comfortable furnishings to the funky artwork it is a really great place to stay.

Just steps from numerous restaurants and shopping opportunities the apartment is right in the middle of Athens and a great place to base yourself if you want to get to know this historic city.

What a view 😍

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location; quick walk to Acropolis, syngama square etc. Nice quiet residential area but easy access to fab bars & restaurants. Absolutely loved it here. Apartment is spacious & as described. Roof garden has just the best view. Service was excellent - response to emails prompt, Michalis was waiting for us at the airport, Yannis met us at the apartment to to show us around & give us tips on the area. Fantastic experience. Highly recommend 😊

Amazing view! Large updated kitchen perfect for a family. And central, walking distance to all the main sights near the Acropolis. And Manolis was incredibly helpful, even printing out and delivering our boarding passes for our flight out!

Well located; great views

  • 5 of 5

Apartment has great views of the Acropolis and is very well located near a less touristy part of the Plaka. The rental agency staff was also very helpful when we mistakenly locked a bag in the apartment as we were leaving. Overall a great choice.
