Great apartment off the beaten path

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 3 nights at this great apartment, just a short cab ride from all the attractions of Athens. The neighborhood is very quiet and there are many shops and great restaurants near by. We stayed with our two boys (7 &9) and found the apartment very comfortable. Will recommend to any friends heading to Athens.

Quiet break from bustle or Athens

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful apartment just outside the hustle and bustle of tourist areas of Athens. Nikos met us at our arrival. His knowledge of the area was spectacular and his recommendations for visiting and eating in Athens were great. Taxis to tourist areas were approximately €5 and all taxi drivers were kind and helpful. We left our car at the apartment and taxied everywhere. The apartment is near a square with many wonderful restaurants and bakeries. We walked to and from the square, but the walk uphill is steep. You can easily taxi back for €2-3. Nikos' restaurant recommendations were fabulous. We enjoyed Bakalogatos (I hope I spelled this correctly!) restaurant so much, we went twice....great house wine, food and wonderful service. Our apartment was clean. We enjoyed a night playing cards on the rooftop deck while seeing the Acropolis in the distance. We also enjoyed the apartment's balconies. We always felt safe! Thank you, Nikos! We will recommend your apartment to our family and friends who travel to Athens!

Lovely apartment, near to a vibrant area

  • 5 of 5

We had four nights in Nikos's apartment. Nikos was very friendly and helpful while we were booking and although he was away when we were there, the lady who looks after the apartment was also very kind, friendly and helpful. The apartment is at the top of a hill (Athens in very hilly) - so the shared rooftop terrace view is wonderful, especially the acropolis. The apartment is very clean, spacious and new looking, and very comfortable - we felt at home immediately. The beds were comfortable and the kids loved the lift! Both bedrooms and the living room have terraces with tables, and there is air con (not in double-bed room) for when it's just too hot to be outside! It is about 5 mins walk from shops and a further 5 mins from Kypseli square, where there is a long parade of pastry shops on one side (Kypseli) and many restaurants (Fokionos Negro) on the other. It is a vibrant, multi-cultural neighbourhood with kids playing football in the square, men playing dominos and women chatting. The restaurants sold good local food at prices similar to those we'd been paying in the Peloponnese, and there are a couple (closed in August) that are widely recommended. Look at for info on this area. Taxis into the centre are 4-8 euros, and everywhere, so for a family, it's cheaper and quicker than taking the bus or trolley-bus, both of which are only a couple of minutes walk away. I'd be very happy to stay here again.

Luxurious , safe and clean, not far from the centre.

  • 5 of 5

The property is very sturdy and clean with excellent security. All units in the building belong to the same owner, and there is a caretaker couple who will help you with Taxi ordering / wise advise on anything silly tourists can think off. Thank you! (I would put your names here but have no idea how to spell them) The flat is luxurious, and TV, air conditioning, washing machine, dishwasher , bathroom, it all just works. The doors and walls are all very solid, so not much noise about. The quality of the doors would seem sufficient for the national bank vault of a minor nation (5 x 1-inch bolts on a 18 lever lock) We stayed with 5 people, 1 more than the property advises, but the owner helped us out when some other arrangements fell through. Thanks Nikos! We did not find the place too cramped for the 5 of us. The balcony is lovely but pride of place is the roof terrace. We spent every evening there, looking over all of Athens, playing cards, chatting, drinking Metaxa...and generally relaxing with the kids - 3 teenagers. They feel I must mention the very good quality and speed of the WiFi connection - right. There is a small shop very near for essentials. A bus leaves very nearby but only comes every 20 minutes. It will take you to the centre or to the tube station. Make sure you have a pile of bus tickets in stock (tickets are valid on ALL public transport for 90 minutes) Getting back with the bus should be easy but we never mastered it or rather when you get to one of the nearby metro's the taxi only costs 4 Euro's so we could not be bothered to try too hard. 10 minutes walk is a lovely area to go out from the main square in Kipseli. Lots of food, anything from snack bar to gourmet, and lots of nightlife. No chance to get bored, though there is the walk 10 minutes back to the flat uphill afterwards. I would advise this place to any of my friends and family, in fact if we are ever back in Athens I think I will just give Nikos a ring and save myself a lot of time.

About Nikos Karipidis

Hi, I am Nikos

I was born in Athens and I have lived my whole life in this city apart of short periods when I lived in several European cities.

I have studied economics in the Kapodistriakon University of Athens.

I am married to Kiriaki and we have two sons, Alex & Mario, both attending University studies in Electronic and in Mechanical Engineering.

Nikos Karipidis purchased this apartment in 2010

Guestbook comments from the manager

Amazing Apartment, Amazing Customer Service, Amazing View of Athens (you can see the Mediterranean Sea). The apartment and its appliances are new and spotless and the customer service is flawless.

Nikos gave us the best customer service out of the 3 airbnb reservations we had. He has arranged and prepared the apartment specifically for tourists and he thought of everything. Everything convenient you'd have in your home, Nikos has put here and organized so well we found everything immediately without having to search cupboards or drawers. (cotton swabs, bottle openers, silverware, dishes, etc...)

We were welcomed warmly and had everything explained to us.

It really is more than I expected and made our stay so much better. Having a place like this to wake up in and come home to when you're tired is really worth it.

Neat, Clean, open spaced, beautiful balconies, fast internet, endless hot water, lots of drawers and huge closet space, clean floors, brand new Air Conditioners, safe and secure heavy door, telecom to downstairs floor, elevator, and the list goes on and on.

You won't be disappointed.

Our title 'Amazing View' gives literaly the picture of this property.

The (30kms range) views from the 24h accessible terrace is breathtaking.

It's more like flying over the city in a helicopter.

Acropolis, Piraeus harbour, the sea of Saronic Gulf and the islands Aegina and Salamina are just a few of the visible sights.

The apartment located at the sides of the mot central hill of Athens.

The Attica region

The mainland of Greece forms the southernmost part of the Balkan peninsula, in the north also including parts of the historical regions of Macedonia and Thrace, further to the south narrowing into a 'Greek peninsula' in its own right, including historical Epirus, Thessaly, Boeotia and Attica, and concluding in the separate peninsula of Peloponnese, comprising the historical territories Sparta, Corinth and Argos, all surrounding the peninsula's heartland of Arcadia.

As for Attica, the region is incredibly famous and unique for its breathtaking monuments and museums. A region with great history due to also being the birthplace of the famous philosophers Aristotelis, Sokratis, Aristofanis etc.

So why not come and explore the region for yourself !

The Athens / Nea Kipseli area

The location is 'Nea Kipseli', part of the center circle, which means that if you enjoy walking you'll need about 20 minutes to Omonoia square and through that to Plaka, the old town, the Ancient Market, the Acropolis and lots of other 'must see' monuments.

On the other hand, if you are the type of public transportation, you'll find several different bus lines in 100-150 meters range around the flat, taking to all main points of the city, ex. time by bus to Omonoia square 5-6', Syntagma 10', Mesogion ave 5-6', Acropolis (south side) in 12' etc.

If you are after all a practical type, you'll realize that you can have a call-taxi waiting for you right outside your door and take you to all places mentioned above before you know it, with only a few euros. Taxis are exceptionally cheap in Greece (Omonoia 4 eur., Plaka 6 eur, Acropolis 7 eur, etc).

In a range of 100m there are pharmacy, super market, grocery, bakery, butcher shop, tobacco, food take away, you name it.

As for the issue of safety, you can ask the little children playing out in the street.

In 5 minutes walk, about 300m there is the famous Fokionos Negri street, full of restaurants, coffee shops, pubs, clubs and any kind of night amusement.
