Lovely, modern, open space layout ... ideally located for down town convenience. Ano Petralona is a local, friendly neighborhood within Athens, i.e. not touristy but still with easy access to historic Athens (one station away). Great access to public transport, both metro station Petralona & bus/trolley #15, within 100m. Enjoy a short walk (15-20 min) to historic Athens, trekking through Philoppapou Hill up the road.
Great for short term or longer term stays. Safe family owned building.
This 1 bedroom Athens apartment in Ano Petralona (center Athens), is on 2nd floor in family owned building Ano Petralona. LOTS of light. It is fully furnished, light wood floors, balcony, double glazed windows, eco-gas fireplace (city-gas). 2 ACs, satellite TV (access to European stations), washing machine, fully equipped kitchen. Bedsheets and towels provided. Free WIFI. Building construction: 1967, last extensive apartment renovation: 2011, touched-up yearly to keep it fresh and neat.
Comfortably fits 2, but does accommodate 4 for short term stays if extra guests don't mind a double sofa bed in the living room. The double glazed windows makes for a comfortable stay.
Excellent location near public transport. Ideally located for down town convenience. Local Greek neighborhood feel, recently gentrified in recent years. A younger scene beginning to appear with organic shops, interesting bars and restaurants, open air art cinema only 5 minutes away (Troon Street & Platea Mercuri). with all amenities near by. Gazi (cool cafes, clubs and restaurant scene, surrounds the old Athens gasworks, which is an industrial museum and exhibition space ) is also 15 min walk away.

I run a graphic agency "White Maze", and base myself between Greece and Egypt mainly, and London occasionally. Absolutely love the internationalism that airbnb offers, connecting with travelers from different cultures. Made some amazing and lasting friendships thru this platform. On a personal note, a total addict to sci-fi. Personal hobbies I would like to revive are armchair astronomy, desert camping and scuba diving. Bucket list includes working remotely from Ubud, Bali.
