Monastiraki Urban Apartment

After an adventurous day exploring, shopping, and eating, walking into your Aiolou 1 apartment will have you kicking off your shoes and lounging on the comfy sofa.

The apartment features a spacious living room; its tasteful décor reflecting the diversity of Athens.

Sit back on the snug patchwork armchair and read a book, or lay on the sofa and switch on the 60’ smart TV ultra HD 4k flat screen with surround sound system.

Head over to the balcony to people watch and to catch a glimpse of the Acropolis before you head on over yourself.

As the Athens central market (Varvakeios Agora) is just a stone’s throw away, make sure to go shopping in order to make use of the apartment’s fully-equipped kitchen. Which also includes a Nespresso coffee machine, teapot with complimentary English tea, conventional coffee maker, kettle, and toaster.

The two bedrooms feature high quality mattresses and linen plus abundant closet space.

The renovated bathroom features a walk-in shower and is fully stocked with towels, toiletries, and a hair dryer.

Regardless of the season, your stay will be accompanied by your ideal temperature as the apartment has individual air-conditioning units in both the living and bedroom areas.

The Neighborhood

Aiolou st. named after Aeolus (keeper of the wind) from ancient Greek mythology, is located between the city’s three major squares: Syntagma, Omonoia, and Monastiraki. The area (Historic Centre) has always been linked to politics and commerce. Commerce remains anchored in this ‘triangle’ with nearby Ermou st. being the protagonist of Athenian retail activity. Though global brands have edged out most of the family-owned shops that used to line the 1.5km long street, you’ll find plenty of smaller niche shops in the side streets.

The perfect starting point for exploring the city on foot or by metro (Monastiraki metro station is a mere 5’ walk away). The city’s booming culinary, café, and bar scene is right at your doorstep as is Varvakeios Market (Athens’s central meat, fish, and vegetable market that dates back to the late 19th century).

Walk the cobblestoned streets from Monastiraki, through Thisseio, Plaka, and up towards Anafiotika. Continue on towards the ancient open-air theatre of Herodeion, the Acropolis Museum, and of course the Acropolis.

    The apartment is much better than in photos. This was my first airbnb experience and I chose it mainly for location but besides location it was super clean and stylish. It also has a view of acropolis from balcony and nespresso coffee machine was also provided. Mattresses, pillows and bed linens were also the highest quality! Look no further than this apartment!

    Bill & John seem to run a professional operation, very clean place, smooth check in, George met us and explained everything and provided tips. Bill and John also helped with private transportation from airport which is about 45-50 minute drive
    for reasonable fee. Makes it easier than dealing with taxi at 1:00am. We walked to acropolis from this apartment, also close to museums, parliament, etc. very helpful with letting us keep luggage past checkout, also called taxi for us per
    request for departure. Very pleased.
