This is a small room on the roof terrace above my painting studio with its' own bathroom. It is connected to my flat through a service staircase but is accessible separately from the main stairway of the apartment house and is on the fourth floor without an elevator. The view over the roofs of Kypseli is spectacular and we are well connected to the city. We are very near the heart of Athens, in a neighbourhood throbbing with life, full of shops and localities of any kind. There is a pedestrian way nearby as well as a large park and we are walking distance from the National Archeological Museum.

    Wonderful host and truely special room located in one of the best neighbourhoods in Athens. Felt completely at home and at ease the moment I arrived thanks to Thrafia's welcoming attitude and a vibe that can't be beat. Would stay here every time I return to Athens if possible!

    Thank you Thrafia and Maria for the short and cosy stay! Loved the environment and the friendliness you extended to me. It was a great introduction to my first time in Greece! Quiet, cosy, friendly, helpful!

    I had a wonderful stay here. There is everything you need in the beautiful little apartment. The hosts are always there for you and really nice and friendly people. I was always helped and had many nice conversations. The neighborhood is a bit quieter but you get there definitely everything you need. I enjoyed it.

    I had the most wonderful time during my stay with my host in Athens! Firstly, my accommodation was great, a cosy room nicely decorated,, a separate bathroom and shower and a huge roof terrace with a view over Athens all to myself!
    My host is so nice, as a born Athenian he goes out of his way to explain where and how to go and get everywhere. He is very generous and helpful and even managed to transfer my boarding ticket onto my mobile!
    As an artist who has studied and travelled abroad you can always enjoy a conversation in German or English and he always takes the time to talk to you, so you will feel quite at home in Athens.
    I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and was very lucky to find this special place.

    C'était mon premier voyage solo et Thrafia et Mary ont su m'accueillir comme il fallait. J'ai passé un super séjour grâce à eux, leurs conseils et leur gentillesse. C'était vraiment parfait, n'hésitez pas à les rejoindre pour votre prochain séjour !

    I experienced one of the best stays in my life. First of all, the room and its bathroom are on the terrace, so it is independent from Thrafia's flat, but at the same time I could go downstairs and have a chat with him or play backgammon! I had all I needed and the place was quite central. I improved my Greek and I met so many of his friends and family members, dancing tango and playing Biriba! They were all nice to me, and I had an authentic Greek experience. I really found a friend in Thrafia (and in his excellent food), who warmly welcomed me and taught me so many things about his culture, and I will definitely come back for probably even longer.

    Hôte attentionné,discret et chaleureux qui peut nous accueillir en français, en anglais, en allemand et en grec bien sûr. Son logement à proximité du centre est indépendant avec une immense terrasse ( non étouffée par les immeubles qui l'entourent ) et jolis couchers de soleil assurés.
    Partage convivial de repas et celui des pâtes au poulpe restera dans ma mémoire. Ευχαριστώ Θραφια

    The room and bathroom are a lovely and self contained oasis in a good location for all of Athens. Thrafia is a charming and welcoming host. See you again some day mate...

    I loved it to have my own little rooftop room, in buzzy Kypseli. Thrafia was a very friendly, hospitable and helpful host.
