Stay in the Old City. Make sure you are assigned to the right level of class.
Other comments
The teachers and staff will go out of their way to accommodate your needs. I made good friends among the other students. A first day get-together might make this easier for others.

The very touristic environment of the old city. The staff's kindness.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
If you want a fun little holiday tasting a bit of Greek language to distract you, it is the dream location. If you really want to learn Greek, choose the Assimil method.
Other comments
The teaching, all in Greek from the beginning, focuses entirely on oral and neglects written comprehension and the precise meaning of words. The level of some teachers is very low in English which prevents a good communication with students not having reached a sufficient level in Greek.

The good location invites you to enjoy a beautiful walk through the old streets and/or a creamy frappé in Splanzia :) Well-priced local taverns.
Other comments
Quiet and central location, 150 metres from the sea. Relaxed atmosphere. All in all, I had a great time and I'm the frontrunner in my beginner's course in Düsseldorf
