Reviews of this property
Appartamento molto bello con vista sull'acropoli dall'ampia terrazza, manca qualcosa in cucina se uno vuol farsi da mangiare ma nel complesso vicino a supermercati ristoranti e mezzi pubblici.
April 2015: 10 Dagen in het appartement van Helena en Vassilis gezeten. Keurig appartement met een groot dakterras. Met openbaar vervoer is het centrum van Athene zeer makkelijk en snel te bereiken, naar de boulevard/zee is het ongeveer 10 minuten lopen, vanaf hier kun je met de tram alle kanten op. Volop supermarkten en restaurantjes in de omgeving. Na een bezoek aan het centrum is het heerlijk relaxen op het dakterras.Helena en Vassilis houden zich aan afspraken en doen er van alles aan om je verblijf zo prettig mogelijk te maken.Zeer goed bevallen, leuk adres voor een citytrip Athene van een week of langer.

Nice studio but without TV.
Clean and central.
Helena and Harris are absolutely adorable. They're so nice and help us so much about the city and ours guests. The apartment are beautiful, so clean and near of the center of the city.
The appartment is really nice, it looks better than in the photos. The views to the Acropolis were amazing. It is near to all the principal attractions, also near to a metro station, but we didn't need to take it due to the closeness of everything.
We arrived late so we take the transfer from the airport. Chryssa went for us, she was really friendly and made the way home really fun. When we arrived to the neighborhood she made us a little tour telling us where was the basic things (bakery, supermarket, Acropolis...). Also she told us what to see and the best days for it.
I would totally recommend it! If I come back I would stay here with no doubt.
Perfect location for Athens. Nice and complete appartment.
On request, Gelena is able to arrange it
We were met by the very friendly Helena at the airport. The apartment was in a perfect, safe location and made visiting the Acropolis, the museum and the atmospheric restaurants in Plaka very easy. There is a mini supermarket, a pharmacy and an excellent bakery on your doorstep together with a few good restaurants. Great cafes with good coffee are close by too, our favourite and nearest was the Little Tree Books and Coffee cafe.
The apartment had everything we needed but it could do with a facelift, especially the bathroom. We loved Athens and the view at night from the apartment's balcony of the Acropolis is breathtaking!
We enjoyed ou stay at Athens very much.The apartment is small, but clean and functional with a comfortable bed. It´s a good place for staying a few days and discovering Athens, above all Akropolis and Plaka, by foot.The next underground station lies in a walking distance as well. The communication with Helena was perfect and the nice driver Niki exactly arrived to take us to the airport verx early in the morning.
I think we will choose this apartment once more, if we will visit Athens once more.
The place had minor defects like the tiny bathroom and the bed which was a bit broken but for a short stay of about a week it is great, the huge veranda is the best place to drink something looking at the acropolis, which was very near, the neighbourhood was probably the one with the best nightlife of athens full of clubs and restaurants, and the house was very near the center of athens, you could make the whole way from syntagma visiting places in between like the flea market in about 30 mins, the air coinditioning is a huge plus.
We were two persons having holiday in Athens and enjoyed very much! The apartment is very nice and clean. There is an air-condition in one bedroom and a kitchen. Location is good, 10 - 15 minutes walk to metro station. You can take a bus on your home street but we could not find the timetables or route map.
The staff is very friendly. If there is something wrong in your appartment they try to fix it at once!
There is no TV in appartment.
