Great location with a wonderful host!

  • 5 of 5
We went here for our honeymoon and were so pleased! My husband was most impressed!

#1 - the location is great! Close to everything! We spent the first 2 days using the "hop on hop off" tour. It was a great way to see everything and get familiar with the city!

#2 - the apartment was huge by European standards! Stocked with basic necessities and was very comfortable!

#3 - Paul was a wonderful guide! Helped us with our bags, gave great recommendations and I asked him a couple places to go and he provided excellent directions!

We had an amazing time and highly recommend this apartment! We felt right at home and would stay the again if we get lucky enough to return to Greece!

We liked it much

  • 5 of 5
4 travellers from 21 to 25 y/o
- Photos and the apartment description are very accurate, we even had food in the fridge for the next mornings
- The apartment is very clean and tidy.

It is easy to get there from the airport by train-subway, then it is a 1 minute walk with your luggages. We met the owner Paul on the street as planned, very friendly. He helped the girls with their luggages. And then took some of his time to suggest us activities, places to visit and some other cities to visit since we had a car for 2 days. You can park on the street, or if you prefer there is an Albanian indoor parking next to the apartment. Very nice people and only 9 euros per night.
The apartment is well located; 10-15 minutes walk from downtown. There is also a supermarket nearby. Paul did recommend us to take a taxi when coming home late at night. However, we walked late at night (like past midnight) and did not feel unsafe at anytime. There is always mouvement on the 2 streets you have to walk from downtown to the apartment. Just don't walk streets you would not walk in your own neighborhood and you will be more than fine, do not bother :)

IT IS NOT EXPANSIVE AT ALL and it is much better than a hotel room

Thank you!

I and 3 others highly recommend this place,

Perfectly good inside/Iffy outside

  • 3 of 5
We are a family of 5, 2 adults and 3 children (all girls). The apartment itself is nice and as advertised. A little small for 5 people, but everything was in good working order - kitchen, air conditioning, wifi, hot water, etc. The location with respect to the main street is also a positive feature - we appreciated its quietness away from all the street noise Athens has to offer. The owner met us as promised, was very friendly and available to answer questions. I would be remiss, however, not to give an honest description of the neighborhood surrounding the apartment, and let prospective renters make their decision accordingly. In short, the immediate neighborhood is very sketchy. My wife and I have spent a considerable amount of time living and traveling in big American cities such as New York, Boston, and San Francisco. We are not shrinking violets. Our children have spent time in those big cities, as well, without being scared to death. We have also lived in Athens for 2+ years cumulatively. Simply put, the neighborhood around this apartment was the worst we had ever seen in Greece: filthy, malodorous, graffiti-riddled, with untrustworthy people lurking around with nothing better to do than stare at the foreigners in their midst, and OBVIOUS nighttime drug activity on the side street below the apartment's balcony. Directly next to the main entrance to the apartment is a bus company specializing in trips to Albania. Other residents encountered in the lobby or hallways of the building were, well, the type to "get one's attention." We wouldn't DREAM of allowing our children out of our sight in this neighborhood, and any time we left or returned (it's a 5-10 minute walk from either Omonoia or Metaxourgheio), we were on full red alert regarding what was going on around us. The general vibe in the neighborhood is not necessarily violent, but it's menacing and desperation is in the air. Maybe having a car at our disposal would have helped, but the possibility of a car being broken into in this neighborhood has got to be very high. We were saddened that this was our children's first-ever experience in Greece, which is a wonderful country with generally friendly people. Fortunately, our travels elsewhere in Greece left them with a good impression, but this neighborhood was a hurdle, something to be forgotten. Would we return here? Uh, no way. Times are tough in Greece, and this is a very, very tough neighborhood.

Owner's Response: Welli think that things are not as dramatic as described. The apartment is at the center of the city and the area gets quit after the stores and offices close down for the day. At night a few people walk the streets at the area. The area is not dangerous by all means. Nothing has happened around the area for years. Crime is very low by statistics. I always causion my guests to take a taxi coming home late at night so they don't have to encounter people staring at them. And taxi ie pretty inexpensive in Greece. I hosted may people and families with young kids(read the other reviews) and i never encountered any problems. I am really sorry and i apologize that you got a bad taste of your visit to Greece.

Perfect for a city sightseeing vacation in the heart of Athens

  • 5 of 5
We spent a wonderful week in this beautiful apartment.

All was as described. The pictures show all as it is! Very nice: we found Milk, juice, cereals, water, coffee, ... so for the arrival we had all we need! The apartment is located really near to Omonia place where you find a Metro station if you need and also food like gyros or souflaki, a bakery and a little supermarket - you can reach all the nice places of Athens by feet (15 min. to Syntagma, 10-15 min to Monastiraki, 20 min to Acropolis Museum..). We rented a car and it was no problem to park the car near to the apartment in the little street crossing agiou konstantinou. The owners are always reachable by phone and very friendly. If you need to reach them you can even use the local home phone - and don't need to spend money by using a foreign mobile phone.

The location of the apartment is in the immigrants part of the city - but this is no problem. In any case there is police everywhere so no danger at all!

Even if the house from outside appears a little bit "strange" - the apartment is really wonderful. Beautiful colors and you find everything imaginable what you should need. We appreciated a lot the Italian coffee maker! We enjoyed every morning a perfect Latte macchiato :-)

Also the washing-drying-machine is very useful - you put everything inside in the morning - go for sight-seeing - and in the evening all your clothes are ready - washed and dried :-)

The apartment is located in the side/backside of the street - so no problem with the "loud" streets of Athens!

We fully recommend the apartment - it is much more comfortable than a hotel!!

Thanks for all! If we come back to Athens, we surely would rent here again!

Family visit to Athens

  • 5 of 5
Not only did the apartment meet the needs of our family of five, the owner personally helped with calls to the lost luggage department at the airport and graciously transported us to our next destination outside of Athens. She even had extra toothpaste and shampoo so we did not need to buy those items again.

The apartment was very clean and had everything we needed. Since the weather was extremely hot, the a/c was much appreciated. The location is very good for sightseeing and metro access, and there is plenty of shopping nearby for any need. Future guests not accustomed to life in big cities may appreciate knowing that the outside of the building is not reflective of the apartment inside. While the surrounding areas may look less than upscale, the apartment itself is well maintained. Our family would rent here again should our travels take us back to Athens. Thank you!
