Guestbook comments from the manager
I stayed here with my girlfriend last Spring. Communciations with Paris (the owner) was easy and stress free. The unit is very comfortable, nicely decorated and even though in a building it gave me a feeling of privacy. The accommodation was spotless and had a 'home from home' feel to it.



Although located in a quiet street this accommodation is ideal as the area is very lively full of shops, restaurants, bars and coffee shops. It is also a short walk to the metro which was great and walking distance to Syntagma square and Plaka. There is also an amazing Italian restaurant and two lively restaurant bars just around the corner from the apartment.



I thoroughly recommend the apartment and if I am able to return to Athens this would be the place to stay. A really enjoyable stay. Thank you

I still remember the feeling of excitement when one of my brothers' university friends came to visit for a week and used our little Plaka apartment back in summer 2006! I dare say he was our first guest for we have since been offering our own selected accommodation and welcoming guests with the very same feeling of excitement and anticipation!

We are a small group of 3; yet always around to answer your questions, provide you with going out suggestions and recommend activities and places to visit. We will meet you upon arrival and when you need assistance we are here to help.

Upon request we can organize a weekly cleaning service, excursions, airport transfers and a private taxi service.

We look forward to welcoming you in our beautiful city!

Best Regards,

Paris T. - Owner

Owner purchased this apartment in 2006

EXCELLENT LOCATION AND AMENITIES

  • 5 of 5
This is a lovely apartment from which to explore Athens. We were in the city for the first time, and found the central location a great base to discover the rest of the city from. The apartment is well-maintained and clean, and fully stocked with crockery and utensils. The environs are quiet, but it is a very short stroll to some excellent restaurants and shops. The landlord, Paris, is very friendly and helpful --- willing to wait for us past midnight when our flight was delayed! All in all an excellent experience and I would recommend it heartily.

NOT SO THRILLED STAY AT THE KOLONAKI APARTMENT

  • 3 of 5
My wife and I were fortunate to be able to spend a week in Athens this past January. The sights are amazing, the locals are friendly and the entertainment and food costs are a bargain. We were not, however, as pleased with our “Kolonaki apartment” accommodation. We got off to a bad start with the apartment owner, Paris, when we had trouble finding the apartment on the first night we were there. In a rented car, we were driving in from a visit to Delphi. I had a lot of trouble finding the apartment because there are no visible street signs to help you find your way. We called Paris to let him know that we were lost and that we would be late for our appointment. His only suggestion to us was “hire a cab” which he told me numerous times. We drove some more and got closer to the apartment, but still could not locate it. After talking to him a second time, he threatened to leave and not let us have the apartment. To avoid losing the apartment and our deposit, we had to leave our car on a side street and hire a cab to drive us the final mile or so.

As for the apartment itself, on the good side it is a great location. A short walk gets you to Syntagma Square where you can hop on the Metro. There are also some great museums nearby. Although both the bathroom and kitchen are quite small, they have recently been updated and are nice. The shower is very tiny though.

On the negative side, the bed and mattress are very old and not very comfortable. The pillows also need to be replaced. To get by, we used our inflatable airplane pillows that we normally use on long flights. The outside entrance to the apartment is dark even during the daytime. Luckily my wife brought along a flashlight or we would have been fumbling with the lock each time we entered the apartment. No light at the entrance is also a security issue, although we always felt secure while exiting and entering the apartment.

Taken all together, we cannot recommend this apartment to future travelers. The attitude of the owner, Paris, was especially disappointing. He could have been more understanding of our predicament.

Owner's Response: Dear John,
We are sorry that you felt unattended during arrival. Unfortunately it was impossible for us to guide you over the phone in driving through Athens without a map to assist you and since you could not explain to us where you were, the best advice we could give over the phone was to ask around for directions - we thought a taxi driver would be the best person to ask.
Of course at no point did we imply that you would lose your reservation and it is disappointing to read this comment from someone who stayed in the apartment. If you remember initial arrival was planned sometime in the afternoon, which changed on your arrival day to around 16.00 with actual arrival at around 18.30; we waited for your arrival for 6.30 hours and informed you that we had another arrival to attend to at 19.00 and could return back to the apartment after 19.30 - yet apparently this was perceived as a threat....
As far as the apartment goes future guests should know that the bad bulb at the corridor has been replaced and the mattress will stay on for a bit longer given that it was only replaced last year and is orthopedic and perfect for the great majority of our guests.
Thank you for posting a review.

PERFECT FOR ATHENS HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Kolonaki apartment in June 2012. Our first choice for apartment was already booked but we could not have been happier with this apartment. The apartment is located in a quiet residential area, very close to the metro and only 2 stops to the Acropolis. Most days we walked to the centre of Athens but returned at night to dine in the cafes close to the apartment and away from the tourist areas. The apartment beautifully decorated and has a full kitchen and washing machine. It was excellent value for money and I would highly recommend this property. Athens is a stunning city and this is a great base to explore it from

KOLONAKI LUX

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful studio apartment in a really quiet area. The location is so convenient to the city centre. Syntagma Square is 5 mins away, the national gardens are even closer and the gardens are a great spot to take a greek coffee in the morning. The apartment is spotless and really well kitted out with iron, filter coffee machine & hairdryer. The shower has plenty of hot water and is nice and powerful.Paris the owner gave me directions to the building which were fool proof and he was very professional and helpful with suggestions of things to see and do. The apartment is at the foot of Lycabettus hill which cuts off the bulk of the walk but unfortunately not the hard bit!! View from top is incredible we had to go twice! I couldnt recommend this apartment enough. Thank you Paris for a fantastic stay in Athens.

PERFECTLY LOCATED ATHENIAN GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
The location of this apartment in fashionable Kolonaki in central Athens is perfect for exploring Athens and getting a taste of modern Athenian living. Great restaurants ( both smart and relaxed), cafes, sweet shops and bars are all within walking distance, as is the best of Athens shopping and some good galleries and museums. You can comfortably walk to Syntagma and a metro station or taxi rank for those destinations further away.
The apartment itself has a good sized bedroom, a small kitchenette, a combined bathroom/ laundry and small balcony. It was clean and well-maintained and the owner was responsive and helpful.

MY BEST CHOISE

  • 5 of 5
I was in this flat many times. I love "Athens" and Greece. The flat is all you need for a good holiday or a short stay in Athens. I think the price is value for what the flat offer. I check-in in the flat without problem even when I was late the owner was there waiting for me. In the flat you have all you need to cooking, is totaly furnished with good stuff and beautiful deco. All the cleanliness in perfect condiction and enought for my stay, bedliness and towel realy clean. I find the flat very clean all times and smelling good. The TV, Internet Wi-Fi working perfect this for me was very important, internet help a lot. The flat is in the middle of the fashion neighbourhood in Athens, bars, restaurants, market is very close too and find it is easy. In the flat you have a lot of information about Athens, magazine, maps and guides is there. The flat is jus 5 min walking from the tube station and the bus stop to the airport. I sleep good and no nosy. I just have good things to tell about this flat. For me is a perfect choise.
