About Efi Skarlatou
Hello I'm Efi, I am an architect and a mum of three girls. I invite you to stay in my apartment in a great location of Athens, the city I grew up in, that I designed and constructed myself using the best materials in the market and a lot of joy.
Efi Skarlatou purchased this Apartment in 2010
Why Efi Skarlatou chose Athens
The apartment is located in one of the most important historical areas in the country, the Acropolis area, famous in the whole world as the symbol of ancient Greek civilization and I knew I was buying a piece of it when I chose it. I've been visiting, admiring and having fun in this area since I was a child, that's why I designed and looked after my property with a lot of joy and love.
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartment is new! The renovation was completed in 2012. I am an architect so when I bought it I knew I would demolish it and build my own design from the beginning. So not only the design is new but also the electrical, plumbing that all is hidden under what you see. So what I have is a brand new beautiful apartment around the corner from the Acropolis.

Friendly, clean, in a great (safe) location.
My wife, two daughters (both under 10) and I really enjoyed this flat. Plenty of space with a modern design with everything we needed. Kitchen, WiFi, clothes washer in addition to the usual amenities. The owner, Efi is very responsive and friendly. She also booked a taxi back to the airport for us, which arrived right on time. Location is great, just around the corner from the Acropolis Museum and some good (if touristy) restaurants. Easy walk to the Acropolis, Plaka and Parliament.
We would absolutely stay here again.
The Best Location & Beautiful
I can’t say enough of how great the location and beautiful the apartment is. We walked to everything we wanted to see and found the best food and coffee within a block away. The apartment itself is very clean and balconies both in the front and back provide beautiful views. Efi has been amazingly helpful. Pickup from the airport was a breeze and when a confusion came up on a taxi to the port, she answered the phone very early in the morning and fixed everything for us. We will definitely stay again.
Great bones of a place but Sleeping was tricky
The good: Excellent location, literally around the corner from the Acropolis Museum, and all that is nearby (restaurants, etc). Walk to all the central sites. Quiet though at night. Nice outdoor spaces with a long terrace off the main room, and a small one in back off the bedroom. Plenty of natural light. Mostly hardwood floors. Made use of the washer. Host was very pleasant, giving us a detailed tour of the place, and gave us local insights on a provided map.
Could be better: The mattress was board hard, really. Adding a blanket, then the duvet helped somewhat, but then we lost those as covers. Single sheets for a large bed were awkward for a couple. A mattress pad and appropriately sized sheets would be nice. Other possible additions: a duvet cover, more than 2 proper glasses, a utensil holder, bath toiletries, paper towels, etc. A little expenditure and this would be an awesome place, and more in line with the promise of the property photos.
Thank you for your comments. I am constantly trying to improve my property in order to offer a great stay to my future guests. As you may remember I am an architect and I designed and built the interiors myself so I look after my design, preserve and repair whenever needed.
I was surprised about your comment about the mattress because I haven't had but good comments about it during all this time that my listing is active. It was bought from a well known company and I remember that it was quite expensive because it was one of their finest ones. Maybe you personally enjoy to sleep in very soft mattresses but the anatomic ones that help people with back problems and offer better sleep should not be too soft.
I suppose the cleaning lady made a mistake with the single sheets and I am sorry about that. It has't happened before and it will not happen again. I also did not realize how many glasses my previous guests had broken so I bought a lot more to replace them! There is also shampoo and shower gel available from now on since you suggested and asked for it!
I don't have paper towels because I offer cloth towels.
Well located and well fitted out
Very enjoyable. Smooth check in with owner. Will return
We liked it so much we stayed here twice!
We also stayed here after our cruise had finished - see my earlier review.
The location was awesome
This was a really great place to stay. It was walking distance to the Acropolis and shops and restaurants. Wish we had stayed longer. The appartment was very comfortable with air conditioning in both the living room and bedroom. The beds were very comfortable and the security on the doors made us feel very safe. The host arranged for a shuttle service for us from the airport on our approval which was very convienient. Only complaint was the elevator only takes one person and it was not working twice when we went to use it. The appartment is on the 4th floor.
The apartment is located in the centre of Athens, is walking distance from the Acropolis and it’s new museum and the ancient temple of Olympian Zeus with easy access to the metro station «acropoli», the tram and the bus. It is easy to visit the city without renting a car since you can walk to the most important highlights of the centre, take the metro to other areas of Athens or the tram to the beach (Alimos beach: 6,0 kilometres). If you have an interest in Archeology the most interesting spots are walking distance from the apartment. The archaeological museum, the ancient market, the temple of Ifaistos and so on. But to get to the places of historical interest you walk through the old city of Plaka, Anafiotika and Monastiraki area, the flea market where you see young people, souvenir shops and little restaurants open during the whole day till late at night. Spending the whole day walking around these places and having a meal of souvlaki or moussaka at a taverna is very enjoyable. If you like the nightlife many open air clubs are in the center and near the sea a few kilometres outside the city. The ancient Roman theatre 'Irodio' is under the Acropolis and offers excellent shows during the summer.
