The apartment was spacious, comfortable and well equipped. We also appreciated the pre-organised taxi from the airport. The immediate neighbourhood had some nice restaurants, and was within a short walk to the metro station to the coast, as well as being walking distance from the city centre.
Stayed for 3 nights in the middle of Oct. Safe neighborhood with restaurants and marts nearby. Nice patio at the apartment to sit outside. Plenty of good restaurants all of Athens, mostly inexpensive too. We used Mr. Zois' connection taxi driver to take us back & forth airport, $50E each way. It was well worth it after many hours of flying.
We really enjoyed staying at the apartment, it had everything we needed for the four of us. There were some good ,very near restaurants and also a supermarket. Ten minutes walk away was a larger supermarket and shops. You can walk up phillopopou hill ( looking at all the ruins takes a bit longer) and down the other side to the bottom of the acropolis in twenty minutes. Plaka was a 15minute walk away. Our favourite places were the panathanaic stadium which was very atmospheric and without lots of people and the same for the ancient Agora.We used Vangelis for the taxi both ways, who was very prompt and reliable. Maria was also very kind as she allowed us to leave all our luggage in the apartment as we had a late flight. We all had a lovely holiday and one day will go back.
We just had a very enjoyable stay at this wonderful apartment. We were a family of 4 with 2 teenage children. The unit was spacious, spotlessly clean and well equipped. The owner was available online even though he was out of the country, answering all of our questions promptly. Troon Street on the next corner was brilliant, with cool cafes, restaurants, supermarket and health food shop for gluten free/bio products etc. The location was ideal for us, not at all touristy and generally very quiet. The random church bells were not at all a problem, we barely noticed them. We walked everywhere as the Acropolis and surrounds were easily accessible, but we don't mind walking. Otherwise it's not far from closest Metro. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone. Thanks to Zois and his caretaker Maria.
The room was great. We spent most of our time in the room playing cards on the large balcony. Sites were within walking distance as was the Metro. supermarket near by and plenty of restaurants. The initial meeting went well. We were a little late but she (Maria) waited for us a little while, and gave us the 5 min tour. The rooms was clean and easy to figure out.
I would definitely recommend this property to anyone staying in Athens. We ate at the restruant around the corner on Troon st and it was great, but didn't have a whole lot of fish stuff available.
The Philoppopos hill was pretty close and made for a nice walk to all the other sites.
We stayed here over our recent Spring Break with 3 kids, 2 toddlers and 1 teenager. Please place worked well for the two toddlers, who tend to get into everything. We moved the few breakable items out of reach and they had they entire place to play. There was nice sized playpen/crib that worked great to keep the littlest one in his bed. There was inside parking for our rental car. I really liked that there was all the items that we needed already there, toilet paper, small shampoos, dishes, utinsels, etc. Most places say they have all the basics, but this place really did. There was coffee, napkins, etc. Very nice. The maid, Maria, and her son spoke english very well and were very nice and helpful. They were always on time and ready to help. I had read the neighborhood was a little sketchy, but we wandered about every day with no issue what so ever. Everyone we met was helpful and kind. We felt very safe. We did drive up to the Acropolis and parked nearby. Never had any issue finding parking on the street. We did find a wonderful little Gyro place a half a block up from the front of the train station that was just fabulous. We at there several times while there. The owner was great help and answered all our questions and helped out any way he could. I would definitely recommend this place and stay again.
Only negative I found was I could not get more than about 1/3 a tub full of hot water. Showers were fine, but a bath wasn't an option. There was no view of the sites, but for the price, I would not expect one. Nonetheless, we enjoyed sitting out on the balcony enjoying the scenery.
