Authentic Athens Experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for four nights and really enjoyed the experience. The apartment is located in central Athens in a good neighborhood. It is very large and has a lot of old world charm, complete with a private rooftop garden. The location is close to the metro station so there is easy access to the main tourist sights. One suggestion for improvement; which was in other places where I have stayed, would be to provide a binder for guests to use which include information and maps on the closest grocery stores, restaurants, etc., as well as the opreration of the TV.

Beautiful home, friendly hosts, well located

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! The home is beautiful, safe and just a stone's throw from the metro. There is a fantastic little diner just down the street with wonderfully friendly people where we picked up breakfast each morning. We cooked on a few occasions in a small but fully equipped kitchen. I would definitely stay here again!

A very nice place in an excellent location

Versione inglese alla fine

Appartamento arredato con personalità nel centro di Atene, carino e ben tenuto. Proprietaria professionale, ci ha fornito mappe e indicazioni perfette. Vicino alla stazione della metro e a distanza di passeggiata dal centro. Eravamo in sei e ci siamo trovati bene.

Very well kept and nice apartment in the centre of Athens. Near the metro station and, by foot, to the center. Owner was professional and provided us with maps and indications. We were six persons and stayed comfortably.

Hilton Area Glat

  • 5 of 5

The flat was a perfect location with groceries, shops, and restaurants very close by. The walk to the Metro was five minutes and very accessible. We were able to use the Hilton pool( for a fee), walk down Basillisis Sophias Avenue to museums, Syntagma, Plaka, Monasteraki, and all of the ancient and modern sites. We were very close to Lykavvitos and Kolonaki and spent a morning riding the tram, visiting St. George, and strolling. The flat was comfortable, charming, with a stocked kitchen, stove, refrigerator, and freezer. There was ample hot water plus a washer which was very handy. The piece de resistance was the rooftop garden with flowering plants, pots of basil and oregano, lounge chairs and a sitting area with canopy and lights. It is a haven right in metropolitan Athens. It is a pleasant neighborhood and quiet even though it is so close to major thoroughfares of the city. The owner's Mother was helpful in her showing us the flat and was very accommodating. We highly recommend this charming flat which was our home for over a week on our recent trip. It was perfect when our son and friend joined us for several nights. There is even a crib if you have little ones. We were very pleased with our stay.

Nice and charming apartment - great location!

  • 5 of 5

A great stay in Athens thanks to this lovely apartment.

Two spacious bedrooms - comfortable beds. Charming livingroom. The apartment is so richly equipped. You will find anything you need.

And not to forget the beautiful rooftop terrace. We loved it (we - a Norwegian family of three).

The location is great. Safe and quiet neighbourhood close to the underground just two stops from Syntagma.

Gala, the owner, was helpful and reliable. She also helped us with transport to and from the airport. (Taxi - glad we did so).

We definitely recommend this apartment.

Great place to call home

  • 5 of 5

Property was lovely. We spent Christmas there and wanted an apartment that would feel like home. Lovely furnishings and decorations make this place great. The center of our activity was the wonderful dining room table. Location is quiet and convenient to metro as well as several local restaurants and grocery markets. We arrived in 3 groups and no one had difficulty finding the location.

The kitchen had everything we needed to do more cooking than I usually do on vacation due to holiday closures! Would go back again when in Athens.
