A very nice place in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

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.

The rooftop garden is amazing

  • 4 of 5

We (a family of 4 with 2 teenage boys) spent 3 nights here and would recommend it. It is quiet, central (we both walked and took metro to central Athens and both were convenient) and has everything you need. But it's the rooftop garden that make this apt so special - a real oasis from the big city.

If you are a runner, then the park around the hill of Likavittous is a great place to run. From the apt to the top it takes about 20 min to run...if you go early (before 7) it is cool and you have the whole hill and views over Athens incl Acropolis to your self!

we would also highly recommend the restaurant Nice n Easy on Omirou in Kolonaki (about 15 min walk).

Charming and atmospheric

  • 5 of 5

The flat was lovely, spacious with gorgeous floors, high ceilings and a huge, plant-filled roof terrace accessible by a fire escape. Naturally it was immaculate, but it felt like a home too, full of interesting books and DVDS (which you probably won't watch, as there are too many things to do outside). Gala's mother gave us a warm welcome and showed us around.

The area is great, classically Athenian with narrow, hilly streets, not at all touristic but only a pleasant 20-minute walk from the centre. There is an excellent restaurant round the corner. I would love to stay here again next time I'm in Athens. Highly recommended.
