The view of Athens and the Acropolis is amazing. Especially at night
We loved working with the property owner. He helped us to feel welcome and showed us how to get around the city and to make the most of our trip. The property was very secure and clean and had everything we needed. I can not think of anything that was lacking. I do wish I had brought my own blow dryer because I needed one that has a cool air option but that would be the only thing I would have needed to do different.
Great apartment off the beaten path
We stayed 3 nights at this great apartment, just a short cab ride from all the attractions of Athens. The neighborhood is very quiet and there are many shops and great restaurants near by. We stayed with our two boys (7 &9) and found the apartment very comfortable. Will recommend to any friends heading to Athens.
Quiet break from bustle or Athens
Wonderful apartment just outside the hustle and bustle of tourist areas of Athens. Nikos met us at our arrival. His knowledge of the area was spectacular and his recommendations for visiting and eating in Athens were great. Taxis to tourist areas were approximately €5 and all taxi drivers were kind and helpful. We left our car at the apartment and taxied everywhere. The apartment is near a square with many wonderful restaurants and bakeries. We walked to and from the square, but the walk uphill is steep. You can easily taxi back for €2-3. Nikos' restaurant recommendations were fabulous. We enjoyed Bakalogatos (I hope I spelled this correctly!) restaurant so much, we went twice....great house wine, food and wonderful service. Our apartment was clean. We enjoyed a night playing cards on the rooftop deck while seeing the Acropolis in the distance. We also enjoyed the apartment's balconies. We always felt safe! Thank you, Nikos! We will recommend your apartment to our family and friends who travel to Athens!
Lovely apartment, near to a vibrant area
We had four nights in Nikos's apartment. Nikos was very friendly and helpful while we were booking and although he was away when we were there, the lady who looks after the apartment was also very kind, friendly and helpful. The apartment is at the top of a hill (Athens in very hilly) - so the shared rooftop terrace view is wonderful, especially the acropolis. The apartment is very clean, spacious and new looking, and very comfortable - we felt at home immediately. The beds were comfortable and the kids loved the lift! Both bedrooms and the living room have terraces with tables, and there is air con (not in double-bed room) for when it's just too hot to be outside! It is about 5 mins walk from shops and a further 5 mins from Kypseli square, where there is a long parade of pastry shops on one side (Kypseli) and many restaurants (Fokionos Negro) on the other. It is a vibrant, multi-cultural neighbourhood with kids playing football in the square, men playing dominos and women chatting. The restaurants sold good local food at prices similar to those we'd been paying in the Peloponnese, and there are a couple (closed in August) that are widely recommended. Look at www.mattbarrett-travel.com for info on this area. Taxis into the centre are 4-8 euros, and everywhere, so for a family, it's cheaper and quicker than taking the bus or trolley-bus, both of which are only a couple of minutes walk away. I'd be very happy to stay here again.
Nikos was a great host and was very helpful. Would stay again if we are in Athens.
Very informative, engaging and willing to help.
The apartment is well maintained in a modern complex and is lovely and quiet.
Excellent stay in Athens
I would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting Athens. It is everything that you could need. Thank you Nikos ! Thanks for all of your help
Our title 'Amazing View' gives literaly the picture of this property. The (30kms range) views from the 24h accessible terrace is breathtaking. It's more like flying over the city in a helicopter. Acropolis, Piraeus harbour, the sea of Saronic Gulf and the islands Aegina and Salamina are just a few of the visible sights. The apartment located at the sides of the mot central hill of Athens. The Attica region The mainland of Greece forms the southernmost part of the Balkan peninsula, in the north also including parts of the historical regions of Macedonia and Thrace, further to the south narrowing into a 'Greek peninsula' in its own right, including historical Epirus, Thessaly, Boeotia and Attica, and concluding in the separate peninsula of Peloponnese, comprising the historical territories Sparta, Corinth and Argos, all surrounding the peninsula's heartland of Arcadia. As for Attica, the region is incredibly famous and unique for its breathtaking monuments and museums. A region with great history due to also being the birthplace of the famous philosophers Aristotelis, Sokratis, Aristofanis etc. So why not come and explore the region for yourself ! The Athens / Nea Kipseli area The location is 'Nea Kipseli', part of the center circle, which means that if you enjoy walking you'll need about 20 minutes to Omonoia square and through that to Plaka, the old town, the Ancient Market, the Acropolis and lots of other 'must see' monuments. On the other hand, if you are the type of public transportation, you'll find several different bus lines in 100-150 meters range around the flat, taking to all main points of the city, ex. time by bus to Omonoia square 5-6', Syntagma 10', Mesogion ave 5-6', Acropolis (south side) in 12' etc. If you are after all a practical type, you'll realize that you can have a call-taxi waiting for you right outside your door and take you to all places mentioned above before you know it, with only a few euros. Taxis are exceptionally cheap in Greece (Omonoia 4 eur., Plaka 6 eur, Acropolis 7 eur, etc). In a range of 100m there are pharmacy, super market, grocery, bakery, butcher shop, tobacco, food take away, you name it. As for the issue of safety, you can ask the little children playing out in the street. In 5 minutes walk, about 300m there is the famous Fokionos Negri street, full of restaurants, coffee shops, pubs, clubs and any kind of night amusement.
