In the heart of Athens historical district and adjacent to the Acropolis, this Acropolis Luxury Apartment is suitable for short visits or long term rental. The owner’s vast experience with luxury hospitality décor, equipment, and etiquette defines a new form of “home hoteling” and combines fine aesthetics with a convenient utility of space. A small family visiting Athens can be hosted comfortably in this space or a couple or individual requiring longer term, fully furnished facilities, will find all living requirements satisfied.
The apartment is ideally and centrally located in the center of ancient Athens. The Acropolis and the metro station of Thissio are directly adjacent to this property. Most cultural and lifestyle points of interest in Athens, such as the Acropolis Museum, the ancient agora, and the very scenic old areas of Monastiraki and Plaka, are all well under a 10 minute walk. Summer visitors can enjoy beautiful and scenic cafés, taverns and trendy restaurants and can even enjoy the Thisio outdoor cinema (which has been rated one of the 10 best outdoor cinemas of the world)..all within 3 minutes walking distance.
This was a frustrating experience. Upon arrival, we were told that our apartment wasn't available due to water issues. No problem, things like that happen. But we were put in an apartment lacking virtually all the amenities that led us to chose the requested apartment. No fireplace, no first night breakfast, no bathroom supplies, very very tiny kitchen, no dryer, just a wash machine. We were told by Panos and his mother that this was an upgrade and we wouldn't be charged extra - but when I pointed out that the apartment we were put in was on the VRBO site and listed at a lesser cost Panos said 1) the apartments are exactly the same - obviously not 2) they rent for the exact same price - mmmm, nope, not according to the website 3) we never supply breakfast - then maybe shouldn't list it as an amenity. The difference as about $40 euro, which is not a big deal at the end of the day, but nobody likes being cheated or lied to, it is distasteful and I recommend to future renters that you don't reward VRBO folks that pull this type of thing, look for another place.
The apartment is very clean, great A/C, on a quiet street while also very close walking distance to Thissio metro and great restaurants/cafes with beautiful Acropolis views. Monastiraki and Plaka districts are surprisingly close to walk to. Panos and his mom were quick to respond to all our questions. I also recommend using their dedicated taxi driver, Christos. Very friendly, reasonable and on-time to and from the airport. One small criticism is if people are sleeping on the pull-out couch the blinds are very light, there are no privacy blinds to minimize the morning sun. We were happy to stay in this area and would absolutely/100% stay here again.
The apartment was very comfortable and was in the perfect location. One block to ancient agora and thisseos metro. 2 blocks to walking street that takes you to the Acropolis. There is a delicious bakery a few steps away. Our advice is to use the owners taxi driver, Chris. He is very pleasant, honest and reliable. We used him to and from the airport. We would stay here again!
Super location walking distance to all sites and restaurants. Roomy enough for 3 people. Panos and his mother were very good hosts. Would recommend this apartment.
This apartment is very close to the tourist sites yet on a quiet street. Everything we needed for our 5 day stay was in the apartment. Noise was not a problem and the air conditioning made it easy to sleep on the 42°C days. We made use of the 2 bikes to get to many sites. I would recommend this apartment for your stay in Athens.
