Charming flat with a gracious host!

  • 4 of 5

The area seemed a little run down and I was concerned when we first arrived. The owner was there to greet us, showed us around the apartment and assured us it was a safe neighborhood. Three stops on the Metro from Syntagma Square, four to Monastraki. About six blocks to the grocery store. It turned out to be a very convenient location to navigate to and from. We stayed in the downstairs apartment. Spacious two bedroom with living room, dinning room and kitchen. It is old, a bedroom doorknob came off in my hand on the second day, and there is some mold in the tub but everything else was extremely clean, and charming. They provided coffee and tea and a bottle of champagne and cookies to ring in the New Year! The kitchen had most everything you could need for basic cooking. The TV even had a couple of English channels not that we spent much time watching TV. I would come back.

Nice apartment. Great location. 2 min from metro. Received a very warm welcome by the hosts (Mr and Mrs Taxiarchoula) and they were very prompt in communications before the stay. Highly recommended.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

At our arrival a wine bottle was waiting for us.

The owner gave us some advice about what to do on the area

The flat is at less than 2minutes from the subway and is located on a quiet street. They are always security officers around because of an luxury hotel in front

Wonderful Athens getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Olive House for one week during our honeymoon. We really loved this apartment. First of all, it is very spacious (which is not common in Europe). There are two bedrooms and a nice sized kitchens (with dishes, pots and pans). There is also a very large balcony with a table that we could sit to eat breakfast at. The apartment is right by a police station, which made us feel very safe. It was also very easy to find as it is right by a metro stop. We were able to take the metro from the airport and found the apartment right away. It is also in a great location as it is only 3 stops away from the downtown area. There are also bus stations close by, and a great cheap gyro place about 3 minutes away.

When we arrived we were greeted by the owner's daughter with fresh flowers and a bottle of champagne. The apartment was very clean and all the appliances/amenities worked perfectly. Overall we would definitely stay here again and recommend the Olive House to anyone wanting to stay in Athens.
