Clean, Comfortable, Convenient

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was wonderful. The location is perfect for those who want to be within walking distance of the Acropolis and Ancient Agora, but who want to be removed from all the tourist traps. This apartment is on a street with several cafes/bars populated by locals, where it's easy to pick up a refreshment or sit down to a lovely, relaxing dinner. We three women felt very safe both in the apartment and on the street. And our hosts were amazing, from their greetings when we arrived to their help with our questions during our stay. The apartment itself is very comfortable. Nothing fancy, but clean and spacious with deliciously comfortable beds. We were spoiled for the rest of our trip!

Excellent Stay

  • 4 of 5

Very enjoyable and comfortable stay for a family of 5 in July of 2015. The location is terrific--in more of a neighbourhood which allowed easy access to local eateries, etc. and felt more authentic/less touristy...but was just an approx 15 minute walk to the Acropolis, etc. Boutique Athens was very helpful...from arranging a taxi van from the airport to giving a detailed explanation of the flat and the local area. Our only complaint was that the shower drain backed up when the clothes washer was running. Highly recommend this place--would stay there again for sure.

excellent apartment in central but quiet athens

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent apartment in a central but quiet location in Athens. The apartment is in great condition and equipped with modern appliances. The descriptions are accurate, beds are comfortable (important!!) and air condition worked well (crucial in august in Athens).

But what really stood out during our stay was the helpful and friendly attitude of Lia - she met us when we arrived and literally gave us the tour of the neighborhood (bakery, grocery, metro, acropolis etc). She was also very flexible with our checkout time which was convenient for late afternoon ferry to the islands...

In sum - we were positively surprised from Athens (people warned us that august can be horrible - it wasn't!) and loved the apartment. Thanks Lia

Outstanding stay!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, 18 month old baby, and parents stayed here for four nights. We could not have asked for more! The communication regarding numerous aspects of before and during our arrival were timely and complete. Transportation was arranged, a lengthy write-up of vegetarian options in the area provided, along with help for ferry tickets and car rental. Our baby had a sleeping cot and a high chair. The accommodation is spacious, has all the amenities one could ask for, and is located in the Thissio area which is a walk along a promenade to the Acropolis. The tavernas up the street have outdoor seating and there's a grocery store a block away. It felt like we had a familiar relationship with many people after a few days at the apartment. We will definitely return and are grateful for the wonderful experience!

central Athens apartment

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely apartment. Lia met us at the metro station and gave us lots of good advice. The apartment was just the right size for our family and is clean, comfortable and well equipped. It is in a great location, quiet at night and we were able to walk everywhere. There are lots of local places to eat and drink and some lively bars for the younger crew. If you are in Athens for a sightseeing break then the paved path around the Acropolis starts just at the end of the road.

KR1 is located in the inner city area known as Thission. Thission is in the middle of the areas we now call the ancient world of Athens.

Thission houses the best-preserved temple of Classic Antiquity, the temple of Hephaestus. Here, the god of fire and metal Hephaestus was co-worshipped with Goddess Athena who was the guardian of the city of Athens. They were both the protectors of the arts and crafts and especially of the metallurgists and ceramists.

This temple is the first of the works proposed by Pericles. Building began even before the Parthenon!

KR1 is a 3 minute walk from this beautiful temple. And from here the city of Athens has created a walkway to the other great temple of antiquity, the Parthenon and the Acropolis. The stroll to the Acropolis past some of the most amazing areas of Hellenic antiquity takes about ten minutes.

Thission is full of galleries, tavernas and small museums. And yet somehow has avoided the tourist tackiness of areas such as Plaka.
