A truly lovely spacious apartment with beautiful timber in-lay flooring and views to the Acropolis from lounge, kitchen and large balcony (facing south so doesn't get full summer sun which was a bonus). Communication and information provided by Dimitrios was excellent. We invited him to chat with us on the balcony one night and learnt a lot about Athens history and culture. He is enthusiastic and delightful!
First, the view from this apartment is astounding. Imagine seeing the Acropolis every time you sit on the porch! The apartment is at walking distance to everything you would need: supermarkets, dining, shops, pharmacy, buses, metro, taxis. The apartment itself is scrupulously clean, very spacious and comfortable. Its like a home away from home. It was also extremely private and we felt very safe and secure.
The host needs special mention. Dimitrios arranged for our transport from the airport, recommended places to visit, including spas, and each day provided extremely useful ideas on activities. He helped us to have a most wonderful experience during our stay.
We stayed at this accom for 2 nights on our visit to Athens. Such a great start to the holiday. Dimitrios the host was very attentive both prior to and during the stay. He had maps and plans made up for people to help them decide what to do and where to go. He even walked us to an area of restaurants etc near the aprtment where we could get food late at night . Didn't realise Athens comes alive late at night .
The apartment is spacious, very clean and the large balcony with the view of the Acropolis is amazing. Had a great stay and everything is walkable from the apartment. Would highly recommend it. Thanks again to Dimitrios and his dad for all the help
This Apartment was amazing
The owner was very helpful prior to arrival.He made arrangements for transport from the port and to the airport on departure.He was waiting on the sidewalk to greet us and carried our luggage in. The apartment is a restored unit at the top of a restored building.It has everything you need for a comfortable stay and seems very well equipped.The best part of the apartment is the large balcony which faces the Acropolis in front and sunsets on the other side. We spent all our time sitting out there,either with coffee in the morning or wine in the evening. It overlooks the archaeological museum and is a block from a bus stop. If you are mobile it is within a straight line walk to most attractions in the city. It is away from the chaos of the tourist areas and is very peaceful at night. Dimitrios provided a number of personally made maps. Each one identified local restaurants,shops,attractions,bars,even comic book shops.We ate at his recommended local restaurants and were very impressed with the food quality and the price.We did not feel like tourists. We shopped at his recommended stores and were impressed with the quality and prices there too. There were not alot of reviews of this apartment when we booked , so we were kind of taking a chance but we could not be more pleased.
Dimitrios was the perfect host. He arranged a cab to meet us at the airport. The apartment was well appointed with everything we could ask for. Especially enjoyed sitting on the porch in the evening with a glass of wine and looking at the Acropolis and the Hill of the Nymphs. Dimitrios was available for any questions we have, and we enjoyed making use of his maps where he detailed restaurants that we would never have chanced upon just a few steps away from the apartment. All the major sites were accessible by a short walk in any direction.
We would recommend this apartment with it's art deco design from the 1930's very highly.
The apartment is as like the photos and very very clean. The building where is located is beautiful and antique,in the front of the national archeological museum. The apartment is very sunny, and the best part is the balcony that has a super, incredible view to Acropolis of Athens and Lycabettus hill! Dimitris, the owner is very friendly and he will help you to organise your stay in the best way! You are in the center of Athens, is easy to get at any place! Highly reccomended. Thank you Dimitris, we wish you the best! See you next time!
