My wife and I stayed at Alexandra's wonderful apartment for nine days in late Sep (the weather was great) and we enjoyed every minute of our stay. It's in an ideal location---an easy walk to the Thissio metro stop, which will take you almost any-where in the city and to Piraeus as well; or, walk just a little further and you are at the flea market on the edge of Monastiraki; and very near the entrance to the Agora, which you can walk through to reach the entrance to the Acropolis; all in all, it's less than a mile walk from the apartment to the Parthenon. It is also little more than a half-mile walk to the bustling Central Market; and, In the immediate neighborhood there are at least three quality restaurants that we liked.
The apartment itself is very nice---it has all of the amenities that you need and even has a classic view of the Parthenon from the balcony---but perhaps the best thing about it is that it comes with Alexandra herself---she lives right upstairs. She was very welcoming, with gifts and information and advice, and always quite helpful and accommodating. She really went out of her way to treat us as friends, making our visit even more memorable.
Amazing location, close to restaurants, bars and coffee places, easy to get around by foot or metro. Perfect for a family with 2 children or 4 friends. The apartment is very big and has a well equipped kitchen, air-co, cosy living room, perfect shower, modern design. Alexandra was more than helpful during our stay, i would recommend her place to everybody who's visiting Athens.
I warmly recommend this place. The appartment is very nice and the host fantastic. It's well located at only 15 minutes walk of the Parthenon and in Psiri neighbourhood.
We had a great time in the large and cozy duplex apartment of Alexandra. The view on the Acropolis is just fantastic. We did not have the opportunity to meet each other. But Alexandra was very helpful with full of good suggestions of restaurants, things to do and to see. We surely can recommend this place, if you would like to spend some time in Athens.
The location of this apartment is ideally situated. From the balcony you can see the Acropolis! You can walk in less than 20 minutes to this magnificient landmark! There are also metro stations close by if you want to explore the city furthermore. The neighborhood Kerameikos is vibrant and upcoming with lots of nice small restaurants and cafe’s.
The apartment is original and tastefully decorated, mixing 70’s with modern style. There is a good quality coffee machine and a kitchen, the kitchen is fully equipped.
The central location is perfect for a city break to Athens - historic Athens is on the doorstep! The apartment itself is stunning - a modern, arty, well designed apartment that makes you want to own it yourself. Alex (the owner) even invited us for drinks in the penthouse apartment that has the most breathtaking view of Acropolis - for that alone it was worth the stay!! I have already re-booked for me next visit.
Alexandra's apartment was renovated by an architect in a very interesting way that resulted in a a very comfortable, practical place to stay with alot of natural light, no noise, side views of the Parthenon and next to where ll the action is!
