Athens, Attica
An apartment in a location to dream about - and our all-inclusive prices are very competitive.<BR>There are superb views over the nearby Ancient Agora and its surroundings, including the Acropolis and Filopappou Hill. After climbing the 63 stairs - sorry, there's no lift - relax and take in the view from the 3rd floor balcony. There's an air-conditioned living room with a double bed-settee, a tiny kitchen with full sized cooker and refrigerator, and a cloakroom/WC. Upstairs is a double bedroom, again air-conditioned, a full bathroom, and another balcony with even more impressive views. Wi-fi is provided free of charge.<BR>All of the photographs included in this listing were taken within 300 metres of the apartment, that's to say no more than 2 or 3 minutes walk.<BR>The only disadvantage of staying right i...

In the center of Athens, close to - and with beautiful view to - Acropolis. Walking distance to many historical monuments as well as to metro, lots of tavernas etc this flat gives you the possibility of a rich stay in the historical centre of Athens. Chris picked us up in the airport, if first time in Athens. We found...

Management response:

Sorry about the smell from the silversmith. Maybe it was just in the staircase? In case not, we'll try to improve the seal on the apartment door. We're glad it didn't spoil your stay. Thanks for taking the time to post your review.

As a previous guest said, "this not the Ritz", but it is in the best location for everything going on in the city. 5 minutes walk to Monastiraki, 15 minutes to Syntagma, 15 minutes to the Parthenon, 10 minutes to the central market etc. The apartment was spotless when we arrived, and we enjoyed a wonderful week here. Split over...

From the moment you contact them about the apartment, Chris is helping you. Helping you plan your itinerary if needed and helping you get to the apartment. I have no idea how many time he responded to me answering my questions. Achilleas picked us up at the airport at midnight, was so happy that worked out so easily. Recommend this...

Management response:

Thanks for your great new idea for a marketing slogan "Not-the-Athens-Ritz-but-exactly-where-you-want-to-be-and-not-bad-anyway"! We're glad that you both enjoyed your time with us. I keep everything on file and I reckon you asked for additional information around 20 times. Pleased to be of assistance and glad everything worked out.

About the neighborhood
You'll be just seconds away from a huge range of places to eat and drink. Best of all, you'll be only a few minutes walk away from the Ancient Agora, the ancient Kerameikos cemetery, the Plaka tourist district at the foot of the Acropolis, the famous Monastiraki Flea Market, and the Ermou Street shops. The Acropolis itself is just ten minutes walk away along one of many local traffic-free roads.
No more than 20 metres from the apartment you can jump on the Athens tour buses or the little motor train that runs around the narrow Plaka streets.
There's a lively night life for those who want it, either in the small clubs in the immediate Psiri neighbourhood, or in the bigger clubs 10 minutes walk away in Gazi.
Only 200 metres away is Thissio metro station with direct access to...
