We also appreciated the pre-organised taxi from the airport. The immediate neighbourhood had some nice restaurants, and was within a short walk to the metro station to the coast, as well as being walking distance from the city centre.

Flat very clean and spacious, owner very helpful and friendly. Pool and balcony area very pleasant. Only negatives are bathroom is very small and second bedroom area lacks privacy as it does not have any doors to it. Overall a very enjoyable visit to Athens.

It was comfortable and in an excellent location. The beach was a 10 minute walk away and it was very close to public transport, which made getting around really easy. Lots of nice places to eat out, just around the corner too. Would recommend to anyone looking for a break in Athens.
