Incredible views in Athens, especially the Acropolis and Lycabettus two verandas of the apartment. The apartment is within walking distance of downtown and very close, 300 m to the metro station (red line), in a very quiet family neighborhood. All necessary shops (supermarket, bakery, grocery, pharmacy) are very close to the apartment. Very easy access to Athens airport (40 minutes) and the port of Piraeus (15 minutes) with the metro.
Great place with nice details from a welcome snack to a coffee maker. Kostas was very quick in his responses, and very helpful. Arranged for cabs when we needed. The neighbourhood had a great bakery and an excellent kebab shop, and other restaurants. Highly recommend this place.
When traveling, we enjoy staying in apartments located in residential neighborhoods in order to get a better feel for the city we are visiting. Kostas' apartment was everything we hoped it would be and more. He had one of his friends meet us at the metro station and from there It is an easy walk to the apartment. The metro, I should add, is easy to navigate and quickly takes you to restaurants, tourist spots and so on. Our advice is to buy the 5 day ticket for 9 euros-- unlimited rides during that time span. More about the apartment: Kostas includes everything you need-- coffee maker, microwave, washing machine, drying rack for clothes, nearly a full size refrigerator, and lots and lots of information about Athens as well as some spot on recommendations. Be sure to try The Balcony for dinner (one of his recommendations); you will be very happy you did. The neighborhood around the apartment is full of life. There is a market close by and 2 or 3 good and inexpensive places to eat if you decide one night to stay close to "home." And finally-- the view from the living room terrace is outstanding. Take it in with a cup of coffee in the morning or with a glass of wine at night; I guarantee it will be one of the highlights of your visit to Athens. We recommend this apartment highly. We've stayed in many VRBO apartments, and this one is among the best. And to top it off, Kostas is a very friendly host who is easy to communicate with during the time leading up to your trip and who genuinely wants you to have a great time while in "his" city.
We were happy that we booked Kostas's apartment for our four-day adventure exploring Athens before joining our voyages to Antiquity cruise. Everything worked perfectly, and we loved staying in this residential area with several good local eateries in the square and a fabulous bakery across the street that also sold great sandwiches, wine and beer. The metro station was nearby, and we were only four stops from the centre. Kostas was a charming and helpful host who answered every email within minutes. Thanks for your hospitality! Hope to visit again in the future.
The apartment was brilliant, well equipped, clean and comfortable with everything we needed. The views of the Acropolis and Parthenon from the balcony made it even more special. It was in a great location - very handy for the metro (just a few minutes walk) for getting to all the places we wanted to visit during our stay. The neighbourhood was great with friendly locals, supermarkets, grocers, tavernas and a rather lovely pastry shop!
We were so well looked after by Kostas; from his excellent instructions for getting from the airport, arranging for us to be met and escorted to the apartment, lots of really useful information about Athens - places to visit and eat, getting about, arranging a taxi for our transfer to the ferry port for our onward journey. Not to mention all his invaluable help with a slight hiccup we had on arrival - we couldn't have got through it without him (note of caution if you use the metro - keep tight hold of possessions, especially wallets!!).
Overall we had a brilliant stay in a fantastic apartment and were very well looked after by Kostas. We would have no hesitation in staying here again, and highly recommend the apartment. Thank you Kostas!
Wow we couldn't believe the views!!! This apartment was great for 4 adults - two slept in the fold out bed in the lounge room which was very comfortable and large. The unit is very close to the metro station few minutes walk and only 4 stops to city centre. We loved Athens and spent four great days exploring. Loved the quiet little area the apartment was in all the locals so friendly and we did eat locally which was great. Kostas provided lots of great information and was always available if we had a question. Would definitely recommend this apartment. Note the hair salon downstairs from the apartment gave us the best pedicure and manicure we have ever had and so cheap!!!
We loved staying in a local neighbourhood but so close to Athens centre (only 4 stops on the metro which is a 5minute walk from the apartment. Kostas, the owner, gave us lots of information before we came and we were met by his friend Christos and escorted to the apartment. The apartment is on the 7th floor - there's a lift - so the views are great. We sat on the large balcony every night and watched the lights come on at the Acropolis. there's a great vegetable market 10 minutes walk away, and cafes, bakeries (two), restaurant/bars - all within 5 minutes. And, of course, Athens is wonderful to visit. all the ancient sites are easily accessible - we used the hop on/hop off bus. An excellent five night stay.
The apartment is very close to the main archeological sites of Athens, the Acropolis, the old market, museums, etc.
