Walking distance from Evangelismos metro station. About a 20 minute walk from Constitution Square and Parliament. Small forest ideal for walks within a few steps of the building's front door. Walking distance from upscale shopping in Kolonaki & very close to Mount Lycabettus funicular.
The apartment can be reached by taxi, or by an uphill walk from Evangelismos metro station (in less than 10 minutes).
IMPORTANT NOTE & TIP:
On arrival, if you have a lot of luggage, we highly recommend a taxi, as the walk from the metro station is uphill.
If you do arrive by metro, about 50m along Marasli St you will find a taxi rank outside the hospital. The taxi fare to the apartment from there will not be more than Euros 3.50 and will save you walking up the hill.
A classy, upscale and quiet neighbourhood, yet very close to the sites and within waking distance of a buzzing square with shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. One of the best outdoor cinemas also within walking distance!
The nearest metro station is less than a 10min walk away.
The latest arrival at the apartment we can accommodate is 10pm. We will only negotiate later arrivals for stays longer than 1 week, depending on our availability.
Please leave the flat as you found it
Please respect your neighbors, especially during "quiet time" between 3pm and 5pm and again from 11pm - 7am
No late night loud music please
Smoking only on the balcony

The apartment was cosy and clean, exactly like the fotos. It has everything you might need (I mean really everything!!). You can make coffee (all kinds of coffe :) or tea)!! We hadn't met the owners but a neighbor welcome us and mrs daniella called us to make sure that everything is ok.
The only problem we had is that the hot water was more like warm but if it was important we could call the owners i'm sure they could fix it. The neighbourhood is really nice, quite and safe. You have to climb a lot of stairs to get there but it's close to the metro station and the center.
We had a great stay in the apartment.
Its quite central and there also some restaurants around the area. The apartment was clean and super cosy.
Its a little bit up the hill but thats okey as long you are in shape.
Ο κ. Βασίλης είναι ευγενέστατος και πολύ φιλόξενος. Μας παρείχε δωρεάν μάλιστα και κάποιες βασικές προμήθειες όπως καφέ, ζάχαρη νερό, αναψυκτικά κ.α.Το σπίτι έχει όλα τα απαραίτητα για να είναι κανείς ξέγνοιαστος στις διακοπές του όπως πιστολάκι για τα μαλλιά, διάφορα σκεύη μαγειρικής, σκεπάσματα, πετσέτες κτλ. Στην κουζίνα εκτός από την κεραμική εστία και το ψυγείο υπήρχαν εσπρεσσιέρα με κάψουλες, καφετιέρα φίλτρου βραστήρας ακόμα και φρυγανιέρα. Γενικά στο σπίτι τρώει κανείς άνετα όλα τα γεύματα. Ο χώρος είναι άνετος και ευχάριστος ώστε αν επιλέξει κανείς να μείνει μέσα για να ξεκουραστεί θα νιώσει οικεία και καθόλου περιορισμένος.Το σπίτι δεν είναι κρύο και αν χρειαστεί θερμαίνεται γρήγορα με ατομική θέρμανση. Το κρεβάτι ήταν άνετο και για τα δυο άτομα. Η περιγραφή στην ιστοσελίδα ανταποκρίνεται στην πραγματικότητα και επιπλέον υπάρχει και μια μικρή βιβλιοθήκη στο σπίτι με βιβλία. Η πολυκατοικία όπως και η γειτονιά ήταν ήσυχη. Είμαι πολύ ευχαριστημένος.
Mr. Vassilis and his wife Daniella were so wonderful and attentive. I really feel blessed for having chosen this apartment and for having been hosted by them. For those who value comfort, commodity and have an accurate sense for an aesthetic living style I certainly recommend this flat. Beautifully decorated, nearby everything and located in an upper class neighborhood recognized by its taste for culture, art, fashion and gastronomy.
Our Stay was Fantastic Thank you Vassilis! Amazing peaceful Location walking distance from the city centre and all important tourist locations in Athens. On a Hill but no issues for us . Apartment is modern ,clean and well equipped with all cooking utensils.
The apartment was perfect for my husband and I. It looks exactly what it shows in the photos. So modern and cute! Kitchen came equipped with your plates, cutlery and cups. The place was very clean. The apartment is located on a hill so be prepared to get some good steps in. (great workout) We never got to meet Vassilis because our flight was very late. But a friend of his from the building was able to meet us and she was great! Vassilis was very quick at responding on e-mails.
Vassilis and his wife Daniella were wonderful and our stay was great! We loved the apartment--it was super comfortable, clean, had everything we needed, and we really enjoyed the books and Athens guides laid out. The location is nice and the neighborhood is very cute. There are a lot of restaurants and shops nearby. The apartment is located at the top of a very steep hill with the metro at the bottom--we walked to and from the metro most of the time, but taxis are very affordable if you don't feel like walking. We had a great time and would love to stay again if we return to Athens!
A hospitality professional, with a passion for meeting people from all corners of the world! Love to cook, and enjoy the company of friends and my kids!
Can't live without coffee, pasta and my cufflinks. I absolutely love to travel and favorite destinations so far have been Italy, Dubai and Norway, to name just a few.
I very much look forward to welcoming visitors to the apartment and helping them make the most of their stay in Athens!
NOTE: from 1st May to 15th October 2014, the apartment will be managed by my wife, Daniella, as I will be working in Santorini during the summer season.
