About This Listing
Spacious first floor 2 bedroom apartment perfectly located for sightseeing, transport and shopping. Fully self contained with an eat in kitchen. The apartment is large with 2 separate bedrooms to the living area. The second bedroom is the 'meditation room and library' photo where we have 2 collapsible single beds separate to the library area. The apartment is on the first floor with no lift.
Central to all that Athens has to offer with easy access to transport, including Monastiraki station, buses and taxis. Convenient to cafes and restaurants with a cafe/bar opposite serving home made local food and authentic Greek coffee and wine, among many other things... or just grab a takeaway and sit on your balcony and watch the Athens activity go by. The apartment block is a modernized Art Deco four storey apartment block central to the Plakka, the markets, museums and Evripidou Street, the designers' shopping strip. You'll just love being totally in the thick of it all!
Please treat the place with respect, as you would your own home. It is a great apartment so please look after it as well.
We really loved our stay in Lenka & Tamara's place. It was very clean, very well equiped and very nicely furnished. The good surprise was the size of the rooms : really big and spacious with and XL bed in the main bedroom. Though the flat has no air conditionning, it was cool enough thanks to the numerous fans.
The location is also perfect : very close to everything (pedestrian shopping street, Plaka, Acropolis) so it's possible to come down for an hour or two, come back to the flat to rest and get away from the heat and got out again later when it's cooler.
Last good point : the very good and very cheap place to eat downstairs, at the corner of the street.
This apartment was even bigger than we thought it would be, and Tamara had yogurt, milk and juice in the fridge for us. The washer and dryer were also a treat! The location is excellent - right in the middle of a terrific area but not right on the busiest streets. There are excellent restaurants and bars just a block away. It was a little tricky for the taxi to find the location, so public transportation is probably the best way to access the space. My adult children noted that there's an excellent CD selection, and I enjoyed the spare guide books left from previous visitors.
Tamara was quick to respond to our texts and calls. We found the apartment just as expected, in the perfect location for us, with yogurt waiting in the frig -- just the thing my pregnant daughter craved!
The directions and notes on the apartment and neighborhood were all accurate and thoughtful. We couldn't be happier with our stay! There was an electrical malfunction, and Tamara located an electrician on a Saturday afternoon who came and repaired things promptly. Much appreciated!
Unfortunately we had some travel mishaps that made us miss a night. We really only were there long enough for a quick sleep and an early morning departure. The beds were comfortable and the space was nice :)
Great host & apartment!!!
My family of 4 full adults stayed at the apartment.
Our host, Tamara was so kind that she welcomed us even at our late arrival at 24:00 hour!! She also gave us helpful information about surroundings.
Her apartment was clean, spacious for my family and had everything we could think of: washing machine, hair dryer, various spicies for cooking, etc. The apartment is located at the very center of the city and many tourist spots are in walkable distance. At the same time, since it is located at the center, it could be a bit noisy at night though it didn't last whole night.
I would definitely book her apartment if I get to go Athens again.
Het appartement is perfect qua locatie, ruimte en sfeer. We hebben alles lopend in Athene bekeken vanuit het appartement. De locatie is centraal maar juist net niet heel toeristisch wat het ontspannen en interessanter maakt. Probeer vooral de wraps van de overbuurman. Het balkon is geweldig. Wij hebben er elke keer gegeten. Het huis is super schoon en van alle gemakken voorzien. Het tweepersoonsbed is het lekkerste bed dat we hebben gehad van onze 6 locaties in Griekenland. De kinderen sliepen op de twee bedden in de meditatieruimte en vonden deze ook heerlijk slapen. Het welkom was warm en hartelijk. Tamara stond ons buiten op te wachten zodat we niet hoefden te zoeken naar de ingang. Ze had duidelijke praktische informatie over de metro en waar we supermarkten konden vinden. Ik kan niet anders zeggen dan een aanrader. Fijn dat Lenka en Tamara ons zo de mogelijkheid hebben gegeven om Athene op een relaxte manier te ontdekken. Het was een mooie afsluiting van onze rondreis.
About the Host, Lenka & Tamara
Tamara and I have been friends for a number of years. We both run our own businesses. Mine is in interior design and Tamara teaches sewing. We both love the beach and being at opposite ends of the hemisphere when I’m swimming Tamara is in a woolen coat and when Tamara is swimming I’m in my neck to knees. In Tamara’s spare time you’ll find her frolicking on one of Athens’ beautiful beaches. If you are lucky she may even share with you her special swimming spots!
