Wonderful & spacious apartment - exactly as pictured and described -we were quite comfortable with 5 people. Kolonaki neighborhood is lovely - well-stocked gourmet deli around corner, great walk up Lykavittos Hill right there, plenty of cafés & restaurants. Loved being on a serene street and the walk to center of Athens. Host was very responsive & accommodating, very highly recommended!
Lovely apartment truly. Comfortable beds.
Great large balcony. Kolonaki is a
very hilly area. My elderly mother struggled a bit. So if you don't like hills stay in another district. Or there are cabs galore very cheap always going by apartment if walking isn't your thing. Kolonaki is very trendy with boutique style shops. Lycabettus hill is close by and worth visiting. Great little souvenir shop just below the hill. Gorgeous jewelry sold there.
Only gripe, I'd love more English channels on the TV to watch after a day of sightseeing to relax. Could only get two channels. Mtv and bbc news. But all in all great apartment in safe neighborhood. Thanks! !!☺
Our stay at Michalias apartment was wonderful. The location is superb with trendy shops and restaurants right outside the door. We arrived by train and took a cab to the apartment for about 10euro. We walked to the train on our way out which was a nice 30 minute walk. The apartment is listed as non-smoking, however it did smell like there had been smoking allowed at some point. Lots of smoking in Greece! Both bedrooms were nice and beds were quite comfortable. Perfect setup for two couples.
I ended up extending my stay again at Michalia's apartment. I can not speak highly enough of this apartment and its location. I have stayed at many Airbnb apartments and Michalia's dots her i's and crises her t's. Her attention to detail from her sheets, to cutlery, glassware, furniture is immaculate. Truly a clean and comfortable apartment with a wonderful energy. I cannot thank Michalia and her sister Marinella enough for making my stay in Athems so special. To read more details of her apartment, below I have written more.
I in whole had booked this apartment for 5 months Oct-March, I have just under 3 weeks remaining.
I have fallen in love with this apartment. It is situated in one of Athens cosmopolitan areas Kolonaki full of coffee shops, restaurants, bars and boutiques and walking distance to the Acropolis, Museums and many more. If you don't feel like walking cabs are always passing in front of the apartments building and can take you to where you need to go at a low cost.
The location is one of the best.
The apartment is equipped with everything I could need. Bedding is fantastic, kitchen fully equipped with all to be able to make grand meals to the simple toast and coffee, lounge room truly divine, the showers are fantastic and the apartment even has a washing machine, dryer and a dishwasher. This apartment is well secured and of high quality. Michalia's choice in her fine details of decorating is impeccable, it truly is luxurious. It also has a huge balcony. The bedding areas were quiet and you could make the rooms dark with bringing the shutters right down to have a great sleep in if wanted.
Michalia and her sister Marinella are truly wonderful and attended to my every need, communication was fast. Yet it was rare I needed them because I had all in the apartment, it is stocked very well. The air conditioning for use of heat or cold air works perfectly. Wifi is great and fast. The apartment is spotless, very clean and I was very house proud. Aesthetically this apartment is a beauty, and the energy within is wonderful, and spacious.
This apartment has made my stay in Athens truly special. I highly recommend this apartment 100% to all for short trips or longer stays. I truly will miss this apartment it made my stay in Athens even more special. This apartment will make your stay in Athens unforgettable, I would not hesitate in coming back to this apartment when I return to Athens.
I am grateful to Michalia for being so attentive to my every need. Like I mentioned earlier I will miss this apartment, it has become home away from home. That is exactly how you will feel in this apartment like it is your home. Truly divine!!
This apartment was perfect for us. First the basics. The beds are very comfortable, the air conditioning works well (didn't need to use the heat), the Wifi is fast and reliable, and the apartment is quiet. It is in a very good location less than 10 minutes from the closest Metro stop, although once we realized that taxis were so inexpensive and plentiful in Athens, we used them most of the time. You can get to most locations in the center city by cab for less than 5 Euros and in about the time that it takes to walk to the Metro, and you can usually get a taxi right outside of the door. Worst case its a two minute walk to Kolonaki Square to find one.
The kitchen is well set up for breakfast and lunch type preparation. We didn't attempt any major cooking, but I think that you could without much problem. There is a very nice farmer's market just a few blocks away on Friday mornings, and there are bakeries and food stores close at hand. There are also a number of good restaurants within walking distance.
The apartment is decorated very nicely with quality fixtures and materials, and a real artistic flair throughout. The rooms are of nice size and well proportioned, making the space very usable. Communications with Michalia were fast and easy, and she was responsive to any questions that we asked. We would not hesitate to stay there again, or to recommend this apartment to anyone planning a trip to Athens.

I renovated my apartment with personal care and attention to detail and I am so happy to open it up to Airbnb guests who appreciate good taste so they can experience a really nice neighborhood of Athens as a local. I wish them a wonderful stay!
