Incredibly spacious and beautifully decorated apartment. Great linen, plush towels and there were enough staples in the kitchen to have a simple breakfast and even cook dinner!
Location is brilliant. Great restaurants, bars/cafes, bakeries and shops within short distance and we felt very safe walking at night with 2 children!
Check in was seamless.
Thanks Michalia for sharing this gem.
We had a wonderful time at Michalia's apartment. We found it as described and as it's shown on the pictures. It was really clean and tidy. The location is superb and Michalia and her sister are superb hosts. I highly recommend it.
Michalia was very thoughtful on all our needs, specially when we arrived so late at night and she arranged to have her sister to meet us at her place with the keys. Also we needed and extra night added at the last minute and she responded immediately, helping us. Her place is as it shows on her pictures and the location is the best for every sighting, shopping and cafe hopping. It is also in a very safe place of Athens,not to mention very posh! We will recommend her beautiful place to anybody wanting to have few weeks in beautiful Athens.
Awesome apartment with great amenities. The location is perfect. The host was very nice and helpful.
The mansion is really beautiful! Good located, about 10 more minutes walking to the Syntagama Square and the subway station. The room is so nice and clean, we really love it! We haven't met Michalia, and her sister was waiting for us, told us everything, really nice. Highly recommend for Michalia's mansion!
My daughter and I have very happy memories of our month spent chez Michalia. No superlative is quite enough to describe her place. The apartment is so beautiful it's. . . wicked! We hope to return here often. Michalia is a lady of great discernment and good taste. Next time, just to make things perfect, we'll hire a cleaner to come in and clean once a week and change the sheets. But our first experience of staying here couldn't have been better. This is Kolonaki living at its best.
