  • Nuestra estadía en Atenas fue inmejorable. Pasamos unos días muy emocionantes y el apartamento fue funcional a nuestras necesidades. La ubicación es perfecta a poquísimas cuadras de los centros históricos y los puntos de atracción turísticas. Como también de lugares con ofertas gastronómicas interesantes como deliciosas. El apartamento resultó muy cómodo, los implementos funcionaron a la perfección, y no tuvimos ninguna preocupación respecto del lugar. Disfrutamos muchísimo de la casa y la recomendamos sinceramente. La atención del anfitrión fue buena como también las sugerencias respecto de la actividad en Atenas. Muchas Gracias por toda la atención brindada

  • Good Size apt, beds & pillows not our favorite. Tea & Greek coffee supplied, decent stores nearby to buy fruit/wine. Would prefer to have laundry soap offered, instead of shampoo. Sadly the terrace did not have a cover/awning, so we couldn't use it most of the day. Good location, 10 minute walk to great restaurants in front of Museum (Coffee Island for a great latte, God's for excellent Beef with Orzo) highly recommend doing museum before Acropolis, esp with kids.
    Thanks for easy transfers!

  • We had a wonderful time at this apartment. It was exactly as advertised, and perfect for our family. Our grown up boys did have to share a bed, but we knew that coming in. Three is also a big comfortable couch in the living room that could easily sleep another person. There is a nice terrace for sitting outside - the view is of the neighborhood and the balconies of the hotel across the street; the air conditioning worked fine in 100 degree heat, the bathroom was very nice, and the location was terrific. We walked everywhere. Under 10 minutes to the Acropolis Museum and the Plaka. A metro stop is just two blocks away, next to a nice local square and some great cafes for coffee and cheese pies in the morning. A supermarket is just another two blocks away a different direction. It is about a twenty minute walk up the hill to the Acropolis itself.

    Vassily and Helena arranged a number of things for us, which made our visit easy. They had us met us at the airport, including one son at 4 in the morning. They arranged a tour for us of The Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion at sunset with only a day's notice. And they helped us get to and from Delphi. They were absolutely dependable and responsive, available by phone at all times - including from a landline in the apartment.

    I would highly recommend renting any of the apartments that Helena and Vassily offer. They are thoroughly professional. It was also a great pleasure to get to know Vassily.

  • Helena and her husband are superhosts, no question about it. They are
    reliable, on time, helpful and friendly. This is the second time we stay in one of their places and we have been more than happy both times.

    This apartment was super!

    Thank you Helena!

  • Helena's apartment was perfect for exploring the must see Athens sights by foot within two days. It was a large and comfortable space, and within 5 blocks to the Plaka. Helena arranged for us which were great, and answered all of our questions promptly.

  • The host was very lovely and welcoming! The location was perfect because it was within walking distance from the Acropolis and next to a metro station for easy transportation. The air conditioning was a perfect getaway from the blistering heat of Greece and there was an elevator for easy access to the different floors. They pick us on the airport take take us to the apartment was a relieve from worry how to get there. Overall we were able to enjoy our stay in Greece pleasantly from this apartment.

  • Great little flat just down the road from the Acropolis and Plaka. Nice little bakeries and restaurants just around the corner too. Helena was quick and efficient in responding and Chrysa gave us a warm cheery Greek welcome! Great holiday, thanks guys!

  • L'appartement est bien localisé, bien éclairé, tranquille et près des sites antiques. Nous avons apprécié les nombreux guides touristiques laissés à notre usage sur la table à café, une excellente source d'information pour mieux planifier nos déplacements et y avons bien aimé notre séjour là.
    Vasilis nous a accueillis à l'aéroport dès notre arrivée et nous a expliqué le fonctionnement de l'appartement. Cependant à cause du manque de stationnement dans le quartier, il nous a laissés à la porte : nous aurions apprécié qu'il monte à l'appartement avec nous. L'appartement est bien, par contre une amélioration à la propreté et à l'entretien de l'appartement serait adéquate par comparaison à la quelque douzaine d'autres locations d'appartements que nous avons faites.

  • We are a family with 2 boys 9 & 6. This is an excellent apartment. It was very comfortable, clean and well equipped. It is very convenient for the Acropolis and many other sights and the location surprisingly quiet. It is also close to the Metro (Acropolis and Sygrou Fix). There were also some excellent (and not too touristy) restaurants nearby.
    We would strongly recommend that you have Vassili or Helena pick you up from the airport.
    We had a wonderful holiday in Athens. We really only used the apartment as a base but could not fault it.
