Helena and her team were very efficient and helpful, providing excellent service, including a cot for our baby. The apartment is clean and comfortable and quiet by Athenian standards. The cooking equipment is rather basic but adequate for making breakfast or a quick meal. It should be noted that if you use both bedrooms there is no living room as the front room/second bedroom is the living room (our baby daughter was sleeping there so this room was unavailable during her sleeping hours). This said the back balcony is narrow but pleasant with a nice view onto old trees and can be used to sit out on in the evenings in the summer. Getting into the center is easy - we used the tram and metro, not the bus - and we could get anywhere we wanted in 20 to 40 minutes. What is lacking in the apartment is any information about the neighborhood: where to find nice places to eat, or a bigger supermarket than the one 2 blocks from the apartment. I suppose most people simply use this as a basis to visit the center, but if you do want to eat out not too far from the apartment, it isn't easy to find a good taverna in this residential area if nobody gives you tips.
Chyrissa was a pleasant surprise after our ferry ride. The place was neat and ready for us! Even had a nice bottle of wine waiting for us. Not exactly like the photos but still had everything we were looking for. It was warm weather and we slept with the windows open and got eaten by bugs. Not their fault. Overall nice place!
I used the apartment to host myself and my dad for four days - during our city-trip to Athens. The listing turned out to be excellent for our purpose. The space is fine, the interior is sufficient, the location is okay. Basically as long as you don't expect luxury then this listing will do.
Just so you are prepared: When you book with this group, you get overloaded with info messages on all kinds of matters. Some might even come as frightening, cause of e.g. the house rules written in capital letters. But don't panic, they do it with the best intentions.
We have been warmly welcomed to the apartment which is conform to the description. The area is nice, not far from the center of Athens in the quiet district of Nea Smirni. We have spent one week there during Christmas period and even during this special time, the owner was very reactive. Not luxury but good experience at correct price.
We had a great experience staying in this apartment in Nea Smirni. Helena, Chrissa, and staff made us feel very welcome, and communication with them was excellent. The shuttle pick up and drop off at the airport was a lifesaver, as we had a lot of luggage, early morning flights, and a baby. The apartment was exactly as described. It was well stocked with everything we needed, and even was accommodating for my baby by having a crib/playpen. Apparently we could have even borrowed a stroller too. Having air conditioning was wonderful as we weren't used to the heat, and kitchen and washing machine made it much easier to travel to Athens as a family. The location was quiet but easy to get to all the main sights in Athens by bus or tram. There were lots of restaurants, parks and playgrounds, and grocery store right nearby. I would recommend this apartment to anyone.
We enjoyed our stay in the apartment. The location is very convenient near the tram stop but not so touristy. The square is very busy at night with lots of nice coffee shops and restaurants. we found the best pork gyro souvlaki here and a nice bakery to have our breakfast daily. We also really enjoyed walking through the nearby park to the square and tram station everyday where we can see lots of local people jogging and kids playing.
