  • Elena was a super helpful host. She met us to welcome and show us around the apartment, and afterwards was only an email away if we had any questions! Even after we left, she offered to help us with recommendations for the rest of our Greece trip. The apartment itself gives you a feeling of what it might be like to live in Athens. The location was absolutely perfect, couldn't imagine a better setting. Easy to walk to just about anything. Thanks so much Elena!

  • My family of 4 stayed at Elena and George's apartment for 3 nights. The apartment is in a fantastic spot we walked to the Acropolis in 10 minutes, and spent our entire time in Athens walking to great taverns, shopping and historical sites all within walking distance. The apartment was clean and big for a family of 4. We did not get a chance torment Elena but her emails and communication was excellent with great tips on where to go and how to get to the apartment. We did meet her lovely husband George who met us on arrival showed us around and gave us great suggestions on where to shop/eat etc..
    Overall a fantastic experience for us, thank you Elena and George we highly recommend you both and your apartment to anyone wanting to stay in Athens.

  • Great location in the heart of Athens with plenty of amenities (A/C and Wi-Fi) and lots of space inside the apartment. Elena's husband George was very friendly and helpful and a pleasure to meet. We would thoroughly recommend to anyone travelling to the heart of Athens.

  • The house is very clean, spacious, well furnished, and strategically located near the Acropolis and only 7-8 minute walk from Thissio metro station. George kindly met us up when we arrived and kindly explained in detail about the house and gave us some useful tips about the neighborhood. There are many tour brochures and information in the house. And the wi-fi was very fast. We enjoyed our stay at Elena's very much.

    The only thing that we should have told Elena ahead of time is that we would need two sets of keys to the apartment, since my friend and I had different daily programs, so that Elena could have prepared a copy.

  • Elena and George’s apartment is huge and perfectly located on a wonderful pedestrian street in Thissio, which has become my dream neighbourhood in Athens. It is close to the Acropolis and Filipapou (where you can wander in peace on a sunny afternoon), near Monistiraki and Plaka, or five minutes in the other direction to Gazi for some of the best food in town. Of course we also really enjoyed the apartment, the wonderful living space, the comfortable bed, the work space, and more. Elena and George’s concern for their guests is both friendly and professional and we are so glad we found them. No doubt we will be back.

  • Fantastic flat in a really good location (the street it is on is fully pedestrianised, with lots of good bars). Ideal base for exploring the heart of Athens.

    Thanks for your kind words. You are welcome back anytime!

  • Dear Elena & George, we had a fantastic stay thanks to the ideal location of your flat, but even more thanks to your warm welcome, friendly communication and insider tips. We are already looking forward to our next visit!

  • Elena and George couldn't have been kinder. Great suggestions of things to do, places to eat. The apartment felt like they had left on vacation and had everything you could possibly need to be comfortable. Highly recommend!

  • Appartement (très) agréable et calme, dans une rue et un quartier parfaits. Calmes au niveau de l'appartement, plus animés un pâté plus loin: bars sympas, supérettes, boulangeries, restos. A deux pas de l'Acropole, de Monastiraki et de Gazi. A proximité du métro Théseion (Pirée et Musée national directs). Enfin, je ne veux pas trop en dire de bien, je détesterai retourner à Athènes est en être privé par son succès.
    Ce second séjour fut à nouveau une réussite, et ce lieu n'y fut pas pour rien: Mille Mercis Elena!
