Walking distance to Syntagma, Plaka, Acropolis and to all transporation (Metro, bus, tram).
Après un tout petit couac lié à l'heure d'arrivée, tout s'est très bien passé. L'appartement correspond très bien aux photos. Il est idéalement situé, à quelques minutes de la place Syntagma et dans le quartier de Plaka, à 15 minutes à pied de l'Acropole (qu'on a le plaisir de voir par la fenêtre). Plein de restaurants à proximité. Nous reviendrons sans hésiter si nous repassons par Athènes!
We loved this apartment! My teenage daughter and I had 6 days there and didn't want to leave. Firstly, the location, minutes from Syntagma square, and from Plaka, with all the access to major attractions like the Acropolis, lots of cafes and restaurants and the main pedestrian shopping area. Then there's the view! From both the windows, it's the Acropolis, sunlit by day, floodlit by night , whatever you're doing, there it is. The apartment has absolutely everything you need, and is beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean, and the wifi is good. There are lovely artworks and feminine touches which made us feel really at home.
We did all our communications with Stathis, who was extremely helpful and responsive, and gave us lots of additional information as we asked for it. He also arranged for our taxis to and from the airport.We were welcomed at the apartment by the owner, Eugenia, who is very sweet and kind and speaks good English, and she told us what we needed to know on arrival. She also came to see us off, and promptly answered our emails.
Our time in Athens coincided with the closure of Greek banks and the huge rallies in Syntagma square, followed by the referendum,and although we were closely following what was happening, we always felt safe and looked after. The Greek people are amazing, friendly and relaxed and happy to discuss politics with an outsider like me. Stathis was particularly helpful in this respect, even though it was obviously a huge time in Greek history and people were understandably preoccupied with the unfolding situations. We did all our sightseeing as planned, and had no problems at all enjoying our holiday in Athens. I would encourage anyone considering a holiday in Greece to go for it!
I wouldn't hesitate to go again, and if I did, I'd be booking this apartment too! Thanks Stathis and Eugenia.
Fond memories shared at this loft apartment. It had everything we needed and expected and the photos were accurate. It was wonderful to have a clear view of the Acropolis and be within 2 minutes walk to Plaka central. We met with Eugenia (the owner) who gave us an introduction to everything and she was a delight. Such a delight that she let us have a later check out to one of us that wasn't feeling well.... this was more appreciated than she will ever understand. We also met Stathis at his travel company to assist us with purchasing ferry tickets to Sifnos. Stathis was also very prompt with any questions we had about Athens and also arranged for the taxi to the apartment from the airport. (Totally worth the 40 euros)
We have a great time the apartamento es perfectly located and with nice view. Price vs value was good.

Die wohnung ist klasse und super gelegen mit einer tollen aussicht. Es war alles vorhanden in der wohnung, sehr sauber und genau wie auf den fotos auffindbar.
El apartamento de Sthatis es maravilloso, luminoso, espacioso, cuidado, con muebles bonitos...todo funciona muy bien y la ubicación es perfecta. Pero si tuviera que quedarme sólo con una cosa, sin duda elijo la vista de la Acrópolis en todo su esplendor. Es un sueño!! Muchas gracias Sthatis, tu apartamento es altamente recomendable para cualquier visitante que quiera hacer su estancia en Atenas un poquito más agradable y cómoda.
