About this listing
This is a 75-m2-one bedroom penthouse apartment- the only one on the 6th floor- with a generous balcony on the dining room/ library side and a small balcony off the kitchen in the back. Located in the Kolonaki neighborhood, a stone's throw from the best cafes and bars, around the corner from the Filion cafe for example, a watering hole for the more intellectual Kolonaki set and a great place to sit and watch the Athenian world go by. The location is also ideal for all destinations in the city center-just minutes away from both metro lines and walking distance (about 20 min.) from the historic Plaka and also from the central fish and meat markets of Athinas street- one of my favorite places on this earth, a heaven for anyone interested in cooking. In spite of being in the center of the city (on Solonos St- a busy thoroughfare) it is set back from the street and quiet and bright. I have lived in the flat for almost 20 years and love its energy and beauty. It is an artistically decorated spacious one bedroom flat for 2 people.
The apartment was excellent and exactly as described.
It was clean and tastefully decorated with interesting artwork and a lovely balcony garden. The air conditioning worked well in the August heat of Athens.
The host was very helpful. The location is convenient for all Athens has to offer and close to public transport. It was reasonably priced given it's in Kolonaki. I would certainly stay again next time I'm in Athens.
Le logement est tout à fait fidèle à sa description, il est vivant, joliment décoré, on s'y sent bien pour y vivre.Nous avons été accueilli par la dame de ménage, son mari et son fils qui nous ont bien expliqué le fonctionnement du logement.Tout était très (website hidden) est très bien situé, tout près d'une station de métro très centrale et près des sites principaux, à 10- 15 minutes de beaucoup de lieux à visiter.Nous avons trouvé de quoi faire un premier repas dans le frigidaire. Il y a une grande terrasse mais il faisait très chaud et nous n'en avons pas (website hidden) rue est bruyante mais la chambre à coucher donne sur une cours très tranquille, on y dort bien.
Anna was a wonderful and a generous host. I felt very welcome from the moment I've arrived. In reality the apartment looks even better than on the pictures, and has a very nice authentic vibe to it. It is also quite comfortable, and the balcony full of plants is paradise itself. While I was in Athens for work, having breakfasts there certainly felt like vacation. The location is also very convenient, about 5 minutes from the metro, a nice selection of restaurants not farther than one block, including a vegetarian one. Great vintage-styled coffee place around the corner.
A great top-floor apartment at the edge of Kolonaki, near the Panepistimiou Metro Station. Lots of light in all rooms, and the balcony features a beautiful garden of potted plants. The kitchen is lovely and plenty big... and both the kitchen and bedroom are very quiet (they're in the back). It's the type of apartment that you want to linger in... it's so comfortable, you won't want to leave. Artwork is everywhere, and the owner and cleaning lady do everything possible to make you feel welcome. A great upscale bakery is a block away, and the green-grocer (manavys in Greek) one block toward Kolonaki square has amazing fruits and veggies. A few minor problems: Water pressure is low in shower and bath combo.... there is noise from the busy street in living room and dining room (none in bedroom). Alarms from cars and businesses go off 2-3 times a day (it's an urban environment.) Front door locks are cumbersome, so it takes too much time to enter and exit apartment. Aside from these small issues, it's a fantastic apartment.
We had a fantastic time in Anna's apartment. It's very well appointed, had everything we needed. It's very near the centre and was also near my son's apartment so suited us well. Athens is a huge, busy and vibrant city. We shall be back.
Anna était très sympathique , nous a donné des bons conseils par a rapport a Athènes, l'appartement était simple mais très sympathique et charmant, décorée avec beaucoup de sensibilité et dégageait une très bonne énergie!On avait du plaisir a rester dans l'appartement aussi, une super terrasse avec des oliviers et jasmins en fleurs, qui sentaient très bon!Un vrai plaisir...
La localisation était bien, à +-10 min du centre à pied, métro pas (website hidden) rue était un peu bruyante mais n'arrivait pas a nous déranger, la chambre est dans le coté cour,tranquille, on se réveille avec les oiseaux. C'était un plaisir de passer ces 4 jours chez Anna.
About the Host, Anna
I am an artist working for a period in Italy and am looking for people that are staying in Athens and will appreciate the personal touches of the flat, the sunny comfortable spaces and the lovely veranda with a small garden.
