We only stayed one night but had such a warm welcome.
Helena and her lovely Family put so much effort in giving good advices and tips for the stay in greece, we wished we could stay longer.
The flat is beautiful, nice view, great terrace and equiped with everything you could need.
And, as a Bonus, the Kebab downstairs is absolutely delicious!
Helena And her husband both of them were so kind and welcomed us. Her husband explained us everything. He kindly took us to the port of Piraeus by his car.
The restaurant just infront of room was the best resto in Athens!!!
We can walk to the beach easily as well by throughing local area.
I don't hesitate to recommend to stay their room.
The host made me feel extremely welcome in their very cute apartment and even invited me down to the their apartment for a BBQ/celebration. I am really glad that we went down stairs. Not only did I get to experience the Greek customs going on that particular day, I also got to taste some home made, authentic Greek BBQ and meet some really nice people! Helena and her husband offered to help me with anything during my stay and pointed out the location of things in the neighborhood and other sites to see. I actually stayed her for 2 out of the 5 days that I was in Athens. I stayed at a hotel in the city center the last 3 days and with a few of being there I regretted leaving the apartment. The apartment was much quieter and the access to things was better as far as "off the beaten path" restaurants and shops. I didn't feel "brow beaten" like you can feel in the very touristy areas of the city center. I had my small baby and the space was great so that I wasn't concerned about someone hearing her cry when she wakes up in the middle of the night. I had an awesome time there and I hope to come back again in a few months to go out to some of the islands!
I liaised extensively with Helena before and during our drive from our house in the Peloponnese and she was very helpful in terms of directions. Vassilis met us on arrival and gave us a very full run-down of the facilities in the flat (including their amazing collection of DVDs which we could watch on their flat-screen tv) and in the area, including supermarkets and tavernas. We felt Helena and Vassilis were on hand if we needed them but we were left to our own devices otherwise, which is what we preferred. We made good use of the Wifi connection.
The apartment is on the 5th floor of the building, reached by a lift to the 4th floor and then an easy walk up to the 5th. It is well equipped and very comfortable with everyone you need for a stay of several days. We were there because my husband was having an operation at a nearby hospital and as we had to unexpectedly extend our day by 2 days, the privacy and comfort of the flat was very welcome - it felt like a home from home. The views from the balcony are stunning over the surrounding roofs and looking towards Lycabettus Hill and the Acropolis in the distance. Two sides of the apartment are glass, which is great for the views, but as we were there in February this made it a little difficult to heat (we actually had snow!) but I expect this is not a problem most visitors would encounter!
We had our own car so did not use public transport either locally or going in to Athens centre, but there was ample information provided in the flat and we look forward to visiting again and trying out that aspect of the apartment. We have every intention of returning to Helena and Vassilis' flat.
First of all, we want to thank Helena and her husband for the great welcome. The apartment was in good conditions. We had everything what we wanted. additionally, we had luck with the weather so we could spend the breakfast on the terrace. Athens is a lovely city with all her ancient history and extraordinary views from the Acropolis.
Brilliant house in a lovely part of Athens. The hosts were fantastic, waiting up to give us heaps of tips for our day on Athens even though we got in late. Great communication on their part and they were just lovely. The restaurant across the road is one of the best too!
This listing was as described. The host were friendly.
Location in Palaio Faliro = Good location to be in a neighborhood.
Take the bus to get to the Acropolis = 1.20 Euro; 15-20 minutes.
A bit noisy with trash collection and deliveries and, for some reason, lots of barking dogs.
Bed was too firm for my liking.
Cool at night in January, but there's heat and blankets. The place warms up when the sun comes up.
Small fridge, hot plate, hot water kettle, microwave, utensils
TV with lots of channels.
Wonderful patio/terrace - spacious.
Elevator goes to the 4th floor; then you take the stairs to the top floor where the apartment is located.
Small bathroom with a shower. Solar heated water.
Restaurants, ATMs, grocery, bakery, shopping and more
Overall, has a lot to offer. Helena and Viscilli (sp) are knowledgeable and friendly. They have a nice set up.
