We had a very enjoyable stay in Athens. The apartment is conveniently located between the City and the coast making trips to the sites and the beach/lake easy. The apartment itself is good value for money, as is the city in general, and has supermarkets and restaurants close by. I would highly recommend a visit to Athens and I will stay in the apartment again if I return to the city.
Transfers to and from the airport were handled perfectly and for a very fair price. The apartment itself is small but has everything you might need. Tons of TV viewing material provided by the hostess for those quiet nights. We were there in mid-December so were not able to take advantage of the terrace; it would be great in warmer weather though. Great neighbourhood and we always felt safe walking around. Lots of good restaurants (and bakeries) nearby. The only drawback was that the only sink in the apartment is the bathroom sink so any dirty dishes need to be cleaned there. Otherwise, this was a good hub for our Athens visit.
Very nice apartment, warm and romantic. Easy parking on the street. Several taverns are right across the street with good food and low prices.
We enjoyed our stay in Helena and Vassiis's very reasonably priced apartment with a comfy bed, and very quiet air-conditioner. The cooking facilities are limited but we didn't need them with an excellent restaurant just across the road. It was good to be in a non-tourist part of Athens where we could mix with the locals going about their daily life, and the local bakery, deli, fruit shop and markets were just along the road. A ten minute walk took us to a beautiful sea-side promenade and park leading on to a marina, but if we wanted to see the sights of central Athens it was just a 15 minute bus ride from across the road. Helena and Vassiis were very helpful with a luggage problem we had and we thoroughly recommend a stay there.
This is a great apartment, near the coast. It's not so close to the center. We used it as a base for a couple of days when we made day trips outside of Athens. It was great for this purpose. Vasilis and Helena were great and helpful, especially in arranging transportation from the port of Piraeus and to the airport. Very nice people.
The apartment itself is very small. The rooftop terrace is a very nice place to sit in the evening. This area of town is quite busy and noisy - full of life.
Helena, Vassilis, and all of their staff, welcomed us as old friends to this fabulous apartment in a nice neighborhood of Athens. We stayed a night before our cruise and a night after, and used their transportation to and from the airport, our cruise, and to town. They shared what we should see in our limited time, and even loaned us Euros when I was having ATM problems! Their children are wonderful, and their stories of making a living in a very tough economic time in Greece made our stay educational. I would definitely recommend their apartments to anyone visiting Athens.
There was a very distinct 'toilet' smell in the apt when we arrived. We brought it up with the host but it wasn't properly addressed. Maybe we caught the place on a bad day, but our experience overall was just ok.
Elena and Vassili's appartement is, as everybody else says, great! The only negative thing we could say is that the appartement isn't exactly as the pictures describe it (couch next the bed, no seperate room) but it really doesn't impact on the rest.
The veranda is AMAZING. It was the reason why we booked the appartement in the first place and we were not disappointed!
Be sure to eat at the little greek restaurant right down the appartement, trust me you won't regret it!
Helena and Vassili lived up to their name as Super Hosts! I give them a glowing review for how we were treated during our stay. The flat is clean, spacious and the terrace overlooks the entirety of Athens. The restaurant kiddie-corner to the flat was very welcoming, busy and delicious. Within a ten minute walk, you can reach a lovely marina that is filled with people and families in the evenings. Very safe neighbourhood with access to pharmacies and a large supermarket 5 minutes from the flat. Taxis pass frequently so catching a cab was simple as could be (and they are quite affordable, ~6 euros to the Acropolis). Simply put, staying in Athens at this flat was perfect.
Helena has been a perfect host, helpful but not invasive. Helena will do her very best to help you out and won't hesitate to go the extra mile. La grande classe quoi!
The airport pick up which is proposed is perfect for a family of 4: definitely time and money saver! The location itself is great, the seashore is at a walking distance (15min) and offers nice and relaxing promenades at sunset. All main tourist attractions can be easily reached using public transportations. The bus station is at the foot of the building and get you to Athens metro station in 20min max. Be sure to buy your tickets before using the bus. They don't sell on board! Very nice greek restaurant around the corner where to enjoy yummy brochettes. Charming and lively crew there!
We all fully enjoyed our stay there. A good start before heading towards Skopelos and the wonders of the Pilion.
De nouveau un très sincère Efkaristo poli Helena, pour votre gentillesse et votre efficacité!
Au delà de toutes les beautés vues lors de notre périple, c'est sans aucun doute l'accueil, l'hospitalité, l’amabilité, les sourires de tous ici que nous retiendrons et emportons avec nous.
