Palaio Phaliro , probably is the most beautiful area of Athens and you have the opportunity to discover the real city of Athens and not just the typical touristic areas.The house is next to the city center, ideally situated between Athens historical center and Piraeus port.Our area is a very popular choice for Athenians for swimming , walking and (website hidden) is 12 minutes walk from the beach, the magnificent seaside walk of P.Faliro and the newly build marina of Flisvos where you can choose among, our unique open air cinema, coffee shops, bars and restaurants, while enjoying beautiful sunset over Castella Hill (see photos)
As our area is next to the sea, it is a little bit cooler compared to the center of Athens,during the summer and away from demonstrations and traffic jams. Our neighborhood is quiet and absolutely safe with no parking problem in case you rent a car.

Probably the most beautiful area of Athens, next to the beach with magnificient sunset & great night life
The pluses of the apartment are:
- the terrace, which is great: big and green, with panoramic view on Athens and Acropolis;
- the apartment was clean;
- the host (Vassili) was nice and helpful.
The minuses are:
- The main minus for us is that the kitchen and the toilet are the same space, quite a small one. The toilet bowl is right beside the kitchen surface, which is unusual and really inconvenient.
- The headboard of the bed is from metal rods with holes in between. So you cannot lean your pillow against the headboard while sleeping, as it would partially sink through;
- The panoramic views of Athens quay and the beach, which cannot be seen from the apartment, are put on the apartment page here in Airbnb. It makes impression, that these views are visible from the terrace, which is not true.
I am wondering if you wrote review for the wrong apartment or you did not read the apartment's description or had a good look of the photos before booking. After six years of hosting thousands of guests, you are the first one thinking that the apartment's terrace has beach or sea view!! Especially when the title (and as you also admit ) is Athens-Acropolis view.
Also, as someone can clearly see in the photos or read in the description , it is a an open plan studio where next to the couch there is a kitchenette with fridge , microwave, grill,coffee maker, etc. The bathroom / toilet is separated by the rest of the studio /kitchenette with walls and a door. I am sorry that you were not able to figure out from the 40 photos and the detailed description what the apartment looks like.
Really nice people and well situated flat! Great holidays !! Thank you helena and vassili !
Helena's apartment was in a great spot, close to the southern beaches, easily accessible by the nearby tram. Also easy to catch a tram into the city. Good coffee in all the small cafes, and some good local tavernas. Green grocer next door sells good quality fruit, nuts, crisp breads etc, and there is a large well stocked supermarket across the road. Kitchen was very small for cooking, with the sink in the bathroom, so we ate out apart from breakfast. Bed comfy, linen nice and fresh. Hosts very helpful with arranging private transfers from airport, bus station and port, all at good prices. The terrace is a great bonus, with the Acropolis visible in the distance.
The apartment in Palio Faliro is in a convenient location for public transport and access to the city centre or beach side areas. The apartment was clean and comfortable and totally enjoyed the spacious balcony area.
I travelled to Athens on my own and I felt very safe in the apartment. It was easy to catch taxis or buses from out the road and there was a supermarket, fruit and veg shop and restaurants right in front of the apartment. The hosts helped me with all of my requests and we're always only a phone call away. I enjoyed staying at this apartment and when my son came to stay they turned the lounge into another bed. We were very happy there.
We had a wonderful stay. Chryssa picked us up efficiently from the airport and greeted us like long lost friends! We lived the studio and had a comfortable stay there. The balcony is amazing and the bed very comfy. Just marvellous to wake up surrounded by windows. Loved the suggestions for what to do in the area. Good green grocers at bottom of block and Spar supermarket over the road. Kebab restaurant opposite served tasty food. We were going to meet a boat nearby and Vassili was very kind and gave us a lift there. We would love to stay again and were made to feel really welcome. Thank you so much for your hospitality.
