More than happy to give tips and advice on visiting Athens.
Quiet residential neighbourhood, located close to the very centre of Athens with a lot of green and one of the biggest parks of Athens. 3 minute walk from central square of Nea Smyrni is very vibrant with a lot of cafes, restaurants, bars and shops. Small supermarket on the street, 20 minutes tram ride to the seaside.
Flat is located 3 blocs away from Aigaiou tram stop which goes to both the very center of Athens (Syntagma Square) and the seaside in 15-20 minutes. Closest metro station is Neos Kosmos 10 minute walking distance. Taxis in Athens are inexpensive (less than 5 euro ride to both center or seaside).
Other Things to Note
This is my lovely Athens home but as I am working abroad I am renting it out. Love and enjoy it as much as I do.
Perfect for both smokers and non-smokers as smoking is allowed on the fully covered terrace.
Christina's place was great. The view was absolutely amazing and the location was really good. We had excellent restaurants very close by and it was very easy to catch the local tram and subway system.
Christina was very helpful when we made the arrangements and we found her guidebook very useful.
We would definitely recommend her apartment.
Christina was really helpful in the pre-trip experience; easily contactable by email and went to extra effort to arrange extras for us (chocolates, roses in room). The view was incredible and really enjoyed sitting on balcony.
Location halfway between port and city centre, but not ideal if you want to explore Plaka area mostly as still require taxi/tram (10 min walk to stn).
Other things to be aware:
1. WiFi did not work for 3 days and although her mother was originally very friendly, after I asked a few times for it to be fixed she eventually hung up the phone on me and told me not to disturb her holiday.
2. Told Christina our expected arrival time was 1pm; checkin person was there at 12 then had to come back (15 mins wait)
3. The CD player/sound system did not work for 2 days but was probably due to previous guests not leaving the code behind!
Pictures do not do justice to amazing view. Be aware though that whilst apartment is exactly as per photos, it is quite small and bed pillows are only two with a small sheet!
Апартаменты Кристины оставили у нас только лучшие впечатления: наличие всего необходимого для комфортного проживания, изысканный, детально продуманный интерьер и, конечно, неповторимый вид на Афины. Квартира Расположена в хорошем, спокойном районе города, несколько удаленном от исторических достопримечательностей, но удобном для посещения различных областей города, включая пляж. Общение с Кристиной было легким и приятным. Еще раз спасибо!
Christinas apartment helped us to fall in love with Athens . There are everything is fine : well thought-out and style in every detail of the interior create a special romantic atmosphere. But what can not be forgotten ever - it's a fantastic view from the large balcony of the apartment ! Morning, afternoon , evening, night - you will not want to leave this place where the whole city is on your hands. Christine , thank you very much for our wonderful experience that makes our desire to come back to Athens !
Everything worked perfectly with Christina even though we never got the chance to meet in person. She provided guidance before our visit and arranged check-in right when we arrived in Athens. The apartment was perfect for a couple to enjoy Athens. View from the large balcony/terrace was stunning, you can see both the Mediterranian Sea and Acropolis Hill.
The penthouse apartment was perfect! It looks just like the photos. The neighborhood is extremely walkable and convenient to everything I needed. It's a very quaint area and, frankly, it made me fall in love with Greece. Christina and her mother, Ms. Diana, are lovely people with a wealth of knowledge. I was able to spend time with both of them and I'd love to visit them again. They even took me out to dinner for my birthday.
We had a fantastic stay at Christina's apartment. It exceeded expectations (and the pictures actually do not do it justice - the views were incredible). It was very clean and we feel right at home. I would highly recommend this as a place to stay if you visiting Athens. Also, great access to a train that can take you downtown. Neighborhood felt safe and has plenty of restaurants.
Probably the best place to enjoy a romantic evening. The view is breathtaking. The place is quiet and very clean. We loved it!
