We had a very pleasant stay in this lovely flat. Stelios's parents are very nice and warm hearted people and made us feel at home. The flat was very clean and had everything we needed with all the necessary appliances to cook, nice shower, confy bed and enough space to feel lazy in the living room / dinning room .
The area of Kastella is a hill, with a neighbourhood feeling with cute narrow streets like those in the Greek islands and amazing sea views over the gulf, especially at sunset. Access to line 1 of the metro with direction to Athens is easy and only few minutes from the flat. The journey takes about 10-15 minutes to get to Monastiraki and Plaka. You can use the metro for the airport but we also found it handy for our return flight that the bus X96 to the airport stops at a short walking distance from the flat. Even at 4 o' clock in the morning there were people around and we felt safe. Overall an excellent choice!
I stayed me and my girlfriend for 2 months on Stalios apartment and it was a very pleasant stay. Since Stelios works out of Greece, I met with his parents, which are staying at the top floor. They are excellent hosts, very friendly and caring, best example of the famous Greek hospitality. The apartment is very nice exactly what it looks on the photos, with a beautiful modern kitchen and good Wi-Fi connection.
The location is near the canter of Piraeus but at the same time quite, the area of Mikrolimano is only 5 min walking and the Marina of Zeas only 5min with taxi, with many bars and restaurants. Very near to bus stops for the Athens city canter and the Airport, as well 10min walk to the train station which takes you at the city canter and has connection with Metro. Additional is only 5min walk from the tourist bus stop (hop on hop off) which is a good way to see Athens if you are in a short time. Supermarket, bakery and grocery are all in a walking distance.
It was the best choice I could have done and I will definitely recommend this apartment to anyone.
I originally planned to spend only 2 nights in Stelio's cool pad in Mikrolimano but ended prolonging my stay each time staying just under 1 month as I felt right at home! Not only was the location perfect but there was a lot of thought and attention in every article/ furnishing in the house itself. It was nice to have a separate living/ dining room, office/tv room and great kitchen with modern appliances. Large bathroom was great and smaller bathroom also (website hidden) units were fantastic and wonderful! But the best part were Stelios' wonderful parents which live above and every other day dropped in to say hi with some home made Greek food / specialities cooked to perfection ! I will definitely miss my experience and hope to be back again soon ! Thank you Stelios:)
Spacious and cosy appartment. The neighborhood is very quiet and also close to the picturesque port of Microlimano, full of tavernas and bars. The kitchen is fully equiped. Stelios was abroad but his parents are a wonderful couple, very polite, always helpful. There is always free parking just outside the appartment.
