Un superbe appartement situe tout près de l'Acropole, dans un quartier particulièrement calme. Spiros nous a accueilli extrêmement bien avec beaucoup de gentillesse. Tout a été parfait et conforme à la description.
Mérite tout à fait les 5 étoiles.
Tanks a lot Spiros
Our host, Spyros, was most gracious and welcoming. He offered to meet us at a central location--Syntagma Square--and take us to the flat, but it was not necessary as I happen to know the city quite well.
The flat is lovely and the photographs on the AirBnB site entirely representative. It was spotless, nicely furnished, and spacious. The kitchen surpassed our expectations, as it featured high-end MIELE appliances and had lots of counter space for food preparation. We loved burning the fireplace on chilly nights. Spyros provided us with ample firewood at no additional cost. The wide veranda has views of the neighborhood and of the verdant Philopappos Hill.
The neighborhood is first-rate: safe, medium density, steps from lovely green spaces, less than 10-min walk from the Petralona Metro station. The street on which the flat is located is also steps from Troon Street, which is the neighborhood's commercial ribbon. It has a number of great tavernas. A decent supermarket is a couple of blocks away.
It was perfect!
The apartment is like shown in the pictures. It is equipped with everything.
The located is very nice, near to the center, Plaka and Akropolis. Metro is also near, but you can reach everything by feet.
Spiros was a very nice and helpful person. He pick us up in Syntagma when we arrived!
Spiro Thanks! It was very nice.
This was our first trip to Athens and Spiros's apartment could not have been better placed. It was a pleasant walk up to the Acropolis area taking about 20 mins, there was a nearby bus and the metro wasn't too far either. Taxis were also very reasonably priced.
Spiros was very kind and welcoming and we found the apartment to be well equipped and very comfortable. It had two balconies of which the larger one would have been lovely to have had breakfast on if the weather had been slightly warmer. We would certainly recommend Spiros's flat and would very much enjoy returning in the future. We also found the Greek people we met to be exceptionally friendly and helpful.
In one word - perfection! We had everything we needed, and more...
Spiros was very kind, collected us from the bus stop with his car, showed us around a bit when we just got to Athens, made us some Greek coffee, and left a lot of information for us to use during our stay (maps etc.). He also didn't mind our early arrival and our late departure which was extremely convenient.
exactly as in the pictures, a very beautiful and comfortable apartment, a nice balcony where we had breakfasts every day, everything tastefully decorated and in best conditions, including appliances. The kitchen was very nice and easy to use and find our way around. Everything was though of, there was even an electric blanket to warm up the bed before you got in it at a cold night :)
For our daily trips we could either use the bus stop two blocks away to get to town or the metro station which is a bit further away but also not too far (10 min or so). Either way it doesn't take long to reach the city center. It's also not too far from Pireus which was nice for our Island day trips.
The neighborhood itself is lovely and was the best place to eat from our experience - every restaurant we tried there was great, in other locations in Athens we weren't so lucky.
Truly a wonderful stay, we were so sad to leave...
Thank you Spiros! :)

The apartment meets the expectations raised by the shown pictures. It is equipped with everything one needs and one can easily feel comfortable, it was tidy and clean. It is located in a nice neighborhood, restaurants and a grocery store are nearby. One needs to walk 8 minutes to the next Metro station. Even a walk in the city is not that far. Spiros was very nice, helpful and flexible as we arrived a bit earlier than expected. On our departure day he gave us a ride to the bus stop. Thanks for a pleasant stay.
C'est un appartement très agréable et confortable que Spiros nous a prêté. Bien équipé et très bien tenu on y était comme chez nous dans un quartier animé , authentique et plein de services. Bien placé en haut de la colline , sous le Pnyx, il permet de découvrir en quelques minutes de balade de découvrir l'Acropole de la manière la plus spectaculaire et de rejoindre tout aussi agréablement le le centre ancien.
Il nous a permis de profiter pleinement d'Athènes sans autre souci que la découverte.
bon appartement, belle ville, bonne ambiance, le pied quoi!
