This family house is located half a block away from the underground-railway-train station ‘Larisa’ which is on the CENTRAL LINE of Athens metro. (2 stops from Omonia station, 4 stops from Syntagma square, 5 stops from Acropolis). From Larisa station you can also take a train to all the major cities of Greece (Thessaloniki) as well as some cities outside the country, such as Bulgaria.
The apartment’s surround area offers a number of services including a HYPERMARKET and several kiosks, some of which are on 24h service. There is a parking service and a taxi rank that is also available 24h right outside the ‘Larisa’ station.
The building is quite old but the apartment itself (200sqm) has been recently renovated and everything inside is new. It is a FOUR BEDROOMS place with TWO BATHROOMS, a spacious living room with a fireplace, a FULLY LOADED KITCHEN and a room used as an office with a computer. The kitchen is well equipped with an oven and a stove, a microwave, a fridge with a freezer and all sorts of pans and pots. The large living room area includes two couches, situated right in front of the television and a DVD player. From the living room you can access a LARGE TERRACE which is ideal for nice conversations.
* Spacious guest rooms. There is also a space which is off the living room and has a bed and a sofa-bed if needed.
*Clean bed linens, towels are provided.
*Fans are available for the rooms and there is aircondition in the living room.
*I always have some goodies for breakfast for you to use (coffee, tea, sugar.)
The apartment and its excellent location make it the best choice for spending your time in the city of Athens. I would be really happy to host you all.
House rules are pretty much simple and rational I would say. You should really feel like home but also respect the place you are accomodated in, meaning not kicking the doors and walls, not throwing things to each other, not breaking house staff. Keep it down between 14:00 to 17:00 and after 23:00, due to quietness policy in Athens. Please do not talk loudly when you are outside to the terrace. PLUS... wash your dishes and respect WC hygiene rules.
We loved the apartment. There were three of us and each of us got a spare room. Living room is wonderful. Huge balcony with tables and chairs. We couldnt enjoy our breakfast outside as the weather was pretty cold but I am sure it feels great in summer time. Please note that if you are visiting Greece in cold season it is not really warm inside. As far as we are aware there is no central heating in Greece. Ellen's apartment has air cons in each room with heating mode as well as cooling mode. So we didnt feel any discomfort.
The kitchen is well-equiped in case you want to cook for yourself.
The apartment is 5-7 min walk from the metro station. We counted at least 3 caffes and 1 bakery within a 5 walking distance. There is also a big supermarket 10 minutes from the aparment. We felt absolutely safe in the neighbourhood. Downtown area is 2-4 metro stations from Ellen's apartment. Metro system is pretty easy and we were never lost.
Ellen replied to my emails very quickly and whenever we had a question we always got the answer.
We highly reccommend the apartment for stay. I think it is especially comfortable place to stay for a longer period of time as it has everything you need (including washing machine).
Thanks a lot, Ellen, for letting us in!!!!
This apartment is lovely and very spacious! My party-- 6 adults-- stayed comfortably. There are plenty of beds, towels, and amenities. The apartment is located near a metro and allows everything in Athens to be reached easily. While the apartment could use a few updates, it was a great space!
Ellen was an amazing host. Prior to our visit, she was in constant communication with me. When a problem arose with the shower, she was attentive and responded very quickly.
All in all, I'd give this apartment a 7 out of 10.
The place is amazing and pictures match the reality. Great terrasse, perfect location in the city. Subway and facilities are at less than 5 minutes away. Even if we didn't meet, Eleni is really friendly and communication is more than easy.
Thank you so much Eleni!! you made our vacation perfect!
We spend a few days in Elenis apartment in Athen. We had a great time. The apartment was very nice, especially the balcony that was very large and with lots of green plants. Great big kitchen as well. Very nice neighborhood. Elena recommended a good place for gyros on a nearby square, where we also tried a fish/seafood restaurant that was very good.
We were 6 adults and 2 small children and fit into the apartment no problem. There was a supermarket and metro very close by. We all recommend you to stay there if you go to Athens.
Situe dans un quartier calme et populaire, l'appartement d'Eleni est à deux pas du métro et à quelques stations de l'acropole. L'appartement est spacieux , propre, chaleureux . Les enfants ont beaucoup aimé la terrasse. En 2 mots, vivement recommandé
We stayed two nights in Eleni's flat. The flat is very spacious and fully equipped (great terrace!!) Metro station at 3 min and allows to reach easily all the touristic places as well as Piraeus and airport. Eleni was not here to welcome us but her neighbour was very kind! Eleni was very flexible with arrival and departure times, which is much appreciated! She answers very quickly. Highly recommended!
The apartment is very nice and well placed to visit very easily the beautiful sites in Athens. For example, we went to the archaeological museum by foot (10') and to the Acropolis by car (15').
Although we didn't have the pleasure to meet Eleni, she made everything to help us. Her neighbour gave us the keys for the apartment. He was very helpful too.
In conclusion, we liked very much our stay in Athens in the Eleni's apartment.
