The flat was really lovely, clean and comfortable. The location is excellent, tucked onto a pedestrianised strip away from the road and surrounded by great restaurants, bars and cafes.
Elena's friend Phoebe welcomed me and was on hand straight away if I had an queries, really brilliant. I would love to stay there again.
Elena has a Great Apartment! Very warm, at a perfect location whether you know how to move in Athens or not. "Evangelismos" metro station is less than 10 minutes walk.
Phoebe, Elena's friend who greeted us, is a very pleasant hostess! Available to help, told us to call her whatever we need, even if it's late at night!
At home coffee, water and crackers were waiting for us! Really we could not have done a better choice. ;)
The studio is located in the heart of Kolonaki. It may be a bit noisy but it was never loud as a disturb during my stay. I was received by Phoebe, who showed me the place and explained all the functionalities of the studio. A very friendly place with wonder host. Plenty of good places to go in the neighbourhood. One will feel to be mixed with locals.
The place was super cozy and in my opinion the best district in all of Athens - Kolonaki. Not only is it a super safe and beautiful but it is super close to the majority of attractions in Athens that you want to see - Acropolis and all the other ancient cites, the museums, Syntagma Square, Lycabettus and Panathinaiko Stadium (the first Olympic Stadium). If you are someone like me who loves to walk everywhere, all these sites are no more than a half hour walk away and if you don't like to walk, the studio is minutes away from the metro, busses and taxis that will take you anywhere in the city. Elena was not around but her friend Phoebe was and she was quick to respond if any issues arose and was super ok with me having a late checkout due to my late flight out of Athens. All in all this place is definitely worth it to stay while in Athens and if and when I come back to the city I will definitely stay here again.
Randel thank you for your positive feedback and we are always happy to host people as respectful and as kind as you.
Happy new year!

Elena and George,
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Thisio Penthouse and look forward to returning to this wonderfully located home away from home.
You were very helpful and welcoming upon our arrival, providing valuable insight and information.
For those wishing to explore Athens and surrounds this is a great base to do it from.
Thanks again, Sam&Mary
SEHR EMPFEHLENSWERT! Die Wohnung ist ein Traum: sehr sauber, gemütlich und geräumig genug für 2 Personen. Elena und Phoebe waren äußerst hilfsbereit, haben zügig geantwortet und waren immer sehr gastfreundlich. Besonders schön fand ich, dass Phoebe eine Flasche Wasser in den Kühlschrank für uns gestellt hat. Auch wichtige Gewürze, Seife, Toilettenpapier und sogar Kaffee waren in der Wohnung :) Die Straße ist verkehrsberuhigt und man kann am morgen auch länger schlafen. Am abned hört man das bunte Treiben in den Restaurants der Straße. Das ist aber nicht wirklich störend. Die Gegend Kolonaki ist sehr schön und sicher. Der Weg zur Haltestelle dauert ca. 7 Min und es geht etwas bergab. Fazit: Wir wwerden die Wohnung in Athen nächstes Mal wieder buchen. Vielen Dank für diesen schönen Urlaub.
I've rented quite a few places while vacationing in Europe and have met great homeowners, but Elena is absolutely the best! She has stocked the kitchen not only with water, coffee, and tea, but also with bread, crackers, cakes... She took us to the rooftop to show how close we were to the acropolis and walked us around the neighbourhood to show us pharmacy, bakery and supermarket. As I stayed in Athens for 12 days, you need to trust me when I say the apartment is at the best location! It was at the last block where a road is turned into pedestrian, thus quiet, but close to lots of cafe. At night, they laid out lanterns on the sidewalks and it looks magical! Walking for 3 minutes and you'd reach the archeology promenade which leads you to all the historical sites, and another pedestrian road full of restaurants.
Elena not only gave us tips on restaurants and places to go, she often checked in to see if there was anything we need. Meeting her on our first day in Athens definitely was a great way to start our time in Athens. She was an example of genuinely kind, friendly Greek people that we've met there. Will be back!
You are the best, most happy faces I've met while being an airbnb owner! So great meeting you Jennie.
The Kolonaki studio was great! The neighborhood is perfect with great cafés and restaurants. Very easy access to all the sites and transit. The apartment is spacious and the bed was very comfortable! Elena and Phoebe were terrific hosts, absolutely no complaints.
The studio have good location, clean, comfortable and well decorated. The flat was exactly as seen in photos. Good speed wi-fi. It’s located in an area with many restaurants, which creates a bit of noise at night.
Thanks to Phoebe, communication was very pleasant. She was very flexible about the meeting time.
Friendly, caring, hospitable, Helena is the perfect host! She is the ideal person to consult on where to go, what to see, where to eat and drink and provide you with loads of tips to feel like you are a local. What's more, her background in interior design warrantees she has taken attention to every detail! I'm sure that staying in one of her properties will make you feel a real VIP... Enjoy!
Elena will provide you excellent conditions to fully enjoy your staying in any of her properties! As a talented Interior Designer and a cosmopolitan woman she knows exactly what to do to make you feel at home!
You will definitely enjoy your staying. Promise. :)
