Athens apartment description

The 44 sqm apartment, next to the Acropolis Museum, is just a walking distance from the Acropolis and the heart of Athens. The Acropolis Metro Station, only a few meters away, links it directly to both the Athens Airport and the Piraeus harbour and on to the greek islands. Thus there is no need for a car. It is fully furnished and has just been renovated by the architect owner.

The flat, on the elevated ground floor is fully secured and easily accessible. There is a comfortable double bed in the bedroom. The extra folding bed in the living room, available on request, makes it ideal for a couple and a child or a friend. The air conditioning makes the apartment very comfortable even through the hottest summer days and nights.

There is free internet WI-FI access.

The flat is equipped with a washing/drying machine. An automatic laundry service is also right opposite. Access to the beach is very easy with tram or bus. Coffee shops, news stands, restaurants and bars around the Acropolis and the tavernas of old Plaka are all at a walking distance. The Acropolis Museum also offers great views to the Acropolis from its beautiful and economic roof terrace Restaurant and Cafeteria. There are many events taking place both in the Museum and in the lively and safe neighbourhood.
The National Garden, the Panathinaic Stadium where the first Olympic Games were held in 1896, Zappeion, the House of Parliament and many other archaeological sites are all at a walking distance. It is also a great experience walking down the Ermou Street shops and to the Monastiraki Flea Market.

                                    This apartment is a great space in a wonderful location. Everything is at your doorstep, Acropolis, museum, restaurants, underground, and we could walk pretty much to everything. We didn't eat in, but kitchen seemed well equipped. Suitable for singles or a couple. We found it noisy at night, however, there was football/soccer finals going on and our last night you could have heard a pin drop. So perhaps bring earplugs, just in case. I think it would be quiet normally, just our timing. Nikos was wonderful and gave us lots of information. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Thanks again.

                                    Nikos´ apartment could not be a better location. It is 2-3 minutes from the gates of the Acropolis park (and the metro station) and the excellent Acropolis Museum. That means it is also near a large pedestrian promenade that runs along the foot of the Acropolis, which is useful for navigating the city. In this area there is also a string of restaurants that, while somewhat touristy, had good food at reasonable prices. Nikos told us which was his favourite and we had a good experience there. He works right around the corner and knows the neighbourhood well. Across the street from the apartment there are some amenities: a laundromat and a couple of decent bars, and further along a grocery store and bakery. Despite the apartment´s proximity to sites, the street it is on is quiet and felt quite safe, even late at night. The apartment is comfortable and the AC works well (which is important in Athens). The kitchen was convenient. Nikos was friendly and very prompt in responding to email. He gave us his cell phone number and encouraged us to call him at any time if we had a question or a problem arose. He took the time to give us an orientation to the neighborhood and recommend a few less-visited destinations (like the neighbourhood of Gazi). Thanks for a great stay!

                                    The apartment is very well located, right near Acropolis museum. We walked to almost everything. Should especially mention Nikos - our host - who shaped our first time in Athens with his great advice, during the entire stay. Thank you, it was wonderful!

                                    It' a very nice and cozy place to stay in, fully equipped with everything that one might need during a stay away from home. Within walking distance there are stops of all means of public transport in Athens, and through those you can also make connections to everywhere you might want to go. Suits well both personal and business needs, as the owner, Nikos issues invoices. Nikos proved to be helpful and responsive.

                                    This a fantastic place to stay if you wish to combine your vacation with comfort at the heart of historic Athens. The best place I ever stayed in Athens. I am a frequent traveler to Athens and this beautifully decorated flat exceeded my expectations by far. Easily accessible to all of Athens, at the footsteps of Acropolis, next to the new Acropolis museum surrounded by great cafes and restaurants. The flat has all the comforts that any 4 or 5 star hotel provides. Highly recommended!!!!!!!

                                    We stayed at the apartment while touring Athens for 3 days in June 2012. The apartment is in a great location being situated around the corner from the new Acropolis museum and a few blocks from Plaka. It is also within easy walking of most tourist sites and minutes from public transportation. The apartment is clean and comfortable with a nicely furnished bedroom and living room and a well equiped kitchen (which unfortunately lacks a table and chairs). Perhaps most importantly for a summer visit, the air conditioners worked perfectly! Nikos was very helpful in providing suggestions on what to see and do during our stay. He also made himself available if anything should come up (nothing did). We would definitely consider staying there again and would recommend the apartment to others.

                                    a great apartment for a single person or couple visiting Athens. Great location, and the pictures Niko has on the site are 100% accurate. a 1 bedroom flat by Athens standards thats huge but for an American, exactly the size you would expect. Great cafes and restaurants surround the building and for American travelers who dont know the Greek language, this apartment is located across the street from a hotel/restaurant that cateers to American college kids and serves great burgers, fries and chicken wings. If you dont bring your laptop, the hotel across the street has computer/internet access for 3 EU/hour. Niko is a very nice man, speaks excellent english and is quick to reply to a question or any issue that can arise from day to day. you wont go wrong staying in this apartment

                                    This little appartement is very cosy and has a lot of comfort. It is very well placed, right in the centrum of Athens. What was also great is that the appartement had every thing you needed. I spend a very romantic week with my husband and left for home relaxed.

                                    Owner response: Thanks for the kind words; The fact that this was your second stay shows that the apartment satisfies your criteria and meets your expectations. This makes me feel even happier.

                                    My parents and I stayed for 4 nights in this flat (located on the 1st floor of an old buidling) in mid-september 2011. Globally, the flat is nice and is nicely located in Athens to allow one to explore the main sights of the city by foot - expect 5 minutes to reach the Acropolis and 2 minutes to get to the Acropolis Museum. The flat is well suited for 3 people, but no more. The main bedroom and the bathroom are well presented, the kitchen is OK, but a little nice touch could be added to the living room (e.g. a more comfortable bed could be added to replace the existing one). On the pros is the fact that the flat is secured by additional windows in both the living-room and the bedroom. However, upon our arrival, we found a kitchen that had not been cleaned before (likely the mistake of the previous guests, but still), opening the window in the bathroom is at your risk (there is so much moisture on just the outside of the window that it smells very bad in the whole room in less than 15 minutes), and the washing machine is not self-explained (some instructions written on the machine would have been useful). It would have been nice also to receive some advices on places to eat, where is the closest supermarket... Overall, this is a good flat, but it could be improved with not so much effort.

                                    Owner response: Thank you for the review: I am sorry I did not have the chance to meet the tenants since I was away in London. Obviously my assistant assured me (wrongly) that everything was ok. As far as the Washing/Drying machine, the instructions are explained, in various languages, in the manufacturer's booklet, left at the apartment. I will take into consideration all your comments.
