Lovely apartment with large balcony overlooking a tree covered slope. Good transport links to the centre.Zois was extremely helpful in providing information and arranging an excellent taxi driver.
An excellent place in Athens
Excellent apartment in a very goog and quiet neighborhood, 15 m on foot from the Akropolis. Cheap and good restaurants 100 m. from the apartment. Large living- room, two spacious bed-room and a large bath-room. Conditioned air in all rooms and spacious garage. Enormous terrace in the balcony. And good wifi. In excellent place for your stay in Athens!
Thank you for your feedback we are glad you had a great stay and liked both the apartment and the local area.
spacious, easy to get to sights
The apartment was quite large and it was easy to get to the main sights by walk and Metro. The grocery store was close by and the area was nice.
Thank you for your kind words regarding your stay.
Bright, beautiful, large apartment conveniently located to many sites by foot as well as the Metro
We rented the apartment for 10 nights to use as our home base for our days in Athens as well as 3 overnights out of the area. The location and price made this decision a great one. The beds are firm, and the main living area as well as the two bedrooms are air conditioned. Huge balcony made breakfast and evenings at the house special. The washing machine made for a great convenience (we saw no laundromats and only found 1 listed far away), and there was plenty of lines to hang clothes. Market is a few blocks away and open until 9:00 PM. Plenty of restaurants nearby for lengthy dining or a quick bite.
Continue walking up the hill on the street and you get to the back way of Hill of the Nymphs where the observatory and extensive ruins are located at top, and you can continue over to the Acropolis. Conversely, go down the hill and over a few blocks to get to the Metro stop, which is very near the center of Athens.
The only drawback we found is you get one set of keys and need them to lock yourself out of both the apartment and the apartment building, and then need to lock yourself in the building (there is a deadbolt you can use on the apartment door that does not require a key). One day , I wanted to nap and my husband was up for looking around but we both agreed it would not be a good idea for me to be locked in the building. Indeed several days later an apartment alarm had gone off (false alarm -- we vacated the building and the alarm soon turned off and we saw no one else), but I can't imagine having been there by myself and not being able to get out the front door.
The neighborhood is enough off the beaten path to provide an authentic experience of an urban Greek neighborhood, but close enough to the action of central Athens. We felt like in selecting this apartment we had hit the jackpot!
Thank you very much for the excellent review ,we are so glad you liked staying at our apartment and appreciated the local area and what it has to offer by way of conveniences and proximity to historic must see parts of Athens.
Re the matter with the keys and locking the building front door when you are inside the other 2 owners in the building wanted this rule as a security measure to prevent anyone breaking in.A second set of keys is available on request and its a shame that you did not ask us for them.
In any case it sounds like you had a good time and that makes us happy .
Regards and happy travels
