About the property

Prime Location Kolonaki 1BDR,A/C,WiFi,Cable,Walk to Museus,Metro,Sleeps 2-3

Located minutes away from Kolonaki square and Syntagma, our apartment is in a very safe, residential building, moments from museums, fashionable bar-restaurants, stores and amenities. It offers a unique stay in Athens' unique Kolonaki district!!

Our apartment is on the first floor of quiet residential family building with few apartments - it is in excellent condition with high ceilings, wooden floors, am ultra clean bathroom and a small but very functional kitchen. The apartment also offers a very sweet little bedroom balcony, ideal for breakfast or dinner for two.

Its location is superb - moments away from the Benaki Museum (inside a preserved neoclassical manor house) and the Goulandris Museum of Cycladic Art which are two of the finest private collections in the country.

The apartment is on Alopekis street - at the heart of Kolonaki and very near Kolonaki square. There are a plethora of available options for nightlife, including bars, ouzeries, and tavernas. Outdoor seating on pedestrian walks is typical, creating a lively atmosphere at night. The main Kolonaki Square is where the little column which the neighborhood was named for is located. It is surrounded by cafes and restaurants. Kolonaki also hosts 2 metro stations, Evengelismos ( 5minutes walk from the apartment) and Megaro Mousikis (a bit further away).

Two smaller museums to be found in Kolonaki are the Museum of the History of Greek Costume and the Theater Museum, both highly specialized in their respective areas. A walk across our street from Vasilissis Sofias Avenue are the Byzantine Museum, and the War Museum of Athens.

We would love to meet you and guide you through our city! We will provide hints & tips and there are plenty of maps and guides in the apartment to help us do just that! Our contact details are available and upon booking you will get access to two videos that we have prepared to help with your arrival.

Ideal place in quiet neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

Jut returned from a five night stay in this apartment situated in a fashionable area of Athens - not far from the metro. Ideal if you wish to escape the tourist hubbub of Monistriaki and Plaka. Apartment is on 1st floor in a quiet building with a little balcony facing the rear of the property - great for an early morning coffee or a late night wine! It is well proportioned and has all amenities - I found the washing machine particularly useful after being away for a fortnight! Everything explained on arrival and prompt response from owner on e-mail to arrival procedure and time. Plenty of wardrobe and drawer space to allow unpacking (bliss - again after living out of suitcase for a fortnight) and a lovely powerful shower to wake you up. Overall, a great place to stay in Athens.

If we come back to Athens, we would stay here again.

  • 5 of 5

Well appointed apartment, cosy, quiet and centrally located at the base of Lycabettus Hill and an easy walk to all places you would want to visit whilst in Athens. A short walk to many restaurants and bars . Oikieo restaurant located a few doors away became our favourite very quickly. Paris was very accommodating and helpful in ensuring our stay was enjoyable.

Διαμονή Δεκέμβρη στην Αθήνα

  • 4 of 5

Ευχάριστη έκπληξη ήταν για μένα αυτή η διαμονή.Σπίτι ζεστό,λειτουργικό σε κεντρικό σημείο,πεντακάθαρο,ήσυχο και ασφαλές.Είναι η 1η φορά που επιλέγω αυτό τον τρόπο διαμονής στη χώρα μας και δικαιώθηκα.Στα όχι και σοβαρά μείον -που όμως θα ευξηρετούσαν- η έλλειψη πετσετών για τα πόδια και μικρών ταπέτων που θα έκαναν τον χώρο πιο ζεστό για την εποχή.Δεν μου άρεσε επίσης η μεγάλη κατεμέ αύξηση των τελών καθαριότητας:απο 25 στις2/10 σε 35 στις1/12/2015. Στα μεγάλα σύν η ευγενέστατη κα Θάλεια. Θα ξανάρθω! Καλές γιορτές.

Owner's Response: Aγαπητή Γερακίνα, Σ' ευχαριστώ για τα καλά σου λόγια και χαίρομαι που ηταν ευχάριστη η διαμονή σου στο διαμέρισμα. Για το θέμα της αυξησης των τελών καθαριότητας, ο λόγος ηταν οτι έφυγε η προηγούμενη καθαρίστρια που φρόντιζε το διαμέρισμα και δεν μπορέσμε να βρούμε αλλη κατάλληλη με την ίδια αμοιβή. Σού ευχομαι καλές γιορτές και με μεγάλη χαρά θα σε περιμένω και πάλι στο μέλλον! Φιλικά ΠΤ

Great Stay! Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 3 weeks in this small, charming studio-apartment in the heart of Kolonaki.

The apartment is small, but very clean and functional, and has all the essentials. The location is perfect - Trendy neighbourhood close to Cafes, Restaurants and great shopping stores. The Kolonaki square is only minutes away as well as the bus and metro station. We were able to easily walk to Syntagma Sqare, Monastiraki, Plaka and all the touristy places.

The apartment is perfect for a short stay and the owner, Mr. Paris, is very professional, kind and helpful. This is the second time we have booked an apartment with him, and have always had a great experience.

I would definitely recommend the apartment and will be booking our next stay there.

Thank you

Not So Thrilled Stay at the Kolonaki apartment

  • 3 of 5

My wife and I were fortunate to be able to spend a week in Athens this past January. The sights are amazing, the locals are friendly and the entertainment and food costs are a bargain. We were not, however, as pleased with our “Kolonaki apartment” accommodation. We got off to a bad start with the apartment owner, Paris, when we had trouble finding the apartment on the first night we were there. In a rented car, we were driving in from a visit to Delphi. I had a lot of trouble finding the apartment because there are no visible street signs to help you find your way. We called Paris to let him know that we were lost and that we would be late for our appointment. His only suggestion to us was “hire a cab” which he told me numerous times. We drove some more and got closer to the apartment, but still could not locate it. After talking to him a second time, he threatened to leave and not let us have the apartment. To avoid losing the apartment and our deposit, we had to leave our car on a side street and hire a cab to drive us the final mile or so.

As for the apartment itself, on the good side it is a great location. A short walk gets you to Syntagma Square where you can hop on the Metro. There are also some great museums nearby. Although both the bathroom and kitchen are quite small, they have recently been updated and are nice. The shower is very tiny though.

On the negative side, the bed and mattress are very old and not very comfortable. The pillows also need to be replaced. To get by, we used our inflatable airplane pillows that we normally use on long flights. The outside entrance to the apartment is dark even during the daytime. Luckily my wife brought along a flashlight or we would have been fumbling with the lock each time we entered the apartment. No light at the entrance is also a security issue, although we always felt secure while exiting and entering the apartment.

Taken all together, we cannot recommend this apartment to future travelers. The attitude of the owner, Paris, was especially disappointing. He could have been more understanding of our predicament.

Owner's Response: Dear John, We are sorry that you felt unattended during arrival. Unfortunately it was impossible for us to guide you over the phone in driving through Athens without a map to assist you and since you could not explain to us where you were, the best advice we could give over the phone was to ask around for directions - we thought a taxi driver would be the best person to ask. Of course at no point did we imply that you would lose your reservation and it is disappointing to read this comment from someone who stayed in the apartment. If you remember initial arrival was planned sometime in the afternoon, which changed on your arrival day to around 16.00 with actual arrival at around 18.30; we waited for your arrival for 6.30 hours and informed you that we had another arrival to attend to at 19.00 and could return back to the apartment after 19.30 - yet apparently this was perceived as a threat.... As far as the apartment goes future guests should know that the bad bulb at the corridor has been replaced and the mattress will stay on for a bit longer given that it was only replaced last year and is orthopedic and perfect for the great majority of our guests. Thank you for posting a review. PT
