Very beautiful, clean and clear near to the centre

  • 5 of 5

We had a very beautiful stay in this modern and clean apartment. It is located in a calm area only 200m from Dafni Metro Station which is pretty close to the centre of Athens.

The accomodation is well equipped: very good beds, clean bathroom, Wifi, etc.

There is a lot of space and as the apartment is on the upper floor you have a bright sight on both sides of the building above the roofs of the area. If I have to give one single negative remark it would be concerning the kitchen stove which is not working very well. But anyway we were very happy with the appartment and the surrounding and next time we return to Athens we certainly will try to stay in the same place again!

By the way, the stylish lift with the mirror and the music turning on each time you use the lift was really funny. ;-)

Perfect for Greek-American family!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six could not have been happier with this apartment. It is situated in a true Greek neighborhood. We, at all times, felt safe and comfortable. The view from the balcony was wonderful, and one our fondest memories is eating bougatses on the balcony for breakfast. The supermarket, pharmacies and local tavernas as well as the metro are only 5 minute walk away. The taverna 'Ladokolla' is super close, and the 5 storey supermarket 'Sklavenitis' has everything you could possibly imagine (so don't worry if you need to buy an extra pair of shorts or flip-flops.) Plus it carries some of the best bougatses in Athens! The living room/kitchen area is bigger than it appears online. Each room has it's own separate air-conditioning unit, which is awesome. All windows have screens. The only time we couldn't enjoy the balcony was in the evening when the sun was strong, but we were usually out at that time. The washing machine worked great and the balcony included multiple clothes-line hanging units, which were very handy. The entire apartment, inside and out was very clean. We arrived at 10pm from the metro, in July, and the whole area was filled with locals at tavernas, coffee shops, etc. And yet the apartment itself is very quiet and peaceful, since it is 1-2 blocks from the nearest taverna. Given the opportunity, God willing, we will back!

Clean, great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in mid October 2016. The apartment is as pictured and the lift appears to be new (needed as apartment is on the 5th floor). Very quiet as we never saw or heard anyone else in the building. The location is a 3 min walk to the metro station and there are also a ton of restaurants and a huge supermarket by the station.

The apartment did not have fabric softener and was low on dishwashing soap but other than that it was well stocked.

We never met the owner (Persi) but he responded quickly to all of our questions so no issues there. He even let us stay late on our last day as we had a late flight. Overall, a great apartment!

A wonderful apartment for travelers from Canada

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at this wonderful two bedroom apartment. Our host was very accommodating and easy to contact regarding questions and concerns. The owner put our minds to ease and went above and beyond by doing a bit of groceries for us before we arrived as we were coming with young children late in the evening. The home was extremely clean and well kept. There were plenty of bed linens and towels and the necessary items for the kitchen as we were staying for about 5 weeks. The balcony was beautiful. The location was ideal as well. It was just a minute walk to restaurants, the metro, shopping and more. We could even walk to the Acropolis which was only about 3km away, if we chose. The neighbourhood was welcoming and having the grocery store and a 24 hour bakery nearby was helpful. It seemed to be a safe place and I could trust my children to be safe as well. The only thing we were not used to, was the smaller fridge than what we have here in Canada. I'm not sure if that is a common European size. However, it met our needs. We had the time of our lives in Athens and I would highly recommend that people stay at this property. It was away from tourist traps and the prices of food, clothing and all needed items were more than reasonable. The area is great for families or people willing to explore and get a real feel for how people live in Greece. The metro and bus system was easy to use and extremely convenient. No car needed. Also most sights are nearby and can be seen by foot.

Good location for easy access to Athens

  • 4 of 5

Pros: Location 2 blocks to Dafni Metro. Spacious,clean, pictures very representative.Lots of restaurants, cafes, grocery stores near by. Handy to have a washing machine. Balcony comfortable. Good to have an elevator as apt is on the 5th floor. Owner quick to respond to emails.

Cons: Fickle electrical panel that needs to be switched for hot water, may be a problem with solar heating. Modest selection of cooking utensils, no microwave for heating left overs.

Overall I would recommend this apt, especially for families.

Comfortable and Clean in a Safe Neighborhood and Convenient to the Metro

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this apartment in Athens. It was very large, clean and quiet. My husband, 11 year old son and I were very comfortable. We loved the spacious balcony and enjoyed sitting out there and soaking up the sun. The neighborhood was very quiet and safe and it was only about a 3 minute walk to the metro, shops, restaurants, and a large grocery store in Dafni Square. It was super easy and inexpensive to take the metro to the Acropolis and all the sites. It took less than 15 minutes to walk to the metro and arrive at the Acropolis stop. The people in Greece were so kind and friendly. We had a wonderful stay. I would definitely recommend this apartment to others.
