Such a lovely colorful apartment in a quiet neighborhood. The Owner met me with keys and explained the apartment, t.v. etc. Fully equipped eat in kitchen, with basic supplies including coffee! Apartment was almost too big for just me! Large comfortable bed with nice colored sheets. Bathroom shower with lots of hot water and enough towels. Living room couch so soft and comfy. I felt really at home watching the television at night.

A supermarket was down the block and a number of bakery shops. The metro was a short walk away. The neighborhood felt safe. The Owner stopped by to give me a homemade cake which was delicious. nothing more was needed.

The only problem that I had and not a fault on the Owner or the apartment was that it was a little far away from the central part of Athens. Although it is only about ten minutes away by subway, it was not really close enough to walk to any of the archaeological sites during the day. Having a car would certainly be ideal.

I would certainly recommend it to others especially a couple and families. it is a clean, light, comfortable place with a wonderful caring Owner.

pur stay

We had a great stay at this apartment. Close to the metro, eateries and coffee shop. I was not a fan of Athens but that has nothing to do with the apartment.

Shiny Happy Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a comfortable stay here. The owner, Ms. Sofia is very friendly and very helpful, she suggested many places to go for sightseeing and where it is cheaper but good to eat. The apartment is so cute and colorful and I have a 2 yr. old son who loves to run all over the house, but it was okay since the apartment is child friendly. I don't really recommend renting a car if the goal is to go sightseeing in Athens, from airport it is so easy to access Kato Patissia Station by train. The apartment is located 5 minutes walk from the metro station so it was so easy. There is a close grocery store open until 8 p.m. to buy your necessities such as baby's diaper, shampoo etc. An there are also good bakeries and cafe restaurants for breakfast. It's not easy to get lost as people are very nice to help if asked for directions. Me and my husband were very glad to stay in Shiny Happy Apartment, and we highly recommend this apartment specially for people with kids.

Our review of Shiny Happy Happy Apartment People

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay at this apartment. The apartment is as advertised and is very comfortable. Sofia, the apartment owner, met us on our first night and was extremely helpful, cheerful, and friendly. The apartment is within easy walking distance of the Kato Patissia metro station. After a day of touring Athens, coming back to the apartment was a relaxing and pleasant experience with a real neighborhood feel. We had a rental car and free parking was available. We highly recommend this apartment for those travelers who want to have a local flavor for their Athens visit, not for those who need a western hotel experience. You will find Sofia to be a charming and very knowledgeable host. Opa!

Shiny and awesome apartment nearby the centre

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is located close to "Katio Patissa" station, just a few Metro stops from the centre. In the district you can find anything you like, from markets to all shops you need on holiday. The hosts (Sofia & Miltos) are wonderful, they're very kind and helpful for all the issues you can have during your stay. Sofia, on our request, arranged for us a meal and it was awesome: at least we've tasted some traditional food cooked by real greeks.

If you want to stay fine and enjoy your holidays I can only advice you this choice, it'll be the right one!
