Spacious and Very Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

This is a large comfortable flat/apartment on the fourth floor that is loaded with all of the extras to make your stay in Athens worry-free. While the apartment is a little farther out from the center, it is easy to get to/from the center for an 8-10 euro taxi ride. This apartment is located in a very safe and family-friendly neighborhood. The first evening we were there, I walked one block to a Bio supermarket. While a few of the employees only spoke greek, there were enough employees who spoke english to help us find what we needed for dinner. Yes, the flat has all of the kitchen appliances and utensils necessary to cook a meal. And then we sat out on the balcony eating and watching the children playing across the street in the park. Two streets further down is a large square with bakeries, bars, cafes and shops. If you go one street further down and back one block to your left, there is a 24 hour market that has everything you could want-food, wine, sundries, etc. This is more for the locals, so only one employee spoke english, but again, it was easy to find what I needed.

When we arrived, we were met by Vivian who explained everything about the flat. She was gracious and very helpful answering our questions about where to go and what to see. She was also available to us by text throughout our stay-a real plus.

The flat is accessed by either stairs or a very small elevator. Think one person and a suitcase or two people and a purse. But it worked fine for our needs. The flat is very clean and well decorated. It is ideal for a couple or two couples traveling together. Children are fine, but I would say this flat would be better for older children-just my opinion. This flat also has a washer/dryer and drying racks, so we were able to do our laundry while relaxing in the apartment.

The flat is also a 12-15 euro drive to Piraeus. Well worth the trip, and if you are not on a tight budget let me suggest Zorbas restaurant where you can eat seated right next to the Gulf of Corinth. The food and service was exquisite. If you need a reliable driver, contact Minas at 30-697-411-9027. Very professional and he was the one who recommended Zorbas.

All-in-all, this was a great place to relax and unwind before we had to head back across the pond. I would recommend this flat and we would definitely book it again without hesitation.

Top Unterkunft in Athen

  • 5 of 5

Das Appartment hält in jeder Hinsicht was es hier verspricht.

Sehr modern, sehr sauber, alles was man braucht. Die Lage ist bestens, Einkaufsmöglichkeiten

und etliche Bars und Restaurants sind gleich um die Ecke. Mit der Tram (5min.) ist man schnell im Zentrum.

Alles drum herum hat super geklappt, ein großes Dankeschön an Marina.

perfect to visit Athens

  • 5 of 5

The flat is ideally located more or less half the way between the sea and the center. The tramway to go in both directions is around 8-10 minutes walking and the easiest and cheapest way to explore Athens and Piraeus. Nea Smyrna is a nice sub center where you find shops, cafe's, resaurants, in a nut shell all you need.

The flat itself is very well equipped and as it seemed to me recently renovated. Not only the flat itself but also the whole building is in good shape. The flat is nicely furnished and we did not miss anything and i would like to emphasize that there were really blankets and not only shsheets (as common in southern areas) and even the heating worked in the morning and evening when the temperatures went down outside.

All in all we enjoyed 10 wonderful spring days and can recommend it as a good choice (6 of 5 stars).
