The best hosting!
This lovely 2-room combines the proximity to the center (12 minutes walk of the acropolis) and quiet, which is very rare in Athens. It is bright and fresh (double exposure, two balconies, and air conditioning if necessary in both parts), in a green and quiet area with shops close by.
It is well equipped with oven, microwave, washing machine, coffee machine ...
the availability and kindness of the hosts is unparalleled.
Special mention to Chrissa, who took me to get my son to the airport at two in the morning, and that has made this trip a moment of sharing and friendship.
I have only one desire, to return asap!
Le meilleur hébergement possible!
Ce joli 2 pièces conjugue la proximité avec le centre (12 mn à pied de l'acropole) et le calme, ce qui est très rare dans Athènes. Il est clair et frais (double exposition, deux balcons, et la climatisation si nécessaire dans les deux pièces), dans un quartier vert et tranquille, avec tous les commerces à deux pas.
Il est bien équipé: four, micro onde, lave-linge, machine à café...
la disponibilité et la gentillesse des hôtes sont sans égales.
Mention spéciale à Chrissa, qui m'a emmenée chercher mon fils à l'aéroport à deux heures du matin, et qui a fait de ce trajet un moment de partage et d'amitié.
Je n'ai qu'une envie, y retourner au plus vite!
We stay at a property Vassilis and Helena rent near the Acropolis Museum (they maintain several in the Makrygianni-Koukaki neighborhood, near the Acropolis and its convenient Metro stop). The couple maintain their apartments beautifully, have well-equipped, very usable kitchens, and comfortable verandahs for enjoying the evening view across the Athenian rooftops. They've also chosen a neighborhood with a laundromat and a convenient little grocery, which makes a great deal of difference if your stay more than a day or two.
The folks they use to handle the little issues that crop up with any flat are also alert, responsive, and very friendly to deal with. Add into the bargain good internet, their own book about the antique look of the surrounding neighborhoods (the couple are urban historians a bit on the side) and these are excellent places to stay.
Accommodation with 2 very old bathrooms (with pipes that smelled bad and some cockroaches), located on the ground floor in a corner of a very circulée road until 1am (the buses running at 1m window ), so very noisy and polluted.
Logement avec 2 salles de bain très vetustes (avec des canalisations qui sentaient mauvais et quelques cafards), situé au rez de chaussée dans un virage d'une route très circulée jusqu'à 1 heure du matin (les bus passaient à 1m de la fenetre), donc très bruyant et pollué.
Everything was perfect!!!! The apartmet really confortable, and near to the tram which is directly connected with Santagma Square and the metro. We really appreciated our vacation in Athens and surely we will come. Thanks to Helena and a big hug to Cryssa, beautiful person, always available and really kind. We could't choose better than this. Thanks
We stayed at this lovely appartment one night with my boyfriend, my brother, his wife and their 11 months old baby girl. It was perfectly located for a brief visit of Athens! Very cute and well maintained appartment in a quiet residential area 10-15 minutes to the Acropolis!
We will be back;)
Wow just what we needed for a 6 day stay in Athens, 2 bedrooms with good beds, small kitchen with everything you need, bathroom adequate, lounge area large with huge verandah. Restaurants and supermarkets at your door step. The base of the Acropolise only a 5 minute walk. Greeting and key hand over completed with ease. A great place to stay.
They came to pick up at the airport at night, Elena and her friend two very sympathetic and nice women. The apartment is 10 minutes from the acropolis spacious and very clean, in a very quiet neighborhood, let us all necessary information. A stay of 10. Totally recommended.
Nos vinieron a recoger al aeropuerto de noche, Elena y su amiga dos mujeres muy simpáticas y agradables. El piso esta a 10 min de la acropolis amplio y muy limpio, en un barrio muy tranquilo, nos dejaron toda la información necesaria. Una estancia de 10. Totalmente recomendable.
Advantages of this apartment are particularly favorable and quiet location in a residential area near the center. The friendly and helpful landlord and hospitable neighbor made that we quickly felt at home. The landlord to wait half an hour in front of the reception on the first day I found less enjoyable; a text message I had appreciated about delays.
I do not know, the default in Athens but we found the apartment - especially the bathroom - which primitive. Renovated in 2014 is not much notice. Apartment building stairwell eyes and poorly maintained. The terrace turned out - different than I had seen from the description - generally accessible flat roof of the building.
Pluspunten van dit appartement zijn de gunstige en vooral rustige ligging in een woonwijk vlak bij het centrum. De vriendelijke en behulpzame verhuurder en de gastvrije buurman maakten dat wij ons er snel thuis voelden. Dat de verhuurder een half uur op zich wachten voor de ontvangst op de eerste dag vond ik minder plezierig; een sms-je over vertraging had ik op prijs gesteld.
Ik ken de standaard in Athene niet, maar wij vonden het appartement - vooral de badkamer - wat primitief. Van de renovatie in 2014 is niet veel te merken. Flatgebouw en trappenhuis ogen slecht onderhouden. Het terras bleek - anders dan ik uit de beschrijving had opgemaakt - het algemeen toegankelijke platte dak van het gebouw.
Our family of 5 very much enjoyed the apartment, overall. We were met promptly by a kind and enthusiastic associate who got us settled in. The apartment was close to all the places we wished to visit (by foot)! The space was roomy, clean , and quiet. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes. The terrace was very large, but we wished that there was an awning, as you could not be out on it in the direct sunshine. Also, all 4 deck chairs were broken (seats ripped and could not bear weight). There were travel books available for our use, and were appreciated. Would recommend the apartment!
The area of Helena's apartment is quiet and safe.
The location is perfect - straight connection (several tram station) with the center of the city and at the same time with the beaches at the seaside.
There is a park at the same street and large shopping area in the distance of one tram station.
The apartment is very clean and comfortable.
Full information is clearly given for the guests - concerning all the things a tourist is looking in the city.
The host is very friendly, open and offers her sincere help. In fact you fill like under your mother's care.
When visiting Athens again I will try to come back to Helen'a apartment.
