What Past Guests Are Saying
Perfect location for your stay in athens
The level of service was excellent; very courteous, and knowledgeable about the city and the neighborhood. We were met at the Metro station and were taken to the unit and shown all of the features. The apartment was clean, spacious, and had an excellent outdoor space. The location was about three blocks from the new acropolis Museum, in a quiet building and safe area. Also, walking distance to the Plaka, the south side of the acropolis, other must-see historic sites, and great places to eat and shop. There is a convenience store on the corner, and a bakery and larger market about two blocks away. The only aspect of the apartment that might bother some were the church bells that rang fairly early in the morning. Totally happy with our stay, and would absolutely book the unit on a return visit.

excellent location to see the historic sites
The apartment is on the 4th floor of an older apartment building. To see the acropolis you have to crane your neck to see around the bell tower of the church whilst on the end of the balcony. But this apartment's fabulous location only 3 or 4 blocks from the south side of the acropolis can not be beat! The apartment is well managed by Boutique athens (our thanks for great and prompt service from Costas and Lia). The apartment is very clean with an uncluttered environment. The church across the street rings bells usually at 7 am daily. We were usually up anyway, so no problem. We were there during the orthodox holy week so there were more bells rung than usual and found it charming. And the church itself is a great landmark to find your way home through the old narrow streets.
Pluses: location, location, location. Great balcony, Good management company. Very safe and good area of town.
Minuses: very small shower area 2'x3' with clingy curtain so water gets all over bathroom floor (after a day or so we learned to manage by running shower water very slowly). Hardly any closet space. Tricky electric power - if you run the stove and boil a kettle at the same time the power trips off (but this may be the same everywhere in the older buildings of athens).
Not suitable for people with disabilties - there are about 10 stairs at the entrance before you can reach the elevators.

Good to hear that you enjoyed staying in the apartment. And you are so right about the location! It's one of my favourite areas in Athens. But then I am a city girl!
I just want you to know that we are adding a new couch and more closet space.
We will also look at the electric power and the shower. Thank you for pointing this out!
Enjoy your travels.
Stayed for four nights. Nice to be in a neighborhood with shops,easy walk to sights, museums and the Plaka.. Lots of restaurants nearby. A waiter at one of them lived in the same building! Bathroom very tiny but has nice toiletries. The bells from the beautiful church were startling at first, but after while we got used to them. Appreciated the free internet connection.Since the demonstrations and strikes were going on, we appreciated the offer for a pick up at the airport.
Nice apartment, great location
We stayed in this apartment for 4 nights. Because of a conflict in schedules, we did not get a tour of the neighborhood, but that is offered and would be very helpful. The location is great - out of the craziness but just a few minutes walk from the Plaka, Acropolis and the metro. There is a nearby grocery, cell phone shop, and cafes. This is a nicely furnished and comfortable place. The terrace is great and the washer very useful. The bathroom is nicely done if tiny and it is hard to keep it dry when showering. It is on a fairly busy street, but it is high up and has great soundproofing. Be aware that there is some bell ringing from the church across the street in the mornings, but it is worth it because it is a pretty building. You can only see a slice of the acropolis from the balcony. The kitchen is missing a microwave, but other that that is well furnished. The owners were very responsive in answering all question. We would definitely stay again.

Outstanding quality accommodation, close to historic centre.
We stayed in this well-fitted apartment for 2 nights in July 2011. It is situated just a few minutes walk from the acopolis Museum, and the Plaka area which makes it an ideal base for exploring athens.
The accommodation, including the spacious balcony, was very comfortable and had everything needed for an enjoyable stay. We, and our teenage daughter, greatly appreciated the free WiFi and complimentary Korres toiletries. We look forward to staying in the apartment again on our next visit to athens.
An excellent alternative to a hotel stay, and superb value for money.
