“Excellence above all”
We were met on time in front of the apartment by Nikos. Everything was perfectly clean, well appointed and ready for our stay. Nikos took the time to explain to us where everything was in the neighbourhood like the metro station, where to buy bread and groceries etc. We were surprised by how spacious and how silent the apartment was from outside noise. Everything one needed for a home away from home was provided for. :-) Excellent and can only highly recommend Nikos and his accommodation offerings
“A perfect apartment for our Christmas in Athens”
We spent Christmas in this apartment with my parents and our 2 adult children. It was a perfect base to come home to after days spent exploring Athens. The apartment was just as it is shown on the photos, beautifully presented and perfectly clean. Apart from preparing breakfast we didn't cook as we ate out every day but the kitchen was well equipped and everything was clean. There are plenty of supermarkets, bakeries etc nearby and the Metro is a very short walk away and easy to use. Nikos made all the organisation very easy by replying promptly to emails, booking taxis to and from the airport and giving us local advice when we arrived. We were very pleased we chose this apartment.
“What more could we need?”
Large apartment with all the equipment we needed, comfortable beds and sofas, and wifi. Very usefully there is in addition to the bathroom with a toilet another separate toilet so that when the bathroom was in use we didn't have to jump up and down on the spot waiting. There is a small, but sufficient for all our needs, supermarket 30 seconds walk away, a bread shop nearby and the Metro 5 minutes walk away from which it is just 2 stops to the centre of the city, and about 50 minutes to the airport with just one change of train. The apartment was not expensive and Nikos was entirely reliable and kept to all his promises. The only downside was the noise from outside although it was not too bad. We walked to the centre on the first day and it took a couple of hours but we walked slowly to get a feel of athens - every other shop having shut down and many empty office buildings due to the financial crisis but surprisingly the cafes busy with locals - as someone said if you only have a few Euro it is not enough to pay for rent, gas or electricity so you might as well spend it on coffee. As vegetarians we found it difficult to find main courses in ordinary restaurants but found the ideal solution was to order a number of starters for the main meal - no more expensive than a main course and an opportunity to taste traditional Greek cooking. Generally if we didn't order desert it was on the house. In the city we saw many of the ancient monuments but they did not come to life until we went to the National archaeological Museum, only 10 minutes walk from the apartment - an incredible place which we could have spent days in. It was amazing to see statues made about 7000 years ago
Response from the owner Dear Nigel, It's a central apartment with all benefits of living in the center (metro, taxis and public transortation in a few meters - close to all sights, Museums and Acrpolois) and only one downside: noise from the traffic. But even this will belong to the past in October when I intend to replace the balcony doors and windows with new noise-proof ones.
“Great apartment with amazing owner”
The apartment was spacious, very nicely decorated and well equipped. The air conditioning was amazing, and the owner was absolutely delightful! We enjoyed our stay in the apartment. The street noise was quite loud due to a bar located across the street and people hanging out until late in the night. However, if you bring earplugs for sleeping you will be just fine. The neighborhood is definitely not the prettiest, but we felt safe when there. The apartment is very close to the Victoria Metro Station and made getting around athens very easy. We tried to use taxi cabs like the apartment owner recommended, but we found it very difficult to communicate with them. Their ability to understand our English pronunciation was painful... even though they spoke English. Even having the address to our location written down didnt help much. My guess is that Latin-based languages are easier to decifer pronunciation differences between them. Not really anyone's fault. Just found that reading the Metro signs was easier. The Metro is very safe, clean and easy to navigate. Overall, if you are looking for a really nice apartment that is in a non-touristy part of athens, this is your place.
“A perfect place!”
The place was beautiful, spotless and very tastefully furnished. It was very spacious. It even had a dinning room. The location was also perfect. The appartment was at a five minute walk to Victoria metro. Ten minutes and you are at the acropolis station in the middle of all the great places to visit. The metro is clean, safe and easy to use. Nikos gave us great suggestions and told us where to get great coffee. Just as the reviews said, he was a great host. Keep in mind it's a busy street...reminds me of New York. Can get a bit noisy at night. Overall everything was great, I would stay there again.
“Great apartment - Comfy, Centrally Location”
My family of four enjoyed staying in this newly renovated comfortable apartment. The apartment is furnished nicely, very clean and luminous. It was a pleasure to come back after a long day out in athens. It is very well located to the subway, shops, etc. and had everything needed for our 10 day stay. Nikos is a wonderful host and I would recommend this place to others staying in athens.
“good location and pleasant apartment”
I spent a very pleasant four night stay with my family (4 altogether) and I was extremely satisfied. The apartment was clean and cosy, just some street noise. It is very well located. Syntagma square is an easy walk (15 minutes), a small supermarket is next door and the underground station is just round the corner. Nikos has been very helpful and easy to contact since we booked and throughout our stay and gave us neighbourhood orientation and advice. Surely recommend this to everyone.
