Reviews for this host's other properties
Very nice large apartment in the very center of Athens, but in a quiet and silent area. Helena and co-workers attentions were splendid. Good time in Atherns
We were few days in Athens and we travel one day with Vassilis to Peloponnesus. Everything was great. We enjoyed a lot the trip with Vassilis because of his recomendations and explanations. The apartment is on a perfect location, just few minutes walking to the acropolis (althougt it is not visible from the window). It has 3 HVACs, and it had everything we needed. Very well in general.
Nice little apartment for 3. Equipped with the most necessary. Nice close to the subway. Close to the sights. It's okay that this lies partly in the basement, but this should be in the description. Happy to recommend the apartment and look forward to return.
Fin lille lejlighed til 3. Udstyret med det mest nødvendige. Dejlig tæt på metroen. Tæt på seværdighederne. Det er i orden, at det ligger delvist i kælderen, men dette bør stå i beskrivelsen. Anbefaler gerne lejligheden og kommer gerne igen.
We enjoyed a lot our stay. Chryssa was so kind with us when we arrived. The house was nice and near to the city centre.
Large apartment in line with the description, located in a quiet area just steps from the promenade and the Acropolis museum. The view from the terrace is beautiful. We made use of the shuttle and it was a deal, we were in 4 and we only spent 32 euro, cheaper than a taxi! And then a gentle salute to Marietta who handled our transfers, also spoke Italian and made us a guide during the journey to and from the apartment.
See you soon ☺

Grande appartamento in linea con la descrizione, situato in una zona tranquilla a due passi dalla passeggiata pedonale e dal museo dell'Acropoli. La vista dal terrazzo è bellissima. Abbiamo usufruito del servizio di navetta ed è stato un affare, eravamo in 4 e abbiamo speso solo 32 euro, meno di un taxi! E poi un saluto alla gentilissima Marietta che si è occupata del nostro transfer, parlava anche italiano e ci ha fatto da guida durante il viaggio da e per l'appartamento.
A presto ☺

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;)
