This is a fantastic choice when staying in Athens. We stayed for 4 nights and were extremely happy with our choice of accommodation. The location is great we easily walked to most of the main tourist sites. Also has the added bonus of being near a great shopping street. There's so many options for eating out just a few steps away. The apartment itself is absolutely perfect. We stayed in 502 the largest. It was very modern with quirky decor and spotlessly clean. Even though it is in a very busy neighbourhood we never had an issue with noise. We live in the countryside where you can hear a pin drop at night so I often find it hard to sleep in cities. However,the comfy bed, air-con and black out blinds made for a great nights sleep. The use of a washing machine & dryer is also available.I have to end this review on how great Greg at Minilux is. He greeted us with a big smile and warm welcome even though we ran later than our intended arrival time. We got great tips about the area from him. He was always very courteous and helpful. Ps the view of the Acropolis is superb.
Vey well done and kept appartments. Spotlessly clean, well equipped and stocked with a kitchen and everything you need for your stay. Everything very generously provided. Very friendly and helpful people, proud of what they do.
Perfect location for walking everywhre in the center of Athens and the important sites and museums. One minute's walk from the metro station that brings you from the airport or the port.
Excellent value for money (in fact, we would be happy if charged 25% more).
UNIqUE, UNOBSTRUCTED VIEW OF THE ACROPOLIS. Beatiful, all hours of the day and night. Money is not enough for this.
We stayed in an apartment with a view of the Parthenon and considered for a while whether it was worth it and it definitely was! The room was big and spacious. Really nice staff, a great nights sleep and we could walk to pretty much any attraction we wanted to go to as well as it only being 2 minutes walk for the metro from the airport! Highly recommend :) thanks for the stay.
Our flight was late arriving, and our taxi dropped us off near the apartment. The host (who had been waiting and looking for us) came down the street to meet us and bring us to the apartments. There were four of us including two teenage boys, so we got 2 apartments. We were so thrilled when we opened the door to see how nice, new and luxurious everything was. The most amazing part for my husband and me was the view of the Acropolis! My boys were so excited with the smart TV which had Netflix! As mentioned in other reviews, there was complimentary fruit, coffee, tea and water. The apartment was within walking distance of everything! We never even had to use the metro. Since it was pretty hot when we were in Athens, we always took a mid afternoon break to come back to the cool apartment to relax. This was by far our favorite accommodation for our twelve night European trip and highly recommend it to everyone!
Stayed for one night here while in transit. Wish we had stayed longer. First of all amazing location right in the heart of Athens close to the old mosque. We managed to get a sight seeing bus right outside the complex which was perfect for a one night stay. The placa is walking distance and great Buzz.
The rooms are fantastic and one of the best nights sleep so far. It's not a hotel so the rooms have a small studio kitchenette which is well decked for longer stays. Rooms are clean, well appointed and nicely decorated. The apartment complex as well is very well decorated; a little kitsch but I liked it. Saving the best till last; get the Acropolis viewing rooms. Stunning view day and night and rooms are set up with a mini living room so you just gaze at this wonder. I would thoroughly recommend and surprise there aren't more reviews!!! (Gregg - I think it may be because the review system is asking for last names at time of reviews which is unusual?)
We arrived and Yianni was waiting for us at the entrance with his charming smile. A friendly greeting from Greg, who may I say went above and beyond to assist us with
A personal issue.. The gentlemen were very professional and super accommodating.
Upon entering the apartment I think we stood with our mouth open a little too long!!!
Stunning eclectic decor with amazing undisturbed views of the acropolis, even while laying on the super comfortable bed! Complementary fruit and breakfast supplies including coffee pod machine and ample tea,sugar, milk. Free use of the washing machine and dryer including washing powder/softener basket and drying rack, ironing board and iron.
Great selection of books to browse through large flat screen TV free wifi and a rocking chair. Two air conditioning units.
All this at the doorstep of Monastiraki, Plaka and Metro.
Definitely our highest recommendation.

Couldn't want for a better location for a stay in Athens. A minutes walk from Monastiraki Metro (direct line to airport) easy walking to all the shops, bars & eateries in and around Psiri, Plaka, Syntagma and of course Monastiraki. The hosts Janis & Greg are extremely accomodating and helpful, wait for you outside on your arrival (a little difficult to find first time) provide a large well appointed apartment with nice touches such as fruit bowl and breakfast supplies for your first day. Superb view of Acropolis and a litte haven to retreat from what must be one of the best locations in this part of the city. Would definately stay again. Thank you Janis and Greg.
