This apartment is a relaxing refuge just a few steps from a major avenue. The unit itself is lovely--good kitchen facilities (we cook for ourselves when we travel, so this matters to us), nice bathroom, separate bedroom and living room. The location is superb! Walking 15 minutes, you can get to the Metro, Akropolis, Central Market, National Garden, Lycabettus Hill, Plaka, Panathenaic Stadium, Benaki Museum, Syntagma Square. The unit is on a pedestrian lane. There are little shops and markets nearby, plus a grocery store about 15 minutes away. The neighborhood felt safe.
The host's directions before arrival were comprehensive and clear, and our communication during our stay was helpful.
This was a really good rental at a very good price.
The flat was lovely and modern and nice and roomy with a large LCD TV with only one English channel (BBC World News). It was within walking distance of most of the main historic sites in Athens and very close to the no 2/4/11 trolleybus stop. There was no kettle so we had to boil water in a pan on the electric hob. There was no toaster so we had to use the electric oven to toast bread. There was a lovely large fridge freezer and the hob worked very well however we did miss not having a microwave. The shower was spacious and worked very well. The bed was very comfortable and it was nice a dark with the blinds shut, however the single glazed patio windows did not cut out the noise from noisy motorbikes from the main road adjacent to the side of the flat so it was difficult to sleep.
There was no view or sunlight as the patio doors opened onto a concrete wall with four stories of flats above it. It felt a bit depressing but at least it was private. The entrance to main building was nice and clean but there was a terrible smell of either rotting garbage or bad drains in the hallway outside the flat. We had to put a carpet across the bottom of the door to stop the smell coming in. After a few days some people came to clean it up and wedged the main door open. This improved it a lot but the smell was still present at a lower level for the rest of our stay.
Parking in the area was free but very difficult to find; any space was quickly taken by drivers hunting for a space. We drove around for quite a while and were very lucky to find a space on the 2 nights we had a hire car.
Highly recommend this appartment on great location ,near city center & with very helpful host. Appartment is really nice, new and very clean and we even got suppries gifts in fridge from our host! Thx for everything Thano, we had great time!
Location is great, we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. The place is quite spacious and has everything you need and more (I kept thinking, 'wow, he thought of everything'). Athanasios is very friendly and helpful. I would definitely love to return soon!
We really enjoyed our stay on that apartment, in Pangrati area, just a few meters from Panathenaic Stadium. A lovely place, in a great, quiet and safe neighborhood, made for a wonderful experience. There are many things in walking distance like museums, Syntagma square, tram/bus stops, parks, great restaurants, cafes, top bars, bakeries, etc.
Thanos, the owner, friendly and helpful, was there to greet us and kindly showed us the well outfitted and renovated apartment. It was exactly what we expected, equipped with high tech systems and all facilities we needed. Stylish, comfortable and lovely in 3 words. Ideal for a couple, or family, or a person doing tourism or business travelers.
We highly recommend this place!
