We stayed at Lily's apartment when we visited Athens in October. The place is a classic Athens apartment (elegantly appointed, spacious, has a deep veranda) and we liked it for what it is as well as the location - close to everything (Acropolis, Acropolis Museum, Plaka) but not smack in the middle of it. The street is quiet but I did not feel unsafe at any time. Lily is a gracious host too. This was perfect for us as a family.
