Loved this apartment. Located in a very nice and safe neighbourhood across from the National Garden and many embassies. The neighbourhood in behind is a great oasis to avoid the more touristy areas and heavy traffic. There are also tons of shops,
and restaurants nearby, so self-cater or eat out. There are nearby banks (ATMs) and a kiosk almost out the front door. Kiosks are like small corner shops, but with beer and wine too! Within a very short walk are the National Gardens, 1896 Olympic Stadium and the Temple of Zeus. Only a few minutes beyond those attractions are the Acropolis and the Plaka. The apartment is very roomy, separate bedroom, bath and kitchen. Big living room and dining area. The street out front can be noisy with the heavy Athens traffic, but the double patio doors do cut out 90% of it. Our only recommendation would be to if they could leave more detailed instructions for things like the oven and TV listing. If you want to relax and enjoy real Athenian life only minutes from the major attractions this is the place.
This apartment is the best one that I have ever stayed aroud the globe, I travel a lot and I am so glad I came across this one. If you like home from home comforts this place has it all, the welcome was first class, on arrival a quick tour of the property from its owner Maria. the photographs you see are actual real photos of the apartment, huge lounge/ diner, large kitchen with everything you would require on your visit, large balcony. large bedroom with a bed to die for, the most comfortable one I have ever slept on , home from home with many comforts, free wi fi , with satelite tv. 5 minute walk through beautiful gardens of Zappion to the centre of Athens at Syntagma square, nearest beach is a 15 minute tram ride, all within reach of tyhe apartment, I reccommend this apartment for a first class holiday home from home.
