Reviews of this property
Helena & Vassilis are that kind of hosters that one would like to meet ever. Very attentive and caring. The Studio is very comfy and you can find yourself as if you were at your own home -every detail is taken into consideration. Lovely terrace to spend there a few time sunbathing.
Let there be No doubt this was a 5 ***** Experience! Let me first say that your hosts are well traveled and know exactly how you may feel when you first arrive with a million questions. Not only do they take the time to listen and learn what you want to do, they even offer you great ideas and the must see places complete with a map, budget friendly transportation suggestions, and a wonderful packet of info that will become your best friend. To further give you an additional picture of your thoughtful hosts, imagine your first day out & about in the beautiful city of Athens and you receive a text message or a phone call, your choice, asking you if you need anything, are you finding your way around OK, or the old is everything all right? Ladies & Gentleman that is Class & an Awesome Feeling. Your hosts go above and beyond to ensure that You are the Queen or King and they will do everything they can to make sure you enjoy your vacation. Moving on to the flat that has it's very own private entry, this really becomes your home away from home. You have several super markets, cafes, restaurants, banks etc, all with in 2-10 minute walk from your door step. You will appreciate having your own Private home with a private bathroom, Safe, Clean, Quiet, and all the extra comforts at NO additional costs, such as your own personal air conditioning, international cable TV, a huge list of DVDs or video movies, a refrigerator, microwave, a hot kettle, etc. Let me not forget the lovely large balcony that you will enjoy IMMENSELY! Your Private balcony offers you incredible views of the city of Athens. You get to enjoy the beautiful safe balcony surrounded by an array of plants. Imagine an evening sipping a glass of wine sampling the lovely Greek cheeses & crackers under the stars sitting around a large teak table or just laying back in the comfy arm chairs with the lights dimmed low with some quiet background music, while you and whom ever is lucky enough to join you, really get to enjoy the stellar views of the city of Athens by night! If you want to take advantage this Gem in the heart of Athens do book quickly & early. The calender does tend to fill up quite rapidly. I am pleased to say your hosts are dynamite in getting back immediately. Cheers and Happy Traveling!
This was a 5* experience! Amazing professional, with a personal touch, service. Starting from the very moment i booked the place, when i received to my email, a couple of documents, with suggested places to visit and useful info and sites, to organize my trip to Greece. Saved me a lot of hours searching the web. Yes, do use Helena’s & Vassilis’s suggestions and transportation services. It will save you money and time, plus you got information that no book will offer to you and see Greece through locale’s eyes. The studio is exactly as it is described. Magnificent view of Athens from the veranda (especially during the night, Acropolis is fantastic), ideal to reach port or airport, next to the sea, just outside the center of Athens. A small tip. In Athens centre, takes place almost every other day a strike or demonstration. Consult your hosts about them, otherwise you will find yourself in front of the doors of a closed museum. For the same reason, i was happy that i did not booked something in the centre as the noise, the traffic jam and the blocked streets was something that i did not want to experience. The studio is private, has a new mattress, great free, fast wi fi internet, basic cooking facilities, but i do not think anyone should stay inside and cook, with such great restaurants nearby the house or the shops next to the sea at Marina. A nice surprise was a couple of interesting museums next to the house. I would like to thank Vassilis for insisting to visit them. Also our hosts helped me realize, that using Athens as a base i can visit a lot of places around it with 1 day excursions (islands, Nafplion, Sounio – a must visit-) (Vassilis is a perfect combination of safe driver and guide….thank you for the music tips!). All in all, the studio is great for up to 3 adults, but your hosts are amazing. Thank you Helena & Vassilis for helping me to make the most from my trip. I will be back to make the sailing tour you told me about!
Reviews for this host's other properties
Muy buena ubicación, perfecto para disfrutar a diario de la ciudad y de sus playas utilizando el metro y tranvía urbano. El equipo de Helena siempre disponible y el servicio del transfer del aeropuerto también genial.
The appartment is very central. You can reach the most important spots of both history and nightlife in just a few minutes. The appartment offers the basics for a stay in Athens for a few days. The kitchen is very basic. The bathroom is just 1 m2, and therefor the complete room serves as shower and vice versa. Unusual, but it works. The appartment is small. Not more than 15 m2. The terasse is very big (20 m2) but in full sun, without shadow from the early morning until about 5 o'clock (in summertime). On a sunny day the terasse can be hot like an oven. The air condition workes very well, and the appartment is clean. The Wifi is very weak (toggles between 0 and 1 dot), but sufficient for a smartphone. Working with labtop was completely impossible. It is very easy to reach the appartment from the airport by metro line 3. Duration 42 minutes to Station "Keramikos ". It costs 10 € (July 2017).
La casa es preciosa y muy cuidada, super limpia. Está a cinco minutos de la Acrópolis y el barrio tiene muchos comercios y bien comunicado. El anfitrión fue encantador. La información que te proporcionan es muy útil.
The apartament was so good! The location is near to the best places to see in Athens. The only bad thing was there WiFi connection, it is so slow.
The appartment was smaller than I thought. It was clean and enough kitchen facilities. It is located close to the centre and underground, so I could easely go everywhere. I didn't met the owners during my stay. When you don't need much and a good bed, a kitchen and airco than this is a good appartment.
El apartamento está en una zona tranquila, céntrica y bien comunicado. En el barrio de thisio, hay dos paradas de metro muy cerca, aunque puedes desplazarte andando ya que el centro está a pocos minutos.
Nos lo entregaron perfectamente limpio y fueron muy amables al permitirnos entrar algo antes para dejar las maletas.
No es muy grande, pero suficiente para dos personas. Tiene cocina equipada, aunque eché en falta un hervidor de agua, y la terraza es espectacular.
Totalmente recomendable. Repetiría
The appartment was very clean and quiet, despite the location very close (walking distance) to Acropolis and touristic center of Athens. Super market and restaurants are around the corner. Bring detergents for washing machine and dish washer !
