Absolutely perfect place to stay and see Athens. Just a few stops on the tube from the centre and in a quiet residential neighbourhood. There are bakeries and restaurants very close by. The flat itself is fantastic, newly refurbished to a very high standard. The hosts were very helpful too, there was even a tablet with lots of information about the locality and Athens as a whole. This is a really great way to experience Athens - heartily recommended.
From the moment I arrived at the apartment I felt like I was at home!! Actually, even before then! Rena and Giannis made sure I had a smooth arrival from the moment the airplane landed :) The apartment was absolutely wonderful - spotless, modern and cozy!! Rena and Giannis also recommended key sights to see and restaurants to try to ensure that I had a true Athenian experience. The apartment also has a tablet with locations to travel to along with basic information regarding Athens, which was extremely helpful. The apartment is roughly a 5 min walk to the transit (all the routes and metro lines that I needed to take were detailed in the tablet). To get to downtown Athens it was ~5 metro stops and took me ~10mins. The train is very inexpensive about 2 euro one way and the ticket is valid for all trips taken within an hour and half time window. The apartment is conveniently located next to some restaurants, bakeries, coffee shops and grocery stores. I would strongly recommend booking this apartment!! When I come back to Athens, I am definitely staying here again!
Giannis and Rena are such excellent hosts!!!They have thought of everything up to the last detail. They are very friendly and willing to give you all the information and assist your needs. When you enter the apartment the feeling you get is that you are in a 6* star hotel!!! That is how amazing the apartment is. Unique, even better than the photos!! It is spacious, it has all the comforts you may need and it is in a quiet and safe neighborhood. The building is new and the atmosphere is very nice and cozy. The calmness and the quiet from the big balcony makes you want to stay there for hours relaxing and enjoying it.(I did that with a nice glass of wine!) Huge advantage is the transportation. The metro and the bus station is 2min away. Practically taking you everywhere in Athens. In this price range i don't believe that you can find anything to beat Giannis and Rena's deal, combining location,amenities, super friendly service and hosts! Thank you Giannis and Rena!!!Looking forward to be back soon..
