About the property

The apartment is located in the center of Athens, is walking distance from the Acropolis and it’s new museum and the ancient temple of Olympian Zeus with easy access to the metro station «acropoli».

The area is nice and safe and it was recently designed and fully renovated by the architect Efi Skarlatou.

The apartment’s size is 70 square meters, has a lot of natural sunlight and is divided in two spaces: the living room with TV-DVD, fully equipped kitchen and the bedroom with a bathroom which has a glass partition and marble interior for hygiene and luxury.

Both spaces are comfortable, have beautiful materials and guarantee a delightful stay.

Ideal for a couple. A sofa turns into a bed in the living room for a third and a forth person or a child.

The services offered include:

1/ Hot water

2/ Two times a week cleaning

3/ Balcony side view of the ancient temple of Olympian Zeys with a table and chairs.

4/ Fully equipped kitchen for cooking

5/ Refrigerator

6/ Air conditioning

7/ Electric iron

8/ Central heating

9/ Secure entrance door

10/ TV-DVD

11/ Coffee maker and boiler for tea

The apartment's location is perfect for exploring Athens.

It's walking distance from the top sites such as the Acropolis, the temple of Zeus, Syntagma square, Dionysiou areopagitou walk, the temple of Ifaistos, and Herodion open air ancient theater where one can see great performances during the summer under the Acropolis!

Right outside the ground floor entrance is a bus station, in 2 minutes walk is a tram station that you can take to get to the beach, and in 10 minutes walk is a metro station that can take you all over the city.

One metro stop away is the flea market and Monastiraki square and also the art gallery area.

Many important museums and the heart of business and fashion of the city are a couple of stops away.

Great location, Clean and easy stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a few days at Efi's apartment. It was clean and well appointed but best of all was the location. It is minutes from all the keys sites, grocery stores, restaurants, the Plaka, museums etc. Efi helped organize a shuttle back to the airport at 4AM. I would readily recommend this apartment for a stay in Athens.

On a side note, the Metro stop ~8 minute walk away. We tried to use Siri but she is hopeless in Athens and after several wrong turns it all begins to resemble a maze. Best to get good directions in advance or you may end up sweaty and frustrated like we did. Once Efi rescued us she provided the key landmarks and it was smooth sailing.

Quiet, comfortable oasis

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment for 5 nights and could not have been happier. Efi was a pleasure to deal with and always responded promptly to emails. On arrival, she spent at least 30 minutes with us, showing us all the amenities of the apartment and sharing her favourite sights and experiences of Athens so that we would not miss anything. The apartment was as pictured, spacious and clean with a fully equipped kitchen. The wifi was great, always worked well, from every room. The location is terrific, only about 6 minutes from the Acropolis Musum, 5 minutes from Hadrian's Gate. There is a large supermarket in the other direction, just ask Efi. The washing machine was very handy with soap powder provided. Thank you, Efi for a brilliant stay.

W've spent 9 nights in this beautiful apartment in May.Efi has designed the spacious apartment in a very clear and excellent style, just as the photos show it on the web-site! Kitchen and TV are on a high level,the bath-room is breathtaking ! Even though the area is very busy you scarcely become aware of the streets noise level because of the modern windows and balcony-doors.It only was an easy walk to the Acropolis area, the fantastic modern museum and the other ancient highlights. A large supermarket was within walking distance too ! Efi had arranged a taxi transfer from the airport to her apartment and welcomed us in the street.She spent a lot of time with us showing on a map all the highlights and describing the apartments technical details.Her helpfulness was very great and pleasant!! We felt very well in Efis apartment and highly can recommend it! Thank you EFI !

Beautiful apartment and great location!

  • 5 of 5

We spend 2 nights in this beautiful apartment in October. What a fantastic spot!

It’s a beautiful and spacious apartment, fully equipped, modern design, comfortable beds and clean.

It’s centrally situated, very close to the Acropolis, the national museum, Plaka area and it’s only a stroll to good restaurants and bars.

Although the area is very busy there’s hardly any road noise. And we even managed to park our rental car in one of the little streets behind the apartment building.

Thank you Efi for having us in your beautiful house, we felt very welcome. And thanks for being so helpful, for your advise and showing us where to go, you’re a fantastic host.

We will come back to Athens, we really enjoyed it.

And we will definitely stay in your apartment again.

Wonderful Athens Accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 6 nights altogether in Efi's beautiful apartment and loved our time in this oasis in the busy heart of Athens. The apartment was spacious, clean, and very comfortable with lovely design details, just as it appears in the photos on the vrbo website. Even though the streets in that area are very busy, the noise level within the apartment was not a concern. It was an easy walk to the Metro station or to any of the many landmarks we wanted to visit. It is also an easy walk to a large supermarket. We felt very safe in the apartment and throughout that area of the city.

Efi could not have been more accommodating or helpful. In spite of our arriving 4 hrs. later than expected as a result of a rescheduled flight, Efi was waiting to welcome us. She then spent another hour with us, providing us with a map of downtown Athens, discussing the highlights of the area, and answering our many questions. When our return flight from Athens was canceled, Efi helped us track down airline phone numbers and personally called them with her cell phone as we did not have a phone. She was always very responsive to email questions as well. She was wonderful to us, and we will definitely stay at her delightful apartment again!

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Very nice apartment in a convenient location for doing lost of sight seeing. The Hop on hop off bus stops about 2 blocks away. We spent 3 nights in the apartment and were very pleased with it- A/C was great, wifi was very strong, beautiful large bathroom, and the kitchen was a wonderful plus over any hotel. Spacious and wonderful. The airline lost our luggage, and Efi was wonderful in helping us communicate with the airline since we didn't have a cell phone during the trip. Thanks for letting us stay at your wonderful apartment. I would highly recommend it!
