Perfect Place to Stay in Athens

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I recently stayed at Helena's apartment situated nearby the acropolis across the street from the Acropolis Select Hotel. It was just a fabulous stay. Helena was very cordial and kept in contact prior to our arrival answering questions and giving details about our stay. The hotel is situated in walking distance to the Acropolis and Acropolis museum- a fair 15-minute walk. Two blocks away are a slew of taverns/bars and restaurants (Diva Italian was tasty) and a fairly lively night life. With a mixture of tourists dining and locals walking around. So if you do not wish to travel too far to eat, this is just fine. We also did some tours with Viator and the hotel across the street was one of the pickup places, so that was a bonus.

As for the apartment- it had two bedrooms that were more than adequate and the beds were comfortable. There is a fully stocked kitchen with utensils, large refrigerator, stove, and other items. We cooked some breakfast foods on the days we were not leaving so early. And we stocked up on food at the local supermarket for drinks and food items. There is a very large dining table and couch in the living room/dining room area. And there was access to the balcony. We had a little trouble with the outdoor shades going off track, but Helena's husband took care of that after we called. They left a very helpful guidebook to think about other places to see and visit- in only 4 full days and two of those away from Athens, it was impossible to see everything in Athens. The guidebook gave apartment details, maps, and summaries of areas of interests among other things. The apartment was air-conditioned in the living room and bedrooms. The intense heat of Athens ( every day reached over 40 degrees (100 Fahrenheit) would require 24 hour running of the units to keep really cool, but they were enough to keep the apartment comfortable. Keeping the shades down in the daytime is a must.

The bathroom was equipped with a laundry machine and standup shower, as well as a wall-sized mirror. Just be mindful of the boiler being on and off.

Special kudos go to Helena's super nice airport driver she was able to arrange for us- George! From the start, we all got into some wonderful conversations. He helped us up to the apartment and gave us some extra points to know and he returned as our driver back to the airport. My only regret is not getting a picture with him. Great guy.

Would easily return in future trips!

Fantastic apartment in amazing location

  • 5 of 5

Helena's apartment is fantastic. I stayed here for my return Athens trip and unfortunately only stayed for 2 nights. Had I known how great the unit was I would have booked it for my first part of my trip when I came into town.

The apartment is 3 blocks from the Acropolis museum, which is across from the Acropolis. You are 1 block away from the metro station and near a ton of restaurants and cafes. While it may seem that the unit is near all the hustle/bustle and tourist crowds, amazingly, the street is quiet and feels like you are in a locals neighborhood.

Helena has the apartment set up to make you feel like you are at home. She has tons of information on Greece and the islands and custom tours, how to plan your stay with the apartment, and general information. One of her tours available was the sunset tour at the temple of poseidon. George picked me up and drove me to Sounio and back - I highly recommend this adventure, by the way. Amazing pictures that I know most of my friends do not have. Also, Helena has airport transfers available and it was convenient and somewhat personal as the drivers work for her so there is a level of trust. George and Nikki gave me rides to the airport and I had a blast with each of them.

The apartment is fully set up to be like your own home. I was alone on this trip as my friend had to cancel at the last minute do to work. I felt like the apartment was huge for me but in my opinion, it is great for 1 to 4 people and you would still have a lot of space.

Thank you Helena, George and Nikki for a great trip!

Simple and perfect !

  • 5 of 5

Our two night stay was truly perfect.

The apartment is complete and its geographical position is excellent.

With very reasonable price, this apartment is perfect for your stay, whether you are a couple, with friends or with children!

Ask for transportation by "Georges" ;-) when arriving in Athens ... spoil yourself with a drop in stress!

Location

You are in Athens historical center! Acropolis area has everything you may need, within walking distance. Open 16 hours per day, grocery stores, restaurants, banks, e.t.c.The neighbourhood is quiet and absolutely safe with free parking in the street in case you rent a car. Finding a parking space is difficult but just around the corner there are a couple of private (closed) parking stations.

You can also continue your walk to Thissio, Monastiraki and the flea market. All these are in Athens center and whenever you feel tired you get in the Metro and get off at Acropolis metro station which is 3 minutes walking distance from the house
