Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in our apartment, and we really felt like we lived like locals which made our experience that much more amazing! Helena and Chryssa were extremely helpful every step of the way and even gave us a private tour when we got off the plane. The location was close to the metro and everything that we wanted to do which made getting around the city very easy. We would definitely recommend this to other people looking to explore Athens.

Non-tourist Athens

  • 3 of 5

This apartment listing was a bit deceiving. I could see the Acropolis but it was quite a ways in the distance and I could only see from the balcony. Taxi drivers had a hard time finding the address. Very few people in the area seemed to speak Greek but there were lovey restaurants, coffee houses and a grocery store within walking distance. The drawbacks I had with the apartment were that the toilet and the sink were in the same space as the shower so everything got wet. I had to remove the toilet paper, the towels, and the trash can each time I showered. Then I had to wipe it all down so I could use the mirror (the only one in the apartment). It's very tiny. I had to buy paper towels as there were no kitchen cloths to use - just one nasty sponge. The space is very small and two people would be tripping over themselves. It was okay for the two nights I stayed but I wouldn't want to be there for longer. I doubt that I would suggest staying there to any of my friends.

Owner's Response: Dear Irene It is crystal clear that you did not read the description or saw carefully the photos of the apartment. I STRONGLY suggest, that next time you read the description before you book anything. Because you can NOT call , "a bit deceiving" the listing, when the description clearly indicates the size of the apartment (25m), the location or the view from the Balcony. I do not know what made you think (or which photo ) that you will have a view of the Acropolis from inside the apartment. It is your right to think that the area of THISSIO is away from the Acropolis but certainly it is not the truth. I really do not understand what you are talking about taxi drivers or People of the area not speaking Greek(?) , but i know for sure , these things have nothing to do with the apartment and certainly there should not be mentioned in an apartment's review. So , please next time do not accuse somebody else for your lack of reading or things irrelevant to hosting Regards Helena

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

This was a great experience from start to finish. The host was super friendly, and the flat was in a great location, within walking distance to the acropolis. The flat is small so if you have more than 2 people, or are expecting a lot of space this may not be the place for you. If you are looking for a nice place to call home base while in Athens, in a great location, and at a very fair price, I'm not sure it gets much better than this.

Ottima posizione, caldo

  • 4 of 5

Appartamento posizionato in ottima zona nei pressi di Thissio. Collegamento metro vicino e centro a pochi minuti. Ottima terrazza spaziosa con vista acropoli. Interno piccolo, soprattutto la cucina. Accaldato, nonostante la presenza del condizionatore che di notte preferibilmente non è utilizzabile. Connessione internet buona i primi giorni di soggiorno, balzante i successivi. Proprietari gentili e disponibili.

Excellent !

  • 5 of 5

Studio très agréable dans un quartier calme, tout près des restaurants et des cafés situés face à l'Acropole. Grands placards de rangement. Propreté parfaite grâce à une excellente femme de ménage. Serviettes de toilette et produits de première nécessité à disposition, et tout ce qu'il faut pour faire une cuisine de vacances (plaques, grille pain, frigo, vaisselle). Canicule aisée à supporter grâce à la climatisation. Plaisir de dîner tard le soir ou de prendre son petit déjeuner tôt le matin sur la terrasse, avec vue sur l'Acropole. Internet tout à fait bien malgré quelques petites pannes, très pratique pour maintenir mes contacts avec mon Université et les autres chercheurs avec lesquels je travaille. Ascensseur en prime ! Supermarché à 3 mn à pied, avec plein de bons produits grecs, bons fruits et légumes ! Marché de Monastiraki à 15 mn à pied, très coloré et vivant. Et accueil très sympathique des propriétaires qui parlent français et anglais ! J'oubliais encore un détail : Chryssa, l'assistante d'Hélène Fornaro est parfaite pour gérer les problèmes. N'oubliez pas de la prévenir si votre avion arrive en retard ! Je recommande très chaleureusement ce lieu ! De là vous pouvez aller vous promener dans les Musées, sur les sites athéniens, et les cars qui desservent Mégare (rue Eptahalkou à côté de la station de Métro thissio) ou Eleusis (A16 place Eleutherias : prendre rue Ermou, rue leokoriou et rue dipylou). Les autres cars desservant l'Attique sont accessibles par bus ou métro : http://www.athensguide.com/practicalinfo/suburbanbuses.htm. Possibilité de nombreuses excursions en rentrant le soir à Athènes. Le port du Pirée est aussi tout proche (prendre le métro à thissio). Je vous envie déjà de me succéder dans ce studio !
