wonderful

  • 5 of 5

we stayed here for Xmas week with our family of 8. It was a wonderful place really special and had never really expected it to be that big. There are lots of balconies and views from all angles. We loved it here . Some of the kids had exams coming up so were able to revise at the huge table . The kitchen had lots of pots and pans ,plenty of cutlery and plates and a big fridge. Bonus af handy nearby supermarket. We walked everywhere , only caught the tram once down to the sea as a break from sightseeing. Lots of space, airy light and we liked that there wasn't too much clutter, table plenty big enough for eating and playing cards. perfect location to go backwards and forwards seeing a few sights then chilling looking out over the roofs of Athens. We were there on a sunny fab week but if it had rained this would have been a cozy spot to spend the week. Would go back in an instant . Wonderful week. especially good to have a kettle and a toaster and fab oven. lots of good sized mugs as well. A great place

Perfect spot to be in Athens

  • 5 of 5

This Penthouse is the perfect spot to be in Athens. Walking distance to everything, never needed a car, bus or metro. The views from the apartment are amazing with clear views of the Acropolis with the entire city and the Temple of Zeus seen from the dining window and all outside patios. The pool is perfect for an afternoon dip. The caretaker Mrs. Lina is wonderful and very helpful. The only suggestion to improve would be to add chaise lounge chairs in the pool area and to have additional outdoor chair placed on the patios and we enjoyed playing cards and night with a great view.

Excellent Location and Beautiful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

There were 6 adults on our trip to Athens and we enjoyed this apt. very much as our home base. It is very conveniently located and we were able to walk almost everywhere we wanted to go. Public transport is close by as well. We loved the view from the two terraces, and the pool was wonderful as well. Our only complaint was that there was very little patio furniture, and we would have used it had it been there! Also the dryer part of the washer/dryer combo didn't seem to be working, but the drying rack was just fine! We would highly recommend this property to any type of group. Mrs. Lina was very helpful and got us acclimated very quickly.

Parthenon View - Athens

  • 5 of 5

We are an extended family, ranging in age from 74 to 13 (3 teenagers) who rented this apartment in July. The unit was very clean and well maintained. The location was great as we were able to walk to most of the main attractions of Athens. It was extremely hot and humid and for the most part the air-conditioning was able to contend with this weather condition. The pool was wonderful after a day of sightseeing. Sunrise and sunset on the Acopolis was an added feature. Our only complaints are minor. There was only one full shower in the unit - a second full size would have been nice. There was no coffee maker. There was virtually no information about Athens - sights, restaurants, getting around, maps, etc. Information on the city would have been very useful. There were 9 of us in the unit and it was very comfortable for a group of this size. We would highly recommend this unit for a family that is wanting to visit Athens and Greece.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

What a plesant surprise this penthouse is! We were 5 adults traveling from the United States and this was our first stop after overnight flight and 6 hour layover in Istanbul. We arrived after midnight. Stratos made the whole experience amazing as we were completely taken care of before we even arrived. There was a taxi waiting for us at the airport and took us directly to the penthouse. In the morning Mrs, Lina arrived to check us in. She could not have been nicer and so easy to work with. She made the whole experience even more enjoyable, esp. with the bottle of wine she gave us! The location is very ideal to get to any of the "spots" of interest without being directly in the congested areas. The view are undescribable and take your breath away. This was the perfect place to start our Greek adventure, I would book this accommation again in a heartbeat. Was so nice to have 3 floors of living and all the outdoor space. The five bedrooms were perfect for our needs. Overall one of the best experiences I have had on homeaway.com. If you are going to need a place to stay in Athens for a group of 5- 7 this is the place, call Stratos today!! And tell Mrs. Lina we said HI and thanks for everything!!

Fantastic location & apartment

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 8 adults stayed in the apartment for four nights in late October. The location of the apartment is fantastic, less than 10 minutes away from the Acropolis metro station (next to the museum) and 5 minutes from the Lewforos Vouliagmenis tram stop. All the ancient sites are within walking distance; we only used the metro once. Restaurants and cafes are close by in the Plaka area. There is a Mini market, bakery, grocery shop and pharmacy literally 2 minutes walk from the apartment. The apartment is well kept and clean with a large dinning and separate living area. Being a large group, two set of keys were provided which made our life a lot easier. We were very pleased with our choice of accommodation in Athens. The communication with the owner and the apartment rep while making arrangements was smooth and clear. I would definitely recommend it.

Owner's Response: We are pleased that the group had a good time in part contributed by the excellent central location of the apartment as well as the spacious accommodation for larger groups. The apartment rep assistance was key to to ensuring the group was installed to the flat and assisting with all queries and information on the nearby amenities.
