About the property

Very modern apartment in the city center, 300m from the metro.

Incredible views in Athens, especially the Acropolis and Lycabettus two verandas of the apartment. The apartment is at a walking distance from the city center and very close, 300 m, to the metro station (red line), in a very quiet and family area.

The apartment will give you the real feeling of a traveler, because the neighborhood is not touristy at all, but in ten minutes with the metro you will be in the center of the city, in Akropolis, Plaka and Syntagma Square.

The apartment combines a relaxing holiday, as it is very quiet, like the neighborhood too, with incredible views of the Acropolis and almost all the city of Athens and the ideal proximity to the city center.

All necessary shops (supermarket, bakery, grocery store, pharmacy, local taverns restaurants) are very close to the apartment.

Very easy access to Athens airport (40 minutes) and Piraeus port (15 minutes) with the metro.

Ideal location for our first visit to Athens.

  • 5 of 5

This was the ideal location for our first visit to Greece. Kostas had provided everything we needed in his comfortable apartment. He even took us to the nearby metro station to buy our tickets for the week, so we really found it convenient for our stay. It was lovely to return from a busy day to our apartment and its views. There are supermarkets and other shops nearby, but if you want to dine out a quick trip on the metro takes you to any food or other destination. Kostas even arranged for a taxi for our transfer when we left. Thank you to Kostas for being a great host.

Great host!

  • 5 of 5

Kostas was amazing to work with. I planned the trip for my boss and her family. I chose this spot because of all the great reviews Kostas had received. He did not disappoint. Dr Elena and Dr Sam were thrilled with the apartment and the time that Kostas put into making sure they felt comfortable in the apartment and neighborhood. He did walk them to the metro and pointed out the local shops on the way. He also went above and beyond in helping them organize a full day excursion to the Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion. Thank you for making this an amazing stay for them and for being so easy to work with! Looking forward to my stay in the future!

Centrally Located Apartment with a Mesmerizing View of the Parthenon

  • 5 of 5

Three things: the host, the location, and the apartment.

First, Kostas Tsiolis--the host--is a wonderful person. From Italy, having no phone, I could not contact him before my wife and I arrived in Athens. So it was from the airport, I called him, and when we arrived at his place, he was waiting outside and helped us from the taxi and ushered us to the seventh-floor apartment. Patiently, he showed its resources, how to to get to the neighborhood Metro station and use it to get around, and supplied a map and circled all the sights we wanted to visit. He also showed us the neighborhood bakery and grocery stores. After answering all our questions, he left us alone--asking us to get in touch with him if we needed anything. We appreciated being left alone.

The apartment is in the Kolonous area of Athens, not too far from the Acropolis by Metro and about 8 euros by taxi. By the way, we did not get to use the subway since, on our first day of sightseeing two-thirds of Metro systems was closed due to a strike. The apartment building sits in a friendly neighborhood of residential flats, small stores, cafes, and restaurants. We were delighted to see old men drinking coffee and smoking at the tavernas. In the evening, we found children playing soccer on the streets and riding their bikes. Apparently, it is a safe area with friendly people.

Finally, the owner of the apartment has kept his place in a tip-top shape. It was clean and stocked with many items in the kitchen pantry, including coffee, tea, salt, some Greek spices, a bottle of olive oil, pots and pans, and a big bottle of water in the refrigerator. Besides, the place came with a large dish of candy on the coffee table, two dining sets, an airconditioned bedroom, two TV sets (one in the living area and the other one in the bedroom). There are no complaints about the bathroom. The best thing about the apartment is its view of the Parthenon while seated on the living couch, especially at night when it is all lit up.

My wife and I give Kostas and his apartment two thumbs-up for being a gentleman host, having a very well-located place and keeping it well maintained.

Apartment with a view

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in Kostas' Athens apartment and it was a great "home" for a few days. Kostas was so very helpful in accommodating - originally when I had to change the date and he was patient with me during the difficulty in generating a refund through VRBO. He also gave us excellent directions from the metro, met us at the metro station, and walked us to the apartment allowing us to check in early as well. He provided special instructions and recommendations of what to do. It is clear that he has put the pride of Greek culture in the apartment through the decorations. The bedroom is roomy and it has two balconies - one with access from the bedroom and livingroom with a spectacular view of the Parthenon and Acropolis hill. It is indeed a true European shower with a handheld nozzle - so if you are not use to it, embrace the European shower. And the price of the apartment is incredible for what you get. Thank you Kostas.

Terrific Flat with Great Views of Athens

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed staying at this property in Athens. It offers two terrific balconies with wonderful views of the city and the Acropolis, a full kitchen and a comfortable bedroom and living space. Kostas is an excellent and gracious host, was easy to make arrangements with to check-in, and he also inquired during the stay to make sure we were doing well and if we needed anything. Above and beyond the call of duty. Finally, the flat offers fast WiFi and an excellent bakery is a 30 second walk. If you come to Athens I think you will enjoy this place.

Hospitality at it's best!

  • 5 of 5

Kostas was very helpful with making sure we were taken care of getting to the apartment and ready for our stay. The day before our arrival Kostas reached out to us with the news that the Metro from the airport would be on a 24 hour strike the day we were arriving which means that form of transportation was no longer available. He gave us in detail directions on using the bus system in order to get to the destination. As the for the apartment, it was quiet, clean, and felt safe for being outside the tourist areas. Thank you for allowing us to use your place!
