“Wonderful jewel of an apartment!”

We were looking for an air-conditioned apartment, in a central location that would comfortably sleep 7. This apartment did not disappoint. It is even prettier than in the pictures.

Even though it's just steps from Plaka, it is in a quiet location with many non-touristy restaurants near by. We walked everywhere from this location.

The place was clean, beautiful and there was even orange juice, milk, water in the refrigerator and ice in the freezer.

My in-laws slept in the room with the double bed, my 3 kids (15,13 and 9) in the room with two twin beds and a cot and my husband and I on a futon in the living room. We were comfortable and we loved that it had split unit type of a/c so everyone slept cool and comfortable.

The apartment has two terraces but we only used one, the one that faced the Acropolis, obviously. The kitchen was large and had everything you could possibly need. Regardless, we just ate breakfast there and lunch and dinner out.

The one drawback is that it only had one bathroom but we made it work. The owner was not there to meet us (I think she was away on vacation) but her associate of 25+ years, Mrs. Gonzalo, was there and she was very, very nice. She even offered to do laundry which we only had done once. And she set it out to dry in the terrace and it was great.

We loved this place. It is in a great location and very reasonable for the amount of people it accommodated. I highly recommend it.

PS It has a very antiquated elevator that works. But we only used it to bring the luggage up when we arrived and down when we left. The apartment is on the top floor.

Thank you for your comments. I am very happy you appreciated the apartment and enjoyed your stay. Comfort and cleanliness are our prime concerns. This is why we provide proper beds with high quality mattresses and bedding. Also, accuracy of description is a very high rated concern. Therefore, our listing describes in great detail the futon beds and fold up beds that are provided when a large party reserves the apartment.

“WOW!!!! Do NOT hesitate to book this apartment!”
Reviewed 19 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This apartment is AMAZING! The hosts are fabulous and could not be nicer. The apartment is exceptionally well furnished with many antiques and has a large variety of books. The furnishings and beds are very comfortable and the rooms are large. But the view...absolutely BREATHTAKING. The kitchen terrace has an unobstructed view of the Acropolis and much of the city. You can sit there all day and night long looking at that view. Marica and her husband Aleco were very welcoming but not in the least intrusive. Their associate Ruth even helped my husband with laundry! There are lovely restaurant and shops in the area and you can walk everywhere from here. Wifi was fantastic much to our teenage daughters delight. We loved our stay in Athens and would love to go back for a longer visit. I would not hesitate to stay here again and highly recommend this apartment.

“Excellent location”
Reviewed 15 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We chose this apartment for our 3 night stay in Athens based on it's location in Plaka and I'm extremely happy with our choice (2 adults, 2 children ages 11 and 8). Nikis Street is a great location. You are steps away from restaurants, shopping, and smaller grocery stores but the street is quiet and calm at night. The apartment is very spacious and clean. Wifi is fast, air conditioning worked well, beds were very comfortable. Kitchen is quite large with all the basic necessities provided, including coffee. Some special decorative features of the space include (1) an extensive reading collection with books written in English, Greek, and French; (2) antique tables throughout the space; (3) family photos in the living area. These features really made you feel you were staying in a home versus a generic space. The apartment has two deck/outdoor spaces, one in front and one in back. Both are decorated with various flowers and plants and the back patio has a truly lovely view of the Acropolis. The building has a small (2 person) working elevator, a nice amenity to avoid carting luggage up 5 flights of narrow stairs). Taxi stands are located right down the street. The owner, Maria, was a pleasure to work with and was very accessible and responsive via email. I highly recommend this apartment and would stay here again on a return visit to Athens.

Wonderful location to the Acropolis and other ancient sites. Very spacious and quiet apartment. We were able to walk easily to everything we wanted to do. Maria even allowed us to check in early and arranged taxi service at our departure. Amazing view from the outdoor sitting area. Would highly recommend.
