The apartment is close to a city park in Thissio area. This area is in the traditional center of the city close to Plaka, the graphic neighborhood under the Acropolis hill. Also, it is close to Monastiraki and the Acropolis Museum. The metro station in Thissio is about 1 minute’s walk, too.

- 1 PSX 3 with games
- Sound system with CD, MP3 and radio

The apartment was clean. No odors. Bed was very comfortable. A market was 3 blocks away. A bakery was about a block away. Close enough to walk to many great places. Kitchen was small and had a small table to eat on, but for the average traveler, it would be fine, we had children so we had to get creative, but it was ok. The owners are very nice and willing to help you if needed.
Super Location & Comfortable Apartment
We spend a few days to visit Athen for the first time. And we were very impressed about the location – it was very quiet and a kind of residential. The taxi driver (Christos – you should asked Panos if he could arrange a pick up from the airport in case you need) promised that we would be only a 20 seconds walk away from the Acropolis area. And it was true. Many nice restaurants nearby, and the next metro station is only a few minutes away. Even so a bakery and super market.
The apartment is really nicely furnished and staffed with everything you need. The only thing you should aware of: there is only one really bedroom. And two pull out sofas in different areas of the apartment. But all are good to sleep.
The hosts were also very friendly and helpful.
So all in all we can definitely recommend this apartment.
Many thanks to Panos and his mother Elli!!! Jean & family
Great apartment with more than perfect location near metro-ststion and near the centre and all the tourist-attractions! Eterything from booking to departing went well. Owner Panos and his mother Elli were very helpful. Everything except the kitchen was great. The kitchen small and not so very well equiped, but if You are not looking for making any big dinners You will manage. I can more than recommend this property!
No doubt , best place ever …
This is a lovely lovely home and it is located in the most beautiful area of Athens ( 5 minutes walking to the main sites ( Akropoli , Monastiraki , Plaka ,…) and just in front to metro Thision (100m) (Something to take into account to avoid the expenses of the taxi from the airport) . The house was gorgeous, clean, and comfortable and believe me , exactly as it looks in the pictures . We were a 6 members family and we were plenty of room .
The owner was helpful since we arrived and she even provided us with everything we needed to manage with our 1 year baby ( bed , food-mixer,…)

The owners are very nice and willing to help you if needed. The downside of the apartment with children is the large amount of breakable items, but we removed them all and put them under the staircase and then set them back up before checking out. Bring soaps and shampoo for the shower, not included.
Tasteful interior, central but quiet location.
It felt like being at home: very tastefully furnished, cosy apartment in walking distance from the main historical sites of Athens and a lively restaurant area, yet in a very quiet neighbourhood.
beautiful apartment, great location
We had a lovely stay in this cozy, clean, and well decorated apartment. The place is just as the pictures and boasts a great loft on the second floor that’s wonderful for relaxing. The kitchen is small but tidy with all the basic amenities covered that you would need if you are just touring..because there are great restaurants nearby anyway so why cook? Just about everything is walking distance…metro, supermarket, pharmacy, restaurants, shopping, and of course, the acropolis! Panos was quick to respond to any needs that came up during our stay.
We were so pleased from beginning to end. From our early communication to arrival through departure all went smoothly at our lovely apartment. A taxi was arranged and met us at he airport for a reasonable 30 Euros. We got a ride and a tour into the city with lots of tips from a great fellow, Kristos, who also picked us up for our return 3 days later. The apartment was everything we expected and more and we were made right at home by our hostess. Also the location is superb and so easy to walk everywhere and access all the sights of the old Athens.
Don’t hesitate to book with Panos and his mom. You will be delighted. Thanks to them for such a lovely stay in Athens!!!
Great location – very comfortable house
We had a wonderful stay here. It’s a great neighborhood – very quiet and residential, but just a few steps away from the Acropolis area. Lots of great restaurants nearby, and very easy access to a metro station. The house itself is really nicely furnished, with everything you could need, and our hosts were extremely helpful and welcoming. Highly recommended.
We just concluded our 10 day trip to Greece, with the last 4 nights spent in this lovely apartment. The bed was comfortable, the linen high quality. The bathroom is well appointed with nice tile and shower. Very clean and very well maintained. The pictures are exactly as shown in the listing, however, there are a couple differences that should be noted. There is not a 2nd bedroom. The loft does have a couch but not for sleeping. There is a floor pillow that can be used. The second area for sleeping is a couch, with a pull out trundle, in the living room. While we were able to make this work, it was a little tight on space having 3 teenagers sleep in the living room. There is no “view”, although there is a patio for sitting. The patio is just outside the entrance to the apartment, attached to the main house. With the weather in August so hot, we were not able to take advantage of the area but it is decorated nicely to sit there. While these things didn’t affect our vacation, it is something to consider if you definitely want/need a second bedroom and a view. Panos was always reachable by email and his mother, Ellie, was a perfect hostess. Thank you for the lovely parting gift! I would definitely recommend this apartment and would certainly return there when we come back to Athens. Danielle and Family
PERFECT LOCATION !!
This place is just like the picture. It was very clean & well maintained. This property is in walking distance to everything, which is great. The metro , the Acropolis, & Flea Market, is only a 5 min walk. There is a bakery around the corner, & places to eat in less than a 5 min walk. There are coffee shops that are open 24 hours in the area. One thing is that this is not a 2 bedroom. There is a pullout sofa, in the living room & a loft, with a couch, but, it does not pullout. There is actually only 1 bedroom. The kitchen is a hideaway, very small, but it will work. Panos’s mother & wife Vicky were very friendly & helpful. I would definitely stay there again. I would also recommend this place to others.
Beautiful and comfortable apartment in a great location
I think most people who use VRBO are like us and want a place in the thick of things. This place really fits that description. It is less than 2/10 of a mile, 240 meters, to the Thissio Metro station, a quick walk through a park. Just as close are many very good restaurants. Walk another block and there are more restaurants with a view of the Acropolis, that is beautifully lit at night. We walked all over Athens, averaging 5 miles a day but cabs are waiting near the restaurants and metro, if you don’t feel like walking.
The apartment itself is quite lovely and roomy. It is also very clean. There are two units and we were able to stay in one while my in laws took the other. It was great for each of us to have our own apartments but still be close.
Ask the Owner to arrange for Christos to pick you up at the airport. His cab is very roomy and he is a wonderful guide. He also took us to Delphi and Sounio.
We came to Athens to run the Athens marathon on Nov 8th, & booked this place for 6 nights. Its an old house that has been completely refitted into a 2 room apartment. It was perfect for 3 of us – my wife and I took the downstairs bedroom & my sister-in-law slept in the loft upstairs. ( technically its not a bedroom, but its very cozy & can sleep 2). The location was great, we walked all over, (its a nice, safe neighborhood) made the circuit around the Acropolis through Plaka & Monastiraki & back several times – its about 4 km to go all the way around. Thisso metro station is very close by & convenient. There is a bakery, supermarket & plenty of cafes to dine in very close by, as well as an authentic taverna just around the corner, where you buy your lamb chops by the kilo! We even walked back from the Marathon finish at Kalimarmaro stadium to the house. Ellie (Panos’ mom) was a wonderful host, she even arranged a day cruise for us to Hydra, Poros & Aegina, and Christos picked us up at the airport, even dropped us early on Sunday morning in Marathon for the race start, and was extremely helpful. Of all the amenities, I found the pocket kitchen most delightful, an entire functional kitchen packaged into a kitchen cupboard sized space. The washer and the drying rack also proved to be handy, to wash all that soaked through race gear. And the wi-fi was flawless. All in all, we had a great stay & I would recommend this place to any one.
Great place–fabulous location
Elli, Paros’ mother, was warm and welcoming. The aprtment was very clean, efficient, and nicely done. Both Elli and Paros were available for what we needed. With all those good things, by far the best feature of the apartment was its location. For the major historical sites, for the Central Market, the apartment was never more than a 10–15 minute walk. Next time back to Athens, it is exactly where we would stay.
Well appointed apartment within easy walking to major tourist sites
We were a family traveling with our children on vacation, and this was a great spot close to the metro and to the Acropolis. The apartment was well equipped with a loft with a sofa and trundle for the kids to sleep in their own space. We mostly ate at the many local restaurants, but were able to keep leftovers and make morning tea and coffee in the compact but functional kitchen. The owner’s mother met us to give us the keys as well as an introduction to the apartment. And for hot summer days when we were fm doing a lot of site seeing, the air conditioning felt great!
We had a enjoyable stay!
We had a wonderful experience! We were met at the airport by the taxi driver recommended by the owner. At the apartment, the owner’s mom met us and showed us around the place and offered her assistance. We were treated very well. The apartment had the necessities for our family of 4, including 2 young children. The Acropolis, Monastiraki and Plaka districts were all within walking distance. It was just a few minutes to the Thissio metro station, and there was a supermarket and bakery nearby. We recommend this apartment.
