Reviews for this host's other properties
Wow just what we needed for a 6 day stay in Athens, 2 bedrooms with good beds, small kitchen with everything you need, bathroom adequate, lounge area large with huge verandah. Restaurants and supermarkets at your door step. The base of the Acropolise only a 5 minute walk. Greeting and key hand over completed with ease. A great place to stay.
They came to pick up at the airport at night, Elena and her friend two very sympathetic and nice women. The apartment is 10 minutes from the acropolis spacious and very clean, in a very quiet neighborhood, let us all necessary information. A stay of 10. Totally recommended.
Nos vinieron a recoger al aeropuerto de noche, Elena y su amiga dos mujeres muy simpáticas y agradables. El piso esta a 10 min de la acropolis amplio y muy limpio, en un barrio muy tranquilo, nos dejaron toda la información necesaria. Una estancia de 10. Totalmente recomendable.
Advantages of this apartment are particularly favorable and quiet location in a residential area near the center. The friendly and helpful landlord and hospitable neighbor made that we quickly felt at home. The landlord to wait half an hour in front of the reception on the first day I found less enjoyable; a text message I had appreciated about delays.
I do not know, the default in Athens but we found the apartment - especially the bathroom - which primitive. Renovated in 2014 is not much notice. Apartment building stairwell eyes and poorly maintained. The terrace turned out - different than I had seen from the description - generally accessible flat roof of the building.
Pluspunten van dit appartement zijn de gunstige en vooral rustige ligging in een woonwijk vlak bij het centrum. De vriendelijke en behulpzame verhuurder en de gastvrije buurman maakten dat wij ons er snel thuis voelden. Dat de verhuurder een half uur op zich wachten voor de ontvangst op de eerste dag vond ik minder plezierig; een sms-je over vertraging had ik op prijs gesteld.
Ik ken de standaard in Athene niet, maar wij vonden het appartement - vooral de badkamer - wat primitief. Van de renovatie in 2014 is niet veel te merken. Flatgebouw en trappenhuis ogen slecht onderhouden. Het terras bleek - anders dan ik uit de beschrijving had opgemaakt - het algemeen toegankelijke platte dak van het gebouw.
Our family of 5 very much enjoyed the apartment, overall. We were met promptly by a kind and enthusiastic associate who got us settled in. The apartment was close to all the places we wished to visit (by foot)! The space was roomy, clean , and quiet. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes. The terrace was very large, but we wished that there was an awning, as you could not be out on it in the direct sunshine. Also, all 4 deck chairs were broken (seats ripped and could not bear weight). There were travel books available for our use, and were appreciated. Would recommend the apartment!
The area of Helena's apartment is quiet and safe.
The location is perfect - straight connection (several tram station) with the center of the city and at the same time with the beaches at the seaside.
There is a park at the same street and large shopping area in the distance of one tram station.
The apartment is very clean and comfortable.
Full information is clearly given for the guests - concerning all the things a tourist is looking in the city.
The host is very friendly, open and offers her sincere help. In fact you fill like under your mother's care.
When visiting Athens again I will try to come back to Helen'a apartment.
We were very warmly welcomed at the airport and everything was fine during our stay. The apartment is quite spacious and can easily accommodate 3 couples. The sights were easily accessible on foot. Also shopping were very close. The balcony was a bit narrow but still offered seating for 5 people. The terrace didn't use, The TV had only 3 programms but because the most of the time we were in the city and on the beach, this did not play a role. All in all, we can recommend the apartment very much.
The stay at Helena's flat was great. We felt welcome and received prompt replies to our questions and requests. Everything is according to the description and the accomodation is equipped with all the things one possibly needs. The neighborhood is safe and several restaurants, cafes and supermarkets are just around the corner. It takes not more than 5 minutes to the subway and all the touristic sites can be reached within two or three stops. I can recommend the accomodation and would stay their again.
A lovely apartment located in the quiet street, very central to the Placa. Perfect for us four sisters, separate sheets as desired.
Airport pick up was perfect, even though we were very late, also pass at the airport was perfect. Highly recommend the apartment and service from Helena.
Yours sincerely Signe
En dejlig lejlighed beliggende i rolig gade, meget central til Placa. Perfekt til os 4 søstre, separate lagner som ønsket.
Afhentning i lufthavnen var perfekt, selv om vi var meget forsinket, også aflevering i lufthavnen var perfekt. Kan varmt anbefale lejligheden og servicen fra Helena.
med venlig hilsen Signe
