Reviews for this host's other properties
Der Kontakt zu Helena war absolut zuverlässig und sehr, sehr nett.
Die Wohnung ist für einen Besuch in Athen bestens geeignet und sauber.
We spent 3 days in Helenas appartment. It's a great place to stay in the center of Athens situated in a very nice neighborhood. We enjoyed to sit on the terrasse with a marvelous view on the Acropolis. That' s really fantastic. The appartment is perfect for 2 people and well equipped. Helena is a very nice host. We really recommend this place for exploring Athens. Thank you Helena!
La habitación está muy limpia. Tiene una terraza estupenda con vistas a la Acrópolis. La zona es maravillosa, llena de cafés y bares con mucho encanto. Esta muy bien ubicado, con transporte cerca. Aunque lo más recomendable es ir caminando a todas partes ya que está muy cerca del centro y es casi todo peatonal. Helena y Chrisa son encantadoras, te ayudan en todo momento y los transfer que ofrecen funcionan muy bien.
Nous avions choisi d'utiliser les services de See Greece qui ont en charge la location de cet appartement. Accueil chaleureux à l'Aéroport par Chryssa, personnage haut en couleur qui nous à permis de faire une belle entrée en matière à Athènes, merci Chryssa. L'appartement est propre, calme, une clim qui fonctionne bien, bonne literie, très fonctionnel de part sa situation (bon rapport qualité /prix). Il se trouve au pied de la colline de Philopapos que l'on traverse pour se rendre à l'Acropole et au centre ville. Hors zone touristique, petits restaus à proximité pas chers et bons sur la rue piétonne Georg Olympiou. Nous vous recommandons "Olympiou Amalthia", on y parle Français et anglais pratique pour bien choisir les plats, la cuisine y est faite avec des produits frais et de qualités, c'est copieux, le vin rouge est bon, tout cela pour un prix très raisonnable et un accueil simple et sincère. Essayez le fromage de brebis chaud au miel, c'est une tuerie, nous avons laissé des cartes du restau dans l'appartement. Vassilis très ponctuel nous à servi de guide avec bonheur pour les excursions hors Athénes. Si vous souhaitez mieux comprendre la Grèce et les Grecques, n'hésitez pas d'utiliser les services de See Greece, ils nous ont permis de réussir notre séjour. Héléna parle le Français couramment, cela peu être utile en cas de gros pépin.
Retenez bien le nom de la rue et le N° de l'immeuble avant de quitter vôtre appartement, nous avons tourné en rond pendant 3 heures le premier soir pour retrouver l'appartement.
Alles is netjes en de bedden zijn heel goed. Alles op loop afstand in het centrum.
Appartement correspond à la description, hormis l'absence de banne sur la terrasse. Propre et fonctionnel.
Excellente situation en centre ville proche de la plupart des lieux touristiques.
Nombreux restaurants de tous niveaux aux alentours, ainsi que des supermarchés, des boulangeries et tous autres services nécessaires.
Très bon séjour à Athènes grâce à Héléna et son équipe. Merci à eux pour leur réactivité et leur disponibilité.
Beautiful apartment! It was a great time to be a guest of Helena. The apartment was clean, the view from the balcony beautiful. We hope to come back here again! Greetings :))
What a warm reception bij Cryssa! She made us feel very welcome and right at home.
The apartment was very nice, it had everything we needed/expected and more (shampoo, showergel, toiletpaper, washingupliquid were all provided). Lots of handy information available as well. You
could tell that everything was organized from the guests perspective and that made our stay a great one.
The location was great too, lots of bars and little restaurants at a few minuten walking distance. The apartment itself is in a very quiet street, day and night. We loved the roof terrace.
So all in all: you can't go wrong with this one!
GOOD ACCOMODATION FOR 35 EUROS PER DAY !! ( NOT MORE )!! BECAUSE IT IS ACTUALLY A BASEMENT...
We do not met Helena, but Chryssa and we have been absolutely well received. Chryssa helped us, is a very kind person, she's great! She made our transfer. Unfortunately we have had some minor problems but it was a problem. We had not hot water! At first time, the water did not hear, just cold. Ok, we called Chryss who said would take a plumber to the place next day. We find a button, a interruptor, that could be the reason. Not the boiler disjuntor, the interruptor. The disjuntor we did turn on. Maybe this interruptor should be on too. The water started to heat, then I called Chryssa saying that it was ok. But, five minutes later, the water come back to be cold!!! It just stayed heated for five minutes! Then we had to wait half an hour to it heat again! In the medle of the shower! It was Easter, so I decided do not call Chryssa again, but I had to call: the washing machine did not work!!! I called but Chryssa just turned the calling next day, it was not worth for anymore, so I gave up. The place is near all interesting points of Old City (Acropolis, Museus, etc)., but is very bad about markets and other commerce. It does exist, but is not near and not good indeed. So, I do not know if I would come back to this place again. It has a good kitchen, the bed is awsome, the neighborhood is very tranquil, but in the end I payed for a place withou hot water and washing machine, and it was included. Problably do not come back without a very deep research on Windu. About Chryssa, she's great, I just got disapointed because we needed she back the calling the day we called, because we need the washing machine working properly. If it was ok, a manual in english would be great and necessary!!! Also, the plumbing of thwe shower needs a review: when we tried to take a frozen shower, the bubbles came up from the floor!!! It got the floor wet and slepery. I really do not feel I paied a fair price for what I do (not) had.
