Location description from owner

Why both packing and unpacking when you can venture out to the port of Pireaus and catch a flying dolphin to Hydra or Aegina and be back in your own comfortable bed that night?Delphi is a great day trip, visit the lovely mountain village of Arahova en route - we can even arrange a driver for your trip, or help you reserve a car and do it on your own with our provided maps! The Argoloid peninsula is the perfect day trip for everyone: Archeology, beaches, wineries and great food, make this a day to please everyone, while getting you back to your comfortable Sealy bed that night.
Historical and modern Athens at your feet! While the historical centre is just a 10 - 15 minute walk from the penthouse, en route you will pass the Old Olympic Stadium, Hadrien's Arch and the Temple of Zeus, Syntagma Square and the changing of the guard in from of the Parliment. You can also visit the President and Prime Minister's homes en route to Syntagma, and join the Evzones as they march to their positions in front of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier!!Trendy and chic Kolonaki is located just a 10 minute walk from the penthouse, and en route you might want to visit the National Art Gallery, the Byzantine Museum, the War Museum (great for airplane enthusiasts!), the Benaki Museum and the Museum of Cycladic Art.

“Family and friends loving Athens”
Our five night stay in the Acropolis View A&B was wonderful. All thirteen of us were very comfortable with the accommodations. We travelled from the United States and for the first time that all 13 of us have been together considering that we reside in Las Vegas, NV, Reno, NV and Houston, TX. We all enjoyed the city of Athens, the culture, the locals and of course the food! The penthouse is located near the center of Athens that it was easy to get to the Acropolis, Acropolis Museum, Temple of Zeus, and the old Olympic Stadium as well Plaka (souvenir shopping). I have extended family that lives in Greece so it was easy for us to get together. I want to thank Carole and Basil for taking the time with all the questions I had prior to arrival as well as thank Nadia for her help while we were staying at the penthouse. Nine of my travelling group visited Greece for the first time and they enjoyed it so much that they want to return. Thanks again for a wonderful experience from beginning to end from all of us. Tom.
Tom, We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay in our penthouse and glad that we could help make your trip a success. We look forward to welcoming you, your family and friends back to Athens on a future visit.
My family and I are talking with my in laws to go in Greece for a trip as we have some cousins overthere. Having two young children (8 an 5) we decide to rent a flat in stead of going in a hotel. The contact and the level of reactivity and professionalim of Carole (the owner) have been amazing i have to say. She put us in teh best condition to feel confident at teh time to sign our rental contract. What can I say about the flat...it is just perfect...the view from the rooth is crazy, the location is perfect, anything you need in terms of food, shopping, taxi, bus....is down the stair. I only can add that the pictures appearing on TripAdvisor are far below the reality. The flat is 100 times nicer in real!! :-) Also, special thanks to Nadia (the local manager) who is always ready to help if you have any question. A BIG THANKS FOR THE FANTASTIC SOUVENIRS WE WILL KEEP FOR EVER AFTER OUR STAY IN YOUR GREAT APPARTMENT!
“Don't bother to look at anything else.”
The apartment: Large, spacious & has everything & anything you could need from cooking utensils to large fluffy towels. Alpha Plus is on the 6th floor & shares the entire top floor with another apartment (the Beta- which is also very nice). The only thing above you is the gorgeous roof top deck. The apartments is located on a busy street. However, the owner does have another apartment that is on a pedestrian street if you are not interested in street noise. The pictures do not represent the apartment- it is considerably nicer!! The location: Direct access to many restaurants, shops & quaint cafes right outside the front door. You are away from the touristy area @ the Acropolis which allows for a more authentic Athens experience. It is about a 30 minute walk from the Acropolis. If you would rather take a cab- they are everywhere & cost $5 one way. The owners: Warm personable & genuinely want you to have a great experience. Nadia- the property manager lives 2 block away & is very helpful & knowledgeable about the area. Carole, the owner was honest & quickly responded to all/any requests. When I ask Carole for her recommendation regarding which apartment to rent- she called the Alpha the "wow" apartment. I definitely agree.
“The apartment was even better than the pictures.”
The apartment was spacious. Our family of 6 had PLENTY of room. The owners make you feel as if you are at home. They provided great tips, maps and neighborhood restaurants. I would definitely recommend this to friends looking for a place to stay in Athens
“Excellent Accommodations and Tour Assistance”
10 of us stayed at the Acropolis Alpha Plus apartments in June of 2013. We found the apartments absolutely perfect. They were immaculate upon our arrival and everything was explained to us by Carole and Nadia(?). Lots of room for our group and everyone commented on how nice they were. It was very nice to come back at the end of the day, sit on either the balcony or the rooftop terrace and just relax with a glass of wine. Fantastic experience. Also big thanks to Carole for arranging our tours, they were superb and went exactly as expected. Overall the Athens experience was fantastic and it was all due to Carole and her willingness to help. If we go back to Athens, I will definitely be speaking with Carole again. Thanks so much!!!!
“We had an amazing time, in this fabulous home!”
Words cannot describe how perfect this home is. We enjoyed our stay very much, the house has everything you need, it is very well appointed to accomodate a large family. The terrace is amazing, the views are spectacular, and Carole was amazing, she always answered my Emails right back, when we got there she gave us recommendations on dinning options and always made sure we were taken care off, she arranged all transportation and tours. Cannot wait to go back to Athens and stay at this amazing place.
“The best place for vacation”
The apartment is incredibly nice,the view for the terrace is amazingly beautiful,especially at night since you can see the entire well lit Acropolis from the distance.We are extremely happy with the apartment in terms of functionally design and modern equipments.That was the best decision to rent the apartment.
“All the comforts of home in a great location”
The rooftop garden with barbecue, views of sunrise/sunset was tops. The kitchen supplies were good and the welcome treat basket a nice touch. Plentiful, comfortable seating. Beds very comfortable. Bathrooms clean and supplied with products. Bathrobes available. It was great to have Wifi access and free use of the phone to call home. Another plus was the wash machine/drier.
Apartment was great. Every detail for a seamless holiday had been covered by Carole and her team including drivers, tour guides & apartment manager. We travelled as a family group of 10 and had both the Alpha and Beta apartments that we're joined by a small corridor.
