“Amazing view!”
Reviewed 11 October 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The view is really the highlight of this place; it is incredible to lie in bed and have an unobstructed view of the Acropolis. The location is also fantastic; you are in the heart of Athens.
The place is very well decorated and appointed. The bathroom is modern & has a nice roomy shower. The bedroom is nice but small; the size of a regular hotel room. There isn't really a closet or storage space. Therefore, this place is ideal for a short stay. Longer and it can be a bit tight!
There is a small refrigerator, a nespresso machine & a kettle for hot water. There is a beautiful terrace with chairs and a table. Lovely for sitting out for breakfast or a dusk drink! In the summer, afternoons can get a bit warm, as you are in direct sunlight. But otherwise, you have an incredible view and a terrace to enjoy it from.
The owner is very helpful and the concierge in the building is kind and goes out of her way to help.

“Surreal”
Reviewed 26 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This was the surprise packet of my holiday. Walking out on to the roof and seeing that it was all to yourself and the best view possible was mind boggling. I can only recommend this with all my heart for the relaxation you feel, sitting with your bottle of wine watching sun set over the Acropolis. This property is perfect for a couple or solo, you are in your own little word with everything at your fingertips. Please, do yourself a favour.

“The perfect little apartment...”
Reviewed 16 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

I can't thank Nausikaa enough for making our 2 days in Athens so comfortable. It started with our late arrival on Thursday night, which he helped arrange the best taxi driver (Nikos) ever to come pick us up, took us straight to the apartment, and handed us the keys. It was our first time in Athens, and having all of this arranged eased our worries.

The apartment was spotless and modern, and locates on the rooftop of the building. It was quite small, but got the job done. However, the 3-sided balcony was immense! OMG...the view was unreal and incomparable. Straight ahead was the unobstructed view of the Acropolis, and the lively streets below from the sides. There are a few chairs and a small table on the balcony which we used to have tea and coffee every morning. Laying from the bed, we went to sleep and waking up to the Acropolis. Our last night there, we decided to hit up A for Athens, a rooftop bar, which was within walking distance. It was labor getting to the top, fought through the crowd to grab a drink, and a spot to stand. People flock here for a drink and the view of the Acropolis. After 10 minutes, my husband and I looked at each and said, "Our view is better, and without the craziness!" We finished our drinks and headed back to our balcony! (LOL!)

As for the location of the apartment in Plaka, it is strategically ideal! We walked everywhere. It is within 5-15 minutes from all the major sites--temple of Zeus, the Acropolis, the Ancient Agora, Syntagma Square, etc... To top it off, the apartment is located right in the middle of amazing restaurants, both trendy and holes in the wall, alley-side cafes, and endless bakeries. This was our favorite part of being in Athens--strolling the neighborhoods and discovered hidden little gems. We sat outside everywhere to eat, drink, and sipped on coffee.

I hope you will enjoy your stay as much as we did!

“The best studio in Athens !!!!!”
Reviewed 17 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

What can I say?
Direct from the airport,2min from Syntagma station (easy,left just after Zara ;-)),close to good restaurants, a bakery,a long street full of shops, bars and restaurants (again) and the tourist attractions are easily accessible on foot.
And now,the studio...8th floor...a big terrace and an astonishing view on all Athens and mainly,the Acropole !!
The studio is clean and cute,the bed is good and the italian shower nice. A little haven of peace in the heights for a couple !
I recommend !!!

“Perfect!!!”

Me and my boyfriend have just returned from a 4night / 5 day trip to Athens, and we stayed in Nausikaa's apartment! I can't be anymore happy. Initially we weren't too sure as there were no previous reviews -this is why I am leaving such a large review!

Nausikaa had arranged for their taxi driver friend to meet us at arrivals and take us to the apartment - not only did he just take us to the apartment, he pointed out certain areas and even showed us some sights along the way. AsNausikaa was unable to meet us as we arrived quite late in the evening, the taxi driver gave us the keys.

The apartment was very central! Round the corner from syntagma square - which has direct connections to all major sights and to the port. The area itself is full of shops and restaurants so finding somewhere for dinner was easy. There was a bakers just across the road which sold fresh breads and massive bottles of water (very cheap compared to the busier/tourist areas) which we went to most mornings :) I think the apartment was on top of a business building - not too sure but we were on the 8th floor (penthouse!!) with an elevator to the 7th floor and a very very small flight of stairs to the apartment. We rarely saw anyone else, the occasional person in the lift if we left early and the lady who was down at reception - she was lovely and friendly, she spoke little english but was always asking if we were OK and happy with everything, we also have the keys to her when we left.

The apartment itself was lovely - clean, comfortable and had a spectacular view! Sitting on the bed and you can see the acropolis! The balcony provided an incredible and un-interuupted view of the acropolis, there was a little table and two chairs so we were able to sit on the balcony in the evenings and enjoy the view.
The bed was very comfortable - however, there were only two very thin pillows. It might just be my personal preference of lots of pillows but it would've been nice to have a few more as we ended up sharing the two pillows between us (piling them up to one thicker pillow). We were given a complimentary pack with coffee and fruit teas, (I couldn't find anywhere that actually sold English breakfast tea) There are mugs, espresso cups and a coffee machine and some glasses and wine glasses. However there is no cutlery etc(which we expected there wouldn't be as there is no kitchenette) However we bought a bowl and some cutlery for cereal and making sandwiches for our day trips at a nearby shop. The air con was wonderful too - not very important but it was so hot it was nice to be able to cool down. The television had multiple channels, but we mainly had it on CNN to get the world news. There was wifi but my phone was unable to connect to it, however my boyfriends phone could connect but it was slow, I'm guessing its because we were at the top of the building, but it was perfect for downloading some street maps onto his phone.

All in all the apartment was perfect, excellent central location with beautiful views. Nausikaa was really good with returning my emails, I asked a lot of questions and each one was given a great response. We were told that our damage deposit would be refunded upon departure either via paypal or in cash from the lovely lady downstairs, ours was refunded during the holiday via paypal which was very handy for some extra spending money on the last day! We had a perfect holiday - Thank you so much!!!

I have uploaded a few pictures - however these were taken on our final day once we had packed up so it doesn't look as nice as when we arrived. When we arrived it looked exactly as the pictures provided show :)
