It is said 'location location location' when it comes to real estate. Couldn't be more apt for this lovely apartment literally at the foot of the acropolis. Walk up to the cute terrace and you'll see the acropolis walls towering over you. Fabulous at night with the lighting and all. Within walking distance of the famed Plaka tourist district and just about every major 'must see' sight in Athens, this 2 bedroom place in a quaint 'island village' setting far exceeded anything we expected on this our first trip to Greece. For us Americans the apartment may be small but is typical Euro size and has 24X7 hot water and Wi-Fi. And air-conditioning if you are planning a visit in summer. Was presented to us in excellent condition.
Can't say enough of the graciousness of Rania and Spiros (her friend and taxi service provider). They were simply superb. Starting with being picked up by Spiros at the airport to being dropped back 6 days later, Spiros' tips and suggestions including a guided tour of Corinth and island hopping cruise was spot on and made our trip efficient and thoroughly enjoyable.
Especially for you first time visitors - don't have any apprehension in making reservations at the shadow of the acropolis. You'll thoroughly enjoy the stay. And for you vegetarians (we are), just about every restaurant in Athens had enough options. You won't go hungry!
This lovely apartment is located just below the Acropolis and has beautiful views out to the city. It is located in a quiet and characterful neighbourhood within easy access of all sites. The apartment is one of the nicest we have stayed in; immaculately presented, quiet and cosy. The owner, Rania, answered all our questions promptly. Staying in the apartment added hugely to our enjoyment of Athens. We would definitely return to stay in the apartment on our next trip to Athens!
This homely everything you need apartment is ideal for the perfect stay in Athens. Rania is a great host. Will definitely be returning.
We had a brilliant stay at this excellent and perfectly located apartment. It really was in the 'shadow of the Acropolis' at the edge of a cluster of 'island' style houses a stone's throw away from the Acropolis and Plaka, though peaceful on a quiet lane. Amazing views from the windows, balcony and the lovely roof terrace. Fresh, sunny, colourful and great to come back to. Will be booking again for our next trip to Athens and recommending to friends and family. Thanks Rania!

Can't say enough about this apartment and your hosts Rania & Spiros. If you want to get a taste of local life in the historic neighborhood of Anafiotika nestled under the northern slope of the Acropolis with a view across Athens to Mt. Lycabettus then this is the place for you. This is the apartment above Rania's mother's home where Rania & Spiros (a close friend) grew up. Listen to their stories of how they used to climb the rocks and play in the caves of the north slope of Acropolis (before the fences were installed) and think of what an amazing childhood they experienced. Rania is also a very talented photographer and will likely have you pose for photos at her place for her personal scrapbook.
You have 2 bedrooms, a complete kitchen (but you will eat out every night anyway), a nice cozy living room, side balcony and of course the incomparable rooftop terrace where you are literally a stone's throw away from the north slope of the Acropolis. Spiros will pick you up at the airport and immediately give you an impromptu tour of Athens and environs. If you want (and I strongly recommend you do) Spiros is available to drive you to the outskirts of town on a day tour of local attractions. We chose Delphi but Spiros extended that tour with visits to several other very special places on the way that would not have occurred to us to visit. If you have the time to allocate a day and would really like to get a taste of Greece then I would say to put your trust in Spiros to choose the itinerary for you and take you on his choice of sites to visit. You will not regret it.
