Helena's place is beautiful. The view from the terrace allows you to see the sunrise above the mountain. The place accommodated both of us well, with WiFi, hot water, and clean drinking water. Plenty of restaurants are located on the other side of the street with delicious food, large portions, and plenty of options. Helena and her husband were very welcoming and informative hosts. Our trip to Athens was made much easier with their information and help.

We arrived at 6 pm and I call Vasilis in order to have the keys and Vasilis responded immediately. The apartment is on the 5th floor and Vasilis and his family lives on the 4th. The apartment is like a studio with a spacious balcony with a very nice view. He explained everything he was friendly and nice. We stayed only one night there but we knew the area and there are some very nice restaurants and cafes in less than 1 minute walking distance...

The studio apartment, Hosted by Helena, Wow!!!! words cannot express our gratitude for all your kindness and compassion with your Phenomenal Outstanding Accomodations. We fell in love with it and of course our host was superb but unfortunately we could not meet :) I am grateful to Helena for guiding us on trips with all extra details, restaurants, shops, and the necessities needed during our stay. I absolutely recommend people to stay and experience the apartment if you are visiting Athens .

Helena and Vasillis were extremely helpful and friendly hosts, willing to answer any questions we had. They offer tours with a personal touch and cheaper than any other we found. The apartment is everything they said it would be, great location, clean and homely, and excellent value. The restaurants surrounding the area are amazing, good food and good value, but be warned, massive portions... Irish eyes to big for bellies. Very easy to transport to city, manageable even for nervous travellers. Almost everybody speaks English very well but they appreciate if you try the please and thank yous in Greek. The locals in the area were very friendly and willing to help with directions or suggestions. Due to the location of apartment you get a very authentic Greek feel which was lovely, to mix in with every day Greek life. However, wherever you are make sure to look both way and cross the road with caution. We'd recommended to anybody, we very much enjoyed our time there.
