‘Got a question? Here’s the answer.’

The most popular things our guests ask us about are explained here. Alternatively, we’re
here every day 09.00 – 22.00 local time to answer any questions you have – just give us a call or send an email.

The most FA question is “how’s ‘thank you’ in Greek?”. And the answer is ‘Ευχαριστώ’, it’s pronounced ef-harry-stó! 🙂 tonal at the last “o”

Check in /Arrival

stations are Monastiraki and Thiseio metro stations (depending on which
apartment you’re staying). The metro ticket from the airport costs €10.- per
person and the metro ticket from Piraeus port costs €1.40 per person. Tickets
are sold in any metro station.

You may store your luggage at our front desk and take them later during the day.

Upon arrival we’ll explain to you how to check out. In most cases it’s as

Area / archaeological sites

All of our apartments are located in very safe neighborhoods and away from any “dangerous” parts of Athens.
Most of our apartments are in quiet streets and neighborhoods. However, some of them have noisy weekends. Psyrri area is noisier than Thiseio and Plaka.

The big shopping malls open from 9am to 9pm on weekdays and from 9am to 8pm on Saturdays. Sunday closed.
