I was introduced to this wonderful property by my accompanying friend Johnnyb who along with 2 others, made us a happy group of 4;-) Being told (at the last minute) this is a no-smoking property AND no TVs in the rooms, I figured I'd make a quick exit and B-line it out quickly to a more 'modern' establishment!
Now having the experience of a 3-night stay (and wishing it was way longer!), I can honestly say this stay at the Spot has been one of the highlight experiences of the entire trip! Lee and his gracious wife run this place in old-world B&B style in the true tradition..to include smiles and hospitality way above and beyond the call of duty..like getting up at 4a to put a pot of coffee on for us before our taxi arrives for our horrendously early morning flight back to Athens! Of course, that includes the arrangements FOR the cabs at that hour!!
As mentioned, the location can't get any better..smack Central in the heart of the Old Town within walking distance to all the major attractions. The property itself exudes in warmth and love so graciously bestowed upon by it's owners who meticulously restored this charming home and provide a 'real' experience in what a 'stay in Greece' is all about! I don't think any pics here will do it justice! It's one of those places you have to see and 'feel' for yourself to get a true picture! The details are amazing..and it's always those 'little' things that make a place a particular gem..where everything falls into place meticulously..this is it! Everything from the minute you SEE it..no less enter, is welcoming..the little breakfast room where everything from fresh bread, cheeses, eggs, etc., are served along with coffee/tea buffet style (computer here as well!), to the charming little garden in the back where you can bring your breakfast to enjoy..along with a smoke! The rooms along with the entire property are exquisitely decorated..all to match..with Greek photos and artist's works decorating the walls and hallway! Lee's even added an incredible acoustic system where he can 'rock' the place with just about any music style you may enjoy!
Bottom line, the Spot is a destination on it's own..and like it's name states..is 'TOPS'! Thank you Lee for a very special and memorable stay! Your hospitality will not be soon forgotten..but rather long remembered and retrieved in thoughts to again re-live and enjoy;-)
