my wife and i have just returned from our first visit to athens for our birthdays. (nov 5th to 10th) we booked this place after a bit of research and its location is perfect!! we didnt need to pay for tours or the tourist bus, everything is so close. as for the apartment, it is as it is in the photos, very comfy and in a side street away from the noise. met the owners as agreed , paid , got the keys, quick explanation of the apartment and left to enjoy. take a right as you come out of the main door, to toms corner and on the left is a supermarket and a deli/bakery which we used every day. we got a free athens map from the airport and carried it with us, take your phone out and use the google street map and you cant get lost. lots of bars and restaurants, dont be scared to wander around. a walk to monastraki metro station(10 mins) to the flea market, worth a visit. as it was november, most of the attractions were half price including the acropollis. ENJOY. MANY THANKS TO THE OWNERS.
