"I absolutely loved this apartment. It is a wonderful place to retreat to after exploring Athens. It is spotless, beautifully decorated, and well equipped - we did not wish for anything. Since it was my sister's birthday, she got the lovely bedroom and I slept on the couch. The couch is extremely comfortable to sleep on and there is a foam insert to use on the divide between the sections, a mattress pad, and extra blankets. The roll shutters on the windows are remote controlled and when shut, provide a completely dark apartment for sleeping. There is a handy tablet loaded with tourist information for you to use. There is a small lift to get you up to the fourth floor but you have to take the stairs up to the fifth floor. The terrace was my favourite part. We had looked at other options closer to old town but we were really glad we chose this location. There are lots of restaurants in the area and a good super market that is only a couple of blocks away. It was really simple, safe and inexpensive to use the subway which was only a couple of blocks away too. We took it to get everywhere we needed to go (Acropolis, the port, etc.) Our hosts, Yannis and Rena, also arranged taxi service from and to the airport for us and the driver was professional with a very clean, smoke-free cab. We loved the entire experience and would highly recommend this apartment to anyone."
Let me start off by saying that the hospitality that Rena and Giannis showed was above and beyond what anyone could expect. Rena and Giannis are so warm and welcoming!! From the moment I arrived I felt like I was at home! Their place was spotless, modern and very cozy and they went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable (recommending top tastes of Athens and key sights to see based on my itinerary and interests!). The apartment also has a tablet with locations to travel to along with basic information regarding Athens, which was extremely helpful. They also checked in to see if I was settling in OK and if I needed anything and even booked my airport transfer :)
The apartment is roughly a 5 min walk to the transit (all the routes and metro lines that I needed to take were detailed in the tablet). To get to downtown Athens it was ~5 metro stops and took me ~10mins. The train is very inexpensive about 2 euro one way and the ticket is valid for all trips taken within an hour and half time window. The apartment is conveniently located next to some restaurants bakeries, coffee shops and grocery stores.
I would strongly recommend booking this apartment!! It was a wonderful experience!
My stay at Ma Maison far exceeded my expectations! From before I checked in, Giannis&Rena were excellent with communication, answering any and every question I had. The penthouse is beautiful! Perfect location if you want to be far from the city center noise and bustle. It is only a short Uber ride away (never paid more than 7 € to get to the city center). The neighborhood is quiet, friendly, and safe with many little cute cafes and grocery store options available. It is also very close to the metro station. Metro covers the whole city and it is ideal if you want to move by public transportation. Rooms were exactly as pictured - beautiful, super clean and spacious. The outdoor balcony had some great views - of the Akropolis and Parthenon (the view at night is incredible when they are lit up.) Giannis&Rena are such incredible hosts! They gave us many many great recommendations for our short stay. It is unfortunate I did not stay in Athens longer to try each and every one of them out as I did try several and absolutely loved it! All in all, would definitely recommend staying at Ma Maison! I will surely be back to Athens and will not even think to stay anywhere else but here. Thank you so much for such a pleasant stay, and making me feel like home :-)
Hello Giannis and Rena, your home was great and most of all perfectly clean. I liked it very much. I really loved that the amenities are top class and include everything that you might need (I could not believe that you even had a toothbrush, toothpaste and slippers). Thank you so much for the great gift you gave me (a perfect cup that has my name on). The next time l will come back to you and l hope to manage to stay for several days. Kisses Loukia.
The apartment was perfect. Perfectly clean, close to the metro station and in a very safe and quiet neighborhood. Ideal for someone who wants to use it for business purposes as it is located close to everything. You can take the metro, the buses, the national road, or Acharnon and Liossion which are the main streets to the center. You can go everywhere within 15-20 minutes. The amenities include everything you could ask (breakfast with butter and greek honey, disposable toothbrush and toothpaste, slippers, coffe, teas, chocolate and the list goes on).
Giannis and Rena are very friendly and willing to give you all the help that you may need.They even give you a personalized gift.
At the end of a tiring day the balcony with the panoramic view of Acropolis and Lycabettus is the best way to relax.
Great, perfectly clean apartment!!! Giannis and Rena gave us a very warm and friendly welcome. Despite the fact it was our first time booking through airbnb, we will definitely repeat it. The apartment was fabulous, with excellent decoration and a wonderful view of Athens from the balcony on your return from sightseeing, with Acropolis and Lycabettus lights on. The amenities are excellent and everything was in place, even in the smallest details. The gift that they gave us upon our arrival was a wonderful thought and our girls loved it. We strongly recommend it.
