I run study abroad programs in Athens, Florence, and Paris for University students, and I wish Athens Studios would expand to Florence Studios and Paris Studios just so I would never have to stay anywhere else!
If you're looking for plush bathrobes and jacuzzi tubs, this isn't your spot. But, if you want a nice flat in a great location, a festive atmosphere, and helpful staff at a budget price, you've found it. Athens Studios provides simple, clean, spacious (by European standards) apartments two blocks from the new Acropolis museum.
There's a simple (hostel style) breakfast available downstairs every morning, and a cafe with lots of other tasty breakfast options, if you'd like something more elaborate. That same cafe, the Fish Cafe, serves tasty fish and chips and stunning hamburgers in the afternoon. Also downstairs from the apartments, you'll find the Athens Sports Bar, where you don't have to miss a minute of cricket or Aussie rules football, and you can occasionally catch a glimpse of some other sports. After a hot, sweaty day in Athens, it was awfully nice to come back to a 10e pitcher of Mythos and relax only a few steps from my flat.
The Studios have a lift, so you don't have to climb the stairs if you don't want to. The kitchens are equipped with all the basics. Towels and Sheets are provided and changed regularly.
I get a little confused when I read some of the negative reviews posted about AS. After staying there for more than 3 weeks on two different occasions, I am very confident that they are diligent about keeping the place clean. My apartment was spotless. And, since there's someone at reception 24/7, I'm really not sure why someone didn't go downstairs and say something about the noise that was bothering them. In my experience, the staff worked very efficiently to solve problems and make everyone's stay comfortable. I didn't have any problems with noise or disturbances (at the height of the summer backpacking season), but I know if I did that someone at the desk would've helped me out.
I have no complaints about this place. None. Go check it out.
