The owner is very nice and took care of everything for us. He was very flexible and helpful. The place was perfect, everything was new and clean. My wife, son and I enjoyed this place very much. I would definitely recommend and stay here again. Please keep up the good work, making sure to keep the place clean and new looking after every traveler. I appreciate this in a vacation rental. I wish all places i stayed was like this one.
First, this apartment really is pristine - immaculately looked after and equipped. In a "real", un-touristy neighbourhood a few minutes walk from the Acropolis, perfectly situated to get to all the places you might want to see, with a supermarket and local shops on the doorstep. John's welcome couldn't have been warmer, and his arrangements for cabs to and from the airport worked very efficiently.We would certainly return, and have no hesitation in recommending it highly.
The host Ioannis (John) was waiting for us on arrival and helped with the luggage and getting us settled in. Very well organised with maps and heaps of advice of how to make our stay more enjoyable.
The apartment is large, clean, newly refurbished and very comfortable and we stayed for almost 3 weeks in total over an 8 week period. The free wi-fi worked very well, with a modern kitchen, large lounge, big screen TV (basic cable) and a good bathroom.
Location is AWSOME with metro, bus and tram less than 2 minutes walk away so travelling to very part of Athens is very easy. The Acropolis, Plaka, Kolonaki, Syntagma Square and Ominia are also 10 - 20 minutes away on foot. We did loads of exploring and shopping and just walked home, stopping for a coffee on the way home.
All the conveniences are very close - the local shops include supermarket, butcher, hairdresser, bakery, restaurants (with free delivery), bank, post office etc so we had everything we needed within very easy reach.
Balancing everything out was the price (about the same as a 4-star hotel) and for our length of stay (12 days + 5 + 1 days) we didn't get any housekeeping (when we asked it was an additional 35 euros), resupply of consumables (only enough for a few days only eg; toilet paper).or discount on cost. For our last 1 night stay we were charged an extra 30 euro premium as it was one night only.
Great place to stay and will definitely use it again and but for the quibbles above would have been exceptional.
First of all: Highly recommend this apartment. Located away from busy streets but just a short walk to the heart of ancient Athens. There is an excellent cafe a block or two away. Everything, really, is a short walk away. Up a flight of stairs and through the front door there's a comfortable couch waiting for you. A new full kitchen, including a dishwasher, let's you cook if you want. The bedroom is very comfortable and well appointed including a safe. We didn't use the entertainment system but it's all there with a large tv and audio system.
Everything is great, worth it and wont regret the booking.
First everything you want is here, cooker, dish washer that i didnt bother myself to use (old school guy) coffee maker, boiler, microwave, water heater, cleaning tools and vacuum machine if you want to keep your place clean.
Whats near by is supermarket 50-100 meter walk, groceries around, restaurants,bars, bus stops and metro if you want and car rental offices. Forget to mention you can order in just tell the restaurant the location and delivery will come to your apartment (5 star)
We cooked our breakfast in the apartment all the goods came from the supermarket near us.
What i dont like is nothing (thumb up)
John is the owner thank you for your support and help.
If you want a taxi john can arrange one for you.
Quiet safe area near acropolis 10 mins to 15 mins max walking distance.
Overall my rating 5/5
Apartment is modern with all you need for an enjoyable stay in Athens. Owner is helpful and it is easy to walk to all the historical sites. Very recommendable.
I stayed for 2 nights together with my 2 friends. John was very helpful and hospitable. We arrived really late but he was so welcoming and made us feel at home. The flat is in very good and safe location. Fully furnished, very clean and charming. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who visits Athens
