Paris was very accommodating to our uncertain arrival time. He met us, gave an intro to the apartment and took the time to give clear directions to the grocery, public transport, etc. He is a friendly, inviting host and gave us his cell number should we need him. The apartment is open and lovely. I would say that if traveling with couples be aware that two of the bedrooms have divider walls that do not go all the way up to the high ceiling. Visual privacy but no sound privacy at all. Just something to be aware of. The elevator would never pass USA standards of safety due to no interior doors. As long as little ones are kept to the back behind you, it shouldn't be a problem. Again, not a negative but something to be aware of if traveling from the States. The view is every bit as great as the photos. The walk to Monastiraki was 10 min for us (59 yr and over weight) though it would be less for those younger. A coffee shop just outside is a nice perk or better yet is a 5 min walk to a 24hr bakery/coffee shop. Fresh pastries and capuchino at midnight if you like! We stayed 3-9 May 2017 and our only regret is that it couldn't be longer.
Stayed five nights with my family (five adults in total). Apartment was great, with plenty of room, although it is on a busy street.. We had an amazing view of the Acropolis, all lit up at night. Watched a lightning storm one night over the mountains. Shortish walk to the main pedestrian areas, with great choice of bars and restaurants. Paris met us at Kerameikos station, and was very helpful with suggestions for our holiday.

Spent a week at this apartment, conveniently located between Keramikos and Thissio metro stations in Athens; it was easy to walk to the main sights. Paris was a great host who met us at the metro and showed us the neighbourhood, which was extremely kind of him. The apartment is newly renovated and well-equipped. The view of the Acropolis, especially at night, was fantastic. It's located on a busy street, and you can hear the traffic noise at times. A good option for couples or families with older kids; the bathrooms have showers and no bathtubs, which might be less convenient for families with small children.
